Star Wars Lego 8036 Separatist Shuttle Set

This Star Wars Lego set is the great 8036 Separatist Shuttle. And why is it great? A few reasons, it is available in August but my local store has them already, the price is really good for what you get, and there are five Lego minifigures; two of those are rare Lego minifigures not available in other Lego sets.

The doors for the Viceroy work well by sliding open, nice touch, you just twist the side knob and gears open the doors. The pilot area has an opening cockpit for the Droid Pilot and it is solid gray - that's because this Lego Shuttle is an automated ship and doesn't need a pilots window, so true to the shows I guess. The spacecraft is strong and wont fall apart easily like some Star Wars sets and sits down on folding legs. Again the set contains decals/stickers - I wish the Lego bricks themselves would be printed instead. The Lego stickers were mainly blue stripes.star wars lego collectables 8036 separatist shuttle passenger areastar wars lego collectables 8036 separatist shuttle back viewThere are the rare Lego minifigs: a Neimoidian called Viceroy Nute Gunray and Rodian from the planet Rodia called Senator Onaconda Farr, both great looking Lego characters - as well as two Battle Droids and one Pilot Droid minifig. The pilot has a blue body, older Lego Pilot droids had a painted chest didn't they, so this may be a minifigure worth collecting as well?star wars lego collectables 8036 separatist shuttle set with rare nute gunray, rare onaconda farr, rare pilot droid and battle droidsOverall this a Lego Star Wars set worth buying, the Separatist Shuttle is a good looker and three out of the five Lego minifigures are rare collectables. Buy it , it is a bargain. The set has 259 parts and an easy build for anyone, didn't take my son very long.

And just in case you want to look at the 8036 building instructions, here are the 8036 Separatist Shuttle building instructions from Lego.
