A masterpiecethis set was masterfully designed and executed. Building hundreds of Lego sets of a span of almost 30 years I can easily say that this set is the most rewarding set I've ever built. There is nothing I would change about this set. It's not a beginners set though. So if you have not mastered some easier building techniques then if maybe hard to follow the instructions. The build was amazing. Nothing was repetitive and it kept you on your toes. The detailing on the outside is perfect. Make sure you already have a place designated for this set before you start building. I definetly recommend getting this set if you are a true lego Star Wars die hard fan. The only thing I'd like to have seen is more minifigures. Some had mentioned an exclusive new trilogy Luke skywalker (wouldn't fit story-wise but still would be cool) and I think a OT Luke and obi wan and a Lando would have been a welcome addition. but the one minifigure I wish we could have gotten was an exclusive Nien Nunb. Oh my gosh that would have been the icing on the cake.

Not impressedIt looks great, but honestly I'm a little disappointed in it. Except for two rooms, it's pretty empty inside and it isn't really easy to access those rooms. When you open entry ramp you can't help but feel like it's unfinished. I was also disappointed that as expensive as it is, it doesn't even have all the characters from episode 4. Let's be honest, nobody cares about the new crew, I'd rather they had included Luke, Obi Wan and R2-D2.

4.00 out of 5 stars reviewVerified Purchaser07/27/2022CmonAfter years of watching videos and tik toks of other people building this monster I finally got myself to finally buy one and for the most part it's been well worth the money. From opening the main box to reading through the instruction booklet to complete if the first set of bags it's been amazing. I only wish that their weren't so many pieces missing from separate bags. I'm just a little disappointed that I've had to order and wait for replacement parts on 3 separate occasions because some of the bags have been missing a piece. For the price, it's unfortunate that this has been happening and put a pause on my build experience 3 separate times now. Other than that I love the UCS Falcon Set. It's HUGE!!! My ratings are 4 across the board but if it weren't for the pieces missing in different bags it would definitely be a 5 across the board for me.TO29

5.00 out of 5 stars reviewVerified Purchaser03/27/2022Great KitWhen I saw this at the store, I knew I had to find a proper place to display it. When I got home I measured my glass coffee table and it was prefect! I enjoyed building this kit and the final product is awesome! I would highly recommend it to any Star Wars fan.PoshUmbrella048
4.00 out of 5 stars reviewVerified Purchaser02/17/2022Amazing Display Piece, Grueling BuildThis set makes for an absolutely stellar display piece that will definitely become the centerpiece of your lego collection, but be warned — if you love how colorful legos are, this set and how large it is will suck a lot of the color out of your collection. The detail and size are unparalleled, and I think this set is worth the money. If you can afford it and are a huge fan of LEGO, I think this set is one you need to own. When it comes to the build, I was not the biggest fan (the 1989 Batmobile is still my favorite one). It is primarily building large subsections and attaching them (in a rather difficult and sometimes fragile manner) to a single core. I prefer to build one large structure. It took me 12 hours to complete, and the first half can feel like a slog since you're primarily building the underside. The 2nd half is much more rewarding when you're building the top half, as you can really start to see the set come together. 8.5/10!
5.00 out of 5 stars reviewVerified Purchaser01/30/2022The Michael Jordan of Lego sets...It took me about 3 years to get this set in my hands. However, it was truly worth the wait. This set is an absolute MVP. The build experience was great, this set has a variety of different builds that avoid any type of repetitiveness and embrace you into a fun and certainly challenging build. The interior builds such as the Dejarik table and the hyperspace cabin add a nostalgia feeling to this set, many of the greatest Star Wars memories I have came back to me when I was building these sections, I'm sure it will also happen to you. The minifigs are great and visually when you finish it, this set just looks GOATED. I definitively recommend getting a display case for the set. The only complaint I have regarding the set is that I can almost assure there was 1 missing piece from the bags. Even though I was able to replace it with a similar stud. Asides from that, this is The ultimate Lego for all Star Wars fans. Really glad I was able to get it and then build it. CheersChrisD2
5.00 out of 5 stars reviewVerified Purchaser01/29/2022A beast of a buildI got this when it first came out and it was such a challenging and fun build. For the most part, the parts stay where you put them, but there isn't much for play-ability for it. The inside sections are so much smaller than the smaller falcon. Still would have bought it. It is gorgeous.RedMaN
5.00 out of 5 stars reviewVerified Purchaser01/16/2022An amazing LegoI bought this Lego for myself and it is a pretty cool and big Lego. Now I would not recommend it to a beginner but if there up for the challenge then I would let them.FleetingChisel046
5.00 out of 5 stars reviewVerified Purchaser12/27/2021All the LEGO sets I have done have led to thisI have done the Roller Coaster, Hogwarts, the shuttle Discovery, the Aston Martin DB5, and the Old Trafford. All of those sets had their own challenges to overcome. And I feel like I had to overcome all of those challenges to be ready for this MF. For example, while the booklet is awesomely illustrated, the instructions do not highlight new pieces. The builder must then be able to reason where a sub-assembly is to be placed. Frequently, I would have to figure out where it made the most - or only - sense to attach it. This sounds negative but if you are worthy of this amazing set, it makes the experience that much better. You will admire your creation more with each stage.rlgordonma
5.00 out of 5 stars reviewVerified Purchaser11/17/2021Mix the pieces together!I mixed all the pieces together to increase the difficulty and the build time. Five months later and I'm almost done. HAHAHA! It reminds me of digging thru the tub looking for one piece when I was a kid. What a blast! I'll be mixing up all the bags for all future builds.Sister Ray 1968
