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: Size, it's huge if you are used to system scale sets.

    Cons: Nothing unless you were expecting something to scale with other sets.

    Comments: The amount of detail on the truck is amazing and the mechanism for dumping the container is simple but realistic and works very well. The minifigs have long disappeared into my general population but the truck still holds a spot on the shelf. It's a great looking set.

    Pros: Appearance, functions, and playability are all great

    Cons: Sick of stic-- wait, this set only has printed parts! Nevermind. . .

    Comments: This is a great set, even for $50. The build doesn't have even a hint of monotony, 3/4 figs are exclusive, the finished model looks awesome, play features are all excellent. The way the liftarms automatically open the top hatch is especially nifty. Plus, it makes a great parts pack full of hinges, tiles, and all that dark green.
