Surprisingly enjoyable buildI will admit I purchased this set simply because the only place to purchase lego in my city is Walmart, and this was the most challenging looking set available (along with Kylo Ren’s TIE Fighter, which I also purchased, incidentally). I was dealing with a lot of stress, and building is one of my escapes.
I was pleasantly surprised upon building it that it actually has a fair amount more detail than I was initially expecting. While far from a UCS edition, I can honestly say I do hope they release a UCS edition of the U-Wing, because this set was very fun to build.
Even more impressive is the shear size of this model. In flight mode, the wingspan is larger than the MF. I’ll admit, this makes it problematic to display in flight mode, but I will just have to display it in landing mode, or rearrange a few things to display this in flight mode if I really want to.
Well done Lego.

UT-60D U-Wing!Awesome set, solid, functional, and goes great with the Tie Striker.
Personalized a bit more from the lack of fine details, kept me busy for a couple weeks! Little surprised on how many details Lego left out or actually changed not to match any of the ships....
The curved front fuselage, odd looking wedge plate front cows with the yellow grill plate sticking up like a pimple, the two piece looking cockpit (and it's a custom cockpit piece for this set?). Short wobbly engines, short front wings and then those upside down 4x4 dark gray wedge plates underneath on the front sides? All in all though, that is what keeps me addicted to Lego Star Wars models! The Legos just look great for depicting the ships!
Looking forward to an awesome USC set from Lego! Star Bricks, Mirko Soppelsa, has already done one that is a pretty decent looking replica and posted pictures on the web!

A beautiful setI am usually a fan of 'playset' sets with that 'complete' story feel, so to have a set with only one side (heroes and NO villains) usually I find something to critique BUT this is NOT the case.
The build here is fantastic and incredibly good fun that will keep kids amused for probably the best part of 3 hours...followed by hours of subsequent play time. It is relatively complex in places and might need the help of a parent (which is good for us!!) but overall it's a fantastic build.
The play features are strong here and the set definitely has that 'swooshability' that LEGO goes for. The collection of figures (which is a great collection I might add) really complements this set and offers genuine play value. Whilst, as mentioned above, this set doesn't have any antagonists as such, the set has a tremendous play and story value from the adventure prospective. And to be honest, I don't feel any villains would add much here anyway, other than being a token gesture.
As a collector, this set looks fantastic on display and feels a solid and complete set. As a parent, it offers hours of fun for the kids (both in build AND play) and does not require any additional set to make for some inspirational stories.
Overall this is one fantastic set that will appeal to collectors and kids alike.
Positives: The size, the build, the minifigures, the final piece and the 'swooshability!'
Negatives: This is a stretch at best but perhaps it would be better with a larger cargo bay, BUT given the space constraints and part count I couldn't really ask for anything else.

Great Build!The U-Wing was a great build. I wasn't particularly sold on the ship itself when I first saw it released as a LEGO set, but then having seen Rogue One, and the U-Wing in action... I couldn't wait to my hands on this set! They really nailed the dimensions, the swinging wings are really well done and make it seem just like the movie. The cargo/troop space is large enough that you can store all of the included mini-figures (which are super cool) inside, which is a really nice perk for someone who has cats that like to play with the mini-figures when I'm not looking :p It also makes a good base for displaying the model, as it raises it up off the ground well enough to see all the key features. I would imagine the playability for this is set is quite high, being able to transport troops and shoot down those pesky TIEs! Go Rebels!
