As Obi-Wan Kenobi sets out on his Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor – captured by 75333 Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Jedi Starfighter – towards the planet of Kamino, he is accompanied by his astromech droid R4-P17. Shortly after arrival he is greeted by Taun We.
The set comes with three minifigures all of which are new designs including the star of the show – Taun We!
Obi-Wan Kenobi is a Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council and would be a major player throughout The Clone Wars.
Having the third most variants of any LEGO Star Wars character, fans have had ample opportunity to acquire Obi-Wan minifigures across his lifespan. Even still there are some gaps in his appearances.
This version comes with unique torso and leg printing which is the first young version to feature his brown robes as opposed to using a cape. The rest of his tan outfit can be seen on the center of the torso and is carried down onto the legs. He comes with a new dual-sided head with his headset comlink printed on one side and an inquisitive face on the other. He has the same mid-length hairpiece as a couple of prior versions. Although the set also includes his hood, this is not part of the official assembly.
This female R4-series astromech droid served Obi-Wan Kenobi throughout much of The Clone Wars before meeting her demise at the blades of a Buzz Droid.
We have received two prior versions of R4-P17 with the last one released in 2017 as part of 75191 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive.
Compared to the prior version, it takes a critical eye to see the differences. There are a few changes to the body with the most notable being an increase from 5 to 6 red horizontal bars. The two gray squares at the bottom have also been updated slightly. The dome is where the changes are a bit more noticeable but even then without having them side-by-side you might miss it. The silver-printed bars on the front have been elongated slightly. The printing on the reverse of the dome has also been reproportioned.
Serving as an administrative aide on Kamino, Taun We helped guide Obi-Wan Kenobi around the cloning facility as he first witnessed the Clone Troopers.
A minifigure that has been on fans’ wanted lists since being included in LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game has finally been realized.
Due to Kaminoans’ height and unique appearance, the minifigure required a new modified head element. This piece captures her long neck and unique head shape. The printing is quite nice on the face and provides a good likeness to the actual character. She uses the skirt element which comes with unique printing as does the torso to capture her blue and white costume.
Taun We on her own sells this set. To get two other unique versions of Obi-Wan and R4-P17 makes it an easy buy. Is this a must-have for you, or will you be giving it a pass?
