Because the video was taken from above, it's going to make the palace look smaller than it is. It should appear more grandiose from a front-on angle.
The Palace would look better if it were larger, of course, but ultimately, it's not a terribly interesting building so it would mostly just look... bigger. Thus, I can understand that TLG is trying to hit a certain price point, and appreciate that they managed to include the play features that they did.
Wonder if they're counting Hans Carbonite chamber as a '10th' figure OR we don't see Slave Leia (which is what I suspect is the 10th fig.).
Bounty Hunter Leia
I'm not sure how I feel about characterizing the last 4 as Minifigures. And why only one Gamorrean?
Also the BoMarr Monk is counted like they did the Sentry Droid in Luke's Landspeeder set.
I feel minifigs should be characterized as having a unique sculpt or print on them.
Slightly off-topic... and this may change before the final version comes out... why can't they EVER get Luke right on the skiff? He should NOT be wearing his glove at that point;
Even so the bounty hunter Leia, carbon Han and normal Han together push the time frame slightly earlier - Slave Leia and Luke would push it later (like the old Palace) so it still does make some kind of sense.
We've also had a couple of Slave Leia's already - is this the first Bounty Hunter Leia?
Personally I'ld rather have had Han with the skiff and C3PO or another guard in the Palace set.
Nice to finally get a Leia bounty hunter fig.
Though not Lego, I might cross-over when MOCing this set into a larger set, by dusting off my original 1980's hasbro Jabba the Hutt. Though nice, this Jabba still seems small to me. Like a young Jabba from the remake of Episode IV.
Btw, I love the addition of the green frog. A Hutt needs snack food!
I have the original and I really wanted to hate this in order to keep my wallet happy. It's going to turn up in my basket at some point isn't it ?!??!
Oh well - why fight the inevitable!
