I picked up one of these bad boys at a K-Mart here in Denver, I could hardly drive because was just so danged excited to go home and put it together.
Okay this playset is sort of heavy, and if its on a top shelf and it falls on your head, you would feel it. The Set itself is all seperate in the box for obvious reasons, the base is two parts and many saller parts make up the main rocky area overloking the arena. There are several "features" and "extentions" It has "force" action, there is a spinning platform, an extendible platform, it can also become larger by adding the Yoda Deuxe toy, the Droid Factory Deluxe, and the Geonsian Hive Deluxe, It fits together PERFECTLY. The Arena floor is actualy rather small, only extendng a bit from the gate. There is then a carboard wall to make it the full size, which is however big you want it to be. There are 2 collapsible pillars which are each 3 parts. the colums still fall a little short on the size, however you can connect two middle pieces and make a 4 part pillar which is actually accurate. You need either a REALLY big imagination or a really big sand pit to make this the whole arena. On a 10 scale this piece gets a 7 and a half, because some parts shown on display models are absent, and instead include a role play book and 20 sided die. It is rather easy to play with and figs fit nicely on the numerous pegs provided. the back playset was also a good idea.
I am hoping that the padme' coming ot next year will have a base that also connects making a pretty long droid assembly line.
