Red Buggoid is exclusive to this set. He looks identical to the green ones except for the change in color

I love the azure blue with white.

I like how the guns or engines fit under the blue pieces that would normally be used for hood and fenders of cars

Set includes 1 of these "cocoon pods" (2 parts)

Galaxy Squad is a fun space theme that pits humans and robots against alien buggoids. The robots are interesting with interesting heads. The humans have well printed torso's and armor in various colors. All of these will be very useful for MOC's. Many of the sets contain lots of interesting parts and pieces in both common and not so common colors. 

LEGO shop at home recently discounted all Galaxy Squad sets. Many speculate that the theme/line is being retired. Now is the time to buy before they are gone. Good luck. You may be able to find them at a discounted price. 

Pricing based on piece count is a bit high with piece count of 311 and retail price of $39.99

Lots of interesting pieces and colors (Lime or yellow green, Azure Blue and New Dark Red)
Many technic parts (a plus for some)
Red Buggoid is exclusive to this set
Good play value for young ones
