I loathed those light-up lightsaber minifigures! What a gimmick. This set rectified that error and gave us the first, pure Mace Windu figure, not to mention an additional clone trooper! However, something about the design still turned me off from buying it, and my clone trooper fix was addressed in 2007 with the first battle packs. I'm glad I waited. The 2010 Turbo Tank (or A4/A6 Juggernaut tank, seen in Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One) was far superior, even with those atrocious animated "The Clone Wars" faces for the minifigures. This one has the classic space big wheels, but not much else going for it. Interestingly enough, I saw a thread on r/lego today where Lego normies were heaping way more praise on this set than it deserved.

I remember seeing this set a bunch in old LEGO media (books and such) when I was younger, and I must say it's a very cool set for the time it was made. I only own 75151 from 2016, but I appreciate 7261 for being one of the first Turbo Tank sets; it's definitely a classic!

This was one of my favorite Star Wars set growing up. Fun fact: this version includes one more Clone Trooper than the other one with the light-up lightsaber. For the longest time, brickset didn't have this version in the database, and that missing clone in my minifig database irked me to no end.

Those light up figures were such a bad idea!

I have three of those light up figs with the sabers. Not good when the battery runs out, eh?

I have two of the 2005 versions. I like the set and specially the minifigures.

The light-up minifigures were an interesting, and no doubt expensive, experiment. The fact sets such as this were re-released without them a year later suggests they were a complete failure.

The way this set turned with the technic shock absorber system was great. Later versions looked a little sharper than this model but were slimmed down and smaller. A fun build for sure.

I remember seeing the first images of this set and being amazed that they were going to have Juggernauts in Episode III... I'd seen them in EU materials before but never expected them to be on film. Of course, it turns out they barely were.

One of my favourite Lego sets of all time, still assembled and on display after 12 years...

I hate the wheels, but like the overall design.

I have the light up version and had I known another one would come out with a third minifigure I wouldn't have asked that one as a gift.

I've got the 2010 version but actually like this one better, it just looks sturdier. I like the Speeder Bike better than the mini Scout Walker in 8098, and always wanted that exclusive Scout Trooper. Not sure why they included what looks like a Hoth Rebel Base turret though lol. As for the light-up lightsabers, I've only got one - Luminara Unduli, and she's one of my favorites. It was a cool concept and great execution, heck she's 13 years old and still works well!

I've got the light-up version. Doesn't really bug me honestly, and we did get more Mace Windu's later and more accurate versions, too. What I will say is that the color of the blade that came with the light-up one is a far more accurate color in my opinion. It's a lighter purple than what we've been getting, and I'd say it's far superior.

Those light up Minifigures where so wierd. It was a neat idea, but the inability to remove the characters parts really limited playability. Love the Turbo Tank itself though, and am glad it got this rerelease.

The amount of discussion about light-up figs when this set made a point of not having one strikes me as ironic.

Too bad Mace lost his cape in this version.
