    This brings back memories of my first job I got just to pay for a $35 Lego robot. Robots are neat.

    "Do they have ready made ones?"

    Why the hell do you want a ready made one?
    The reason people buy LEGOs is to build with them.

    they need to put all the man-hours they put into LEGO Star Wars, and concentrate it on Lego Transformers...That would be sweet. I mean, they have Lego Star Wars, they have Star Wars Transformers....Lego Transformers is just next in line...

    And I forgot to say what I wanted to say because I have Attention Defic...anyways

    Anyone else here ever play with legos for too long and get the tips of their fingers all sore from pushing too many bircks together? Imagine that guy`s fingers...In 25 hours eh....and he didn`t change clothes until the end, when it was almost finished, and he came back pantless... Odd.

    He probably came after seeing it was almost done, heck if I am going to pay 700$ for Legos, it better bring me sexual satisfaction

    i would have laughed so hard if his kid came in and accidently knocked it over when it was almost done and it shattered to pieces, then for the next 5 time lapsed minutes its just the dad weeping over the broken falcon...

    "good job son! we built it!"

    *kid picks up a single lego on the ground*

    "daddy what`s this???"

    "don`t worry about that son"

    *dad picks up falcon and it all falls apart*

    kid goes "do we worry about it now????"

    I must have that...and the AT-AT. I love those things. I`m working on the Imperial Troop Transport (or whatever the big brown thing that carries all the robots is. I can`t remember). Yes, I love Lego Star Wars, but I`m not a major Star Wars geek who freaks about anyting Star Wars.

    Im going to buy a bigassed lego set in the next week and do this. I grew up playing with legos. There was nothing better in the world than recreating the scene in your favorite cartoon show episode or something.

    Bionicles FTW!

    Tho I will say the video could have been a LOT shorter.

    BTW just about every damn combat vehicle in Star Wars, though fun to look at, is realistically unsound. Armored Troop Transports with legs? Phhtt...

    went to the lego site to look at the price, its $499, then it had a link to other products, including: http://shop.lego.com/Product/?p=10143

    its the death star II, you know, the half completed one that got blown up in episode 6, but what i couldnt find was death star I...why would i want part of a thing....i can make the death star II out of the death star I, but i cant make the first death star if you dotn give me all the pieces...

    also, i liked the lego sets where you could make 3 or 4 different things with the lego`s, whats the point of a lego set if once you put it together it just becomes a normal toy, why pay extra to put together the toy the manufacturer was too lazy to do himself? now the ones that could be made into 3 or 4 different things allowed some imagination..


    sorry for the rambling, A.D.D. is a bitch.

    i have to agree with dangerryan on most parts...

    john williams is different than gustav holst in the sole reason that john williams uses too much trumpet. some of his lesser known stuff STILL uses too much trumpet. the only people who like john williams stuff that i know are A) star wars geeks, or B) jazz players (mainly trumpets and trombone players).

    I love Star Wars, and I love Legos, but damn. $300 for a toy you`ll put together, then sit on a shelf.

    BTW, John Williams has said numerous times in interviews that Holst is one of his influences. Naturally, you`ll incorporate some of your influence into your own work. He just happens to have used a lot. :)
