No pictures of the box or anything here, because I couldn't bring myself to pay for this set on ebay! So, I ordered the parts via Bricklink for the Dropship and combined it with the AT-TE I received through an existing Brickmaster subscription.
Name: San Diego Comic Con 2009 Brickmaster Exclusive : Republic Dropship & AT-TE Mini
Theme: Star Wars Minis
Pieces: errr ?
Price: $50 (if you were lucky enough to "win" the chance to buy one!)
First up, all the parts laid out in a nice and orderly fashion ... how organised!
A couple of random parts in the build ...
And here's the final build Dropship :
And here's the Dropship carrying the AT-TE
So there you have it. I'm glad I spent the time getting the instructions and working out the parts list. After a few Bricklink orders, I had all the bits I needed and I was away. It's a pretty good model once built and looks good as a display model.
It even inspired me to make a mini AT-OT companion model to go with it, which you can see here
The Ratings :
Playability/Swooshability : 9/10 (pretty swooshable, but the "dismount" is a bit fiddly and sometimes leaves bits of the dropship behind)
Design : 8/10 (Quite an accurate depiction, although as I said, bits get left behind on "dismount")
Price : 2/10 (if you buy the actual set ... FAR too expensive) or 7/10 (if you just buy the parts like I did!)
Overall : 8/10 (A few tiny flaws, but pretty good overall)
