Fans of Star Wsrs ill delight in some of the mini adventure scenes which are on offer. Taken from the film 'Return Of The Jedi,' this set offers the scenario where Han Solo and his crew take on the shield generator on the forest moon of Endor. In the film they have to break into a Fort Knox like base and shut the generator down. The action play set comprises four figures set against the themic backdrop.
The figures include Han Solo, who comes in his Endor gear. Smart looking as ever, Han is kitted out in brown slacks and a black waistcoat and his usual white undershirt. Harrison Ford's rugged features have been captured well and the figure is sexy and accurate.
The R2D2 model is a vast improvement over the Kenner toy. With moveable joints and excellent detailing on the body, his features are perfect and the blue colours on his body come to life with a kick. You can twist his head too and arrange poses.
There is also a Biker Scout, similar in style to a Stormtrooper, with a panda like look. There is a good amount of armour work here and the torso is strapping and manly. The helmet I like a lot, with an air of mystery about it. Again, he can be posed fully. The final figure is the Imperial Officer. A non descript looking man in a black uniform. His sombre face has been shaped well and his outfit reflects that seen in the film. He is not visually interesting, but his inclusion enhances play scenarios for the set.
On the downside, a rebel commando would have made the set more complete, as these appear in this scene in the film. The figures are set against a well depicted backdrop with good colour work and detailing. You can leave them in the play set or take them out as you see fit.
The set will cost somewhere between ten and fifteen pounds which is a very good price for a key piece of Jedi memorabilia.
