Iknowiknowiknow.  I know this thing has been all over the internets the last week or so.  But, do me a solid, and feast your eyes on it anyways:

wait! do i hear angels crying?

Wow.  Is that thing incredible, or what?!?!?  Nearly 1600pcs of Lego bliss.  I am without words (as if). I think we need to take a moment here.  Let’s observe a moment of silence and ponder the sheer beauty of this Lego set.

Okokok.  Enough genuflecting.  It’s time to bring reality crashing back down around us.  Why?  Because the set costs $199.99.  That’s two hundred dollars (American).  And if you follow my patented Toy Valuation Theorem (TVT), there’s no way I’m touching this set (tee hee.  I said “touching” and “set”).

TVT or naught, I’m still trying to justify that expenditure in my mind.  Try as I might, I just can’t.  I’m working the numbers.  I’m juggling expenses.  I’m robbing Peter, Paul, Mary, Joseph and Tony to pay Lego for that set.  And I can’t.  I can’t do it.

The most frustrating part?  Is that I probably could afford the set.  I just can’t wrap my head around that price tag.

Now, if Lego wants to send me a set to review for them?  Shit!  I’m all about that!
