75296 - Darth Vader Meditation Chamber


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is a 20 dollar convention set slapped onto 20 dollars worth of solid brick base. Very disappointing. 

I'm not a fan of LEGO trying to make every set a "collectible" or trying to justify itself to adults with such low self-esteem that they won't buy LEGOs unless it has adult M+ labeling.

needed less on pedestal/floor and more on the "egg"
it's such an iconic piece yet many wouldn't recognize it without the labeling
I agree. That picture on the front of the box will not be helping to sell any of these.

A gray background would have gone a long ways to create some contrast to help sell it.  The whole thing just looks underwhelming.  The price point / part is ok, but that base is huge. 

Shame they didn't include a stretched-hexagon shaped screen with a huge image of the emperor on it.  I know no one likes stickers, but that would make the setting obvious.

I prefer my Kenner hybrid Meditation  chamber / Super Star Destroyer playset. Even if it does appear that Vader is overcompensating for his limp lightsaber.

What set with Vader in it recently hasn’t sold well after it hit retirement?

I'm not a fan. How can you meditate with all that light streaming in through the gaping holes in your isolation chamber?

Vader only meditates on the dark side.

Oh, cool, there is a screen.  It's the scene when Vader force chokes Admiral Ozzel after being informed by Gen. Veers of Ozzel's blunder in alerting the Rebels.
