A Lego Normandy sure is impressive, but will it pass the test of time... or even a moderate bumping? Why take the chance when you could get a metal-plated version instead, one that stands a reasonably better chance of surviving the fictional rigours of space in Mass Effect (or errant elbow)?
This extremely limited edition, 17.14cm long replica is being produced in a single batch of 300 by Dark Horse Comics for this year's San Diego Comic-Con, which sadly puts it out of reach for most Asia-Pacific folk. Though I'd argue the antique silver version, which is readily available (1500 units), is just as nice-looking — and shinier.
True, the silver version is the SR-2, rather than the SR-1, so fans of the original ship will remain unsatisfied, but then, that's what eBay is for.
