I never bothered to open one of these when they were released in the previous lines. I just was not impressed by any description or picture I ever saw.
This thing is outstanding! I finally opened one for my son because he wanted one so badly, and when I put it together for him I was hit in the face with coolness. Now I want to have one opened next to the very few other ships that I have deemed to be worthy of opening: The Republic Gunship, and the Sith Starfighter. I was able to get a second 2-pack of the camoflaged battle droids and I will likely display those in the newer one. But I also want an EI version to open (I did get one to keep sealed) to display with OOM-9.
