    Just finished my Boba fett Slave One model. Guess I know what I'll be picking up next.

    I'm throwing my money at the screen but nothing is happening why is it not here in my house?

      You're obviously not throwing enough money. That thing is expensive.

    Does that mean they are not gonna make the stupidly large one?

    Microfigures? How long before someone replicates this at minifig scale? That thing would be huge!

      Here's a render of one - 22,000 pieces

    God, I am dreading what it will be in AUD. Bet it be over $450AUD

      Closer to $550

      The Simpsons house is $200USD and retails in Australia for $400. So $500-$550 sounds about right for this thing.

    It's a shame though, looking at this one and the one on Lego Ideas https://ideas.lego.com/projects/63951, the lego idea's one look extremely detailed, then you see this one and this well, now that just looks crap.

    Non-the-less, I'd still by the top one, looks pretty awesome.

      That does look great, but 10x the blocks probably means 10x the price!

        I re-read it and they ask the guy to make a smaller size and he got it down to 6,000 blocks.

    I just finished building my Lego Death Star. I never had any interest in Marvel Shield but this could end up in my collection

    I'd rather put my money towards the Hot Toys model.
