FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 9

When I first saw this set, I knew I had to have it. With the retro space minifigure, it made me think back to the old space minifigures and I really enjoy seeing the updated one. This set came with a $99 purchase and I did not hesitate to get one when it first came out.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 9

We have 2 Minifigures in this set. The 1st one is the Space guy, so far exclusive to this set. The 2nd is the Robot. No unique parts or extra parts included in this set.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 6

Being a super small set of 19 pieces, there wasent much of a build, but I will admit it is always fun to put together a minifigure.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 10

Absolutly, being free was great. Of course it was with a 99$ purchase but it was worth it in the end. You could part this set out but there isnt much to part out besides the 2 figures. I would say to leave this set as unopened.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 3

This set was only given to VIP members and the non VIP members dont know it is going on. So do a lot of people know about it? Some do, but not all. This set was only advertised in the store calender and if you were signed into your VIP account.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 10

Very exclusive. Only had a 14 day run in the United States.

PACKAGING | Score: 10
GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 8

I would say there could be a reasonable growth in this set over time. If lego does ever decide to rerelease classic space, this set would shoot up in no doubt.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 6

This set goes great with the Exo suit so if there is anyway to display it, I would say like this:

Otherwise, it may look nice on a desk or with a old classic space collection.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 10

Over all for what it is, it is an amazing set for all lego builders. No one should want to miss out on this one from thier collection. AFOLs will absolutly love this set. No not hesitate to get it while you can, because not only is this just a general cool set to own, but also a possible repayment for resell in the futue.
