I’ve been wanting to discuss this great Star Wars Mon Calamari Star Cruiser set for awhile now. Once I saw that it’s on clearance for such a great price I just had to let everybody know!
This set was born out of an online survey. Several classic Star Wars scenes were presented to online voters who chose which one would become a Lego Star Wars set. They chose this iconic scene aboard the Home One, the flagship of the Rebel Alliance, as they prepare to attack the Death Star 2.
It comes with 6 rare minifigures including Admiral Ackbar, Mon Mothma, General Lando Calrissian, General Madine, a Mon Calamari officer and a Green Squadron A-wing pilot.
The model is about 17″ (43 cm) long and features Admiral Ackbar’s command center (complete with working swivel command chair), the briefing room with holographic projection of Endor and also a repair hanger bay with A-wing fighter ship. The repair bay crane really works and the engine wench lifts out the A-wing’s power drive. So not does the set look great it also has a lot of functionality.
I think especially given the new low price this set is a must have. Even if you pick this one up for the pieces to use in your own ship building it’s a good buy. The only problem is they are going to go fast and will be sold out soon. Check online for availability here (Lego Star Wars Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser) or if you have a Lego Store near you they might have a few left still.
