FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 8

The A-Wing has always been one of my favorite starfighters from Star Wars. Seeing this for the first time was exciting, as well as the minifigures. From the box, I could already tell that it was mostly movie-accurate, but could also tell it was packed with stickers. Still a nice first impression, however

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 9

You get a couple of uncommon parts, including a 2x2 transparent neon green cylinder (as well as a few more), and an exclusive minifigures, another which has only appeared in one other set. The A-Wing pilot is exclusive, at least this variant, and Admiral Ackbar is in this set too, which was also featured in the 7544 Home One Mon Calamari Star Crusier, and this is his only appearence since.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 8

Very enjoyable build. Though not much playability, there are two flick-fire missles mounted on both sides of the ship. Also has a nice "swoosh" factor, meaning it feels very fun to fly around with. Also very sturdy, so younger kids can handle it too.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 7

Though an unfair PPP ratio, you are still getting great minifigures as well as a few uncommon or rare parts

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 10

Star Wars is one of LEGO's best selling themes since its debut in 1999.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 8

It includes one exclusive minifigure, another which has only been in one other set.

PACKAGING | Score: 8

Standard packaging, but stands out a bit more to me than the rest.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 7

Despite that the A-wing isn't a very popular ship, this probably would still do well if it weren't for the minifigures.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 8

Easily displayable with a folding stand underneath the front of the ship.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 9

Great set! You are getting a great model and minifigures you want for 25 dollars, and also some rare parts! Would reccomend.
