The "display stand" is basically a kick stand that snaps onto the bottom between the main hangar bay and the dome over the reactor. It is small and unobtrusive but lets the model sit horizontal when it is parked, without leaning or tipping. You can easily snap it off for play and then put it back on for display, which is a nice touch.
The design isn't perfect. The main hull consists of four big triangular sections that snap onto a hidden chassis at an angle to create the classic Star Destroyer lines. There is minimal space between the four sections, but if you look at the front end of the ship from _exactly_ above, below, or from either side, you can see a narrow strip of light where the four sections approach each other but don't quite merge. Also, where the smooth top and bottom sections come together at the sides, the rough, detailed area between them is somewhat thicker than it would be in a perfectly scaled model. But these are very small nits to pick and they don't really detract from the finished model, unless you are an stickler for absolute perfection (in which case, the Ultimate Collectors Series Star Destroyer can still be had, for vastly more money).
The completed model is about 9" long and about half that wide and tall. It is DENSE. Most Lego sets are at least somewhat airy when built, to accommodate mini-figures and so on, but this one is mostly bricks all the way through. It feels reassuringly solid in your hand, and it is easy to pick up and play with without feeling like you're going to break it, which isn't always the case with the bigger Lego Star Wars vehicles. My little boy dropped mine once when he was carrying it one-handed, but the repair job only took a couple of minutes.
Although the Midi-Scale Star Destroyer looks good just sitting on the shelf, it practically cries out to be picked up and zoomed around the room. About five minutes after I finished building it, I was flying it over my head making laser blast sounds and talking like Darth Vader. Any toy that can make me feel that much like a kid again has earned its five stars. Highly recommended.
It's a kit with 423+ pieces, over 9.5 inches long, nicely designed (especially the engines), good build (not great but not boring), nice weight/heft to the model and also comes with a simple, effective display stand. Makes a great desktop model.
- As mentioned above, a well designed and beautiful desktop model than can also be played with.
- Details on the ship such as Rear View detailing three KDY Destroyer-1 Ion Engines and four Cygnus Spaceworks Gemon-4 Ion Engines...
- ...Bridge/Communications Tower and twin Deflector-Shield Generator Domes...
- ...Turbolaser Turrets (3 on each side)...
- ...Bottom of model details with Secondary Launch Bay towards top, Primary Docking Bay in the middle (where Princess Leia's Blockade Runner docked), just below that is the Solar Ionization Reactor.
- Simple yet effect display stand (which can be attached/detached from bottom of model).
- You'll notice gaps between the top and bottom sections which for the most part aren't too noticeable except for the front where you can see through it too much.
- At times the engines can fall off during play.
- No minifigures (for the adult builder(AFOL) that's fine but would've helped with selling to younger builders)
But...like I said before...nice line throughout, great for display especially on your desktop at work (dreaming of conquering the galaxy...;), decent for parts (lot's of angle plates and tiles) and it's quite 'swooshable'.
The Empire would be proud of such a representation of their awesome, wedge-shaped Imperial-Class Star Destroyer...the core of their navy...build and behold it's might...!
