This review is from: LEGO Star Wars 9496 Desert Skiff (Toy)
I purchased this along with Jabba's Palace and it is a great piece. Very easy to put together and functional. My 2 year-old son loves it already. He loaded up the Skiff with all the mini-figures and has enjoyed playing with it. My son is pretty gentle with the Lego figures and sets and this is pretty durable for him. He spent the morning 'flying' the Skiff around the living room and there no breaks in the set.
I like it because the mini-figures are really well done. Boba Fett is great and Lando and his mask are really detailed and well thought out. My son loves putting the mini-figures in the Sarlacc Pit and opening in closing the mouth. This is good hand-eye coordination for him and even this simple task is really fun for him.
I paid $24.99 for the set and would probably think twice about paying $39.99. I was told these sets will be around for awhile so wait for the price to go down.
