Stop motions are very demanding on your time. Each tiny movement means a change, a photograph and an ever-expanding animation. Imagine how long it would take to put together a stop motion animation of a LEGO Death Star coming together.

You can buy this build yourself from LEGO. Introducing Set number 75159 the Death Star and some 4,000 pieces.
