This iteration of the Slave I measures 45 cm (17 inches) long, 20 cm (7 inches) tall, and 37 cm (14 inches) wide. It consists of 1996 pieces. The set includes redesigned minifigures of Boba Fett and Han Solo, a new Bespin Guard minifigure, and a Stormtrooper.
Similar to many past iterations of the Slave 1, the model includes a redesigned compartment for the Han Solo in Carbonite piece, position-able laser cannons, a redesigned control area, hidden missile launchers and laser cannons, and redesigned wings.
The Slave I was a prototype of the Firespray-31-class Patrol and Attack Craft, heavily modified by Boba Fett and his father Jango Fett. Both of the Fetts customised it with strong and advanced weapons systems. Soon after the ship was acquired by Boba, he took it to Kuat Drive Yards to have it modified again to fit his personal styles and needs. He added an ion cannon, concussion missile launcher, tractor beam projector, sensor mask, and jamming array. Boba Fett used the ship to track Han Solo to Bespin to capture him and return him to Jabba the Hutt to collect his bounty. The ship had also been active under both Hondo Ohnaka and Boba Fett during the Clone Wars.
Quote from LEGO.com
- On the information sticker on the initial release, "tractor" is misspelled "tracor". This has since been corrected.
- This was the first true minifigure-scale version of the Slave I; all prior versions were smaller than minifigure-scale.
- Both the Bespin Guard and Boba Fett minifigures are exclusive to the set. Boba Fett has arm and leg printing along with a new face print.
