- This set includes the some of the first Star Wars figures with printing on the minifigures "feet" along with the Bomb Squad Trooper and ARC Trooper.
- It is a re-design of 7106 Droid Escape released in 2001, 11 years before the release of 9490 Droid Escape.
- The Sandtroopers have black heads with printed faces, much like Jango Fett.
- This is the first set that features C-3PO with a printed headpiece.
- There was a comic in the set. In the instructions booklet version, it still uses an old design of R2-D2 and only Sandtroopers used orange pauldrons and blasters. Also in the online comics, R2-D2 has a redesigned head while C-3PO coloured armor is metalic gold and the Sandtroopers have a beacon to contact Darth Vader
