    Even adding THIS to the revamped Death Star set wouldn’t have justified the $100 jump in price. 🙂

  • Max LaChance

    This looks so good. I can’t wait for the instructions to leak so I can replicate it.

    • Samuel Fisher

      Agreed, I live in the area won’t be able to attend but, I am really looking forward to the instructions being released so I can replicate it and who knows, maybe expand it??

    Also, for $40, would it have killed them to throw in a Princess Leia, or for that matter a Chewie?

  • Reaven Veaceslav

    Soooo it’s a very tiny rendition of a famous movie scene, that’s missing half the main characters involved and all the minor characters, uses minifigures that already exist, and most of the point of the scene is lost? The actual scene in question appears to be a much darker grey than this, and the cameras don’t appear to be white. The only thing I see here of any interest is the box itself.

    And there’s a raffle just to be able to give them more money and purchase it at an inflated price?

    This would be a cute moc up, but as an official prize that they’re still demanding money for, this feels severely lacking.

  • Armageddon Bosswald ⚡️ Quilt

    This feels very much like it’s missing Leia

    • Jonathan

      Or Chewbacca

  • Anyone know if the box dimensions of this set is the same as the SDCC exclusive sets of 2014-2015 (i.e. 66 Batmobile, Action Comics #1, etc.)?
