Fun set, with great unique pieces.
" This is a fun set, with plenty of playability. So much interaction with Luke and Yoda is available, one could spend all day recreating scenes from both episodes V and VI.
The set contains a great mix of colors and unique pieces that bring Yoda's hut to life, straight from the swamps of Dagoba. There are several different areas where Luke can test his Jedi skills. 3 minifigures, including a mud stained R2-D2, are in the set. And watch out for that snake!
Great set, and true to the original episodes. "

Excellent minifigure addition.
" This is a really cool minifigure collection as an addition to a LEGO City set. Each mini has it's own accesory, as well a little workstation, and the new geode piece. The geode is really neat, and the set includes 2. "

God bless America
" This will probably be my favorite Brickheadz model. I have collected mostly the Star Wars ones, but I couldn't pass on this one.
The build is classic Brickheadz. Very straightforward. But the detail is amazing. The use of the little slope and wedge pieces is just right to replicate the folds of the gown adorning Lady Liberty.
If you are a patriotic American, you can't pass this one up. A much cheaper alternative to the Statue of Liberty set 21042. Thank you LEGO for this addition. Great job. "

An awesome remake, with great detail.
" What a great job LEGO has done with this redesign. The mark of a great set is accuracy to the actual ships, detail, and use of various building techniques. This one hit all of the points, and then some. Compared to older sets, the 75218 variant is much more sturdy in it’s construction. Additionally, much of the details added since the last version are right on. The back part of the fuselage has some great details added that bring it closer to what you would see on the actual X-wing.
It was a great build, with a lot of different techniques used to obtain the graceful angles and slopes needed. The mechanism used to deploy the wings into attack position is new, and more effective in my opinion. The cockpit and canopy looks amazing together.
Overall, a great buy. I do think the price point that LEGO has it at is high. I got mine through a 3rd party, so the value was better for me. But still a great set. Don’t miss out on this one. "

All that you would expect, and more.
" This set is another well-inspired NASA item. Along with the previous Saturn V rocket, the lunar lander from Apollo 11 is just awesome. The detail at this scale is great. Additionally, the brick built moon surface base is great, rather than having the set just perched by itself on the shelf.
A fairly easy build, there were a few unique parts that helped to give the lander it's authentic appearance. LEGO did a great job in using the gold colored pieces to represent the gold-foil wrap on the actual lander. All of the small details just add to the play value of this set.
At over 100 pieces, the piece per dollar value is pretty good. The instruction manual gives a very detailed history of the lander, as well as the space program as a whole. This will make a wonderful display piece for any space fan. "

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. "
