Outside Dexter’s Diner: The Video Game Minikits – Solar Sailor

Count Dooku’s Punworcca 116-class interstellar sloop was just one type of solar sailer used during the Clone Wars. These ships were designed to capture stray space energies and convert them into its power source. LEGO released a System scale version with set 7752 Count Dooku’s Solar Sailer and a micro-scale version in the 2013 Advent Calendar.

Mini Review

While the design is pretty simple, the likeness of this minikit to the actual ship is immediately evident. Quickly looking someone may mistake it for a Geonosian Fighter, but the sail on the front would give it away to more knowledgeable fans. The body of the ship is comprised of various sized plates which makes it quite narrow and is the only downside to the build. A small amount of creative license had to be used in order to build this model. The fins on the front of the ship should be light bluish gray, but the part does not exist in this color so old light gray was used instead. Also the transparent colors are difficult to distinguish in the game, but it appears that the front dish should be trans black which has not been created. Therefore, a trans clear dish was used in its place. With these substitutions the minikit can be completed at a reasonable price.
