MEMBER OWNS SET: YES     MEMBER HAS BUILT SET: YES


FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 4

Not a good looking set by any means of the imagination. I got this one to go with the Anakin Interceptor. And because it was on sale.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 4

No unique pieces here other than colors in which some pieces arive. A Neimoidian warrior is presented but I this has almost no bearing on Star WArs Episode 1-6 collectors. The little buzz droid that it comes with is quite cool. Not much to speak of here though.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 6

Building this set was fun but over soon. Few stickers to mess up. Interesting Technics uses as well. Unfortunatley the wings that double as legs for the Vulture Droid does not articulate fully as they do in the movies. Maybe thats too much to ask of a small set but these wings/legs can only swivel up and down and individuals can open and close. This creates a problem when trying to get all the wings symmetrical.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 4

I got this set on sale. Full rretail for this small set is a bit too much.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 4

The movie this set comes from is hugely popular but not as popular as the original trilogy. I cannot see this set as being popular in itself. Although for display purposes it would look good beside the Anakin or latest Obi-Wan Interceptors from Episode III.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 2

Was available everywhere. Although almost discontinued, there are still plenty of thes eon the shelves.

PACKAGING | Score: 3

Not as detailed as other boxes. This box is small an uninspiring.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 5

I dont expect much here unless one got this set for a good discount. A collector may probably look for this set if its cheap enough or if its one of the last few sets required to complete a collection.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 6

This set can be displayed in flight mode or in walking mode. Wich makes it quite interesting. It is however difficult to get all 4 wings aligned properly to display well in flight mode.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 5

If its cheap, get it. But dont be in any rush just yet.
