"Admiral, I want that ship, not excuses"

When you're talking about Star Destroyers there's the Imperial II class and then there's everybody else. But when you're talking Lego Star Destroyers there's the Venator Class and then there's nobody even close. Uber nerd iomedes has built the most incredible lego Star Destroyer I've ever seen. It's 8 feet long and weighs over 180 pounds. It was built using 43,000 pieces, none of which are glued or screwed together (a common practice when mega-legoing).

This thing is pretty amazing. The size of it is obviously impressive, but the detail in the engines and the gunner ports is really incredible. I can't even imagine taking on a project like this. I wouldn't even know where to start. Once you need to use autocad to put together your lego space ships I'm out.

In fact we picked my kid up a bucket of duplo blocks this last weekend at a garage sale. I built a pretty sweet looking crow out of them. That's where my lego prowess starts and ends.

It's like IKEA furniture, you build it inside a small room then realize you can't get it out of the room without breaking it.
