Bandai announced at the 2014 Tokyo Toy Fair that they had received the license for Star Wars models. Among their displays was a ~3 foot long Imperial Star Destroyer. This was previously thought to be a showcase piece - done simply as an attention-grabbing display for conventions and industry shows.

But... what if it isn't?

What if... it's a real model, that they might actually produce? Shocked

Quote:
Today, my friend who owns our local hobby shop confirmed to me that Bandai is indeed producing the model that was their centerpiece at the 2014 Tokyo Model Show- The 1/1700 Scale Imperial Star Destroyer with full fiber-optic lighting package, detailed hangar bay, and adjustable display stand.

But... an ISD is over 1,600 meters long! That would mean the model would have to be...

Quote:
At over 3.5 feet overall length, and with a parts count purported to approach 1000, this may be the largest mass-produced Star Wars model kit ever produced.

No... words... should have sent... a poet...

But... at least, it will take a long time to produce! I'll have plenty of time to
Quote:
Release is scheduled for the 3rd quarter of 2015, and MSRP is estimated to be around $400.00 USD.

Egad! So soon! But, such an outrageous price! Why, that's nearly three times the price of the LEGO kit... except, twice as big. And super-detailed. And light-up.

But that's still, like, FORGEWORLD prices!! Why, for that amount, I could get, um... a Warhound Titan! Which is nearly... um... 1/3 the size. And I still have to buy arms for it. And, um... doesn't include lights?

TL;DR: OMG buy a goddam Star Destroyer!

BECAUSE GODDAM STAR DESTROYER!!!!

Hmmmmm.... if you built a nice display case with a tempered glass top, it would make one hell of table top for an epic X-wing brawl. Seriously, that would be awesome. The Monster Death Wedge below in the background, the mini-Death Wedge surrounded by Interceptors on the "table top".... what's not to love?

H8, this will be an acceptable tribu... err.. present for my birthday. You may order and begin building the MDW when ready.
