Turrets:
- need gunners/programs to actually shoot things
- get jammed a lot
- not having fun about the fact that they can shoot

Orcs:
+ can shoot things by themselves
+ the only time they get jammed is when they fucking die
+ getting loads of fun out of the shooting process

That ship looks like a cobbled-together mess of miscellaneous junk.

Spoiler: show
It's beautiful.

Here in Mesquite, TX... it ain't that worth it yet. Legos are like 5%, while Barbie stuff are 10% off. Still, bought myself some Lego sets for kicks, and managed to nab Musicians minifigs (TRU exclusive).
