Default Who like StarWars and Lego?

Built this over the past 3 days. It was a ton of fun. This thing has 3,152 pieces and is just over 4 feet long.



Some in progress pics.

i want the ultimate millennium falcon. i think it was about $500 and 5200 pieces. if i remember correctly, it was 1-1 minifig scale and had insane amounts of detail. it was also hard to find when it was out, last time i found it for sale, it was at $2500

Awesome! I've thought about buying either that (a friend has one) or the Death Star for slowWS6, since he's really into the Star Wars pieces. I really love the Imperial Star Cruiser, myself.

His latest set, though, was the Sopwith Camel. I bought it for him on impulse, and he loves it. I'm not sure if this image will work, but...

It's a kit, you can still buy them so the price hasn't gone crazy like the big Millennium Falcon and Imperial Star Destroyer kits have.

That Sopwith is cool. How big is it?

Awesome build. I have the smaller version of that set and most of the architecture series. My largest set is the Tower Bridge at 4300 pieces so I know how intimidating it is when you first pull everything out.

I'm thinking about picking up a used copy of this set to try building my own creation based on the Clone Wars Venator.

That is too cool.....

I play a MMORPG "internet spaceships" game called EVE Online. Sadly on December 20th, 2012 LEGO decided that a ship from the game did not meet certain business model criteria and thus will not be slated for production...

Still, it is very nice and thought you might like to see it even though it's not Star Wars per se.

This ship is called a "Rifter." It is a light, fast, frigate.


Ingame pic of the real thing:

I'm not really in to the star wars ones but I do like this b wing. Can't justify the price for it though.

I like the technic ones. I rarely get sets now and I had to sell a few recently too. The best one I still have is the F1 car (8386). I can't link to it but you should also check out the off-topic lego thread too.

I have a bunch of the Star Wars Lego stuff, but I could never bring myself to buy the mondo 4-ft long kit.

I do have two of the Ultimate Collector Series ones, the X-wing and Tie Interceptor (7181 and 7191). Actually, that reminds me - I need to go download the directions for the Tie Interceptor - the box got destroyed at some point, so now I just have a couple big zip-lock bags filled with partially assembled parts. It's been a while since I've seen any of the Ultimate kits in a store, so I didn't even know there was a B-wing - that's pretty damn cool looking.

Built a few more things recently. Also working on an AT-AT, but waiting for a few parts to come that were not included with the kit. Need more shelf space.
