    Post LEGO Star Wars: The 1999 Years

    According to my favourite LEGO data source, Bricklink, there were 14 sets released in the first year of the license and I'd like to do a community feature on which are the top 5 favourites of Rebelscum's forum members.

    Could you use the poll to pick your #1 and share why you selected them in this thread? I'll collate the five most frequently selected sets and write a front page article \featuring your comments.

    Incidentally, the first LEGO "in-hand" story posted on Rebelscum was on February 14th, 1999!

    To kick this off, my pick is 7171 Mos Espa Pod Race.

    Even though the Classic sets had come out a few months before these Episode 1 sets were released at the inaugural Midnight Madness, it is this set that captured my attention the most.

    The expectation that The Phantom Menace was going to be an amazing adventure was still in the air, and the scenes from the trailers that showed the pod race depicted a new aspect of the Star Wars universe. The sets that LEGO produced were among the first toys we'd seen for this new movie and it showed what the new toy license was cabable of, more so than the previous Classic sets.

    I still have very strong memories of getting back from the Toys "R" Us in Bedford (UK) at some ungodly hour and opening all the action figures, applying stickers to the various spaceships and what not - and building all the LEGO sets I'd bought that night. It was a long night and the vibrant colours of the pod racers helped to keep me going.

    Ultimately I was let down by The Phantom Menace, but the noises and imagery of the pod race scenes still make me smile.

    That year I got Landspeeder, Snowspeeder, Sith Infiltrator, Naboo Fighter, and Gungan Sub.

    The Gungan Sub is my absolutely favorite. Love the colors and minifigures. Next the Naboo Fighter, to this day it is the only version of the ship I have.

    I have been a prequel fan since the first time I saw The Phantom Menace. It was wonderful year.

    Mine is 7101 Lightsaber Duel.

    The reasoning is purely nostalgic. This was the first Lego SW set that I had ever purchased. At the time, I used saved allowance money to get the set. The pricing was just right and was the best option for me to get one of my still to this day favorite SW characters, Darth Maul. That same year I was also Darth Maul for Halloween!

    While the other sets are great, this one still has that special place in my memory and collection.

    So, I should perhaps be prevented from voting in this poll, but I voted all the same. I never owned any of these sets, as I was firmly in my dark age in 1999, and never bought a Star Wars Lego set until at least 2005. But of these sets listed, I do believe my top choice is Lightsaber Duel, simply because it captures one of my favorite parts of the movie. I enjoyed all the lightsaber battles in TPM, and if they had made a Duel of the Fates set in 1999, that would certainly win my vote. So I choose 7101, and the Sith Infiltrator would be my second favorite.

    I voted for the X-wing. Got it for $10 at a car boot sale in about 2001. I liked that the instructions showed alternate builds that you could make

    I had all of them but the droid developer set then sold them all about 5 years ago.

    For me, it has to be the original X-Wing. It was the first Lego Star Wars set I ever laid eyes on.

    That's a great set as well -- and one of a few that hasn't been remade in the last 20 years!
