The best classic Star Wars set in recent years.
" This set is perfect.
The build is very straightforward, yet interesting as it is a mix of Technic and regular pieces. The way the glass panels fold inward to create a 'sharper' cockpit shape is a particular favourite feature of mine. The built model is tall but decently sized, and is very lightweight. It's very solid and fit for both play or display.
The minifigures included were a great choice for (dis)play. The pilot has two face designs: one for flying, and one for outside. The Tusken is definitely the highlight--the headsculpt is great. The rat, while small, can still be used for target practice. In addition, there is enough room in the ship for all three to fit compactly.
Overall, this is my favourite set in years. The price is a great value in comparison to amount of pieces. The build/design is neither too simple nor detailed, and might remind you of those classic SW sets from the early 2000s. Must-have. "

" Very sturdy ship, although the s-foils will get loose over time. Minifigures also sit loosely in the cockpit. The cockpit section itself was fun to build; the wings were obviously repetitive.
The real highlight is the Inquisitor minifigure, which is outstanding. The armor piece adds to his menacing look, and the double-bladed lightsaber can be attached to its back. It adds an incredible amount of value to the set.
In short: the TIE is cool, the Inquisitor is ever cooler. If one of your main reasons to buy this is for the minifigure, you won't be disappointed. "

" A good set for $50. As a modified starfighter, the build can get interesting at times, but never too complex. My only regret is being too impatient to wait until the engines were completed before putting the intake stickers on--before realizing they don't spin.
The Ventress minifigure is highly detailed and reminiscent of her first appearance in the Clone Wars microseries; Anakin is also well-detailed, but is the same as the most recent Episode 2 version.
The ship turned out a bit larger than expected, but it is nice to finally have a set from the original Clone Wars series. "

Looks a lot better in person
" I was surprised by how much nicer it looked in person, while on display at the Lego store. Fairly quick build, resulting in a pretty sturdy model Ferrari. The side profile in particular looks very sleek. "

"Attack Pattern Delta. Go now."
" Had a lot of fun building this set. The finished model looks great, especially from the top down. If I'm not mistaken this is also the first Snowpeeder with the film-accurate grey colour scheme of Rogue Leader (Luke). The only real trouble was tying the harpoon, which pushed a little over 10 minutes.
Aside from that, the rest of the build was fairly simple but still very enjoyable. The tripod turret is a nice addition, although it would have done more justice if it incorporated a stud shooter. As far as minifigures go, both Luke and the Snowtrooper get a thumbs up. "

" The ship is fairly easy to make, though the design does seem rushed. The real highlight of this set is the Iron Man Mk 55 minifigure: it looks spectacular, specifically the bodypiece. The Ultrons are highly detailed too.
For under $20, it's an overall satisfactory set. "

Good, but overpriced.
" The Hulkbuster suit was a quick, enjoyable build. I was surprised at how much better it looks in person, especially the gold pieces that appeared a bit brighter yellow in photos. I was also very impressed with the amount of detail on the Iron Man and Ultron minifigures.
My only gripe is the $40 CAN price tag as the result is still a fairly small set of about 250 pieces. "
