Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing for the value To be fair I got my set from Lego-land Windsor Resort on clearance but still amazing relaxing build nothing that hard except for the stickers, apart from that great. I really love the way its made and it can split into two, gives the spacecraft extra articulation! :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE BEST!! JUST BUY IT!!! I really like this one! The wings do this awesome tilt thing, which adds to the already sleek design. I love to zoom it around and make it slide through vertical gaps! The missiles are hidden really well and when I show it to friends they are surprised that there was something underneath! Although they open up well, actually firing a missile is hard to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from an impressive set i am not the biggest fan of the galaxy squad line (just another storyless set-seller) but this set was quite enjoyable. it was a fast build, and the minifigs and little alien speeder were nothing worth noting, but the ship itself was nicely built and quite cool for play or display. the missile tuck neatly into the ship itself, and the wings are flexible, which is a nice addition to a decent ship. Pros: cool fighter cons: lame minifigs and speeder

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There is a lot in this little guy. I was very impressed at how much one little space ship could do. First off, the cockpit can detach from the body of the ship. Second, the cockpit, when attached to the body of the ship, swivels so that when the ship is rotated the cockpit will remain flat. Third, the cockpit has little wings that can fling out. Fourth, the main wings can lower, and last but not least on top of the body of the ship are two flick missiles. Over all there is a lot this space ship can do, which makes for great playtime and lots of fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A...MAZING This is a fantastic set. My six-year old built it almost entirely on his own and we are both really happy with it. Very cool features and great details. I agree with others that the stickers are a drawback, but they do complete the set. We too lost the antennae for the alien but we were good to go after picking through the rug with a flashlight for 15 minutes. This is a great inexpensive set, you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ONLY THE BEST... ...will survive, and this set will survive. With these pros: BUILD SPLIT FUNCTION SOLOMON BLAZE STICKERS WEAPONS MISSILES MOSQUITOID SPEEDER SPACECRAFT Cons: NO G-squad drone. You have to get the Space Swarmer for that. Overall good set but sometimes (not often) the split function messes up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Wraith awaiting launch orders!" That line from the original StarCraft comes to mind every time I see this set,. In fact, every Galaxy Squad set reminds me of that wonderful game, and with a little rework, I'll be able to truly make StarCraft sets in Lego. But, enough about that; on to the review... As everyone mentioned before, the cockpit swivels, *yay,* but, when held sideways, the wings aren't centered. I know it's not such a big deal, but I'm a little OCD like that. If it were real, I don't think it'd be able to fly straight. I liked the minifigs, especially the two faces on the pilot. Not really sure why a bug needs a space sled, but I'm not questioning it. My two complaints (just like EVERYONE else) are the stickers and the flick-fire missiles. Lets face it, flick-fires go 2 inches out of the tubes before gravity takes over. Maybe if they had longer launchers, or the missiles themselves were longer, I'd be okay with them. All in all, I think this is a great set and I encourage you to pick it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strike down the enemy in the Swarm Interceptor This was my first Galaxy Squad set, and I am extremely pleased with it. I think I will see about getting some more Galaxy Squad sets in the future , to enlarge the battleground. Anyway, on to the review. The Minifigs:Solomon Blaze is nicely designed, wearing a silver and blue space suit, and a blue helmet(similar to Umbaran helmets from Umbaran MHC).The space suit graphics are well thought-out and the head printing is excellent, (determined face with mechanical eye attachment), and it's a double-sided head too, that's always a bonus. The only bad thing is he doesn't have a weapon, but that's not related to fig design so I guess that doesn't count.10/10 The Alien Mosquitoid is, I dunno, I guess a bit cheesy somehow. It's well printed and very insect-y, but just the idea of giant bugs in outer space is sorta funny to me. I guess it's a new concept of space villain, and not a bad on at that. Anyway, it's in the new olive green color that the AFOLs are loving, with these awesome trans-green wings that remind me of a bug's compound eye. It has exoskeleton printing in green, olive, and red. It is armed, but with a "Ray gun" piece that I think everyone is getting a little tired of. It looks a little silly with just the one trans-pink(nice piece!)stud on it, so I modified it with the extra pieces. The antenna do tend to fall out, but they're not hard to put back in.the head sort of makes me think of a cartoon mosquito, but it's a nice design and could be useful to MOCers. 8/10 The vehicles:The Mosquitoids' speeder bike is made of just a few pieces and some great colors, and very Lego-space-alien esque. It is a bit silly looking, and not quite my idea of something a giant, evil, sentient bug would ride, but it does its job just fine. I love that trans-lime piece at the base of it. 7.5/10 The Swarm Interceptor: The centerpiece and namesake of this set, This ship is just awesome. Extremely swooshable and heavily armed enough pound constant fire on an alien cruiser while certain weapons cool down, this ship looks like something straight out of Star Wars. And an escape pod! In a fighter-size ship! With tiny little wings to steer it! I can just imagine the Swarm Interceptor in outer space, blasting through enemy forces, ripping them apart with its guns.Anyway, I think I'm done raving about how jaw-droppingly cool this ship is. On to the review.This starship is armed with dual missiles;there's a great feature where you pop them up out of the hull, four cannons, and dual machine guns. The color scheme is white with blue trim, and there's a feature where you can rotate the hull around and around and the cockpit will stay level. I personally like the whole thing to stay straight so I switched around a couple of pieces so it doesn't do that. The whole thing looks very sleek and space-age, and the windshield opens on a hinge.the wings are a huge piece which I don't recall seeing before, but I like like them.Of course you can detach the cockpit and unfold some tiny little wings and it becomes the aforementioned escape pod. I was left feeling very satisfied with my purchase for $20,which is the perfect price I think. 11/10 Pros: 2 great figs Boss Starship $20 Missile pop up thing Small speeder for alien Overall awesomeness Cons: Solomon has no weapon Alien has weird, cheesy and overused weapon Escape pod wings are short thin and stubby Allen's antenna fall out Overview: this is an amazing set that I would highly recommend. Good job, Lego!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great playability This set is a lot bigger than I thought it would be and has awesome functions. When you move the ship the cabin swivels so that it is always upright.The split vehicle function is good too, the wings fold to make a stand and then the cabin detaches to leave a turret with hidden flick missiles. The cabin then becomes a small fighter.The mosquitoid figure is highly detailed as well and the speeder is really cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOME!!!! This set is REALLY awesome. The minifigs are awesome and the design of the ship is awesome. All of the functions are awesome. The little mosquitoid speeder is awesome. My only complaint is that I wish there was a way stop the wings from spinning ALL the time. The spinning function is awesome MOST of the time but occasionally I wish it wouldn't spin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a good space ship worth buying This is like the only good ship in Galaxy squad. it would be awesome just to buy this a few times, and make a squadron of them. the little alien thing just stnks. but overall, a wonderful set.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome set First of all, I'm sorry if this review is a little long but I want to cover all the aspects. The minifigures: The minifigs are nice and very detailed, but the Mosquitoid should come with extra antennae. The speeder: The Mosquitoid speeder may be small but it still has detail. The only problem as far as I can see is that there's no place for the Mosquitoid's gun. The ship: The actual set is very detailed and has great functions such as the hidden flick missile launcher and the rotating cockpit and its split function. Overall, I can see no problems execpt for there should be more minifigs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whoa. First of all for 20 bucks, this is crazy. I would expect this to be at least $40. The cockpit comes off into 2 separate vehicles - one with 2 hidden flick missiles! Go Peanut butter!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from OMG!!!! SO PACKED WITH FUNCTIONS!!! WOW! This set is so great! So elaborate! So many functions! How couldd LEGO do this? The minifigures: - Solomon Blaze: He has a cool tech-cyborg-scope-thing in his face - Mosquitoid: Very good detail, awesome wings, loose parts on head :/ The build: Cool build, many good techniques used to make it really solid and secure. The only catch is that there are many stickers, and some are really tough to apply. The design: The overall design is very futuristic looking. I think it looks sweet! The colors and stickers fit good together, and it looks fresh and new. It has a total of four yellow laser cannons + the two lighter, detachable guns in the front. The interceptor also has some really nice jet engines. Of course, we must not forget that the set also includes a little speeder for the buggoid! This one is actually really cool, with spikes and small, transparent airfoils. The functions: First, the speeder has a control stick that can be folded in, and some nice moving blasters. Sadly, there's no place for the buggoid's gun. But the interceptor is the really deal when we talk about functions. It has so many of them! The cockpit opens, and there are two guns on the nose that can be detached and used by hand. These look cool. The cockpit is connected to the body of the jet with a loose axel, so that it rotates when the jet moves to always stay in a upright position. It's similar to that of the B-wing from Star Wars and works very good. But that's not it! The cockpit can actually be pulled off and become a vehicle on it's own, which is actually the whole idea of the Galaxy Squad's vehicles: They split into two to become two new vehicles. And the way it's work is cool: After pulled apart, the cockpit has some small wings that can be folded out, so that it can now become a separate vehicle! Meanwhile, the wings on the body of the jet fold down, to actually make leg supports for a turret! That's right, the body is now a turret. Sadly the laser cannons on the jet can't point up, so they can only shoot targets on the ground. But this problem is luckily solved by another, neat function: A secret hatch on the back opens to reveal "deadly" missiles! These are two flick missiles that can be folded up and down to attack enemies in the air! This great feature can also be used in flight mode, which is great! Summary: Pros: - Nice figs - Great speeder for the buggoid - Awesome jet - Working cockpit gravitational rotation - Cool separate vehicles - Neat secret missile hatch Cons: - The turret can't really rotate + the cannons can't point up Awesome set! Recommend it for sure, especially if you are low on budget. TheMagneth out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome set I got this set for my birthday and I love it! It has hidden flick missles, LOTS of detail, and I love the split function. I also really like the self-leveling cockpit! For its price, BUY IT! I assure you that you wouldn't be dissapointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from §§§§§§§§Cool§§§§§§§§ In a word, the Swarm Interceptor itself is AWESOME! The wings are a really neat design with some interesting building techniques, and the cockpit swivels to stay level no matter how the 'body' of the spaceship is oriented. The ship would be awesome even without that feature, but when my 5yo flies this around the room, it just looks like a serious piece of space hardware. The alien glider or whatever is a simple enough design, but uses parts that aren't in most collections (making it difficult to replicate with loose elements from your other sets). The Swarm Interceptor pilot is a decent enough figure, but pales in comparison to the alien, which is modeled after a fly and is very well done. Some nitpicks would include the very easy-to-lose antenna on the alien head, and the use of stickers throughout. Usually, I don't gripe about stickers, but these are printed on especially-thin stock, making them very difficult to apply; I wound up with more fingerprints on these than I usually do with Lego stickers. Overall, the main model is a very good-looking, swooshable space vehicle that was an interesting build and features a worthy villain. Definitely worth the cost, and has me interested in getting more from this theme. -Lloyd2la

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The speedy Intercepter. This is my first galaxy squad set and is amazing both in price and playability. The mosquitoid is very cool with a new head mold and plastic wings. The speeder is very slim and has some nice green pieces. Solomon Blaze has two face expressions and a helmet from alien conquest. The Interceptor is surprisingly large and has some cool features, the rotating cockpit, the opening cockpit, and the split funtion which then is two ships, a turret and a escape pod. I will certainly buy more Galaxy Squad sets in the future. PS. The four new sets: Crater Creeper, CLS-89 Eradicator Mech, Hive Crawler and Galactic Titan will come in july :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first Galaxy Squad set... Ok,first off,I have almost all of the monster fighters sets,a ton of the superhero sets,almost all of the chima sets,and my daughter has quite a few friends sets.the last thing I needed was to start another collection especially since the new chima sets are rght around the corner.but...I saw this one on sale at the store and decided to pick it up.I'm glad I did.this set is awesome.the minifigs are incredibly detailed,and the vehicles are just as awesome.the space ships wings fold down to give the appearance of it standing,sort of like an AT-AT from star wars.the front of the spaceship rotates when u twist the ship in any direction,keeping the minifig pilot always in the upright position.it also comes off and turns into an escape pod like vehicle with folding wings.there are also a set of hidden flick missiles in the base.my favorite part of this set is the bugs vehicle though,the detail on it is awesome for the few pieces its made from.great design on this Lego.anyway,buy this set guys,its awesome.from the minifigs to the vehicles,this set is flawless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 70701 Swarm Interceptor Here is my review for 70701 Swarm Interceptor Let's start by saying that this set has a great value, great price, and great pieces. The cockpit's function, similar to 8087 TIE Defender from Star Wars from 2008, is neat the way you can flip the ship and the cockpit will always stay parallel to the ground. The wings are cool with their folding function to make the interceptor stand on them. The ship also has a hidden missle compartment towards the back where the included Galaxy Squad minifigure, Solomon Blaze, can launch them from a small area for him to stand on. But nothing is perfect :-( , the set, in my opinion, has 2 minor problems: the missles are somewhat difficult to fire the way the back is built and, ok, I think everyone knows what I'm about to say. Stickers. Stickers, stickers, stickers. I think every set has at least one sticker but NOT one printed piece. This set has only one printed piece I believe (the cockpit's dashboard), but everything else you see in the product's picture are stickers. Stickers are annoying, because you pretty much get one chance, after that if you take the sticker off to replace it it starts to collect dust and fuzz. So Lego, I completely understand the fact that printed pieces cost money, but all I'm suggesting is that in the future when the economy gets better, to maybe increase the amount of printed pieces in sets? Anyway here are the overall Pros and Cons: Pros: - Great design, great pieces, great price. - Nice minifigures, LOVE the Mosquitoid's wings (they have a 3 dimensional look! Looks way better in real life than on the internet), - Fits the design and color scheme for the other blue team sets (I won't hint at the other Blue Team set for Summer 2013 though :-) ) Cons: - Missles are hard to fire straight - Stickers Overall, the pros definetely override the cons, so I would absolutely suggest this to a space, Galaxy Squad, or any Lego fan! My Score: 9.5/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fine meal! Howdy, compadres! Have no fear, I am here, but let's get past the honeycomb and into the beeswax! Figures: Solomon Blaze. Mighty fine-as-a-pine figure. I really like the head (especially the rebreather side) and the two guns that attach to the interceptor are very cool, as the binocular pieces are a nice touch. Mosquitoid. It's a bug. In minifigure form. Oh dearest me. I just wish it came with an extra little antenna because someone could lose them really easily. Little Speeder Thing... Very simple, but slightly creative. You get what you see, which isn't bad, but still. Interceptor. BAM! KAPOW! BAZING! AMAZING! (That rhymed) Loads and loads of function filled functions with a tendency to become functions! There is plenty of room inside the opening cockpit, and the feature that allows you to dismember the ship into two pieces is mighty fine. Plus, you can fold out little wings for the cockpit once it's in half. Also, the wings can fold down for a "landing mode" and two missiles can flip upwards. I don't really have anything bad to say about it... Eat your carbs, and don't brush your teeth at night! The Man Himself, The Man.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Swarm Interceptor As a fan of Space, and a very big fan of Alien Conquest, I was quite interested in the new Galaxy Squad line, and this was the one which stood out for me - it looks great from the pictures. The figures: Solomon Blaze is a very nice figure, with some good prints, and a nice double-sided face, one with a breathing apparatus. The mosquitoid is made of hard plastic, so it isn't squirmy, or squishy, which is very nice. It has two feelers, but it'd be nice to have a spare feeler, as these are very small. The Set: The alien speeder is a nice, quick build, and has enough room for the alien to either sit, or stand up. The handle is actually a jackhammer piece - a nice touch there. The Swarm interceptor is nice model, and has some good details, such as the hidden flick-fires, the easy maneuverable wings, which can fold into landing mode, and the nice cockpit, which stays level when on the interceptor, and can go off the ship, and become it's own model. Overall: This is a nice set, and is priced very well, and much recommended, if you are wanting to start you GS collection, I'd say that you should get this. Pros: Minifigures Swarm interceptor Speeder bike Cons: Too many hard to place stickers More flick fires :( See ya next time, CM1

Rated 5 out of 5 by from incredibly swooshable Futuron fun! Swarm Interceptor has it all -- a couple of cool-looking minifigs (astronaut and alien mosquitoid with neat holographic wings), and one of the most fun spaceships ever. It's an instant play set right out of the box, and quickly became my boy's favorite. Not only does it look good, but the cockpit/escape pod swivels 360 degrees so the pilot stays upright, no matter what angle the ship is at. The wings can move from flat to banking angles, to fully 90 degrees down to serve as landing legs. There's a hidden bank of flick-fire missiles, with a little place for the astronaut to stand and shoot. Normally, I don't like stickers -- but these actually look great, and I added them. They're made of transparent plastic, so they don't look as obviously "stickery" as the paper ones. The alien speeder is a cute build with a creative use of a jackhammer for the steering mechanism and a pair of lightsabre handles as guns. It looks like a fast, annoying little craft -- perfect for a mosquitoid to buzz your pilot with! And should you need reinforcements for your Futuron army, this ship will fit in perfectly! ;-)

Its a little challenging for little kids , but i think they will have fun building it.It has 4 functions witch is good for a smaller set . The one thing i don't really like is all the stickers ,but they add allot of great detail,it was bigger than expected,and you get great pieces. pros:great sticker detail,lots of functions,great price and you get what you pay for,the mini-figs are great,has an interesting build,is bigger than expected. cons:the amount of stickers and how big they were I hope that you found this review helpful =)
