I got a bad feeling about this!
" I have wanted to get this set for a very long time and finally decided to during the Coronavirus Lockdown.
On face value it's absolutley beautiful too look at. The level of exterior detail is incredible and building was both challenging and fun. There are no repetitive parts, not unlike some of the larger set such as the Big Ben piece.
However, I do have some issues with this set I think you really need to consider before spending £650.
Firstly, minifigures. I like that they chose to include characters from the old and the new. However, every photo I have sent this too, be it friends or family, the first question is where is R2 or Obi Wan?
Secondly, the structure in some places is very flimsy. The rear bottom where the thrusters are located come apart very easily and it's difficult to fix. Do not allow children to come within a metre of this set, they will tear to shreds without trying!
Thirdly inner details. I understand engineering this to work required sacrifice, however, the whole right rear of the ship is a large empty space. One of the corridors could easily have been put in here with secret floor panels to hide caracters (just like the film). I have added the picture of large empty space which goes unused.
Finally the cockpit. The top doesn't lift, you have to take it apart to get inside and the detail of the controls was really cheap, it's the same generic control panel brick (6152814) Lego have used since the 90s. A sticker with the design from the actual Falcon should have been used, (especially when you include a bio about the graphic designer in the instructions, a couple of extra stickers wouldn't hurt).
Overall, I don't have regrets buying this set and it sits proudly in my room. However, if you want a set with details and nostalgia that you can actually touch without issue, I highly recommend the Death Star or the Hogwarts first. "
