Invisible Hand Spaceship (from Star Wars)

Name of Model: Invisible Hand

So this is truly the model of the day - it was first spotted late last night and has already gone viral and made it's way to all of the big tech and Star Wars websites. It's deserving of the honor, of course, but gosh it seems like these things get to be well-known fast these days. I was having trouble remembering where this falls in the Star Wars storyline, but apparently it's General Grievous' command ship. This is a specific Trade Federation Cruiser that appears in episode 3 (more Star Wars info at http://www.starwars.com/databank/starship/tradefederationcruiser/). Here are some of the stats:
  • 9 months of building
  • 231 studs long
  • Weighs 30 pounds (nearly 14 kilograms)
  • The outer details leave ZERO (0) LEGO studs showing.
