Does what it says on the tin...
" LEGO has released a few shuttle models in the past, two in the early 2000's and the main Shuttle in 2015, and this iteration is a welcome addition to the catalogue. Compared to the 2015 counterpart which would have retailed at around £110 you're getting a pretty spot on down scale.
The fin is super sturdy so there is no issue holding it from the top. The interior is small, but big enough to fit both Luke and Vader as well as the Pilot in the front and has a clever hinge system for secure yet easy access.
For the £69.99 price tag, more than three figures would have been preferred. The Luke figure simply superb, great duel print on the face and a really nice custom hair piece. The Vader figure, although high quality with a new helmet style, fails to have arm printing which would have been a really nice touch. Also, Vaders cape is made from the more rigid material and sadly will bend permanently if placed inside the shuttle incorrectly. The Imperial Pilot is well made, nice badge on the hat too, good to see the attention to detail.
Overall this is a good set if you missed the 2015 release, although I would have priced it around £59.99. Decent size, sturdy build and nice figure selection. One of the biggest drawbacks is the ugly 'chin' on the underside of the cockpit, which in my opinion could have been cleaned up fairly easily. This is a cool set and it's made a fine addition to my ever increasing collection :)
