Staff Review:

Retro review time! While doing the review for 75136 Droid Escape Pod, I ran across a copy of 9490 Droid Escape and decided to review this one as well. I actually wrote this review first so I can get a better feel of how much better the newer set is. While the newer one kicks ass, this one ain't too shabby either. 9490 Droid Escape is 137 pieces for a retail price of $19.99, falling way, way below the 10 cent per piece threshold. But that's honestly the worst thing about this set. For that price you do get an oddly shaped escape pod, 4 nice minifigs, and quite possibly the world's smallest speeder bike. (more…)(read more)

    Pros: You get 4 little Boba and Jango Fett look alikes... now you can have a Jedi hunt!
    Cons: Bike is more complex... but that was kind of expected
    Comments: I hope they make a few more battle packs like this with diffrent color Mandos

    I recently did a review/alternate build on this set on another forum.

    Pros: Loved that TLG finally put out some Mandos. Excellent helmet pieces and guns.

    Cons: Speederbike was sadly simple but then it does look like the bike that appears in the Series. Also only one color of Mando. :(

    Final Comments: Speeder bike and turret can be easily combined into heavy speederbike. Making this set a fun and easy build.
