This will be the longest Star Wars Lego model at 50 inches, and it takes 3,152 bricks and pieces to put together.

That's too easy for Mikey. 3,152 bricks, why, that won't even take him an afternoon.

No, don't have it but I really want it. Bit of reference: my Millennium falcon set has 5,300 pieces. It took me 30 hours to assemble.

I like this kind of stuff. Doing something like this would require thousands of dollars in Legos.

that is pretty awesome.
Once you've taken the photo, you can re-purpose some of the pieces and sell the rest though. Then make another cool setup.

That pancake robot is awesome! Daniel is actually making me pancakes right now, but I'll go tell him he's been replaced :-P

Firefly, yes. Lots of good quotes from that short-lived series. I'll be in my bunk.
