He loved it so much – By Donna Everett on March 23, 2016
Well, we finally got it together! It was for my 5 year old grandson, and though he could do some of it, you as a parent will be doing most of it! He loved it so much, and we kragled it together! (GLUED)
What every boy loves – By Ken on March 22, 2016
Bought this for my 9 year old grandson as it has over 1200 pieces. Can you believe he had it assembled in under two hours?
Beauty isn’t Everything – By C. Owen on January 5, 2016
I, like quite a few people, never had this on my list of ‘must gets’. However, when the price dropped from the $130 MSRP to the $95 I ended up paying, I took a closer look at it. It has a decent, but not extensive set of minifigs, and while I laughed at another reviewer’s comment about it looking like a bad RV in space, it is a decent representation of the vehicle itself, given the size of the ‘real thing’.
As far as functions go, you get an opening cockpit, opening side doors (where spare blaster thingies are stored), two blaster thingies, four little pop cannon things (that shoot a round 1×1 plates) that swivel through a gearing mechanism driven by the rotating the central ‘engine’, a removable top over the central section which allows access to a detailed interior, complete with two hidden compartments in the floor that each hold a bin of spare round 1×1 plates for the pop canon things to replace the ones that you will inevitable lose in the carpet, and four micro TIE Fighters that drop off the bottom of the ship with the press of a button at the rear of the ship’s wings (four TIE Fighters, one button for each so they can be released individually). The release mechanism is quite clever for this last function, and it is easy to reload the fighters onto their pegs.
For me, this is an excellent selection of functions, both for the size of the set, and the cost. Sure, it’s not the prettiest Star Wars Lego out there (okay, it’s a complete dog), but it’s an excellent representation at a good price, with great features. I might have liked a couple more minifigs for the price, but at the same time the Imperial Droid and Sabine Wren are pretty cool, and at best uncommon.
