Rogue Shadow (Lego 7672) - Released 2008
A gift from my mom and dad for my school report! The Rogue Shadow (taken from the 'Force Unleashed' video game) is GREAT. It's BIG and has a GREAT missile launcher.
The ship comes with no less than 3 minifigs, and they can change as well...
- First, there is Battle damaged Darth Vader.
You can make him wear his regular Darth Vader helmet, or Darth wearing only his mouth piece and looking pretty beat up.
- Juno Eclipse is the Rogue's pilot. She can wear her blond hair, or her pilot's cap.
- And then there's Darth Vader's secret apprentice. He looks pretty scary, with his bare arms and black gloves!
Here's the lego Rogue shadow in landing position. Here you can see one of its best and one of its worst parts... It's very cool that the wings can move from the forward to the top position. So, ready for take off... then change the wings to forward mode, and zooom!!!
Unfortunately, the landing gear is fragile, and breaks off very easily...
Rogue Shadow in Landing position
Inside the ship are many compartments...
Here you see the laser missiles (not sure if they are called that, but I call 'em that! ;-D ).
To the right the cockpit has opened up, although you can barely see it. Sorry for the bad picture. The cockpit only fits one of the three minifigs, I think they could've made more space in there, the ship is big enough (30cm by 33 cm, or 12" by 13").
And here you have the missile launcher, by far the BEST feature of this ship. Just below the ship on the right side (which is the right side, not the left side :-D) there is something you could call a trigger, and if you pull it backwards, the launcher moves up from the ship.
Pull it backward even more, and the missile is launched! I've reached about 6 meters (20 feet) with it, so its pretty powerful!
The Lego Rogue Shadow box has 482 pieces. It's one of my favorite lego ships.
