Instead? I think you mistyped 'as well' :-) It's Star Wars, there's enough fandumb to go around all the trilogies...
I have only ever seen the versions where George Lucas added a bunch of unnecessary CGI stuff to them. I think Lucas did more damage to Star Wars than Disney has...
Inclusion of mini vehicles is interesting choice as well. Hopefully at the same scale as the cloud car that came with the bespin planet set.
I don't want to lead the chorus of folks crapping on this set, but I don't get the weird scale vehicles, and vignette-sized scenes. I think I'm spoiled by having the Ewok Village as my point of reference for large-scale SW sets. This is definitely closer to the DS in terms of design, rather than the EV/AoH playset design.
I do like the bonanza of minifigures. This is a solid 'Meh' for me. But I do like that they are innovating on how they approach designing these sets. Hopefully, it'll be a good seller. I wouldn't mind a similarly designed Starkiller Base or Snoke's Ship if they get around to do doing new trilogy sets.
(I'll not mention a Coruscant, Naboo, Mustafar or Tatooine playset for the Prequel Trilogy.)
This sucks. It's a shapeless mess. If not for the minifigs and vehicles it'd be hard to tell what it's supposed to be. Looks like someone tried to make Cloud City out of #75159 Death Star. The box art looks like a MOC that someone photoshopped into LEGO packaging. It's $70 overpriced. Cloud Car is the wrong color and has no proper windscreen. The Carbon Freeze Chamber was done better in a $25 set.
This is pretty disappointing. I would have rather gotten a more-detailed re-release of the original Cloud City.
