In you go, Solo! – By Justin G. on March 7, 2016
With the runaway popularity of The Force Awakens, it’s good to see that Lego hasn’t forgotten the original Star Wars Trilogy, giving us some fantastic new sets to recreate those classic scenes. Case in point, this Carbon Freezing Chamber set, which is one of the most iconic moments from The Empire Strikes Back. This relatively small set includes the chamber, three minifigures – Han Solo, Boba Fett and an Ugnaught – and a Han Solo in Carbonite piece.
Complexity: This is a fairly small set at 231 pieces, but a lot of the pieces are tiny and there are some Technic elements, so even experienced builders are going to need 30-45 minutes to assemble it. It may be a bit too tricky for very young builders.
Playability: This is a really fun set. You can lower Han Solo down one platform and with a tug and twist of a lever raise up the Carbonite frozen Han Solo. Then have Boba Fett haul him off to a waiting Slave I (sold separately, of course). The mechanism is a little tricky and can get stuck, but with patience it will work. The set is a bit fragile, so if your kid is inclined to carry it around some of the sections may break.
The Carbon Freezing Chamber is a fantastic addition to the Lego Star Wars line. It will make you wish for a larger Bespin set (not to mention Lando, Lobot and Leia minifigures), but at this price point (roughly twenty-five bucks), it will do just fine. It makes a great display piece as well as a fun birthday/Christmas gift.
