Minifig: 10/10 Love it. Exclusive for this set.
Final: 8/10 - Good set, with a great minifig. Could have maybe used another fig plus a blaster for the officer.

Great review! (The same thing I said in your other two reviews  :tongue: )
I wish that LEGO would still have all printed pieces instead of some printed pieces and many stickers.  :hmpf_bad:

According to Peeron (again  :tongue: ), the MSRP price of the Flash Speeder was $10.00 USD. I don't know how much it cost in the Netherlands, though.

EDIT: I voted average for this set.

Thanks. I really hate those damn stickers. I keep all of my LEGO in the attic and I've noticed that some of the stickers have started to come off. So when I press them flat again, they break off :cry_sad:

Thanks for another good review  :classic:

This is a nice set. It's one of the few sets i got on my only over-seas holiday to Aussie. Looking back, i probably over-paid for it, but hey, no regrets, right  :tongue:

Good job on the review 'mischa'. Seeing your review makes me nostalgic of the early days of SW sets. I wasn't able to get this set back then, so its nice to see someone make a review of this one. This was, IMO, this is one of the better designed sets back then, considering the fewer assortment of pieces.
