Another LEGO Star Wars Masterpiece!
on July 5, 2012
This set contains the Geonosian Cannon and four minifigures.
First,I'll talk about the minifigures. To describe them in one word, they are FANTASTIC! There are two Geonosian (one zombie and one warrior). The designs on these two (on the torso and legs) are quite detailed and simply amazing. Even the faces look very realistic. The only difference between these two is the color. AND these two come with WINGS!! The wings are made from plastic and fit nice and snug on the Geonosians. The wings look damn real! (Now I'm thinking of building a Geonosian army!!).
Then there's the Clone Commander Gree minifigure which is also cool-looking. Nice design on Gree. And last but not the least, is the Barriss Offee minifigure. (I thing this name was derived from "Barista" & "Coffee". ...Sorry, bad pun).Lovely minifig. I think this is the only set containing Barris Offee and I'm sure this will become a collectible one day. This is my first minifigure that contains a robe/cape. But the quality of the robe/cape is not that good. It feels like paper, rather than cloth. I feel LEGO should use better material while creating robes/capes for minifigures. Barris Offee also comes with a light saber. The light saber piece (both the handle and the glass piece are good).
Coming to the Cannon, I think it's another Winner from LEGO Star Wars. The design and the look and feel is simply awesome. And it's pretty stable and great to play with!
One thing I love about LEGO toys is their packaging. In this case, even Offee's cap was in small separate paper package. The headpieces of Geonosians were in a separate cover!
This set is a MUST for all LEGO Star Wars fan. I assembled it yesterday and still I've not had enough of it. I've just kept it next to the Geonosian Starfighter and I feel like a proud man!! ' Hope LEGO comes out with more Geonosian equipment!
