    I'm a casual Lego fan and yeah, that **** is pricey, pound for pound maybe not but given that there is no painting, or anything once its built, its not the best value for money.

    Hobbies are expensive because they're luxuries, no one needs them so they charge what they can to maximize the return on investment. I wouldn't spend more on models if they were cheaper, I already buy more than I can reasonably paint or use, thus why all hobbyists I know have a "Pile of Shame", I'm already at the peak for my spending, so making them cheaper would just mean they make less profit from most of us.Yes there are some kept out of the hobby because of the price but GW (and the other companies, again my FSA or DZC cost a fair bit for a lot less in terms of material and quality) have decided that they won't bring in as much profit as people willing to spend more.

    pile of shame

    I like that.

    However the process of robo-insemination is far too complex for the human mind!

    I don't have a Pile of Shame.

    A small mountain perhaps, but certainly not a pile.

    Then again a lot of my shame is white metal :P

    The trick is to deconstruct and build it new over and over again.

    I'm kind of hesitant to do this with my GW models.

    That's what I always did with mine when I had them. Haven't had any in a long time, but if I picked up some sets (kind of tempted), they'd maybe be built as what they're supposed to be once, before I pull them apart and then build all kinds of other stuff for fun. To me, that was always the fun of LEGO blocks, using my imagination to build all kinds of random stuff. Same for any of the other construction sets my parents got me as a kid (like the metal ones that also had motors and wheels and stuff).

    Also if you put all your pieces into one big box you need to search forever to find the right pieces. Even more value for money.
