Once one does that, of course, it does become noticeably more expensive.

The set retails for $29.95 at LEGO [email protected], can anyone guess the final cost of the same exact model in LDD? $181.57. That is 600% higher than the same pieces sealed in plastic and put into a fully printed cardboard box with instructions and 5-15 extra pieces. How can this be justified?
