Posted ImageWatch out, everyone! An evil swarm of alien bugs is attacking our homeworld! But fear not, for the Galaxy Squad is adequately equipped to fend them off, or so we hope. Today we take a look at the Space Interceptor, such a set from the newest from LEGO Space line, and see the surprise moves it has to zap the swarm member back to where they came. Read on for reporter ChocolateFrogs' full review.http://www.bzpower.com/story.php?ID=5915]View the full article[/url]

This looks like a really cool set. The minifigs look great, and the ship itself looks awesome too.

 

Thanks for the review!

Nice review ChocolateFrogs! Personally, I like the new blue colour, and the GS theme as a whole. Some sets, like in most themes, could be better, but this is one of my favourites. IMO I don't see what's wrong with stickers but your reason made sense. I'm not the biggest MOCer. Thanks CF! :)

Nice set, and, actually, I do like this kind of blue. :P The rotating feature is very cool. And it's a space theme!

How is more Dark Azur a con? Typically when a rarer color gets featured prominently in a set, I'd place that firmly in the pro column. 

Also, a few of the functions went unmentioned or used incorrectly. The cockpit is meant to be not just rotatable but also detachable, and the folding wings are meant to be used to turn the other segment of the spaceship into a sort of gun turret when the cockpit is detached.

 

Otherwise a pretty good review.

[color=#990000;]This theme is fantastic and so are the sets. One of the best LEGO space themes of all time if you ask me. Could possibly leave a legacy. I'd love to own every single set of this theme. :P Thanks for the great review, CF! :)[color=#000080;]-Gata Posted Image[/color][/color]
