5 and a Half hours + 1310 bricks + 18 minifgures + 1 Englishman = ...S

Well, this actually.

It was a really fun building experience over all, and really easy to get back into the swing of it despite my relative inexperience with Lego products over the last 10 years (the only other thing I've built in that period was Bag End last Christmas, which was about a third of the time/brick amount as this was!). All it needs now is Jabba's Sail Barge, which is coming out later this year.

I wanted to do a fancy slideshow á la Telepod's one last week, but the Photobucket beta - unlike this one! - is kinda shitty and won't let me embed one. But it'll let me embed something, so let's find out together! Here's another 30-odd photos of the build process:

Edit: Well, screw that mess, Photobucket! Here's just a link to the album instead.
