To be honest, I didn't buy this, I got it as a birthday present. So I don't have to ask myself "Why did I buy that?" After putting it together, I have to admit, it's more fun to put together and look at than I thought it would be, but it still lands squarely in that generic "Star Wars Vehicle" category in terms of design. If you're into that then this wouldn't be a bad set, but I never got into the ship designs in the newer Star Wars properties.
I am really impressed by how well off the Snow Parka Anakin looks. The... whatever the alien is... that guy is a disappointing minifig, his head is just a large block which also engulfs his torso, so it can't move. It's similar in design to the way the Chewbacca head works.
