What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

Recommended Posts

Got 3x microfighter: U-wing, Y-wing, Krennic. Great little sets with great parts :D

Also finally got the UCS Sandcrawler! It's very impressive, but assembling the 300+ threads is very frustrating :grin:

The U-Wing and Y-Wing Microfighters are indeed excellent!  i just got them in the mail today and built them right away.  :classic:  Is there a reason why you don't want the TIE Striker Microfighter, or do you already have it/hoping to buy it later?

Well the seller I ordered from said it was cheapest to put 3x in a packet with folded boxes, a 4th would not fit or I'd have to pay for an extra packet. So I ordered the 3 nicest ones to me, also I already have a Tie Striker pilot. But I think I'm going to order another batch, but not sure yet which I'll request in there, I might just buy a Tie Striker Microfighter in that one, but probs 1x U wing, 2x Y wing or so, not sure.

Where did you "pick" them up from? :)

I've been spending all my food money on sets while at uni. Picked up 7662 MTT, 75137 carbon chamber, 7661 Booster ring and 75132 First order battlepack. Picked all these up for a total cost of £130 / $160 / 150 euros.

Worth starving for I reckon.

I don't know whether to laugh or be sad but "worth starving for I reckon" should be used by TLG for promotional purposes!

Very nice. I've been picking up some older sets as well. I plan on getting the 7662 MTT at some point.

Today was the winter wave release in the US so I picked up the new Y-Wing and A-Wing.  I would have gotten the Desert Skiff and possibly the Landspeeder (mostly for another Tusken Raider) but they were nowhere to be found.  Toys R Us has most everything else - Microfighters, Yoda's Starfighter, Duel on Naboo, Phantom II, Battle on Scariff.  I don't remember reading that those two sets were exclusives, but neither are listed on TRUs website, and nothing is up on Target yet.

YES, finally the North American release date!  Although apparently both my local Toys R Us and Target had the sets out for a few days and I didn't realize it.  Anyway, I bought the much-anticipated Y-Wing, and I can't wait to build it this weekend.  :sweet:

K2SO build-able figure for only $8 USD! Great bargain!

That is a steal.  I personally dislike all of the buildable figures, but I would be tempted by that price.  K2SO is probably the best of the bunch, because he's supposed to look mechanical.  :wink:

I haven't been collecting to many of the Star Wars buildable figures (I was into Bionicle during both of its production runs, but those sets were a lot cheaper than the Star Wars ones are); but when I see a good deal I pick up the Star Wars ones. $8 Was an absolute steal! The only other Star Wars figure I own is General Grievous who as a mechanical character also looks great in the medium. From what I have seen the troopers and masked figures don't look half bad either. In particular the Speeder Bike set coming out later this year looks to be the highlight of the Star Wars Buildable Figure line.

Picked up a used SSD 10221 today... little dusty, without box/instructions, but with all the figures and at the original price of 400€... very happy, and right in the middle of dismanteling it right now for cleaning and storing.

The skiff and landspeeder are retail exclusives, so that's why you couldn't find them. Landspeeder is Walmart exclusive and not sure about skiff.

Is the A-Wing a TRU exclusive?  On LEGO Shop.com, it's back-ordered until March 28!  I mean, I saw the set at Toys R Us when I was there two days ago, but I haven't seen it anywhere else.  :wacko:

So, basically every new set.  :grin:  I'm definitely jealous, but I wish you happy building!  I think I'll buy the Battle on Scarif next, probably this coming Friday or Saturday.

I still marvel at some of the hauls you guys just casually seem to pick up :grin:

Anywho, as I was feeling particularly down in the last few weeks, I couldn't resist (hah) picking up a Resistance X-wing.

I am a hypocrite, since I lashed out multiple times over the inaccuracy of this set, but I just had to feed the addiction, and it will definitely be modified in the future.
