About this deal

The Lego Star Wars ARC-170 Starfighter kit has unique minifigures, exceptional detail, neat functionality (opening and closing winglets/S-foils) and was a blast to assemble. I can deal with it since the look is hard to nail at System scale (on that note, I would love to see a UCS ARC-170… You listening LEGO? The bracketed stripe along the fuselage looks great and the SNOTed slopes round off the nose cleanly, unlike the older model that used sideways plates and failed miserably. The one right above it needs that room to avoid trapping the pilot if his backseat driver hops out first so it can’t be helped. This set comes with a whole range of printed parts, some of which are unique to this set only such as the sloped printed windows, printed computer with tri-fighter, printed wedge, printed technic disc with Arc-170 engine pattern and printed tile 2 x 2 with DkGreen Half-Ellipse Pattern.

As we highly anticipate the new ARC-170 coming out next year, here's a look at the original version from 2005, the year EPIII came out. LEGO, the LEGO logo, the Minifigure and the brick and knob configurations are trademarks and/or copyrights of the LEGO Group of companies which does not sponsor, authorize or endorse this site.First let me say that I never picked up the first version of the ARC-170, despite the fact that I like the ship. I know that sets across the board have gone up but I still judge sets against the golder rule (10 cents per brick) so despite the cool figures and cool ship I'm simply . Turn the gear on the back to open and close the S-foil attack wings, then push it to launch auto-firing flick missiles.

Great product but the item was missing the wheel, one of the biggest piece in the set and it looked like it was previously opened. For the 2 gunners, they can easily enter and leave their gunnery stations as both their windows can open upward and the side windows can open sideways.

Et cerise sur le gateau, le prix, plutot raisonable qui donne envie de se lancer dans la collection. The LEGO 8088 Arc-170 is a remodeled and updated version of the original starfighter from set 7259 (now discontinued).

The Aggressive ReConnaissance-170 starfighter, also known as the ARC-170 starfighter, was a heavy starfighter/bomber that saw widespread use by the Republic Navy in the later days of the Clone Wars. My son definitely needed help with the wings as the tri-wing assembly does require some dexterity and attention to detail. OK, so about the rear gun getting in the way: you know that little gear for the S-Foils and missiles?

Very nice review, I never bought this because it didn't look that appealing, but your review makes me wish I did get it. Although the wings are long they do not fall off easily, making it a terrific toy to fly around the room.
