BrickWars Sets Description

Lego 7959 Geonosian Starfighter, also known as a Nantex-class territorial defense starfighter, was a ship manufactured by the Huppla Pasa Tisc Shipwrights Collective. It was designed particularly for the Geonosians, as humans and other species could not handle the forces exerted on the body in piloting the starfighter. Pilots from the pilot caste in the Geonosian society would be paired at an early age with a starfighter, ensuring a sort of bond between the two. This would enhance the pilot's operating skills and reaction time in combat. The starfighter was armed with one laser cannon turret and a warhead launcher. Strands of laminasteel, a metallic substance, were used to armor the ship. They were also used to construct Geonosian hives. Although the material was light, it would harden after being molded onto the frame of a starfighter. It could take relatively forceful impacts, and the lightweight aspect of the material made the ship as a whole more aerodynamic. In battle, they were swift starfighters with high evasion, something the Geonosians used to their advantage against invaders or other enemies.

 

The Lego 7959 Geonosian Starfighter contains 155 pieces and includes 3 minifigures.

Posted September 6, 2011 by CParisho, United States

Pro's:
- A good update to a ship first released in 2003.
- Better design than the 2003 version.
- Includes an updated version of the Geonosian mini-figure.

Con's:
- Price is not in line with what one would expect for the size of the set.
- Geonosian mini-figure doesn't have wings as one of the Geonosian mini-figures did in the 2003 set.

The biggest problem of this set is its price. It's MSRP $10 more than the 2003 set but 14 less pieces and works out to be $0.19 per brick (the 2003 set was $0.12 per brick). I got lucky and found it on sale for $4.50 less than MSRP, but even at that price I paid $0.16 per brick which is still way too much.

The MSRP pricing problem this year is really evident with this set when compared to others. The 7956 Ewok Attack has 11 more pieces and is $5 cheaper than this set. The 7957 Sith Nightspeeder has 59 more pieces and is $5 cheaper. All of them are over priced, but this one is even more over priced than the others.

The Geonosian mini-figure doesn't have wings or a gun. The Commander Cody Clone Trooper came with a set of Clone accessories, some of which are not used so there is no reason why the Geonosian mini-figure doesn't have wings and a gun for use when it is outside the ship.

Overall I give this set a 6 of 10. Most of that is due to price. If it sold for the same price as the 2003 set then it would be an 8 or 9. Having a couple accessories (wings and weapon) for the Geonosian mini-figure would help too, but not at the MSRP.
