I bought this set because I wanted the Yoda and R2-D2 minifigures and here they appear together in an affordable set. I didn't even realise until after I'd bought the set that I couldn't quite remember seeing Yoda ever piloting a ship? I thought it might have been in the prequel trilogy and I don't know those films as well. Turns out this ship is from season 6 of the animated series The Clone Wars, and that Yoda's Astromech droid on that journey is indeed R2-D2.
The build was relatively challenging for such a small set, and the only repetitive bit was building the four wings. Only a few stickers, and the ones that are included add nicely to the design. The ship is quite an unusual colour for Star Wars, which I like. The finished ship feels sturdy and comes with a liftable cockpit roof, a cockpit glass you can lower, bendable wings and two spring-loaded shooters.
The minifigures in this little set are fantastic! Yoda is exactly the right colour and has detailed eyes, slightly bendy rubber ears, short legs (non-bendable) and nice printing. R2-D2 looks very film accurate.
- The minifigures are fantastic!
- Fun and quite challenging build
- The finished Starfighter looks great
- Should have come with someplace to store Yoda's lightsaber
I recommend this for all Star Wars Lego fans!

A nice set for any Star Wars collectorWhile I must admit I bought the set mainly for the Yoda minifigure, the ship itself is nice and I'm sure kids could have fun playing with it. It has spring-loaded lasers that shoot out when you push your finger down on their tips.
The minifigures are great and I appreciate them being the prequel trilogy variants, rather than the hideous Clone Wars versions. I would not have bought the set otherwise.
If you plan on buying this set, be aware that some of the R2-D2 heads may be slightly misprinted, but in my experience they've been printed quite straight.

A Quick, Swooshable BuildBought this set out of intrigue more than anything else, as I didn't remember any scenes involving Yoda in a fighter, but figured it must've been from one of the Clone Wars Episodes.
The set itself feels very nice in the hand and is easy to put together. Mine had a small mistake where there were 3 inverted 3x1 slopes and only one curved 3x1, but one BrickLink visit later fixed it and it's now nice and smooth.
The spring-loaded shooters seem well placed and unlikely to get accidentally triggered, so that's good. What seems strange is that there's no place for Yoda's lightsaber anywhere, not unless you're comfy with sticking it through one of the Technic pins on the wing attachment points. In the end, I just took it apart and put the hilt behind him in the cockpit and squeezed the bar element behind his neck. You can still close the cockpit up normally and it looks nice.
One other thing is, there are no real controls for him to use, or even a display panel in the cockpit. I used the left-over light gray 1x1 slope and the 1x1 dark gray plate with the trans-green stud on top to make a kind of control area for him which adds some texture inside (see included Picture for reference).
Bonus points to LEGO for the extra lightsaber hilt and Technic cylinder connector, can never have too many of those..
All in all, I'd recommend this whether you're planning on just displaying it (the wings give it some nice posing options), buying it for the parts (Dark Green FTW) or just to play around the house like I know you'll want to (I'm 31 and still found time to smuggle it to the office and shoot people in the back). Heck, try it on the cat, the kids, the Missus (if you feel like you can escape quickly enough), it's a lot easier than the Naboo Fighter to carry around and lot less conspicuous too ;)
Happy flying & hunting!

It's not bad, but I don't know what it's for?Whilst perusing the local supermarket and picking up Luke's Landspeeder, I also spotted this chap, a fighter craft flown by none other than the irrepressible Yoda!
Wait, what? Yoda, in a Starfighter? Now I'll admit to not paying that much attention to the prequels, but I genuinely don't recall Yoda in a plane. On Dagobah, yes. In the imperial council chambers, yes. In space, flying a craft? Nope.
The ship itself is actually a very tidy build, in an unusual colour for Star Wars fighters. It's a very solid construction and mostly interesting to build, but as usual for quad wing Jedi designs, it gets a bit repetitive at the wing building stage. Still, hardly Lego's fault the good guys appreciate symmetry. The ship has a good spot for standing Yoda in (as he's short, he isn't afforded bending minifig legs), but there's absolutely nowhere for his light sabre to go. Yoda himself is a lovely design and his droid companion is... hold on, R2-D2? Since when did... oh, never mind, I don't even know where this ship featured! But this does mean I now have nearly as many R2s as Stormtroopers. Lots of Stormtroopers is a good thing, but so many R2s is just silly. Why is he in so many sets?
I'll confess, the sole reason I bought it was so I could have a Yoda figure. For some reason, I've never been able to grab any other set with this tiny green Jedi in it and he's waaaay too big a character to be missing out on. It cost me twenty quid, but that's too much to pay for a missing figure and, to be honest, I'm glad the ship itself is a smart looking thing or I'd have been really annoyed with myself.
