About
Nimbus Station is an important world in LEGO Universe. It serves as the main travel hub from where many of the other worlds can be accessed. It is also the place where you make a crucial decision: choosing your faction. Furthermore, the vendor stands at Nimbus Plaza have special weapons and armour for each faction.

Model
This fun build for on your desk or shelf captures characteristic locations and details of Nimbus Station, including:
• micro Nimbus Plaza, with its colourful flats and the yellow vendor stands.
• a mini rocket launchpad, for travelling to other worlds.
• the forest, hills and mountainous terrain surrounding the plaza.
• a Maelstrom vortex, similar to the one seen in the mini-game The Battle of Nimbus Station. It can be rotated by turning a knob on the back of the build.
• a display stand with the LEGO Universe logo and that of the four factions.
253 pieces, 2 minifigures: The Darkitect (Baron Typhonus) and evil Bob. Also included are Typhonus' sceptre and Bob's to-do note and pencil.
