Kewl, that looks really realy good!  I wish I could enter, but infortunatley it is open to US people only - I live in the UK.  Loads of amazing LEGO Star Wars this week, first the Sandcrawler and now this.  I wonder what other suprises there will be since Lego said there is much not covered...  But anyway, good luck to you all!

It would not be that expensive to build it (its not worth $1800). Here is a link to a model of R2D2 that looks much the same.  :)

Looks cool to be sure, but $1,800?  REALLY?  How did they estimate that much?  On rarity alone? Are they just padding out the costs to make the prize seem worth more than it really is?

I'm guessing the price is just based on rarity, since there's only one of them.

But how do they value it to $1,800?  To be rare is one thing, to be worth something is another.
