"First and foremost, this set looks great on display! There is moderate use of stickers, but still, the smaller details around the engines and body of the ship are very well done. The integration of the handle/radar dish is a welcome one, as the finished product is a tad awkward to hold without it. Also, the new Bail Organa figure is awesome! Overall, I'm very pleased with the look of the ship.
However, I believe that most people who buy this set will have done so for the same reason as me: to display. So why not make it UCS and include a plaque and display stand instead of the toy-like stud and missile shooters? I don't know... to me it feels weird and makes the $200 price tag a bit steep.
Although, this is a small complaint of what is ultimately a well-done and long overdue model of the iconic Tantive IV. Star Destroyer to follow? :)"
"Being a huge fan of the prequel era, I personally couldn't resist picking this up. But once, I picked one up, I had no inclination to purchase another because of the addition of two, named characters. It would've been nice to receive four clone troopers/officers in order to army build. I also am not a fan of how the stud shooters look.
That being said, I am happy with the quality of the included minifigures and the simple, little build."
"I think this is a great little display set with a good selection of minifigures - the detail on the sandtrooper and Greedo are particularly well done. Despite the play features that are included, I do think that adult collectors will find more value in this set. Speaking of value, I also think that it should be priced closer to $30 or $35 because it is surprisingly small (which isn't bad, personally, because I have little room left on my display shelf). However, the detail that is offered in the small space is great and helps make up for its low volume."

"I love LEGO - especially Star Wars LEGOs. However, this set feels like a slap in the face. The main build isn't even a complete build and looks TERRIBLE on display. The side build feels forced in just to get the piece count up, when in reality, this could've been accomplished by actually offering the head to the walker. The only reason I got this was because I'm a sucker for minifigures and didn't get Captain Phasma the first time around. Therefore, unless you or your child completely loved this scene in The Last Jedi, I wouldn't buy this product."
"I was impressed with the diversity in the selection of minifigures - not a single repeated face, the helmets were almost all different, and the rebel uniforms were distinct and detailed! The builds are aesthetically pleasing, while also being fun for kids to play with.
I don't like the stud shooters and I would've preferred the price remain the same $12.99 I've gotten accustomed to, but overall, I can't complain; it's a great battle pack."
"The main reason that I got this set was for the death troopers, which are really quite impressive minifigures. Beyond that, the set offers little variety, and the walker-like mech seems a little out of place. I would've been find with these flaws if the set was cheaper, but the higher price-point left me wanting."
"When the 2006 model of the Slave 1 ship came out, I begged my mom to let me get it with no success. 10 years later, I am old enough to make my own decisions and buying this set was one of them; thank god I did. It's beautiful to look at and the building techniques are some of the best I've seen from LEGO. I love this set and the exclusive Boba Fett."
