It's growing on me. I initially thought it looked too similar to the 2009 version, but on second viewing it seems to be elongated and more proportional (apart from the larger bridge/cockpit).

Edit: Turns out the old one is less than 52 cm long, and according to the video (and LEGO's website) the new one is over 62 cm--pretty significant difference/improvement.

Thanks for the comments everyone. I think the biggest thing that this set has going against it is the fact that everyone was expecting it to be UCS. But it's a fine set, and it looks great on display. I've attached a picture below where you can kinda sorta almost see my patented "quick and lazy" display stand made of the trans blue half-cylinder pieces from vader's bacta tank (ignore Benny, he just likes to show off other people's work as his own...), and it's decently stable as a temporary solution. Anyways, will bring you guys more videos when I have something special to show, thanks again!

Looks good, but not $200 good. That price is kinda bonkers. Overall size feels like $150 max. Theres so many tiny pieces that make up that 1700 piece count.
