I really enjoyed building my first set piece (as opposed to vehicles), and I love the minifigures! This set is worth getting just to have Maz Kanata, in my opinion. The pieces are divided into three bags, which take about 20–25 minutes each to assemble. The instructions were, on the most part, very clear. The stickers did not come in bag 1 this time, but had been placed inside the instruction manual instead. They didn't appear until well after I was meant to have attached them, so I assumed they were missing. The minifigures that come with this set are excellent. Maz Kanata is very detailed and film accurate. I think the set is a bit more expensive because making her mould must have been tricky. The set also comes with Finn, Kylo Ren and two Stormtroopers, including FN-2199 (aka TR-8R, aka Nines). This set has quite a few playability features: a falling tree, collapsing walls, a hidden treasure box (where you can place Luke's lightsaber, which comes with this set – just the handle, mind!), sliding front doors and an exploding front porch. These were really fun to build, and all work well. The falling tree and sliding doors are my favourites. This set had two cloth items, which came in a tiny cardboard box: the banner for Maz' castle, and Kylo Ren's cape. These work really well against the plastic Lego, and I much prefer these to stickers (if we're comparing items that aren't pure Lego). Pros: - Great minifigures - Good playability features - Really fun to build - Looks great as a set Cons: - Stickers were hidden inside the instruction manual, towards the end All in all I would definitely recommend this set to any Lego Star Wars fan!Play Experiencerating.prefix5rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix3rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix4rating.postfixBuild Time: 1 hrs 10 minsBuilding Experience: Intermediate LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
- over 1 year agorating.prefix4rating.postfixFinn meets up with old squad mates for drinks!FN1975 | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThe battle of Takodana was the first non vehicle based build I have done, and I really enjoyed it. While the MSPR was a bit high for what you get, you can generally find this set on sale. It comes with 5 mini figures (Finn, Maas, Kylo and a couple of stormtroopers, including TR-8R!) and these figures are really well sculpted. The set itself has quite a few play features, including a falling tree, a collapsible wall and a hidden lightsaber that call out with the the force and shows you the best parts of all the movies when you touch it! I really enjoyed posing the figures to remake scenes from the movie, although I have to say I was disappointed when the set named the Battle of Takodana did not contain a single taco! I like to refer to this set as "Finn runs into his old squadmates; hillarity ensues! All and all, a fun set, but a bit on the pricey side. I'd recommend it for the play and collectors value.Play Experiencerating.prefix4rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix3rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix3rating.postfixBuild Time: 2 hrsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45
- over 1 year agorating.prefix4rating.postfixLego Star Wars: Battle on TakodanaDarthRevan1 | 14-18I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfThe initial wave of the Force Awakens Lego set rendered an expensive price point for many memorable and superb sets. These sets included some of the best Star Wars minifigures to come out of Lego in the past 18 years. The most desired minifig to come out of the new Star Wars line is Kylo Ren. The second wave from Jan 1st, 2016 released the Battle on Takodana which contained Kylo Ren, legendary trooper FN - 2199, Finn and Maz Kanata. Set: The build is only 409 parts and for a $74.99 CAD set the price is very steep compared to the parts. The final model looks good as a display piece with very appealing tan, nougat and reddish brown colour scheme. The model has two adjoining segments: the entrance to the castle and the side panel which contains the tree. The entire model is minimized to fit a realistic price point so not all details could be inserted and I appreciate the designers effort. The entrance has a nice banner piece which goes well with the colour scheme but another banner would have been better. The entrance has a sliding door function with a small sticker off to a side for some added play. There is also a small play feature using black studs to launch them and create a flying rubble type of effect. The effort is good but the execution is poor since the pieces tend to fall out from the model. At the back of the model there is not much to look which is due to the piece count. The adjoining wall segment is also nicely done with a falling tree and bricks feature. The back of the segment has a small crate containing the Luke's lightsaber which is a very nice touch and is reminiscent of the movie. Minifigures: 1. Kylo Ren: The Kylo Ren version in this set comes with an exclusive face print revealing his face which is fantastic piece to get. You also get his hair piece which transforms him into a different minifigure. Other than that he is the same version that appeared in the Command Shuttle albeit cheaper. 2. Finn: Finn is unchanged from the Millennium Falcon and is still a pretty cool fig to get and like Kylo appears in a cheaper set. 3. Maz Kanata: the second exclusive fig in the set and a fantastic one nonetheless. The head mold is exceptionally well done with crisp lines and tons of paint applications. Usually with head molds, the pain tends to bleed through but Maz is not the case as her head prints are perfect. One of my favourite minifigures out of the Force Awakens. 4. Stormtrooper: nice fig to get and nice to create an army. Like that he comes with a blaster rather than the stud shooter 5. FN-2199: Same as the stormtrooper but with the Z6 Riot Control Baton which is a nice accessory Overall Summary: Pros: Kylo Ren and Finn in a cheaper set Maz is a fantastic minifig and the head mold is exceptionally well done The castle has an aesthetically pleasing look with many uncommon brick colours Luke’s lightsaber is a nice inclusion as a feature Cons: FN-2199 is nothing special: the accessory could be remade. The new battle pack includes two of the FN-2199 figures and comes with the shield as well. Very high price point, should have been between $50 - $60. Maybe without one of the stormtroopers Stud launching feature is okay and you can easily remove it. However it does waste useful parts. Battle on Takodana is a set I only purchased on a 40% discount which I felt was justified. This set should only be purchased on sales which it goes on regularly.maPlay Experiencerating.prefix3rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix2rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix2rating.postfixBuild Time: 55 minsBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45
- 2 months agorating.prefix4rating.postfixAmazing SetRotenTumato | 14-18I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfFirst of all, this set is just awesome. There's a ton of excellent stuff in this set, but I cannot overlook the fact that it is definitely overpriced. This is the only reason I gave it four stars instead of a full five. But anyway, on with the review. Minifigures: Kylo Ren-excellent figure, great face and hair, amazing helmet Finn-pretty good figure, good for what it is, incredible hair piece Maz-awesome figure, beautiful head mold, detailed printing First Order Stormtrooper-incredible figure, very desirable, very good helmet FN-2199 (a.k.a. TR-8R)-great figure, good baton, not much else to say Pros: -Minifigure selection -Design & look -It's a playset Cons: -Price -Back side of set is a little unfinished It looks like that's it for this review. I hope this helps you make a descission about whether or not to buy this set! I would strongly recommend this! PS: This set only includes two First Order stormtroopers. However, in my attached picture, there are four showcased. If you want to obtain more First Order Stormtroooers, consider the First Order Battle Pack or the First Order Troop Transporter.Play Experiencerating.prefix5rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix3rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix3rating.postfixBuild Time: 55 minsBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45
