"While the attention for this season might be on the enormous sets, pushing the bounds of 1000 pieces (of which I've already built several this year), this set on the other hand comes in at a meager 377 pieces. That said, what Lego managed to do with that few pieces is quite amazing. You get 3 figures, a mech/robot, and a flying car.
The design of both models is fantastic. The mech comes in an attractive american color scheme of dark red and dark blue. Unlike many Lego set mechs the knee joints actually work. There are no ankle joints however, but the working knee joints still make posing fun. The mech design is simple but effective and I learned some good techniques building it. It's also a sturdy model. I've yet to knock any parts off, though the "fins" sticking out the back are easy to knock out of exact position.
The flying car is also an excellent design. This isn't the first model to include the play feature of being able to turn the wheels horizontal to represent flying, but it's still just as neat a feature as when it first showed up on a set. The car has, again, a great american inspired Cadillac look. Like the mech, the model is sturdy and the only "damage" I've managed to do was to knock the figure loose since I have it posed with the gun sticking about as seen on the box.
And if that wasn't enough, there's an Iron Man mini figure thrown in too.
Hands down, this is one of the best valued sets for the season. My son was near obsessed with the flying car and I have placed the mech on semi-permanent display. At $30 (less at a certain retailer that has rollback prices), it's a no-brainer to make as your next purchase."
