'To defeat an enemy, you must know them...'Rebels Season 3 introduces us to one of the best villains: Grand Admiral Thrawn and the tone of the episodes is becoming much darker. Thankfully the ships retain their bright colour schemes.
After Ezra lost the Phantom Mark I, an old Separatist shuttle becomes the Phantom Mark II, after Sabine gives it a paint job. This set captures the small, colourful ship in excellent detail even if it is through the use of 12 stickers.
The build is fun and unchallenging, using an accurate colour scheme and managing to get the unusual shape right. The proportions are a bit off: the shuttle is too small compared to the minifigures and the cockpit should seat two, but it's a sturdy model that looks good on display or perfect for role play. The only slight problem is that the landing legs are not strong enough to hold the ship up very well and they move around a lot.
The minifigures are incredible. Grand Admiral Thrawn is a standout, with detailed torso and face printing. The blue used is a good shade and his red eyes aren't too bright. Kanan is just as good with a new hair piece that incorporates his eye shield. Underneath he has two expressions with his now blind white eyes. Finally Chopper is included and has his own spot on the ship.
This is another great Rebels model from Lego and a colourful addition to a Star Wars collection!

Good set, not enough bang for the buck!The set itself is pretty accurate to the second phantom from the Star Wars: Rebels Season 3 and it contains 2 unique first appearance figures in Thrawn and Blind Kanen.
The set was simple and fun to assemble also the mini-figures increase play-ability as they are unique.
For the amount you get in the box I would have put this as a £20 set, the £39.99 price tag for such a small set was rather steep when you consider the Naboo Duel set which has 3 good Minifigures and a decent amount of scenery for £20.
As far as the set goes its design is pretty decent and it can loosely link up to the Ghost ship however their is no room for chopper inside the Phantom which was disappointing.
Overall I think this would have been a very good set for £20 but its £40 price tag leaves it feeling rather empty and a bit of non-event. It is as if Lego are trying to just capitalize on a fan favorite character with Thrawn.

Neat Set, Appalling PriceA nice little set with some decent play features, but I imagine the price will put many off.
At £40 for 269 pieces the price per piece ratio is pretty bad.
Even with the inclusion of two rare and desirable minifigures it's too much, and its a shame to see Thrawn finally released in Lego form only to come in such an overpriced set, (coincidence)?

Great Set with a Minor InaccuracyFinally I have the set that I had waited months for, the brand new Phantom with my character from the Star Wars Rebels TV show, Grand Admiral Thrawn. The set was a very fun build despite the large abundance of stickers in the set. The ship looks great on display next to all of my other Star Wars Rebels sets. Despite the ship, the minifigures are what really drive up the value of the set. Starting off with least exciting of the three minifigures is Chopper (C1-10P) which is a great minifigure, but since I already had one, he wasn't that exciting for me to get in this set. My second favorite of the minifigs included in this set is the brand new blind version of Kanan Jarrus which matches how he looks in season three of Star Wars Rebels. Kanan has some awesome printing and he has an awesome brand new exclusively molded hair/visor piece that looks so good and really completes the figure. Finally, we have the one and only Grand Admiral Thrawn which looks so accurate to the TV show despite one small detail. That one detail is Thrawn's Imperial rank insignia plaque on his torso. The rank plaque shows the rank of admiral rather than grand admiral which is highly inaccurate to the TV show. He is also referred to as only an admiral on the box which leads me to think that the figure was based off of early concept art for the character. For me who is someone who likes attention to detail, this flaw really kind of bothers me, even more so now that I actually have the set. I am surprised that not many other people have commented on Grand Admiral Thrawn's torso print. Perhaps LEGO may release an updated version of Thrawn with an accurate torso print, but until then we must wait and watch, and we find our redesigned Thrawn minifig, and we will find it, we shall turn it from an obstacle to an asset. I just had to put that Thrawn reference in there. Nevertheless, Thrawn was a great addition to my collection of Imperial officers. Overall this set is great and if it weren't for that minor inaccuracy, I would've rated the set a lot higher. I hope found my review to be very helpful in your decision of whether or not you might want this set.
