Imperial Troop Transport
" Since the release of this set I have probably purchased 6 or 7 because of how great of an army builder it is. It's great to be able to get 4 regular stormtroopers in a cheap set, and I wish Lego would do this more with other minifigures like regular clone troopers.
Minifigures:
In this set you get 4 of the same stormtrooper minifigure. These troopers look very nice and have good printing throughout the whole figure that accurately portraits the stormtroopers you see on Star Wars Rebels. Each trooper comes with a stud shooter blaster that can shoot a stud when the mechanism is pressed. I have always despised these blasters, as they just don't look very good or Star Wars accurate to me, but if you are buying for a younger person this probably won't make a difference.
The Imperial Troop Transport:
The set itself is very small compared to the Imperial Troop Transport we see in Star Wars Rebels. In the show this transport has cockpit that can fit atleast 4 people, a troop holding area that probably holds a dozen troopers, and prisoner holding cells on the exterior. However with this set there is no cockpit to put figures, no troop holding area inside, and the exterior prison areas are instead where your supposed to put the stormtroopers as they ride on the transport. The middle area is used to hold a crate with extra studs for the stud shooting blasters, and it easily slides in and out of the transport. I do like that the transport can actually hold all 4 stormtroopers, as most of the time with these battle packs you can only fit 1 or 2 figures in the actual set.
Price:
This set has the latest $12.99 price tag for battle pack type sets. This isn't that bad of a price considering this set contains 141 pieces.
Conclusion:
Overall this is a great set to get if you are looking to get a bunch of stormtroopers. As I stated in the beginning, I have purchased many of this set, allowing me to have quite a few stormtroopers. The troop transport isn't very accurate to the show, but is pretty well built for how small of a set this is. I do hope that sometime soon Lego decides to do a bigger version of the Imperial Troop Transport that is more accurate to what we see in Star Wars Rebels. I would definitely recommend this set if you are interested in Star Wars Rebels, or just looking for a cheap way to get stormtroopers.

Imperial Assault Hovertank
" I picked this set up at the Lego Store on Force Friday to get the Darth Revan Minifigure, and was glad I did. Having ordered all the other new Rogue One sets online, this was the first Rogue One set I got to build.
Minifigures:
For starters the minifigures for this set are very nice. The hovertank pilots look great and I'm glad to see new types of imperial troopers being introduced for this movie. The Chirrut Îmwe minifigure has very good printing and a unique waist cape. He also gets a couple unique weapons, a wooden looking staff that reminds me of Rey's in the Force Awakens sets and a bowcaster looking weapon that he can carry on his back.
The Hovertank:
The Imperial Assault Hovertank itself is a very good looking build that resembles what we've seen from the Rogue One trailers. The front of the hovertank has a cockpit that can open from the front panel and from a hatch on top of the hovertank. The inside of the cockpit is the only part of the set I found disappointing, as it only has spots for the figures to sit and no control panels or pieces of any kind. The hovertank has a turret build on each side that can move up and down and another turret in the front center that is stationary. The top of the hovertank has the hatch to access the cockpit and a place to hold a blaster rifle that a figure can man. The back of the hovertank has a cargo storage type area that has an orange supply container. The container can open up and contains a pair of binoculars and a blaster pistol. There is space to put another one of these containers in the back, so you could put another one if you buy multiples of this set. The bottom of the hovertank utilizes 4 clear wheels to move across surfaces, almost exactly like the First Order Snowspeeder from last year. Overall there is actually a lot of space on the tank that could hold more cargo or stormtroopers from other sets.
Price:
This set is one of those rare instances where you are getting a very good price per piece. 385 pieces for $30 is sadly uncommon these days with Lego upping the price of sets $10-$20 (including some of the new Rogue One sets). Overall I'm happily surprised this set is only $30 and not $40
Conclusion:
Overall this is a very well built vehicle that resembles what it's supposed to be very well. The minifigures are great, but in my opinion this set would have been perfect if it included a stormtrooper or rebel trooper. The tank is well built, with the exception of the cockpit, and has a lot of extra room for more figures or storage crates. This is a very well priced set and is a good set to buy if your looking at Rogue One sets.
