Bright Green. Whoops.
" I ordered these without reading the reviews. Yeah that was dumb. I, like many others, was under the assumption they would be the original dark green, but they weren’t. Base plates are great, so this product is still useful.
Just don’t buy it if you want the former shade of green.
Hey I learned my lesson though. And can we get the original green back again soon? Heck maybe in the size of the grey baseplate (48x48 I believe), that’d be amazing!

AMAZING set...why so much hate?
" This set is awesome. It comes with an appropriate selection of figures with good printing and there are TONS of them. Of course that’s how it should be in this expensive of a set. The build is great and has many iconic scenes with good features and playability. (My favorite feature is the trash compactor and chute.)
The majority of the negative reviews on this set complain that this set has no difference from the Death Star released in 2008. Well DUH. Did you not look at the set before you bought it? Haha. I was one who wasn’t able to pick up the earlier rendition, so I was glad to have this opportunity.
The one REAL negative is the price. It definitely shouldn’t have inflated that much.
However, this is an awesome set, and I would definitely recommend it. It won’t disappoint.

Good Value
" This set comes with two fully equipped Ninja and bady, along with a good build for a bike. For $20 thus set gets you some good stuff. "

Cool Set
" The price is good for the amount of pieces in this set. The figures are great too. I personally don’t love the Kai figure, but the others are awesome. The actual snake build looked a bit underwhelming, but after completion I can say it certainly isn’t. It looks great. I love the addition of the throne.
Also, I can’t say this enough: the extra weapons are the best.

Wow.
" Mechs. They’re awesome. This one is definitely the coolest mech I’ve gotten. I’m pumped for the summer wave of 2020 one, that looks awesome too.
This set has a good selection of minfigures, and the Mech speaks for itself. It looks amazing. It’s pretty stable and fits a figure in easily. It has good articulation—for the most part.
I have two problems with it. First, the price. It should be around $70.
Second, there’s no movement in the knees, but that’s normal for LEGO mechs.
Despite those two things, this set is great and I would highly recommend.

Why is Ninjago sooooo Good?
" This set is great. And oh my gosh, the ninja in this wave look awesome. The white with their color looks amazing, and the spring green katanas make it even better. The three figures in this set are awesome. The dragon build executes a dragon impressively for such a small set. Also, I love that LEGO is giving so many useful extras pieces (like weapons),I really appreciate that.
Would recommend, and I’m a little old for Ninjago, but how can I say no to those figures. Ninjas are always cool.

Just your Average Battlepack
" Don’t get me wrong, average isn’t a bad thing. I would recommend this set.
Pros: The minfigures: Sith Trooper, Jet Troopers, and a cool new Final Order officer. As with any Battlepack, it’s purpose is the minfigures, and this set delivers there.
The build is okay.
Cons: The officer in this set is also a con. It makes army-building very difficult. Though I liked getting an officer, it also means that I won’t buy more then one of these set. Another sith trooped would have been ideal.
The price is a little high, as with all battlepacks nowadays.

A True Battlepack
" This battlepack is another great one. Four minfigures that are pretty generic for army building and at the same time very unique. The speeder build is modest, but looks good and creates something consistent with in-universe vehicles. The amount of accessories for the figures is also a plus. Over-all a solid set.
Now my thoughts irrelevant to the actual value of the set. Stud-shooters are a necessary evil. I wish they’d go away, but I also get that they add a level of playability that I would have appreciated back when I was in the target age range for these sets.
The blank heads is a downer, but of course there is no context or clue for what LEGO should have done for them, seeing as mandolorians never take if there helmets, well at least the ones in “The Mandolorian”, which is the inspiration for this set.
I also would have preferred jet packs instead of capes, but once again the TV show character sports a cape for the majority of the season, and they want to emulate that. It was nice to get the new versions of the cape in several different colors here, however.
My last issue is with battle packs in general, and that is their steadily rising price. It’s getting too high!
That’s my rant. I apologize for the length.

Amazing set... but pricey.
" This set is about perfect—not considering the price. The mini figure selection was a good choice, and it was great to finally get a Zuckuss figure. One thing I would have really appreciated is if Boba had his rare arm printing. I guess that remains exclusive to larger USC sets, which is fine. The actual build is an amazing rendition of slave I that still captures it beautifully in a scaled down version. I was happy to be able finally add it to my collection in a size similar to my other Star Wars ships. My one grievance was the price. For the thousand pieces included I would have liked to have seen it at $100, or even $110. "
