LEGO Star Wars 9499: Gungan Sub : Good quality could have done with a few more characters

Good quality could have done with a few more characters. Good quality could have done with a few more characters and been harder to build.

I was very pleased with this item and it was well packed. As for my grandson of 10yrs, he was simply over the moon with it. He is an avid fan of star wars and all connected with it.

Good packing and instructions were very clear. Here are the specifications for the LEGO Star Wars 9499: Gungan Sub:

  • Includes Queen Amidala, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn and Jar Jar Binks.
  • Features opening cockpit, 2 cargo holds, 2 cargo containers, rotating tail, 4 flick missiles, detachable mini-sub with harpoon and 2 Lightsabers.
  • Detach the mini-sub.
  • Fire the missiles.
  • Rotate Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi minifigure heads to reveal decoration with underwater breathing devices.

It’s a lego set, you build it, it’s star wars, what else can i say?.

My son is totally lego bonkers. Star wars being his favouite. This took him a lot less than it should have to build and he is nine,,,,.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • One of my favourite Lego sets
  • Another sub, one must have minifig
  • Excellent kit – great ship design, great figures included
  • Grabdchild Happy
  • LEGO Star Wars Gungan Sub

Was brought as a xmas present for my god son, looking forward to playing with the lego over the holidays.

A really wonderful design, as usual for e lego set, and many good pieces for building everything your imagination dares.

  1. Excellent kit – great ship design, great figures included. We’re in the process of building this, and it’s impressive. We have built the tail part, which you can’t see from the picture, but it is really good and has it’s own pod for a person to sit in, in addition to the three clear pods on the main part of the sub/ship. This was a christmas present for a nearly 7 year old and he is quite capable of building it himself, but we’re helping him as there are a few fiddly bits and slightly confusing bits in the instructions. The big bonus is the people that come with it. Ja ja binks is solidly made (he can cost £20 bought separately), queen amidala is rare to come by i think and he now has a younger version of obi wan, as well as his older version, plus qui jon whatsisname. Great kit and worth the money (although i still think £35 would be more like it).
    1. Excellent – lego always a great present – grandson loved it – built within a few minutes and still togetheter – good quality can’t beat lego.
  2. 6 year old grandson is a bit of a star wars lego addict and really enjoyed this present. He found it quite easy to construct so maybe age range should be adjusted.
    1. Bought this for my nephew for christmas as he loves lego and he loves it. I don’t think you can go wrong with lego – the quality is always great and in particular 6/7 year olds love star wars.

    My 8 year old son who is crazy about lego star wars was very excited to receive this from father christmas. He tried to build it on his own at first but that proved quite a challenge so we finished building it together.
    1. My son bought this with his birthday money – he’s a huge lego star wars fan and the price for this set on amazon was cheaper than elsewhere.
      1. Only worth because of queen amidala minifigure + parts. If you’re going after the minifig don’t bother with it and pay only15 £ for it.

    A present for a grandson who loves anything to do with lego and star wars. He has enjoyed building and playing with the toy and it is one of his favourite toys.
    1. I bought it for my son, he loved it, it reached next day before 1300hrs on saturday and my son loves this, really at good price.
      1. Great addition to the collection. The item was exactly as described and arrived on time. This has made a great addition to my son’s collection of lego star wars.
  5. This was requested for the birthday boy who knew only granny would understand his “need” for it. Shops proved unable to provide so used internet shopping. Goods arrived correctly and in time.
    1. I had already purchased this lego set from ebay as a present for my grandson. When it arrived the condition of the box was awful. Creased,torn and shabby, and it was listed as new. So in desperation i found this on amazon. I wish i had done this in the first place as the set arrived well packaged and was mint, shiny and new. Good value as well (cheaper than lego shop). Very pleased as well because it arrived quickly in time for the birthday.

    This is a great model quite small but easy to make and doesn’t fall apart like some of them. There is a pod which releases too.

    Another sub, one must have minifig. Another review of an existing ship, the gungan sub. It has new bricks and is more accurate in some parts (in cockpits fits all three characters like in film, for example) by other are pretty ugly, like edges of the ship, being not continuous. The main value for this set is queen amidala, of course, but try get it with a discount because retail price is excessive.Other minifigs are good, with two-faced obi and qui-gon, but not spectacular. Another one, no improvement. If you don’t have previous sub, get this at least.
