Well, there you go HJR. You shamed FBTB to putting it on the front page.

I actually like the use of all types of wheels. Anything that recontexualizes pieces is great in my book. I'd rather see that than another
new mold, piece, etc. I think it fits just fine on this model.
It's kind of a weird ship though. The fore and aft looks like they should be switched (maybe that is because of the trans blue bars in the front, which on official LEGO models usually denotes energy emission, as if from an engine, and it appears to have trans blue 2x2 circular bricks in the aft engines... kinda goofy). The figs are so-so.
For me, the only moderately exciting Old Republic set for me is 9500 Sith Fury-class Interceptor.
