Good set for those who may have missed...Firstly, as an adult collector, this set offers limited value (unless you missed the previous incarnation of the desert skiff). I already had two of the 2013 versions and set aside the Jabba's Sail Barge, this set didn't really bring anything 'fresh and new' to the scene.
That being said, (collector and display gripes aside) this is still a very worthy set. It is a fun little build (and slightly different from previous versions) and has very subtle differences; none of which make it a deal breaker.
However, returning to the target audience this is a GREAT SET. For parents, this is a worthwhile purchase. The build is simple enough for younger builders and will give them a decent amount of time absorbed in it.
Beyond the build itself, it DOES have a solid play value. I am always reviewing these sets from the 'play and imagination' value. This set DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. With Chewbacca, Han vs Boba Fett and the Guard, this set really does enable the young player to use their imagination in re-creating scenes and their own stories. I always look to see whether you would need another set in order to create a fun story; here you can do so with this set alone.
For the parent, this is a VERY worthwhile set to purchase.
Positives: Excellent balance of minifigures. Good Solid build. Provides fun and sparks imagination.
Negatives: Not really any in isolation, but many might consider this too much of a rehash. Although to be honest that's hardly a negative.

5 years finallyI have always loved the desert skiff but this one is the best you have ever made that looks like it just came from the movie! Great job Lego!
