FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 10

This is one of the biggest sets I have ever seen. The set really wowed me when I first saw it in my local Lego store. I think that this set is already an iconic set. The set has five minifigures and three thousand one hundred fifty-two pieces. Here is what Lego.com said about this set:

Dare to pilot Darth Vader’s™ deadly destroyer!
The Super Star Destroyer Executor has arrived! This jaw-dropping vessel is the personal flagship of Darth Vader, and serves as command ship at both the Battle of Hoth and the Battle of Endor. With its classic dagger-shaped design, the Executor is among the largest and most powerful vessels in the Star Wars galaxy. With over 3,000 pieces, measuring nearly 50"" (124.5 cm) long and weighing nearly 8 pounds (3.5 kg), every aspect of this fantastic LEGO® Star Wars™ model impresses. Includes 5 minifigures: Darth Vader, Admiral Piett, Dengar, Bossk and IG-88.

  • Includes 5 minifigures: Darth Vader, Admiral Piett, Dengar, Bossk and IG-88
  • Features over 3,000 pieces!
  • Measures nearly 50 inches (124.5 cm) long and weighs nearly 8 pounds (3.5kg)!
  • Includes display stand and data sheet label!
  • Center section lifts off to reveal command center!

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 10

The set has five minifigures. Those minifigures are Darth Vader, Bossk, Dengar, IG-88, and Admiral Piett.. It is very rare to find minifigures in UCS series sets and especially this many. Only a few UCS sets have this many minifigures. The 10179 Millennium Falcon is one of them. For rare piece and colors, there does not seem to be any in this set.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 10

Playability Experience

The set is not meant to be played with. It is a massive set that would wiegh a lot, which may make it hard to pick up and play with. The only playability I can think of for this set is the mini Imperial star Destroyer. You could also

Build Experience

The Super Star Destroyer has about thirty-one hundred pieces in the set. That would take me about seven to eight hours to build the set completely. A huge set like this is always fun to build.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 6

The Super Star Destroyer has a retail price of $399.99 USD. Since there is three thousand one hundred fifty-two pieces in the set, the PPP ratio is thirteen cents ($0.13 USD) per piece. I would consider that a little to high for me. I like PPP ratios that are at or below ten cents per piece. This set does not fit in that category.  The set would be better if the set was on sale. Let's compare this set  to other sets from the UCS.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 10

The Super Star Destroyer set comes from the Star Wars theme. The set is under the Ultimate Collectors Series sub theme. These sets are the best sets, in my opinion, ever made by Lego. There are also some of the largest sets ever created. The Star wars theme is a very popular theme. Many of the set sell well in the primary market and there are often people scouring eBay to find a set at a better price or they are looking to get a set because it EOL before they could get it. Either way, Star wars sets sell very in both the primary market and the secondary market. Because of all the people who want these sets, the values for these sets will go up.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 7

The Super Star Destroyer set is very exclusive. Because the set is a UCS, only a limited amount of stores sold these other than the Lego stores or online. The set was no in limited production. The set is not from any Lego trade shows that I know of. The set is sold in the primary market , so you can  get this set in the primary and secondary market.
