Looks amazing on the shelf
Wings use a technic/normal brick technique that makes them very sturdy
Nothing special in the minifigure department - Not even printed Stormtrooper Legs.
Not a whole lot of playability. There are empty spaces inside that you can't get to.
Use of lots of White Brick, Arched 1x6x2 with curved top (full arch) instead of two 1 x 6 x 3 with curved top (half arch)
reducing the usability of those pieces elsewhere(Sorry, pet peeve).
The ultimate in display models. Big, beautiful, and impressive. I'm renaming it the Diva. Once you take it off the shelf to play with it and you have to fiddle with two cranks to move the wings, you have to fumble with the detachable landing gear (and it still falls forward when landed) and Luke and Darth have to ride in the cockpit making the flight from Endor seem more like a road trip in a Pinto, you begin to long for the less impressive but more play friendly 7166.
