OG-9 Homing Spider Droid: The build itself is not very difficult; it's just wobbly, including once it's completed. The spider droid has very posable legs, as well as a rotating head with a seat on the back for a droid (this is the most inaccurate part). It also includes a rapid-fire stud shooter. I am usually not a fan of the stud shooter cannons and minifig blasters, but the cannon does add an extra layer of playability. The biggest con: the Homing Spider Droid is difficult to pose properly for display, due to the legs moving around where I don't want them. However, that's just me being nitpicky, and it's pretty unavoidable in a kit like this. Note: the upper and lower laser cannons (for air and ground support respectively) are not rotatable in this set, a little of a bummer. DSD1 Dwarf Spider Droid: Very accurate build and a nice addition to the kit. The droid includes a transparent block on its underside in order to keep it upright and off the ground. My one gripe is the inclusion of the stud shooter. I give it points for playability, but it certainly detracts from the accuracy of the model itself (which is kinda bleh from a collector's point of view). Characters: As this model is featured in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, the battle droid characters are pretty much necessary, and Yoda and the 51st Elite Corp are the coolest characters present in the films at the time. This is a nice cheap set to pick up a film-based Yoda minifigure, as well as a sick-looking Phase II clone. The addition of a Wookie warrior would have been amazing, but I believe a Wookie was present in another set recently. Overall: I'm extremely glad LEGO has switched to focusing on Episodes II and III when making Clone Wars models. This results in movie-accurate models and characters rather than Clone Wars show-accurate models (with cartoon character faces and what-not). The price-per-piece is low in this set (esp. if you can pick it up on sale), the playability is very high, and it is a great kit from the second trilogy.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 starsLevel of DifficultyAverage rating3out of 5 starsValue for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 starsBuild Time: 35 minsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
- about 3 years agoAverage rating5out of 5 starsAwesome 30 Dollar PurchaseNick96 | 19-24I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is a fantastic lego set and another great addition to my lego star wars collection. Lego did a great job designing the set and the mini figure line up is great in this set. Yoda is always a great addition to any set and the Elite clone trooper was another great addition to the set. The set probably could've thrown in a third battle droid, but the line up was good. The spider droid was great and the stud launcher that they added on this one was another great addition to the set. The set has a lot of playability and it was designed very well. The value for money was great because it fits the 100 piece/ 10 dollar ratio. So the set is a good bang for your buck with 30 dollars and over 300 pieces. I would definitely recommend buying this set, you will not be disappointed.Play ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 starsLevel of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 starsValue for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 starsBuild Time: 45 minsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
- over 2 years agoAverage rating5out of 5 starsHome to homing droid, do you read?TheCoolestcat | 14-18I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfWell at first look this set is pretty amazing. comes with a variety of technic parts. I am not a fan of technic parts but when it comes to a star wars set, I would buy it no matter what. Perfect set for any prequel fans out their as it appeared in episode I and II. Also was in the clone wars series. better then the previous versions made buy lego, for this ones legs are very stable. i sugget getting this set if you missed out on the new yoda mold head. Great job on lego for this good build. could use some more droids or clones. Perfect addition to the battle of Kashyyyk. When i opened my set i could not find the green lightsaber pice for yoda :( .other then that this was a very satisfying build for me :)Play ExperienceAverage rating3out of 5 starsLevel of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 starsValue for MoneyAverage rating4out of 5 starsBuild Time: 1 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
- over 2 years agoAverage rating5out of 5 starsOG-9 Homing Spider DroidTirnelStargazer | 19-24I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThis is LEGO's third full-size version of the OG-9 Homing Spider Droid, and in my personal opinion it's the best of the three. At just under 10 cents/piece, it's a good value, and has a great selection of minifigures. Minifigures: Grand Master Yoda: This is the same version of Yoda that was first seen in 2103. He has robe printing on the front and back of his torso, and printing on his eyes and the back of his head. The headpiece is the highlight of this figure, and, like the Clone Wars version, captures the spirit of the character very well. He comes armed with a green lightsaber, although it would have been nice to get his cane as well. 41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper: This particular Clone Trooper armor design did not appear in the movies or The Clone Wars TV show, but it's easily one of my favorite Phase II clones that LEGO has ever released. He is only included in this set and the Kashyyyk Troopers battle pack from 2014. The olive green and dark tan color scheme go very well together. The legs, helmet, and front and back of the torso have a detailed camouflage design similar to Commander Gree, and the visor on the helmet is green rather than black, matching other Kashyyyk trooper helmets. I particularly love the fact that the helmet is molded in olive green. He has the standard angry clone face that's been around since 2013. He comes armed with a standard blaster. 2 Battle Droids: Nothing new here, but you can never have too many. DSD1 Dwarf Spider Droid: I have mixed feelings about this one. The design is good overall, but I'm not a fan of the stud shooter as its primary weapon, which is mounted on a ball joint. It may be a fun play feature for kids, but it looks a little wrong to me, as it doesn't resemble the blaster cannon on the real thing (that's been included on every previous version) at all. However, I'll admit that the stud shooters are much better than the flick-fire missiles, as long as they're not being used as minifigure weapons. The use of the fencin sword as an antenna isn't something I would have thought of. I didn't like it at first, but it does look much better than the basic lever, and it's a great piece that I didn't own previously. Even better, the set includes an extra sword. OG-9 Homing Spider Droid: This version of the Homing Spider Droid is well done overall. LEGO fixed the major flaw of the two previous versions by changing the pins used to connect the legs, so they now hold their position when posing the droid. This allows the droid to be posed in a variety of interesting ways, and also allows it to "walk" (sort of). The feet still flop around, but I don't consider that a flaw. The body is essentially the same as the 2013 version, and it looks great. The top half of the sphere can spin 360 degrees, and the lower half is fixed. The weapons, however, could be better. The dorsal cannon looks good, but its position is fixed. I havn't had any luck modifying it so it can spin/elevate like it's supposed to. The ventral cannon has a 6-stud shooter which I'm not completely averse to in this case, even though it doesn't look as accurate. It can move up and down by about 90 degrees, which is a perfectly suitable range, but it can't spin. My major complaint about this model, though, is a fairly trivial one in comparison: the inclusion of an area to seat a battle droid (or any other figure) on the back of the top half of the head. It interrupts the spherical shape of the head, making the model look weird from the back. In addition, the Homing Spider Droid is a self-propelled unit, like most Separatist vehicles, and therefore DOES NOT REQUIRE A PILOT (or even have room for one). This is a fact that LEGO seems rather fond of ignoring with Separatist assault vehicles and starfighters, including Vulture Droids, Droid Gunships, Tri-Fighters, and Tank Droids. All of these are droids in and of themselves, and each contains a droid brain that allows it to think and recieve commands on its own. Even if this weren't the case, the tube on the back of the dorsal cannon forces the droid to lean back or fold its head down to even fit in the seat and keep the eyes of the Spider Droid facing forward. Despite this, it's a minor flaw, and does not detract from the overall quality of the model. Final Thoughts: While I do have a few complaints, overall this is a very good set. It looks fairly accurate to the droid seen in Revenge of the Sith, and it's the easiest way at this point to get the current version of Yoda, which is a must-have for any LEGO Star Wars fan. The set is an excellent addition to any Kashyyyk collection; it goes well with the Droid Gunship and makes a formidable opponent for the ISP Swamp Speeder (Kashyyyk Troopers battle pack), AT-AP or Clone Turbo Tank. Pros: -Yoda -41st Elite Corps Trooper -Battle Droids -Fencing sword -Legs are very stable -overall design of both spider droids Cons: -Neither cannon can spin -Inclusion of pilot/driver seatPlay ExperienceAverage rating5out of 5 starsLevel of DifficultyAverage rating2out of 5 starsValue for MoneyAverage rating5out of 5 starsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
