Final Model

Here's the workhorse of the Imperial fleet, in all its Mini-sized glory! It's ready to chase down your tiny lil' Rebel ships, and disintegrate them.

Last Words

Pros: Awesome detail, and captures the ship's distinctive wedge design quite well.
Cons: The dark gray pieces stand out a bit, and they really shouldn't. Uniform gray or white would've been better, but that would've made the set look a bit boring to the average joe.
Overall: The original Star Destroyer set was massive, and the UCS one's even bigger! Don't want to break the bank? Settle for this tiny model that looks great on your desk.

This is probably my least favourite of all the mini sets. The proportions are all wrong and it should be longer imo.

Thanks for the review.

Yea the proportions seem to be wrong but what I like about this mini is how they used the binoculars for a gun (I think :blush: ).

Great review!

I thought it was common knowledge that the bridge on this set is back to front.

Should look like this:
