Here it is, this year's big Ultimate Collectors Series LEGO Star Wars set. Much of the Internet has deemed this a travesty, a shameful excuse for a set, a money-grab, positively devoid of any value to anyone. While I can't say I agree with the severity of these sentiments, I do understand some of their roots. In my review, though, I simply show and evaluate the product for what it is, a large playset with 17 figures (counting droids & bigfigs) with a reasonably average price/part ratio.
I'll address the out-of-control community hatred in a separate commentary.
