You could buy all sorts of junk for your kids for christmas that they will never play with, or, the deathstar. It will keep them entertained for weeks. Perhaps months or more. So far have had it for about a month and it is played with daily.
This set truly is MASSIVE. At a whopping 3,803 pieces, this is no kid's toy. It really is a "big kid's" toy, a collector's item, for the hardcore LEGO/Star Wars fan. So many features, and so many classic scenes depicted throughout the set. This really is one of LEGO's finest! A bit on the pricey side--though what isn't with LEGO.but well worth it if you can afford it. Shipping box completely packaged by LEGO, and distributed by Target. Everything appears in perfect shape from shipment so far. Awesome set!
This is a perfect set for a more advanced Lego builder. The details are amazing and the way things move is wonderful. The pop top raises and lowers and the top of the camper can be removed to explore the well equipped interior complete with sink and curtains.
This would be a perfect gift for a Lego lover or a VW fan or even a former hippie. This set was formerly sold only through Lego directly and is rarely seen on store shelves. This set is worth the price.
