Thanks Muttly777.

The window peice will be great to use in SW mocs. As for the Death Star, surly they could have at least printed the dam thing. The other planets have full printing. I would have like to see it printed even if they left out the texture. A print would have looked accurite and made it more detailed. With out any printing it looks quite plane and unfinished.

I must say Lego has done a good job with these sets.  I think they hit the mark.  :thumbup:

I don't feel the Death Star molds need printing; the contours are enough to make a quite striking resemblance.

also, i feel that these sets are not made for the outer shell and that everyone is wanting the candy surprise :classic:  inside..

I love the mini tie-fighter. Would get a few of these sets for the minifigures and the minis. They look great if you moc them to be faraway spaceships at the back and a few normal tie0fighters at the front to get a 3D feel.
