7 foot long Lego Star Wars cruiser is epic in its awesomeness

There's no shortage of pathetically geeky gadgets you can get to show your love for Star Wars, but every now and then we come across something so awesome that it's hard to dismiss.

This seven foot long model of the Home One Calamari Cruiser from Return of The Jedi was built by Thomas Benedikt using 30,500 (mostly gray!) Lego pieces, and took about 11 months to complete at a cost of $5500.

Thomas is clearly about as dedicated as Star Wars fans get, check out his MOC page to see more of his amazing models.
