Lego 7119: Twin Pod Cloud Car

I remember this Lego Star Wars Twin Pod Cloud Car being one of the first Lego sets I bought back in 2002.  It was all I could afford back then, maybe it was $10?  Anyways, it got me addicted to the Star Wars line and over the years I bought quite a few more Lego Star Wars sets.

This one was a pretty simplistic build and after I was done, I recall being not too impressed with the fact that the windshields were rather crude.  Also the engine compartment, despite having an opening door was pretty bland.

Here's the front of the vehicle.  I took it apart not too long after I built it, and this has been the first time I have put it back together again, albeit maybe with some different colored pieces.

The rear view is pretty meh also.

The side view reminds me of a boat and doesn't have the graceful curves of the cloud car depicted in the star wars movie.

You only got one Lobot mini figure with the set.  I wished that there was an extra one.  Above you can see the cockpit door opened up to reveal the mini figure.  I added a lever for controls.

The top two shots show the engine compartment.  I added some minor detailing so it wouldn't look so blah.  The following pics show Lobot in more detail.

Thanks for looking!
