Not completely sold on the set. It looks good when displayed, but there are too much gaps and holes everywhere if you look closely. The minifigures fit the set very well and are spot on, but I wonder why Dark Vador misses its arm printings. It lacks some details, for exemple on the weapons. But for children this may be a great playing set, with a wow effect as it's largeand nice when the wings are unfolded.
I actually think this is a pretty decent set, and similar to the latest X-wing and TIE Fighter we recently reviewed here on TBB, the proportions, and the finished details are quite accurate to the source material, and the price is fairly reasonable for a set with 660 pieces. My only other complaint is the stud shooters, which the designers simply slapped on the sides of the cockpit. I think that LEGO could easily have incorporated spring-loaded shooters into the wing's bases where the actual blaster cannons are.
Reducing the complexity and associated cost of various important vehicles was undoubtedly sensible and 75301 Luke Skywalker's X-wing Fighter clearly demonstrates how brilliant such models can be. 75302 Imperial Shuttle appears less remarkable, although the famous shape looks magnificent and certainly improves upon earlier designs which have followed the same approximate scale.
75302 Imperial Shuttle is so nearly a fantastic set. The build is really enjoyable and quite involved. Pockets of the final design look really, really good: in particular, the back engines, the sides of the fuselage, the cylindrical components and the top of the cockpit. However, it's let down by the frankly awful design of the lower cockpit, and the failure to update the thickness of the top fin feels like a missed opportunity. Throw in the fact there are no exclusive minifigures in the set, and its appeal starts to diminish.
