Ink 19 :: The Unofficial Lego Builder's Guide
"A couple of months ago, I purchased the Lego set I'd been coveting for two years: Lego 10030. Those familiar with Lego will recognize the number as the Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer, over three feet long and containing more than 3,000 pieces, the vast majority of them a light gray. It wasn't a cheap set, and I cashed in five years' worth of pocket change (what I called, rightly so, my Lego Fund) to get it. As I walked from the store to the parking lot, the bulky and quite heavy box in my hands, with my kids trailing behind me like tie fighters, a passing woman remarked on how kind I was to purchase such a big set for my son. Dream on, lady."
