Take 10 guys a random, but only one who would pay that much for a Lego Death Star set.

Put 'em in a line-up.

Isn't the Death Star like supposed to be the size of the moon or something? This looks more like the Death Star shaped house you find in the suburbs.

"The first Death Star has a crew of 265,675, as well as 52,276 gunners, 607,360 troops, 30,984 stormtroopers, 42,782 ship support staff, and 180,216 pilots and support crew. Its hangars contain assault shuttles, blastboats, Strike cruisers, land vehicles, support ships, and 7,293 TIE fighters. It is also protected by 10,000 turbolaser batteries, 2,600 ion cannons, and at least 768 tractor beam projectors. Various sources state the first Death Star has a diameter between 120 and 160 kilometers [75-100 miles]."

Well you see, dgaicun, hasbro intended to make a scale version. But when it was over 40 miles long and gained its own orbit, the U.S. Military shot it down claiming it was a weapon of mass destruction. Hasbro TRIED to explain that it was just a toy, but everyone scoffed as the lego laser beam was focused on Earth. After they blew it up and all of the pentagon was congratulating themselves, Hasbro came up with this idea. It was all over the news, how could you have missed it?! There were lego pieces everywhere, and George Lucas was even blacklisted!!

Lego also has a Death Star II set which has about the same number of pieces (3400 vs 3800), but it costs half as much.

It's more of a scale version thing, with 30ish floor levels. It's also about twice as tall.
