-- The clearest thing I have to say about this set is that it's really cool how it can fold to be either a horizontal chase-like scene or a square one. It's not obvious that it's capable of this, but it is. The set has clearly had talented design work put into it, and said work shows.
-- This is also not obvious, but the platforms are on /tracks/, meaning you have a dynamic battlefield.
-- So the first thing a lego enthusiast will see looking at this set is all the trans. orange pieces -- and it certainly doesn't disappoint on that front, there are 48 in total including the extra piece. As is known, trans. pieces are relatively rare and great for making beautiful things, such as spaceships.
-- The droid is just very cute. Such adorable trans. purple eyes.
-- Double expressions for Ani/Kenobi.
-- There's a flick-fire for three lava studs, meant to be a spray of lava or a burst of sparks, but if you lift one end of the battlefield even a little, they'll fall out quite promptly. This felt a little tacked on, enough so that I kinda just want to ignore the whole mechanism. In addition, flick-fire missiles should be large, they absolutely should not be a trio of easy to lose studs.
-- The lavamill doesn't spin. Why? Heaven knows. I mean, /yes/ half of it is drenched in /lava/, but when has that ever stopped a /lavamill/ from spinning?
-- Really makes me wish 'Darth Vader Transformation' was still available. T_T
Anyway, this is the first set I've bought in a while, and it's quite exciting. The issues are minor, excusable, and I'm happy to be getting back into lego."
