Legos are always expensive, especially the premium sets like Star Wars. My son (7) picked this one out himself out of all the $20 and under sets at the Lego store. When assembled, it has movable wings and comes with the bad-guy pilot and the R2-Q2 robot.

It took him about 1 hour to build, start to finish, with me helping to sort the pieces, correct a couple mistakes, and put the decals on. Overall, it was a straightforward build and not too tricky.

Once completed, the cockpit opens and closes using a hinge, and the wings on the rear sides rotate 90 degrees. The grey parts of the wings can also be bent. There are no shooting missiles.

The pilot can fit in the cockpit even with his gun in his hand, which is nice. R2-Q2 is slightly metallic in color, not just a plain grey. With R2-Q2 as he's seen in the picture, you actually have to detach his head an only put the head on the ship in order to match the picture. However, it does fit perfectly in that same spot fully assembled, he just stands on top instead of looking like he's down inside the ship.

When resting on the ground, the ship only sits on one round 4-peg piece, so it's wobbly, but the piece is at the center of gravity of the ship. The large pieces and simple construction make it pretty durable so it doesn't break apart easily.

I did have some trouble with the decals and might call customer service to see if I can get a new set - they came kind of curled at the edges and therefore when applied, they keep curling up. Just a tip on decals - wash the lego parts with some soapy water and dry, then put the decals on before assembling. This will keep finger oils off the parts and they'll stick better.

Overall, if you need a "bad guy" ship or just want a moderate-low priced set, this is a good choice.

This fun little set is quick to assemble and fairly durable. The wings rotate and flex. 139 pieces. Includes 2 minifigs.

Recipient is nine years old and a skilled LEGO builder; it took him 20 minutes to build the entire set independently. More durable than the Hyena Droid Bomber, thank heavens.

Fun for play.

I bought this for $15 and for that price, you can't go wrong. It has a variable position wing that rotates and bends, which is nice, but also a bit flimsy. The rest of the craft is quite sturdy and well designed. For a child, it can be played with, but watch those wings - because of their ability to rotate and bend, it may fall off during play. As for a display piece, it is ok. It doesn't come with landing gears or a stand, but it does rest on 1 clear round cylinder piece that is strategically placed in the center of gravity of the craft.

This is a great set, as a lot of people I really enjoy clone figures and this imperial pilot looks amazing, of course R2-Q2 looks great too but this is just R2-D2 in grey. The ship was bigger that I expected, but its a really nice toy, it has a very nice dark look, according to the imperial fleet in the original star wars. I'm giving 4 stars not for the toy itself which deserves 5 stars, but for the whole thing including its packaging (check next comment).

COMMENT ABOUT PACKAGING FOR LEGO: Lego has always done a very nice job with their packaging, bags come labeled with numbers, capes and other cloths come in little paper packages and the instructions couldnt be more acurate. But what about the stickers? Some people really hate stickers on lego toys, but more than that, is worst when the stickers come with all other items in the box and they just get a lot of damage and get wrinkled, so just out of the box the stickers are pretty much useless. I'm pretty sure that Lego will come out with a very nice idea to protect the stickers.

A good set for collectors of anything Star Wars. Lego's sets on the Star Wars theme is always an interesting build.

This was the first LEGO Star Wars set I ever bought. Since then, I have been collecting many more, and I must say, that this set does not disappoint! I like both the pilot minfigure, and the droid minfigure, and the overall set is nice. For its size (which isn't that big), the price for it is not bad. I like that the wings move, for that really makes it more realistic.

not one of the most complex, my 6 year old knocked it out by himself in about an hour or so. He likes it so mission success.

Bought it for a 5 years old. He likes the more complicated model but not at the 300 pieces skill level yet. This set is perfect. It looks great and he did about 90% of the building by himself.
