What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

Recommended Posts

it was $859 (€802.84). The user had actual pictures of the model and has emailed me several times over the past day to show me additional pictures. So far so good, but until I've got the beast in my hands I'm nervous!

What ever happened with the UCS Shuttle you ordered and hadn't received?

Thanks! And thats for the SD or the SSD... 10300 right? Thats a great price I'd gladly pay... They are selling for 1k€ plus here... Too much for me, think I have to wait for a re-release from LEGO or do my own...

Never received the Shuttle and no further word from the seller... What an a... Got the money back from Paypal after 10 days, though.

But I got the 10225 save and sound... A whole bunch of loose bricks, all like new and neatly sealed in small boxes inside the behemoth of the outer box.. Can't wait to start sorting the parts out and start building this weekend.

I'm going to a local brick selling event this weekend. SW sets I'm picking up are:

Mos Eisley Cantina (full set)

Mos Eisley Cantina parts (just the Cantina)

Death Star

Hooray for plastic crack!

It was for the 10030 Imperial Star Destroyer. Unfortunately the seller backed out and said he didn't want to part with it any longer. At least he communicated it to me up front before I paid him. I think I may bricklink one using the Light Bley color instead of the original grey color. The question is should I bricklink the SD or the Falcon first? Decisions decisions...

Glad you got your money back. I've heard great things about the Shuttle

Just went into town for another two 75078s (i love the Rebels imperial stuff, and i think these will be retiring SOON), turns out they had 15% off all toys, so i picked up an extra Shadow Troopers battlepack as well, they wont be joining the Lothal garrison, but they will stand proudly among the rest of my Imperial Army

Plastic Crack indeed, im just happy (well, my wallet is) that they didnt have the FO Tie polybags :P

I've had a similar situation. Could not get in contact with the seller, so I got my money back from paypal. His wife later contacted me and said he got hospitalized, suddenly I felt really bad instead.

Yeah well these things happen... I dealt with A LOT of people on the net and its always different... Some are great to deal with (like you would think about yourself) some are "difficult" and some are just plain rude...

And of course theres the sudden illness type, guess you can never really estimate whats coming...

My gut tells me that this was a scam... But thats all in the past. Thanks to Paypal!

Got another 75088 Senate Commando Troopers battle pack. My son already had one, but he took everything including the figures apart and mixed them in to his LEGO mad scientist lab.

Put the FO TIE together last night.

Kind of underwhelmed by it, and wondering why a couple people couldn't figure out where the red stickers went?

We knew, there were just extras.

Ah, I only got one sheet.

There are either extra red stickers or the instructions don't tell you where to put all of them.

Really? My sheet only came with 4 stickers, the two for the round tiles on the wings, and the two red rectangles for the sloped bits of the right strangely-shaped piece between the cockpit and the wing.

Why were you underwhelmed, price? piece count? detail? what would need to be changed for you to be properly whelmed?

(just curious, i might want to pick it up eventually myself)

Price is too high, i got myself one for 50€ on amazon and i definitely wouldn't have paid more for it. For 50€ it's a nice set and the minifigs, the TIE fighter pilot esp are awesome, my favourite of the EP VII series so far, topped only by Rey

Oh i agree on the price, €75 list price is idiotic for 500 something parts. I had the same feeling on the tie prototype, i have to actively remind myself i only payed €30 for it to not feel bad

I got 4 red rectangles, several other people did too. I got my TIE at midnight on Force Friday at TRU.

I bought my wife the set #75102 Poe's X-Wing Fighter. It'll be her gift for Christmas. :) It's awesome finding a life mate that enjoys Legos and SW sets as much as I do.

I might get us the set #7962 "UCS" Pod Racer set for us to make together (also for Christmas).
