Our TOP 5 Lego Star Wars Sets 2009
“Packed with Nice Play Features!”
Our Rating: 4
First up on your list of the 5 best Lego Star Wars sets 2009 has to offer is the AAT.
This vehicle featured prominently in the prequel trilogy and, more recently, in series like Rebels and the Clone Wars.
As such, it’s gained much popularity.
Fans of Lego Star Wars 2009 releases find this particular Lego set as one of the gems that they can add to their collection.
It is basically an armored assault tank.
Not Too Big
At 407 pieces, the AAT is a small to mid-range size Lego Star Wars 2009 set.
And the overall Lego minifigure count here is not unlike the ones you see on today’s offerings from the company.
But let’s get this out of the way right now: this thing costs a pretty penny if you’re planning on getting this AAT to add to your collection.
It has a price that’s more than triple than what it originally sold for.
Still, this is one of those nice Lego Star Wars sets 2009 releases that both serious collectors and kids can appreciate.
So let’s have a closer look at what this thing has to offer.
For the Galactic Republic
First off, you get a total of 7 Lego minifigure characters here.
It includes three advanced battle droid figures; a couple of standard battle droid figures; a Lego Clone Trooper; and Yoda.
On the plus side, the total minifigure count included in this list is pretty much similar to what we see in Lego Star Wars battle packs.
So, this is a great option if you’re building a Lego brick army to reenact scenes from the movies and the TV shows.
Minifigures Not Exclusive
On the downside, the minifigures here aren’t really exclusive to this set anymore.
In fact, even the AAT isn’t exclusively a Lego Star Wars 2009 release these days.
That’s because it’s been rereleased last year with just a couple of difference in minifigure selection.
By that, we mean you can find the same minifigs in other more affordable sets these days.
So you’re really not missing anything here if you’re just after the Lego minifigs.
Pricey but Worth It
However, we’d be lying if we told you that these minifigs aren’t nice, because they are.
It’s just that you can get them from other sets that won’t break the bank.
For the Lego Republic!
Now, the AAT is the main draw of this set, and it’s a more than decent build at 407 pieces.
Like we said, both kids and adults can appreciate how balanced and enjoyable the Lego parts and building instructions on this thing are.
It only requires you an hour or so to fully build.
There aren’t any stud or missile shooters here, though, which would have been nicer had the designers added that play feature.
Because as it stands, the main functions on this AAT from the Lego Star Wars sets 2009 offerings arenice.
It includes a rotating cannon; a compartment hatch that’s able to accommodate a minifigure; and a detachable speeder.
With the number of play features already here, though, you’re not really missing anything substantial with the lack of a missile shooter.
Buy it at SRP
All in all, this is a great set to have at SRP.
Buying it at a premium—as Lego Star Wars 2009 releases tend to be— is only ideal if you’re a hardcore completist.
“Accurate Details in Lego Brick!”
Our Rating: 4
Ah, the midi scale Star Wars starfighters: how we’ve missed you!
And that’s one of the reasons why we’ve included this midi Millennium Falcon on our list of the best Lego Star Wars sets 2009 had given the world.
Another reason is that this is probably the best midi scale to have ever come out of the Star Wars line in a long time—perhaps ever.
Such as Shame
It’s such a shame that Lego has instead gone a different route when providing you fans and collectors with downsized versions of SW’s iconic vehicles.
That’s because we here at Shrunk Collectibles think they’re just simply amazing.
But hey, only time will tell if the company decides to go back to re-releasing their midi scale Star Destroyer and Millennium Falcon.
Until then, the only option is getting them as Lego Star Wars sets 2009 releases—and they don’t come cheap, by the way.
Mid-Sized Rebel Fighter
Simply put, the midi size Millennium Falcon is a cross between the full-size Lego set of the same starfighter and today’s microfighter versions of SW vehicles.
With this being no exception, you’re getting a lot of detail on the exterior of the MF.
It is pretty much almost exactly the same—if not better—than the details you see on the full-size one.
More of a Display Piece
However, much like Lego’s microfighter releases, you can’t open this up and convert it into a playset; it’s more of a display piece, really.
In its defense, though, this midi scale set doesn’t look as basic and rudimentary as all those microfighter releases that we have today.
The details here are simply amazing.
It’s just too bad that this doesn’t include even a single minifigure of Han or Chewie, which would have made this set even better.
That’s something the microfighter line has over these midi scale fighters, but it’s definitely no deal breaker if you’re planning on getting this nicely detailed miniature.
A Fun Build
At 356 pieces, this is a relatively small set, but no so small that you get a boring and overly simplistic build.
Most of the Lego parts that you’re getting here are small studs and plates that make up the detailing work on the MF.
So, this particular Lego set is able to provide you with a nicely challenging construction project that will take you under an hour to complete.
Once you’re done, you’re getting a very accurate miniaturized version of the iconic starship, right from the satellite dish down to the cannons.
The only flaw that you’re going to find here is that it requires some sticker applications.
That is never a fun thing to do when you just want to have fun with Lego brick construction.
So, barring its ridiculous price tag these days, the midi scale MF is probably one of the best Lego Star Wars sets 2009 has to offer.
More than that, it’s also one of the best SW Legos to have ever been released.
“A Great Polybagged Starfighter Option”
Our Rating: 4.5
Now, if you’re looking for something basicthen this Lego Star Wars sets 2009 polybag will hit just the right spot for you.
It’s something to just tide you over until the next Venator or Lego Republic Cruiser comes out.
This is the General Grievous Starfighter polybag version, and it’s one of the nicest polybags to have ever come out of the Lego Star Wars 2009 line.
Of course, as you’d expect from one of Lego’s polybag releases, this is a very rudimentary build, but by no means does it suck.
That’s because aside from the nice piece count that amounts to 44 pieces, you’re also getting a pretty nice micro model of the iconic SW villain here.
So much so, that this starfighter is reminiscent of old school Lego Star Wars releases from the early 2000s.
Back when the company didn’t have many pieces to offer their fans and came up with less detailed versions of SW fighters.
You Get What You See
As with most other polybag releases out there, you’re not getting any play features on this thing.
It’s meant to be a display piece that’s not unlike what you do with Hot Wheels.
Suffice it to say that a Star Destroyer, this is not: what you see on the polybag’s product photo is exactly what you get.
On the plus side, you can still get this at a decent price without breaking the bank.
Although, to be honest, it’s still sort of expensive, since polybags come free with purchases at the Lego store.
Best Polybag You Can Get
The main draw here is how you’re getting a relatively detailed set for what it is.
AND the fact that the piece count is great if you’re looking for Lego elements to do your MOCs and MODs.
Compared to other polybags from the SW line, though, this one is an absolute banger, regardless of which year you’re talking about.
So, yeah, we here at Shrunk Collectibles are more than confident to say that you’re definitely going to love this polybag if you’re into miniature Lego set pieces.
“A Decently Priced Battle Pack”
Our Rating: 5
We’re not entirely sure, but we think we’re just months away from Lego’s SW battle packs from being completely wiped off the shelves.
It’s such a shame, considering that these battle packs are pretty much the only relatively affordable method of army building when it comes to Lego minifigure releases.
Regardless, that doesn’t take away from the fact that this assassin droids battle pack is one of the best options you can go for.
Especially if you want a Galactic Republic v Trade Federation scene reenactment.
Made of 94 Pieces
At 94 pieces, too, this is right in line with most other battle packs where the highlight of the whole set isn’t the vehicle but the figures themselves.
In this case, the additional vehicle is that of a nice droid speeder that comes with a couple of stud shooters.
And, in total, you’re getting a nicely sized vehicle here, too, because it’s around 2 inches tall and 8 inches long.
It’s something that you don’t usually expect from Lego’s SW battle pack vehicles.
Assassin Droids All the Way
In this battle pack, you’re getting a total of 5 minifigures: all of them are assassin droid minifigures, too.
And this is pretty much unusual for a Star Wars battle pack, since most of these sets include minifigures from two groups or factions within the SW universe.
For example, say, a Lego Republic v Trade federation pack full of droids and soldiers.
In this case, though, the company decided to stick with a purely droid-filled package, and that’s not a bad thing.
Especially when you’re trying to build yourself a Lego droid army, a pack like this comes in handy and is probably one of your best options.
In fact, it’s your only option these days if you want to get a pack full of assassin droids.
That’s because the company has yet to re-release this rather nifty set.
Don’t fret, though, because even though the price on this set comes with a premium these days, it doesn’t break your wallet too much.
Variety and Speeders
It’s nice that the designers added a droid speeder in this battle pack.
And it’s even sweeter to find out that the speeder has a couple of stud shooters in it.
Although to be completely fair, the overall design on the speeder looks very rudimentary.
You won’t be entirely mistaken to assume that this might have been a release from the early days of the Lego Star Wars line.
Multiple Color Schemes
However, you’re going to love how the designers went with some variety for the assassin droid figures in this set.
Instead of sticking to one color scheme, they included a couple: black and silver, respectively.
The silver ones are, to be specific, “elite” assassin droids if you’re talking about in-universe characters, while the black ones are your regular assassin droid figures.
So, is this set worth buying? Definitely.
You don’t usually have battle packs like this these days.
This is a perfect set if you want to pad up that clone army you’re making at home!
“An Underrated Star Wars Vehicle”
Our Rating: 4.5
Last up on our list of the best Lego Star Wars sets 2009 releases is the Corporate Alliance Tank.
It’s one of the more underrated SW vehicles out there regardless of era.
In all honesty, we here at Shrunk Collectibles don’t even recall seeing this on the show.
But you’re going to like this thing anyway if only for the design features seen here.
At 216 pieces, this is a small set that’s almost like a battle pack, too: especially when you consider that it comes with 4 minifigures.
That’s pretty surprising, really, since sets of this size mostly tend to have around 3 Lego minifigure pieces included with them.
But here we are: a nice, albeit unpopular, SW vehicle with a few minifigs to boot.
Nice Figures and Features
The CAT itself is an overall fun SW ground vehicle that’s packed with a lot of play features that fans and collectors are definitely going to appreciate.
Here, you’re getting a couple of stud shooters, and working tracks made of fairly durable and flexible material.
There’s also a feature that allows you to catapult clone trooper figures from it.
It’s pretty nicely sized, too, standing at around 3 inches high and around 6 and a half inches long.
The minifigures you’re getting here are: a couple of regular battle droids and a couple of Lego Clone Trooper figures.
The best part about the figs? The Lego Clone Trooper isn’t just your regular Clone War foot soldier; they’re actually jet troopers!
Lego Star Wars Sets 2009 Verdict
You may be looking for Lego minifigure pieces like the Lego Clone Pilot to beef up your Clone War army.
Or you may want a decent vehicle based on the Galactic Republic.
Whatever your needs, you can’t go wrong with the options you see here.
Admittedly, you can’t get any of these at SRP these days.
But if you’re willing to spend a premium on these sets, then you’re definitely in for a treat.
Prepare for a Blast
So, get in that starfighter and prepare for a good old star war.
Because these Lego Star Wars sets 2009 releases are some of the best retired Lego set options you can get today!
