One of the LEGO Star Wars sets released this summer is the #9500 LEGO Star Wars Fury Class Interceptor, already available at some locations. You can read more about the Interceptor in the LEGO Star Wars section, but here is the box-art image as a reminder:
The ship itself is quite all-right with an opening cockpit, folding control panel, folding wings, flick missiles and opening rear hull with space for two minifigs. Here are some images from Brickipedia to show some of the details (click image for larger views on Brickipedia):
However what is really unique about this LEGO Star Wars set is the minifigures included; Darth Malgus and two Sith Troopers. According to many LEGO fans these are some of the most gorgeous Star Wars minifigures LEGO ever designed. Just take a look:
And here are some detailed pictures of both Darth Malgus, and the Sith Troopers (images by Flickr member ExoBrick):
Darth Malgus, in particular - with printing on both front and back of his torso, legs, and armor-piece – is a real beauty. Even the head-printing is nice, given the fact that Malgus is still an ugly Sith Lord!
And here is another interesting image from ExoBrick, where he uses various official and custom LEGO heads to match up with the Darth Malgus armor:
From top to bottom and left to right the heads used are: Bane (#6860 LEGO Super Heroes – The Batcave), Deadpool (#6866 LEGO Super Heroes – Wolverine’s Chopper), a custom BoneSaw head from eclipseGrafx, Cad Bane (#8128 LEGO Star Wars Cad Bane’s Speeder), custom Iron Man head by Christo, Nute Gunray (#9494 LEGO Star Wars – Anakin’s Jedi Interceptor), custom head with balaclava by eclipseGrafx, Darth Sidious/Emperor Palpatine (#10188 LEGO Star Wars – Death Star), and Imperial Pilot (#7915 LEGO Star Wars V-Wing Starfighter).
As you can see this LEGO Star Wars armor piece has a lot of usage and looks great with lots of different combos for evil/alien/space characters. Which one is your favorite? Share your thoughts below!
