LEGO Star Wars 8039 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser : My 11 yr old son’s opinion

I acquired this as a current for my son’s eighth birthday. Many thanks to amazon, the very first deal which arrived with lacking parts was replaced speedily (we have been blessed the lacking items were at the early stages of the construct-up)my son loved it although building it, and he desired my assistance only in number of events. The lousy part is that this actually is not a toy. I guess it would be more ideal for collectors and/or youngsters fascinated in putting it jointly and put it up for display screen, given that each time my son experimented with to engage in with it (alongside with his other legos) he had trouble to retain it with each other.

It is a great lego toy but it prices much too mu`ch if you lowerd the cost down to £120 in its place of £184 you would get alot a lot more prospective buyers not just this toy most of the toys.

Magnificent enjoyment but equivalent disappointment when instruction reserve did not consist of all the directions esp section2. Not great more than enough at the selling price.Here are the specifications for the LEGO Star Wars 8039 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser:

  • 1170 pieces
  • Includes 5 Minifigures – Chancellor Palpatine / Senate Commando x 2 / Clone Gunner / Clone Pilot
  • Retired in 2011

My son enjoys lego and wished this for ages. He is twelve several years outdated and it took him two hrs to establish it. He has created his individual ships due to the fact and is extremely clever at constructing. The instruction book was pretty effortless to stick to. It requires you stage by phase making use of pics. He has had it for a thirty day period and continue to plays with it every day.

Design’s not excellent, even now a excellent design. Like just about all the bigger star wars lego sets, this 1 is pleasant to search at (but not so strong to maintain/engage in with). On most of our star wars ships, i grabbed additional ‘reinforcing’ pieces from our current selection to make the product sturdier—it is feasible to modify it in a way so as not to change the outer seem of the ship. Without supplemental reinforcement to the layout, this set is more like a great display you could possibly retain on a shelf or desk and play with very carefully. I bought this at $149 usd, so the cost-for each-piece price tag was about appropriate, decrease than several latest sets there are not any certainly one of a kind areas to incorporate to your large selection however. The items (virtually 1200) are not in numbered baggies for developing needs. To avoid major irritation hunting for pieces throughout building, you will will need to do some preliminary sorting by colour or sort. With the parts considerably sorted out, this is however what i would contemplate a demanding build for a scaled-down baby. Due to the fact there are a whole lot of connecting sections, it is really significant that selected items are in exactly the ideal area with much less-than-perfect attention to element an inexperienced builder might understand down the street that anything just isn’t fitting together properly mainly because of an previously oversight (mercifully, errors can be corrected in most circumstances with out breaking the total detail again down). Youngsters may master a superior lesson there—pay interest to guidance, check out your get the job done carefully, be persistent, and many others.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • LEGO Star Wars 8039
  • “The Republic Fleet is here, we must withdraw.”
  • Excellent modelling
  • Great for grown-ups!
  • Lego Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser
  • good toy but to expensive

Just the high quality that you would expect from a lego solution. This is an exceptional ship, really durable and robust. There are also a whole lot of extras with it. It usually takes some constructing but it is worthy of it in the close.

My 10 12 months previous boy beloved placing this jointly, as he is into star wars & expending time with lego. It far too a although to put with each other and then he started out participating in with it, unfortantly bits started to come off, as it has wings, etc, then he acquired board of placing them back again in the proper area, so he put it in his lego box and just places other bits on top rated of it, when he performs with it. So great initially, but re wing bits, it would be better if they had been bigger bits of lego, somewhat than tiny bits which could conveniently drop of lots of times.

    The children were very happy with this item and. . The children were very happy with this item and toy.
    1. Design’s not perfect, still a great model. Like almost all the larger star wars lego sets, this one is delightful to look at (but not so durable to hold/play with). On most of our star wars ships, i grabbed additional “reinforcing” pieces from our existing collection to make the model sturdier—it’s possible to modify it in a way so as not to change the outer look of the ship. Without additional reinforcement to the design, this set is more like a cool display you might keep on a shelf or desk and play with carefully. I got this at $149 usd, so the price-per-piece cost was about right, lower than many current sets; there are not any truly unique parts to add to your large collection though. The pieces (almost 1200) are not in numbered baggies for building purposes. To avoid major frustration searching for parts during construction, you will need to do some preliminary sorting by color or type. With the pieces somewhat sorted out, this is still what i would consider a challenging build for a smaller child. Because there are a lot of connecting sections, it’s critical that certain pieces are in exactly the right place; with less-than-perfect attention to detail an inexperienced builder might realize down the road that something isn’t fitting together correctly because of an earlier oversight (mercifully, mistakes can be corrected in most cases without breaking the whole thing back down). Kids might learn a good lesson there—pay attention to instructions, check your work carefully, be persistent, etc.

    Just the quality that you would expect from a lego product. This is an excellent ship, very sturdy and strong. There are also a lot of extras with it. It takes some building but it is worth it in the end.
    1. It is a good lego toy but it costs too mu`ch if you lowerd the price down to £120 instead of £184 you would get alot more buyers not just this toy most of the toys.
      1. My 10 year old boy loved putting this together, as he is into star wars & spending time with lego. It too a while to put together and then he started playing with it, unfortantly bits started to come off, as it has wings, etc, then he got board of putting them back in the right place, so he put it in his lego box and just puts other bits on top of it, when he plays with it. So good initially, but re wing bits, it would be better if they were bigger bits of lego, rather than small bits which could easily fall of lots of times.
  3. My 8 year old son, who loves lego, was challenged by this model, but built it nonetheless in 3-4 sessions, and was extremely proud of himself. It is quite delicate when built, but that in itself is not cause for criticism. The delivery (to hungary) was in 2 days from placing the order, by normal post – a record.
    1. This is an amazing lego toy but when i finished it most of the pieces fell off so i did not play with it but then one day i decided to remake it and i reinforced it. It took a long long time to make it but it was worth it.

    My son has started collecting the star wars clone wars lego sets and chose this one to spend his birthday money on. Seeing him rush to his room and disappear for an hour, surface for food, grab his 8 yr old sister to help, and resume building makes me say that this is an excellent item. He has trouble reading but managed to put this together himself and continues to play with it with enjoyment. Full marksstar wars lego 7678 droid gunship.
    1. Very clever and detailed lego model. Kept my intelligent 10 year old occupied for a week and a half. Only help from me was in in making sure the initial pieces were well pushed together. Once built tends to fall apart if handled too much- it is effectively a complex model , not a toy. Look out for the great chancellor palpatine.

    Lego venator-class republic attack cruiser. The box was badly damaged on arrival so would have been unsuitable to give as a gift. My 7 year old and i have not finished building yet but he assures me it will be a cool addition to his collection.

    My son loves lego and wanted this for ages. He is twelve years old and it took him two hours to build it. He has made his own ships since and is very clever at building. The instruction book was very easy to follow. It takes you stage by stage using pictures. He has had it for a month and still plays with it every day.

    Was a bit hard for my 8 year old, but didnt mind doing it with him :). But did seem expensive, and not so big once built.

    Fabulous excitement but equal disappointment when instruction book did not include all the instructions esp section2. Not good enough at the price.
    1. Having assembled many a stars wars lego vehicle for my son over the last few years, i am well aware that after all my hard work it will start to crumble as soon as he starts to play with it – “dad, another piece has fallen off my anakin vulture grievous cruiser clone whatever”. The republic attack cruiser is a weekends work, and the idea of having to trace a home for stray parts that would enevitably come loose as soon as he picked it up haunted me as i put the thing together. Sure enough; he’d barely touched it and the familiar cry went up. So do your self a favour – by a train set instead.
      1. As usual with amazon, shipping was perfect and this lego toy arrived in perfect conditions. My nephew was delighted with all the fun that this space-ship can provide.

    My 7 year old son had 2 days of fun and concentration immediately after christmas making the venator-class republic attack cruiser. With a little effort from your youngster you can ignore the 9-14 on the box. The gift was also delivered in good time. Once made it needs to be looked after/handled with care.

    I bought this as a present for my son’s 8th birthday. Thanks to amazon, the first package which came with missing pieces was replaced quickly (we were lucky the missing pieces were at the early stages of the build-up)my son loved it while building it, and he needed my help only in few occasions. The bad part is that this actually is not a toy. I guess it would be more suitable for collectors and/or children interested in putting it together and put it up for display, since every time my son tried to play with it (along with his other legos) he had trouble to keep it together.

    “the republic fleet is here, we must withdraw. “. Lego continue their clone wars releases in 2009 with set 8039: venator class republic attack cruiser and while the scale is drastically reduced this is nonetheless a great replica of the backbone of the republic fleet. Built using a similar construction framework to 2006’s 6211 imperial star destroyer, this predecessor is packed with play features and great detailing. The forward module roof hinges open to reveal palpatine’s office inside. There is a rotating throne chair, control panel, storage box with a hologram of the death star and room for guards as well. On the outside there are laser cannon batteries, one on each side, and they can move up and down covering about 170 degrees of fire. The aft section comprises several compartments. The hull plates on the wings hinge up through 90 degrees and the lower wing tips flatten out as well. In the front there is a removable bomb bay drop pod. This contains 5 bombs and by turning the axle on the port side the cogs inside release the bombs onto your targets below.
