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).

Pros: Size, it's huge if you are used to system scale sets.
Cons: Nothing unless you were expecting something to scale with other sets.
Comments: The amount of detail on the truck is amazing and the mechanism for dumping the container is simple but realistic and works very well. The minifigs have long disappeared into my general population but the truck still holds a spot on the shelf. It's a great looking set.

Pros: Appearance, functions, and playability are all great

Comments: This is a great set, even for $50. The build doesn't have even a hint of monotony, 3/4 figs are exclusive, the finished model looks awesome, play features are all excellent. The way the liftarms automatically open the top hatch is especially nifty. Plus, it makes a great parts pack full of hinges, tiles, and all that dark green.
