Got this set for my birthday a few weeks ago, and just now got around to putting it together! It's way cool, but I'm wondering what a few of the extra little pieces are in one of the clear packets; there are two little grey blasters, two antennae for Boba's helmet (one's an extra, I suppose), and I'm trying to figure out what the rest are. Two look like the heads of a missile, but nave a nub on them similar to the antennae and can fit onto Boba's helmet, but I'm not sure what they are really supposed to be. Another looks like a grey visor that can snap onto the helmet using both holes on either side, but again I'm not sure what its purpose is. Then there's a square-ish bit that seems to be possibly for putting between a lego-dude torso and the legs (or at least that's the only thing I can think of for it), and another that can fit onto a lego-dude's shoulders. I'm really puzzled what they're for; they're even pictured in the booklet but there's no explanation for them, nor is there anything about them besides the small diagram that acknowledges their existence.
Any help? I can take a picture if necessary, but I'm sure anyone who'd know, probably knows what I'm talking about anyway.

- Hi, these packets are usually in a set when one of the special pieces like the antenna is needed, I don't really know why they include them all, but it's nice to have extras of them :) To answer your questions, most of these accessories are for Clone Troopers- the missile looking things are floodlights which can go on Boba's helmet like the antenna, but they're meant for clones, as is the visor (it's just a visor, and it takes up both holes in the helmet). The square piece does go through the legs, it's called a kama, and the shoulder piece is a pauldron (again for clones). Most of the accessories you can see on the Captain Rex minifigure (reference pic of what Rex looks like in the TV series). Hope that helps, NightblazeSaber 06:05, December 19, 2011 (UTC)
- Cool, thank you! Kind of silly they include all that stuff, but I do have the mandalorians set too so I'll use it for them! Cheers! Thedigitalnomad 14:51, December 21, 2011 (UTC)
