Extend the retractable stabilizer leg, open the roof and side doors to access the cockpit and controls, and elevate, rotate or release the top-mounted heavy blaster cannon. Set includes 2 clone shocktroopers. AT-AP is over 8 inches (20cm) tall and over 6 inches (15cm) wide.

Star Wars characters have a wide variation in the head type, size and shape. Lego decided to make special molds for the heads which are true to these characters. Unique and completely original molds were created for these figures. Darth Vader is a good example of this special treatment. Light sabers were also added to the line since it would not be complete without these very well known weapons.

All of the well known star ships and assorted other vehicles are included in the series. The Millennium Falcon is likely the most popular vehicle. The X-wing fighter, the Imperial AT-ST, speeders, AT-AP Walker and TIE fighters were all included. A series of location sets from several of the movies is also included to accompany the vehicles that were in the movie.

Lego has produced a huge variety of Star Wars paraphernalia. Their Technic line includes several of these items. The Technics line has more complex parts which are capable of movement and are more realistic than the well known Lego figures.

The Ultimate collector series has large and very complex designs in Star Wars material. The Millenium Falcon in this series for instance has over 5000 pieces and is the biggest Lego set ever produced.

This series of video games is definitely the best selling Lego product ever made. These video games were hugely popular and were a hit with both Star Wars devotees and video gamers. The first of the video games was based on the prequel trilogy, and the second game was based on the original trilogy. The two games were later packaged and sold together as one complete Star wars edition.

Lego Star Wars Toys, figures and other items are extremely popular with both adults and children. This is one of the really great success stories in toy production history.

Lego Anakin's Jedi Starfighter Review

Anakin Skywalker is one of the most skilled and daring fighter pilots in the Republic. His amazing piloting abilities make him a powerful ally and a formidable enemy Anakin and his former master Obi-Wan Kenobi battle deadly droid fighters while on a dangerous mission to rescue Chancellor Palpatine, who has been kidnapped by Separatist forces.

Anakin's Jedi Starfighter in my opinion is one of the better Star Wars vehicles made to date. It does not utilize the cheap flimsy toxic free plastic as some of the previous vehicles (AT-ST or Jawa Sandcrawler).

The sculpting for this new vehicle in the Star Wars Universe is outstanding. It is somewhat suppose to cross the Original Trilogy with the New Prequel Trilogy in terms that this ship has crossover design features such as straight lines, the Tie Fighter cockpit window, Snowspeeder cannons, and more while still retaining the technology of today with the new Trilogy in retaining that old (Episode II) Jedi Starfighter lines. One feature that I like is that R2-D2 is not only represented as a plug but he is removable so you can insert in a real R2-D2 action figure. The pop open wings are a nice feature, which remind me of the wings on Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator. That with the firing missiles and landing gear really makes this ship a great toy.

The paint detailing of this ship is very good. Not only does it have that new feeling to it, it has the painting style that this ship has seen some use in battle. It has that used in look and feeling that George Lucas wanted with the Original Trilogy. Lego Toys

7669 Anakin's Jedi Starfighter

During the Battle over Coruscant which took place at the beginning of the action thriller "Star Wars III - the Revenge of the Sith", Lego Anakin Jedi Starfighter and his teacher Obi-Wan Kenobi were ordered to free Grand Chancellor Palpatine from the hands of the enemy Confederate Army. Anakin Skywalker sets out accompanied by his resourceful robot R2-D2 with the small Eta-2 Jedi Starfighter. The Eta-2 Jedi Starfighter is the most advanced fighter plane ever made. Anakin's state-of-the-art fighter has yellow markings, reminiscent of his podracer that freed him from slavery on Tattoine. Yellow markings were also carried by the Airspeeder with which he hunted the bounty-hunter Zam Wessel through the streets of Coruscant. Anakin is reputed to be the "best pilot in the galaxy" and hijavascript:void(0)s manoeuvres take the Starfighter right to the limits of its capabilities. These dare-devil manoeuvres are extremely successful, but not always.
