The Finalizer?
" If it is in fact The Finalizer.
The set is pretty cool, I didn’t think it would be so big, I haven’t had any of the previous star destroyers from years prior and thought it had some potential to be underwhelming from pictures of those other sets.
But this is really cool, the amount of detail is amazing.
There’s some interesting play features, the stud shooters on the side are alright, there’s an elevator feature to reach what can be a command bridge or Snokes chambers.
I had a couple of the different first order battle packs from the force awakens line and the latest one, I would recommend these for additional crew as the set only comes with a few figures.
Though they are nice ones, Snoke is unique, they got his golden bathrobe done in an interesting way of printing, BB-9E makes an appearance too which is great.
The shuttle pilot has a helmet mould I like a lot but the crewman body is so overused and boring but it works.
The officer figure is done in a cool gun metal grey colour and has a good face print.
And lastly a couple storm troopers, one is a squad leader as he has a pauldron.
The build itself has a lot of nice detail on the hull, it feels sturdy too and has a great carrying handle.
Back to the space inside, you can’t expect too much room for what it is but I wanted to fit all my first order figures in somehow..
I took out the elevator feature, popped out the cylinder piece and found space behind it to pop 3-4 stormtroopers.
I found it difficult to have Snoke in his chamber, he needs to lay back in order for the top to close.
Some modifications I made were additional plates and small bits of detail to the hull but also a gun rack to accomodate the weapons of the additional officers & troops I added.
All in all I’m very satisfied but a few more figures would have been nice, it looks so empty without the battlepack dudes.

Specialist Battle Pack
" This is a simple pack, the cannon has some play value but it’s a little lacking, aesthetically it doesn’t fit for me.
The minifigs are the main draw for these packs and this one makes it really easy to get a few executioners, which is really all you need.
They’re good looking, mine had a misprint on the helmet but I’m sure it’s not common. Their melee weapons are creative and at a good scale.
The shuttle pilot might be my favorite, the helmet design is crisp and reminiscent of the death star trooper helmets.
The gunner on the other hand has that all too common helmet and even though the two just mentioned have the same bodies the gunner isn’t as creative a choice or as fun.
Since it is a The Last Jedi set a royal guard would have been cool, even a new type of officer..
But it’s not the worst.
Just not as good as the others.
I would also say stud shooters are an issue but it’s fine for some play value.
The real guns just look better.

First Order
" These packs are fun for parts usually not really great for the builds themselves but the cannon included is pretty sweet, it has storage inside and a nice look.
The figures are detailed, the stormtroopers look great but I'm not a huge fan of the crewmen, the helmeted one especially, he's alright in small numbers but the storm troopers are where it's at.
The officer has a nice cap as well, I like the detailed print and the semi-gloss to it.
Overall it's a good little set.
Things I would change would be the shooters into regular blasters, these are too big, clunky, look awkward and I would also get rid of the crewman with the helmet for another stormtrooper, maybe a commander with a pauldron?

Imperials
" When I was a kid imperials were my favorite, being able to get a few really great looking stormtroopers for relatively cheap is right on.
The detail on these figures is great, I'm blown away even more-so by the death troopers, the helmets are so intricate.
The walker is neat for a little set like this.
I gotta be like everybody else and complain about the guns, these flick pieces are lame, they just look too big and awkward.
Overall though, great. "

Speeder
" This is a neat little set.
The speeder is a simple build, could've used some little pieces on the bottom so it doesn't sit flat but it was quick, easy and enjoyable to put together.
The little guns are alright, some of the bigger sets have some cooler looking parts that actually resemble the blasters in the movies but my little sister enjoys these things.
Love the detail on the minifigures, they're very crisply printed and maybe the only thing I'd change is the clone head under the helmets but I can see why they do that and it's not a big deal.
At the very least it's good for getting some bad guys and has some great parts/pieces.
