Star Wars LEGO Emperor Palpatines Shuttle 8096

The Star Wars LEGO Emperor Palpatines Shuttle set 8096 is packed with all types of ways to play…

The scene where Anakin transforms into the Darth Vader, after the lava stream fight with Obi-Wan Kenobi.

This and other many trinkets are inside this Sith Lord shuttle all while packed into a wonderfully awesome looking LEGO set.

What I like about this set is the many wonderful options you have. Everything from-

  • Cockpit with see through window
  • Poseable wings that go up and down
  • Top lifts off to reveal many play options

Let’s explore some of these options

I have to start off with the top that opens to reveal what is inside of Star Wars LEGO Emperor Palpatine’s Shuttle set 8096. I did say there were many trinkets inside for playability.

If you are a child then all you would want to play out the scene in the awesome movie “Revenge of the Sith” is inside of this shuttle.

Everything from the table where Anakin Skywalker get’s fitted with his new legs, arm and breathing apparatus.

Set 8096 also has a slide so you can recreate the part where his helmet goes on and takes his first breath from behind his new mask.

LEGO set 8096 had a very sturdy top with the blade like top wing that easily clips onto the body of the shuttle with two swing down axle pins (at least that is what they look like).

I might not have the correct terms for everything but the way I describe things, any one can figure out what I’m trying to describe.

This set also has some retractable landing skids that fold up under the set when in flight, two of them…one on each side, naturally :-)

Emperor Palpatine’s Shuttle also has fold up wings that are done so manually and not crank style which is just fine by me as I love when I get to hands on pose my sets.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the gears and motors but, to pose it yourself just that spot only “hands on” can achieve, well…you get my point.

The set 8096 is mostly gray and white with a hint of the wonderful crimson color the side where the front guns are to the goldish color from where I imagine the engines would be.

Minifigs
  • Emperor Palpatine|Dark Dictator
  • Clone Pilot|Fearless Flier
  • Anakin Skywalker|Fallen Jedi
  • 2-1B|Surgical Droid

The 2-1B Surgical Droid in this set 8096 was dark gray with a bionicle attachment arm.

Aside from the other 2-1B Surgical Droid which came from set 7879 (sorry don’t have that set) was blueish with some gray.

Anakin Skywalker with the burnt clothing and his only human arm being flesh color.

The rest of him being the Evil Lord Vader black color with the grimace on his face from the torment.

I had taken as many close up shots as I could as there were many steps to Emperor Palpatines Shuttle set 8096.

In fact the set includes 2 instruction manuals for the set. It is not a very large set as you would expect with 2 books but still has a ton to offer as far as playability is concerned.

Thank you for taking the time to read this short review of Star Wars LEGO Emperor Palpatines Shuttle set 8096.

Be on the lookout for my next review… Star Wars LEGO Trade Federation Multi-Troop Transport 7662 and as always…
