Isn't that a good thing?
As for the set, it looks like a decent parts pack...

The disappointing thing about it is in Oz BigW are selling it for 49 bucks....yes, that's about double the US price !
Anyway, may the brick be with you !

I am looking forward to getting this set, those ewok minifigs are brilliant! The detail in the logray fig is amazing!
Not sure if it justifies the same UK price point as the Battle of Naboo set so I will be looking to get it on some kind of 3 for 2 deal.

I'll get this when it comes out, and possibly another one when it goes on sale before it's discontinued.

You say "you cant tell the diffrence between new and old figs" as though it were a bad thing. I don't understand why one wouldn't want one's uniformed troops to look, well, uniform.
- 4 copies apiece of Mickey Mouse, the Genie, Stitch, Mr. Incredible, Syndrome, and the Pizza Planet Alien
- 3 copies apiece of everyone else

Thanks for the review.
This set is really nice, just because of the ewoks. They are one of my favourite characters.
But the price is very high. Especially in Germany :(

Not that I'm immune to it - I'd buy it for the Ewoks, too, if there weren't so many other sets I want in this year's lineup. Might buy it on clearance anyway. Those damn teddy bears ruined ROTJ, but they make great minifigs!

Yes, I think that's been the trend with Star Wars sets recently.

I completely agrea. To bad Lego didn't make the tree modular in some way. That way, if you buy multiple sets you can make a bigger tree. (of course it's Lego and you always can) but they should exploit it, to get more money.

I've added a poll for people to rate the set in.

I, like everyone else it seems, am not entirely sure about this as set in itself. The tree is cool, the bike is... hmm and the minifigures, while actually really nice, are kind of boring. Nothing stands out.
However, I actually think this is a brilliant parts pack set. When you look at it from the view of a MOCer, the tree is a treasure trove. Dark brown, dark green, dark tan, brown, green, more leaves, etc etc. The bike leaves something to be desired but is, again, a really nice selection of intricate brown and black pieces. The minifigures then, when looked at in this way, are just nice addition, a couple of characters thrown in.
While I agree the set could've been better, I think the designer has done a good job turning what could potentially been a very boring flop of a model into a hive of useful parts in (fairly) rare colours. I also must say that really like the new mish-mash trees we're getting now too, it's a neat area the new sets are exploring.
I'll wait for a while and mull this one over.

edit: looked it up and well apparently sold out at S@H for the americans, so we can be sure the set isn't going to drag on for much longer, but still very available elsewhere
Beyond that I'm still not persuaded by this set, The minifigures are great but I know for a fact that the tree-stump wouldn't stay assembled very long, guess I'll wait for a discount on this one (at least 2 years availability to go, must happen someday).
Oh and thanks for the review, well done. Looking forward to other reviews of the new sets.
