You know what I love about Lego fanboys? The fact that a certain Lego kit doesn't exist — and that even if it did, it couldn't be built in any structurally sound fashion — in no way hinders them from creating ginormously awesome and impractical Lego designs. Case in point this six-foot Lego Asgard Beliskner battleship, as seen on Stargate SG-1.
Sadly, as wisdom teaches us, if you love something you must set it free. Thus, the creator of said Lego Asgard battleship is forced to sell it on eBay:
"AFTER THREE MONTHS OF HARD WORK AND TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PIECES MY BELISKNER IS FINALLY FINISHED. FANS OF THE SHOW KNOW THAT THE BELISKNER WAS THE FLAGSHIP OF THE ASGARD FLEET IN STARGATE SG-1 UNTIL IT BURNED UP IN EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE. AFTER WATCHING THE SERIES I KNEW THAT I HAD TO BUILD THE SHIP OUT OF LEGOS, THE THE RESULT WAS A INCREDIBLY LARGE AND DETAILED SHIP THAT MEASURED FIVE FEET LONG, SIX FEET WIDE, AND TWO FEET HIGH. EVEN THOUGH I LOVE THE SHIP I CAN'T KEEP IT DUE TO ITS SIZE AND I MUST SELL IT."
If you're sitting on a spare US $3,500 dollars (and in this economy, who isn't), you can buy this bad boy forthwith. Me, I'm holding out for the scale model of Atlantis.
