    Pros: Exclusive figs, impressive size
    Cons: Impressive Wingspan + Big Guns = Saggy Wings. Flick fire missiles are lame. Also, no landing gear? What gives?

    Pros: great figs if you like pilots and astromechs

    Cons: large wingspan makes for some droop; stickers

    Comments: overall, a fairly accurate representation of the Prequel era ship, but the minifigs were the real draw for me
