Lego Star Destroyer - Bitch Complete NSF56K

So...I got one of these bad boys for 100 bucks or so at Target. It was just too enticing. It is ~1400 pieces of Lego badassity. It looks to be about 2 ft long and 10-12 inches high. Not only is it a sweet ship, but you can open it up and it is like a playset.

Construction took about 10-11 hours. You need a solid surface. A desk is ideal. I tried to build on carpet for a while, but it makes it tougher.

I took pictures at each major stage of construction, here they are...

So...has anyone built the Lego Death Star II? I find it intriguing...

    So are you going to buy a Lego A-Wing set and crash it into the control tower?

    It took so long. I went D: when I dropped bags of Lego pieces onto my desk. Thank god it was so well organized. I couldn't have done it with their old school type shit. Even so, oh my back and shoulders ache from construction work.

    I'm still trying to find an inexpensively-priced copy of it somewhere. Once I do, though, I'll let you know how building it goes.

    You know why they have all the little internal components, right? So it looks cooler when you crash them into other lego figures.

    I tried to read one on lightsabers once, but apparently people developed at-length articles about how the fuck they work, and combat styles, and aaaaaaargh.

    No.

    An A-wing crashed into the control tower of a Star-Destroyer, causing it to fly unguided into a super-star destroyer.

    I'm pretty sure that's how it went down.

    Break it. Then tell us how long it takes for him to put it back together. I must know this!
