The $400 Star Wars LEGO Death Star

Gizmodo has high-res photos of the upcoming Death Star from LEGO's Star Wars collection. With almost four thousand pieces and setting your wallet back $400, this station is now the ultimate power in the universe (or at least your living room floor, which is the only place big enough to build this technological terror)...It comes with a staggering 25 minifigs and droids, and re-creates 14 scenes from the original Star Wars trilogy.

And I must be a very good boy between now and Christmas, because if I tried to bring this thing into the house on my own Lisa would kill me.

EDIT 9:30 p.m. EST: Lisa took one look at that picture, and promptly said "No!"

I suppose she's right. We've got enough Star Wars LEGO models around the place anyway. At least I've got the Millennium Falcon and AT-AT Walker, not to mention Slave I: what more could a guy need? :-P

Heh. I showed this to my original-trilogy-only Lego collecting roommate earlier this week, and he just sighed with frustration and said, "But...but...I still have to fork out $500 for that monstrous Millennium Falcon..."

I'd be extra-special good to Santa Lisa for the rest of the year if I were you, broheim! :)
