    A bit of a con...

    I had serious reservations about buying this in the first place since I felt that it would have been better to include it in the Ghost set and add twenty dollars to the price. Making it a separate item really only allows Lego to squeeze an extra few dollars out of us. As it was I wanted to have the complete set and so bit the bullet in the hope that they would work nicely together for my daughter who is a big Rebels fan. Unfortunately that was not the case. The Build: The ship itself is a very straightforward, nothing special, quick build, exactly what you would expect from a ship that is essentially a glorified escape pod/scout ship. The folding wings are a nice touch if a little simplistic. The box recommends the build for a 7-12 year old, my five year old finished it in little over an hour so it's not exactly rocket science. Figures: Nice, well done figures. It is nice to get Ezra with his cadet helmet and Chopper is a nice little figure. It would have been nice however if the ship had somewhere for Chopper to go. There is what appears to be a cargo compartment in the middle but you have to pull the roof off to get at it and Chopper doesn't really fit well anyway. Perhaps a hinged roof would have been a better idea. Pros: Nice figures Cons: Expensive for such a small ship, shouldn't really be a stand-alone product. The biggest issue is this ship's utter failure to do the one thing that many would buy it for - it does not connect to the Ghost easily. There is a landing pad at the back of the Ghost for it (on top not underneath as in the programme) and the Ghosy fits into it - just - but does not clip in . I had to add a couple of extra bricks and adjust the build to make it fit but it still doesn't quite look right. For the price I expected more.
    As a kid, I was regularly treated to “Battle Pack”-sized LEGO sets, but gifts from the next tier up were fewer and farther between, and all the more special for it. I have very fond memories of building police trucks and ambulances with all sorts of playable features; the relatively modest increase in price didn’t seem equal to the profound improvement in playability. Now, as an adult, it’s pleasing to see that LEGO are continuing to make sets in their £20-ish range just as crammed with value, and the Phantom is a case in point. Larger than its box would suggest, Ezra Bridger’s separable spaceship has much more to it than meets the eye. Its spring-loaded missiles can fire to both aft and stern, its cockpit section is more spacious than you’d expect, and its aft section has double-hinged wings that unfurl for flight or fold up neatly for docking in the Ghost. I didn’t expect there to be any sort of interior in the aft compartment, but the roof lifts off to reveal a perfectly Chopper-sized space, and the rear door hides a space just large enough to stow Ezra’s Imperial helmet and blaster. It’s an attractive and solid piece of rebel kit - shining white, all that it lacks is a bit of wear and tear. The two minifigures are both excellent too. LEGO have, by now, perfected the astromech droid, and so Chopper is vested with both the look and feel of his cartoon counterpart. Pleasingly his build differs from other astromechs that I’ve built, which I think is quite fitting for the contrary little fellow. Ezra, whilst lacking his lightsaber / blaster (which I don’t think he’d built at the time of this set’s release, in fairness), is a dead ringer for TV’s wayward orphan. I did initially question the use of “adult” legs for him, but on reflection I think they’ve made the right call - he’s closer to the surly teenage Anakin of “Attack of the Clones” than he is the exasperating infant of “The Phantom Menace”.

    My great nephew loved it.

    Meh..........

    This really is a lackluster set if you ask me. The minifigs are ok, but the value of the Ezra figure (as of 2015) has dropped, as he has appeared in the 75090 Ezra's Speeder Bike. If you want the Ezra figure, get that set, as it is cheaper and comes with Ezra's lightsaber (which in this set his lightsaber is not included). As for the Chopper figure, he is a nice astromech droid, and it is nice to get an astromech other than R2. The Phantom itself has some good playability aspects, such as the spring- loaded shooter, but as a teen, I care more about accuracy and being able to display the set, and this is the set's main downfall. The Phantom isn't exactly size accurate, but this is the case with a lot of sets. The main issue I have is that it is very hard to sit up the Phantom, so you have to fold the wings in, which I think gives the ship a terrible look. If you're a teen like me, then I would stay away from this set.
    Thank you for your review of this set. We take what our fans have to say very seriously, as our design teams love to hear what we can improve on. The design team felt that this set really encompassed the starship from the Rebel's cartoon, and is a great addition is The Ghost Starship. We will pass along your comments and feedback. Thank you again for your review.

    Awesome

    So, when I went to the store I saw it! I was so excited! I loved it. It is kind of small for the price but I like it.

    The set is a money grab or a quick gift item.

    The Phantom is a cool little set...but only if you already have the Ghost and want it to be complete or if you're giving someone low-priced lego gift. Adult collector here..My brother got me the Ghost for christmas, so my first thought was where to get the Phantom for cheap. On its own, the Phantom is unremarklable. A basic shuttle, with a few small compartments and the ability to separate the cockpit from the rest of the ship. The minifigs are cool, especially the droid. I've seen Rebels a few times and the ship is definitely not to scale. If you own the Ghost, then I recommend getting this ship. If you don't, I wouldn't recommend it..... even as a gift don't buy it unless that person also has a Ghost.

    true to order

    great

    Was for my grandson birthday and was perfect

    The Phantom

    Love it times twenty!

    Like buying a handle for a coffee mug.

    Why the Lego Group would take a 240 piece set and split it from the Ghost at this point can only be taken as an insult to any lego purchaser. You have one set. It isn't complete without another set. And only 240 more pieces? This ship has the playability of some of the 1979 space lego sets. Not a lot. More shipping costs, packaging costs, tax, etc. No reason to split this set up. I may only feel a bit of pity for the Lego Group because of the target audience of the upcoming Disney animated Star Wars flotsam. My one recommendation to Lego is: know YOUR audience, even if Disney has no idea who their's are. Pros: Completes the cast of characters for the Ghost. Cons: We had to buy a separate ship to complete the cast of characters for the Ghost. The TWO SETS GO TOGETHER!!??
