This review is from: LEGO Star Wars 8036: Separatists Shuttle (TM) (Toy)
Lego continue their Clone Wars releases in 2009 with set 8036: Separatist Shuttle.
The shuttle itself is a nice replica of a Haor Chall Engineering Sheathipede class transport shuttle and features an opening front hatch for the cockpit and fold-up landing legs. There is also a nice mechanism in the side that, with the turn of an axle, opens the rear doors and allows access to the inside where there is a sliding seat platform with room for one figure.
The best thing about the kit is really the five figures that come with it. There are 2 standard B1 Battle Droids, both armed with black blaster rifles and an OOM series Pilot Droid to fly the ship.
For the first time we also have the treacherous Nemoidian Nute Gunray and the Rodian ambassador Onaconda Farr. Both are great figures and a welcome addition to the Lego universe.
The shuttle is 19.5 cm long, 9.5 cm wide (at the landing legs) and 17.5 cm tall.
The kit comprises 234 pieces (not including figures and weapons), there are 7 decals to apply and construction time is about 20 minutes.
A nice little ship and worth it just for the figures.
