When someone is seen buying this Mace Windu's Jedi Starfighter set, many would think that they are targetting the R8-B7 astromech droid and the Tactical Droid TX-20, yes, these two items are bringing values to the set, but I got this set for simply what it is, the Starfighter.

While the Plo Koon's Starfighter was a little disappointing, the color combination makes this Starfighter looks better, though the use of stickers is still a bad thing for me (despite being a better sticker set), the movement of the wings in this Starfighter seems to be rather limited, and the vehicle is poorly armed, with only a missile launcher at the bottom of the cabin.

Another feature which is highlighted in the manual is the placeholder of the lightsaber, but in two pieces, which is a strange idea.

But after all, it is a good looking Starfighter, plus the R8-B7, TX-20, a nice Separatist speeder, and two STAPs (Single Trooper Aerial Platform), it is a good value set to get, and a must get if you a Starfighter fan.

However, this set is another sign that sticker wedges for Starfighters is the norm now, I understand that stickers are common in lego, but for Starfighters, they should really consider a printed wedge as it is the essence of the vehicle.

The ironic part of this set is Mace, despite being a wonderful character, the minifig is also available in 8019, so I am not sure if the minifig would become the focus of the set.
