    Yeah, it seems the botanical collection was a big hit. I was waiting on mine until I heard about a new contract at work, but now it seems I might not even be able to get one of that happens. Glad they’re popular, but I want them!

    I saw them at Target and realized I really, REALLY shouldn't pass on getting the one I wanted.

    I wish I had your foresight. And your bonsai tree.

    Same! I didn't get the spring lantern festival, but that's okay!

    Also, remember that ice skating rink I talked about maybe getting for mom last month? Yeah, this purchase qualified and it seems they still have some!

    Thank you for the ping. I am going to be good and pass on it since I need the space for other 2021 sets. Hahahahaha.

    these are always kinda neat

    although I wonder how long this process takes

    like it seems like good old fashioned stop motion

    so someone has to place a brick, retreat out of frame, take a photo, and then put down another brick

    which has gotta inflate the build times on sets this big by a lot!

    Just put the camera on at 1fps and remove your hands from the frame after every brick. Then edit out all the frames that show your hands with post-processing software. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a tool to run in After Effects that can do this semi-automatically. Still takes extra time, dedication and familiarity with film-making, but I can kind of see how it'd work. This guy though, he makes it look easy, I'm well impressed.

    You know what? That's the first build video in a long time I haven't watched for a set i'm anticipating.

    I want to be surprised by its build.

    Aw dangit, just watched this and now I'm even more intrigued by this set. It really isn't that huge... Guess it'll go on my watchlist and maybe eventually picked up.

    If someone handed me like $20,000 and said I could only spend it on Lego, I think it's amazing how quick and easy it would be to come up with a $20k shopping list.

    Really liking the Razorcrest model and I'm kiiiiinda considering spending some of the extra cash from doing constant overtime over the past couple weeks on a lighting kit. Lightmybricks seems to be popular, but a lot of people seem to think they're overpriced and not worth the premium and they like other brands. Thoughts? Ease of Installation is a big factor to me, if that comes into it.

    also I'm looking at listings of the the bigass collector's edition Slave-1 on ebay and oh no I do think I might be in a rabbithole

    I'd be curious to hear your experience if you go for it. I'm tempted too.

    I haven't looked at other kits, but Light My Bricks do seem slightly pricey but have real good instructions on their site for every kit. I'd check any kit you plan on buying (from wherever) for that.

    This is in general, not Razorcrest specific.

    Stay strong. The rumors are that a Slave 1 might be coming out this year. It probably won't be a UCS one, but still a Slave 1.

    I'd totally buy a UCS AT-AT. I've got the Star Destroyer on my desk now and the Falcon ready to be built once I figure out a home for it.

    The rumor mill is that we will get a Slave 1 this year. It's going to be in the smaller, more playable scale like the newest X-Wing and TIE Fighter.

    Ahhh, that would make sense. Then poor @Raiden333 is going to still be tempted to buy the big one from eBay. lol

    I love how the $799.99 one went from Death Star to AT-AT. With everyone's luck it'll be a playset like the Cantina since people were hoping for the Shuttle. I would love it to be an AT-AT, but it makes no sense to me when they have the current one out right now.

    Fake Edit: Maybe an Echo Base playset?

    At $800 that AT-AT better be perfectly 1 to 1 in scale with the minifigures. Also possibly come with a snowspeeder to crush.

    I've never bought anything from lego during the VIP exclusive period.

    Is it normal for it to take a few days to ship? The payment is pending on my statement, but I haven't received any news about it actually heading my way. Granted I used the free shipping method...

    Ah, okay. Mine is listed as "in warehouse." Which means it is being processed. At least it's not gonna do anything evil like go on backorder status for me or something.

    Made a neat SEC!

    Better Vulture wings! They look super cool, but there's a lot of weight on some small 1x1 clip plates, the whole thing feels pretty floppy, especially compared to the solid brick of the original. Looks cool tho!

    Also built a better Ghost Rider bike, but ended up with the wrong tyre size, so no pics yet.

    Stopped by the Lego store and picked up the Ninjago garden set. Asked about the bonsai tree and the clerk said that it was their most popular set at the moment and they sell out as soon as they get new ones in. He also said they should be getting more in on a steady basis since Lego has kicked up production of it.
