Image Bank: Mos Espa Arena (Discover The Force)

By Mike — Monday, January 30, 2012

This set as a whole is not bad. The not fully assembled Episode I C-3PO, while lacking the 14 points of articulation we see as standard today, is as solidly sculpted and painted now as it was back in 1999. The only drawback is that he can't hold the included Anakin Podracer flag as he should be able to. The Power of the Jedi Sebulba (Boonta Eve Challenge) sculpt is good enough and Anakin Skywalker, from 2000's POTJ "mechanic" figure, is marginal for what he is due to the limited articulation. This Anakin mold is also used for the Target 2 Pack exclusive, with the "dirtier" variation for this Battle Pack. 

You'll want to buy Mos Espa Arena if you are in need of pilots for your recently purchased Class II Podracers as well as for the extra Pit Droids and the nifty vinyl Podracer flags that are included.
