What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

Recommended Posts

I took advantage of targets demise, feeling somewhat guilty because i'll miss it but i picked up: x4 star destroyers, x1 the ghost, x1 cantina bar and 1 AT-AT. they're all multiples so they'll be staying in the box for collection purposes.

then I swung by wal-mart and picked up the T-16 and Ani's custom jedi star fighter and they were some of my most personally enjoyed builds yet.

Ordered a lot of pieces for a MOC on PaB + 75089 Geonosis troopers. Some of you may recall my misgivings on Utapau troopers vehicle and determination to skip on amazing minifigs because of TLG lazy design of the octupptara, so this was finally a chance for me to get hold of this fantastic mold for airborne troopers. This will nicely complement my Geonosis diorama one day.

The interesting thing is that my main order was PaB and I only took Geonosis troopers to pass a treshold of free shipping on S@H, and then they sent me only the Geonosis troopers set (24h delivery, hats-off S@H! :oh: ) and informed me that PaB orders usually take 7-10 business days (obvious logistics reasons) which means that they are easily going to pay shipping on two separate deliveries *huh* .

Now that's some serious customer service, I would have been completely ok with waiting for the complete order until it's ready, great job TLG! Praise where the praise is due, but I am still going to keep criticizing lazy designs in hopes of improving where there's space to do so :classic: .

No intensions of "real" army building... I just like their camouflage armour very much!

And as theres always some room for more troopers, I thought... Why not?

Their camouflage armor is impressive. I really like it and, of course, there is always some room for more troopers :classic:

I received my slave 1 on Friday from my online order and the other items I had bought at my local Lego store during double VIP points. The midi scale Star Destroyer I received from a third party sale recently. I am going to use all of my double VIP points on the upcoming UCS Tie Fighter that is coming out in May.

Picked up another 10212 Imperial shuttle for US$365 yesterday. Only issues are that the box and 1 small bag were opened.

Can't wait to build this and not open my MISB 10212 instead. Stoked! :)

Using the Lego Store Gift Card my friend gave me for birthday (that was really cute of her!), I got the TIE Advanced Prototype. Here in Germany this one is overpriced I feel (50 Euros), so I was glad about the gift card.

The set itself is certainly nice, though. Excellent build, good minifigs. The TIE pilot's print could have been better, but that is the only complaint I have beside the price.

(And I know some people complained about the red spring loaded shooters, because the TIE uses green laser bolts. Yes, it does, but it also has red emitters on the cannons. So when the shooters are loaded it looks accurate!).

I'll put the AT-DP on my "to buy list" for sure. The Minifigures are indeed interesting and an additional walker would hurt, after all.

True! I actually prefer walkers to spacecraft due to their often better display value. And you may think of the AT-DP as the brother of the AT-AP. One is tall and lanky, the other short and stubby; one is fast, the other powerful; one for defense, one for attack. They make a nice display together, even if they are from different eras.

I strongly agree on the walkers: they would be perfect to display together :classic:

I live in Italy so I payed the same price for the Prototype Tie ( Lego sets cost more here in Europe than in USA :classic: )

It's a nice set but I too think it's overpriced. If we consider the price per piece it more overpriced than the Wookiee Gunship :classic:

Imperial Inspection. The printed stormies are pretty unquie.

That's pricey. How much did you get it for, and from where?

It was a used set with no box. Still need to wash the pieces before assembly. I got it for $127.50 shipped off of EBay. Not bad. Was one of the sets I got rid of and wanted it back.

How is the AT-TE? I have the first ever released AT-TE and since I saw a couple of them with a "not-so-huge" discount I was wondering if it would be a good purchase :classic:

Thanks for the info :classic:

Accept it has a speeder with storage for it. :P

The speeder storage is a nice feature.

It also has enough room for several Clone Troopers. I don't remember if the new one has the same transport capacity :classic:

It can hold quite a few troops, especially if you take out the slidable flick missile rack. I personally love it as a set.

That's great.

Sadly I was away from the Lego hobby when it was released and when I came back I had so many sets to buy. I'll try to see if I can still get it with some discount, then :classic:

I know the clone wars one didn't. The bulk of the front was taken up by the spring loaded missiles.

Just buy the 10236 Ewok Village half price ( favor of a friend working in Lego Store ) and the 75054 AT-AT.

Employee discount?
