Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little bit disapointing When I bought this set I was expecting a little bit more. The minifigures are awesome especially Chopper. The ship is alright but compared to some of the other star wars space ships that have come out its not that great, still overall great minifigures. If this set was a little bit cheaper I would give it a two thumbs up, but I am giving it one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small Surprises While I've been a biased fan of the LEGO Star Wars line since 1999, I have to say that in adulthood I do inspect the products I buy throughout the construction process much more critically than I did in the past. That being said, I felt it was necessary to give the Phantom the credit it is due. The Phantom is considered by some to be a cheap marketing ploy, trying to sell an accessory for a larger set in an effort to promote the larger set itself. While that may be an existing tactic, I really don't mind the separation of the Phantom from the Ghost. I DID wind up purchasing the Ghost, and since its construction the two have been inseparable. However, I often find myself in the LEGO aisle at WalMart contemplating the ramifications of buying a second Phantom merely for the enjoyment of building it. The price at which I purchased the Phantom seemed steep in comparison with sets of similar size, but the value of the money isn't entirely reflected in the quantity or mass of the combined bricks. In fact, I'm quite certain all true LEGO fans have a set that they absolutely adored enough to pay through the nose to get it. So it's undeniable that there's a certain experiential value placed on the set as well. It's a tight-knit set with lots of small parts, good minifigure selections, and overall great design elements. I experimented a little with the geometry of the folding wings, and with the parts selected, it's very hard to perfectly replicate the Phantom's wings from "Rebels" without sacrificing the compact, precise mechanism presented. That it still had room for a small cargo hold and space for Chopper left me happily surprised. When I bought it, I was still dealing with a little remorse because I thought there was no room for a droid on-board, only to have that remorse dashed. The only details I feel detracted from the set were the new spring-loaded missile-launching brick mounted directly on top and the twin barrels on the front. I'm a fan of the spring-brick when it's concealed well enough that it merges perfectly with the design (as with the Advanced TIE prototype and the AT-DP), but the blatant presence of a kinetic component made it hard to enjoy playing with it. I had to be cautious not to launch the missile at inopportune moments. As such I wound up removing the brick and replacing it instead with a solid 1W x 4L x 3H grey brick (Not fancy and not loyal to the show, but it's what I had to work with at the time). Other easily modified detractions were the black connector pegs on the tips of the barrels. The only reason I find this to detract from the set is that they don't match the 4 gun barrels on the Ghost, its direct counterpart, but I can understand the reasoning behind their selection (the lightsaber hilts add another centimeter to each barrel and were longer in proportion to the original from the TV show). Again, it's an easy replacement, but the connector pegs failed to aesthetically unify the sets. Is it fun? Yes Was it a satisfying build? Yes Would I recommend it? Yes Is it a good value for the money? Neutral (I found it to be worth the money, but I value things differently) Would your child enjoy it? If they're a Star Wars fan, yes. Does it stand alone with the wings open? No. At least, not all the time... A stand would be nice. Is it a faithful representation of the TV version? Kinda. It's a faithful representation of the form, but because it's LEGO, it had to be scaled up to include various details, so it also occupies more of the Ghost than in the show. Ultimately, it comes down to an issue of price. For a well-designed, compact set, it's worth it. The intricacies of its production, right down to the selection and physics of the parts, constantly left me impressed. And I feel that's why the price is higher than expected. It's bigger in your hand than it looks on the box. It's fine alone OR as a companion to a larger set. There are many more details than there would appear because it's actually hollow at the core, but it's very sturdy despite this. It's affordable! It epitomizes the adage "Don't judge a book by its cover," and I like it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This set overall fun to build not accurate to the show because only three mini figs can barley fit in it, I think this set should have been released after the show was aired.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit of a con... I had serious reservations about buying this in the first place since I felt that it would have been better to include it in the Ghost set and add twenty dollars to the price. Making it a separate item really only allows Lego to squeeze an extra few dollars out of us. As it was I wanted to have the complete set and so bit the bullet in the hope that they would work nicely together for my daughter who is a big Rebels fan. Unfortunately that was not the case. The Build: The ship itself is a very straightforward, nothing special, quick build, exactly what you would expect from a ship that is essentially a glorified escape pod/scout ship. The folding wings are a nice touch if a little simplistic. The box recommends the build for a 7-12 year old, my five year old finished it in little over an hour so it's not exactly rocket science. Figures: Nice, well done figures. It is nice to get Ezra with his cadet helmet and Chopper is a nice little figure. It would have been nice however if the ship had somewhere for Chopper to go. There is what appears to be a cargo compartment in the middle but you have to pull the roof off to get at it and Chopper doesn't really fit well anyway. Perhaps a hinged roof would have been a better idea. Pros: Nice figures Cons: Expensive for such a small ship, shouldn't really be a stand-alone product. The biggest issue is this ship's utter failure to do the one thing that many would buy it for - it does not connect to the Ghost easily. There is a landing pad at the back of the Ghost for it (on top not underneath as in the programme) and the Ghosy fits into it - just - but does not clip in . I had to add a couple of extra bricks and adjust the build to make it fit but it still doesn't quite look right. For the price I expected more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh.......... This really is a lackluster set if you ask me. The minifigs are ok, but the value of the Ezra figure (as of 2015) has dropped, as he has appeared in the 75090 Ezra's Speeder Bike. If you want the Ezra figure, get that set, as it is cheaper and comes with Ezra's lightsaber (which in this set his lightsaber is not included). As for the Chopper figure, he is a nice astromech droid, and it is nice to get an astromech other than R2. The Phantom itself has some good playability aspects, such as the spring- loaded shooter, but as a teen, I care more about accuracy and being able to display the set, and this is the set's main downfall. The Phantom isn't exactly size accurate, but this is the case with a lot of sets. The main issue I have is that it is very hard to sit up the Phantom, so you have to fold the wings in, which I think gives the ship a terrible look. If you're a teen like me, then I would stay away from this set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We want more rebels! My son (9) was so excited to receive this set for Christmas. He's a big fan of the Star Wars Rebels show. He likes that Ezra has a helmet and his hair so they can be interchanged. He also received the Ghost set and is working on building that to see how the ships connect. He is really excited about this feature. He can't wait for more Rebels sets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son received this for his birthday. He actually got two, one from a friend and one from us. He loved putting it together. He loved it so much that he gave his other one to his younger brother who will be having a birthday in a few weeks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great set I thought the phantom was a great set to build and play with it is very compact and looks just like the phantom from star wars rebels. the only problem is chopper is kind of hidden in the set.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kinda like buying an escape pod! The set is okay for what LEGO had to work with I guess, but as far as I can tell, yeah, the Phantom is basically an escape pod. Ezra is an okay fig, the helmet is cool because it is exclusive to this set, and it does not match his jacket, giving him a retro-junk wearing look. His hair is fine too, and it matches his hair from the show perfectly. Chopper is the real reason I bought this set, and he is my new favorite minifigure! Astro droids were always the strong part of Star Wars sets I think, and his tiny body and orange head make him quite unique. The slide shoe on his bottom is odd, but it looks nice. The ship is kinda standard looking, but it has a truly unique landing gear mode. The color scheme is rather ugly, but it fits. The thing that I actually like about it is the shooter, which is placed right on top where it is easy to touch. The cockpit can separate from the rest of the ship, which might be what it does in the show, but otherwise it is kinda pointless because of how small the ship already is, plus the Phantom is already a separating vehicle. The gun, helmet and Chopper can all be stored in the main body of the ship, and Chopper is hard to remove! Even if you use a normal-sized droid like Artoo, you will have to basically pry it out of the droid socket. Oh well. I actually think LEGO could have included this set with the Ghost, but maybe they needed a $20 set in the summer wave. Overall, the set isn't impressive, it only stands out because of Chopper and the Star Wars Rebels show coming out on Monday, but it is at least nice-looking on display, and really the only reason I am disinterested in it is because I am way too old for a set this small. And I got what I bought it for in the first place, which is the great Chopper fig.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Blah Aside from the really cool helmet and "short" R2 unit this kit is a bomb it is a one time purchase if you already own the Ghost or you are purchasing with the Ghost. This kit should have been packaged with the Ghost or sold for 15. go with the snow speeder for another 4 bucks you will be glad you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy I have always been a fan of the Star Wars theme, and I think this set is a great addition. It's always nice to be able to get a ship for under $40. Pros: Great (new) minifig and droid. The folding wings are a great feature and work well. The back storage space fits the helmet and gun perfectly, so there is no need to try to cram the extra pieces in the cockpit like some other Star Wars ships. Cons: I'm not a fan of the new spring-loaded missiles. However, this set makes it very easy for this piece to simply be removed and causes no problems to the look or design of the ship. Star Wars Rebels hasn't even aired yet, but if it allows for more sets like this to come out, I am very excited for it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like buying a handle for a coffee mug. Why the Lego Group would take a 240 piece set and split it from the Ghost at this point can only be taken as an insult to any lego purchaser. You have one set. It isn't complete without another set. And only 240 more pieces? This ship has the playability of some of the 1979 space lego sets. Not a lot. More shipping costs, packaging costs, tax, etc. No reason to split this set up. I may only feel a bit of pity for the Lego Group because of the target audience of the upcoming Disney animated Star Wars flotsam. My one recommendation to Lego is: know YOUR audience, even if Disney has no idea who their's are. Pros: Completes the cast of characters for the Ghost. Cons: We had to buy a separate ship to complete the cast of characters for the Ghost. The TWO SETS GO TOGETHER!!??

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice first Rebels set I really like this set, it was fun to build and use, i didn't find it challenging but it should provide a good level of difficulty to keep the interest of younger builders. Another Minifigure would have been nice, maybe a genetic Stormtrooper for Ezra to battle, if this was thW set bought by a new builder after seeing the SW Rebels tv show he wouldn't have any baddies but i suppose the price is a factor so i must say that i think this set is a couple of pounds more expensive than i would have liked. but on the whole a nice set to build and use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply Amazing This is totally one of the best sets I've ever bought for less than $30. Let's break it up into descriptions, then pros/cons, shall we? The Figs: Great detail on Ezra with his jacket, including the lifelike ripped fabric designs and the mysterious symbol on his back (which may be the symbol of the ghost or the phantom--can't tell.) C1-10P (Chopper) is a nice astromech, and he's different from all the others, too. He has a shorter mid-section with one of those things the use on speeders to make it look like it's floating on the bottom. He also has shorter legs, making him look tiny in comparison to an R2 unit. But his petite build makes him easy to slide into the slot in the cargo hold for him. Ezra's helmet was a nice addition that was a nice touch that they brought from the show. It surprised me that they were going to go this in-depth with this new subtheme, making me think that as the show goes on, the sets will keep on coming. (Show starts up in October if you're interested. Disney XD). Now, onto the ship. Nice build, good folding wings, able to hold helmet, droid, and blaster, but it really isn't outstanding. I like the front cannons a lot. It has a nice spring loaded shooter and the detachable cockpit is cool, too. Pros: Ezra Chopper Detachable Cockpit Missile Cool cannons Helmet Cons: Needs some threat (eg: stormtrooper and speeder) Extra: If you're a Disney hater like my son, don't worry. This set has almost the same feel as a clone wars set. Look for my next review (which will be posted tonight) on the Ghost, and read my review on the Warrior Bike if you feel like it. I was locked out of my account for a while and couldn't write any reviews. All together, a great set. Hope you like my second review!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Satisfying Build The Phantom is a set with both good and bad features, but the good features certainly outweigh the bad. The spring-loaded launcher is a fun and interesting feature, and it is a lot more effective that the flick missiles that many Lego fans have come to get used to. The minifigures are interesting and exciting, and leave me wondering more about what might happen in 'Star Wars: Rebels', as I haven't seen it yet - I was only given this set as a birthday present, and I wouldn't have bought it otherwise, as I don't know what will happen in 'Rebels', and I don't like to build or play with a set if I don't know the story behind it. In conclusion, this set is fun, sturdy and good for all ages, even if it does have some shortcomings, one being the wings.
