Lego Mania Fan Review

Everyone loves to hate a bad guy and they do not get much greater than Darth Vader and the fear of the 'End of Days' Death Star. The Death Star symbolises some of our biggest childhood fears and if we are brave enough, some of our adult fears - an alien invasion with the power to destroy our world. This fear is more than visible in this film and we can all empathise with the lead characters in their quest to stop this from happening. At the same time however we have to admire the bold, intricacies of this master weaponry. A star ship fit to destroy worlds. Lego encapsulates the essence of this monster with precise depth and detail; scenes, themes, characterisation and drama are all perfectly portrayed. Superlaser control rooms, Imperial conference chamber, hangar bay with moving launch rack and Lord Vader's maintenance room all entwined in this incredible model. Further, turbo lasers with spring-loaded shooters with seating for 2 Death Star Gunners and two movable turbo laser towers. Better yet, this package would only be complete with some characters to fill the rooms; 23 iconic minifigures and 2 Droids. This is an action packed opportunity to allow the inner kid of you to play, re-enact or model scenes for fun or for display. This is a difficult piece to source which makes it even more sweeter in our opinion.

Retiring of the Death Star

This wonderful model will be hitting the Hall of Fame in the discontinued area for 2020. If anything, this allows this product to secure its status as a classic and a valuable piece of Star Wars merch and more importantly Lego/Star Wars history.

This model homes 23 minifigures with 2 Droids in a mammoth 4016 piece masterpiece. It is suitable for ages 14+ perfect for sharing with family and building memories. This is an incredibly important piece to hold for any Lego or Star Wars collector and is rarely available online. With the discontinuation of this model it is only going to become more valuable and more difficult to source. Meauring over 16" (41cm) high and 16" (42cm) wide, this is a large, time consuming model that requires attention, love and dedication.

Customer Reviews of This Build

This model is coming in hot at a rating of 4.8 out of 5 in Amazon and 4.2 out of 5 on Lego. The cost is brought into question with this piece and accurately addressed. This is an expensive product, its cost is not placed in the collectability of the product but in the quantity of pieces and cost of specific pieces. Bare in mind, this product has 23 minifigures, massively outweighing many of the other models and can be extremely costly individually. Additionally, there are over 4000 pieces with an average estimation of 10p per piece of Lego to be considered. This to be weighed additionally against the hours of enjoyment building this model.

In Summary

Our stance is very clear where Lego is concerned, we want you to have an experience. There will always be a collectable market for these models but this value should be considerably outweighed by the ignition of a childhood memory or the imagination that these builds can provide. 4000 pieces of magic, 23 characters to display, weapons, good vs evil and hours of building intricate, difficult, functioning scenes - it really does not get more exciting.

Keep on Building

Much Love
