" A nice little set and just right for the £17.99 price in my opinion. The escape pod build is good and for a younger LEGO fan it has loads of play value, the dewback is very good and again has lots to offer, play wise, to the age range the set is aimed at.
Mini figures really make this set great, R2 and C3PO are great, the printing on the figures is very detailed. The Sandtrooper (those poor stormtroopers forever patrolling the Tattooine Badlands) is very good and has already been mentioned for the dual moulded helmet. One slight issue with the Sandtrooper helmet is the when placed next to the Mos Eisley Cantina Sandtrooper the (dual moulded) helmet is rather bulky.
Other than the small point about the new stormtrooper helmet this set is very, very good.
To be honest I purchased this for the minifigures and the dewback to go with the Mos Eisley Cantina, Luke's Landspeeder and some Jawas in a Mos Eisley diorama.

A wretched hive of scum and villainy!
" Haven't had the chance to own the previous versions of the cantina and from what I've read this is a slightly poorer version with less to offer. That said I've found this one a lot of fun to build and it has mini figures that are pretty unique and this alone encouraged me to buy it before it is retired.
The build was fairly easy and I love the way the seats can be tilted in the booth where Greedo confronts Han, makes you wonder if Han shot first or just fell off his chair and Greedo missed!
The mini figures are all well detailed and make this set worth buying for them alone. The Ubrikkian 9000 is a nice addition to this set and is seen in a couple of shots from the remastered episode 4
I'm a collector and like to display the sets rather than play with them. This set is going to be displayed with Luke's speeder, the Jawa battle pack and a few other mini figures seen at Mos Eisley. Just need to get a few more Sandtroopers. "

One of the best yet!
" I have the First Order TIE and had the old Imperial TIE fighter (9492) but this is definitely the best TIE fighter yet. The construction is similar to the old (9492) TIE as far as the superstructure goes but the cockpit has really good greebling and detail. The wings are so much better than the old TIE and even the First Order TIE. Lighter but more robust the whole thing is very swishable and has playability in spades.
Mini figures make this set exclusive and really well detailed, the Mimban Stormtrooper is my favourite and I hope more appear in the future.
A very good redesign of the TIE/In space superiority starfighter from LEGO and quite rightly the best one yet. "

A bit different to Anakin's Interceptor?
" Got this because I owned Anakin's ship and wanted to pair them up for display but when I put it together I noticed several differences between the two with Obi-Wan's being the inferior product. Surely they should have been identical apart from the colour scheme?
Anyway, I managed to find a MOC of the interceptor online which I purchased as a stop gap. Spurred on to make this an identical ship I took both apart and then used Anakin's build instructions to make an exact duplicate for Obi-Wan.

Anakin's Interceptor
" Writing this some time after it was retired but felt it warranted a review. It was one of probably the first three SW sets I bought when I got back into LEGO. It's a great set and spurred me onto purchase Obi-Wan's interceptor when that was released. "

Use your towcables, go for the legs.
" Writing this long after the set was retired but I have to say that it is a very good representation of the T-47 airspeeder and scaled very well when placed alongside the AT-AT.
Minifigures are just right for the set with Luke Skywalker, Dak and the snowtrooper with heavy blaster.
A good set and at a fair price point although I'd have liked an extra snowtrooper for the price. "

Stop those speeders! Really
" Not a bad battle pack and at a reasonable price. The new trooper figures are great and you can always use two new Imperial officers so the mini figures are bang on for this set. The bike build is good and not really a challenge, the scale is good and the set goes well with Han's speeder. No stickers which is great but the flickfire blasters are not my favourite, I'd prefer LEGO to add the standard plastic blasters as an optional extra to give the purchaser the choice. Other than that it has playability and is at a reasonable price point in my opinion.
Looking forward to the new sets. "

Republic V-Wing
" Simple set with minimal mini figures which I picked up for a slightly cheaper price than the RRP.
Good set with an easy build and two good figures.
Not much more to say really, as far as the SW universe goes the only time you see these are escorting the transport carrying the badly injured Anakin Skywalker to the facility that turns him into Darth Vader. "

She's got what it takes kid!
" Keeping this one short because, for the price, this set is pretty good.
1. The build keeps you guessing right until the last brick. No repetition. No stickers and some interesting build techniques to give an equally interesting finished article.
2. Mini figures are great and very well detailed, the set is easily worth it for these characters alone.
3. Value for money is actually pretty good in my opinion. Playability is there in spades too.
All in all a big thumbs up for this set LEGO, you've nailed this one. My only gripe is the spring loaded shooters. After all the trouble LEGO have gone to in the last few set, they just haven't tried to hide them here.

"Are you running away"?
" This set has some great features, the new Finn and the new Rose character from The Last Jedi, oh and (anther) BB8 (because the plucky little droid isn't in enough sets already).
Playability here with all the little features and hidden compartments as well as the springloaded shooters that LEGO are managing to hide in the build rather than just sticking them on as an after thought.
The build was enjoyable and straightforward with no repetition but there are way too many sticker and for that money I'd expect more printed peices.
Value for money? At £29.99 maybe, £39.99 sorry but no.
Altogether not a bad effort, the pod and the mini figures aren't bad at all. It's only the price that lets this one down.
