It is a great set, super detailed and great for everyone. Always loved LEGO but lot interest over the years. After finishing this set I can't stop thinking of buying a new one and start a collection.

On the whole, I am unimpressed by this set. The build is pretty bad – it looks bad, is pretty cramp, and doesn't really play that well. The minifigures are the strong suit of the set but I don't like that new stormtrooper minifigure, and the price is mediocre.

Rather like 75203 Hoth Medical Chamber (reviewed here), the question is will younger fans get much play value from 75229 Death Star Escape? Once the door has been dropped, the platform pulled in and the heroes have completed their daring swing, there really isn't much to do apart from repeat the process. This feels more like a set for collectors to display rather than younger fans to play with.

75229 Death Star Escape is certainly a set which has been designed primarily for play and it excels in that regard. The functions are simple but they are enjoyable and I am impressed by the effective use of space within such a small model. Moreover, the minifigures are excellent and I like the new Stormtrooper, although becoming accustomed to his updated helmet might take some time.

For the size of this set, it's a good build. It has the original trilogy vibe, and represents the scene very well. It looks nice enough to be on display, but there are also fun play features, making it a good choice for both adults and children. I can see AFOLs having several scenery sets on display. Added bonus is the figures. Both Leia and Luke are popular characters, and this is a relatively cheap set to score them.

If seen through the lens of a set meant to be played with and having completed the build – this is a wonderful set for re-enacting movie scenes and extending the imagination. It was never meant to be a display piece. As long as you have the right mindset from the start, it should not disappoint. A reasonably priced set with 3 minifigures, it will keep you entertained for a bit and probably make you want to watch the movie again.
