Based on what I observed from forums and reviews, I suspect that this is another under-rated Lego Star wars set, is it possible that being a lady's starfighter discourages guys from buying it? But my personal experiences with this set is very positive, and as a result, I bought another box for storage.

Ahsoka is a wonderful character adding much vitality to the cast, her interaction with Anakin in the clone wars brings much youthful sensation to the series. The animation did a great job in presenting the young padawan but the lego character does not seem to duplicate the animation character very well, the minifig looks too mature to me.

But aside from Ahsoka and R7, the starfighter is very good, with printed parts (which is getting rare) and a nice dark red based color scheme. The droid fighter is also good, with a design which I think is very similar to 8016 Hyena Droid bomber, it can fold and stand vertically, quite an interesting model.

And despite hating stickers, the stickers in this set is well fit into the model, well, if it can be properly placed, for me it is always challenging to place stickers on the bricks nicely.

The two buzz droids, however, can get loose easily, it is great though for us to have them again without getting the expensive old sets such as 7252 Droid Tri-Fighter.

I have read some reviews complaining about the price and it seems that some could have bought it at a strangely higher price, but I got it here in Hong Kong at around  USD 50, for 2 nice vehicles + 2 buzz droid + 2 minifigs, I see this as reasonable.

I would highly recommend this set!

Here are the pictures of the set:
