That's actually way less than I imagined.

 

Yeah, I would have guessed there would have been a couple more zeros. :dunno

It's based on current technology.The author recognizes the heat from the nuclear reactors would literally melt it. If we wanted to KEEP it, I would imagine a few more 0's are needed...

Here's one for $250! Shipping is extra unless you're an Amazon Prime member.

I have this. It cost $300 about ten years ago but it was worth it. Utterly gorgeous. Not sure they even sell this set anymore.

Back to this light-hearted discussion though: I think people are either forgetting or under-estimating two, I think, very crucial elements here: slavery and theft.

 

The Galactic Empire basically operates day to on slavery, ok "conscripts."

 

Plus, it is clear through canon that the Empire really doesn't pay for anything. They simply invade a world, kill the indigenous populations, and steal all natural resources.

 

So, if we're going to build a Star Destroyer, and we don't have to pay for labor or materials, that would bring the overall price down substantially.
