Rated 3 out of 5 by from Perfect Christmas present It was a quite fun build but not much value for the money. Pretty straight forward build and would recommend this set to 7-11 years old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the lugga beast If I am honest I really just bought this set for the lugga beast and the lugga beast does not disappoint. I know a lot of people complained about the blue color but I like it. Solid build does not break apart when kids play with it. After building set I really love the entire set. I would have like it to be a bit bigger but over all it is fun and the minifigures that come with it are great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 'Why does everyone want to go back to Jakku?!' The biggest problem with this set far and away is the price. If it wasn't for such a hefty price tag given the size of the set, it would be fantastic for what it is. The minifigures are great, especially Teedo and Unkar. Fantastic moulding and fine additions to my collection. For the price tag, Constable Zuvio or maybe another of Jakku's may odd-looking aliens could have been included. The set itself is a decent set piece. The printed sheet is wonderfully done and the finished product looks good. Maybe some work benches or one of the other little stalls would have made this feel like a more complete Niima Outpost. The Luggabeast is also fantastic, detailed and looks just like it does in the film. It might have been nice to see a Happabore and the fountain, maybe even including Finn, which would have made it worth the price tag. Overall, it's a decent little set, but I would recommend only getting it when in the sale.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice...but... I do like this scene, Jakku is a great addition and I personally prefer Star Wars 'scenes' rather than a lot of the individual ships/transportation that are released. However as others have said, it's just too small. When you compare this to most of the 'scene' sets over the last 10 years (Mos Eisley for example), this Jakku set is simply too small. It should have been at least double the size, with more market stalls and maybe include Finn and a Storm Trooper or two, then it would have been worth the price tag. I did get mine for a much cheaper price that I was happy with, so overall I'm happy, but if I was going to pay full price for this then I would be very disappointed with the set size. I would happily pay this price for a bigger Jakku scene, but not for the size it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Star Wars location set This is a really fun build if you like Star Wars location sets, which I do. Unkar Plutt's market stall was fun to build and manages to look dilapidated and like it was built using whatever materials were available at Niima Outpost. I enjoy that it has a little safe for portions/gold coins (whatever they are meant to be), a gun in a hidden drawer, pieces of droid lying around, tools in a box beneath the awning and a little entrance arch. I don't find that the finished set is too small – I don't play with my sets anyway, so as a display piece it's a perfect size. I enjoyed building the Luggabeast even more than the market stall, and Lego Star Wars creatures is definitely something I'd like to see more of. The four leg pieces are specially moulded for this set, I think, but otherwise I believe the Luggabeast has been created using existing pieces, which is very creative! I don't mind the azure, I actually quite like it. So much in the Lego Star Wars range is grey or desert coloured, it's lovely to have some bright colour for a change, and this is probably the way the armour looked when it was new. The minifigures are great! You get Rey (with her hairpiece), Unkat Plutt, Teedo and BB-8. Pros: - Lovely Star Wars location set - Fun to build - Great minifigures - Excellent display value Cons: - A bit expensive - I wish the rations were blue (if the cold "coins" are meant to be rations) Recommended for any Star Wars Lego fans, especially if you like location sets or alien beasts!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Niima Outpost This is a pretty cool set. The Luggabeast is an excellent build. It looks great and it's fun to play with. The outpost itself is pretty nice as well. The plastic awning that covers the pillared walkway looks good, and they give you an extra one, which isn't necessary, but is really nice nonetheless. There are some cool features on the inside, packed into a relatively small space, but the whole thing opens up to give you a lot more room. The figures are good too, and fitting for the scene. The set feels a little pricey for it's overall size, but the parts are there and it seems like it goes well with a lot of the other sets that I own. All in all, this is a good one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty decent set You have the Lego characters but need somewhere for them to visit... here it is! This set works well with the Lego collection (obviously) and is a good fit for the Star Wars fans.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent display piece, but a tad expensive While I do think this set provides good collectibility and is a good display piece, I don't think this is a worthwhile set to be used for play based on its price and limited play features.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Alien fun :) LEGO gives us a lot of military vehicles in their Star Wars line, but not enough civilian themed sets, which sets this product apart. It's a bit pricy for the size, but I love Star Wars aliens, and so for me this set was a no brainer. The Luggabeast is the highlight, very fun design. Teedo is also a great figure. The trading post is somewhat lacking in my opinion, but Unkar Plutt figure is great, and it's nice to get another Rey and BB8.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from '...One Quarter Portion' This set is in a very similar style to Battle on Takodana. It's a small set with great minifigures but it doesn't quite come together as well as it could have. The overall idea is fantastic. Star Wars locations are rare as Lego sets and a lot of story takes place on Jakku. The luggabeast is movie accurate with great articulation but the bright azure colour just doesn't work. Either Lego should have used a darker blue or used less of it. It would be easy to improve it using your own bricks but why it was designed like this I don't know. As for Unkar's stand it just feels so disjointed. The dilapidated, worn and old feeling come across well and the colour palette is true to Jakku, but it's just too small. To really do it justice the build needed to be bigger. The details are nice and include parts for a battle droid, a hidden blaster and rations. The minifigures are what really makes this set. Rey has detailed printing and comes with her staff. BB-8 is also included but if you want Unkar's thugs then you need to buy another set and a book. Unkar himself is a great, ugly minifigure with a unique headpiece. The Teedo also comes with a unique headpiece and it's staff but in reality it's legs should have been smaller. This is a nice little set but it's not the best representation of Jakku. However I think this set is worth it just for the minifigures and is a good addition to any Star Wars collection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from please hear this, lego the reason I got this set was for unkar teedo and the luggebeast. They were OK but the real disappointment was unkar's stand. it can barely hold one character. I don't want to keep purchasing big sets like this just for a few alien minifigures. I think lego should make star wars alien battle packs or something cheap that contains some alien background characters. I hope you please consider this

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad LEGO set This was an okay set, and the two alien minifigures Unkar Plutt & Teedo are very detailed. The Luggabeast was cool, albeit too colourful. The Niima Outpost seemed too small to be film accurate. I wish TLG gave us a Constable Zuvio, Bobbajo, Athgar Heece or Sarco Plank minifigure instead of Rey & BB-8. Now that would of been cool!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More fun to build than I thought! I actually bought this set to get the Rey and BB-8 figures. I was pleasantly surprised though in the build. I had a really good time building this one. It was not too complex but had some fun elements - loved the hidden drawer! My seven year old daughter has been playing with the set since I built it and reenacting all the Star Wars scenes with it. If you're on the fence, just buy this set!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good adaptation Encounter on Jakku is a pretty nice set. The minifigures are very good, the builds... We'll get to that. Minifigures: Rey- Rey is the same version we got in the most recent Millenium Falcon and Rey's Speeder(but without the headwrap) but this makes sense. Also, I didn't get either of these sets, so it was nice to get this great minifigure. BB-8- The same one in the Force Awakens sets, and my second one, but a good addition to the set. Teedo- This is a very well-made figure and very accurate to the movie. Short legs would have been more accurate, but the normal legs are understandable because he can sit on the luggabeast, which I'll get to later. He has an excellent two-colored headpiece and nice printing on the torso and legs. -Unkar Plutt Plutt is arguably the best figure in the set. He has a very nice headpiece that fits over his torso, which is plain(Understandably). The print on the head is very nice, and it includes some nice yellow stripes that continue onto the legs. They really nailed that blobfish look to him. Now, onto the builds: -Luggabeast The luggabeast is an excellent build, with 4 new molds for the legs. The inverted 4 by 4 round tiles have very nice prints for the eyes, and there is a lot of clever greebling around the whole thing, including two roller skate pieces on the front of the head. The medium azure color for the bluish-grey part is okay, but I personally would have gone for more of a sand blue. Overall the better build of the set. -Unkar Plutt's shack This building is kind of accurate to the movie. It includes a flexible plastic flap for part of the roof. There is a window where Plutt gives his patrons portions, like in the movie. Unfortunately, no actual portions are included in the set, but there is a safe with some gold coins. There is a somewhat pointless feature with a secret hiding spot for a blaster in the steps, which I feel like was thrown in because there weren't enough action features. Overall, this was a pretty good set. The main build was a bit less than mediocre, but everything else was great. What would have been cool to see instead, however, would be a playset with a ship graveyard like in the movie, perhaps with a destroyed TIE fighter or X-wing, or a medium-sized fallen AT-AT that Rey lives in or possibly just part of it, which would include the luggabeast and Teedo, for the same price. Speaking of price, however, the price for this set was a bit steep, but that is expected with a Star Wars set. But overall it is a decent set with good minifigures and a good build.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great build and incredible display piece I knew this was a day one purchase from when LEGO first released the set images. The luggabeast appeared perfectly represented and niima outpost so cleverly detailed for what is a medium-sized set. BUILD The build is split in between the two main components: the luggabeast first followed by niima outpost. Although the l-beast uses moulded legs, there is a surprising number of clever building techniques, using brackets and plates blended seemlessly with bricks. The result is a fantastic representation to the movie, and will leave most builders of any level with a few new tricks up their sleeve. These techniques are most transferable to themes such as space, vehicles and sculptures. Niima outpost is again littered with techniques throughout, and demonstrates how a location or building can be well-represented with relatively few bricks. The sail is a great touch, and really makes the outpost a perfect model for display. PLAY Both the l-beast and the outpost are full of playalibity. The l-beasts legs a movable and the outpost can be displayed in several ways with a few clever functions built into the design. OVERALL Encounter on jakku is a truly enjoyable set; the build had me smiling throughout, and it will be some time before I can bring myself to disassemble either the beast or the outpost. This set shows once again what can be achieved, both aesthetically and functionally, with thoughtful building and clever techniques. For me, this is where LEGO surpasses all other building systems. If you enjoy Star Wars, Lego, Star Wars Lego, and good times, then I highly recommend encounter on jakku.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rey: "Him?" I think this is a great set in general but is priced a little too high. I also Think Finn and a storm trooper would be a good add to the mix. but that is all i have to say. Plus reys speeder would go good with this.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from ok The hut was very small the set only had three people and luggabeast is way smaller than he looks in the photos. And tedo does not have short legs which is highly annoying but I love how there are no stickers. It is way overpriced.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More a display piece than a play experience…. I am one of the older generation of Lego builders so have grown fussy with age as to what I expect from Lego. This is a very small set which has limited play experience. My observations are : 1. The Luggabeast has limited movement both in its head and legs. Much has been written about the bright colours used by Lego and I agree, it simply looks wrong. Such a bright blue does not really provide the worn and rough look you see in the film. I appreciate for such a small set you are not going to get ample movements but the Luggabeast comes across as a little boring to play with and more something to show on display with your other Lego sets. 2. The 4 figures (if you include BB8) are OK - Unkar Plutt and Teedo are nice additions albeit the mould on Plutt means the head does not move. 3. As with many Star Wars sets the price is very high for what you get. There is no doubt the set enhances the Force Awakens sets that came out last year but given its size and limited playing capability I think kids will quickly move on to something else. Hopefully Lego remember us older ones and bring out a large BB8 to build or as so many rumours suggest, a UCS Death Star or an updated cloud city.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs more for your money The set is pretty solid, what you see is what you get. No play features besides a hidden gun. You only get two new exclusive minifigures, which is disappointing, granted how many unique cool creatures are in the actual scene from the movie. I would have loved to see this set for $80, which would give us a larger outpost and more minifigures. You also have to get the other sets to make the scene complete in my opinion. The best lego sets are able to stand alone, but this one makes me feel that you also need the Millennium Falcon to ge finn and rey's speeder for the unkarr thug minifigure.
