FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 7

These small boxes hide clever little treasures... The striking black asteroid field is completely different from the others that resemble planets. Of course this hearkens back to Episode II. Positively dangerous.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 5

These small sets do not use many parts and rely on clever design. What we do havve is Bomber pilot, of which we have precious few. They resemble the fighter pilots with some detail changes.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 7

These small models amaze me by how clever they are designed. The build leads one to marvel at the simplicity of techniques used to create a shape that is quite complex for it's size.

The small Tie Bomber swooshes very nicely but with its little display stand and Minifigure.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 9

Small number of bricks but very enjoyable to build. And I got these on sale.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 10

Star Wars Original Trilogy. 'Nuff said. Probably one of the most collectable themes out there.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 7

Now discontinued, these have been relegated to bargain bins. If you can still find them.

PACKAGING | Score: 6

Small tight packaging with the bricks hidden on the globe. Clever. Cute artwork.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 7

These are cheap and widely available sets and the appeal would be to collect all 12 models. Depending on which one the collector is missing, a prermium may be paid.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 8

These little models are made for display. This particular one does not have a big brother to pose against but with his brethren, the display becomes imposing. Very neat.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 8

Fun and entertaining sets that are made for display. Collect them all!
