Staff Review:

There are currently two different Batman sets available that have the words "cycle chase" in the name... one last year and this year's movie offering, 70902 Catwoman Catcycle Chase. The other set is lacking in Catwoman, but the cycle is suspiciously similar. It's in the pipeline to get a review once we wrap up the LEGO Batman Movie sets, so eventually I'll be able to draw a few more comparisons, but it wouldn't shock me to learn it's the same designer. I wasn't sure what to make of this set when I decided to review it... I've owned every one of the Catwoman sets except the 66 Batcave (though I have purchased the Catwoman figure from that set), but I'd be hard pressed to remember any of them. I remember them usually having those absurdly oversized sport bikes, and Batman in some sort of small vehicle that makes me wonder why...(read more)

    I purchased this set last week, so while it is till fresh in my mind...

    Pros: New Jedi! :D Nice new printed windshield and the large gear piece.

    Cons: I was really bummed by the price, $90 CAD with tax for about 380 pieces. Large visible gaps in cock pit. System Scale instead of Minifigure Scale.

    Final Comments: For set collector it's a must. For builder it gives a few new pieces. For everyone else is sadly over priced and lacking in playability for set this "large" and pricy.

    Pros:
    -a good source of many large pieces: wedge plates, tiles with studs only on the edges, the cockpit assembly is HUGE
    -the Shuttle's printed canopy, which is very sleek and multi-purposeable
    -the engine assemblies are impressive and include hard-to-find 2x2 round trans-light blue bricks
    -the T-6 has a cute little kick-stand that enables it to stay balanced upright when on display (this feature is not evident on the box or in the instructions)
    -the wing assembly rotates smoothly around the rest of the sip, but the click-positioning of older sets is sorely missed
    -the minifigs...although of course they hike the overall price, Shaak Ti and Saesee Tiin are just incredible, and the metallic silver lightsaber hilts are the best yet

    Cons:
    -Anakin and Obi-Wan *sigh*
    -the large number of stickers, which is especially bad in this set, since the T-6 is already so bland, omitting the stickers is almost as bad as having to deal with putting them on
    -the cockpit...they could have done so much with this, especially with the special canopy, but no, they fill in half of it with solid bricks, and add enough tiles to the remaining space to only let two minifigs sit diagonally from one another
    -the price point, which I know has been a matter of much contension here and on other AFOL sites

    Comments:
    -the T-6 was the set of the January line I was most looking forward to, but I cannot help being a little disappointed by it. The ship has a very cool design, but not one that would be hard to duplicate (using pieces from any decent collection) for a much lower price and while streamlining out the cons of the official set.
