So while this set tends to run a little over the 10 cent average (typically around $25 for a 213 piece set), you get Jedi Luke (in the all black garb as is appropriate for the scene) and Boba Fett. The coolest part, however, is easily the Sarlacc. The pictures don't do it justice, it really is a very cool looking Lego construction. Of the people I showed my final build to, some commented "oh, cool, Luke" or "oh cool, Boba Fett", but literally everyone commented on how awesome the Sarlacc looks on display. The other minifigs (including Lando in disguise) and the skiff itslf are frosting on the cake. If you are buying the Jabba's Palace set or already have the Jabba's Sail Barge (very hard to find brand new now without dropping several hundred dollars), this purchase is practically mandatory, especially if you really want to display or re-enact a full Return of the Jedi Tatooine scene.
I am personally hoping they rerelease the Sail Barge and maybe release the Jabba's Palace musicians or a Rancor Pit to build onto the Palace!
Edit 3-5-2013: A few changes have taken place since I wrote this review.
- Rancor Pit has been released! (Yay!Read more ›
This is one of the more memorable scenes of the movie and this set is true to the film. Great construction of the vehicle and the sarlacc pitt is pretty wicked.
It has one of the best selections of minifigs as well! Boba Fett alone makes this set. Normally you would have to get a much pricier set to get him or pay a lot of $$ to buy him individually on ebay or whatnot.
Of the recently released wave of Star Wars LEGO sets, I think that this is one of the best, especially at the price. It's only $20 (at time of posting) and that is well worth it!
I don't have the Jabba's Palace LEGO set, but it would pair great with this set. Enjoy!
I like it because the mini-figures are really well done. Boba Fett is great and Lando and his mask are really detailed and well thought out. My son loves putting the mini-figures in the Sarlacc Pit and opening in closing the mouth. This is good hand-eye coordination for him and even this simple task is really fun for him.
I paid $24.99 for the set and would probably think twice about paying $39.99. I was told these sets will be around for awhile so wait for the price to go down.
ok. This skiff has a small box in the center. Lift the top off and you will find two blaster pistols. There is one for the pirate and one for Boba. Plus there is a black light saber hilt. Also, Luke has a green light saber.
The sarlaac actually swallows a minifig (Boba Fett, of course!). (See photos!)
R2-D2 is not included.
The plank swings out from underneath the skiff. There is a space for a minifig's feet to stand there. On the opposite side, the skiff has a missile.
Lando Calrissian is also included.
That's it. It doesn't take very long to make. Look up our photos in customer images. The best part is the sarlaac's mouth opens and closes.
You can act out the whole scene!
1) There are four figures including Boba Fett and Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight.
2) The Sarlacc is able to fit an entire minifigure.
3) Stop Motion movie makers, this set is for you. You are able to recreate the Desert Skiff scene from Return of the Jedi.
4) This set has many pieces
5) It was a big improvement to the Desert Skiff made in 2000.
The only downside is that the model falls apart easily. This is highly reccomended.
