'...One Quarter Portion'This set is in a very similar style to Battle on Takodana. It's a small set with great minifigures but it doesn't quite come together as well as it could have.
The overall idea is fantastic. Star Wars locations are rare as Lego sets and a lot of story takes place on Jakku. The luggabeast is movie accurate with great articulation but the bright azure colour just doesn't work. Either Lego should have used a darker blue or used less of it. It would be easy to improve it using your own bricks but why it was designed like this I don't know.
As for Unkar's stand it just feels so disjointed. The dilapidated, worn and old feeling come across well and the colour palette is true to Jakku, but it's just too small. To really do it justice the build needed to be bigger. The details are nice and include parts for a battle droid, a hidden blaster and rations.
The minifigures are what really makes this set. Rey has detailed printing and comes with her staff. BB-8 is also included but if you want Unkar's thugs then you need to buy another set and a book. Unkar himself is a great, ugly minifigure with a unique headpiece. The Teedo also comes with a unique headpiece and it's staff but in reality it's legs should have been smaller.
This is a nice little set but it's not the best representation of Jakku. However I think this set is worth it just for the minifigures and is a good addition to any Star Wars collection.

It's so small...When I saw this set announced, I thought that the mini figures looked amazing. After building them and having them in my hands, Teedo surprised me by being my favorite. The detail on his head mold is just amazing. Rey and bb8 are great additions to the set. Unkar Plutt is very authentic to the movie. That being said, the set itself was somewhat of a disappointment.
$60 for 530 pieces is better than a lot of the other sets in the Lego Star Wars line. The price is fine, considering that there are 3 full sized figures, 2 of which have exclusive molds and prints. The problem is that the majority of the pieces are only stud sized or slightly bigger. The final build ends up being a really small toy. The lugga beast is a great size, slightly off color but it's a fun build and fun to play with. But Unkar's hut just doesn't feel like it's enough. It's too small and only really has 2 features, the folding part and the hidden gun.
On paper this set sounds like a really good Star Wars set, but it is just so lack luster in size. Again, the minifigures are really great (although Finn would've been a good addition) and are great to re-enact some of the scenes from the movie. The lugga beast is a fun build and there are a decent amount of things you can do with it play/display wise. I really want to love this set, but Unkar's hut is where this set truly falls apart. It is simply too small which is due in part to the lugga beast using up so many small pieces. I would recommend getting this set when it goes on sale.

please hear this, legothe reason I got this set was for unkar teedo and the luggebeast. They were OK but the real disappointment was unkar's stand. it can barely hold one character. I don't want to keep purchasing big sets like this just for a few alien minifigures. I think lego should make star wars alien battle packs or something cheap that contains some alien background characters. I hope you please consider this

Great build and incredible display pieceI knew this was a day one purchase from when LEGO first released the set images. The luggabeast appeared perfectly represented and niima outpost so cleverly detailed for what is a medium-sized set.
The build is split in between the two main components: the luggabeast first followed by niima outpost. Although the l-beast uses moulded legs, there is a surprising number of clever building techniques, using brackets and plates blended seemlessly with bricks. The result is a fantastic representation to the movie, and will leave most builders of any level with a few new tricks up their sleeve. These techniques are most transferable to themes such as space, vehicles and sculptures.
Niima outpost is again littered with techniques throughout, and demonstrates how a location or building can be well-represented with relatively few bricks. The sail is a great touch, and really makes the outpost a perfect model for display.
Both the l-beast and the outpost are full of playalibity. The l-beasts legs a movable and the outpost can be displayed in several ways with a few clever functions built into the design.
Encounter on jakku is a truly enjoyable set; the build had me smiling throughout, and it will be some time before I can bring myself to disassemble either the beast or the outpost. This set shows once again what can be achieved, both aesthetically and functionally, with thoughtful building and clever techniques. For me, this is where LEGO surpasses all other building systems.
If you enjoy Star Wars, Lego, Star Wars Lego, and good times, then I highly recommend encounter on jakku.
