Death Star Trash Compactor Diorama 75339

Begin a creative mission to recreate a legendary Star Wars: A New Hope scene with this Death Star Trash Compactor Diorama (75339) set. It is packed with authentic details, including moving walls and a dianoga's head. Place Luke Skywalker and Han Solo (both dressed as Stormtroopers), Princess Leia and Chewbacca inside Garbage Compactor 3263827, and C-3PO and R2-D2 at the compactor's controls trying to switch it off. Attach the plaque with Han Solo's dry quip ("One thing's for sure. We're all gonna be a lot thinner.") to complete a nostalgic display piece.

    Notes: Hm. I feel like this is a good set, but not at the price that it is right now. Even putting aside the less than standard price per piece ratio at the moment (which this set can't justify the difference with the extra ten bucks it's asking for) there just needs to be a little more going on with this one. It feels a bit confused as to whether it wants to be a display or play set and kind of feels compromised on both fronts- the play feature is done well but can feel a little too stiff and the model has a lot of angles that makes displaying the whole of it a bit difficult and due to needing to pack in the action feature, can come off a bit less display worthy. The minifigures also just aren't special either- normally wouldn't mind in this case but this set has a high price on it that just makes the lack of extra attention and detail stand out more.
