I've never been interested in LEGO's UCS line since I only collect the Minifig sets, but this one is designed to be in scale with Minifigs! My all-time favorite Star Wars ship, finally done to proper scale! Over 5000 pieces!! $500 price point!! Thank God for Income Tax refund checks!!! smile.gif

Heh, I've got the Collector's Edition, or whatever, version of the Imperial Star Destroyer. Is it really larger than that? Or is it the largest model in Minifigure scale\/

It's not quite as long as the UCS ISD (just over 3 feet long), but it's considered the biggest LEGO model because of the number of parts used. Until this, the UCS Death Star was the largest with 3449 pieces.

I've already got mine preordered. It's due to ship the first week of October. It'll probably take me a week or so to build the damn thing, but I'll be certain to post some pics when I'm finished. smile.gif

$500? At least they include free shipping. wink.gif

Really looking forward to your pics MV. I'd like to request a pre-build shot - all the bags and bags of bricks on the floor/table would be crazy to see! biggrin.gif

Hey guys, I just stumbled onto this set, and man do I want it! I have been wanting to try and build something like this for quite some time, but never wanted to search for all the right pieces I would need. Now I don't have to, and I cannot wait to get my hands on this beautiful set. Priced at $140, I don't think it is that bad considering you get over 2000 pieces.
what do you guys think? I hope I am not the only one blown away with this set, and I've read if this does well, others are planned, which will easily link to the corners of this one.

That's pretty sweet! and not that bad considering how pricey the licensed lego stuff can be.

I wonder how easy it would be to upscale it to minimates?

For 2000 bricks, $149 is a pretty good price and it looks like a great set.

It'd be tough. I've got lots of LEGO here - two bins full - and they're great, but they're all LEGO fig scale. Windows look odd, doors are just plain funny and chairs don't have a chance of fitting. Everything needs to be reworked to fit 'mates.
