"This is definitely a worthy addition to Star Wars canon vehicles. Goes great with Moloch’s speeder. Very solid construction like Moloch’s and great playability for kids. The missiles could have been hidden a bit better so I’ll likely display without them. Biggest con to the whole set is the instruction booklet. The navy blue is an awesome look but almost impossible to decipher in the instructions, so build with adequate lighting!"
"For the most part I bought this set to go with Han’s speeder and because the Moloch minifig is top notch. The build wasn’t anything special but once complete it really has some great features and is quite solid in structure. The bay to store the hounds is fantastic, the wheels make it appear as if its floating and the Moloch’s headpiece mold is very cool.
Big con is the rotating stud shooter as it is really hard to operate. As such, I’m leaving the studs out for now.
Overall, I’d recommend buying this, especially if to go with the Han set. Enjoy!"
"If you’re used to the buildable figures the actual build process here is nothing new. What is impressive (“most impressive”) is the detail, helmet feature and size. I have attached a few comparison pictures to show the difference with the 75111 version as well as against one of the larger (and probably still my favorite) buildable figures, General Greivous. Overall, a fun addition to the collection and the kids enjoy playing with it. Grab one!"
"Probably one of my all-time favorite builds. Super clever connections and techniques used. I have included a few pictures that speak to the complexity within the seemingly simple cylindrical design. Also, the thing is surprisingly sturdy. Dropped it from about 4 feet and broke into very distinct sections I was able to rebuild in about 5 minutes. Do not hesitate to add this to your collection."
"This set looks absolutely amazing on the shelf. The stand that comes with it allows for an angled display that really shows off some of the details on the top. I have built a good deal of UCS models and I must say this was surprisingly challenging due to the fact that it is VERY fragile in some spots. I would not recommend this item for “play” as you will be picking up the little skis all day. However, this is a must have for any OT fan."

Small silver skis on the bottom pop off super easily. But they are a great detail!

Added a single two stud brick to the front of the speeder which helped prevent thes upswept wing portions from falling off.
"I sure hope this is the first step in what will end up being a series of some awesome Ahch-To sets in the future. There is just so much you can do with this. First, Luke is simply great and a future classic mini. The metal hand is a fantastic touch. A few pro/cons if considering this set:
Pro: -LUKE LUKE LUKE -The build is surprisingly fun for the size. Nice difference if you build a lot of ships. -My kids LOVE playing with this. The interior is a lot of fun.
Con: -I guess my only con is that it needs to be spread out just a bit. Tough to use the interior without removing roof.
Overall, a completely worthwhile build and purchase. Have fun!"
"Waited to grab this on clearance as the initial price was a bit high for what is included (~13c/piece). This was a pretty quick, yet satisfying build. Here are some key takeaways:
Pro: -Love the blue highlights on the wings. -mini-figs have pretty good detail. Shore trooper is a bit different than the polybag scariff stormtrooper which is nice. -SUPER sturdy fuselage construction. Can Swoosh this thing for sure. -LOOKS COOL and great size
Con: -MSRP too high -Would be nice to adjust wings with one turn (like Xwing) -Almost impossible to pick up without launching rocket"
"This review will focus on a few of the details in this set that I believe make it unique and worth a purchase. First, let's get out of the way that the final product looks GREAT displayed. You've seen it in other reviews and it's clearly a cool piece for a bookshelf. However, a few things made this build a neat experience.
-The strength of the final build is impressive. The way the wing connects to the arm is something I haven't seen before. Really locks up tight.
-The wings feature some neat details that make them an interesting build where one would think it would be a bit boring because of the repetition as you do build the same section 4 times (top and bottom). However, some of the techniques are exciting.
-The minifig has some great printed details only found on this UCS version. I included a picture of the detail on the wrist.
-The stand is also impressive as it allows you to angle the TIE as it is on a ball joint.
-Only real negative is that there could be some more detail inside the cockpit itself. The printing on the external components are nice, but the inside only has a few stickers and basic joystick for steering.
Overall, the set is really nice and definitely belongs in your Star Wars Lego collection."
"This is one of those sets I had walked by a few times and placed on the wish list but was in no hurry to purchase. Generally, I opt for vehicles rather than scenes as they display better IMO. It sounds silly but the details in the minifigs, most specifically Darth's two piece helmet, is what sold me on this set. REALLY cool using the rubber pieces to hold the helmet and make it look like it is mid-install. The injured Anakin is a great addition as well.
Overall, set is a nice little build with great mini's. I know some people would qualify the droids as extra minifigs and they are pretty neat, but definitely secondary to Darth/Anakin and E.P. (Although the tools included with the droids are very cools extra details.)"
"Show me another set for this price point that offers such great minifigs and scores a 10 on the nostalgia scale. This was a quick build but sits right beside my Slave 1 UCS as one of my favorites. Super excited this set is out there as I was really bummed when I didn't grab it in the earlier Mos Eisley Cantina set. As mentioned elsewhere, it's missing an R2-D2 but don't let that hold you back."
