Today, I would like to continue reviewing the 2013 LEGO Star Wars Episode II line with the. (You can find my previous reviews at the end of this post.) So let’s check out this very interesting looking set and awesome minifigs! 🙂
First, let’s start with the official description: Take on the Homing Spider Droid in the Battle of Geonosis! As the Battle of Geonosis rages on, Jedi Master Stass Allie and a Clone Trooper spot a deadly LEGO Star Wars Homing Spider Droid in the distance. Overpower the droid before it attacks with its articulated legs, rotating head, elevating lower gun and top-mounted flick missile! Then, take on 2 Super Battle Droids!
- Includes 4 minifigures with weapons: Stass Allie, Clone Trooper and 2 Super Battle Droids
- Features articulated legs, rotating head, elevating lower gun and top-mounted flick-missile
- Weapons include a lightsaber and a blaster rifle
- Move the legs, rotate the head and fire the flick missile!
- Use Stass Allie’s Jedi powers to stop the attack!
- Recreate awesome battle scenes from Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones
- Build an even bigger Battle of Geonosis with #75015 LEGO Star Wars Corporate Alliance Droid, #75019 LEGO Star Wars AT-TE and #75021 LEGO Star Wars Republic Gunship!
- Measures over 7″ (20cm) high, 10″ (26cm) long and 7″ (19cm) wide
The LEGO Star Wars Homing Spider Droid is actually quite large; about 16 studs long and 16 bricks high. It will stand up by itself, and you can shift its legs into lots of different positions. The top of the “head” can turn 360 degrees. The gun on top is actually a flick-missile, and is pretty easy to shoot. The gun at the bottom can move up and down.
Besides the Homing Spider Droid, this set also includes a Dwarf Spider Droid, which is about 8×8 studs. Each of its legs has three articulation joints, so it is very poseable. The eyes can swivel up and down, and so can the gun. Overall, the Dwarf Spider Droid is pretty fun to build, and when it’s done looks quite adorable.
There are four minifigures included with the LEGO Star Wars Homing Spider Droid set. Stass Allie is unique to this set, and in fact this is the first time LEGO released this awesome Jedi. Her torso is detailed both on the front and the back with Jedi robe printing and a utility-belt. Her legs are also printed. Her face is really nicely detailed, and she comes with a very unique Tholoth headdress. The Clone Trooper minifigure is the same as in the other 2013 LEGO Star Wars sets, but he is still pretty cool. The helmet comes with holes on the sides to attach antennas and visors that come with the set. There are also two Super Battle Droids included; the same as in other LEGO Star Wars sets. The arms of the Super Battle Droids can move up and down, and the legs can bend forward but not backwards. I think the pearl-dark-gray color looks great, so is the detailing.
Overall I would say that the LEGO Star Wars Homing Spider Droid is a fun set for both teen and adult collectors who are into Star Wars, and also younger kids who would appreciate the playability of the set. I would give it 4.5 out of 5 stars, because I would have liked one Super Battle Droid and one regular Battle Droid, but that’s pretty much the only con I can think of. The set is $29.99, and includes 295 pieces – which comes to the standard 10 cents/piece for LEGO Star Wars sets. The LEGO Star Wars Homing Spider Droid is available at the, along with the other LEGO Star Wars summer sets. Check them out here:
