This set is not perfect, but is pretty good nonetheless. This isn't officially a Juniors set, but it basically is one with the large specialized pieces, printed parts, and the "easy start" build design. The main build is the A-Wing, and while I think it captures the overall design pretty well, there should be more detailing as it feels a little incomplete to me. The prints on the model are great though. The second build is very simple but looks cool and is actually rather playable. It not only establishes that this set takes place on Yavin-4, but also gives C3PO something to do, which is great. The minifigures are good as well. As I just mentioned, C3PO is included which is nice, especially for kids who want to get him in a cheap set, but in the context of the set it doesn't make a ton of sense to include him over another rebel figure in my opinion. The A-Wing pilot is very nice and appropriate. This set has a few minor issues, but it is still the cheapest way to get an A-Wing (that isn't a microfighter) since 2006. I would rather pay $15 for this set than the previous A-Wing set which was $40, even though it was a better model. I recommend this set at this price point, and if you have pieces from your own collection to make this build better, it makes this deal ever sweeter.
As an introduction into the galaxy of LEGO Star Wars, 75247 Rebel A-wing Starfighter does what it sets out to do – makes a ship that's sturdy and easy to build whilst still retaining the instantly recognisable outline of the starship it represents.
