Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

$399 USD

And thus my dreams were crushed by a giant fucking robot hand that hurled them into a grinder and ground them beyond recognition.

Yeah, I saw it first on Eurobricks about a week ago. But if you go to Brothers-Brick then there's actually a Youtube video of it with people trying out all the movable parts. It's pretty neat. There's a central elevator than can go up and down by a string a pulley, the giant laser can tilt around, the room with the brown walls at the bottom can actually fold its walls in, and the two laser turrets can turn at the same time. There's a lot of neat details and tons of minifigs that go with it. It's really pricy of course cause it's not only playable but a collectors piece, especially because of all those minifigs. Seriously, have you ever tried looking up the price of a Jango Fett on Bricklink? Ridiculous. But you gotta admit...it's pretty sweet. Really inspirational if you want to try building your own open interior of a ship. In fact what I would do is not by the set, but try to just buy the instructions and make my own version with my own collection.

I know what I can get for 400 bucks but man 25 minifigs, has lego ever done this. But 500 (499 canadian) is a little much. Just imagine putting it together. I wouldnt just because it would take like a day.
but look at it this way if each piece took you one second to place it would take:
3 803 / 60 = 63.3833333
One hour...well thats not that bad. :oops:

Meh if only I had money or very easily persuaded parents.

Meh, I don't like it too much. It's possible to make your own, and if you had a lot of grey pieces it could be as big or as small as you wanted (And not have to spend FOUR HUNDRED FRIKIN DOLLARS).

[rant]Just imagine. Think about it. 400$. A Lego play set. Play set. 400$. The more you think about it, the more absurd it seems. Maybe if this was a bigger, more awesome lego set 400$ would seem OK, but this? No, definitely not for me. Think of all the other great things you could get/do with/for 400$. You could buy smaller, better Lego sets. You could get lots of candy. You could get awesome electronics. You could get an electric scooter, and still have money left over, instead of this. You could get a M1911. You could invest it towards college. Anyway, I don't know how lego could think people would be spending 400$ on this Lego set. I don't like it. [/rant]
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

Obviously the price tag is so everyone CAN'T have one. That's what makes it more special. A deathstar is a freakin deathstar. It shouldn't be in the hands of commoners.
