Empire Strikes Back, what not to love
" The viper droid is menacing and mysterious. Lego have done it again capturing a icon star wars droid and giving it the lego treatment. The probe droid is certainly one the most unique droids star wars. The build is oozing with little details from its five manipulator arms extending from a central pod as well as sensors and receivers and sensors covered the domed head which is able to move too.
The complete complexity and detail is captured hear faithfully. Included also is small stand comprised mostly of white and few grey pieces that is meant to mimic the surface of Hoth this has to be one of lego star wars most epic complete builds.
Lego star wars designers have excelled again.
A instant classic.

" When it comes to iconic vehicles from video and film what do you think of surely the ecto 1 is up there with the greats. The ecto1 a 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor Futura Duplex was a sort of ambulance come funeral car hence the duplex name. Like other car manufactures at the time Cadillac supplied bare bone chassis for coach builders to build vehicles around. This is how Miller-Meteor came to use this as a basis for their ambulance come hearse. For obvious reasons this car achieved critical claim but sad was left to rust in car park lot at universe studios. A Petition was put together which happily saw this iconic piece of film restored to it original condition.
Lego Carl Merriam Mike Psiaki and Ghost Corps have captured everything that makes the ecto iconic. From its sleek Cadillac lines rocket light tail fins ghost sniffer accurate machinery in the back the model is oozing in details. Its pays great homage to this iconic car that will please fans old and new. "

Kids can recreate scenes from Star Wars: The Mandalorian Season 2 and play out their own speeder-bike-riding, missile-shooting battle stories with this Trouble on Tatooine (75299) building toy. Includes The Mandalorian and Tusken Raider LEGO® minifigures, each with weapons for roleplay battles, plus a LEGO figure of the Child (the popular character affectionately known as Baby Yoda). The speeder has a LEGO® minifigure seat and saddlebag for the Child to sit in. The set also features a buildable Tusken hut hideout and spring-loaded, missile-shooting ballista for the Tusken Raider. Great for solo building and play or for sharing the fun with friends, this awesome construction toy makes the best birthday present, holiday gift or surprise treat for creative kids aged 7 and up. The speeder measures over 1.5 in. (3 cm) high, 5 in. (13 cm) long and 1.5 in. (3 cm) wide, and this complete set combines brilliantly with other LEGO® Star Wars™ buildable playsets for creative play. Thinking of buying this 277-piece set for a newcomer to LEGO® building? No worries. It comes with easy-to-follow illustrated instructions so they can build with confidence. There are LEGO® Star Wars™ sets to thrill fans of all ages, whether they want to recreate famous scenes, roleplay their own stories or just build and display the authentic construction models. LEGO® components meet the highest industry standards to ensure they are consistent and compatible for a simple, strong connection every time – it’s been that way since 1958. LEGO® bricks and pieces are tested to the max to make sure they meet stringent safety standards.

it's not just about the figuers
" The figures are the outstanding part of this set. Whitest the baby yoda and sand person aren’t much to ride home about but still your typical high quality you expect from modern Lego. The beskar armour Mandalorian takes it to a whole new level. It has incredible detail with the mud horn and control pad all with metallic finishes and Lego rare arm printing. My only wish is it included a jet pack.
That’s not just all you get three builds being the sand people hut the sand people crossbow thing and the speeder bike again pay great homage and accuracy to what we see in the first episode of the season 2 of the Mandalorian. "

Fans can build their own missile-shooting LEGO® brick version of the iconic Imperial TIE Fighter (75300) and reimagine scenes from the classic Star Wars™ trilogy with this buildable playset. Includes 2 LEGO® Star Wars™ minifigures: a TIE Fighter Pilot with a blaster pistol and a Stormtrooper with a blaster, plus an NI-L8 Protocol Droid LEGO figure for role-play adventures. The TIE Fighter features an opening LEGO® minifigure cockpit and 2 spring-loaded shooters for action-packed play. Great for solo building or sharing the fun with friends and family, this set makes the best birthday present, holiday gift or surprise treat for creative kids and any Star Wars™ fan aged 8 and up. Measuring over 6.5 in. (17 cm) high, 5.5 in. (14 cm) long and 6 in. (15 cm) wide, it makes a striking display piece in any child’s bedroom between playtime battles. Looking for an engaging building toy for a child who is new to LEGO® sets? This 432-piece Star Wars™ set comes with clear instructions so they can build independently and with Jedi-level confidence. LEGO® Star Wars™ sets are fantastic for kids (and adult fans) to recreate scenes from the saga, play out their own creative stories or just build and display the collectible construction models. Ever since 1958, LEGO® components have met stringent industry standards to ensure they are compatible and connect consistently – no need to use the Force. LEGO® components are dropped, heated, crushed, twisted and rigorously analysed to satisfy demanding safety standards.

big isn't always better
" A less expensive tie fighter that Lego did extremely well. Compare to the larger variants scaling whilst there prop and cons for each this new tie fighter is easily the best set that has captured the spherical shape of tie fighter that is iconic to its look. All though there isn’t much room in this model for a detailed cockpit I do appreciate the small details that are accurate to the source material. Very impressive for this price point.
The cockpit is a tad too big for the model in terms of accuracy. The front shield cockpit piece is the same size you’d find on the first order and striker tie fighters maybe a smaller shield could have been used. The dark grey and light grey ball joints are just not right ugly and not aesthetically pleasing for what else is an amazing set… but I understand Lego philosophy hear having both the cup and ball in different colours makes them easily distinguishable.
Mini figures are quality nothing more the high standards we expect from Lego.
Big isn’t always better Recommend it ?
Absolutely. "

great set, but durablity might be a problem.
" Justin Ramsden has done incredible job designing this set. The cool about lego is transcends Ive seen many non lego fans marvel about this cool set. The idea of flipping it to the right side up or upside is a cool concept as well being able to display the set apart. You can't fault the set for design its brilliant has lot attention to detail with stickers and prop pieces. You can really see the love the designers put into the set.
My one gripe with the set is the same others have mentioned durability. The roof comes away from the posts and some of the main structure separates from the floor, just above the front doors and starts to bow.
I rebuilt the set all seems fine now so far, but i have seen this issue with many sets that have reviewed on social media. My personal feelings is the structure should of been extra stud wide. The other issue is attaching the ball joints requires a lot force more force the a single stud wide can support which may account for many people issues with this set.
However its not a deal barker the set is too good for any stranger things fan miss out on. i love the set and all its Easter eggs it doesn't disappoint. "
