FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 10

I had to buy this set on EBay for $230, and to me it was worth every penny. Of all the models, this one by far is the most detailed. 

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 8

I like the fact that this set came before all the new " prefab" bricks. It is all genuine bricks/plates etc.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 10

This set is only second to the pneumatic backhoe in terms of time spent building. Truly a work of Art.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 10

Retail price, yes. Good luck getting one now.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 8

I like the model team sets above all, but I think they are going by the wayside or becoming  the new Creator theme. 

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 10

I would like to see this model brought back like some of the other classic model team kits.

PACKAGING | Score: 10

probably the largest box before the Imperial Star Destroyer and modular buildings. I wish I had kept the box. Nice picture of the model on the front.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 8

Now that more adults are "coming out" as builders, I would like to see this one reissued.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 10

this set is absolutely stunning. From a distance, you can't tell it's LEGO. It belongs on a mantle or in a display cabinet in my opinion.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 10

This would be the last set I would ever consider sacrificing.
