FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 10

This one is my favorite right now.

It looks just so impressive, even though the scale might not be perfect it is a real attention getter.

When I first saw it (online!!! so just on pictures and videos) I just had to get one.

After I have build it and have it standing infront of me I just have to say that it looks even better in real.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 7

For unique parts please see other reviews.

As for minifigures there are none :-(

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 9

The build experience is great. It probably took me >3-4 hours to finish it.

There are some pretty interesting techniques and you need some patience every once in a while.

I would have appreciated if LEGO would have added an interior.

 

This is one of the UCS (Ultimate Colletors Sets) so it is mostly fit for being displayed, though you can move the legs somehow and turn the head and the canons.

Though it might make a shacky impression I must say that it is somehow robust (at least as long as an adult handles it).

 

 

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 10

79.99$ on retail! This is one of the best UCS ever! Compared to others it looks just soooo gorgeous!

I think it was one of the cheapest and best UCS ever made! There really is nothing you can complain about concerning the retail price.

 

As it is EOL (end of line) for some time now you will have to spend more, but even if you have to spend twice the retail price or more I would say it's worth the money!

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 10

LEGO Star Wars! One of the most popular themes right now!

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 10

UCS and EOL so pretty much exclusive right now.

PACKAGING | Score: 8

The box is nice enough. There is Endor on the background and that's about it.

I think I would have prefered the bunker in the background but still...

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 6

It's difficult to say.

If there won't be any remakes there should be potential for still more growth.

I would say it will grow some more, but I would not bet on it as there are safer investments.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 10

It's just WOW! Seeing it life infront of you is just amazing! Alone or together with other sets.

It is big and detailed and might be one of the best Star Wars UCS to display. Right now it's my favorite of them all.

Talking of scale it might be a little bit too big but still I think that it might look nice if you add it to other Endor Sets. (The Bunker 8038, The Ewok Village 10236...).

 

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 10

To me this is one of the best Star Wars Sets of all time.

I guess there is still some growth potential though there are safer more profitable options.

If you want to own the Set then you will not be disappointed!

It would have been a nice touch to add an interior to the AT-ST but if you really want one you can see it as challenge and build one yourself ;-)

This set is great and being part of the original triology always will be.
