I really can't say enough good things about this set. It is the Death Star play set we have all been asking for with tons of minifigs thrown in.

Recommendation: meh 4.5 / 5 from 423 reviews

My 6 yr old saved an entire yr to buy this, and in his words worth every penny. The un boxing itself is special. He was floored at the number of boxes (4) and the ringed 270 page manual. From step 1 onwards it was a great father/son experience. Broken down in stages, and amazingly al 3,800+ pieces were there, plus about 50 extras. Technically very difficult and while it was easy for me, my 6 yr old did struggle in parts, but overall was able to do about 60% of the set by himself. I would find the pieces and he would assemble. Fantastic durability once built, and play value is best I have seen in his considerably large collection. A must have set and worth every penny. Much better value vs most sets. My son loves it! Took about 14 hrs of build time. TIP: once opened all bags for a stage, separate all pieces by color. It will dominate your dining room table until completed, so be prepared!

This is a monumental set in a number of ways. First the build is very lengthy but rewarding and secondly the size of the finished product is huge. A whooping 42cm x 42cm x 43cm high.

It is a set for the lovers of Star Wars™, although its price can be a problem for some people. It reproduces mythical scenes from the saga. The selection of minifigs will make the most avid collectors happy. It has a multitude of mechanisms and movable elements, which give the set some playability.
