What's up with that one sticker on the curving section above the left wing (it can be seen in the photo on the white background)? I looks like there should be a second sticker on the other curve piece, and I don't see the sticker at all on the box art...

As promised, here are the high-res (original 1000x1000) pictures. Clicking on these will bring you to the large version in high-res (1000x1000).

The shape is VERY accurate. At first i thought the "satellite dish" (the bottom/base of the ship) should be more round, but its actually very accurate. The angles and curves are masterfully designed, with a low number of studs visible. Very good!
The big disappointment for me are the minifigs :-(
There was not much improvement they could do with Boba - except for the obvious arm printing. But i was maybe hoping for a new backpack, or a new mold for the hands with his wrist-guns (unrealistic i know). And I really don't think his new gun is closer to the movie version.
Carbonite Han is basucally the same as the Jabbas Palace version, and the Stormie is the same we got in the 2014 Star destroyer.
The bespin guard is cool, though.
What I really was hoping for was 4-lom, Zuckuss, Dengar or Ig-88... But none of those were present at Bespin in the movies, so its kinda logical. On the bright side this set sets the stage for more Bespin-related sets. As we all know TLG usually releases relating OT-sets in "waves" - like the recent Tatooine wave we have had. I have my fingers crossed for a new carbon freeze chamber play-set, or perhaps a system scale twin pod car :-P
What we don't see in the pictures are the play features (except for the hidden weapons in the sides). I'm guessing (and hoping) the sides of the ship open up to reveal a detailed interior - hopefully with holding cells for Bobas unfortunate prisoners ;-D

That is probably the best executed Lego set for Star Wars I've seen. I know that may sound extreme, but I have nothing negative to say about how it looks. It's very smooth and sleek, yet still bulky and imposing. I'm definitely sold in the ship.
Meanwhile that Boba Fett looks perfect. He was already pretty good and very much near perfect, but this covers any remaining element of Boba I could want. The other figures though are the weakest part of the set. I was really hoping for additional bounty hunters, as they have been lacking recently. None of the other figures are ones I really need or have been looking to fill in my collection.
All things considered, I'm easily sold if the price is below $250.

Minifig lineup is fitting too (another new minifig or a second Bespin guard would have been awesome of course), but to be realistic this is probably as good as it gets for an official set. Hopefully it will be out in October in time for the double VIP points.

"No, Fire Lord Ozai; you're not wearing pants!" -Avatar Aang.

"You're tearing me apart, Lisa!"

There's a possibility this is the set that will be revealed on Facebook early October (based on the LEGO Store calendar). If so, it may appear is in November as an early access set but with a December launch.
