What do other customers think?
The Lego Star Wars Death Star has already been released into the market and there has already been lots of positive feedback from happy customers such as this:
" Putting this Lego set together was a massive project that I completed with my 8 year old son. We thoroughly enjoyed spending quality time creating the Death Star masterpiece by putting together thousands of pieces. The completed set is full of wonderful detail and the opportunities for play in it are just endless. The huge number of mini figures that come with it add to the play experience. We were both thrilled with the end result - moving lasers, doors that open, lifts that go up and down and walls that close in. The set is expensive but, in my opinion, totally worth the cost. I would highly recommend this play set to all fans of Star Wars" David
