EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Star Wars fans can build out iconic scenes from the movie saga with the LEGO Star Wars Death Star Final Duel set, model number 75291, and LEGO Star Wars AT-AT set, model number 75288.

The Death Star Final Duel set includes 775 pieces for building out the battle between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader from Return of the Jedi. Build Emperor Palpatine's Throne Room that folds out for easy play. Activate the mini-figure Force Jump function to try to make Luke jump from one level to the next. Beware of the collapsing bridge and stairs. The Emperor's throne also rotates, and a reactor shaft is located conveniently next to it so you can have Darth Vader throw him down. This includes five minifigures. Two Imperial Royal Guards with weapons stand watch at the throne room entrance. You also get Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, and Emperor Palpatine. Luke and Darth have lightsabers, while Palpatine has Force lightning accessories. Luke and the Emperor have two faces, while Darth Vader's scarred face is revealed when you remove his helmet. The guards have no faces.

The AT-AT set includes 1,267 pieces for building one of the iconic walkers as seen in The Empire Strikes Back. This 13-inch tall vehicle has different sections that open up, such as the cockpit and a side panel, for easy play. Launch the spring-loaded shooters and pose up the AT-AT's legs for realistic movement. Three minifigures can sit in the cockpit, and six are included: Luke Skywalker, General Veers, two AT-AT drivers, and two Snowtroopers. Luke and General Veers have 2 faces, while the others only have one. Each figure has a different weapon accessory. One of the Snowtroopers can ride the buildable speeder bike. And use the working winch to pull Luke Skywalker up so he can throw the thermal detonator element into the AT-AT's bottom hatch.

Is It Fun?

These Star Wars sets have lots of space for kids and adults to recreate favorite scenes from the movies. Fans will love all the details in these sets that make them great for play as well as display.

Who It’s For

Death Star Final Duel is for ages 9 and up. The AT-AT is for ages 10 and up. Both sets will appeal to LEGO and Star Wars fans.

What To Be Aware Of

It took 1.5 hours to build the Star Wars Death Star Final Duel set and 4.5 hours for the AT-AT set. The instructions were easy to follow. We were a little disappointed in the sturdiness of some of the AT-AT's pieces. Every time we tried to launch the projectiles, the sides of the vehicle's cockpit popped off.
