"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."
"Not had the pleasure of owning the earlier versions of this set so nothing to compare it against. The build was very good with the built in plank, the compartment under the bench in the centre of the skiff. Had real fun putting this together was really impressed by the selection of mini figures included. The skiff guard is good, as is the young, recently defrosted Han Solo. Chewy is Chewy so not much to say there. Boba Fett is a great figure for this set but I would have liked to see Luke in his black Jedi outfit with green lightsaber. No stickers which is good and no spring loaded shooters. That said there is lots of playability especially if you happen to own Jabba's sail barge. The only thing that lets the set down (only slightly) is the Sarlacc pit. It's not great but does belong with the set I suppose. Great overall and value for money."
"A nice easy build with some great play features that takes no time at all to put together. Love the mini figures you get with this battle pack, the two Jawas have appeared before but you can never have enough Jawas. The Tuskan raider is a nice extra and an unnamed astromech droid. Doesn't break the bank and has some nice simple features."
"Where to start with the Silencer? The build, wow, a very nice construction. The wings are attached securely and I don't think there is much on this TIE that is likely to fall off during play, even those long thin wings seem strong without being as thick as tree trunks. I like the stretched out and somewhat flattened cockpit and body that reminds you of Vader's TIE Advanced X1. The wings are definitely inspired by the TIE Interceptor and give this a sleek, fast and menacing look. Although the wings are a rather tedious repetative build the rest is rather good and to make it even better. Mini figures make this set one of the best with the new Kylo Ren, Special Forces TIE pilot, First Order stormtrooper and BB-9E. Now if LEGO could make some more BB units (First Order or Resistance) they'd probably sell a few more sets. Hint, hint! We've got BB-8 and BB-9E but there must be some more out there in the SW universe? Playability? Plenty of that here with a durable starfighter, the flick fire missiles (which in the past I've not been a fan of) are well embedded in the build and the triggers are nicely built in, something that LEGO is getting better at and I applaude LEGO for it, long may that continue. Another good thing about this set, very few stickers, two I think. A well designed set once more from LEGO, well done."
"Another great LEGO representation of a Rogue One starship! The U Wing has to be one of my favourite builds so far amongst the released LEGO Star Wars sets. The designers at LEGO have once again done themselves proud with this set, the build is great and only the engines and wings being a bit repetitive but this is only to be expected with a symmetrical design. Stickers are kept to a minimum with this set which is good and the spring loaded missiles are built in with the triggers well hidden in the ships forward deck.
A good set of mini figures with this set, Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor and Bistan being the figures that make this set unique.
Play features are good and the ship itself is sturdy, even those long wings when extended into the space flight configuration are strong enough. The sliding troop compartment doors fold back easily and sit nicely when open or closed. The cockpit opening function is nicely concealed and the ground facing cockpit is a nice feature although it would have been nice to be able to see it from the lower troop compartment as well.
My only gripe with this set, and it's a minor one, no landing gear. A very small gripe indeed considering the number of pieces per £ and considering that I got a deal at the store. That and it doesn't fit in my display cabinet!
Overall I like this set very much, well done LEGO."
"Good to see another First Order battle pack with a few more storm troopers and another officer. A lot better than the last battle pack to feature First Order troops but still plagued by these flick fire blasters. Please LEGO? Can we have the original blasters back or as an alternative?"
"For a £12 battle pack this was definitely worth every penny just for the mini figures alone. The speeder bike is a bonus as far as I'm concerned my reason for buying this set was purely to get my hands on the bounty hunters who were briefly seen in The Empire Strikes Back. One small criticism, please can we have the standard plastic blasters in the packs along with the flick fire blasters because personally I don't like the flick fire blasters."
"I've been after this for a good while, seemed to be flying off the shelves quickly over the festive season but now things have calmed down I managed to pick one up. Although it's basically the old X Wing but in different colours and with slightly reconfigured wing design. It's still a great build, even with the repetition involved with the wing build, and is sitting nicely alongside the First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter in my collection. I have to go along with a couple of comments about the spring loaded shooters in that I'm not a fan. Overall I'm very happy with this excellent representation of the iconic Star Wars fighter. There are just the right amount of mini figures and the cost is acceptable for the number of pieces and the complexity of the build. Another good effort from LEGO, thanks."
"A good set for the price and definitely looks good alongside Obi Wan's Jedi Interceptor. As for playability it has all the whistles and bells that come with the other Jedi interceptors. Not sure where this interceptor appears in the SW series or if it's just a set from LEGOs imagination? The build is straightforward and only repetitive on the wings but that's to be expected, although I do like the wings on this particular set. The body of the interceptor is quite bulky compared to the other two versions which is a bit of a disappointment because it doesn't lend itself to being a sleek and manoeuvrable fighter Mini figure wise this set is ok, Yoda is well detailed and fits well into the cockpit although there isn't anywhere to store Yoda's lightsabre. I would have liked to see a different astromech droid because (outside of the Rebels series??) R2-D2 was never owned by Yoda! Although I can't see how it fits into the SW timeline I do like the set and for the price it's on the button."
