FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 9

Obi-Wan's Starfighter is one of the smaller UCS sets. I think it is the second smallest right after the Special Edition Naboo Starfighter. The set only has six hundrd seventy-six pieces. There are unfortunatly no minifigures in this set, but the set is very detailed. The set is the only set that has a astromech droid that is not minifigure scale. The set wowed me and I think that the set will become an iconic set in the future. Here is what Lego.com said about this set:

Blast off into The Clone Wars with Obi-Wan’s collector-series Jedi starfighter!

Now, you can build the ultimate LEGO version of Jedi general Obi-Wan Kenobi's Delta-7 Aethersprite-class Jedi starfighter! Larger and more detailed than any previous Jedi starfighter model, this limited-edition collector vehicle is equipped with twin laser cannons, a full cockpit interior and a wing-mounted R4-P17 astromech droid dome that rotates. With a buildable display stand and plaque, it's just the thing to pursue bounty hunter Jango Fett across the galaxy or battle swarms of Separatist fighters in space! Measures 9 in (23 cm) high on stand, 18" (47 cm) long and 9" (22 cm) wide when built.

  • Ultimate Collector's Series Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter!
  • Equipped with twin laser cannons!
  • Features fully detailed cockpit interior!
  • The dome of Obi-Wan's wing mounted R4-P17 astromech droid rotates!
  • Includes display stand, plaque and label sheet!
  • Model can be detached from display stand!
  • Measures 9 in (23 cm) high on stand, 18" (47 cm) long and 9" (22 cm) wide when built!

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 7

For this set, there are no minifigures. That is one of the sad features of the UCS. Only a few of the sets come with a minifigure. The set would have been better if they had added Obi-Wan Kenobi, but that did not happen. Also the set is made up of normal pieces that are found in a lot of other set, so there are no rare pieces and colors. The only rare pieces I can see is the cockpit and the astromech droid. The inly desirable feature of this set is that the set is an UCS.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 5

Playability

The set is an Ultimate Collector's Series set. The set is not really meant to be played with. It is more meant to be used as a display pieces. The only playabilty I can see in this set is Astromech droid head turning.

Build Expericence

The build experince for this set would be very short and normal. It is a small set. With about seven hundred pieces in the set, the set would take me about an hour to build the whole thing, which would not be very long.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 7

Obi-Wan's Starfighter has a retail price of $99.99 USD. Since there are six hundred seventy-six pieces in the set, the PPP ratio is fifteen cents ($0.15 USD) per piece. I would consider that a really high PPP ratio. This set has the second highest PPP ratio out of the UCS. The first being the Special Edition Naboo Starfighter. I like PPP ratios that are at or below ten cents per piece. This set is way above my comfort zone. Let's compare this set to other sets from the UCS.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 10

Obi-Wan's Starfighter comes from the Star Wars theme. The set is under the Ultimate Collectors Series sub theme. These sets are the best sets, in my opinion, ever made by Lego. There are also some of the largest sets ever created. The Star wars theme is a very popular theme. Many of the set sell well in the primary market and there are often people scouring eBay to find a set at a better price or they are looking to get a set because it EOL before they could get it. Either way, Star wars sets sell very in both the primary market and the secondary market. Because of all the people who want these sets, the values for these sets will go up.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 7

Obi-Wan's Starfightert is very exclusive. Because the set is a UCS, only a limited amount of stores sold these other than the Lego stores or online. The set was no in limited production. The set is not from any Lego trade shows that I know of. The set is not sold in the primary market anymore, so you can only get this set in the secondary market.

PACKAGING | Score: 5

There is no unique packaging or special markings on this set that would differentiate this set from other Lego sets.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 4

Obi-wan's Star fighter has a retail price $99.99 USD. The current value of this set is $98.44 USD. This means the CAGR for the set is -0.52%. That is a bad CAGR. It is negative. Let's compare this set to other sets from the UCS.
