"LEGO Star Wars - Death Star Final Duel - Set 75093
This set was on my watch list for quite awhile, as it depicted one of my favorite scenes from the Star Wars Saga. I put it off a bit, because I was unsure about some of the features not being screen accurate. I finally made my decision to purchase it because of the figures that were included.
The detail in the figures. We have seen all of these characters in minifigure form before, however, the ones included in this set have special value. Darth Vader is featured with a new sculpt for his helmet, which is far more screen accurate than his predecessor. The Emperor has a new color of face. It is interesting, however I prefer light grey as his skin color. Luke is the same as before, but this is my first Luke figure with the darker color of hair. There are also two guards who have a multi-colored cape.
The details in the set. This set has wonderful details. The Emperor's chair is built up, and looks great. There is also the print on the windows, which is very screen accurate. Perhaps the best bit of the set are the scenes featured. The set is split up into three sections which show off all of the great scenes which took place in the throne room. For example, there is the "tube" where the Emperor is thrown to his death, and the balcony which Darth Vader cuts down to get to Luke.
The action features. None of them feel gimmicky, and I feel that they are depicted subtly, without a big red lever pointing them out.
The doors leading into the throne room are no where to be seen in the movie. Instead, there is a sort of elevator with red lights striped across it.
The "tube" where the Emperor falls to his death has no feature for the Emperor to slide out or be accessible, so you must pick up the entire set to get him out.
As you can see, there are hardly any cons. All I can say is, if you're thinking about getting this set, go ahead. Get it. Some may be skeptical, as it is more-or-less a play set, but I urge you to pick it up, because of how well it represents the legendary scene..."
