LEGO Death Star
« on: June 18, 2008, 09:23 AM »
I didn't see a topic thread for this already, so I apologize if there is one.  I was just looking at pics of the upcoming LEGO Death Star at the eurobricks forums, and wow, that is pretty spiffy.  I'm not a Lego collector personally (can't afford to keep up), but this really does look nice.

I no longer collect LEGO due to space and monetary issues but this does look worthy of a purchase. If it's within a reasonable price range, I'm in.

Awesome.  I can't wait to buy this.  Wonder when it's coming out?

Supposed to be able to preorder on 7/1 and it ship around 9/1. $400 seems to be the pricepoint, which is way too rich for my blood, but that is one sweet looking set.

Wow, if there's one set to have - this would be it.

Thanks for the pics Brian.

Up for preorder now, actually.

The set itself is awesome, but what's with the wrong colored hands on some of the minifigs? Come on LEGO, if I'm paying $400 for something, I want accurate colors.

Wow! This thing looks ultra cool. I'd love to get one just to put it together.

Does the pricing seem out of whack?

The set measures 16" x 16" - just seems like it's 2X what it should be in regards to the price.

Then again, the only sets we have are the $10 ones so who am I to judge?

Any word on the piece count?  $400 price tag points at about 4000, is that right?

Damn...I actually want this set, but that's WAY to much money.

These are available now on LEGO.com.  Sounds like people that pre-ordered are getting charged already.

Acutally stopped in at the LEGO store a week or two ago and ordered one... just showed up at my door last night.   Now I just gotta see if it'll fit into my Detolf case so I can display under the DS II  :P
Based on the dimensions, it's gonna be a tight fit and I may need to make some... special modifications...
