A cool set from the die cast line. The pilot figure has a hole in it’s abdomen to secure it to a peg in the cockpit. The microfigs to not have any articulation. I’d have preferred a different color elite. However, that isn’t the focal point of the set for me. It’s the Banshee itself. No assembly required, it’s ready to go right out of the box. The Die Cast figure is sure to be a collectible in the future, so don’t lose them!
Overall Rating: This set is plague with the one thing that made the full blok set near perfect. That being the cockpit cover. It isn’t game accurate. However, the die cast is accurate to it’s larger brother, so no points off there. I give this set a 9 medals out of 10. I had an issue with putting the clear larger peg into the base. When I used one of the other pieces it worked fine. Just be careful putting those in.

All in all a great set. I recommend getting it!
