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

    I think it took him like 7 hours to build it.

    It is currently the centrepiece in his living room.

    I was JUST trying to remember the name of the even bigger one. I think I saw a picture of it in a Star Wars RP book once. Like ten times the size of a Super Star Destroyer.

    I think it showed up in the comic series that followed the story line immediately after Return of the Jedi. I remember seeing it surrounded by tiny Star Destroyers and being like 'woah'.

    Quote Wikipedia:

    "The power of the Eclipse-class' superlaser as described is self-contradictory. It has been described as 2/3rds the power of the Death Star's prime weapon. Visual analysis of Alderaan's destruction in ANH suggested the Death Star superlaser inserted at least a million times more energy than the minimum for permanently breaking up a planet. Therefore a weapon with "2/3rds the power" would be more than sufficient to irrevocably shatter a planet, yet it was also stated that the Eclipse's superlaser was not powerful enough to destroy a planet. There is some speculation as to whether the 2/3rds number refers to the magnitude of the energy release as opposed to the total value; this would put the main weapon below the threshold necessary to destroy a planet. Another possibility, as the Death Star's superlaser consisted of eight (or, in the Death Star II, nine) individual beams which combined into a single larger beam after firing, is that the Eclipse-class' superlaser had 2/3rds the power of one of the Death Star superlaser's component beams."


    Oh god the controversy.

    For the record:
    1. The Eclipse is only a little better than twice the size of a Super Star Destroyer (17.5 km vs. 8 km).
    2. It appeared in the comic series Dark Empire, Dark Empire II, and Empire's End.
    3. There were two of them (the first one got blown up, so they just fucking made another one).
    4. At least 70% of the fun of Legos is crashing the ships and putting them back together, not just setting them on your shelf and never doing anything with them again.

    The comics tended to be kinda bad about that, just throwing out over-the-top, DragonBall-Z-esque, who-can-think-of-a-bigger-number type shit.

    On a related note, Kevin J. Anderson, I'm pretty sure, has some kind of medical condition that requires him to put a superweapon in every Star Wars book he writes.

    I was never really satisfied with how the second one came into being. It almost seemed like they just came up with two ways to destroy it, so the editor was all "Okay, since you've both been so good, we'll use both your ideas."
