There are barely any play features and for such an expensive set is insane
Pros: This set is very swooshable and has a good set of figures. The updated battle droids are also nice. This set displays well and has some nice features like the retracting landing gear. So-so: This set is the same price as the 75042 version from just a couple years ago...and when finished is about the same size...but they give you less 66 less parts. Not a real step up in value. Cons: Stickers. This set really feels unnecessary so close to the last release. Almost identical. Really should have used one of the yet unreleased vehicles from E3 instead. Also the pilot spot for the battle droid does not actually seat the droid well and has trouble closing while it is in there. Overall if you missed 75042 you will like this version. If not wait for a sale. I got it 25% off the week it released in a retail store. 2019 is proving a low creativity year for Lego Star Wars...this set kinda shows the lack of effort.
Overall, this set just feels… boring to me. The build is alright but it's quite small which is a little disappointing as the in-universe bombers are pretty large. Furthermore, the gunship has pretty lame play features – an opening cockpit and basic shooting features. The minifigure selection is also weak – two rehashed 2013-14 era minifigures and two new battle droids doesn't really stand out, making for an uninteresting set overall.
This is certainly my favourite rendition of the craft but it does not seem considerably better than 75042 Droid Gunship from 2014. I like the new 'cockpit' module and the external detail is superb, although an updated design feels unnecessary so soon after the last version was released. In addition, the price of £54.99 or $49.99 is far too expensive. On that basis, I would recommend this set to those who missed its predecessor but only with a significant discount.
As an update it certainly ticks a lot of boxes and fans of the Clone Wars era will no doubt love the improvements made on its predecessor, but the £54.99 price tag and simplistic build might be enough to put off the more casual LEGO Star Wars fan.
