    Does it come with a ten-year/100,000 mile warranty?

    My thought exactly when I saw a few people on Rebelscum drooling and ready to throw their money at EFX for this.

    I already said it in the other thread: do you want EFX to hold onto your money for decades, only to release from time to time announcements telling about various delays? Then throw your money on an EFX Star Destroyer!!

    8k is down payment. Then it explains options for you to pay off. .

    For $16000 this Star Destroyer should fly by itself, release TIE Fighters and drop AT-AT's, have a barge full of Twi-lek dancers, and blue milk dispensers ...

    We must look..what is realistic.
    First this is a big prop and its handmade.Not in China.So a higher price is ok.
    But will they spent really so much time and love in it like build from a privat modelmaker.I say no.
    So it is only a big handmade replica with a medium paintjob and lights inside at the end.So is it worth so much money?Never.
    I think 6000$ is the highest price I would pay for this.

    And the other question...who is so crazy sending EFX 8000$?

    "$8,000 deposit at pre-order. $4,000 when your model is approximately 30 days from shipping. $4,000 when your model is ready to ship.":D

    Is silicon,resin,some aluminium and lamps so expensive that you need 8000$!!! Deposit to start with one of these ships?:rolleyes:

    If it was the 8 footer, came with a scaled Falcon, Tantive IV, and Imperial Shuttle, maybe... But this? And with their established track record? Nope.

    I am still waiting on that kit and the Falcon 5' kit.

    I got a lot of info from one of our members who is building the 5 footer and after him sharing lots of info about time and cost I simply scratched that build of my list. Short of a kit I won't have a 5' Falcon in my collection or an 8' Star Destroyer.

    I think there is a killing to be made if someone actually made a kit for either of those but it has not happened so far.

    Everytime I think EFX can't sink lower they do.

    Where is that Boba Fett helmet. Gino cast it when they announced it and it's the simplest main character helmet in Star Wars. Where is the Hero Stormy suit, again cast by Gino, and the Hero Stormy helmet? What happened to those???????????????????????????

    Agree with you that it'd be nice to have more SS available. Something along the lines of DeAgo would be great where the modeler has to put it together and paint would lower costs.

    Concerning the Stormy suit; at this point you're better off going with RS.

    Yeah I hoped Deagostini would offer a 5ft Falcon or 8ft S.D. but realistically I think those will only be for the ones insane (in a good way) to take it on. I was utterly shocked at what has gone into the few in progress 5' Falcons there are.

    Everyone belly-aches over the pricing of a really high quality piece. You don't like the price? Clearly you are not their customer. If you want to build it so badly, the resources are here on the RPF to build one from scratch, but I am sure the guys who have done it will tell you that they spent a ton of sweat equity in making it a reality that may even far exceed the eFX asking price.

    I think you can find a really talented "spaceshipguy" who can build you 2 of them for 16000$.;)

    I think they make this extreme expensive offer because they need lots of money and that very fast.How much helmets and other stuff you must sell for 8000$?
    Its not only Star Wars...same Game with the Marvel props.The Ironmanhelmet is a preorder for years.
