Better Than Last Year But Still Expensive
" PROS: No Stickers. This set is a VAST improvement over last years. We got the holiday themed figures again which is honestly the main draw of the advent sets...and with Poe and Vader Lego seems to be apologizing for the lack of one in the 2019 set. This year they also went for MOSTLY NEW builds for the vehicles with only 4 of the 24 being used in previous advent sets. I really like the Trade Federation Battleship and the Razor Crest. Overall it felt like one of the better advent sets. We got new mini vehicle builds and a nice selection of figures that were A-listers instead of D-lister characters.
CONS: Price is a huge issue for these advents...this one punches in ay $.13 per part putting it on the high end. I recommend getting it at Walmart or Khols who are both selling it at $30 rather than $40. Additionally, there are 2 of the 24 days that are pretty phoned in...the D-O build is only 3 parts...and the Porg is pretty simple too, they feel more like filler than an actual prize...they should have had more to them at the least and preferably replaced with something better entirely.

Hulbuster Is A Win
" PROS: This set scores in most regards. It is a wonderful nod to the classic comic version of the Hulkbuster Armor and includes both a classic Ironman and classic Rescue figures. Excellent choices. For $40 you are actually getting a good value with the price coming in at $.08 per part. The build is both sturdy and swooshable with the exception of the little turret. We also get more minions and with 4 figures this set feels very nice.
CONS: It has stickers so it isn't perfect. The only two bad things I can say are it should have included the Hulk or a villain not just minions. The second is that this set comes with the less popular armor helmets. Lego needs to stop with the new Ironman helmets...I know the two part version with the flipping visor is probably costing a few more cents per set but it is a vastly superior design and a huge Ironman play feature.

Best Black Panther Figure
" PROS: This is a very fun set. The Black Panther fig is a throw back for those of us that like the comics version...love the collar. Always nice to get some minions for army building too. The bike is very playable and sturdy. It also looks good especially compared to the recent Captain America one which was just lacking. I also really like the minion jet pack. Overall a well designed set. This set feels solid without any tacked on things that don't add to the play experience. Very nice.
CONS: Stickers. A super hero set should always have a good villain...that is a big down point. Finally as always the price is key. This one is $.15 per part without anything really special to justify it. It is easily 20% too high. "

Perfect Super Hero Set
" PROS: This set includes exactly what you want in a Super Hero set. You get a good villain in Venom and his mech suit fits him well. You got a prime Hero and a secondary hero whom in this case was a huge hit. Noir Spidey is AWESOME! I love the subtle references to the Spiderverse that Lego is doing this year with the figures. Then there is the jet. This is both swooshable and playable and actually very sturdy in design. It looks cool and has lots of firing weapons. The price point is EXCELLENT too it hits the sweet spot at $.08 per part and gives a very nice selection of parts in lots of colors. This is a win Lego. This is what we want in a Super Hero Set.
CONS: Stickers. Venom Mech is a little fragile. "

This Is A Fun Set
" Pros: I love the playability of this set. It has lots of guns and hidden features and looks pretty good as a build. I like both hero figures and it comes with a couple goons that we don't get a lot of. I am a big fan of the "explosion and beam" packs being put in these sets now...they add a lot to play and display possibilities. The hair and helmet option for Captain America is a nice touch. It is also possibly my favorite version of Hawkeye...I like this suit.
Cons: Stickers are never as good as printed parts. The truck is slightly flimsy on the side panels in play so this might not be the best set for the younger end of the age recommendations. The minion figures are great but a Super Hero set should always have a good villain too. Price wise this set is $.15 per part...way too high. The Black Widow helicopter set gave you 11 more parts at a $10 cheaper price so this is one to buy on sale or skip. Good news is I see it at Walmart for 20% off regularly. "

Black Widow Gets Her Due
" Pros: This set is very nice. The figures appear to reflect the source pretty well and the Helicopter while not source accurate is a solid build. It is sturdy and swooshable and includes the 3 main figures from the film. As a set it also feels nice as it can easily be repurposed for normal city play.
So-So: It is not a value...it marks in at $.11 a part...which isn't good bod not the worst we are seeing from Lego price wise at the moment.
Cons: Stickers on curved pieces are always prone to peeling. The little 4-wheel car adds very little to the build and is pretty boring as an addition...it should have been a 4th figure...preferably Red Guardian. "

Not a great version of the AT-AT
" The At-AT is one of my favorite vehicles in SW and I have so far managed to get all the Lego releases of the vehicle. There have been many versions...including a walking motorized one. This version though just is not great overall.
PROS: The figure selection is just what would be expected and the General Veers figure is a nice update. Play wise it has some good features including internal docking for the speeder and figures...this has been improved over other versions as it is easier to access the inside now and has more seating for troopers than any previous version. There is a new feature in this version allowing you to raise and lower the harpoon with Luke. This was a nice little aspect. As always it also gets points for not having stickers as well.
CONS: The speeder bike sucks...this is hands down the worst version of the snow speeder bike. It was clearly a phoned in after thought and just terribly designed. It falls apart with basic play and completely defeats the point when previous versions were both swooshable and more accurate to the source. Then there is the "head" of the AT-AT...this is a bad version...the look is wrong and the proportiions are not right at all...it really hurts the display quality...especially side by side with previous versions. Additionally, it does not close correctly when the pilot is actually inside...I had to check a couple time to see if I built it wrong to be sure but it does not in fact close flush with the Veers figure driving. The model itself also has some stability issues...it is too fragile. Panels constantly come loose and the legs cannot really be posed and have it remain upright for displays...something done better in ALL the previous versions. Then ther is the price...this set is $.15 per part and by weight is actually less total plastic than the version we got only 5 years ago...yet lego upped the price almost a full 50%. In fact the MOTORIZED WALKING version of the AT-AT was $30 cheaper. That isn't just inflation...that is gouging your customer and its a trend this year with Lego Star Wars... "

Fun set but pricey
" Fun set with well designed and sturdy construction. It is pretty accurate to the on-screen source. I really like the look of this vehicle it is just a fun design.
The weapons firing feature gives it a little extra something and was a nice touch. It also has a nice little storage compartment in back. While "swooshing" it about the weapons stay safely stowed.
The figures are good with two of them being exclusive additions.
The only downside I found was the value. For a $50 it is about 10-15 dollars over what it should be. In fact the pirate tank set #7753 is $10 cheaper and you get 50 more parts. I know it is a limited edition but it is still overpriced. "
