This toy was just fine. My son enjoyed assembling it and was delighted with it. No issues with the toy itself.\nThe letdown was to be told by Walmart.com that the local store was out of stock, which led me to hurry and order it on-line so it'd get here for Christmas. A couple days after ordering it, I was kind of bummed to see that the local Wal-Mart had plenty of them there. I'd rather have bought it in-store instead of paying the extra couple bucks for shipping.

What our shoppers say:
It was nice to know the item would be there when I arrived. It was a bit of an inconvenience having to go to the photo center to pick up the item. There was only one (very overworked) very nice young lady working in two departments and did her best to take care of all customers in a timely fashion. She did call for a manager who never came. When another co-worker happened to walk by she was asked to help and she said she was finishing something (I can't remember exactly what she said but I told her customers come first). She proceeded to help out which impressed me. All in all it was a good experience - just a bit more waiting than I expected. I would order on line for store pick up again. Maybe just not on a Sunday. Thank you.
I am 9 years old and I bought this with a Christmas gift card. This is a fun toy to play with I like the Sith troopers. But the missle launcher breaks off sometimes so you have to be patient. This would be a grand toy for someone who likes Lego Star Wars sets.
This is the set my 9 YR old wanted to get with his monthly allowance. We couldn't fit it at our local Wal-Mart, so we got it online. I paid the $.97 ship to home, because it would take longer to ship to store. Kids don't have patience to wait a week for a toy. It arrived in 3 days. He had it built in 45 minutes. Any kid who loves Star Wars & Levi will love this toy. I only wish it was more challenging.
I ordered several of these online for delivery to a local store; as many as the site said were available for pickup. When I arrived at the store there were more on the shelves than the site said were available.\n\nI went to customer service to ask if they would price match... why wouldn't a Walmart store match the Walmart.com price? I learned that they do not. Essentially the reason is that it's a really crummy store policy created by really greedy people. So, order online and you'll get a reasonable price but they'll gouge you in-store.\n\nWhen I went to the back of the store to pick up the items I'd ordered it took 19 'dots' on their 'push the button for help' button\/monitor for someone to show up and I truly believe the only reason it happened at all was because I stopped an obviously on-break employee to ask if anyone was working in the internet orders area. I had to convince the employee to go check.\n\nWhen someone finally did show up and an eternity later after they'd found my order it turned out that all the boxes were taped together. After the department manager took off the tape every single box was damaged. I don't pay full or even full sale price for damaged products. I cancelled my order and the remaining two orders which \"hadn't arrived\" though I noted that all of the products I ordered where in stock on the store's shelves.\n\nWhat I have learned is that Toys 'R Us is the absolute place to buy LEGO because they will PRICE MATCH ANY LEGITIMATE COMPETITOR without being bozoriffic about it. How absurd is that? Walmart stores won't match Walmart.com prices but Toys 'R Us will take anybody's? Seems like Walmart should learn how to run a business and Toys 'R Us would be a good business to model itself after.\n\nWhile I cancelled the order at Walmart the product itself is really great. I love that there are two Old Republic Troopers and think the Sith Troopers are pretty awesome too. It's fun to have them on opposite sides of my desk and let them shoot it out.\n\nI'm not the biggest fan of the speeder but I like to buy this set for the wicked-cool minifigs. The speeder is pretty much just bonus bricks to build with later to me. I wonder what I'll do with all those big curved pieces... hmmm!
My 9 yo son and I had a great time assembling the LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon on Christmas Eve. The instructions were thorough and complete and not a single one of the over 1000 pieces were missing. I think the price is high so it is hard to consider it a great value, but the quality and detail LEGO puts into their products has a cost. If you or your children like LEGO and Star Wars, this is a great toy to add to your collection.

Landspeeder was a hit
I bought this for my nephew for Christmas. The whole experience was wonderful. I bought it online and did the 'Pick up Today' option. It was great to be able to look at the reviews, order it, and then just walk into the store, pick it up and walk back out so I could go back to work. The product is exactly what he wanted and he had it put together in no time.
