If you're a fan of Lego and Star Wars, this is a MUST. The suggested build time of this 3,152 piece monster is around 10 hours, but it will take you much longer. To me, this is a good thing because in life, as is all things I've come to learn, its the journey that is the most fun, not the destination. This 49\" behemoth proudly sits amongst my collection and I enjoy looking at it everyday. It is a lot more complicated than the standard Lego builds, but as you piece it together you will see the simplicity in its major components. The price is steep, but then again, you truly get what you pay for.
Measures over 12" (31 cm) high and 7" (18 cm) wide!

THE MOST AWESOME BIRTHDAY GIFT IDEA EVER!!!
I, along with a few other friends, all chipped in on this item as a birthday present for a mutual friend. The look on his face when he saw it made it worth every penny spent!! We spent that afternoon and some of the following morning putting it together. Other than a few weak spots any lego has, it was a really sturdy piece. I would HIGHLY recommend this if you are the avid star wars lego collector
When I ordered this product and had it delivered to the store I did not expect to receive a box in such horrible condition. When I went to pick it up I waited at least ten minutes before I even spoke to anyone. At the counter there is a touch screen notifying customers to press it to alert customer service. I pressed it several times before anyone appeared, and the person who did show up said they could not help me because they were done for the day. She said she would find someone to help me on her way out. I waited another ten minutes before a young man and woman finally showed up. I presented them with my order information and they went to the back to retrieve my package. When they finally showed up I couldn't believe the condition of the box. It appears it was shipped as is, not inside another box, and took quite a beating on the way. I've attached pics showing the package. The only reason I accepted it was because it was for my 12 year old nephew's birthday the next day and I didn't have time to refuse the package and wait for another one. Also, I know that Lego has excellent customer service and would replace any missing pieces. As you can see the box was open and taped up. Imagine being a 12 year old boy and opening this present on your birthday! Two of the bags inside the box were open and we had to contact Lego in order to request the 17 missing pieces, which they happily replaced. I won't be ordering from WalMart again. The product itself is great, but my experience with Walmart left much to be desired.
Such a wonderful depiction of an easier time! Amazing model, I must say. Walmart had sent me an email that promoted a sale price that had ended. After a small rally of emails, they agreed to honor the sale price and so I bought several sets. The site-to-store is great because you don't have to worry about being home when Fed-Ex delivers. And shipping site-to-store...............is free. Yay! So...A+++++++++++ Wally! Another happy customer! :)
