Bought this for Christmas for my son and he loves it. Its very cool, it had 12-13 bags I believe. A few of the bags were challenging but we did it in a few days and it is very cool. Worth the money and its a good purchase. Comes with a lot and a lot of cool features for kids to enjoy!
This is one of the most enjoyable D2C Star Wars playset after seen some of the past release such as Death Star and Ewok Village. I originally had mixed feelings about this playset. After building it, I had actually enjoyed the sheer details and little cookie crumbs spread across the entire set and you need to have an eagle eye to spot those tiny details.
I watched a couple of the video reviews of this set before building. I think this set is underappreciated. The playability in this set is very high - my son couldn't stop playing during the build. Moreover, he was adding extra pieces to the "undercity" because even that area has some potential. The designer did a great job creating a model where the play spaces flow together smoothly and logically. The hallways that connect areas are not wasted space - they actually enhance playability. My son had confrontations taking place in the halls, but, thanks to the corners, was setting up figures to peek at the confrontations so the heroes could plan a rescue. When you look at this set in the store. Let your eye follow the path of the heroes in the story. The set helps create that path almost perfectly. It even adds in a few extra surprises. I found the carbon freezing chamber to be particularly brilliant with the swap-out action. The only downside, of course, is the price. Star Wars sets are priced at an unfortunate premium which makes them less accessible compared to other sets.
10188 Death Star was among my favourite sets as a child and I believe 75222 Betrayal at Cloud City will occupy a similar place in the collection of many younger Star Wars fans. The arrangement of the rooms works perfectly and I appreciate the smooth transitions between different areas of the model. Furthermore, this set includes two excellent vehicles and the minifigure selection is tremendous. However, there is significant room for improvement.
At $350 for just over 2,800 pieces, there are two ways in which you're paying a premium for 75222 Betrayal at Cloud City. First, LEGO Star Wars sets are almost always more expensive on average than other sets due to Disney/Lucasfilm licensing fees that LEGO has to pay, and that they in turn pass on to us. Second, this set includes 18 minifigures, and minifigs are more expensive to produce than the average 2×4 brick. As a result, we can't recommend buying this set solely on value for the volume of brick. Similarly, it's hard to recommend most of the set for innovative building techniques — with the exception of the remarkable carbon freezing chamber play feature, most of Cloud City itself is stacked bricks, plates, and panels. Where the set shines, though, is less in the underlying city than in the pair of vehicles and all the minifigures populating it.
