    [REVIEW] 10268 - Vestas Wind Turbine

    I am relatively new here but I am under the impression that this site is dedicated to plastic construction toys rather than discussions centered around climate science. If you want to defend the fossil fuel industry and argue that the environmental impact of fossil fuels on all living things is superior to that of renewable energy, there are many dark corners of the web where people lurk and do just that. As for the specific impact of wind turbines on bats and birds, the large majority of scientists who are not on the payroll of the oil, natural gas and coal industries will tell you that the harm is wildly overstated. For example: "studies have estimated the number of annual avian fatalities by U.S. wind turbines from 10,000 all the way to 440,000. As a comparison, collisions with buildings may kill up to 976 million birds" and "Outdoor cats are the leading cause of death among both birds and mammals in the United States, according to a new study, killing 1.4 billion to 3.7 billion birds each year." If you are really concerned about the plight of birds and bats and feel compelled to carry on the discusssion here, perhaps this would be a more appropriate thread:

    Where can you get the original set for $200 US? I'm seeing $450 and up for it....
  5. Interesting approach: restart a discussion that you know has been discouaraged and then chastise people when they respond.

    Whether they realize it or not, this seems to be what several people are saying they want. Although at 400,000 pieces and 13 feet x 13 feet, I anticipate some of the same folks would be grousing over price, bulk shipping and display issues should such a set come to be.

    The released set represents perhaps a third of the entire castle. I'm not sure how much of an appetite there would be amongst the general population for an 18000 piece $1200 USD Hogwarts set.

    Bingo. US shop at home has them listed at $3.99.

    I'm interpreting that as meaning that this is the best anyone can do a DB5 at this scale in Lego. If I am reading your comment correctly, I agree.

    I also think the aesthetics leave something to be desired but the gadget functions are pretty cool; especially the ejector seat and front machine guns. As a fan of Aston Martin and James Bond, I'll be buying.

    See point already made by nikhkin but in my current reality, $5.27 is definitely significantly greater than $3.99.

    Not as cool looking as I had thought it would be. Hopefully the gadgets will save it.
