Not so diverse in colors. Mainly dark bluish gray parts plus some in black, light bluish gray, red, trans red and trans black.

There is one interesting part, because of color.

Technic axle 4 studs long in red. Technic axles in colors other than black and gray are rather rarely included in sets by LEGO. Here we have one in red color. This axle in red color was released in 4 old Technic and Reacers sets from 2001, 2002 and 2005 then retired to shows again in three sets this year and last year. One exclusive in 2015 and one in Technic and one in Nexo Knights this year. So it is very interesting to see this part in polybag set. It is rather unusual to have rare parts in polybag.

This set is mini representation of set 75104, so it don’t resemble true Kylo Ren’s shuttle from the film very much. But as a promotional item and a polybag set it is quite nice. Grab it if you find it in nice price.

Nice review! The way the landing ramp comes down is adorable and much more accurate than the big version! I'm gonna make a version of this in black with moveable wings.

The red axle will no longer be rare. TLG introduced new color coding for axles to make them even easier to find/identify. So I believe that red and yellow will now be standard colors for certain axle lengths.
