Today we are quickly interested in the content of the LEGO Star Wars set 75333 Obi-Wan Kenobi's Jedi Starfighter, a small box of 282 pieces which is currently in pre-order on the official online store at the public price of 34.99 € with an availability announced for August 1, 2022.
This is not the first version of Obi-Wan Kenobi's ship at LEGO, we had already had a first interpretation in 2002 in the set 7143 Jedi Starfighter, to a version with Hyperdrive in the set 75191 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperdrive marketed in 2017 and even to a model of the range Ultimate Collector Series with the set 10215 Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter marketed in 2010. Without forgetting the micro-things with that of the set of the range Planet Series 75006 Jedi Starfighter & Kamino marketed in 2013 and that of the set 4487 Jedi Starfighter & Slave I (2003) or the micro-thingy delivered with the LEGO Star Wars magazine in 2021.
This new version of 25 cm long by 13 cm wide is obviously a simple toy for the youngest, so the most demanding fans will find it difficult to find what they are looking for in terms of detail and finish. We get a central fuselage with a few layers of parts to give it a minimum of thickness, fixed wings with correctly managed angles, a bulging space that hides a storage niche for the body of the astromech droid when the dome is in place on the left wing of the ship, a basic cockpit but spacious enough to comfortably install Obi-Wan and two Stud Shooters new generation that can be easily removed if you plan to display this ship as a simple model. Ultimate refinement, this ship has the luxury of having a "retractable" front landing gear that allows it not to be slumped on the ground.
All this is very quickly assembled, knowing that the two wings are necessarily identical except for a few details and that the product is pleasant to build but does not offer breathtaking techniques of creativity. The cockpit's clear bubble isn't protected by the plastic recently seen on the windshields of a few vehicles in what's now called the adult ICONS range, LEGO hasn't decided to make the same effort to the smaller pieces delivered in sets intended for the youngest.
There is no escaping the traditional sheet of stickers with about fifteen stickers to apply so that Obi-Wan's ship benefits from a satisfactory level of detail. Did this children's toy need so many stickers? Nothing is less certain: with barely more than a hundred assembly steps, we stick a sticker every ten pages.
As for the figurines delivered in this box, we obtain Obi-Wan Kenobi, the astromech droid R4-P17 and the Kaminoan star of the product, Taun We. We remember the first appearance of this character in Episode II (Attack of the Clones), he ended his career shot dead by Fennec Shand in the ninth episode of the first season of the animated series The Bad Batch.
LEGO does it pretty well by representing this character with an atypical physique without making it an irrelevant figurine that would no longer really use the codes of the usual minifigs. The result seems to me to be a good compromise both on the interpretation of the appearance of the creature and its size. The present pad printings are more than up to what one could expect, Taun We's head is made of hard plastic and it is attached to the character's long neck.
Obi-Wan Kenobi's minifig is new from head to toe with very correct pad printing. No problem matching the color between the torso and the head of the character, LEGO dresses Obi-Wan close to the neck. the tunic is nicely represented and the manufacturer delivers a head of hair and a hood to be used according to the chosen face. The outfit, although less contrasted than on the official retouched visuals, is both in line with that seen on screen in Episode II and with that present in the video game. The Skywalker Saga. Everyone will be happy.
The astromech droid R4-P17, which we had lost sight of since 2016, returns here in a rather successful updated version even if LEGO does not give it a pad printing on both sides of the cylinder as was the case more early in the year for R2-D2 in sets 75330 Dagobah Jedi Training et 75339 Death Star Trash Compactor. It's a bit of a shame knowing that we have already had two fairly similar versions of this droid in the past and that this new box was an opportunity to innovate a little.
On arrival, I think that this Jedi Starfigher is not demerit with a toy that seems very correct to me considering the reduced inventory and three very successful figurines. The public price of the product is undoubtedly a little high, but Amazon and a few others will quickly take care of offering it to us at a more attractive price.
