Staff Review:

Selling to kids is a lot different than selling to adults. There's a limited window for that customer, where they are coming in and leaving the market. At the same time, there are new kids coming in right behind that customer, looking to pick up the hobby. That means that re-releasing a set every few years is trying to make sure that the new batch of kids can find something recognizable to purchase... and regardless of how we feel about those prequel movies or cartoons, they are more popular with kids than they were with the adults that grew up with the original movies. Of course, all of that being said... there has got to be some more popular stuff to release than Stumbles McSpiderwalker here, last seen in the 2013 set of the same name, 75016 Homing Spider Droid, which it feels like I just reviewed a couple of months...(read more)

    Pro: I like the dirty mini figs! Woot.

    Con: I didn't like the build, conveyor belt and the claw doesn't really work that well.

    Comments: I got the set as a bday gift, I wouldn't own the set otherwise. I thought the build was boring. I plan to strip the set down and use it for a MOC in the near future. The dirty mini aliens were my fav plus you get two of them.

    Pros: Great part selection with some rare pieces and colours. Fun play features and a quick, simple build. Just 30 minutes with a 3 year old assisting.

    Cons: The Minifigs are a little too unique IMO. The crane is a bit top heavy and it's winch is a tad too tight.

    Comments: The only reason I bought this sets is because it went on clearance for $25, I'm not a fan of the dirty spots on the figs as it makes them far less usable. At that price it's a great parts pack with a load of useful pieces. My son and I just finished building it and he's been enjoying it all morning and the only problem he's had is with the crane. If they had weighed the bottom down or attached it to the compactor it would be much better. I rated this set a 6, but it would probably have been an 8 if the figures were the normal variety.
