75004 Z-95 Headhunter





Name: Z-95 Headhunter
Set Number: 75004
Pieces: 373
Price: US$49.99, €49.99, GBPL39.99
Ages: 8-14
Minifigs: 3
Theme: Star Wars
Subtheme: The Clone Wars

BOX:

On the front of the box are the fighter, the set informations, and a nice little green box with the figures and the names and it show that each are new. The box has the new green art with Yoda, LEGO and STAR WARS logo of course.

The back is very nice with a lot of green color and pictures . The biggest one showed to us the back of the open fighter and its functions on smaller box. The other are battle scenes and down plan and side view of the fighter.There is small picture about the Yoda Chronicles. A good point, the box is not oversized, just right the bags have enough space and only a little air.

Contents:

Inside the set are 4 numbered bags, stickers and the instructions. The instuctions is bigger than the half of the box, almost big as the box.
The first page of the book showed how should we use teh Brick Separator and the numbered bags. The second page tell us the contents of the bags and some warning: "IMPORTANT: Never modify the elements or use projectiles than provided with this toy." On the page 7,27,33,35,53,55 we get the same Yoda art. On the end page are the parts list, a Yoda Chronicles page with a code (s4yh3y) and pictures about the sets of the wave.

Bag 1:

Here are the Clone Pilot, the Brick Separator, Rubber and some technic parts. From this bag can we build the main body of the ship with the rocket launcher.

Bag 2:

This is the "nose" of the starfighter and the wrap of the body. In this bag there aren't any minifigures.

Bag 3:

The new 501st Clone Trooper I love you and the engines are in this bag.

Bag 4:

Finally! Here are Pong Krell and the wings with cannons.

The Finished Set:

The Headhunter is perfect, it's realy looks like in the original in the Clone Wars series, here is the ship's back as on the box.

The cocpit looks nice and the pilot can be removed easily because there aren't any studs.

We can open the back and can put weapons inside.

The landing gear works very good and the rocket launcher too. For the firing you must pull the little black technic piece and the launcher turn down and shoot. It is perfect for destroying ground units because it fires a little bit down. And there isn't any flick fire missiles.


The minifigures:

I love all of them. The biggest attraction of this wave is the Pong Krell minifig. It is very detailed and it has painting everywhere, it look s wonderful. The second figure is the 501st Clone Pilot which has a new helmet, it has good painting too.(On my one's helmet has a little printing fail) The last one is the 501st Clone Trooper,same as in the AT-RT set. It has new phase 2 helmet nice blue printings. this is amazing and it can be one of the best (or the best) clone trooper minifigures. Each minifig has back and leg printings.



Ratings:
Playability: 9/10 This isn't a largest set but it has a lot of functions whiches work good and easy. It can fight with enemy's starfighters and ground units too. But you didn't get enemies.
Design: 10/10 It's looks like tho original fighter, the size perfect, not biger,not smaller.
Price: 8/10 It's not the most expensive set but it could be a little bit cheaper.
Minifigures: 9/10 It's OK but it would the best when we get one more new one like Fives or a named 501st clone trooper.
Parts: 9/10 There aren't so much new part, and they should give printed parts instead of stickers.
Total: 45/50 I think the set hasn't any big problem or deficiency. This is one of the best sets of this wave

Finally a comparison with the ARC-170:

not bad at all .... like the fact they don't have flick-fires...less parts to loose

mini-figs look very nice .....

fighter is slim and sleek ...can it stand-up to alot of swooshing ??? ...it does look rather sturdy in nature

its decently sturdy; the wings are not the strongest....


...... but they are decently strong(good enough for kid usage); they definitely are still lego designed and thus not MOC grade strength

'kay .... so play with caution ....no hard bumps or drops .....but nicely play-able with an added bit of care taken.....and it will last

this is in the 10 up range age wise then .... not that I'd give any lego set to an under 8 btw .....under that age I find children just fling blocks all over....

so very true ..... I once saw a woman give her child a set that was clearly for the 14 up group and the kid was only about 5 .....the "choking hazard" warning was right there in her face too ..but still let the kid get it .....scarey very scarey .....

omg ... those are 'advance' builds .... even seasoned builders had to be very patient reading the instructions and making sense of it all ...brain dead person for sure ! .....I bet it was opened and left sitting in the box

makes me wonder at times just where are the parents brains when it comes to their children .....
