FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 9

Wow! What a set. We finally get some 41st Elite Corps troopers. The clone troopers in camo also look awesome. The vehicle is a nice edition. Its not anything special really. The blasters are a downer, but easily fixed by a few bricklink orders.

I had to buy this set for the minifigs. They will be hugely popular amoung collectors.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 10

- 41st Elite Corps troopers. These are just ace. Great printing.
- Clone troopers in camo. These also look fantastic.

- The blaster holders on the speeder. I have never seen these before so they might have some value.
- Republic red. These aren't very rare but (I think) are only seen on star wars sets.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 6

Obviously this is a battle pack so its not going to have fantastic playability or build experience. That said, the speeder has a rotating and spinning engine and the blasters do add playability because they shoot little round 1x1 stud pieces.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 8

The only reason this set is a bargain are the minifigures. The set can be parted out with some profit. On amazon they are £ 9.29 and the figures are sold on bricklink for roughly £2:50 upwards. The vehicle won't get you much though. 

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 9

Star wars is a very popular theme. People will want this set as building the battle of Kashyyyk in lego is a very popular thing to do. Building Kashyyyk requires some awesome vehicles, a beach, some massive trees and, of course, plenty of minifigures. This set will sell well to star wars fans, particularly collectors and MOC builders.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 5

This set is not exclusive, hard to find or limited in any way.

PACKAGING | Score: 7

The box is the standard size for a battle pack - reasonably boxy. The packaging looks good but is in no way special.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 8

This set has a big potential. I myself am probably going to invest in it. As I have said before, the 41st elite corps troopers are gold in my eyes and the camo clone troopers, silver! Collectors can never get enough and they will still purchase sets like this or parted out sets.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 7

This set can be displayed well with the AT-AP, droid gunship and tank droid sets from 2014 as they are all in the battle of Kashyyyk. The set is the smallest of the three but its minifigures are some of the finest.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

I would definately invest in this. It doesn't matter whether you part it out or sell it after it is retired, the minifigures are hot cakes on the counter! Battle packs have shown previously to be good investments (in my experiance). Battle packs sell on ebay for ~£20 and just before they retire the sets, you can pick them up for arround £8 on Amazon. So I would definately get some of these!
