About this deal

It looks like what it's supposed to be, but what I don't like is when they previously released a set and they didn't improve on it by much. Built with the latest in Republic technology, this Clone Wars fighter-bomber carries a crew of clone pilots and Jedi Master Kit Fisto into battle anywhere the enemy strikes. Star Wars Episode III ARC-170 Starfighter set 8088 was released on December 30, 2009, retailing for ₩72,972, it has since been retired. Et cerise sur le gateau, le prix, plutot raisonable qui donne envie de se lancer dans la collection. Manning the rear gun is another generic Clone Pilot who clearly isn’t cool enough to be named, unlike Captain Jag.

The over/under connection is a fun feature but it can sort of get in the way… I’ll get back to that in a minute. Mon neveu de 7 ans que j'initie au légo est ravi de ce modèle qu'il arrive à monter lui-même et qui est facile à manipuler pour mettre en scène ces aventures dans l'espace. My son definitely needed help with the wings as the tri-wing assembly does require some dexterity and attention to detail. From the rear there is the tail laser weapon mounted on top of a turntable to shoot incoming tri-fighter.

Great product but the item was missing the wheel, one of the biggest piece in the set and it looked like it was previously opened.

Maybe if the canopies were printed I wouldn’t complain so much (honestly, stickers on transparent elements and stickers on round elements are both terrible ideas – but at the same time?Turn your starfighter into a display piece and hold it in a dynamic position with our custom display stand.

Behind the pilot is the hole where you insert the blue transparent 1x1 circular bricks into the bomb bay.

The Arc-170 Starfighter is perfected for reconnaissance missions and raids against the separatist navy. I had no idea who that was to be honest, but with a name like Captain Jag I think it’s safe to assume he has the situation under control. In the core of the Arc-170 is an exceptionally clever LEGO brick engine, composed of 2 interior gears; turning it lowers/raises the wings, reminiscent of the X-Wing.

The there are 3 cockpits whereby the pilots sits infront and the 2 gunners sit in the compartment at the rear. This current model has a much longer wingspan and is overall bigger, with smaller pieces resulting in a more intricate design and tighter fit. Of the more recent Star Wars sets, this is the only one to incorporate Technic pieces on this scale.

Other parts include gears, the clear technic gearbox, elastic bands and technic ball joint for the S-foils. Also, that gear is set up to slide back and forth, because hiding on the underside is everyone’s favorite play feature: flick fire missiles. The reason I was using the starbucks plastic cup was because it was the only clear and stable holder for the fighter to be displayed for the photoshoot.Defend the Republic above Coruscant with the advanced LEGO® Star Wars ARC-170 Starfighter microfighter. The wings themselves suffer from the same droop issues as almost every other plate-wing starfigter, but considering the huge cannons on the tips and the big hole near the middle I expected much worse. First let me say that I never picked up the first version of the ARC-170, despite the fact that I like the ship.
