Star Wars LEGO V-19 Torrent Starfighter 7674

The V-19 Torrent  Starfighter 7674 is one LEGO set I love especially because of its fold up and down wings and one that drops down from behind.

This LEGO set was very well thought of as the way it looks. It really is one of those LEGO sets that they got darn close to the ones in the 2-D Clone Wars micro-series. And as far as size, it is one of those models that is just right.

Mainly made of red and white LEGO bricks and with the Republic insignia on its wing, it makes for a great showpiece for you collection.

Here is Star Wars LEGO video of one of them now..

How was that? want one yet?

Features and Gears

Loved the way the wings fold…Yeah, I said that above but, it is what makes the Star Wars LEGO V-19 Torrent Starfighter 7674 and awesome LEGO set.

This set has gears!! hidden inside is gears. If you are like me any LEGO with gears is always a blast. My All Terrain Armored Transport 10178 had a ton of gears as well.

Before I go into the rest, I have to mention something about vadersnewempire.com

I was going to try to throw some type of LEGO games on this website but it never panned out. On the LEGO website, they have a game where you need to move the gears so they can operate a door to go into the next level. Very addictive!

Sorry got a little sidetracked… Ok the gears in the V-19 torrent Starfighter 7674 are as I mentioned, hidden beneath the way awesome looking top of the set with the sliding canopy.

There are no knobs to turn on this LEGO set or any type of cranks but, when you lift up or down on the back wing, the other side wings rise up as well. All with the help of just a few gears and some very fancy yet helpful “plungers” or at least that is what I call them. They look like thisPart No: 32181c03  Name: Technic, Shock Absorber 10L Damped, Complete Assembly NO Spring

Those “shock absorbers” give it a very smooth opening and closing of the wings which is important only so the wings do not flop down.

Not only does the wings go up and down but so do the landing gear! Oh yea, I almost forgot to mention…they are attached to the same gears as the wings!

Which is the ultimate only because when the wings fold down the gear go up and in reverse when the wings go up. In my book, that is very cool!!

All a LEGO set has to do is move or geared as to move, makes it a seller for me. How about you? Well if you are still reading this then yes, I will have to say you do too. 😀

Minifigs

  • 1 Clone Trooper|Clone Specialist

Sorry the list is small this go around but hey, at least it has one. A few of my sets are the big stand alone types and are not included in the LEGO set so, any minifig is a good minifig.

I always have pictures and if I didn’t well…Wait a second!, I always have pictures and here are a few of them below of the V-19 Torrent Starfighter 7674 LEGO set.

And as always, I try to give the most detail when taking these pictures!

Hey, pssst….Did anyone see the last two pictures?? What do you see? You are looking at my next review which is the Slave 1 set 6209 which appeared in 2006. Kinda neat how just one other set in the picture leads into another review.

I did not plan it that way but, love the way that has been working for me.

As for the V-19 Torrent  Starfighter 7674, some of its features like the 2 flick fire missiles and its retractable landing gear along with the folding wings gives this LEGO set tons of playability.

Thank you for taking the time to read this review of the Star Wars LEGO V-19 Torrent Starfighter 7674.
