Eurobricks member Kernow reviewed the set.

It seems this first batch in the UK has included an Episode III Obi-wan head instead of a Qui-gon head.

Thanks for sharing. I for one can't wait to get my hands on one of these sets Very Happy !!! I wounder how long it'll be out because it's a limited edition set. I hope it's longer than some of the previous limited editions. Thanks again.

Thanks Morgan19. I'm going to pick one up right away when it comes out. I'd hate to miss it because it looks awesome. I'll also pick up a new 7666 Hoth Base as well (maybe even two for the snowtroopers and rebel troopers Wink ).

one would assume that Lego will replace the incorrect heads if you contact them in the usual fashion?

And how would you know exactly? Do you want LEGO to put a seal on each box with a message saying 'Real fleshie Qui Gon headpiece inside!'. This is probably an isolated incident anyway but are you so hesitant to contact LEGO if there is a problem with your set?

i sense hostility in almost every post directed at me from u poohbear....yet i have done nothing to you.

as for me being hesitant for contacting them myself, im a 17 yr old with not much knowledge into the wider lego community. that is why i am here, to gain that knowledge....shouting at me from all directions isnt helping anyone, nor is it really doing anything productive (except maybe vent anger but thats beside the point)

anyway as a constructive point to the topic, i do actually like the kit....if anything im just trying to figure out when it will hit Australian shores....

I'll buy one here in the US the second I see it. If I get 2 flesh Obi-Wan heads, I'll just contact LEGO customer service and get the correct one. Problem solved and a free Obi-Wan to boot. These are the kinds of mistakes I can live with Very Happy

The "Limited Edition" status probably just refers to it's Toys R Us exclusivity and not a set quantity. Either way, it'll also be at S@H so it won't be that hard to get. I know I won't make the mistake of waiting like I did on Imperial Inspection. Blasted printed stormtrooper legs...

i bought it today ... will report which head I get later!

Interestingly, I note that if you try and order replacement parts via Lego's website, set number 7665 is not recognised, so I guess it's a phone call job if it is wrong.

Thank god LSW sets are never walmart exclusives! I'm sure lego will either correct the heads in later shipments or of coarse like pete said we could call for replacements. Smile

TRU lists it as $100, but considering it's 70 (and not 80 like most 100 sets), I assume it'll be $90.

Hmmm...the price seems really expensive for me at least, but it looks pretty swell. Especially the fleshies and the new R2. I'm not sure if I can shell out a hundred bucks for it though.

I gotta say, that thing would only serve me for MOC parts. I think that, well, because I never dismantle sets, unless I really don't like me. The only thing I really want out of this set, is that Green Astromech, and that is it. I'm going to wait for brickshelf for the thing.

The only problem is that the entire set is red, and most of my MOC's and Star Wars business is grey/bley etc, the set will not give me a plethora of working parts as compared to the ISD. However, that dark red is beautiful, so it might inspire me to build something red like the Hell's Anvil. But the figures are definitely what makes the set attractive.
