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!

Great setEver since I was young, I have always wanted the Lego death star, but the old one was so outdated that I never saved enough to get it. Once this one came out, I knew I had to get it. It doesn't deserve All the hate, just because it is $100 more. It has so many minifigs and big plates that are worth more than 10 cents per piece. I just wish it could have had a little more updates such as remodeling some of the interior. They could have put some grey pieces to put on the emperor's stairs, like the Death Star final duel set had. Also the trash compactor leaks pieces a lot. That's why I fixed those things!

very little improvement over retired 10188 setthis set has barely any improvement over the retired set. it appears LEGO just redesigned a box and slapped a $100 premium on an old set. i am very disappointed at the lack of creativity here. i hope this is not a new face of lego/disney coop. as a collector i will not be keeping this one, its an abomination. had different scenes been incorporated in the similar doll house design it would have been a must have. as it currently stands this set is a waste of money for those that already have 10188.

Disappointing rehashThis is a rehash of the previous Death Star.
Lego tweaked a few details, added 2 minifigs and issued this as a "new" model.
Very disappointing, especially considering a $100 (20%) increase in price.
