Recommendation: meh 8 / 10 by mostlytechnic

I really like this little set. It feels like a good Lego value - 450 parts for $30? That's not bad! It's also pretty decent size - big enough to play with and feels big enough to be a $30 Lego set. The part count isn't too inflated with tiny pieces. It has the basic features - steering and fans - but makes them a little extra complex. Lego calls this set an 8+, and that seems ok. Kids may need some help with marrying the deck to the hull, but overall, it's not an overly difficult build. And I'm really looking forward to the B model instructions being released. That looks like a great alternate build.

I recommend this set if you're specifically after some of the rare elements and/or to bolster your orange arsenal. Or if you want to have some fun speeding it around on smooth surfaces (just don't put it on water). The price is actually reasonable, so you should be happy with it, especially if you find it with a discount.

Recommendation: meh by Dimitri

42120 Rescue Hovercraft is a really, really solid set. The finished model is one of the most complete Technic sets to have been released in a long time – there are no gaps or framework exposed; it feels solid and colourful; the functions look excellent when in motion; and the build is very satisfying without being overly complicated (this is aimed at 8+, after all). If it was just that little bit cheaper it would be perfect, but as it stands it's still brilliant. And remember, hovercrafts are awesome, so you really can't go wrong with this one.
