I got this set at Target for $3.99, along with a few Harry Potter and City minis.

The bag.

The Back doesn't have China on it and I am glad!

All the parts.

Little instruction booklet.

The cruiser itself. You know, the back looks pretty nice. The only thing that is not very accurate is the binoculars. The "real" cruiser has 2 sticks up there.

Extra parts.

Bonus.

What we get from the set i:

+ Accurate little model
+ A few dark red parts
+ High playability and easy build

- Upper part with a binoculars is not too accurate
- No minifigures, at least they should have included one out of scale, like in the calendar

Thanks for reading,

Alex.

Nice review, although I would add that with the back engines, since they are a little fragile, the model isn't very swooshable. I know, a small point, but isn't swooshability what makes minis fun?  :wink:

Probably, but swooshability depends on the speed of your hand  :tongue:

I think this is maybe the best of the big ships in a bag.

I had really high hopes for this set when I first saw it. I hadn't opened and built this set myself but the other day a friend at work had one on his desk at work. I found this set very underwhelming and way too small. I know it's a mini set but it looked way too small compared to some of the other minis.

Thanks for the review, although I think this is a pretty lame set. Not really accurate and it's just too small. I'd rather spend my money on another mini.
