"This isn't one of those sets that will blow people away in your display case, but the amount of playability sure will, especially if you have kids. Fans of the original triology and Empire Strikes Back couldn't ask for a better playset. At under 3000 pieces, the price point may be a deterrent, but the average size of each piece is way more than in an average set. Also, how much would you spend to get Luke, Leia, Han, Lando, C3PO, R2D2, Vader, Boba Fett and imperial forces in individual smaller sets? Not to mention the unique figures that make up the Cloud City personnel, and the fact that these figures are some of the best looks any of these characters have ever had. Han Solo looks magnificent. My son actually likes the Slave-1 ship in this set the best of any of them because it's easer for him to pick up and play with due to its realtively smaller size...but it's still plenty big, looks accurate, and fits Boba Fett inside just fine. Watching my son play with this set has definitely justified the price. He has much more complex and fun adventures with it than with any other set I own."
