Bombs Away!This is the first Lego Star Wars set in a long while (since the Republic Frigate) where I feel that the £100 price tag is justified. The prices of Star Wars sets are steadily increasing and are getting into the realms of 'not worth it' any more, which is becoming more and more disappointing. However, this certainly isn't the case here. This set looks amazing, has some good minifigs and interesting features.
The set itself looks fantastic and is quite large. The interior is spacious and allows for great playability with the minifigs. The bombing feature and missiles work excellently, and the bombing feature itself makes for a fun and interesting build. The colour scheme looks amazing and as far as I can tell, the overall build resembles the actual craft accurately. The only slight niggle I have is that the ball turrets can't move side-to-side, which is a little annoying, but not a major problem.
The minifigs are equally great. The pilots have extremely detailed torsos, legs and helmets. Holdo is a nice minifig. I can't help feel like an extra Resistance trooper or crew member would have been a nice addition so you could fully crew the Bomber. Maybe Lt Connix. Or some alien minifig.
Overall, this set is well worth the price and looks stunning. Like a proper Rebel piece of kit. All I can say is: when are we getting a Dreadnought to destroy?

A Strong Start to a New WaveI wasn't planning to buy any new sets from the LSW theme until the movie came out, but this I could not resist. It does not disappoint.
The set looks excellent on display and has a great range of play features. The minifigures too are excellent, though an extra crew member would have been nice to fully kit out the craft, as nature intended. There are six seats but only five dudes!
This set isn't too hard to build and could be and good one to give to the budding Master Builder in your home to let them try out some different things they might not have before. The range of parts is also fairly unique, with some excellent printed pieces. I'm not a fan of stickers but the high quality designs are worth the pain!
The price is a little on the high side but you get your money's worth.
One awesome-looking ship bristling with weapons and crew compartments, five awesome minifigures and a handful of neat accessories. The minifugures really are a strong set; the bomber crew and Poe have some neat suits and head prints, and the helmets are UNBELIEVABLE. Holdo is unfortunately the weak link and could really have done with some leg printing to go with her good torso, head and hair, but this is a very minor complaint and I'm glad to have her on board.
I hope you found this extremely tired review helpful! If in doubt, take the plunge and buy this set!!

We need more sets like thisThe build of this set was great, did not bore myself at all while constructing this.
the overall thing is just packed with play features, and though i do find it a shame nothing can aim in a horizontal way, looking at this build it is just not hard to just imagen it could do just that.
First times i had a few issues with the bombing projectiles getting a bit stuck, but somehow after 2 runs of all bombs trough the system it now just works flawless.
The interior, for having such a cramped space is done really nicely, everything just fits perfect.
Solid build, nice to pose to, just everything i expected it to be when i saw a review saying this was the best "the last jedi"-set out there.
Though at the moment of posting this review i can not compare it with anything else from the last jedi, i can simply believe that being the case.
Further, nice figures, like really, all of those in one set...wow...
and as extra, finally ! finally they made a nice play set that actually hides those bigger arrow shooting canons and actually integrates them inside the actual craft.
It is so good i even wonder if i should wish for an UCS model of this, because, even though the overall movie design would fit a UCS lego model well, it was just so well done and it just invites to play and to pose so well, that i am not sure if an UCS model would really outclass this one.
Overall, impressive....most impressive.

Bombs away!After reading some reviews i decided to grab this Lego while on sale. No regrets! It is a very nice ship. While building it I had some concerns about how fragile it would be, the bottom pannels are just help by blue technique pegs and a few normal brick to brick connections. And i was concenrned about how balanced it would be while on display staing straight. So far the side panels stay in place without a problem, and the ship stands up well balanced. Wouldnt take much to tip it thought.
As for the rest it is awesome. The rocket propellors give it an awesome look. It has a button that releases the bombs one at the time, and buttons to release the lasers. It will be most likely one of the most played Lego beacause of the heavy bomb drops. It has 5 figures and space for all of them inside. I was a bit disappointed with the fact that there is no weapon holder. All 5 come with blasters, and they dont fit in the turret with them, but there is enough space inside to put a small Lego box as weapon cache. The turrets tilt when you tilt the ship, this alone makes it awesome, nice realistic intergalactic living room space fight!
Defenetly a nice add to a collection.
