    1. That is awesome. I love all the Star Wars stuff, and I'm stoked to see Indiana Jones sets.
    2. I did some design work with Lego once. Those guys are on the ball and fun to work with.

    My GF buys me LEGO every time she goes to Tesco. It's like the greatest thing ever. Yes, I am 19. :D

    Oh, and do we recognize anything from a different Lucas universe in the graphic hanging above the ark? :D

    Now that's just too cool. My son is another year or two away from being old enough for this kind of LEGO. Can't wait...

    Same. Too many things to do. I would feel the same way while assembling LEGOs, or wasting all my time posting on the internet.

    Question. What to do with them after they are constructed. My son has so many lego star wars items that it is beginning to clutter. The simple ones you can break down - others like a star destroyer become very complicated without the little numbered bags. Thoughts on what to do afterwards? My problem is that they are too fragile for a kid to play with without falling apart - perhaps some krazy glue...hmmm;)

    You would be surprised about how relaxing assembling LEGO is. I spent a great evening with the Millennium Falcon, and I am 27 now. :p

    It's the game of it I'm looking forward to... (Yes, there is going to be a LEGO Indiana Jones video game)

    Wow, these are awesome. I have a Lego X-Wing standing around I just had to buy. I often build my own Lego Star Wars stuff when I was 6-10 years old, and when I saw it I thought "damn why didn't they have this when I was a kid". :)

    Btw, I once made a set of Lego icons for OS X, here is a link if anyone is interested: http://www.nbfactory.cc/illustration/
    Just scroll down a little. I have made them very reduced so they work in small sizes, and each of my hard drives is a different colored Lego brick.

    Looks nice. Too bad they probably won't make a Game Cube version since I don't own and cannot afford a new system.

    Isn't the point behind LEGOs is to build the thing once and then tear it all apart and use your imagination to make something new?

    I agree with the lego that I used when I was a kid - do that with a large set and mix in the general population and you will never be able to rebuild it again...the sets (larger ones) do require the directions and all the parts that sometimes you are like why am I adding all these tiny parts until the step is complete and it all makes sense...mixing the ones and the twos and other parts in general lego population is a kiss goodbye to that death star or star destroyer...

    Ah, the great Lego Paradox... When I was a kid it didn't matter. As an adult, the collector's nerd impulse kicked in and I keep the parts for the sets I have in their original boxes.

    As for what to do with all the Lego sets once assembled: I think the only rational answer is to dedicate a room in your house completely to the building, storage, and display of Lego sets. I'll get there some day... :p
