"I bought this set just the day it was released. I unboxed it( it has 5 bags, a small sheet of stickers, and a fairly thick manual), and built it. The build was really fun, having about an equal amount of technic and normal building. When it was finished, I just couldn't stop admiring how good it looked. The only bad thing is that the AT AP has three seats, and only has two clone troopers."
"First off, I`m going to start by saying this is a great set. It has plenty of play ability for kids and plenty of display ability for collectors. It has four opening compartments, including a space for BB-8 and some luggage, a storage area for a gun and a couple of thermal detonators, the cockpit, and a space that has some storage for something small, but the instructions don`t say anything about what to do with it. For me the main play feature is the one where you can turn the engine in the back, and it will also turn the stud gun on the side. There are also two spring-loaded shooters hidden under the front that can be activated by a little wheel on he side. The minifigs are also awesome. BB-8 is just like all the other ones we`ve gotten before. Finn has a new leg print and I think a new torso print. Also he has new expressions on his face, which is double-sided. Rose is also really cool, she has great print, expressions, and hair piece.
Pros: Great play ability Great minifigures Fun build Great display ability Good fire-power
Cons: Missing a stormtrooper Could use an entrance ladder
Overall, this is a great set that I recommend to kids and collectors alike. I hope this review has been helpful."
