8002 Destroyer Droid

Bought Autumn 2002.

Year 2000, 553 pieces

Folded into rolling position.

When you roll it (preferably on a hard floor), the red axle joiner is pressed and releases a "chain reaction" in the droid causing it to fling open into battle position as seen below.

It works about 75% of the times when you've got the internals correct (doomed to make building mistakes partly due to corrected instructions {loose pages with corrections} and partly due to complex model) and also got the technique down.

You talking to me!?

This is an outstanding set that really impresses!

Main model subdivided into five steps.

Great pieces

Lot's of beams etc., almost no stud's at all - Yikes!
Jet engines/cannons


Building instruction on Brickshelf (N/A)
Inventory on Peeron
Set reference on Lugnet
