Palpatine's arrest is my favorite scene from Star Wars. When i discovered it was a Lego set, I was very excited! It has got to be one of my favorite lego sets that i have. It took me 1 day to build and the only part I had trouble with, was the window. It took me about 30 minutes to "install" it into the set. It was a little confusing, and hard to put into the slot. But, when i got it finished, it's a pretty cool part on the set. A down side, is that I have had to fix the window about 4 or 5 times, and i've had it for about a month now. When I fix it, i always have to get the instructions back out and fix it, been then works fine. However, this set is VERY overpriced! It is DEFINITELY not worth over $100. I recommend waiting until this set is on sale, which is when i got mine. It is probably about $100 because of all the minifigures that it comes with. These are very rare and hard to find figures. Especially the brand new Mace Windu minifigure it comes with. Overall, I would recommend this set to any star wars fan!

This set looks relatively small for 645 pieces, but most of it goes into creating the various details of the office and the hidden features that enable Palpatine to take on the Jedi Masters.

Pros:

First, the minifigures:

Palpatine: Completely new torso design, movie accurate double-sided head, and first ever golden-hilted lightsaber. He shares Dooku's hairpiece. Perfect addition to any Lego Star Wars collection.

Anakin Skywalker: Same torso design as the one included in 9494 Anakin's Jedi Interceptor, movie accurate double-sided head, and a cape. He is good, but not fantastic.

Mace Windu: Same torso design as his Clone Wars version, great looking head, and a cape. I would give him the same rating as I give Anakin Skywalker.

Saesee Tiin: Completely new torso, movie accurate head, and a cape. I would say that he is one of the better minifigures in this set.

Agen Kolar: He is the best minifigure included. Completely new torso, great looking head, great looking hairpiece, and a cape. He is a must-have for any Lego Star Wars collection.

Kit Fisto: Same as the versions included in 7661 Jedi Starfighter with Hyperboost Ring and 8088 ARC-170 Starfighter, but with a cape. They could have given him a new design.

Now to the set:

Jedi Airspeeder: Simple to build, movie accurate, and great-looking. Lightsaber fits inside the cockpit alongside the minifigure. I like it.

Chancellor's Office: Complete with a sliding door, statues, lamps, chairs, hidden lightsaber/force lightning compartments, pop-up floor boards, Mace Windu catapult, a desk, and a falling window. The statues, lamps, chairs, hidden compartments, desk, and floor boards are designed well.

Cons:

This set costs $89.99 and has ~100 fewer pieces than the Fury-Class Interceptor.

They could have put more space behind the chair so Palpatine and Mace Windu can fight there.

The Mace Windu catapult functions alongside the falling window, which is movie-inaccurate.

They could have included more floor outside of the sliding door where Mace Windu moved to right after Kit Fisto was cut down.

Overall this set is really great. It comes with awesome mini figures and is fun to build. The one downside is the falling windows is really unstable. It naturally tends to lean out from the set and breaks way too easily. Every time this set is played with I end up having to fix the windows has some part of it has come apart.

Usually I don't like the little mechanisms in Lego sets, as I just put them on a shelf, but this one's were nice--it's got two secret compartments where Palpatine's force lightning and lightsaber can be hidden, plus the window behind the desk falls open and propels whomever is standing on a certain area through it, like in the movie whem Mace gets killed. The doors slide open too.

This is a great set and all but if I were you, I'd buy each of the mini figures separately and then buy the set without the mini figures. I've seen this set on other sites that sell this set assembled or disassembled without the mini figures for like as low as $35. It may be annoying to do this but it's better than paying over $100 for a set that's 600 something pieces.

When i got this i found out it was really good, the new charaters, they were amazing! I don`t really care, but the windows were frusterating. But a very good set, until it saw the price! 100 dollars for this is CRAZY! you may have to wait, even though you want it, until th price goes between 80-85. Thank you!

My grandson loves all things Star Wars so for his 12th birthday he asked for this product. It was supposed to be delivered no later than his birthday, but it didn't arrive until 2 full weeks after his birthday. Because he turned 12, he had the ability to wait and to understand that sometimes presents don'e arrive as promised. He was happy, his grandmother was not!
