13 posts in this topic

Here´s the second in a series of short reviews from the scenes at the Star Wars Miniland in Legoland Billund. The setup is supposed to be the same in all Legland´s around the world, so for more background information read this post and this post!

SW EpVI Return Of The Jedi – Endor

The Endor system plays a key role in the Return of the Jedi as the site of the Battle of Endor, fought to prevent construction of the second Death Star. The scene presents the final victory of the Rebel Alliance over the Empire. Endor is a forest moon and home of the Ewoks, who fight against the Imperial forces alongside the Rebels. You can also view a large-scale model of a Lambda-class Imperial shuttle on its landing platform.

Look closely – how many Ewoks can you find?

First an overall video:

The big radar dish for the shield generator:

Thanks again for sharing this CopMike, your Miniland reviews really gives us the chance to see these models and set-ups on a more closer view. The landing platform, radar dish, and Lambda shuttle are very well done IMO. However I don't like the Battle of Endor set-up, there are something about the bunker, scout troopers in 74-Zs, and the 'flying ewok' that I find a bit off.

Wow a review of SW miniland! I never thought there would a review of miniland! :laugh: Some of the detail is incredable! The detail of the satellite dish and the Imperial Shuttle are awesome!

Great models, that shield generator must have taken ages to make.

Thanks again, CopMike! Other than the Ewok village, which is way too low to the ground, I think all the models here look pretty good. Probably my favorite of all the scenes, as there are none of the really ugly vehicles in it.

A big thank you for both of the reviews!

I really enjoy reading about the new SW Miniland before visiting Günzburg later this year with my two sons, one of them being a big enthusiast of Lego Star Wars.

Vader is impressive, most impressive :laugh:

The whole Endor setup is nice. It's amazing how much details are in it. On the other hand I don't like Han's blaster :thumbdown:
