It seemed there was probably sufficient interest in this, so will be posting Lego pr0n along the way. By virtue of being the biggest set Lego has ever produced this will obviously be the biggest build I've done, though by quite some margin. Nothing even in the ball park - I have the Tumbler (76023) and Technic Silver Champion (8458), both in the 1500-2000 pieces range, both put together across a few sessions of a couple hours at a time. "I" have a Disney Castle as well (71040) which at over 4000 pieces is in mega-set territory, but that's still boxed and in hiding waiting for a Christmas or birthday once my daughter is old enough for it (I have been positively aching to build it though). When I was a kid, amongst all the sets I had, the "big one" was this 395 pieces can't be right... I sure felt like it was a huge set at the time I'm expecting this to take at least a month on account of A) taking my time over it and B) enlisting my daughter to help with most of it, limiting time to work on it during the week. So without further ado, on to the pics! Large box is large... and heavy. Do not put on shelf until 1st October... I almost certainly won't be. So very exciting opening this box up, as giddy as a schoolgirl. Human child, and my helper, for scale. Also as giddy as a shcoolgirl (mainly about the seeing Chewbacca on the box), on account of being an actual schoolgirl. Thoughts of flipping it on ebay and making a few hundred quid profit dashed with one fell snip Some pages. Lots of concept art and history before the instruction book tome gets down to business All of the stickers for the whole set. This is good news. Four separate internal boxes, nice touch on the artwork. Even nicer touch... So you might be wondering what 7500 pieces of Lego looks like. The rug is 4x7', for scale. I also found another two bags wedged in the bottom of one of the boxes that aren't pictured - 65 in total. And that's instalment number one ladies and gents. Now to actually start putting it together!
