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.

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.
