The Review

Released in 2007, this was the second Naboo Starfighter that LEGO made (not including the UCS version), and it’s better than the original in just about every way.

Appearance-wise, the Vulture Droid is almost identical to the one found in the Jedi Starfighter & Vulture Droid set. The wings (or legs, depending on position) toggle between walking and flying modes. There aren’t any fancy opening mechanisms here, so you’ll just have to use your hands to move the wings. The Battle Droid also has a flick to fire missile on one side.

This is a surprisingly big ship, given both the piece count (280) and price ($30). The color scheme is nice, and there are some nice details in the molded parts. There are a few stickers, but they are small and easy to apply.The ship is solid overall, though the ‘antenna’ on the nose and wings can fall off pretty easily.

The model also has a missile launcher and a droid drop mechanism, so you can send R2-D2 plunging to his doom any time you want. Playability-wise, the biggest disappointment is the cockpit. It doesn’t open very well, and the only details inside the cockpit are stickers.

This set comes with three minifigures: R2-D2, Anakin Skywalker, and a Naboo Fighter Pilot.

Assembly

Both the parts are pretty simple models to build. At 280 pieces, it will probably take the average builder a little over an hour to put it together.

Conclusion

The Naboo N-1 Starfighter with Vulture Droid is a nice LEGO Star Wars set that gives you a lot of value for your dollar. Both of the sets are well-made, include some nice playability features, and are perfect for swooshing around the house.
