FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 8

To sell or not to sell, that is the question. Screw it, I open the bag and out tips the pieces.

The printed head with a mandalorian mask - nice. (I think this is new.)
A black hood - quite nice.
A silver lightsaber hilt with a red light piece - pretty cool.
A cape in black - pretty good.
A printed torso piece and matching printed legs - very nice detailing.

As a collector, it was worth opening.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 9

- Very nice printed body in red, black and grey.
- The head is also printed well.
- The cape, lightsaber hilt and light piece, and hood have all been seen before but are still nice pieces.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 2

Obviously its a polybag so no gain here. Its really just for collectors to display.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 8

It was free with my order from shop@home during the star wars week offer. So it was free, provided you spent more than a certain amount that I can't remember now... However the set is now worth quite a bit so its quite a bargain!

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 8

Star wars is, of course, a very popular theme and Revan has gotten a lot of attention from authors and fans. A book was written all about him. Polybags have always sold for a high price and I think that this one has bags of potential (pun not  intended).

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 10

This is about as exclusive as it gets. A one week offer from shop@home. The only way you can get it now is from ebay, amazon or bricklink.

PACKAGING | Score: 4

Revan comes in a plastic bag and it has a picture of him on the front. Nothing flashy here....

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 10

Its a big fat ten here as this 'set' was free! If we hop over to ebay the prices are £12.50 upwards. This set is wanted! Now is probably the best time to sell when people still have it fresh in their minds. They might have just missed it or their friends might have one. 

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 5

This is really just a collectable minifigure. It would look great in a display case and would stand out, but there aren't really any sets that match it.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 7

I think that this is a great bag to get as a collector and a great opportunity for sellers. The figure has some brilliant detailing. I would sell the bag now when it is fresh in people's minds for the reason listed in the header above: They might have just missed it or their friends might have one.
