      I think this might be the best location-based Star Wars set TLG has ever done, for one key reason: it looks just as beautiful and authentic from the outside as from the inside. And, to be fair, there aren't quite that many setttings in the film series, at least in the original trilogy, that can make that claim.

      Cloud City would be a neat design for TLG to try and tackle in this same fashion, but it's not exactly a convenient shape (even less so than the Death Star, which they have managed fairly well).

      Regarding the flick-fire, I agree with your comment from the review that it really does no harm. As annoying as flick-fires may be to some people, I think this current design of flick-fire is one of the best action features TLG has created. It can be attached or detached without major modification to a set design, it's a piece that can be easily used for something other than a launcher (which isn't true of most earlier LEGO launcher functions), but most importantly it's small and inconspicuous.
