This set's minifigs include: 2 stormtroopers, Grand Moff Tarkin(woohoo!), an Imperial Officer(another Woohoo!), 2 Imperial Guards(3rd woohoo!), and Darth Vader. Overall, I am very happy with them. Also, a 1x2x5 clear blue piece is included, which has a sticker of Emperor Palpatine an either side. I have yet to find a use for it.
This set has a very accurate structure, but the proportions are awful. I cannot use it alongside my X-wing because the x-wing is the same size. I have accepted this, however, because the ISD is huge and therefore cannot be represented properly in lego. The only problem is all the red and blue technic parts in obvious places.
The parts are very basic except for a few odd bits like a 4x8 plate with no studs on the edges. There are also many parts that are in colors they have never been released in before. The escape pod is made up of a jack stone fuel tank piece.
I am very happy. The building took a very long time, but is lots of fun. I have no plans of deconstructing it due to the time I spent building it.
I replaced all the funny colored parts with grey or black and now it looks much better. I also added an extra row of turbolasers to make it more accurate to LSW2(awesome game). I removed the crane thing that is supposed to lift Vader's helmet because it didn't work. I would add a fourth row of turbolasers, but I lack the correct parts. I substituted the megaphones as boosterson the escape pod for black 1x1 cones attaced to 1x2 bricks with handles on the sides. I changed the escape pod ejection system so that the pod would not fall out too easy.
In response to the reviewer below, I lack a digital camera, so I can't post pics.
