"I needed something to get my mind off of the election, so I bought myself this guy to distract me for an evening. It was a fun build and I never found myself feeling too bogged down in redundancy. It's a solid set for those of you young enough to still pay with your sets. The baby Yoda is half the reason I got the kit and he's super cute. That'll lead me to my critiques:
The other figures are great except the IG is a frustrating joke. One piece was missing from my set but I had a similar enough piece that it was fine. There's a heavy reliance on big custom pieces with stickers in this set. Both the cockpit and the landing gears leave a bit to be desired. I made some modifications to this ship to "improve" on some of my issues. I redid the cockpit to get rid of a big bubbly piece that I disliked and to make it so you can fold back the cockpit rather than remove it. I built up the underside of the ship/landing gears a bit. I plan to flip the way the sides so the landing gears can retract into the sides of the ship but will need to rebuild to make this work. I also flipped the engines just because I liked the look better and added a rear turret because....duh! The engine intakes are cool but I wish there was a little more range of motion on these."
