Watto's JunkyardThe junkyard itself isn't all that big its just wattos shop (without a roof ) and wattos counter that he hovers behind.It has some tools at the back (or front) and has other tools in a box on the counter. it also has some junk like the:
- Weird grey piecs
- Podracer cables
- Podracer energy Beams
- Mawhonics wrecked pod
Aldar Beedo's PodracerAldar Beedo's Podracer is Very Detailed with the 6 Airbrakes (that can be used in stopmotion), 2 air vents (1 on each engine) The red thing at the back of the cockpit and more... It also has room for Aldar Beedo in the cockpit and has 2 red thrusters on each engine.
Mawhonic's PodracerThe downside to this set is that you have to take apart the junkyard to build mawhonics podracer stand but you can buy parts to build another one form pick a brick on lego shop .Also mawhonic isn't included in the set, he could have been, he would be making a deal with watto to get his pod rebuilt, who knows he may be in the Character encyclopedia book or in a future podracer set.
The pod itself (when built) is very detailed, it has the flaps that move up and down when you turn (see Star Wars Episode 1 Racer and Star Wars Racer Revenge) it has a cockpit to fit a pilot (you could use watto) preferebly mawhonic but as you know he doesn't come with the set, but there are a few customs out there, check this one out: Lego Mawhonic. Mawhonic's Podracer also appears in the set Mos Espa Podrace.
