Big in size but gorgeous! – By Chris on July 17, 2016
As an adult Lego builder who has recently just started building, I have to say that the Star Wars UCS sets are fantastic and this set is no exception. All year I’ve been debating on getting this set as it didn’t look like any spectacular and honesty the cockpit was a bit blocky looking for my taste however after picking up set on Amazon Prime Day I have to say this build was fantastic! It definitely looks much better in person than the online reviews show and while its a lot of repetition there are some really neat build techniques in the wing panes and in the interlocking mechanisms that connect the panels to the main body.
I highly recommend this set if you’re a Star Wars Lego fan but make sure you have shelf space for it!
Thank you Amazon – By Marc A. Gauvin on July 14, 2016
Great build for any star wars fan. Big thanks to Amazon for having this on sale during prime day.
TIE One On! – By Benjamin Haag on June 27, 2016
I am about 2/3 of the way through this kit, as I type this; please attribute any typos to my fingers itching to dive back into this beautifully designed model.
First: It is LARGE. I had not, when reading the blurb on the website and in a few reviews, realized that the dimensions as stated on-screen would create as much of a presence when in their full LEGO’d glory. The panels, by way of example, are about the size of our dinner plates, and the central cockpit/propulsion structure is large and heavy enough to keep two rambunctious kittens from their usual “Let’s help out human with whatever he’s doing by swatting some of those parts across the room.”
Second: the designer did a truly beautiful job of re-creating the shape and “flow” of the movie version (I was about to write “real thing” for a second there) with clever and liberal use of angled bricks that work as well aesthetically as they do structurally — the aforementioned central assembly is surprisingly solidly built, when built.
Because of the structure of the fictional design of the ship, much of the construction is redundant: you’ll use about 4-6 of the parts bags for the panels alone. One technique I’ve used, when I’m impatient to see the final result, is building matching parts simultaneously…it can reduce the potential for tedium. This said — it in no way detracts from the joy of building this thing; that’s simply the way the “original” was designed.
Lastly — when you are done, the size and attention to detail will result in an impressive and impossible-to-miss display…having spend many hours of my childhood re-creating _Star Wars_ battles with the action figures and playsets that were so popular in the 70’s (and 80’s), building this was as much about happy nostalgia as it was about doing what I hadn’t been able to do when I was 10 or 12 — see something cool in a catalog and just ordering it with my own hard-earned adult dollars :).
Awesome! – By Joel on June 21, 2016
The box came in perfect condition and the set wasn’t missing any pieces. This build was much easier and more repetitive compared to the Slave 1 build, therefore I could see a small child completing this build successfully and without any trouble or concentrated supervision. The simplicity of the build doesn’t take away from the way it looks, it is very detailed and very sturdy. The layout was well thought out, but I wish they had developed the cockpit to house the Tie Fighter Pilot instead of the displaying him on the stand. Overall, this is another successful implementation into the well developed line of UCS Star Wars LEGO sets, and I look forward to the 2016 UCS Death Star build coming later this year.
