I haven't really been keeping up on LEGO much lately, but was looking through the pics from C4 and saw this bad boy. Wow, it looks amazing. Like others have said, if I had the money/space for it, I would be all over it. I don't envision any scenario where I could talk my wife into a $500 "toy" though, no matter what it is. It would have to be the only thing I bought all year. There are times though where I think it would be cool to be a LEGO collector, there's a lot of neat stuff and some of it can be scaled to the minifigs themselves.
