    Finally a decent model from Lego this year and substantially cheaper than previous sets. I wonder if the criticism for those other bigger sets has caused the price reduction?

    I can understand that there’s a lot of repetitive components, but you definitely seem to be getting a lot more than in those licensed sets.

    Wow what a beauty! Also £170 for 4K pieces!? This really makes Assault on Hoth look like a joke (even more than it already was).
