Today I would like to show you one of the most interesting LEGO Star Wars sets that came out this summer; the. The Tank Droid wasn’t in the final cut of Star Wars Episode II, but it was originally supposed to be in the movie, which is interesting. So let’s take a closer look! 🙂
Here is the official description: Build the great Battle of Geonosis where the Separatist forces are advancing on the Jedi Knights and their clone army with the LEGO Star Wars Corporate Alliance Tank Droid! Help the Clone Troopers to repel the Droid’s crushing track-tire and 2 flick-missiles! Then fend off the Battle Droid and infamous bounty hunter Jango Fett.

- Features large track-tire and 2 flick-missiles

- Fire the flick-missiles!

- Measures over 4″ (11cm) high, 7″ (18cm) long and 3″ (9cm) wide
The LEGO Star Wars Tank Droid itself is made up of around 200 elements (excluding the treads), and is 26 studs long. It is a fairly easy build. The guns have flick-missiles, which are pretty standard on LEGO sets and always fun. On the front pontoon-like extensions there is room to place battle-droids – just like in the movie. The “eyes” can turn 360 degrees so they can look both forward and backward.
There are three minifigures included with the LEGO Star Wars Corporate Alliance Tank Droid. Jango Fett is of course the coolest character, and his minifig version doesn’t disappoint. He comes with the new Mandalorian helmet, but in flat-silver, instead of dark-gray. His jet-pack is also flat-silver. And I also like the blaster holster printing on his legs. Probably one of my most favorite details. The Clone Trooper minifigure is the same as in the other 2013 LEGO Star Wars sets, but he is still pretty cool. I like the helmet details, especially the little holes on the sides to attach antennas, visors, etc. The Battle-Droid is the same as we always get, but since this one is from Geonosis, it is dark-orange instead of tan. It also comes with a plate that is attached to his back as a backpack sort of thing.
Overall this is a really nice LEGO Star Wars set, and I would rate it six out of five stars. Why? Because the it is well designed, and is also really sturdy. I dropped mine from 17 inches and not one part fell off. The minifigures are also great, and the value is just unbeatable! You get 271 pieces for $19.99. That’s only 7 cents/piece, well below the 10 cents/piece golden ratio, considered the standard by LEGO fans. The LEGO Star Wars Corporate Alliance Battle Droid is available at the, along with the other LEGO Star Wars summer sets. Check them out here:
