    Is there supposed to be a link? If so I'm not seeing it but I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about. And if so I'd love to be your 6 year old getting that damn thing.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    I neglected to mention in the article that there is apparently "slight wear" from being shipped to the various conventions. Unless the thing is trashed, I doubt anybody will give a flying R2.

    These large models may be modular but the bricks are usually glued together and it probably has some type of rebar inside the structure for added stability.

    Nice display piece but if I was going to drop several grand on LEGO I'd prefer unglued bricks.

    This looks amazing and I'm glad it's going to charity and everything, I only wish i had the money to blow on it. I would love to have one of these.

    No, it ships fully built, only the floor stand needs assembly (they say they include all tools and a manual to build the stand). It's a massive crate which is why the shipping cost that LEGO is footing is estimated at $2,000, they've already shipped it in the crate a few times and know what it takes to get going - they say in the auction that uncrating will require 4 people!!! It's built on a big metal spine which would make disassembly very difficult, but makes display easier since the metal spine carries the weight either from the floor stand OR from being hung (it has 2 optional hanging points at the top).

    Merlin's beard! This thing is up to $24 grand already and there are still 8 days left in the auction. It's astounding that Habitat will likely be able to build a nice home from the proceeds of an 8' LEGO ship.

    At 35,000 pieces, not including the custom metal spine or the stand, that works out to $3,500 in Lego pieces, plus 450 hours of design and assembly time, so that's a pretty cool donation Lego is willing to make as well. It's too bad there's so many low-feedback bidders already though, sounds like a lot of scammers, yet still there are real-looking bidders above the $20k range too.
