He’s headed for that small moon!It does at times feel like a small moon! You really don’t get the scale of how big this one is until you’re about half way through, it widens and widens as you go.
Such a lovely build, instructions are like you’re building a car, perfectly broken down and illustrated with some nice touches in there. Although doesn’t mean it’s an easy one, I’ve made a few mistakes along the way, and it takes a fair bit to resolve, trust me!
But, to Lego’s credit, all the bits are there, well organised and numbered, it was a genuine pleasure and delight to build. Spent 2 days with nothing but music and this for company...flew by!
Price wise, yes, it’s expensive...but then again, it’s a frigging Death Star! The gold standard of Star Wars Lego! And when you consider all the bits and all the time and effort that went into designing it...totally worth it. If you’re going to get hung up on the price, I would say get something a little cheaper, but if you can look past it and enjoy it for what it is, you won’t be disappointed. One slight thing I’m not a fan of, however, is it being one of the Ulimate Collector pieces...it’s not, I wouldn’t display it. It’s got plenty of play value if you like to play with your sets...but I think I’ll deconstruct in the next few days. Spend the time boxing it up nicely for a bank holiday weekend to enjoy again! Go on...treat yourself!

Great Play at a Steep PriceThis set is a minor upgrade of the previous Death Star, with one of the biggest updates being in the form of updated minifigures. The set itself has incredible play value!
Display value is okay, but since the original set's release many years ago, lots of new parts and building techniques have been implemented, and things like the stair-stepping could have been minimized. Being able to remove modules would have helped with play a bit, too.
The major issue with this set is the price point. With fewer parts than the recently released Disney Castle, this set costs $200 CAD more. I'm aware that themes, other sets, and piece counts are not directly comparable, but this price point is still significantly higher than it seems like it should be.
Over the previous iteration of this set, factoring inflation and the new updates, this price point still doesn't seem to stick.
This set comes with a lot of minifigures, most of which are not exclusive to this set (or won't remain so). The parts aren't all that unique... lots of common grey and black. Nothing wrong with that, but again takes away from the justification of the price-point.
It's a wonderful set. It's just seems overpriced.
Side note: personally, I'd prefer if the UCS label was used for models that have more display value than visible play value. It seems like there's been a shift to brand all of the higher priced sets as UCS this year, and I wish there could be a shift back. Just one ultimate collector's opinion!
If you have the money, by all means, buy this set!

One of the best Lego buildsI recently purchased this set on Amazon, with Prime I got the set for 20% off and it is so worth it. The build took me 18 hours over a span of 2 days, the first day took me 13 hours and the next day took the remaining 5. The set has so many playable areas, traps, and hidden secrets. The set comes with 23 minifigures, which are all so much more detailed than the 2008 version of this set. It's a very good upgrade. Many people talk about the price, and how its too expensive, but the set you get is very worth it. I replaced the lightsaber hilts on the minifigures with the old chrome versions, which are much better than the current metallic grey. I also tried to replicate each scene from the cover art, and the back cover art of the Lego box. I had to add about 3 Darth Vaders onto the set, to recreate the Obi-Wan fight, the Throne Room fight, and the round table. Highly recommend this set for any Lego fans, just know that the build is a long time, which was one of my favourite things about the set.
