Take a look at this baby!

LEGO Death Star!!! (http://shop.lego.com/product.asp?p=10143&cn=8&d=5&t=3)

Makes you wanna drool, doesn't it?

Mine arrived in the post this morning! :D

26-08-2005, 20:03
Oh, me wants one!(But where do I get all that money to buy it? I guess I'd better scratch-build it out of my gazillion-and-one other sets...)

Although that set would include a lot of pieces, seeing it is a shape repeating itself over and over, it shouldn't take that long to build, a day or two would do;)

I have made some of my terrain from legos...i glued them together, and then primed the terrain pieces, and then painted them with textured paint. They actually look great, i was surprised. I might make a large ship and then paint it for the hell of it.

Very nice though...but I could never justify spending £229.99 on it though. If i had that money, I'd just save up a little bit more and just buy a FW Warhound instead.

26-08-2005, 22:35
I think it looks . . .lame.
I like the Serenity--that's truly creative, however the Death Star is just a bunch of gray bits with a laser attached. Maybe if it looked less like something I could make out of spare bits sprayed gray I would be stoked.

Oh, and someone should probably change the title of the thread.

Cade

Build update:
4 hours in and I've only just finished building the stand! It's not that tough to put together, it's just trying to find the part you need amongst the other 3,500 that takes the time!
This is even when I've sorted the bits by size into 6 GW regiment boxes.

It looks as if this is going to be easier than the Star Destroyer.......this is, after all, just a big round ball.
Man, that Star Destroyer is an absolute bitch to put together!

Don't have any star wars lego... those legos arrived after my lego time, so to speak. I have to huge boxes filled with all kinds of other lego stuff, which must have costed a fortune all added up...

Arrgh. I always was a very decent lego builder when I was 10 or so, but to recreate that star destroyer would be a hell.

Hmmm......scratch-building a 2 1/2 foot model from pictures and memory....

Nah.....I think I'll pass. :D

Build update: one more full day of construction and the entire lower half of the bodywork is done, as well as half of the top.
Just the other half of the top and the armoured plating to go! w00t!

34 man hours? What took you so long? I did it in around 10 – 11 hours… :D

As for the Death Star – having seen pictures of one being built, I’m rather disappointed. At the very least, the ISD, despite its rather flimsy construction, had some interesting features. The IDS just seem, well, bland…
I might buy one at some point in time – but it just doesn’t say “buy me” the way the ISD did…

Wiseman

http://www.brickcommander.com/Nebulon-B5.jpg <--- technically speaking that nebulon b is very very close to the correct scale compared to that Star Destroyer (a nebulon being about 5.33 [recurring] times smaller than a Star Destroyer [i went googling to check on it, ISD is 1600m long and the Nebulon B is 300m long])

But do you have any of a Mon Calamari Cruiser? :D

im not sure if a Mon calamari cruiser is possible...the shape is far too Organic with all the curves, it'd take a lot of pieces just to bring those out. But I suppose you could just get a Star Destroyer change the bridge and add a few bits on to the hull and it'd be a pretty accurate representation.

edit: Cloud City, something on a much larger scale to this then:

Not to mention there are different types of calamari cruisers. It would be possible, but I bet the calamari cruiser would be more difficult to put together as an ISD. Also remember the ISD (1600m) is larger as a calamari cruiser (1200m).

Wiseman

The SSD on the ISD scale would be about 3.7m (about 15 feet) long.... :D

The Death Star would be about 46m in diameter (184 feet)..... :eek:

Assuming a diameter of 100 km (which was the first death star if I remember correctly; the second one was slightly larger).

Wiseman
31-08-2005, 10:13
46m? whats ya point they should still make it

Scythe
31-08-2005, 10:26
Doing some further maths on the ISD scale death star, it turns out that the volume is 354000 times the volume of the death star available to buy for €329.99. Assuming a linear increase in lego stones (and costs) this would mean the 46m death star would cost about €115.000.000,-; still interested? ;)

Furthermore, assuming the 10 hours (quite fast acctually) building time of the 'small' death star, this means a 3.540.000 hours of building time on the larger death star, again assuming a linear increase in lego stones. Which equals about 400 years of building time for a single person.... :p

yes, I have to much time on my hands.... :D

The small Sand Skiff from Jedi. Not sure if they did the Sail Barge though.

I've just scared myself by counting the number of those I've bought. :D Although I wasn't aware they'd done a Tie-In model.

Blockade Runner, ISD and Death Star aren't to scale with the others (or each other for that matter), and the Speeder Bike set actually had 2 bikes, 2 Scout Troopers, Endor Luke and a tree, whilst the Y-Wing and Vader's Tie Fighter were originally in a set together.
Also, some of the models have been re-released, most notably the X-Wing, Snowspeeder, Vader's Tie (complete with Vader with light up light saber) and the Falcon.
There's also a couple of large-scale kits.

But I'd really have liked them to do box sets of figures, especially Storm Troopers. :D

Edit:
Forgot Luke's T-16 Skyhopper, and the Imperial Shuttle kit.

Always willing to help a mod. :D

It's about the size of two computer keyboards back to back, and it's a fairly complex build.

IMO, I'd say it's probably worth the money.

That looks awsome. Lego has been getting easier and easier every year. I remember back when i was just a Lad and you had to build everything on the legos. Like in order to get a sloping side you had yo use smooth pieces. They made everything to easy now for them Stupid little kids.

Despite the fact I managed to justify a baneblade bought on a paper round, I fail to see why?
I mean really, How much?
Or is it just me?

When:

a) all your bills are paid and you have money for the next 6-12 months
b) you have a steady source of income with no foreseeable interuption
c) you *can*

...why not?

Damn right she would, I'd be forbidden Pub rights for ages if I bought that.

The Venerator is a bajillion times more exciting than that puny basketball-sized Death Star II. Even on it's own it's not really impressive.

Nearly $10,000 for the Star Destroyer... it's great that it's LEGO & Lucas backed and that it's shipped for free as well as going to charity. That's a pretty awesome thing to do.

It's a shame Eric couldn't contact the "designers" of the StarDeuce and so it's not accurate; no dorsal hangar and no planetary landing legs. Oh well.

I think this is the kind of thing a game store, large gamer club, or even a toy store company would buy. I doubt many Star Wars fans have a spare ten large to throw away and an extra 9'×5' of floorspace they don't want. Hmm, pay for college or buy a Lego kit...

Or a museum for that matter. Especially a Sci-Fi one of course.

edit: got a few pictures off google of it where it was before It was put on ebay, with people standing round it (so you can get a sense of scale):

Should've just watched the clone wars series... then you could easily see that the entire front section folds out to allow the hanger bay to launch fighters...

Wow. Legos are really freaking expensive all of a sudden. What happened there? I don't think I'd ever buy this: What a waste that looks like.

Well, Lego has always been expensive. Add to that the one-of-a-kind nature of this model…

There’ll always be people willing to pay big money for unique stuff. I’ve seen rare / unreleased GW figs go for $400 and more. Crazy? Yes, but to be honest – if I had that kind of money I’d buy this ship. Alas, I’m but a poor student, and having that kind of money is just a distant dream…

Well, most people here will start comparing lego prices with gw prices. Add to that the time it was since most people last bought legos, it is understandable most people regard lego as not-so expensive.
