What was your first LEGO Star Wars set?

Recommended Posts

Mine was 7143-Jedi Starfighter from the Episode 2 toyline. Of course, it was swiftly followed up by the 7541-Slave 1. I was already a fan of the franchise since before then, but the Prequel vehicles caught my eye in a way the OT ships couldn’t match.

Landspeeder 7110 in 1999 was my first Star Wars set , then I got the Droid Fighter 7111 in 2000 and then in 2002 I got final duel 1. 
Despite getting a set here and there as a little kid, I thought yellow heads on the figures are the lamest thing imaginable so I was more into action figures, collecting movie sticker albums and other star wars toys like micromachines. To this day I still hate yellow LEGO heads.

In 2007 MTT came out and I got super into LEGO Star Wars. The Phantom Menace was (still is) my favorite Star Wars movie so being able to replay one of my favorite scenes from the movie with droids coming out of the MTT was a dream come true. I had so much fun with that set and red security droid was my favorite figure.

The clone wars coming in 2008 made me love the theme even more and in 2009 my entire neighbourhood started collecting which made collecting better, easier and even more fun.
2009 was the absolute peak with the Endor Bunker set that gave me almost the same amount of fun as the MTT. We also had Clone battle pack, AAT, Republic and Separatist shuttles and most importantly my then favorite character Nute Gunray. I have been collecting ever since and I have been waitin for 24 years for Rune Haako and Nute Gunray minfiigures from episode 1.

Mine was the 7121 Naboo Swamp from 1999. I remember, there was a big hype around the first prequel movie...

After that, I moved on to the UCS TIE Interceptor! :grin:
