The main reason to purchase the set is for the mini-figures; it includes four: R2-D2, C-3PO, and two Sandtroopers. C-3PO sports a new torso that allows one to see his mechanical/electrical innards at the abdominal opening; he also has printed eyes on his head. The Troopers have sand marks on them, giving them a nice weathered look, and they also have printing on their legs. Dressed in different colored pauldrons, I think these troopers are some of the best Lego has made.
In terms of playability, this is a good set. Escape pods are single-use vehicles and are not given to dogfights or flitting about the galaxy. So the limited plot-line of the movie means kids have to be extra inventive. But the set makes up for this in plenty of mini-figures and just a nifty pod design. Given the assortment of fairly useful parts (curves and conical sections), this is a good value set. And since Lego only seems to offer an escape pod once every decade, well, here's your chance to get away with one.
Overall, this was a good set. Both the swoop bike and the escape pod are relatively simple to build and highly detailed. Both are also extremely durable, which is crucial for younger children. I was disappointed to find that the escape pod was missing a grey hooked attachment piece. However, this part is not essential to the build in general. In terms of mini-figures, this model really excels, as both sandtroopers and the new detailed C-3P0 are all unique to the set.
At 137 pieces, this set is relatively inexpensive, especially considering the 3 unique mini-figures. Also this set would work very well in combination with some other larger sets, specifically the Millennium Falcon 7965, which omits both C-3P0 and R2-D2. All things considered, I would recommend this set, as it is well worth its cheap price.
