This isn't a bad set, especially considering the target audience, but sadly I still can't pull myself to recommend it. (the only reason why it gets a "good" overall rating is because of the fact that this is aimed at young kids) This is a rare instance where I think the secondary build is better in it's execution than the main one. The ground build had nice coloring, detail, and playability, with the turret head being able to spin around and even fire projectiles via the disk shooter. You can also angle the guns on the turret up and down. The ability to take off canisters from it as well helps with playability. The X-Wing however, is where the set suffers. The only main problem in my opinion is the cockpit piece, which looks quite horrible and is very jarring. If they could have designed the Starfighter to be able to use the proper piece, it would have made such a big difference. The fact that this X-Wing can't house R2 even though he is included is also a minor issue. The printed pieces are great though, and the wings look good for the scale. The minifigures are great in this set. Luke looks very proper and has the older helmet design and his lightsaber. You also get R2, and a regular stormtrooper for ground battles. In conclusion, this is a mixed bag of a set. It isn't bad, or by any means a waste of money, but some poor execution in the X-Wing design keeps this set from reaching it's potential. For kids, this should be fine though, as they probably won't take as much of an issue with the problems.
Perfect for an 8 year old to do sole
As a set to inspire and engage young fans into building with LEGO bricks this is a fantastic introduction, albeit a little on the pricey side, and AFOLs with children will garner immense pleasure from watching their little ones build a set all on their own. However fans looking for an accurate representation of a T65-B Starfighter would be better off looking at last year's 75218 X-wing Starfighter.
With an extremely quick build, keeping the bare essentials of what an X-wing and Death Star turbolaser look like, this set does a somewhat decent job. For adult builders and collectors, what's obviously missing is the satisfaction of an intricate build and a detailed finished model. This set will certainly appeal to 4-year-olds, but adult Star Wars fans may feel that it's not their cup of bantha milk.
