Thanks to SSO for pointing out the charity auction for the one-of-a-kind Lego Republic Cruiser.
As of this posting, the top bid is $30,901.11. Shipping, at least, is free.
We saw this work of art in person at the San Diego Comic Con this year. It's truly beautiful, consisting of over 35,000 Lego pieces around a steel armature and weighing more than I do. My appreciation for this model is aided by the fact that I really like the design of the Republic cruiser. I'm going to have to pick one up when the Galactic Conquest (the Star Wars space-combat minis game) comes out in a year or two.
