Got me a budget LEGO NES. Saved a couple hundred off the official set.

Re: Lego Talk!

What is the biggest piece set that's easily commercially available, Millenium Falcon?

There goes Lego again with their stock models.

I feel for that price they should have included a scale Snow Speeder. Would have made up for the 800 less pieces then the Millenium Falcon. I didn't realize the Star Destroyer was 2000 less pieces then the Millenium Falcon.

Here's an article from Lego themselves. But this is from last year. They've since introduced the Titanic model which I think should be considered the biggest since it has 9090 pieces. More then the Coliseum and not almost entirely made of single studs like the world map they quote.

Re: Lego Talk!

I really don't get the Star Wars Lego stuff.

$800 is ridiculous for that thing. I'd rather spend a fraction of the money and get a more screen-accurate Hasbro AT-AT if I wanted an AT-AT.

And it's still vagina repellent.

I think something can be said about the fun of the build to justify getting the Lego version.

Iím like you though, ultimately I would use it as a display piece and Iíd rather have a more screen accurate model to display. $800 can buy you some pretty great pieces from Sideshow.

Theyíre all a bit too rich for my blood so Iíll continue to watch from the sideline.

Re: Lego Talk!

Looks cool, but unnecessary. I still have my original Hasbro AT-AT. It was probably the coolest Star Wars toy I had as a kid. That being said, it is big, awkward and unwieldy to have on display and I assume this one will be pretty much the same, only more fragile.

Re: Lego Talk!

^ They thought of that. And for $800 they better have thought of that.

Once fully assembled, 6,785 pieces of Lego are very heavy, so to ensure the AT-AT can stand on its own four legs without them collapsing under the weight, the joints are made with a combination of Lego Technic turntable gears paired with worm gears. It ensures the joints won’t buckle, but it also means the legs can’t be posed by hand. Instead, an included brick-built tool that can be stashed inside the AT-AT is used to adjust the leg joints, one by one, for the perfect pose.

Re: Lego Talk!

I built the Seinfeld set. Took about three days and a few hours while watching tv each day.

Itís nice but smaller then I expected.
Now itís sitting on a desk near the front door otherwise not sure what to do with it.

Wife talked me into buying Central Perk.

Re: Lego Talk!

Man I want that (along with the new Batmobile), but I'll get thrown in the doghouse by the wife since I recently just got the AT-AT, the Daily Bugle, some Mario Legos (including the Mario 64 Question Mark block) and Tantive IV (Yes I know, I went crazy)
