    Don't those things cost like a gajillion dollars each? I'd love to have them, but they're a bit too much for me to afford.

    Unfortuantly yes, the X-Wing was around the $200 mark, special discount if the box is damaged as it was in my case, and the Tie Interceptor was $150 I think, again damaged box discount for me. Only a matter of 10% but better than nothing in my books.

    However, it is totally worth it once you put them together <drools>. Now they are that price due to the fact each kit has a zillion pieces in it, enough to keep you occupied for a day or two while you build them.

    Of course it comes down to how much you want them, I admit I wanted them pretty bad so I was prepared to pay the price, the thing is are you?

    Not really. Space is a big consideration in my hole, and most of it is taken up by toy soldiers.

    I'm sure they're cheaper in NZ! And if you want to get into the SW Lego make sure you get the first series of them first, cause they have stopped producing them and I read in a collecting mag the other day that the prices have gone up in the States as they are now considered collector items.

    I've got the X-wing, but I'd love to get the Interceptor as well. Too bad there's things like rent and electricity I have to pay for first. :(

    I don't. I have a platoon sized formation of Dragon 12" figures, at least half of which go for big bucks on the secondary market, and I have opened every last one of them, and kitbashed and customised most of them.

    I would think we all do in some fashion or other, meaning taking the toy out of the box as it were.

    well, you know you can buy a full sized x-wing for US$50,000. That's pretty awesome. I want one for x-mas. :D

    I prefer to think big and deadly - I want a Death Star, but first I'll put a grill across that exhaust shaft.
