Review: LEGO Star Wars 9491 Geonosian Cannon

by admin on February 15, 2012

Today we are taking a look at LEGO Star Wars set #9491, the Geonosian Cannon. Priced at $19.99, this is another set that feels like a battle pack with a few more pieces added in.

The contents of the box:

Clone Commander Gree. Nice green color, and nice to see more leg printing on the new 2012 minifigs:

The usual clone face:

Back printing:

Barriss Offee. As usual, I’m not going to bother with the cape (or even the Geonosian Wings) as I don’t plan to display these characters:

She doesn’t have a typically “flesh tone” head, it’s a lighter shade:

The Geonosians, zombie and warrior. The heads look to be made in China, they came in separate little baggies. Very nice printing. The older versions of this minifig were pretty rare, so nice to see these in a set again:

Love this color:

The retro gun on the left seems odd when compared to the typical Star Wars blaster:

It’s sort of comical, one is very cartoonish:

The cannon. A nice little set, lots of detail, very stable, and nice coloring:

Doesn’t seem like a fair match:

In all, a nice set. Good minifigs, a useful cannon, and a nice overall feel to the set. Easy to use this set with loads of other Clone Wars sets and have it fit right in.

      Worth the money. I think Target may have had it on sale for 25% off this past week.
