This set is definitely not my favorite but is is still cool and I can play with it for a little bit. I like the handle that can act as a display stand. The 20 years Luke figure is cool and I like how it can connect to other ones. (Like Vader) The main thing I don’t like is the looks of the engines. When I was building it I loved the engines but then the next day they were not my favorite. It’s mainly the big yellow flaps in the front. The cables get scraped from the pieces that you slide on but it is not super noticeable. This set is still cool and if you are a podracer or episode 1 fan then I recommend this.
The pod racer was the first Star Wars LEGO set that I had ever had, so when this one came out I knew I had to have it. It was a fun little build and the details are so much better than the original. The minifigures have so much more detail than the originals, and I love the 20th anniversary minifigure that was included. I would definitely recommend adding this to any Star Wars collection you may have.
This is a good set for the 20th anniversary line of sets. I feel it fills the early 2000s when there were quite a few podracer sets for sale. This set is definitely not good for play, because there are no other podracers currently available. It also come with a stand that can be used for swooshing and for display. I have two gripes with this set: Padme has the same face that was used for Jyn Erso and Black Widow and other characters. I also would have greatly enjoyed an updated Pit Droid build with the set, just like in the original. I wouldn't recommend buying this for a kid who likes to play with LEGO, or if you, or the person the set is for doesn't have any other podracers. Would recommend buying it if you want a small display piece on a desk or shelf, or if you are looking to expand a podracer collection. The 20th anniversary Luke Skywalker minifigure is cool as well.
I received this set as a birthday gift from my friend and I fell in love with it. As my third LEGO Star Wars set I might have had lower expectations than more acquired builders, but this set is awesome! I love the little details on the engines and the over-all sleekness of the podracer is super accurate to The Phantom Menace. The minifigures are great (Though Padme could have had larger legs) and the collectable Luke looks amazing! My only gripe with this set was a slight lack of play features but it was still an outstanding set. A personal but minor problem was a single missing piece.
Overall a Great Job on a Great Set Lego!!!
