LEGO Death Star

So I am finally sitting down and building the LEGO Death Star set. I believe I own 4 of these sets already, all unopened. But I found a nice deal on a set from another collector, one that is already opened, so it gives me an excuse to finally build it.

This set has been out for YEARS, and the box art is still two or three generations ago in terms of LEGO Star Wars packaging design:

The manual is MASSIVE:

It comes with loads of minifigs. If LEGO were to release this set today, it would either be much more expensive or contain many fewer minifigs. Some of these are now older designs, but a nice collection overall:

The trash compactor monster! Well done LEGO.

Chewie and the little droid:

The build starts off simply enough:

And builds…

And builds… It just gets bigger and bigger…

Okay, another update on my progress soon!
