Since we first saw the pictures of this mini set I knew I was going to love it! Now I have it in my hands, I think this is one of the best mini sets we have had so far!

I don't include the Brickmaster sets in that statement as they get much higher part counts. :classic:

The bag looks great showing of the set very well!

The parts are good for a mini, with the part count coming in at 45 and 3 of that being extras.

The instuctions showing the underside.

The main Hull/body of the droid.

The Wings/legs.

The fantastic completed set! :wub:

It does not quite look right in walking mode but for only 42 parts I think we can forgive that.

The 3 parts left.

The full set.

As I said at the start of the review this is a amazing set for a mini. The look of the vulture droid has been recreated near perfectly.

42 Lego parts have never looked so good in my opinion! :laugh:

Great review. I think this is the best Mini of the year, but that's not saying much :grin:

IMO TLGs finest mini. It's so innovative and clever.

I agree, I'm not much of a mini-fan, but I really like this one. I think it's pretty cleverly designed for a mini, especially with the flight and walking modes. Thanks for sharing this review mutley! :thumbup:

Nice review. I think the set is actually fairly simple; it uses the same techniques as the System one from 7660; but it works beautifully even at a smaller scale. Definitely  one of the better MINIs of the last few years.
