5.0 out of 5 stars Best Christmas Ever!, January 3, 2010
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: LEGO Star Wars Death Star (10188) (Toy)
I bought this for my 8 year old for Christmas - and it was the best Christmas ever! My son loves Lego Star Wars and spends hours and hours entertaining himself with the various sets. He had been dreaming about this Lego set ever since it was presented in the catalog - which he studies regularly.

This is the ULTIMATE Lego Star Wars entertainment weapon of mass satisfaction. Building it took 3 days and occupied every flat surface in our living room / dining room. The best part was that the instructions are set up so that the different rooms / levels are completed one at a time. So we'd build for a while, play for a while, continue building etc. The prison block is very cleverly done. Everyone in the family participated so it was a wonderful shared experience.

Yeah, it's wicked expensive, but I figured it is a once in a life time experience, and this lego set exceeded all expectations. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. Though at a certain point, you have to stop building and sort the pieces by color / type or you will lose your mind trying to find all the pieces.

One small complaint - we couldn't find about 8 - 10 pieces. Perhaps 4 were because we used the wrong pieces at the wrong time (based on pieces left over). But there were a few missing pieces which we had to scrounge from our Lego inventory on hand. But all the critical / unique pieces were all there, and anyone taking on this project should have a certain amount of Lego experience prior to making the attempt.

Lego will replace missing parts for free, just go to Lego.com and click "missing parts" at the bottom of the page, a week later you'll have the missing parts...
