Thanks for the pictures & link spacepilot3000.  I’m counting down the days until I can order this, and they’re really long days at the moment!  :laugh:  

Is that a UCS Falcon in your Avatar?  If so, please can you post a larger picture?  I’d really like to see the display that you’ve made for it.

At the risk of dragging this thread further off-topic, that looks incredible so far, spacepilot. :wub:

To stay on topic, I finally saw this set in-person a couple days ago, and it's definitely the kind of set that looks better in person than in pictures. If you know what to look for, though, (and even if you don't but know what an SSD should look like in the middle) that bridge section does stick out a bit much.

Hey everyone. I got mine and built it about a week ago, it took me about 7 and a half hours to build over three nights (should have taken off work and barred the kids out of the room :laugh:  :laugh: ). I just got all the pictures up on my site, so check them out if you want.

Very great set and although I'd have to agree that it's overpriced - I've been waiting for for so long I don't care  :thumbup: :sweet:

I cannot wait to get this set!! When it was first announced I was iffy because it really is just a bunch of LBG plates together, but from all the many pictures I have seen, it looks amazing and very detailed. I missed out on the 10030- ISD due to me being in the dark ages, but I will not miss out on this set!

I just received mine, it looks great next to my other UCS sets.
One question though, how come it does not list China as a country of origin when it includes Bossk's head in plastic baggie, and Darth Vader's cape in box, when they are pieces that come from the Chinese factory?
This is not a quality related question, I was just curious.

Man I was close to getting this today after seeing it built in the Lego store, but passed for the AT-OT for the kids to enjoy.  When they get a bit older and can appreciate it as a display piece, it's on!

Maybe BossK's head wasn't produced in the Chinese facility, there has never been anything other than pure speculation to suggest which pieces are or are not produced in China.

Yeah, I want my hat back!!  :tongue:

Really nice review, sadly I really don't have the money to buy this, even though I prefer the Falcon. (UCS one)
we're all a little mad here
especially me.

I watched Empire last night and this ship appears often.  
In the version of the movie i watched, the ship appeared darker colored, and had a TON of blue in it.  The ISD had lots of white lights too.  Any modders out there adding some blue greebles?  That's the first mod i'm going to do when i get this set.

I think the SSD should possibly be dark bley with bright blue greebles

Does anyone know what color the 'tooth' piece from Dengar's backpack is? Some pictures make it look dark bluish gray, which others some pearl gray color?

Looks like dark bluish gray to me.

It's a beautiful set that I intend to get for display purposes as well as for the minifigures. I believe Lego should have included a lot of translucent blue pieces in this set in order to simulate the lights on the ship. On a set this big and especially this flat introduction of a second color would have broken down a bit its monotonous appearance. That would have definitely made this set worth every one of its price's pennies.

@dcflake: would it kindly be possible for you to measure the width and height of this set whilst on its stand please? I'm trying to find out how high and deep the displaying cabinet would need to be.

I'm definitely buying this set, however I think I will wait to see if it goes on offer first or get it for cheaper from ebay. Does anyone know if Lego historically tends to put offers on in the period after Christmas (January time)?

Nice review. I like the slight commentary, and I completely agree. Boba should be in this set!

I was wondering the same. And the person has posted on several threads the same thing. Increasing the post count I suppose :sceptic:
