Rated 4 out of 5 by Fishman Good set, but still lacking
I'll be honest, the main reason why I got this set was because it came with Quinlan Vos and Luminara Unduli, and you can never have too many Turbo Tanks/Juggernauts in the process. This set isn't the largest version piece wise (it's actually the middle largest when it comes to pieces), but it's pretty tiny compared to the other two versions (the 2005/2006 version definitely).
This set is much more stable than it's 2005/2006 counterpart, as well as is much easier to build (I still have difficulty building it's first iteration). The set is also much more detailed on the outside. The minifigure selection is also great, as it comes with Luminara, Quinlan, and Gree, along with a regular 41st Elites trooper and two battle droids. The mini AT-RT included is also a nice touch, mirroring the BARC speeder included with the first version, but it still feels lacking. Really, what turned me off was the size of this thing. It's just too small, cramping up the interior in the process. Compared to it's earlier versions, it feels like a step back rather than a step forward. However, the set is still good on it's own. The play-ability is great as you can re-enact the battle of Kashyyyk, as well as Order 66 with the minifigure selection.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TheOdds It's ok...
I was excited to get this set because I have the original clone turbo tank from the 2005 Episode III series. I was looking forward to an upgraded version of a clone turbo tank, but was a little disappointed upon completion. First of all, this set is fairly small, and makes my other tank look massive next to this one. Despite it being a smaller model than I hoped for, it was a great deal more durable than the one I have, or a lot of sets for that matter. The build was also a bit more difficult than I thought it would be, especially for being geared more towards kids. In particular I had trouble attaching the parts that connected the axles and wheels to the main body on the bottom. There are no stickers, however, which is always an upside to any Lego set. The large open middle section is only used for storing the little walker that comes with it, but a couple plates could easily be added if you wanted to take some more clones for a ride. I also really liked the mini figures, which were all new additions to my collection (minus the battle droids). All in all, I would say this is a better play set than a collect/display set. I'm sure any kid would love rolling this around and shooting all the launchers on the tank and on the little walker too, and it even comes with a built in handle for an easy way to carry it. I would avoid this one if you have an older version of this set though.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RJD7255 Its a good set but not as good.
This set is not bad as a set on its own but, when you put it up next to the 2010 turbo tank the new one looks like a ripoff of the 2010. It is much smaller and almost the same pries as the 2010 one. Other then that its good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LEGOBROS74 THIS SET IS DA BOMB!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have to say when I got this set by the size of the box I was a little worried it would be too small but it was PERFECT!!!!!! I have been waiting for a new turbo tank so I could add it to my kashyyyk MOC. This is my first turbo tank and the others did not look as good as this one. It is definitely in my top five star wars sets. THIS SET WAS MADE FOR STAR WARS EPISODE III FANS!!!!!! The minifigs were AMAZING we got a new Luminara and Quinlan Vos! Along with Commander Gree an Elite Corps Clone Trooper and two battle droids. I would recommend it to ANY star wars fan. The play features make it so you can play for hours. If you have the kashyyyk trooper battle pack and this set it is great for army building. I WOULD RECOMMEND IT!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnhTran SIZE DOESN'T MATTER!
This is one of the coolest Lego Star Wars set since 1999 not only because the set is cool but the Turbo Tank is my all time favorite vehicle in Star Wars. The only people who complain about the size are the ones that have the old set or are obsessed with sizes. Guess what? We're getting an UCS turbo tank. This new and "smaller" one has much greater play value. The old one is plain huge and has no projectile launchers (there's one but it's terrible). It's just too big to play with. Plus, the new one is based off kasheek and the old one is based off the Clone Wars (which almost no one cares about tbh). The old one's handle is also pretty terrible that you'll hurt yourself by holding it. Overall, both sets are great but don't worry if you think the new one is small. It's not! I built the set and it is not small AT ALL. You only think it's small because you compare it with the old turbo tank. Piece lego fans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Calico I'd been looking forward to this item as perhaps the only attractive product in the June Star Wars line up, for me personally. Although the Turbo Tank only features for perhaps 10 seconds of the actual star wars films, rolling past in the background of the Kashyyyk battle in Revenge of the Sith, it has a very memorable design and this set allows you to create that scene again; more plausibly if you have the Kashyyyk troopers battlepack to add a few more olive clone troops.
This particular lego item really fits into the category of 'toys I wish I could send back in time to my younger self', as it's extremely capacious inside and has numerous compartments from end-to-end to store figures, guns and equipment. The childhood- play value with sets like this is extremely high; loading and offloading the troops; seeing which other smaller vehicles you can fit inside etc. Additionally the way the wheels are articulated in pairs, with the middle set on suspension/springs, allows them to move on their axis independently of the other wheels, which creates a surprisingly good visual effect when rolled along an uneven surface like a sofa; it genuinely comes across as a robust, all terrain vehicle and I can imagine children particularly having fun in this way.
Ultimately I buy Lego now purely to assemble and display, as I find it aesthetically pleasing and relaxing to arrange into scenes on my bookshelves. So to finish: this is definitely the highlight of this Star Wars release wave, simultaneously being an extremely good 'toy' with an impressive array of figures and also a prime display piece, detailed enough to stand next to a USC line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Batmanstrikesagain This Set Is Good.....
I think this is a good Lego set, I woudn't say great and I'll explain. We've received two past turbo tanks in 2005 and 2010. When you do a comparison test, this one is scaled down quite a bit and seems visually deceiving especially with the box it comes with. It's smaller in every way than the predecessors, shorter in height, length (by an entire wheel base) and width. So overall it's a small set for the price
Now Time for the good.
On the flip side, this set it put together REALLY well, I don't see any weak points, it's just sturdy! I do like the the detail put into it, It's more movie accurate then the last one, the playability is great,. The mini-figures are a good selection (maybe a clone or 2 more and hold the droids) and for those who don't have a turbo tank, this one would make a good addition to your collection or clone army! Either way, If you have one from the past, it would be a good pick up to have all 3, if not, this set is still a good purchase!
