It does need the smaller sets that go with it, to create the "scene", but it is just way cool when you spin it and it makes the flying sounds. :)
You know you want to! ;)
BTW, I forgot I also have a #5770 Lighthouse to add to the selection.
The Tri-Pod walker was a "sure thing" in my book, I mean, who doesn't want aliens invading your city, and after all you need at least 3 of them, right?
Alas, you can still buy it well under RRP from many places.
@tdhbr MOTHERSHIP!!!!!! it's such a fun set, has a couple of great minifigs (reporter, Hypaxxus8, clinger!) and a mildly repetitive but overall fun build that comes together way better than you'd ever expect. I only took it apart because I know I'll make it again one of these days =-)
I watched Ds build the mothership, and thought the build looked repetitive.
I do not have experience with the other two, but I love the three building variations in DA, the characters, etc. When you add in the fact that it is the grandest of the HP sets... To me there is no question.
My 5 year old has been obsessed with aliens, since before AC came out, and he was sooooo thrilled when the line came out. His favorite has been the alien clinger. I did purchase a clearanced extra set just for that alien.
You can add me to the AC lovefest. I'm also not sure why it didn't seem to do well. (I just happen to prefer DA over mothership, though. :-) )
