Star Wars is a major licensed theme for LEGO. Many sets and minifigures are produced and released every year. Sometimes, LEGO releases a new updated model of a past set.
The Gungan Sub 7161 was first released in 1999. After more than 10 years, LEGO has released a new Gungan Sub for fans who are unable to buy the long discontinued model. This new set is the Gungan Sub 9499.
The new Gungan Sub 9499 is a leap forward compared to the older model. The ship is now more curvy and the included minifigures are fantastic.
Queen Amidala minifigure is found only in this set. The molded hair pieces is intricate and the printing is fine and detailed.
Due to the above reasons, this set will rank high on the wanted list of Star Wars LEGO fans and minifigure collectors.
