|Mos Espa Podrace|
8 - 12
7171 Mos Espa Podrace was released in 1999 as part of the LEGO Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace line. The set replicates the Podrace from that film, and includes three Podracers, three Pit Droids, Anakin Skywalker (Episode I), Gasgano, Jar Jar Binks, Padmé Naberrie, Qui-Gon Jinn, R2-D2 and Sebulba Minifigures.
- In order to increase the structural stability of the Podracer models, their design incorporates brick-built, sand-coloured booms that connect the Pods to the transparent parts of the energy couplings. These booms are not part of the actual Podracer vehicles within the Star Wars universe; they are a feature of the toy put there to hold the pods together. The sand color was chosen as it would blend with the Boonta Eve Classic's desert course.
- This set (as did many of its era) had some alternate models in the instruction booklet. They were speeders for Jar Jar Binks and Padme, a giant hovercraft, a small speeder bike, many small ships, a grandstand, two dropships, and a giant robot.
