TIP - Of all the Lego sets we have bought so far, this is the only one that came with a really cool orange colored tool. This tool helps pry those tight Lego pieces apart that would otherwise chip your nails (specially the thin pieces with a flat top). We now keep this tool handy for all Lego sets we make. Highly recommended to saved this tool. Lego should include this with all their sets, at least the ones with more than say 300 pcs.
The Gungan Sub is a recreation of the vessel used to get from Boss Nash's underwater city back to Theed, the capital of Naboo, in Star Wars Episode 1 The Phantom Menace. This is the second version of this vessel, first being represented in the 1999 set 7161 - Gungan Sub.
As a pure model, this set is beautifully designed, using multi-layer building technics and a combination of stud-up and SNOT techniques. There are three cockpits, the largest of which fits three mini figures. The sub is an improved construction since the 1999 set, typical of lego remakes. The tail of the sub use intertwined whip pieces to create the rather organic appearing propulsion unit. This unit can also detaches and can be played with as a mini-sub, which is move-inaccurate but fun for kids to play with. (but come on... the engine of the sub detaches? How would that actually work).
The biggest attraction to this set is the set-unique Queen Amidala figure. While Padme Amidala is represented in other sets, this is the only set that has her in her royal regalia. This figure is, in the end, the true draw for collectors. The sub itself is cool, but its really about her. The Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan figures are cool but also in other sets. Jar Jar is Jar Jar.
The downside to this set is the cost. Originally selling for an MSRP of $70, this set did poorly in the primary market. At 15 cents per piece, it was one of the highest priced sets in 2012. It grossly undersold the 55 dollar Tie Fighter set which was released at the same time, had the same sized box, and a similar number of pieces. As of January 2015 this set is now retired and is only available from aftermarket resellers.Read more ›
