Pros: New trooper hats are accurate, speeder is pretty cool
Cons: New goggles are too big and only look good resting on the hats. As expected, flick-fire missiles are worthless.
Comments: My biggest gripe with this set is that this is at least the 3rd version of an Echo trooper we've seen, and on the shelf with another version no less (
7749 Echo Base)! Makes consistency an issue in my collection and MOC's. The speeder is well-built and kinda cool, but light on the play features. Not as nice out-of-the-box as the imperial Hoth pack, nor is it a great parts pack, but it'll populate your trenches.

Pros: 2 new minifig torsos (pilot/trooper); new print for pilot helmet; new Hoth trooper helmet design; useful white/gray parts pack
Cons: ridiculously large goggles; meh brick-built gun; same old blasters are getting boring
Comments: The new Hoth trooper helmet is a mixed bag due to the ginourmously out of scale goggles, but the new torso printings are great and Zev's helmet print is a welcome addition. Gun/heat-ray thing is so-so, but decent parts. Given my niche interests, would have preferred an all pilots or pilots/astromechs pack.
