- October 4th, 2021Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Great To BuildI would recommend this to a friend!I have built this set, and I must say I am genuinely surprised. I had some doubts at first regarding the display value, but it looks great on the shelf. It's a pleasure to build and the minifigures are pretty good. I would have LOVED a TIE fighter pilot, but unfortunately it didn't come. Another small problem is the Mustafar element, there is not enough lava and environment factors (eg. Mustafarians, lava 'crickets" or just lava). The play value is good, even though there is not that much space in the castle to move your hands. My favourite part about this set is the fact that the castle has so many rooms. (Sith holochron included ;0) Overall good set.Play Experience5.0Value for Money3.0Was this helpful?45Darth Vader's Castle
- May 8th, 2019Average rating4out of 5 stars4.0Great look :) Bad playability :(PatrickA |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfDisplay value: 5/5 Playability value : 2.5/5 This set is tremendous to display. What an impressive look. And what a great addition to any display room. The problem with this set is its playability. I would really have prefered a microfig scale, like Hogwarts castle. There are only 4 very little rooms to play (if we count the gunner roof station on top). The back of the castle (open to see let people see the different rooms) is not very beautiful to look at. I would have like a 300 more bricks, to enhance the castle playability area. I would have like a reunion room, or a training room. The front is great, but the back is mehhh......Play Experience2.0Value for Money5.0Build Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45Darth Vader's Castle
- February 13th, 2021Average rating3out of 5 stars3.0Okay cause it’s Vader’sTK1969 |I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfCool to have because this place has nearly become iconic since its introduction in Rouge One. However, I’m sorry to say I find it overpriced and disappointing. The figs are basic with the exception of Bacta Anakin. I really didn’t want or need any more Imperial Guards. Not to mention an odd 501st trooper that somehow doesn’t seem to blend well with my other members of Vader’s legion. And, why is he there during this period? It seems this should have been bigger with more detail, better figs, and larger rooms. Also, there should be a floor to the base. It looks incomplete without one. Once you build this, you just can’t do much with it other than pose a few figs.Play Experience3.0Value for Money3.0Build Time: 4 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?35Darth Vader's Castle
