I had a look at it in a catalogue some weeks ago and although yeah it is awesome it's not very usable as is. I would want the Nebulon B Frigate that this is part of so I can fight it out with the Empire. Full scale too, with a full compliment of minifigs and fighters and guns and more guns and I want it to fly and I would live in it and go places and, and, and *pant! gasp! breath!*  :oops: Yeah, it's not to bad.

A set with both Admiral Ackbar and Mon Mothma is obviously awesome, since neither of them is a main character, yet they have an epic line each.

Admiral Ackbar is way cooler than Mon Montha. She didn't get a product endorsement, did she?

Mon Mothma IS the Rebel Alliance! It's not her fault that Ackbar is the looker.

Yes, but everyone (at least, everyone on this forum) knows where "It's a TRAP!" comes from, and I defy you to think of a single famous quote from Mon Mothma.

6. Hot linking is when you have a bunch of sausages that are still linked together and you cook them without separating them first.

7. Hot linking is when a belt fed machine gun is running low on ammo and you attach another belt to the existing (being used) belt while still shooting.

8. Hot linking is posting a URL to an image hosted on another web site instead of your own web hosting. Thus forcing them to use up their monthly bandwidth allowance faster. Its like stealing, sort of. The image above is linked from Wikipedia.

I'm sure she has said "My name is Mon Mothma" at some point.

"Many Bothans died" etc. etc.  The rest of the quote can be changed according to suit her needs; "Many Bothans died for these cheeseburgers" for instance.

Mon Mothma was famous for turning the most simple everyday tasks into Bothan suicide missions.  She's like the polar opposite of those "no animals were harmed in the making of this movie" messages.

:mbd: for this explanation.

Sorry for nerding out here but it says in the Lego description that this set is part of a Mon Cal Cruiser? I had always (assumed?) thought that it was a Nebelon B Frigate they had the meeting on, I think because of the way the scene was edited, they closed in on that ship type and then show the inside... or so I always thought. Anyway, is this from a Mon Cal or a Nebelon B?

Many Bothans died to post this... (Shouldn't they be an endangered species by now?)
