Just got this set in the mail yesterday and it took about 6 hours to build. I have to say I was pretty hyped about this set and it does not disapoint. I know some people are on the fence whether to buy this set so here are a couple of pros and cons.
-The design of the AT-OT is fantastic. IDK what it is but the pictures don't do it justice and IMHO I believe it looks better than the new AT-TE when fully loaded with clone troopers.
-Design for dropship and mechanism that connects to your walkers is ingenious and works pretty well(for the AT-OT.)
-They finally gave us enough pilots to pilot our ships
-It is massive when completed which does make you feel better about spending all that money.
-Color on dropship and stickers are pretty sweet. I am going to need to make one of my gunships with this color scheme.
-Overall it was a fun build. Has a lot of system and techniqe pieces and was a little challenging at some points.
-Bags are numbered.(Bags with number 1 are for AT-OT, Bags with number 2 are for dropship.)
-The gunship is a little flimsy in the area connecting the cockpit and handle area. (But still alot better than the star destroyer.)
-Price tag. I think it should have come with more clones or Ayala Secura(She is seen in Episode III next to an AT-OT on Felucia.)
-It is compatable with the new AT-TE but you do need to mod the handle and it is a lot harder to connect than the AT-OT because it does not have a way to keep the handle up.(unless I missed something and I'm sure there is a way to mod this.)
Well thats all I have. If anyone has any other questions about the model just ask.
