"At first, I thought the set seemed a tad overpriced for what I perceived as just "A nice decorative showpiece" But as I went on, building the set I realized the amount of detail and love poured into this one set. From the tuning knob on the TV Clicking because they have a cog on the back hitting a rubber piece. To the action of inserting a game cartridge to the console actually working. Majority of the pieces for this set are printed, with the exception of the cartridge cover (Which I think is intentional for people making their own custom labels) and the back of the TV information.
Then there's of course the grandest of functions, and that's the ability to turn the handle on the side to make Mario run through the level. The designers at lego have really outdone themselves on this one. If you're a fan of Nintendo and Lego then this set would be a must have, as I believe this set is going to be very pricey to try and locate once its out of production."
"A very good depiction of the A-wing fighter. This set was also my first time building a UCS set and my first return to lego after a long pause from it. The set has a lot of very fine details like the seat, the nice curving of the hull my the center front. And the stand is nice and sturdy at seemingly any angle. If there's anything I'd have to criticize it would have to be the stickers on the cockpit, I personally wet the stickers to allow myself some leeway to adjust them to get them nice and straight and aligned correctly on both sides. But I could easily see these stickers being something someone would remove and re-apply a few times to get it right. Which in turn would weaken the glue and cause them to peel later down the line. The second would be a nitpick but it relates to the minifigure. While really nicely detailed I would've wished his arms were printed. I know a friend who have the UCS snow speeder and it came with two rebel pilots with printed arms. Feels like that print could've been repurposed with white ink for this figures' arms. But I'm sure things are a lot more technical than that. It would've just been nice to see."
