AT-Scuttler
" This was a set I was sure I would miss, given the fact that it doesn't even appear in the Last Jedi. The Hux minifigure could have swayed me, but what swayed me most was the fact that I got it on sale at half price. What I found pleasantly surprised me. I would happily pay the RRP for this set, which is something I find myself saying less and less about Lego as of late. The piece count and size of the walker is great, the minifigures are decent and I have no problem with the scuttling mechanism; I think it works really well and is a fantastic feature. My only major issue is the fact that you can't move the head, but this problem shouldn't put you off. "

Bombs Away!
" This is the first Lego Star Wars set in a long while (since the Republic Frigate) where I feel that the £100 price tag is justified. The prices of Star Wars sets are steadily increasing and are getting into the realms of 'not worth it' any more, which is becoming more and more disappointing. However, this certainly isn't the case here. This set looks amazing, has some good minifigs and interesting features.
The set itself looks fantastic and is quite large. The interior is spacious and allows for great playability with the minifigs. The bombing feature and missiles work excellently, and the bombing feature itself makes for a fun and interesting build. The colour scheme looks amazing and as far as I can tell, the overall build resembles the actual craft accurately. The only slight niggle I have is that the ball turrets can't move side-to-side, which is a little annoying, but not a major problem.
The minifigs are equally great. The pilots have extremely detailed torsos, legs and helmets. Holdo is a nice minifig. I can't help feel like an extra Resistance trooper or crew member would have been a nice addition so you could fully crew the Bomber. Maybe Lt Connix. Or some alien minifig.
Overall, this set is well worth the price and looks stunning. Like a proper Rebel piece of kit. All I can say is: when are we getting a Dreadnought to destroy? "

'It's time for the Jedi to end.'
" I really like this set, as one of the few Last Jedi sets I have right now. The minifigs are excellent, but a Chewbacca or Caretaker would have really made this set exceptional. The little hut itself is nice and looks fantastic, although it could have been made more accurate by having the X-wing door instead of the piece of cloth, which I thought was a nice throwback in the film. It would have also been nice to have some of the other little trinkets Luke has in his hut, such as the compass or Jedi crusader pendant.
They could have maybe even have made the set a bit bigger by having the Force tree with the books and a Yoda ghost minifig. Perhaps this is an idea for another smaller set, which could include the Caretakers as well.
Anyway, aside from these ideas, it really is a great set and I highly recommend it.

Raaaaarrgh!
" The Chewbacca is by far the best part about this. The Falcon microfighter looks alright, but has been done before and I generally don't like the whole microfighter idea; I far preferred the old planet sets. The only reason to buy this is if you want a Last Jedi Chewie, which is only the same as the Force Awakens one. That being said, my girlfriend bought this for me, so it now has a fond place in my heart due to sentimentality. "

" This is a nice little battle pack, which is a welcome change from the norm. Battle packs usually have great minifigs but a poor build, but this isn't the case for this set.
The set isn't a vehicle from any of the films, but fits in well with other bigger sets (such as the UCS Sandcrawler) and the minifigs also complement the Tatooine sets. The Tusken Raider looks cool and it's nice to have some extra Jawas pottering around.
Overall, I highly recommend this set and think it is one of the best battle packs in a long time.

Rebirth of Darth Vader
" Fantastic set that depicts an iconic scene well. The play features work really well and are quite fun to use to play out the scene. The minifigures are all class and the medical droids are well built. No flaws to it really, even priced well for a Lego set! "

'I Want Them Alive'
" Bought this set primarily for the minifigures, which didn't disappoint. All very well made, with good printing and moulds. The speeder bike is also a decent build, but could have been slightly larger. Overall, a decent battle pack. "

Good minifigs, set a little lacking.
" Whilst this set has its merits (namely the minifigs and the decent build), it could have been vastly improved by making it a slightly more expensive and bigger set, to include part of the interior bar area with some interesting minifigures (Sidan Ithano, Varmik, etc). But I will review it as it is. Perhaps a modular interior could be incorporated in a future set.
Firstly, the minifigures are great, a nice selection of First Order troops and Kylo Ren looks cool. His Cape is fantastically done and I like his helmet and face printing. Maz Kanata is also brilliant. The head mould is perfect and the torso printing is on point. Finn is pretty standard, but really completes the set well. Might have been nice to see Rey as well, or even Han.
The set itself is good, but slightly small considering the size of Maz's Castle. For the price, I can't help but feel that it could have included a little bit more wall section or at least a little interior. The build was fun and interesting, and I would definitely recommend this (especially whilst on sale) and it makes a decent scene piece.
In summary, good minifigs, decent build, wish it had been a £70 set with interior and some other unique minifigs. "

Pure Magic
" I was a little reluctant to buy this as it is a lot of money and would take all my Christmas money. After tossing and turning with the decision, I decided to buy it.
As an aside, I had to order it from the website, as my local Lego Store didn't have any in stock. So, as a little review of the website: I was very pleased with everything. Ordering and checkout were simple, I ordered the Castle on Christmas Eve and it came on the 27th, which I thought was very quick considering it is the Christmas period.
The Castle itself is absolutely breathtaking. It is exquisitely detailed and the design is gorgeous. It makes a fantastic centre-piece for any collection. I have mine on the edge of the desk by the window, and the crisp winter sunlight silhouettes it perfectly, making it truly magical. The interior rooms are all well done, with some easter eggs from a multitude of the classics that just adds an extra dimension to the set. Although some may say the rooms are a little cramped, I honestly can't see how it could be designed any other way without sacrificing the perfect scaling and making it look a little ridiculous. One of only a few sets I would call truly perfect.
The minifigures are also very nicely done and pair well with the individual minifigure series released prior to this. For the sheer size of the Castle, a few more might have been a welcome addition and would have certainly done the set a greater justice. Perhaps Goofy and Pluto, or Aurora (considering their absence from the aforementioned minifigure series) or even a small selection of Princesses.
In summary, this set is well worth the price, which is a nice surprise considering the price tag. It looks absolutely stunning and gives off that signature Disney sparkle combined with a fun Lego twist. Would highly recommend this to anyone and I hope they do some more Lego sets. My suggestions would include the Dwarve's Cottage from Snow White, Elsa's Ice Castle from Frozen, Beast's Castle from Beauty and the Beast and Rapunzel's Tower from Tangled. "

'Why does everyone want to go back to Jakku?!'
" The biggest problem with this set far and away is the price. If it wasn't for such a hefty price tag given the size of the set, it would be fantastic for what it is.
The minifigures are great, especially Teedo and Unkar. Fantastic moulding and fine additions to my collection. For the price tag, Constable Zuvio or maybe another of Jakku's may odd-looking aliens could have been included.
The set itself is a decent set piece. The printed sheet is wonderfully done and the finished product looks good. Maybe some work benches or one of the other little stalls would have made this feel like a more complete Niima Outpost.
The Luggabeast is also fantastic, detailed and looks just like it does in the film. It might have been nice to see a Happabore and the fountain, maybe even including Finn, which would have made it worth the price tag.
Overall, it's a decent little set, but I would recommend only getting it when in the sale.
