The set nicely replicates the iconic ship from the movie. There are only a few parts that are fiddly to assemble, and shouldn't be a problem for the younger enthusiasts.
All of the parts are commonly available - in fact, I've built mine out of spare parts in the Lego box! However, it does use a lot of the angled wing plates, so others may not find it as easy to assemble.
Due to the dearth of Imperial capital ships in our Lego collection, this one is actively played with almost every day - even in original trilogy and later themed battles (that's despite it being from the prequel series!).
The Clone Trooper Minifigure is another good addition to a Lego Star Wars collection - they are also regularly played with (albeit only during prequel series battles). The real prize, on the other hand, is the rifle that comes with it - one of the more rare weapons in the Lego Minifigure arsenal!
The set is an excellent investment for display, as well.
