Lego 7121 - Naboo Swamp

This is just a simple set containing 81 pieces. Even though it was based on the worst Star Wars movie of the lot (The Phantom Menace) and doesn't come with a lot of pieces, there are still some noteworthy bits going for it:

Firstly, it comes with 2 Single Trooper Aerial Platforms (STAPs) with 2 battle droids. These were the early days when the battle droid minifigures came with the 1x2 backplate, which they don't anymore with the new Lego Star Wars sets. I also love the transparent stands for the STAPs, though the newer STAP designs from Lego improve these early releases by leaps and bounds.

I've never had a clam brick before and frankly, I am quite impressed with the vines.

Best bit would be the Qui-Gon Jinn and Jar Jar Binks minifigures. Say what you want about those characters, but they are relatively rare in appearances within Lego sets.
