God knows what the series will be like. Lego's quality on the other hand is persistent, and really only ever gets better. The Ghost is a really interesting ship, it's almost diamond like in shape. There's no shortage of features, and it comfortably seats all the included minifigures. However, Sabine - the Mandolorian is nowhere to be found. I can only assume this means there will be future Star Wars Rebels sets, it seems quite odd that they'd exclude her in the initial releases, though. As for the minifigures, they're all great. The stormtrooper finally has leg printing, but it uses a new helmet mold. Not entirely sure how I feel about this, on the one hand it looks great. Better than previous iterations. On the other, OT stormtroopers now like cartoonish in comparison. Hera is great, everybody wants more Twi'leks. Kanan's hairpiece is unique, not sure if it's been used in different lego themes. Finally, there's Zeb the purple alien. The plastic used for the head feels a lot more tougher than any alien heads of old, though it's still slightly rubbery. I urge caution when handling the Ghost though, Lego seem to be using spring based projectiles now. They're not bullets by any means, but due to the rather awkward shape of the Ghost, it's very easy to accidentally trigger them. They ought to have included some safety goggles with this set!

It's also worth nothing that the Ghost and Phantom are one and the same. Both sets connect. Rather cleverly, the images Lego released never showed the rear of the ship in great detail. That's because there's a gaping hole in the fuselage in which to sit the Phantom. It's well detailed, and honestly it's what you would expect with a docking mechanism as such. Not sure why they're shy about showing it...

[Edit]

And there's also quite a few stickers that need to be placed on cylindrical pieces. They're by far the most painful, and the other stickers aren't too much of an issue. But I thought I should mention it, I'm always slightly annoyed when TLG include sticker sheets instead of printing directly onto the pieces, it's just cheap. They tend to fade and peel over a few years, and that's not even including the wear from casually touching them. Having said that, the stickers used on the upper exterior are printed on fairly durable and transparent strips of plastic, so there's that.

Really good, well made and sturdy set - much larger than expected. Two points to note - you need to buy The Phantom to "complete it" and the set does not include Sabine. Chopper and Ezra come with the Phantom. The set took me 3 very enjoyable evenings to put together and my son loves it!

Although it's expensive it's an ideal present for a Star Wars fan. (old and young alike)

The detail is breathtaking and once complete, everyone, and I mean everyone has a positive comment to pass.

If you need to treat yourself, put this on your treat list.

My son loves Lego. Lego is quality. He loves Star Wars and collects Lego Star Wars. This is a great model that took hours to build and he is very pleased with the result and the figures.
