There are few LEGO creations that will eclipse the custom-made Helm’s Deep and Hogwarts builds.  But alas, those are custom builds, and not available for you and I to purchase – unless of course we want to spend an absurd amount of money as well as time.  The alternative?

If it’s not that excessively expensive LEGO Death Star, I suggest you take a look at the recently announced LEGO Ewok Village.  Unfortunately, it won’t arrive in store until September 1st and it costs a bank account draining $250.  Not cheap by any accounts, but when you consider the bundle of goodies that it ships with it, it might well be worth its weight in gold.
