8036- Separatist shuttle review
Official set 8036- review- note: NOT CUSTOM!!
About this creation
New interesting Lego star wars set are now available- at least here in northern Europe- 8036 Separatist shuttle it's quite extraordinary lego set - first i thought it could be fake when i first saw it on Brickshelf as preliminary set. It's said that it will appear on August- but that's probably in America. Well there is another review in Eurobricks website- but i had to do my own because i haven't found one here.


There are the minifigs: Viceroy Nute Gunray- two battle droids, one pilotdroid and senator Onaconda Farr- These guys are only real reason to buy this set if you don't want some gray and dark blue parts- well i wanted both the figs and the parts and bought it- i don't usually buy so big sets anymore- but i can't help it i wanted more droids and neimoidian one extra rodian is also nice addition to my collection.

This is the real reason why to buy this set: VICEROY NUTE GUNRAY! finally! It took ten years when lego finally make this bad guy- i think that's because lego company thinks that he is uninteresting character- because he is not in action- but we lego star wars collectors (at least i) have awaited him since Attack of the Clones- when it was finally clear that he will be major player in new Star Wars trilogy. Many have awaited him since 1999 when he was one of the main bad guys in Phantom Menace- now he is finally there lego Nute Gunray- yippee!

Nute is actually pretty easy to customize with decals and all- but different thing is his hat- or hats to be more exact- he have different hat in every movie and it's always very strange shaped- this new hatpart is nice it's neimoidian hat in which Nute wears in AOTC and cw as well- and yes backwards it looks like a chair...

Other actual minifig in this set is Onaconda Farr senator of Rodia- (?????) why him- he is not very important character in Clone wars and are seen only briefly in films as unidentified Rodian senator- well this set is from the cw episode 8 "Bombad jedi" of course Onaconda or Uncle Ono is maincharacters in this episode- still Padmé and JarJar are real maincharacters- why they are not included- why???? Why they put quite boring Rodian senator instead of the action heros of the show- don't understand i want Clone wars Padmé- maybe she will appear in the next wave of cw.


Then the shuttle itself- it's seen many times in the Clone Wars and in movies as well (but in CW every sep vessel is blue patterned so is this one too) Movies this shuttle is seen with more yellowish or brownish colorscheme...
There is some little actions in the shuttle

Opening cockpit with droidpilot- it's nice idea- but i wonder why there is no glass on the cockpit at all- "real" version has big glass in it this one is just solid gray- pilot don't see where to drive- not very helpful- i think this part should be transparent (darker glass) with stickers no gray with stickers...

This one is fun- opening doors reveals Nute Gunray- who sits in funny removable chair- his shuttle doesn't look very nice inside though- there is not enough space for everything else than the viceroy himself- not very luxury travel....

And there are of course the moving legs underneath the shuttle- but nothing special- it's not very interesting as spacecraft though- it's not completely accurate and the "big wing" is hollow- because antennae goes inside it when cockpit is open...


And here are three other minifigs- battledroids good addition to everyones droidcollection- there is never too many droids when building a big clone wars-battle and if we compare this set to bigger Republic Attack Shuttle set- there is almost twice as many minifigs and it's cheaper and smaller


And this was something i had to do compare Uncle Ono with other Rodian infamous bounty hunter Greedo- nice vig from the year 2003- Well heads are identical- but color is different- it makes me think that did Lego company have so many extra Greedos that they decided to repaint them to be Onaconda Farr???? NOTE: GREEDO ARE NOT FROM THIS SET!!



Another comparison: New and old pilot droid- new has completely blue body- but old one from the year 2000 (from Ep1 sets) have little blue paintings on chest- strange thing is that there seems not to be droid pilots in cw at all?? anyway lego have remembered that pilotdroids have blue markings good- but i like more the old idea...
NOTE: THERE IS ONLY ONE DROID PILOT IN THIS SET- ONE WITH BLUE BODY!!


From back difference is clear- new droidpilot is always a droidpilot it cannot be used as extra battledroid in dios or vigs- old one however looks original battledroid behind



Pros:
-Good minifigcount
-Some rare pieces (some dark blue pieces and slopes)
-Finally Nute Gunray- and he is good fig for both cw and filmstuff!!
-Three droids!!!
-pilot droid is blue (why there is no bluepilots in the show?)
-Not too big or expensive

Cons:
-Quite inaccurate
-Strange decision to put Onaconda Farr in it- (there is no cw-Padmé, cw-JarJar, Admiral Yualaren, tactical droids, Wat Tambor, Cad Bane, Argyus, Luminara, droidcommandos, Gree or cw-Kit Fisto in any cw sets so why unimportant minorcharacter?)
- No glass on the cockpit
- Pilotdroid have completely blue body
- Nute's facecolor is light grey, but hands are dark gray- i would like sandgreen better- and why his hands are darker- anyway he's good and his in a bad mood as he almost always is...

And sorry about shadowy pics- possible mispellings or bad grammar....

Quoting Juan Carranza With this new set we will be able to make political debates!!!!!YAY!!!!!
LOLZ- good point- normally lego don't do political figs- but we are still missing important senators such as Padmé, Jar Jar and Bail Organa but Palpy as chancellor has appeared now too and Nute finally but i still think it was strange decision to do onaconda before padme....

Quoting Indiana Pearce AKA Mr. Spock AKA Killing You I have some glass pieces to modify it. They came from the Aqua Raiders sets (where are they???) and I can't wait to get it!!!
I think that magnagurd fighter have also good glass to this- but as i said it's actually accurate-because Gunray's shuttle doesn't have a cockpit- it's automated version....

Well i think i was not completely right about the cockpit- this seems to be automated model- with has no cockpit(actually there seems to be no cockpit in that shuttle in the bombad jedi) so it's quite accurate- but i doubt that automated model have that kind of droidpilot- anyway there is cockpit in many models like the one armed model in the Dooku captured- that kind of shuttle have glassed cockpit...

Quoting Commander Falcon ¬ How did you get it?
I bought it from a shop- that's easiest way to get it- i think it's not yet out in America or netshops- i dunno- at least i think it's launched in Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and here in Finland, i'm not sure about all though....

Quoting Commander Fero wow lucky! I wanted that so bad! hmm... how big is the inside room? looks small but how big by how many studs?
4x6 -very small with Gunray and his big hat- there is no place for his bodyguards- possibly i'm gonna build better mocversion- these sets are good for moccing- there is lot's of special pieces that help when building very own version of some specific ship.
