More of a floating fortress than a simple pleasure cruiser, the LEGO Star Wars 6210 Jabba’s Sail Barge is a monster of a ship. Including the sail barge, a desert skiff, the Sarlacc pit and no less than seven LEGO Star Wars minifigures; Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, R2-D2, Lando Calrissian, Boba Fett and a Gamorrean guard. There is also the rare Jabba the Hutt minifigure.
All negotiations have failed and Luke Skywalker didn’t help things by killing Jabba’s Rancor. All rescue attempts are up: Luke sent the droids, who failed to appease Jabba, Leia sneaking in as a bounty hunter with the ‘captured’ Chewbacca. Nothing worked, and for Jabba, nothing in his palace could provide a painful enough death for the conspirators. It’s time to take a ride out to the Sarlacc!
The sail barge itself is 18 inches (46 cm) long, looking exactly like the movie vehicle. There’s even room inside to the Sail Barge to play, the doors open up to reveal more space and a holding cell and food center. The deck of the ship contains many rail mounted guns, but not too many of Jabba’s henchman to man them. The sails even function to catch the wind and provide shade from the twin suns of Tatooine. The Desert Skiff is a much smaller vehicle, using a stand to levitate. Capable of holding most of the minifigures in the set, the skiff is little more than a hovering platform to push people off into the Sarlacc pit. The Sarlacc pit is a nice addition to the set, allowing some place for falling minifigures to fall into. Reflecting the special edition version in the Return of the Jedi, the pit features the teeth and the beak-like maw is capable of snaking on an unlucky minifigures.
Han Solo is wearing his brown trousers and a plain white shirt, without his holster or spacer vest. His brown hair and smirk make the minifigure a perfect match for the character of Han Solo. Princess Leia appears in this set in her slave outfit, with a grim expression on her face and flesh colored skin as opposed to the older yellow skin. Luke Skywalker’s black jumpsuit is straight out of the movie, but his face is more stern and his skin more tan than most of the other figures’. The bounty hunter Boba Fett’s minifigure wears the traditional armor of the Mandalorian warriors, wearing the helmet piece that also includes the jet pack, this minifigure is a good reproduction of the Boba Fett character. The Gamorrean guard has a large headpiece with tusks and the figure even has armor. The arms are brown, however, which is something unique to this set. R2-D2 appears in his usual form, except that he has been outfitted with the serving tray seen in the movie. Lando Calrissian also appears in his disguise, the nasty coat, tan pants and the ornate helmet and vibro-axe. Jabba also appears in this set, that slimy slug.
An amazing 781 pieces, the LEGO 6210 Jabba's Sail Barge is a huge set that should not be undertaken lightly. The complex Sail Barge and the Desert Skiff both have lots of moving parts (walls than can open up, control veins that can move, moveable weapons, etc.) which make them very difficult to build. Recommended by the LEGO Company for builders age 8 to 12, this set will give inexperienced younger builders many problems. Experienced builders, however, should be able to handle the set without much problem, though it will take a long time to build. This set does have a lot of playability value and would look great in a LEGO Star Wars collectors’ collection! A great set for any LEGO Star Wars fan, just make sure you don’t tick off Jabba and get thrown into the Sarlacc yourself! May the force be with you!
