    True, but now let's try to imagine what an actual commercial Lego set at that size and part count would cost. (cringe)

    I don't think it would cost much more than $100. Maybe $150. I'm almost ashamed to say I would probably buy it if that was mass released even at those prices!

    My older brother and I made transformable Lego versions of Prime and Soundwave back in the 80s, but they paled greatly in comparison to this one. I'm in awe, frankly. I would pay good money to own that.

    I wish I'd thought to take photos of the ones we built. Considering that was 20 years ago and what we had to work with (which included the "Lego Technic" line), I thought we did a pretty nice job.

    He should recreate it with the LEGO Digital Designer and upload it, so that we can purchase it. Considering I spent $300 on a Star Destroyer set, I'd totally buy this.

    given how effectively Lego spot markets that will pay the big bucks for their merchandise, it'd likely be up there with the super-expensive limitedish-edition ultimate-collector's millennium falcon, which is on the Lego site for GBP £342 (and is sold out, meaning people with far too much room in their houses bought them all).

    in USD that's roughly $56,000,000.

    If they made such a TF Lego set, it had better freaking be huge for that price.

    Based on my LDD experience, a commercial version might be anywhere from 100-300 dollars, but a buyable LDD version (if all the parts were actually available, which I bet they're not), it'd be ... i dunno ... maybe $2500. :)
