Boba Fett keychain is a winner
" Everyone's favorite bounty hunter is a LEGO key chain! He's got a ton of detailed printing on his body and his helmet. His cape and pack are present. What's not to love? I think Boba is one of the best bangs for your buck in the key chain line period. Very few come this decked out. "

Cute, but there's a major drawback
" I have to preface my review by saying that Wicket is a small, but very cute, key chain. He's made of typical sturdy LEGO plastic and his body has held up to abuse well.
There's one major drawback though as I said in the title. The paint on Wicket's hood is simply no good.
Let me elaborate: Wicket's hood is painted with glossy orange paint. It looks good when its new but I noticed that the paint was chipping off after he'd been hanging from my keys for only a week or so. Since purchase several months ago, the front of the hood has chipped even more and it's now missing a significant bit of color around Wicket's face. I wish the paint was as resilient as the printed bits on nearly every other key chain.
If that doesn't bother you, if you adore Ewoks and collect merch of them, are aiming to get all the Star Wars key chains, or are going to hang this from something that won't see a lot of rough handling, got for it! Otherwise I'd have to recommend you pick a different key chain out. "

" It's wonderful to have a tiny Princess Leia to hang from my keys! She's got two faces: the one in the photo that's neutral/happy and if you flip it around, she's got a stern/mean expression. The downside to having heads you can flip around is that they're all but impossible to spin! Every double-faced key chain I've purchased has had a head that's been difficult to turn, but so far Leia takes the cake! Her hair moves far too easily, which makes gripping and turning the head all but impossible. I've only managed to spin her head so she's looking to her left, and it won't go back to center. I will have to either risk damaging the key chain with some sort of pliers or try getting the plastic warm with water to loosen it up a little.
Final verdict is that this keychain is still worth purchasing, but know that you'll have a tough time turning her head around (if you even want to). "

Who Ya Gonna Call?
" Ecto-1 and the Ghostbusters in LEGO form! How could you go wrong? Answer: You really can't! This LEGO set is absolutely brilliant!
Pros:
Printed pieces!!!! I cannot stress enough how much I love the printed pieces. Stickers can wear, tear, and fade over time as well as completely fall off and I've seen many a pricey set that comes with them, both for kids and AFOLs (here's lookin' at you, Benny's Spaceship [#70816] and Red Five X-wing Starfighter [#10240]). Stickers feel less professional. They're hard as heck to put on and can make or break the model's look depending on how well you can apply them. With printed bricks, you need never worry about that! You get ten printed bricks in all not counting the minifig torsos: four for the Ghostbusters' proton packs, four Ghostbusters logo pieces and two license plates for Ecto.
Ecto is super solidly built and looks really good! I can't praise it enough. It manages to retain the signature, streamlined look of the '59 Cadillac ambulance while sticking to LEGO's style. The bricks fit really tightly together (some so much so I had trouble getting them off other bricks to adjust them!) so you'll be able to hand it to a younger person and not worry about stuff falling apart when they push it across the floor. The only bits that come off easily, at least on my model, are the cylindrical bricks on the roof and the hubcaps (if you pull on them).
The figure stand! The stand is a great addition for anyone displaying the minifigs and Ecto-1 on a shelf somewhere. It was something that didn't need to be included but is a most welcome addition to the set.
The Ghostbusters minifigs! Each of the figures has unique printing on the torso and they all have two faces. One is scared and one is happy/confident.
Cons:
The missing no-ghost logo patch on each of the Ghostbusters' uniforms. A very small nitpick, but any fan will notice the absence of the patch. Also, while on the topic of patches, I feel like they could've spelled the Ghostbusters' last names out on the black patch on the front of their uniforms instead of simply using their initials. Seemed like there was plenty of room to do it! Not really a big deal at the end of the day that they didn't spell their last names out but again fans'll notice.
No baddies included to fight! Thankfully I have a Peeves minifig from a Harry Potter set that can be posed near the Ghostbusters but not everyone who purchases this will be fortunate enough to own a ghost of some sort from a previous set. I really feel a ghost would've been a good thing to toss in. Slimer would've been an obvious choice but I can understand LEGO not wanting to make a custom sculpt for a single set.
No PKE meter for Egon and no goggles for Ray! The Super Secret Police Dropship [#70815] has two cops with goggles that remind me a lot of the ones Ray wears in the movie and I feel like they could've been tweaked to work nicely with this set somehow.
The price. Hear me out on this one. I completely understand the price as a collector: Special box, printed bricks (which ups regular mfg cost), better instruction manual than normal, four minifigs, and a TON of pieces all coupled with licensing. Honestly, this collectible is a far greater deal than any of those other plastic model kits or scaled replicas of Ecto-1 available because you can actually have fun with it! I simply think a casual consumer who would consider buying this as a gift for someone else would find the price off-putting.
As a side note on price: this set comes in at just under .10c/brick (.0984/brick) which makes it one of the best LEGO deals currently available, better than even non-licensed sets! "

" Bad Cop in keychain form! Could you ask for more? The cool thing about all of the LEGO Movie key chains over the other ones: they come with an extra printed brick! You can separate this special brick from Bad Cop's key ring and if you have pliers you can remove the metal chain entirely and use the brick in construction!
Bad Cop has two faces printed on: Good Cop and Bad Cop. Both faces are the same ones printed on the Bad Cop you get in his LEGO Movie set. They are both cleanly printed, very expressive and represent the character well. The printing on his body is also exceptional and what I've come to expect from the company. His legs and head are permanently attached which, for a key chain, is a major plus. They'll never unplug and get lost! His hands and arms also feel firmly attached and I don't think I'll have to worry about having one snap off and get lost.
Something I've seen several people complain about is having multiple expressions printed on the head but that they can't get the head to turn so you can see the hidden face properly. I can confirm that Bad Cop's head DOES spin around so you can swap between expressions but it's tricky to accomplish. You have to spin the hat around backwards to the hidden expression, grip the key chain and figure firmly enough that it won't go flying out of your hand and press your thumb against the face and turn both hat and head at the same time. Don't try and turn it at the metal part; that won't work. I found it slightly easier to spin the head when my thumb was vertically placed over the head/hat but you can turn the head horizontally with your thumb as well. Some figures' heads spin more easily than others, as I found out when I tested a couple of them before picking one to purchase. I commend LEGO for going the extra mile to give us the option of swapping faces instead of making two different key chains.
Price-wise I feel Bad Cop is about average for what any key chain goes for these days if not slightly cheaper so the value is decent for what you get. Too, hardly any other LEGO key chains come with a secondary piece attached, much less a usable brick! If you're a fan of the movie, want an extra printed brick, or love collecting these key chains in general I say pick one up before they're gone. "

THE A-Wing to get
" Let it be said that I haven't really ever been an avid LEGO collector. I had a set of DUPLO bricks and a Creator set or two growing up that I tinkered with on occasion but that was it. I happened to walk down the aisle and find this particular set on display and instantly had to have it.
PROS:
-This particular version of the A-Wing is solid in construction. Once it's together you shouldn't have any issues with it falling back apart.
-The flick missiles are a fun addition and there are plenty of slots to fire the missiles from.
- You get three wonderful mini-figures that all sport lavish amounts of detailing. The pilot is completely new and has two facial expressions.
-The design is top-notch. It doesn't feel too bulky or too disproportionate; it's a sleek ship as it should be. It looks like a LEGO A-Wing rightfully should.
-Quality control is SUBERB. Usually toys these days come off the shelf with small dings, dents, paint app sloppiness, you name it. Not so with LEGO products.
CONS:
-STICKERS. I am a capable adult who can put stickers on with decent precision but a child most certainly would not be able to get these on straight, especially on the clear canopy piece. Thankfully you can easily peel them back up and re-stick them if you make a mistake! I just wouldn't recommend doing that a whole lot of times. In all honestly I'd love to see details printed onto the bricks. Makes those who can't apply stickers well happy campers and makes the design last way longer.
-I'm iffy on the $25 price tag being a con or not, but it feels like it's verging on being too pricey. Especially when you have comparable 3-figure sets this size selling for $20. "
