SDCC mini Sith Infiltrator

Posted by ,

SDCC Sith InfiltratorToday I am reviewing a set that I don't own, that I never will and that you won't be able to buy without remortgaging your house.

You may recall that last week I encouraged you to download the instructions for the SDCC mini Sith Infiltrator and build it yourself.

Being a SW mini fan, I did just that. I had to order a few of the new brackets and a couple of other parts from BrickLink to be able to do so.

 

SDCC Sith InfiltratorIt's not a bad looking model but unlike the other minis which are built to some microscale, this one is something of a hybrid: it's microscale but it has room for a Darth Maul minifig to stand on the back!

The best way I can think of to describe it is this: I'm sure you've seen 'sit on' spaceships outside supermarkets or in shopping malls for kids to ride on once you've fed it with a few coins. This is a model of one of those: A miniature version of the Infiltrator for Darth Maul to play on :-)

Consequently, in my opinion, it's a bit daft. It probably wouldn't take much to convert the back into something more realistic, though.

So, if you haven't already gathered the parts together, I wouldn't bother, and I certainly wouldn't recommend paying the $100 being asked for it at BrickLink at the moment...

Actually, having thought about it more, I guess it's no worse than, say, 10188 Death Star which is also a less-than-minifig-scale set populated by minifigs.

Thanks for the review Huw. This is a nifty model, I like the concept of a minifig riding it, but I can't believe this thing cost $40 at Comic-Con!

Nice, however, if memory serves correct, this is a model of Darth Mauls ship in a racing game....... I swear, im not making this up.

Not a bad model, but I think the tin it comes in looks more appealing personally.

The set is a good value.... compared to the SDCC/NYCC Super Heroes Minifigs.
