Roughly how many pieces is the model? Its of good size and it helps to see it next to a person to get an idea of its scale. Course if they kept it to scale chances are good it would be a fairly high priced model.... Though for whatever reason it reminds me of the old explorieon (or however you spell it) sets I played with as a kid. Look forward to picking this one up.

I already supported it, so, yeah... good luck with it. Much more interested than the 12+ posts about a certain CSM chairman.

I guess this is what I get for posting this during a CSM scandal - pushed to the back pages of the forums.

A nice stunt would be that IF its made you get an Ingame lego rifter model when buying the real Lego one.

Dude, where is my Quafe Megathron?

CCP has been great at promoting this so far (login advert, facebook, tweeting, having the model at fanfest). I'm trying to drum up support as well. I appreciate all the help.

There are more things we can do to draw attention and while I won't even bother asking for an ingame LEGO Rifter, how cute would it be if you could have a miniature LEGO Rifter in your captain's quarters. Hmm, maybe I will mention it...

it does ask how much you are willing to spend on it and how many you want, now we need 6,148 to hit the 10,000 supporter mark.

One thing about that "how much would you pay for it" question... I don't know what the going rate on LEGO is these days (other than "yup, still expensive") but also even with the measurements I wasn't able to get a good sense of the scale of the thing... I'm assuming part of their "will we make it" review is to take the possibly-serious answers against what they'd sell that much plastic for... is there any way you can get Hilmar's permission to put that photo on the cuusoo site? It'd at least let those of us who'd like to give a proper answer (rather than just one meeeeeelion dollars! or some other nonsense) a better judge of what we're saying we might buy. Looking at the site and the dimensions, I know personally I underestimated both what it was and what I'd probably *have* to pay for it, and even though I'd rather it were a nice sensible Caldari ship I would find any ship really nifty.

We judge LEGO on a price per piece ration. It usually averages out to about 10 cents per piece. The smaller sets are usually more then ten cents per piece and the larger sets are usually less. This means that a small set may have around 70 pieces and cost $10 whereas a giant set may have 1200 pieces and cost $100. Amazingly enough, if you look at LEGO sets from 20 years ago, the price to piece ration is about the same. The difference is that the overall piece count was usually MUCH less. A giant set from 20 years ago could have like 400 pieces and therefore cost around $45. LEGO just adds a lot more detail these days. The minifig has also had some upgrades. Gone are the days of simple smiley faces. Now they have custom heads and specialized unique printing. This adds up.

I'm not sure how much the "how much would you pay for it" question is used for product design. The model I built was probably around 1500-1800 pieces I'm guessing but will most likely be downsized for production.

PSA to alliance leaders:

Tired of drunkenly spamming Jabber pings to no real end? Then take a moment today to drunkenly spam the LEGO Rifter link. It's for a good cause.

Example spam:

This **** is awesome, sorry for the spam, but it needs exposure. Create an account and support it if your tinfoil hats will permit.

6140 more to go to the finish line.

At this rate we're going to pass up the bucket of strom troopers and zelda in a week or so.

Can't believe you haven't hit 10,000 already. Great build, would love to see a collector's line of Eve Lego ships in the vein of the Star Wars collector's models.

+1'd the day I found out about it.
