The engines pivot so that in the landing position the safe carying the "jewels" is exposed. The mechanism is fun, alhtough a little fragile. It came with four minifigures, which seem to be unique.
We had one problem: the doors didn't snap on the lego pieces firmly so they would fall off when opening. I wrote to lego for replacement, I expect them to come. In the meantime, some crepe paper between the doors and the receiving studs seems to have done the trick.
The only other caveate is that your child will want more sets.
I wasn't quite sure what to think of this prior to buying it. I recognized the minis from Clone Wars, though I don't remember this ship being particularly prominent in any episode I have ever seen. In fact, I only remember Embo and Sugi from one episode in season 2 (a very nice homage to The Magnificent Seven titled "Bounty Hunters"), but if Aurra Sing ever rode in this ship or with Sugi and Embo on the show, I never saw it. For that reason, I thought this was an odd choice for a Lego set release. But I got it for $30, I like bounty hunters and it's just shy of 400 pieces, so I figured I'd pick it up. I'm glad I did.
Aurra Sing is the only character here with any noteriety outside of The Clone Wars and only as an extended universe character at that. (Her very brief appearance in Episode 1 is so quick that you'll miss it if you blink.) This ship doesn't even have a name, just "Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship". However, what makes it seem unimportant is probably what will make this a collector's treat; I highly doubt it'll get re-released like the Falcon and Slave 1 do.
It displays nicely, though without a stand, you have to lower the side propulsion tanks for it to stand upright. I like the look of the characters; Aurra looks appropriately evil, and Sugi's face tattoos are done nicely. I also like Embo's hat. A lot of care went into painting these miniatures. Stickers are at a minimal, which I would say is a good thing, as I generally hate them. (Stickers can be difficult to adjust once placed). I like the knife weilding pink Tooka on the bottom right side of the cockpit, gives it some personality. Problem is that there is really only room for Sugi (or any one other standard minifig), which is perplexing considering they put together this motley crew of mismatched characters. There is an assassin droid as well, but I don't consider them (or the similarly built battle droids) real minifigs.
The durability leaves something to be desired, though it isn't as bad as some of the other reviews would have you believe. I reinforced the doors and cockpit front, which were somewhat problematic but not overly so. Easily fixed with some spare pieces I had from another build. I love the way the doors swing out and the hidden compartment underneath (with the fancy trap door to peek inside on the back). When you slide a part of the tail back, it shifts the propulsion tanks upright, which is very cool. When piecing it together and I saw what they were doing internally, I was like, "Ohhhh, that's sweet." The only real design flaw that I found to be completely absurd was that, based on the pieces on the hull and the rockets, there should be an additional piece to join the two for stability and reinforcement rather than just the single connection, but they opted to not include it. This makes no sense. (I am considering painting the parts necessary yellow for the second connection, but it depends on how long I end up leaving it on display.) I would think if I were a child or had a child who was going to be playing with this regularly though, it would be absoultely necessary or there is too much pressure in the wrong spots, which causes the pieces to separate over time. Again, not as bad as it maybe sounds; I just think another 10+ pieces is all this set really needed.
The gist: Cool(if somewhat unknown) minifigs not found in other sets, sleek design (if somewhat less stable than it should be), great colors and aesthetic touches. A lot of fun to build, looks good on display. A solid 4.5 out of 5, only the less than optimal stabiity being a negative.
And, Lego, if you're interested in putting out some obscure bounty hunter ships, how about the Hound's Tooth? Mist Hunter? Punishing One? How about Dash Rendar's Outrider? Just saying.
