LEGO Hailfire Droid & Spider Droid, (7670)

The Clone Wars continue to wage on with LEGO’s newest Star Wars set the Hailfire Droid and Spider Droid. This low priced set will easily help you expand on your Separatist Army with additional Battle Droids and Super Battle Droid.

This is the first Hailfire Droid in the regular Star Wars line. The only other LEGO Hailfire Droid being the Technic version, which was obviously far larger and detailed. The Hailfire Droid moves on two moveable wheels covered with forty chain link pieces. On either side of the tank are missle launchers that hold four missles each. With a flick on the end they launch pretty far. Both the wheels and missle launchers extend and retract along with folding armor shields. The Spider Droid has four movable legs that provide 20 points of articulation. The canon moves up and down for different degrees of fire.


The scale of the Hailfire Droid and Spider Droid is way off from the film. The few times you see the droids during the Genosis battle they appear to be very large. I would call these more mini versions of the droids. This is not a surprise as most LEGO sets are never really to scale. It just seems these are drastically off.

I also found that the Spider Droids legs are very akward. I had a very difficult time posing the droid. Keeping the body up with the legs is very agrivating. However you can’t beat the cheap price of $20. You also get two battle droids (including for the first time the Droid Commander) and a Super Battle Droid make the set well worth it

You can buy this set along with other LEGO sets at the LEGO Shop
