Welcome to my first review. Today I am reviewing the Arc 170 Starfighter.

To start, Unfortunately the box and instructions are long gone so I am using images of Peeron. The box is an average size with the usual Darth Vader Mask in the corner.

Fortunately no sticker sheet in sight.
Pieces of Interest
There are some rare printed pieces:

Thank You TLC for including 3 clone pilots which is the first set they are featured in the only other being the V-Wing. Also included is an astromech droid which is included in only a few other sets including the original B-Wing. The pilots also have back printing!!!

One of the best play features in this set are the wings which can go up and down just like the X-wing.

There is also a nice cannon on the back which swivels so you can blast those droids apart.
And a shoot that can drop bombs to the battlefield!!
The build is excellent and not a lot of repeats. Also the ship including the wings are very strong having never broken on me even under pressure.
Design: 8/10 This set is well designed but could have been better.
Build: 9/10 Good as I said earlier but some things were repetitive.
Playability: 7/10 Great playability.
Minifigs: 9/10 Would be 10 if they had forgotten about one the clone pilots and added oddball. Droid good.
Parts: 7/10 Good selection of parts. No seriously rare but good printed pieces.
Price: 9/10 really really cheap for a set this size and quantity.
Overall: 10/10 A must have sets for any collector. Greta detail and great features. Good minifigures and nice colours. Nothing bad.

The set itself is pretty good. I'm not a fan of the elastic bands (tend to stretch out) but the printed pieces make up for that. The wings and bomb functions on the ARC-170 make the ship really stand out.
Thank you for sharing

I wonder how similar in structure the clone wars ARC-170 is going to be...
