I remember having Lego's first version of Anakin's Interceptor (15 years ago) and loved everything about it. It had the starfighter, it had Anakin Skywalker, it had a Vulture Droid. Good times were made. Cut to present day, I'm back into LEGO now, and this set is available again. Being overwhelmed with nostalgia at first glance, I had to get this. My only problem with that old set was you only got an R2-D2 head for the ship, but this set gives you the whole Astromech in all his greatness. I think any kid who likes Star Wars will love flying this thing around and shooting at targets. Adults, like myself, will enjoy having this ship displayed alongside other sets the like the 501st clones. Even if you don't collect LEGO, it's a lot of fun to just place this ship somewhere in your home to show off. My only gripe is that Anakin's torso is the same one from the Mustafar duel set, but the brown tears look more like fabric ripples. Hard to be fooled, but easy to get over. Overall, a cool fun product and it makes me want to watch Revenge of the Sith again. 9/10
75281 Anakin's Jedi Interceptor does improve upon its predecessors in certain regards, most notably across the wings which appear exceptionally accurate. However, these alterations are comparatively insignificant and I think the cockpit has worsened since 2014, particularly inside where space is extremely limited and the minifigure cannot sit up properly.
It's an essential ship from the Star Wars saga, but do you need it in your collection? Not if you have any other version of it; there are no particular improvements this time around, the differences to last time are minor. This is a set for those who don't yet own this particular iteration of the Jedi Starfighter.
