Recommendation: yes 4.7 / 5 by Rob

Whilst 75183 Darth Vader Transformation will boost your dark side minifigure collection, teach you a new way to build a droid and leave you with a cute, circular vignette for display, it's those standout play features that will have you returning to this set more often than other sets in your collection will. As with all location-based LEGO Star Wars creations, there's no ship to swoosh, if that's your thing, but there's so much fun to be had here to recommend this set as not only one that you make sure not to miss out on, but that you perhaps grab as soon as you can. After all, you don't want to realise just how good this set is after it's no longer available, to be left thinking ‘NOOOOOOoooooOOOOOoooooOOOOO'.

Recommendation: meh 4.65 / 5 from 54 reviews

Darth Vader™ Transformation," Review: Pros: Great minifigures (Burned Anakin, Darth Vader & Palpatine). The droids are a nice addition. Cons: Incredibly fragile set, prone to break. Overall: Score: 8/10 This set really captures that scene in Episode III: Revenge Of The Sith. The minifigures let you recreate the operation of Darth Vader. The only problem is the set is very flimsy. Other than that this set is brilliant!

Recommendation: yes 4.5 / 5

This is a really cool construction set that Star Wars and LEGO fans will have fun building and then playing with. It really recreates that iconic moment in Revenge of the Sith when Anakin becomes Darth Vader.

I highly recommend the set to anyone who does not own these minifigures and it is worthy of consideration even if they already form part of your collection, although there are lots of other Star Wars sets competing for attention in this impressive summer wave!
