A bit of background: My son is absolutely obsessed with both Lego and Star Wars. He was recently taken ill and to let him know how proud we were of him for being so brave we treated him to this amazing Lego set. It's a huge build but very rewarding. He was really chuffed with it. You get some amazing characters from the original trilogy including Jabba the Hut, Max Rebo, Leia and R2-D2 complete with drinks tray! I think out of all the Lego he has (which is a lot) this might be his all time favourite set. He's since dismantled the barge but with all the parts he has ours of fun creating his own Star Wars creations. At the end of the day, that's what Lego is all about isn't it!
Purchased as a Christmas present; my 6 year old son loves this set. He needed a bit of help with the sails, but other than this he found the build challenging but not impossible. He has greatly enjoyed playing with the set since building it, especially the Jabba and Princess Laya characters.
