Most of modern Star Wars' play sets have been half-baked.
The POTF2 ones were more like set pieces for a stage version of Star Wars. The most realized set being the Hoth one, which was of course, the one of the four that needed updating from vintage the least (and they still got the turret wrong). I never owned the carbon freeze set, though...was that POTJ?
The cardstock diorama set were great display pieces, but a kid would destroy those in a few days.
Episode one...the generator duel wasn't much. The hanger was hampered by the Qui-Gonn electronic
WOOKIE RAGE Jedi attack figure (it was sort of fun to make a small Liam Neeson attack everything). Oh, and that R2 case that was sort of a trade federation hall way. Yeah.
Episode 2....the Geonosis Arena had potential, the idea of smaller sets connecting to it. But it didn't look good. I never owned one. Later modded in COBRA MOUNTAIN...why did Cobra have battle droid parts on the floor?
Akator Mustafar....if they'd made the bottom a separatist control room, it would've felt substantial instead of just a big stand for Anakin and Obi-Wan.
I sort of understand Hasbro. There were always large vehicles they could make instead.
