I'm pretty sure my feelings about Episode I as a movie are fairly well established around here. Spoiler alert... not good. That being said, one of the things I think that Episode I did fairly well was setting up a lot of interesting and fairly unique designs, especially compared to some of the stuff we got later. Naboo was simply gorgeous, with an aesthetic that was fairly diverse and definitely unique compared to the rest of Star Wars that we saw.The Naboo starfighter was an fairly interesting ship, that unfortunately only a player for about 10 minutes in the movie (though spread across far longer, because everything was). We didn't get to see a whole lot, other than the fact that the Naboo never felt the need to install parental controls, lockout programs, keys, or any sort of protections on their military hardware. Well, that and that they valued style over...(read more)

Pros:I really like the selctions of mini figs. I also like the build of the set.
Cons: I agree withe the other ppls: No track and the Locomotive would be difficult (not impossible) to motorize while keeping the same look.
Comments: This is my first LEGO train i was expecting a little more but it was a fun build. I don't have a city for the train to go around or tracks for the train to sit on so it is just sitting in a display case ATM. The TLG did a good job on making it look exactly like the trian in the Toy Story movie. The scene in the movie with the train was one of my favorite scene.

Pros: It really captures the set from the movie well. It's proportions are off just enough that it feels and looks like a toy, not a scale model. Good selection of minifigs/characters.
Cons: No track and the Locomotive would be difficult(not impossible) to motorize while keeping the same look.
Comments: This is my first LEGO train(unless my daughter's DUPLO trains count) and I'm going to have to admit that I am hooked. I never realized how large they are, for whatever reason I was thinking the set was going to be about 2/3 the size it actually is. I don't usually pay that much attention to piece counts, I look more at the size of the model you get for the price and even though I paid about 1/2 price for this set I don't think I would have been disappointed at all if I had paid close to full price.

Pros: a unique addition to LEGO trains; some nice printed parts
Cons: locomotive is a bit flimsy; motor incorporation w/ loco difficult; no rail included
Comments: This set has a fun cartoony/western aesthetic; a few pieces of straight rail for display would've been welcome; the intricate wheel assemblies of the loco will make adding a motor (PF, 9v, etc.) tough to do without compromising the original design.
