Review: 75007 Republic Attack Ship and Coruscant
This one, 75007 Republic Attack Ship and Coruscant, like all Planet sets consists of a Planet, a spacecraft, a minifig and a display stand.
According to Wookiepedia...
Coruscant was, during most of galactic history, the most politically important world in the galaxy. Its hyperspace coordinates were (0,0,0) which effectively made it the centre of the galaxy.
The entire surface of Coruscant was covered by sprawling kilometers-high ecumenopolis (single worldwide city), and boasted a population of over a hundred billion to several trillion, depending on the era.
Anyway, on with the review...
Box and contents
If you're familiar with other Planet sets you'll find no surprises here.
This is a new design of Clone Trooper for 2013 which BrickLink designates sw442 and claims is an episode 2 variant. However, it has to be said he's pretty boring. I think the main differences between it and earlier episode 2 Clone Troopers (e.g. this one) are the facial expression and a darker torso print.
The Republic Attack Ship looks great until you compare it with what I believe it's supposed to resemble. The page on Wookiepedia for the Acclamator I-class assault ship shows something with much wider wings, more like a Vulcan.
Nevertheless, it's a well-made 'swooshable' model.
The completed model
Not much to say about it really...
This is another good addition to the Planets series, although the minifig is a bit boring, and also appears in 75000 Clone Troopers vs. Droidekas. The ship is well made and despite not looking quite like the prototype is still an excellent model.
Not an essential purchase given the minifig is not unique and the ship not iconic, but one that you'll be pleased with if you do buy it.
