Rated 4 out of 5 by MaxTube55 A Little Dissapointing
This set is nice and has great figs, but here are some problems with it and some suggestions I have. This set should have been larger to get it more accurate to the movie, it should have been just black with just trans orange stripes, it should've had some of the details around and the hose above as well as a printed tile that looked more like the one Vader used to control the chamber. Now the minifigs are good, but too accommodate a larger more accurate version we needed Leia, Lando, Chewbacca with C-3PO on back, 2 Stormtroopers, an Imperial Officer and Vader. But I am begging for a $70 - $100 way bigger, more detailed, 10.5 (for half a C-3PO) minifig set. You must do this LEGO!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ravenclaw97 "Lego Han- I love you." 'I know."
Overall, this set can be summed up pretty quickly as decent. The build isn't terrible, the mini figures are great, but the play features are very dismissive. The only feature that is actually entertaining is the one that turns Han into a Space Popsicle. The other features feel forced, but they really don't detract much value. While it may not be the best set, it does make a great parts pack and does have a good amount of pieces for the price paid. The mini figures are most definitely the reason to buy the set, as I haven't been able to afford a set with the new Han in Carbonite or the new Boba Fett since they came out, and the Ugnaught is a great new mini figure as well. The figures are what got me to consider the set, and the parts mixture (the trans orange, the angled brackets, the stairs, etc.) is what made me purchase. If you're considering buying the set, I recommend doing so, as it will hold you over until we get a new Cloud City set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Grouse Great, but not enough
I have wanted Lego to make a set of the Carbon Freezing Chamber my entire life. I had the Cloud City set which featured a freezing room, but I always wanted a set of just this one room. When I heard this was coming out, I got really excited but was a little disappointed when I saw the picture. The minifigures are great and the printed bricks is beautiful, but where is the other half of the chamber? And the freezing function is nothing like the movie nor does it really seem realistic. I think they should have gone with their fist design.
It was a quick build and it looks good, but I wish there was more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JulesPandas125 Wonderful Cloud City Set!
At first, the only reason I wanted this set was because of the Boba Fett minifigure, since I didn't have one and well, he looks EPIC. But after building this set I realized just how much I loved the chamber, not just Boba. Let's start this review with the minifigures: Han Solo, Boba Fett, Han Solo in carbonite and Ugnaught. The Han Solo is of Han in his white shirt and brown pants, the exact outfit which he was frozen in (nice attention to detail, Lego). Boba Fett looks amazing compared to Lego's older version of his minifigure, with his jetpack, cape and rifle. This minifigure is the same one which is included with the Slave 1, so if you're JUST interested in the Boba Fett minifigure, buy this for cheaper instead. Ugnaught is currently exclusive to this set and Han in carbonite has amazing detail.
Let's move onto the chamber itself!
There is an elevating feature where minifigures can be lifted up to the top of the chamber. The function which allows users to "freeze" Han Solo, could use work. As others have mentioned, it would have been better if Han fell straight down, instead of backwards an THEN down. The console where Ugnaught works is a nice touch, especially for kids who want to play with the set. The stair cases color scheme matches the chamber perfectly. The set can be a bit unstable while building, but is sturdy once completed. Here is a list of pros and cons that I hope you find helpful.
-Unstable while building (sturdy once built)
Overall, I adore this set as it is the only Cloud City set currently available, it has amazing minifigures and simply looks wonderful! It fits well with any The Empire Strikes Back sets, and is an important part of any Lego Star Wars collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by legomaniac5213 Good Functions and Minifigs, but Lacking in Design
Aesthetics and Accuracy: 3 out of 5
-The elevated decking with the computer on it looks great; the lights and vents give it a very industrial feel. It's quite accurate to the movie.
- The little black rim around the elevator does not really match with the rest of the decking, and the mismatching plates under the clear orange bricks that are perpendicular to the stairs to not look good together.
-The stairs and the black rods on one of the side walls are a welcome addition, they give the set some nice dimension. The platform at the bottom of the stairs is a little on the small side though.
-The set looks very unfinished from the back, there is no decking back there and a few blue and red bricks that do not fit well with the color palette of the set are exposed.
-The wall on the side of the decking with the black knob is built out of far too many brick colors. By my count, the lego designers used five on a single wall. That's a little excessive, don't you think?.
-I would have liked to see a hose or two on the decking. That would have added to the visual appeal and to the accuracy of the set.
Stability: 4 out of 5
-Stability is good, the set won't break unless dropped from several feet
Functions: 4 out of 5
-The function that lowers and flips the carbonite block is awesome! Very ambitious and unique on the part of the Lego designers. I wish the function lowered the carbonite block a little further, though.
-The elevator is neat. It's nice how you can lock it in place once it reaches the deck.
-The little lever under the decking where you can "imprison" Han Solo is inaccurate; there was no little prison cell under the decking in the movie! Besides, lever functions like this are incredibly common in Lego sets. I don't even think this function is necessary; two good functions are enough for a set.
Minifigs: 3.5 out of 5
-The printing on the minifigs included in the set are very detailed, and the new Ugnaught adds a lot of value to the set. I especially liked Boba Fett, the stripe on the pauldron added some nice detail. The jetpack is nice too, it even has the missile built into it.
-The the ugnaught and Boba Fett, make this set a good buy for collectors, as these 'figs are rare.
-I would have liked to have seen another minifig in this set; maybe a stormtrooper or Besbin guard to help Boba carry the carbonate block. Leia, Lando Calrissian, or Lobot would have been fitting as well, they would add more to the play experience and enable kids to play through more Besbin scenes.
Value for Money: 4 out of 5
-The original functions add a lot of value to the set, as do the rare minifigures. The decking and the computer were great, but the "wall of many colors" and the unfinished back were real cons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kiki3967 Excellent playset
It's a very good playset from LEGO. It includes Boba Fett, Han Solo, Han Solo in carbonite and an ugnaught. Boba Fett's helmet is amazing and the freezing chamber's details are very good. Very good quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jose0815 Boba Fett. YES!
I have every Boba Fett set. He is my favorite villain in the SW universe. This is one of my favorite scenes in all the movies.
He's no good to me dead! Reads my coffee mug as I build this thing!
A great touch here, is adding a Darth Vader mini fig to it, so it looks like the original scene in my display case. LOVE!
