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.
