"I have been a fan of both LEGO and Star Wars since I was five. One of my favourite locations in the Star Wars universe is Cloud City, so when this set was announced I was both excited and concerned. Excited because I finally got to have my own Cloud City. Concerned because it was a play set rather than a UCS set like I purchase nowadays. I couldn't resist though, and I am NOT disappointed. Yes, it's a play set, and guess what -- that's what makes it so great! I'm a rather reserved adult who enjoys the build experience of the UCS sets, and have them very nicely displayed in my home office, but with this set I can't help myself from actually playing with it. I'll probably tinker with designing an outer shell for it so it can be displayed more like a model when not being played with, but it's great as-is. It invites play. There are so many areas in one model covering all the key scenes. It is very smartly designed. It also has a generous number of cool and rare minifigs. So, in summary, don't hesitate if you're on the fence about this set. Go ahead and spoil your kids, or your inner child, and enjoy it for what it is -- a fantastic play set of an iconic Star Wars location!"
