I had been waiting for this set for 3 years and I finally got it on my birthday. I was not disapointed. There are a lot of cool features that are not in the lego catalogue or on the lego website. Like there is a sliding blast door and a jail cell, etc, etc, etc. This Set was super amazing. I was also VERY happy with the minifigs. There were so many.
Another thing I like was Darth Vader's meeting room. Part of the table lifts up so some times I put a minifigure in it. Here is a list of pros and cons:
All of the rooms
The trash compactor (and monster)
The largeness of the set
And lots more...
The superlaser is cool, but falls off a lot
It is hard to position the minifigs in the rooms because it is hard to fit your hand in
Other than that there is no cons.
Details form movies 10/10
No offense, but, in my humble opinion, I must tell this Death Star is the most awfull thing I've seen into Lego. It does not look like a planet, the scale is absoloutly not good and honestly, does not look at all the legendary death star. It only have cool details from the movies' scenes... Good work for the review, and happy to see you've loved it! Regards - Jay
