A step in the right direction
" Lets be real. We asked for a $15 battle pack with 4 501st clones, and we got it for double the price! Great business move. I guess.
The set is good, it isn't great build-wise it is only great and worth buying because of the troopers. I'm always brutally honest with my reviews and I won't spare any detail.
I got 4 of these sets total (3 from Lego and one from a local store) and the printing on about 5 of the troopers is kind of wonky or fuzzy. A couple helmets were very lopsided, so I'm not sure if I can purchase replacements or if I just have to deal with that.
I am a fan of the new clone faces, I'm hoping to see variations on the same Jango face such as scars, facial stubble and other expressions, more variety would be great, and I'm happy they nailed the clone's skin tone.
This set opens the door to endless opportunities such as a 21st Nova Corp clone legion set, or 327th Star Corp clone legion set, even 332nd trooper set which is Ahsoka's clone trooper. I know fans want clones, and I think not only would this be a great opportunity to supply that demand but if clone faces use the same base (color and face) with variations like scars, other expressions and stubble I think Lego would really make their fans happy with that! "
I would recommend this to a friend!

What is going on Lego?
" This is probably the most disappointing Lego sets of all time, and with good reason.
It is way too expensive for what you're getting. Not only did they reuse the Mustafar Obi-Wan but $80 for a medium-sized ship and 3 figures is ridiculous. It was rumored that a Phase 2 Commander Cody was supposed to come with this set but they're probably going to put him in the UCS Gunship coming out sometime next year which I'm very excited for.
The ONLY thing I like about this set is the Clone Airborne Trooper. His printing and detail is awesome, as well as the new clone face under his helmet. I wish we could get more of this trooper or even a Purge Trooper soon. Other than that, this set is a pass.
IF Lego is reading this, where's a Jango Fett Slave 1? Its been18 years. Where are the 21st Nova Corp clones? So many missed opportunities with this wave. We could use a new Clone Wars Y-Wing or ARC-170, how about a UT-AT?
There are so many things Lego could've done but won't do for some reason. Just food for thought. "

It is OK
" I'm happy we finally got a Tie Interceptor, even though the original is loooong over due for a remake. My real gripe with this set is the price. $70? Yeah right.. I just got lucky because my wonderful girlfriend got me this for my birthday, though I told her not to because it is very overpriced. But, I'm grateful for it. It does look nice on a shelf.
Pros- Finally an Interceptor, looks good on shelf
Cons- Overpriced, the figures are very much lackluster "
