Besides from being a beast sizewise, the detail is crisp and beautiful and I love the design. Everytime I look at the two gatling guns at the side of the turret, I imagine them shooting anti tank missiles out of the sky or obliterating enemy infantry while the tank is lumbering through the streets of a city under siege. The price of 17$ is justified in my opinion because of the size and quality of the details. CMG or Old Crow are cheaper but have less details.
The price also shows us how ridiculously overpriced Battlefront is (14$ for a Tiger, that is not even half the size of the Siler).
Will we have huge lumbering MBT in future warfare ? I don't know and I don't care ;) Against giant bugs, monsters from space, robotic titan warmachines etc. my boys need the biggest tank they can get and I can afford to buy. I'm really looking forward to send this behemoth into battle.
