"I first thought this set was not that great because of all the hate it got but when I dicided to get it it was actually a very good set.
I do not really agree with the amount of hate it got for example: Landinf gear does not retract. No indeed but you can take it off really easy and the older one couldn't either. Also if this was a feature then there would be almost no space inside.
Talking about space there is alot if space I side the thing itself. You can fit 1 pilot in the cockpit and bisides that you can fit 3 stormtroopers in every open space allowing you to put in 12 stormtroopers. Sandtroopers are a little bigger with their bagpacks but if you want you can put 2 in every space having 8 in total. You can also fill a empty space with a 3x4 crate or smaller crates if you have those and if you really want to fill things up you can place a minifigure or a crate on the inside of the middle hatch that opens up to store more troopers so you can have 14 stormtroopers in total and there is also a empty space in the rounded areas in front. If you are creative there is alot of space inside. Overal for the non-diehardfans it looks pretty good. It doesn't matter that the top of the cargo area isn't flat it looks good this way too.
It is great to have some good guys in the set aswell and we all know that Lego never puts two of the same figures in a Lego set. Even with the battle packs (sometimes only the heads are different like with the rebel stormtroopers battle pack but that only happens in battle packs)
I think that alot of people are hating on this set for no good reason and I think this set deserves alot more positive feedback because it is a really good set and works really well"
