FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 4

The box art looks cool. I must say the overall setup on the box makes the set look good and doesn't look messy. However, I don't like the use of the UCS badge on the box, which this set doesn't deserve in my opinion.

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 7

A lot of minifigures, but many of them are generic Hoth Rebels. Toryn Farr is exclusive but doesn't look great, Han is nice but uses the old Han hairpiece, Luke is a good minifigure, but Leia is a glaring omission.

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 8

Pretty good fun to play with. However, building it didn't feel like I was building a UCS set. Also, there are very very few Imperials in the set, which hurts playability.

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 4

Pretty weak value. You do get quite a bit of bricks but the set quality for that price is bad.

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 10

Star Wars is immensely popular.

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 6

It's a UCS, so it's more limited than regular retail sets.

PACKAGING | Score: 4

Decent packaging. Its box size makes it stand out on the shelf. Don't like the UCS plaque on the box.

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 3

Given the negative reaction from the AFOL community, I doubt there will be much growth.

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 1

Horrible, messy. Doesn't come together as one complete whole. This is more a big playset for kids than a UCS.

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 1

Very weak set. I don't like it, and you shouldn't buy it.
