This is honestly one of the best sets this year...its a perfect blend of play set and display set...building it was very fun and surprisingly it wasnt very repetitive despite the walls looking the same..my only small issue was that i wish it had a base plate on the bottom..which would of been useful for when you want to pick up the set and hold the tie advanced...possibly could of added some stability but this set isnt supposed to be moved around and its an easy thing to add if you really want that(like it did)... Like many of my reviews i dont like to bore anyone with many details they might already know...Just know that if you are a Darth Vader fan(Like me) or a Lego Star wars fan then get this set...you will not regret it...it was a fun build and its a great display set for adults and a great play sets with kids..minifigures are great too, no krennic but its still a great group of figs...you can always add a Director Krennic minifigure to the mix anyway since hes not a difficult figure to get ;)...All in all an amazing set... Vader definitely has the high ground now! haha
It's the Christmas season, for goodness sake! Why would you ship a LEGO set without any outer covering or box and leave it on the porch. It was the first thing my grandson saw when he got home from school today, spoiling a Christmas surprise.
75251 Darth Vader's Castle is undoubtedly among the best Star Wars sets that I have constructed in 2018. Its monolithic exterior looks spectacular on display and includes wonderful detail, despite being fairly monochromatic. I am particularly impressed by the trans-red windows and the trans-orange lava flow which really captures attention at the base of the fortress. The small TIE Advanced x1 is also very good, offering excellent play value.
While we were certainly impressed with a few of the building techniques and the many play features of the finished model, at $130 for just over a thousand parts and only one canonical new minifig, 75251 Darth Vader's Castle is not a great value. Most of the parts are black plates, and the minifig selection doesn't quite add up for a true Rogue One scene — a new variant of Orson Krennic or Vader's attendant Vaneé would have made much more sense than a non-canonical blue pilot. Nevertheless, this set did exceed our expectations based on the official photos released several weeks ago, and we were impressed with the improved packaging, excellent naked Vader, and the adorable TIE Advanced.
This is one of those LEGO sets that appears better on the box than in real life. From the front it's a great display piece, but inside it is fragile and difficult to access for play. 75251 Darth Vader's Castle almost feels incomplete – there are too many gaps and open space, conveniently hidden on the box by careful image composition. It is an exciting build, but this set tries to do too much and chokes on its aspirations.
