You also don't realize how BIG the NASA shuttle is, its easily the same size as the imperial shuttle.
Not to mention that the gear mechanism for the shuttle operates on different levers? Edit: the Wings
You could spend $327 and get Slave 1, Tantive IV, and this NASA shuttle vs 260 for the imperial shuttle with no boarding ramp.
I'm a bit disappointed in this model.
I don't really understand most of what you said, but the part in red really has me perplexed. I could spend $1000 and get the Slave 1, Tantive IV, the NASA shuttle, a Green Grocer, a Taj Mahal, a couple of large Cars DUPLO sets for my son, a few Creator houses, and round it out with a few Pick-a-Brick cups and Bricklink orders, but that hardly seems a fair comparison to make against a single $260 set.
