Would you pay $400 to recreate Darth Vader’s Super Star Destroyer Executor


First of all, it’s called the Super Star Destroyer Executor? For real? Anyway, on September 1st LEGO is releasing a 3,152 brick, 50-inch, $400 set that lets you create Darth Vader’s personal spaceship in your own home.

Also, of interesting Minneapolis Lego note: The Guthrie Theater made out of LEGOs.
