What makes this so attractive to me to buy?
Figures are rare. Previously there were only two sets with senate commandos and only one of those contains the captain.
New design of guns allows real shooting. The design is nice except the one for the captain which simply makes it a bit longer. It is one of the sets to collect extra bricks.
The use of Technic bricks can allow the cannon to rotate easily and more playable.
The only drawback is no printed bricks except the figures. That should be better to be a printed control panel of the cannon and an emblem of the Galactic Republic.
