"Recently got back into LEGO and STAR WARS after the new movie and chose this set as my first "adult" build. Actually I chose the x-wing, but it is backordered and this set was (and probably IS) available on amazon at almost $20 less than the lego list price. So I got it.
This set is amazing. The design is quite incredible and was a blast to put together.
Built this sucker while watching "Return of the Jedi". The ship is quite heavily featured in the movie and it is a blast to see it streak by on the screen as you are building it.
It made me think though... where is Luke? He came on this mission too; it would have been awesome to have him instead of one of the "Rebel Troopers".
Well, one of the Rebel Troopers actually looks kinda like Luke. A spare black hand and lightsaber later, I had made myself an original Endor Luke Skywalker. Now the gangs all here!
Pros: Just plain awesome, and a good deal if you can get it for like $83 on amazon like I did. Otherwise, an average deal.
Cons: Bottoms of the side wings don't look great. This is different from the ultimate collectors version (no longer made) that has wings smooth on both sides. Oh well, just display it in attack position! But they didn't give you a stand... gotta make one I guess.
Overall a dream."
