- I really loved building this set a lot. It came with Darth Maul, Qui-gon, and Young Obi-won, which is great if you want to have a dark vs light side theme. Now I have a Sith leading my imperials and 2 jedi leading my rebels. The opening/closing gate was a fun feature to build in. There is a lot of details and room to build off of this set and make it even bigger or turn it into something else. Would highly recommend to all LEGO enthusiasts.
- This is a good set! It’s definitely a play set though rather than a display one. That can be seen as a good thing or a bad thing depending on who you talk to. In my opinion, I’m fine with it being more for play since the scene in the movie was very action packed with a lot of things they could make into play features, which they did. The features include the blast shields and catapult function which launches Obi-Wan out of the pit. The pit of course doesn’t launch him perfectly, but it’s still fun. And the laser shields open forwards which can make it a little cramped, but it’s a small complaint which doesn’t matter too much. I love that we get all 3 minifigs from the scene for a cheap price! Which is another reason I approve of it being a play set rather than a display one, if they made a big model out of it, it would have been way more expensive and then we couldn’t get the figs for a cheaper price. The double sided faces only add to the set, I love Qui-Gon’s. Maul’s smile is ok, he smiles in like only one of the scenes, I wish he had a serious expression like the older figs of him. I wish Lego would stop giving Obi-Wan orange hair though, I can understand giving him that hair for episode 2 and 3, since it matches better, but in episode 1 his hair was definitely just brown. A good choice for kids and adults, buy this set!
- It’s shocking to think that this lightsaber battle has never been attempted in Lego before, even though it introduced audiences to a brand new kind of lightsaber. These small location sets are good value for money and offer a quick, easy build that’s great for display or play. It’s an interesting build with some interesting techniques used to create the shape. The play features are fun – the ‘laser’ gate swings open and shut (like it turns on and off in the film) and Obi Wan can ‘leap’ out of the shaft when you hit the catapult lever. The minifigures are possibly the best part of this set. Darth Maul is a standout with superb printing on his robes and face. Fans will be pleased to know that his head piece has 9 horns just as he has in the film. Qui-Gon Jinn is movie accurate and again has detailed printing. Obi Wan Kenobi isn’t much different from previous versions but is good minifigure. This is a great set for either re-enacting the scenes from The Phantom Menace or as a Prequels display piece. Either way locations are rare in Lego form and this set captures it really well.
- This is a good set for starwars fans i especially like these sets that depict a scene like the carbonite chamber. The figurse are awsome and the main draw to the set the main build looks good but cud be better
- As a parent (and massive LEGO fan who tends to buy sets for myself…and then feel guilty and buy one for my son too) I will pass judgement as an Adult collector and as a parent. As a collector, this is an incredibly beautiful little set. Whilst it does still feel slightly un-finished this set is NOT designed for the AFOL as such and in that sense I appreciate its construction. It serves its purpose in a beautiful way; the Plasma Power Plant, the Laser Walls, the Walkway, the Pit and of course the characters. As an AFOL this set really does provide (in terms of the minifigures) and is great for a collector. For the kids, this set is absolutely fabulous. It provides in stacks and is probably one of the best ‘playset’ sets out there right now. Compare this to the Desert Skiff and this one really comes into its own. The Desert Skiff is good BUT it falls short as a ‘complete’ playset as it does not feel like a complete scene. Obviously the Duel on Naboo has the advantage of the fact that it only has the three characters; but this is what makes this one so great for kids. As an Adult, I would recommend this set to collectors; it’s a fun build, superb minifigures, and perhaps a good excuse to feel a kid again, to feel like its 1999… As a parent, this set is one of the best (if not THE best) out there for kids at the moment. A complete scene (of a brilliant scene!!) and offers them a decent build, plus a compact playset. Value: This set is brilliant value! How would I compare this set? Well to begin with I’d compare it to the Carbon Freezing Chamber of last year…HOWEVER I would say this one is much better as (owing to the source material) it has a far more complete feel to it…in terms of play value and characters. POSITIVES: Line up of Characters, play value, source material, fun little build, VALUE! Negatives: One more wall section would have mitigated EVERYTHING. The lack of a second wall leaves it somewhat lacking, BUT the positives vastly outweigh the negatives here. Verdict: BUY THIS!
- Bought this more for Darth Maul than the lego set and to be honest I wasn’t overly impressed with the set, it was surprisingly basic and didn’t seem to represent the scene from Star Wars that it was based on. That said, the minifigures more than make up for the basic set and I was impressed with the design of Maul!
