Pick this one! – By Erik on July 5, 2013
If you only have enough money to buy one new Star Wars Lego set, choose this one! It is by far the most bang for the buck. Great detail and a fun build! Highly recommended!
Lego Star Wars Tantive IV Kit – By Jason Anderson on March 27, 2012
This kit is not meant for play but for display. The build was a little challenging just due to the size and amount of elements. It is pretty fragile for a kit of it’s size; there are a lot of detail elements that come off easily just when moving the model. Other than that, for a Star Wars and Lego fan, it’s a great kit!
Definitely Worth It! – By Roman Gitiarz on November 27, 2011
This is, to date, still my largest LEGO set and it was definitely worth every penny. As an adult, I do not care much for the “playability” of a toy… my LEGO sets are display pieces. But this set has a very high fun factor if only because it is so enjoyable to build. I can take this set apart and rebuild it without getting bored. Such cannot be said of other LEGO models. Even the eleven engines are not as repetitive as I expected, since several of them differ from the others by a few parts. And the exclusive Captain Antilles minifig is an added bonus.
As a display piece, the model is fantastic. So much detail! I’ve had mine for well over a year, and it is still the highlight of my collection.
