Rated 5 out of 5 by AdiChiru Very nice set
Very well designed fighter and the rest of the set. A little annoying Obi Wan's cape as it pushes the head up sometimes... I guess the material should have been a little less stiff. Also the soldiers are not that stable and it is hard to play with them without getting their arms disconnected.
The spaceship is very well designed! The engines can easily be disconnected if needed. Easy to play with even for my 4 years old son. He actually built part of it by himself - I only gave him the correct piece and showed him the instructions.
Very happy to have this set!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Metaltron I'll try spinning, that's a good trick!
The Phantom Menace is my 2nd favourite Star Wars film and I was desperate to get this set to expand my collection. Initially my main incentive to buy this set was the Obi-wan minifigure so that I could have a padawan Obi-wan (as I already have him from episodes II, III and IV). But once I finished building the set I realised how well-designed the starfighter was compared to other sets I've purchased. The startfighter itself is very light (which adds to the playability of the set) and looks great when you compare it to the movie version. The starfighter is equipped with two firing missiles which work through a simple release mechanism; by pushing a brick from one side to the other you can fire the two missiles. The are adequately placed and the mechanism is easy to use, although sometimes I have fired them by accident so do be careful where you put your finger when holding the model! Behind the cockpit there is also space for R2D2, not only does he fit in perfectly, but he is also secured in by two bricks beneath his feet that means that he will only come out if you pull him out or eject him, so if you want to try spinning, it works very well! My only problem with the starfighter is the stickers; although they look great when on, they are extremely difficult to place and must be annoying for younger kids to ask their parents to do, and annoying for the parents as well. I also had to modify inside the cockpit; as it is designed to house only Anakin Skywalker or any minifigure with small legs. I removed a smooth tile brick from the bottom of the cockpit so I could sit either Anakin or the Naboo pilot in there. Now the minifigures are also wonderful; R2D2 has a nice newer chrome-like design and Anakin looks cool enough. The generic battle droids and fold-able Droidekas are good for army building but the battle droid commander is essential here and all I feel it is missing is Qui-gon for that scene ('Coruscant..uh..that doesn't compute..uh..you're under arrest!') but its still a great addition nonetheless. The Naboo Pilot is a nice minifigure too and of course Obi-wan is the highlight; with a perfectly captured expression and detail on his legs, and even his padawan braid included on his torso. The extras that come with the set aren't really needed like the missile carrier and fuel tank but they have unique pieces so every little counts. The 'cherry-on-top' of this set has to be the starfighter's stand; not only does the starfighter fit perfectly on it, but it does not attach in any way so you can pull it off effortlessly and it also spins 360 so it is perfect for displaying the model.
Overall this set is a triumph and well worth a purchase for any fan of The Phantom Menace. And I look forward to more sets from Episode I in the future.

Wow. I love this set. 3 Battle droids, Anakin, Obi Wan, R2, Naboo pilot and 2 droidekas to start with!
The N1 Starfighter is an accurate representation in Lego and accurate in size to the minifigures. It has become my favourite Lego set. Also included is a torpedo reloading vehicle, refuelling unit aaaaannnd a staircase aaaaaannnnd a base for the starfighter to sit on and it rotates!!
This play set has so much playability. I can't fault this set. Highly recommend.
Would consider buying a second one and build a costume docking bay for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PaulNee Excellent Addition to the SW Line-up
This was given as one of the LEGO sets received on Christmas. I have had an opportunity to use it and see how it works.
All in all, I love this set. The aesthetics of the Starfighter are hands-down, absolutely gorgeous. I actually prefer the LEGO adaptation to the original film model. Adding in a pair of droidekas and three battle droids, as well as Obi-Wan, the fuel tank, spare spring-loaded blaster bolts, and a crate of blasters, was, I think, a very good choice. It helps to make it worth the price tag.
The only things I don't like about it are: the fact that the tail of the ship can break off, although they did a good job trying to make it more sturdy; and that the configuration of the cockpit is only made for Anakin's legs, which are the small kind - but that can be easily modified, allowing figures with regular legs to fit comfortably. I don't doubt there are plenty of people who have done this.
So, in conclusion, this set is definitely worthwhile. I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TTandLE Best Naboo Starfighter since 2002!!
I got this set for my birthday, and it was great!! It was an average build because the stickers are a little challenging, but overall, this set looks amazing.
Minifigures are Nice
Extra Spring Loaded Missiles
Extra Mini Builds
R2's Head has to Turn
One thing I wish Lego included was a Darth Maul minifig and a Padme minifig. Overall, a great set!!

In future will always check George first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CherryPaul Awesome...If you are a fan of Episode 1
Really great set, and I love the droidekas. Those are just great, mostly because they show up in so many scenes. my personal problem with this set is that once I got this, I felt like I needed the Sith Infiltrator in order to finish the play-set, and get Qui Gon Jinn and Darth Maul. With that said, I suggest if you don't plan on getting the Sith infiltrator, do not purchase this. But, if you are not to big of a star wars fan and you aren't bothered by not movie accurate scenario Lego sets, then this would be perfect for you. This set is practically the whole battle scene. Overall, without my personal opinion, this set is well priced, mini-figs are great, and, if you are a fan of Episode 1, then I highly recommend this set. (But who likes Episode 1???)
