"Having never seen Freemakers I was perhaps not the target audience for this set. However, I saw Naare and immediately knew she was a character I'd love, and I wasn't wrong having read a bit about her.
So in the order that we build them... Dengar has always been a popular figure and this new design is a good one. I'm not a huge fan of the character, but he's a great addition to my rogues' gallery. His speeder bike suits him very well. The pair look well-suited to racing across the sands of Tatooine.
Naare has rapidly become one of my favourite LEGO figures. She has so much personality conveyed in the contrast between her two expressions, and the option to swap her hood for hair is a great addition. Also, she comes with two 'Ventress' style lightsaber hilts, so if you have a spare blue blade lying around you can equip her with both her Jedi and Sith weapons. Her outfit is great and the detail on her faces is sublime.
The Eclipse Fighter itself is a marvellous build, and feels very substantial in your hands. The way the wings shift back and forward is ingenious, and looks like a very smooth and natural transition from hyperspace to fighter mode. There is, conveniently, enough space to store Naare's hairpiece in the cockpit with her, if you're worried about losing it.
Despite all these great strengths, it feels like something is missing from this set. It is rather small for the £40 price tag, I picked it up for £30 and felt this was more reasonable. Perhaps another minifig or some more accessories would have padded the set out. Either way, I had fun putting this set together and the Eclipse Fighter is a fantastic craft for any Sith warlord's spacefleet!"
"This model beautifully captures one of my most memorable Star Wars scenes (old salts hold off your prequel hate, I grew up with TPM!)
The minifigs are all wonderful designs. Darth Maul in particular is a figure I've always wanted to own and I'm really happy with how he's turned out. There is also a noticeable increase in the quality of lightsaber blades from those in my older sets; the colours are deeper and cleaner. Capes would have been nice, but they weren't worn in the scene so I can see why they are omitted here.
The set itself is a wonderful little display piece with some great play features. My one criticism is that the circular section and bridge are a bit too small. There isn't a great deal of room for the figures and their deployed lightsabers, and while Obi-Wan will occasionally spring heroically from the hole it's a bit hit-and-miss as to whether he gets snagged by his lightsaber blade or not!
These are however minor complaints and I'm really pleased that I bought this set. Good value for money, good build, good figs, good set!"
"This set initially caught my eye as a quick way to get a Shuttle Pilot, but I noticed that the shuttle itself looked like quite a good little model.
I wasn't disappointed. Krennic's Shuttle is one of the most beautiful vehicles in the Star Wars universe and this set does it great justice on a small scale. It looks fine without the pilot sitting in it and if you want a nice little token to display your love for Rogue One on your desk or bookshelf look no further.
I do feel that £12 is a bit steep but with the quality of plastic LEGO use now (it's noticeably different to my old bricks) I feel like I'm mostly getting my money's worth."
"The price tag made me balk for months, but I couldn't resist this beautiful set any longer. I wasn't disappointed. The box seems unnecessarily huge, but the set is actually made up of an astonishing number of bricks. There's lots of attention to detail and it's a fantastic set if you love the thrill of the build, without being too complicated - I only took two hours because I was multitasking!
Joker and Harley are both great but Batgirl steals the show. Printed arms, printed legs, a unique cowl with a ponytail attached and her colouration is just right. Definitely a personal favourite all time figure.
The lowrider itself is a beautiful model. The decals and unusual pieces suit the feel of the set and the LEGO Joker's character so well. This set clearly had a lot of effort and time put into its design, which I really appreciate.
A nice little bonus is the spare parts that come with the set. Harley has a spare pair of roller skates, Batgirl has a spare batarang, and a spare golden fire hose head used on the side of the car makes a great pistol for Mister J.
Thank you LEGO for maintaining your high standards! Overall I would say this set is only just worth the price. I think this set would make a perfect gift for the LEGO Batman fan in your family.
"I've been out of the Lego loop for quite a while, but recently bought 7600 Batman vs. Mr. Freeze- Aquaman on Ice and today bought this as well.
I was very impressed with what came out of the box. I bought the set because (as the name implies) I'm a big Deadpool fan, but he turned out to be a small bonus in this great little bundle. The helicopter is a pretty decent size, and I was pleasantly surprised by the little bay behind the spacey cockpit- it's great for passengers or storage. The whole model looks awesome as well, especially Wolverine's motorcycle- I've never seen one like it in Lego but as a rider myself I think it's doing the MCs world great justice. On to pros and cons!
Pros: The helicopter- it's proportionate to the figures, and has a really nice look in a slightly darkened version of Deadpool's colour scheme. The missiles are placed pretty neatly, the rotors I thought would be unsteady but seem to hold well, and the little handles for Deadpool's swords actually look good with them in place.
The motorcycle- it's the first realistic Lego motorcycle I've seen, and it's a great one. The two body pieces hold together great and overall you end up with a sweet little ripper. It has an exhaust pipe, a fuel tank and a front light plus some studs on the back that could hold some small items.
The minifgures- like I said, I bought the set for Deadpool. However, while Deadpool is awesome (his detail is sublime, and his swords look great in his scabbard) Magneto and Wolverine proved to be good surprises as well. Magneto's helmet and cape are two very nice features, and Wolverine has some great printing-including his hood, visible on his back as he's not wearing it. His claws (which come with a spare) are like the Prince of Persia ones in that he holds them, but they look very much like Wolverine's metal claws in both comic and film incarnations. While the scene resembles X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the characters are all in their comic book forms, and I'm glad of it.
Cons: The helicopter: the wheels look good, but due to their positioning the whole vehicle is easy to knock back onto its tail. The tail is heavy enough that it holds the vehicle down, which looks pretty dumb, but it's a tiny flaw in an otherwise excellent model. Wolverine looks badass here, but I think if he's in comic form he should have his mask on. That's just personal opinion, but the option of interchangeability would be nice. The whole model is pretty overpriced. It's great quality, but looking at it I don't feel like I should have paid £20. £15 would be more reasonable. But I understand Lego's situation, and by no means am I complaining- this is a fantastic model and if you're considering buying it, go forth and do so!"
