LEGO Star Wars 8038 The Battle of Endor
LEGO Star Wars 8038 The Battle of Endor
Offered by Vintage Sets 4 U
Price: £199.99

5.0 out of 5 stars "Your team will land on the forest moon of Endor.", 2 Aug. 2009
Lego continue to celebrate their 10th anniversary for Star Wars Lego with set 8038, the massive Battle of Endor set. This set has a whopping 12 figures and features the Endor bunker, a Rothana Heavy Engineering / Kuat Drive Yards All Terrain Scout Transport, 2 Aratech 74-Z speeder bikes, an Ewok glider and an Ewok catapult.
The speeder bikes are similar in construction to the one with 2008's 7676 Republic Attack Gunship and feature positionable flight controls and outrigger vectrals.
The bikes are 13 cm long, 3 cm wide and 3 cm tall.
The Ewok catapult is much better than the one from 2002's 7139 Ewok Attack and the swing launching mechanism really allows you to hurl rocks a long way. It comes with 4 rock projectiles to fling at the nearest Imperial walker.
The catapult is 9.5 cm wide on base, 13 cm long (to end of catapult arm) and 4 cm tall.
The Ewok glider, like the catapult is better than the on from set 7139 and there is a small hook at the back which holds the stones in. You open it out and the stone drops off onto some unsuspecting villain below. The glider comes with 3 stones and the clear stand allows for the glider to be angled in any position through 90 degrees. The only problem is that the clip attaches to the figure's feet and comes off easily when moved.
The glider has a wingspan of 17 cm, is 12.5 cm long and when attached to the base can stand up to 19 cm tall.
The AT-ST is quite possibly the best version of the vehicle to date. Built more with the UCS AT-ST design in mind is has several play features. On the back there is a large cog and when you turn it the legs swing forward and back to simulate walking. The main Taim And Bak MS-4 twin blaster cannon on the chin rotates up and down through 120 degrees. The light E-Web twin blaster cannon on the port side of the head rotates the full 360 degrees and the Dymek DW-3 concussion grenade launcher on the starboard side also rotated the full 360 and has a firing flick missile. The roof has a top hatch but the whole thing can life up as well. There is room inside for one figure.
The AT-ST is 14 cm long (from chin gun to aft leg guard), has a foot span of 10 cm and is 20 cm tall.
The bunker itself is a great playset but collector's will probably want to get two to make the whole thing. The front doors slide open by using a cog mechanism inside. The round domes on each side of the roof at the front, when pressed down, cause the front and side wall panels to explode outwards to simulate battle damage.
the two side walls can hinge open for easy access and play. There is a control station in the middle with two rotating seats. The two side areas are identical and feature 2 power regulators, a control panel and 2 clips, one with a black blaster rifle and 1 with a black heavy assault rifle.
When closed up the bunker is 25.5 cm wide, 19.5 cm long and 10 cm tall. When opened out the bunker is 42 m wide, 20 cm long and 10 cm tall.
You get a whopping 12 figures with this set and 8 of them are new. For the Imperial forces there's an Imperial Trooper and 2 Biker Scouts.
There are 3 brand new Ewok figures; Chief Chirpa (complete with ceremonial staff), Paploo (armed with a bow and arrow) and Wicket (with spear) all of which are nicely detailed and look great.
There is also Han's assault team which consists of Han Solo, Chewbacca (both of which are reissues) and 4 new figures in the shape of Princess Leia in Endor outfit, R2-D2 with new body markings and 2 Rebel Commando Troopers. The troopers are different. One sports a beard and is armed with a black heavy assault rifle and the other is clean shaven and has a black blaster rifle. They both have brilliant Endor combat helmets and backpacks.
the kit comprises 821 pieces (not including figures, weapons and accessories) and total construction time is about 90 minutes.
A fantastic Lego set and one of the best playsets they have ever released.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Shadow Squadron, tighten formation - call in.", 2 Aug. 2009
Lego continue their Clone Wars releases in 2009 with set 8037: Anakin's Y-Wing Starfighter which is a great model of the Koensayr Manufacturing BTL-B Y-Wing Starfighter first seen in the Clone Wars episode 'Shadow Of Malevolence'.
The fighter features an opening front cockpit, angling control panel in main cockpit, rear gunner station, postionable upper cannons, droid compartment for R2-D2, opening aft compartment to store lightsabres and a missile launcher in the lower hull.
The missiles is one of the rubber tipped missiles with launcher - the same type as found in 2008's 7675 AT-TE Walker. However, through an extension mechanism the firing control comes out in the droid compartment. You place R2 on the firing stud and by pushing him towards the aft, the missile fires.
You get three figures with the kit. The first two are reissues, the Clone Wars Anakin and Ahsoka, both armed with their trademark lightsabres. R2-D2 is a new figure and now sports a grey dome (like the one in 2008's 10188 Death Star) but he has Clone Wars style decals on his body and dome.
The Y-Wing is 42.5 cm long (from forward gun tip to aft thruster vectral), 18.5 cm wide (from port to starboard engine) and 8.5 cm tall (from base to top of gunner station dome).
The kit comprises 555 pieces (not including figures, weapons and missile), there are 2 decals to apply and construction time is about 30 minutes.
A brilliant starfighter and a must have for any Republic Army.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Nute Gunray cannot be trusted.", 2 Aug. 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Droids on the perimeter sir!", 2 Aug. 2009
Lego continue their Clone Wars releases in 2009 with set 7748: Corporate Alliance Tank Droid battle pack.
The tank droid is a good replica of the Corporate Alliance NR-N99 Persuader Class Droid Enforcer and is a much tidier construction than the previous release in 2005's 7258 Wookie Attack. It has full rotating tread track which runs around the whole body and the front stabiliser treads can angle up and down depending on the terrain. The lower cannon on each side is actually a flick missile which you can launch at the enemy. The 'eye' sensors on the top can also be angled out through 90 degrees.
The kit also includes 4 figures. There are 2 B1 Battle Droids which are both armed with black blaster rifles but best of all for the first time there are 2 Jet Troopers. These are standard Clone Wars Clone Troopers with white Mitrinomon Z-6 jetpacks and black blaster rifles and look really good.
There's also a plank platform that you can put the troopers on and launch them into the air.
The NR-N99 measures 17 cm long, 8.5 cm wide and 11 cm tall.
The kit comprises 186 pieces (not including figures, weapons and missiles) and construction time is about 15 minutes.
A great kit a and welcome additions for both the Separatist and Republic forces.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Republic Fleet is here, we must withdraw.", 1 July 2009
Lego continue their Clone Wars releases in 2009 with set 8039: Venator Class Republic Attack Cruiser and while the scale is drastically reduced this is nonetheless a great replica of the backbone of the Republic Fleet.
Built using a similar construction framework to 2006's 6211 Imperial Star Destroyer, this predecessor is packed with play features and great detailing.
The forward module roof hinges open to reveal Palpatine's office inside. there is a rotating throne chair, control panel, storage box with a hologram of the Death Star and room for guards as well. On the outside there are laser cannon batteries, one on each side, and they can move up and down covering about 170 degrees of fire.
The aft section comprises several compartments. The hull plates on the wings hinge up through 90 degrees and the lower wing tips flatten out as well.
In the front there is a removable bomb bay drop pod. This contains 5 bombs and by turning the axle on the port side the cogs inside release the bombs onto your targets below.
Behind the bomb bay there is a turbolaser cannon which slides along a platform so it can be deployed on either side. It is built on a turntable so it covers about 280 degrees rotation and there are two red tipped flick missiles in the top of the gun. There is a seat on the side for a Clone Gunner.
The upper hull of each wing has 4 turbolaser emplacements which can rotate the full 360 degrees and the cannons can also be positioned through 180 degrees as well.
The upper middle section houses a carry handle which swings up and out of the forward part. behind it is the bridge which can actually be removed by pulling it out of the back. There is room inside for a Clone Pilot.
At the aft the end panel hinges down and there is an escape pod contained inside. The pod has an opening side canopy and retro thrusters that angle out through 100 degrees on either side.
You get five figures with the kit. Two are reissues, a Clone Pilot and a Clone Gunner. For the first time this kit includes Chancellor Palpatine, who has a great evil look on his face, and 2 Senate Clone Commando Troopers, decked out in their blue armour and each on has a black heavy assault rifle.
The Cruiser is 54 cm long (forward to aft hull), 30.5 cm wide (port to starboard wing tip) and 18 cm tall (lower hull to upper command hull).
The kit comprises 1125 pieces (not including figures, weapons, missiles and bombs), there are 10 decals to apply and construction time is about 90 minutes.
A brilliant capital ship and a definite must have for any Republic space fleet.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Imperial troops have entered the base!", 1 July 2009
Lego continue to celebrate their 10th anniversary for Star Wars Lego with 7749 the Echo Base battle pack.
The pack consists of a snow wall, a Golan Arms DF.9 anti-infantry battery turret, a BlasTech E-Web heavy repeating blaster and a collection of figures. For the first time ever this kit contains a brilliant Lego Taun-Taun.
The wall defences and the turret can be linked together or displayed as two pieces. The platform behind the wall that the Troopers stand on is hinged so they can tip back and fall off to simulate hits in battle.
The turret features an opening rear hatch with room for one figure inside, opening top hatch with seating for one figure and dual firing flick missiles on either side of the main gun which can be launched by pushing a level at the rear. the upper module rotates the full 360 degrees.
The Taun-Taun is nicely done and had moveable arms and removable horns. It comes equipped with reins and a saddle which has storage clips on both sides and stands an impressive 9 cm tall
You also get five figures with this set. Han Solo (in Hoth gear) is featured riding the Taun-Taun and is armed with a black blaster rifle and a pair of electrobinoculars.
There are 2 Hoth Rebel Troopers with backpacks. The visors on their helmets have been remodelled and made to look more like the ones from the film as opposed to the old 'fighter pilot' goggles we've had to date. One trooper is armed with a black blaster rifle and the other has a black heavy assault rifle.
Finally there are two Imperial Snowtroopers. One is armed with a black blaster rifle and the other comes complete with a BlasTech E-Web heavy repeating blaster and power box. The E-Web is the best version of this cannon to date and looks great.
The snow wall is 11 cm long, 7 cm wide and 4 cm tall. The turret has a 5 cm wide square base and the upper module is 7cm wide and 11 cm long from aft to cannon tip.
The kit comprises 115 pieces (not including figures, weapons and missiles) and construction time is about 10 minutes.
A fantastic army builder kit and a great companion to 2007's Hoth Rebel Base.

Star Wars: The Legacy Collection Ugnaught (BD No.43) [Toy]

5.0 out of 5 stars "You found him in a junk pile?", 30 Jun. 2009
Hasbro continue their new Legacy Collection for 2009 with wave two consisting of figures from The Empire Strikes Back. Continuing the success of last year's build-a-droid each one in this wave comes with a component to build the silver protocol droid U-3PO.
The next figure in the line is #43: Ugnaught. Collectors should not that there are two versions of this figure available. One is decked out with a work apron on and the other is an Ugnaught that you see in a grey suit walking in the corridors of Bespin.
The only other Ugnaught figures released were in a twin pack in the POTF line in 1998 and this one is superior to that issue in every way.
He has head (rotational and vertical), shoulder (rotational and abductional), elbow (rotational and vertical), forearm (rotational), torso (rotational), hips (vertical) and knee (rotational and vertical) articulation which gives him a good 19 ranges of movement.
He comes equipped with a white tool case and a console which would fit with any Bespin diorama or goes well with the POTJ 2001 Carbon Freezing Chamber playset.
There is also the left arm of U-3PO as well, the remainder of which is with figures #38 - #42 in the current line.
A great little figure and a must have for those Bespin dioramas.

Hasbro continue their new Legacy Collection for 2009 with wave two consisting of figures from The Empire Strikes Back. Continuing the success of last year's build-a-droid each one in this wave comes with a component to build the silver protocol droid U-3PO.
The next figure in the line is #42: Hoth Rebel Trooper. Since the relaunch there have been 3 other Hoth Troopers and a new one would've been a welcome addition to the ranks. However, this trooper is a remake of the POTF 1997 Hoth Rebel Soldier.
He has head (rotational and vertical), shoulder (rotational), elbow (rotational and vertical), forearm (rotational), torso (rotational), hips (vertical), knee (rotational and vertical) and ankle (rotational and vertical) articulation which gives him a great 21 ranges of movement.
He comes equipped with a black BlasTech DL-44 heavy blaster pistol (which fits into the holster on his right hip), a white backpack, white green lensed hat and best of all a dark grey Merr-Sonn Munitions Mark II medium repeating blaster cannon.
There is also the right arm of U-3PO as well, the remainder of which is with figures #38 - #41 and #43 in the current line.
A good trooper, a far superior model to the 1997 release and a must have for all those Echo base dioramas.

Hasbro continue their new Legacy Collection for 2009 with wave two consisting of figures from The Empire Strikes Back. Continuing the success of last year's build-a-droid each one in this wave comes with a component to build the silver protocol droid U-3PO.
The next figure in the line is #41: Princess Leia. This is Leia from the end of the film where she is on the medical frigate with Luke. Collectors will note that this is just the VOTC 2004 Princess Leia with a new head and slightly different sleeves.
She has head (rotational and vertical), shoulder (rotational and abductional), elbow (rotational and vertical), wrist (rotational), torso (rotational), hips (vertical), and knee (rotational and vertical) articulation which gives her a good 19 ranges of movement.
She comes equipped with a black BlasTech E-11 blaster rifle.
There is also the right leg of U-3PO as well, the remainder of which is with figures #38 - #40 and #42 - #43 in the current line.
A nice figure but if you have the VOTC figure you might give this one a miss. Really for completists only.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Ready my shuttle.", 30 Jun. 2009
Hasbro continue their new Legacy Collection for 2009 with wave two consisting of figures from The Empire Strikes Back. Continuing the success of last year's build-a-droid each one in this wave comes with a component to build the silver protocol droid U-3PO.
The next figure in the line is #40 Captain Lorth Needa. It's nice to see more of the Imperial Officers and figures from The Empire Strikes back have been a bit slim on the ground since the line restarted in 1995. This is also the first time Needa has been released in figure form.
He has head (rotational and vertical), shoulder (rotational and abductional), elbow (rotational and vertical), wrist (rotational), torso (rotational), hips (vertical), knee (rotational and vertical) and ankle (rotational and vertical) articulation which gives him a great 23 ranges of movement.
He comes equipped with a grey Imperial Officer's hat and a Black BlasTech E-11 blaster rifle.
There is also the left leg of U-3PO as well, the remainder of which is with figures #38 - #39 and #41 - #43 in the current line.
An excellent figure and a welcome addition to the Star Wars figure line.
