I forgot I took these pics at San Diego Comic Con back in 2005.


Does anyone know what happens to models like these?
I wonder if they have something like this at SW Lego Land exhibit?

That's one mightily impressive Venator creation alright, considering the time it was built back in '05. It's actually the first time I've seen this, so thanks for sharing this Solscud! :thumbup:

That is such a beautiful build.

I remember seeing pics of this thing being hoisted onto the stand that you see in the pics, holding it up.

I could use a UCS of this. :)

Yes, I remember seeing the official LEGO auction on Ebay.  It did sell for close to $30K.

I saw this in person at LEGOLand California Star Wars Days and it was quite impressive.  Amazing model with lots of details.
So much LEGO, so little time...

I wish I had 30k for Legos. I wonder if it went to some type of movie collection/museum memorabilia type deal or a private collector? Nonetheless this is one heck of a Venator.

Wasn't this the one where the buyer refused to pay as a bit fell off during transit and he tried to claim it was damaged artwork and thus worth less? There was some speculation that he had in fact bid a large amount he couldn't afford and thus was looking for any excuse not to pay.

So petty considering it was for charity.
