About this deal

It's pretty cool that all six of the figures are either a jedi or a sith, and it's also pretty rare to get this many lightsabers in one set. The front however is highly detailed with a brown Jedi robe, a dark grey under-shirt and a dark grey belt.

He is similar to the figure included in set 9494, Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor, but does have one or two differences.He also comes with two lightning pieces which represent his Sith lightning, I find these superb personally and although they have been included in sets before, such as set 10188, Death Star, they are a lovely inclusion. Mace Windu is a real favourite of mine and I still believe that Lego has yet to produce a really definitive version of this character; however, the figure is still very nice, albeit similar to previous incarnations. The hips are printed with some more of his creased Jedi robes and the legs have the black robes hanging down his front which is created simply by printing a black rectangle on each leg which looks fantastic I think. As of today, 7261 Clone Turbo Tank is the most valuable Episode III set with an estimated new/factory sealed value of ₩1,115,050.

I love this torso personally, and think it could be very useful for any custom Jedi you might wish to make. Though this reveiw may seem overly detailed, I believe that this is what makes CapnRex such a great reveiwer.His torso is printed with a dark red shirt featuring a belt and on top of that is a dark grey cross pattern which is just like what is seen on this character in the film. EGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure, and the Brick and Knob configurations are trademarks of the LEGO Group of Companies.

The head piece is printed with two alternative faces, one of which is simple with a slight smile (an odd choice in my opinion as he did not do any smiling in this scene), some black eyebrows, and several wrinkles and lines on his face, as well as his many scars which are very accurate to the film. To those who are complaining about there being to much text, come on, its not exactly War and Peace (! The torso and hair is the same as the Anakin from his Jedi Interceptor that came out back in January, but the head is the new part. This looks quite good, but is not accurate at all and I would like to have seen a chrome gold at least, as the piece is in fact cast in pearl gold, making it a little less special. More Minifigures are nice, especially Palpatine, Saesee Tiin and the brand new Agen Kolar in my opinion.As you can see here, there's a good amount of open space where you can have the minfigures duel each other. There are a few images of the scene in the film being recreated in Lego and a blueprint style shot of the Jedi Airspeeder from numerous aspects. If you have a minifigure, like Palpatine, standing on part of the brick in the office, and you press down the brick, it will catapult him. His belt however differs very slightly from the Clone Wars version with a silver buckle in the centre and two smaller brown buckles on either side of that.
