This review is from: Angry Birds Star Wars Early Angry Birds Package (Toy)
Let me begin by saying that the Angry Birds/Star Wars convergence has been a great way for my son (4 years old) to learn about the Star Wars universe and get his imagination going. He was given the toys before the app came out, and they have been seen daily use as basically entry-level action figures. It has been refreshing to see him move from the electronic device to the imaginative play with little protest.
The main reason to buy this set then is to add to the collection, as the launcher is not exclusive and the two plastic blocks really don't add much in the grand scheme in terms of the intended game play. The four figures are major characters though, and Leia is pretty cool.
Here is where I geek out trying to maximize my spending dollars. The price per figure is the best deal available across the board at roughly $2.75. If you are considering buying these figures as a complement to one of the smaller cheaper sets, you get a comparable value to the death star set on the figures, but not on the game play. The game play for the death star set is superior, but geared for older kids at 8+. The AT-AT set, remains my recommended buy based on value, interest across age levels, and game play.
