It is not a very attractive product based on packaging, the blue and white starfighter looks dull, although I kind of like Plo Koon, I got the minifig a long time ago from 7676 Republic Gunship already, the brown droid R7-D4 is important, but is it worth the high price that I have to pay for getting this at this time? Well, I did get this 8093 set, for one very simple reason, I have to collect every Starfighters, and I won't miss any of them.

After building the set, I think the real thing looks better than how it appears on the box, but there are things which are truly disappointing, one big issue is, it is annoying to see that the wedges of a starfigher is now a sticker thing!

Actually when you put Ahsoka's Starfighter beside it, you'll see that the design is not being improved, but even simplified, the eject mechanism is nice but there are obviously no big effort to make the Starfighter looks better, as the designer does not seem to be willing to add a few more stickers to decorate it. And note that there is no missiles available.

I think at the end it is not a matter of whether this set should be recommended or not, but it is a bad sign on how Lego manage the product design, I don't think it is good thing that they think people will buy a set simply because they throw in a new astromech droid. In a way I think the same design philosophy is behind 8089, although I am easily happy to have the snowspeeder there, but the real new stuff there is only Wampa.

I like to see how other people would review this set, I am sorry that I do sound negative in mine, although after all this is a Starfighter.
