Awesome job by Sienar Fleet Systems.
" After enduring all of the other Tie variants from the EU, and the follow-up movies, my patience has paid off in this standard version of the ubiquitous Imperial Tie Fighter. Albeit with figures from the Han Solo movie, the ship itself is a representation of what was most closely represented in the Original Trilogy. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but my concerns were allayed when I got started on the build.
Of course, there is a lot of redundancy with these symmetrical sets, but the variety of pieces made it worth repeating twice. The border design on the panels is a fresh idea. Very simple, yet it gives a crisp appearance, and makes the panels really stand out. The fuselage is incredibly detailed, and with a minimum of sloped bricks as might be expected.
The entire build is very solid, and sturdy. Not what one would expect from this ship, but it is definitely swooshable, and will stand up to a hard G turn in atmosphere easily. The minifigures are pretty cool, but I really only expected a Tie pilot.
Amazing set altogether. I did pick it up on sale, so the value was a bit better than with the original price at release, but still worth every Imperial credit. "

Pulling the ears off a gundark not necessary.
" This is a great little set. I really enjoy the scene representations of the Original Trilogy movies. Along with the Death Star Escape, as well as many others, this set elicits nostalgia and maintains my faith that LEGO is keeping true to accurate play sets based on the movies.
First of all, I did pick it up on sale, but it's still a good deal even at the regular price point. There are many play value features on this set that make it a great addition to any collector's inventory. The bacta tank, medical exam table, and bed area leave plenty of options. There are quite a few unique pieces, as well as the 2 medical droids to keep Luke healthy after his encounter with the Wampa. The fold out design is neat, as it keeps the set compact, but allows for added room to display, or play out other Hoth adventures.
I've had my eyes on this set for a while, so when it went on sale, I couldn't wait any longer. I made a good choice, as this is definitely another winner in the continuing LEGO Star Wars saga.

Another winner for BrickHeadz.
" A great addition to the Brickheadz collection. This little chick is hopping around, hiding Easter eggs for all to find! The detailed flowers, and the little tufted feather on the head are awesome. "

Cute as a button puppy, full of love.
" LEGO certainly keeps my attention with the ever-growing selection of Brickheadz, and this Valentine's Day puppy is no disappointment. With a paw full of flowers, and a cute heart, this certainly says "I love you" to whomever this set is destined for. "

About as Christmas as it will get.
" This is another great Brickheadz duo. Santa and Mrs. Claus are really idealized in this set. As always, the details are what makes this so great. From the plate of cookies, to the little tree and gifts, hardly any aspect of our favorite holiday is missed.
This is a great addition to an ever-growing selection of Christmas LEGO sets. "

Revisited, but still awesome.
" Next to the Millenium Falcon, this is one of my favorite ships from the Star Wars Trilogy. The snowspeeder is absolutely iconic, and has a place in LEGO history. Is this a remake of a 20 year old classic? Yes. That's the idea. Have there been other ideations of the snowspeeder? Yes, and rightly so. Just as there have been many variants of the venerable X-wing fighter.
For starters, the build is again pretty straightforward. Nothing complicated, or altogether delicate. It holds together really well, so feel free to swoosh around the room all you want. The design of the cockpit canopy is great, allowing plenty of room to get Luke and Dak in their seats. Adding to the playability factor is the little cannon on the back, and the spring-loaded shooters.
An added benefit is the throwback Lando Calrissian figure. I couldn't wait to get this set when I saw it announced. It's a bit high on the price point, but still worth it. LEGO hit the mark on this one, in my opinion. "

Nice addition to the Star Wars theme.
" I really like the concept of this set, and it came together really nice in the end. 3 minifigures and the piece count of 282 make it a great value. I did get it from a big box store at a lower price than on LEGO's store website.
There is some good playability with the rotating medical table, which completes Anakin Skywalker's dark transformation to Darth Vader. The first part of the build is a little boring with it's redundancy in the steps, but that is understandable given the layout of the set.
Overall, this is a great set. I would definitely recommend this to any fan of Darth Vader, and the Star Wars theme.

Awesome value and playability.
" Another Star Wars set that gets it right. This set is a great value for the piece count. Plus, 3 mini figures tops it off. And a mouse droid! Some unique elements and moving parts make the playability better than most static vehicles/scenes. The movable platform, door, and the figure toppling mechanism add to the creative aspect of this set. I like the way the grappling hook is set up, as well as how you can have Leia holding onto Luke to swing across the chasm in their harrowing escape. Overall, a really great addition to any OTE fans’ collection. "

Great attention to details.
" Yet another great set in the Brickheadz collection. The little details make everything. Like Luke’s utility belt, and the appearance of messed up hair. I love the smaller scale of Yoda, as it keeps with how each character actually compares to each other. Simple build, but great details. Thanks, LEGO. "

Great addition to Microfighters.
" This is a really great set, hearkening back to Episode IV, with R2D2 and C3PO making their escape from the Empire, and running from the Stormtroopers on Dewbacks. While the piece count, at 177, is a bit low, the value is made up with the addition of a rare desert Stormtrooper with shoulder pauldron and backpack. The Dewback is admittedly out of scale, as is the escape pod; but this is Microfighters. With limited play value, the appeal, at least for me, was in the nostalgia of the Original Trilogy. Overall, a great addition to any collection. This is certainly one of my favorite Star Wars sets in it's simplicity. "
