    I neglected to mention it also comes with a miniature R2-D2 figure!

    You know, that sounded expensive to me at first, but at 8.5 cents per piece, it isn't really compared to other sets. Will grab this during the May the 4th be with you promotion. Can't wait to see the first person to motorize R2!

    Most of those pieces look very small, so 8.5c/7.1p each might not be great value. Weight has to play a factor too. I'd hope this weighs at least 2.5Kg/5.5 pounds to be the same value for money as most other UCS sets. Anyone know what this weighs?

    This will need wheels and the 3rd leg to be permanently deployed for motorisation - might give it a go once I have mine to see the internal space going spare.

    I think it's a good deal
