You may recall that last week I encouraged you to download the instructions for the SDCC mini Sith Infiltrator and build it yourself.
Being a SW mini fan, I did just that. I had to order a few of the new brackets and a couple of other parts from BrickLink to be able to do so.
It's not a bad looking model but unlike the other minis which are built to some microscale, this one is something of a hybrid: it's microscale but it has room for a Darth Maul minifig to stand on the back!
The best way I can think of to describe it is this: I'm sure you've seen 'sit on' spaceships outside supermarkets or in shopping malls for kids to ride on once you've fed it with a few coins. This is a model of one of those: A miniature version of the Infiltrator for Darth Maul to play on :-)
Consequently, in my opinion, it's a bit daft. It probably wouldn't take much to convert the back into something more realistic, though.
So, if you haven't already gathered the parts together, I wouldn't bother, and I certainly wouldn't recommend paying the $100 being asked for it at BrickLink at the moment...
Actually, having thought about it more, I guess it's no worse than, say, 10188 Death Star which is also a less-than-minifig-scale set populated by minifigs.
