I read somewhere that they ended up destroying 7 or 8 of those Death Stars during filming. That's a lot of cash at $500 each!

Product placement. They were probably free. However, I would have loved being on the team that built them.

The production budget of SM:H was $175 million.  They blew up cars and ****.  $3500 in LEGO Death Stars is a rounding error on a project like this.   ;)

Legos are like matter - they can never be destroyed, just separated into smaller bits.  I'm more surprised that they had to build 8 of those suckers, as they take forever.   The instructions for the set are spiral bound.

Okay, okay, for us poor folk who do not get free stuff from Disney, that's a lot of cash. :P
