Adam, I think your lack of

Adam, I think your lack of exposure to SW Lego sets set you up for disappointment here... While I do not have one, now that you reviewed it I find it a quite impressive set for its size!
For the most part, Lego does not build SW sets to-scale with minifigs, and usually the proportions of the vehicles aren't that close [unless it's something hugely iconic like the Falcon or an X-wing]. Rather, they design the sets to accommodate minifigs, not the other way around. After all, the bigger a set is, the pricier it gets! I would have been stunned to see two minifigs in the cockpit here, though the pull-out tray in back does leave me rather cold.

Beyond that, I'm highly impressed with the new piston joints, detail on the minifigs, and sheer size of this set!

BTW, when they say "Flick Fire!", it's not really meant to be taken literally- "Use your fingernail to push them"- because they don't have the inertia or weight to carry out such a movement. Rather, they're more like bomblets than far-traveling rockets (regardless of what they actually are in the game).

Ooh, this makes me wanna shoot for that Mandalorian ship now...!

I think one of the only sets

I think one of the only sets they did design to scale of Minifigs was the Ultimate Collector's Falcon. If memory serves it was about 500 USD when it came out.

I'm seriously on the fence about this kit. The design is one of my favorite in TOR, but it seems expensive for what it is.
