All in all, a great build and display piece that can easily be a play set for any small child of sorts. I love the build, it’s my first imperial shuttle. Other than the build it’s self I have one small issue that I believe is more on the factory side, which is my pilot did not have legs, but instead had a black slant piece facing up with 4 studs? I was curious and looked on the back of the instructions with all the pieces included and I did not see any of said piece, it showed a gray piece but not a pitch black one? Just a little upset that I spent $70 on this set but didn’t get a complete mini figure, but otherwise great set! At least Darth Vader wasn’t missing his legs like when he didn’t have the high ground! :)

Hey there, thanks for the review! We heard trouble was afoot, so please make sure to request free replacement legs for your pilot over at http://LEGO.build/BricksPieces-BV.
It's been a long time waiting for the day Lego would make another Classic Imperial Shuttle. I just received it. I know all about it. I've seen it online. I've seen it being built by those who have reviewed it and build it live.
Yes it's smaller, no you can't and shouldn't compare it to other shuttles that were made by Lego.
I'm just happy that Lego finally made another one, midsized, and affordable. I don't own one,
so should you. Perfect for kids to play with. Perfect for displaying it, Classic Shuttle to behold. My prayers were answered. And now I'm going to take my time building this one. No rush.
This is my first imperial shuttle I have ever owned. The cons: no control panel for the pilot, on certain angles the gap under the cockpit is big, wished there was one more mini figure with the set. Also no arm printing Vader. Pros: pretty close in appearance to the actual shuttle although the scale is a bit off but it’s expected to due to the price point. Cheaper way to get Darth Vader and a shuttle if u don’t own any previous shuttle. Looks great on a stand in flight mode. Easy to put Luke and Vader inside the shuttle. Overall the build was enjoyable. The figures were not bad. For the price just wished they had another figure or the arm printing Vader. Still recommend to anyone who doesn’t have any previous shuttle and would like to get one on a budget.
I ordered this set immediately because I lost my chance to own an imperial shuttle in the past so this is my first. I would highly recommend it to anyone who don't already own one. It has clean lines, durable to handle when built where my 3 year old daughter runs around with it while pretending to fly it, and stunning to look at when it is displayed on a stand in flight mode. Like everyone else, I wish the chin underneath the cockpit was cleaner and the set included a few more minifigs. A red guard and a stormtrooper would have been nice additions. Otherwise, I love it and display it proudly.
