Star Wars Universe: fits with the Clone Wars animated series episode 'The Nightsisters'. Very in vogue as it seems that Savage Opress has several more adventures in him.
The build: has some small and fiddly bits - but otherwise quite a quicky for an older or more experienced lego builder. The recommended age is 7-12 as whilst it is fiddly, it is quite a small kit. The main gripe is the stickers. There are quite a few & you have to look carefully, so you get them stuck on the right bits and the right way up - adult assistance needed to apply these. We like that 2 of the speeders can be detached (we use 1 of them as a 'stand-in' speeder for Count Dooku, in Geonosis games).
The mini-guys: You get a new design Anakin with a black Jedi knight robe. Nightsister Asajj Ventress is a cool new mini-figure, she has a white face & hands rather than flesh colour, her head has Sith style tattoo print on the front & back, and her face is rather scary (maybe should have gone to spec savers?). Nice leg print tho. Nightbrother Savage Opress has a horn attachment to his head to give him proper horns (ours came with a spare - it is minutely small an easy to lose). He has a really cool scary face print & body armour.
The best bit about the set is getting Ventress and Savage Opress, (for a reasonable price rrp £25.99). It has 214 bricks although some of them are rather small - if you are working out value for money. We feel Anakin is a bit of a token good guy - it would have been better to have had Count Dooku (in pyjamas) or Nightbrother 'Feral'. The array of weapons that comes with this set is a real plus - you get Ventress' split double lightsabers in red (1 spare hilt), a double ended lightsaber in red for Savage, a battle axe, and of course Anakin has his blue lightsaber.
Overall: Its great to have some dark force wielding villains to play out Star Wars games.
