What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

Recommended Posts

I finally did it. I am now the proud owner of a 10179. I made an offer of 1k and he countered at $1650. I countered at $1025 and explained how I had watched this set go up and I am now watching it go down. A day went by and my offer was accepted. I got the set with the box in great condition, the instructions are prime, and the sticker sheet is unused!!! I may still be over extended at 1k but at least I didn't pay north of 2k!!!

I've gotten back into Lego Star Wars in a big way; over the last week I've purchased the Bounty Hunter Battle Pack, Darth Vader's Transformation, Phantom, Imperial Hovertank, Y-Wing, and Resistance X-Wing.

I'm next going to go for the U-Wing, Rathar Escape, and Krennic's Shuttle.

well a chunk of my  orders arrived I now own a Boushh & a Lando in Jabba's palace guard out fit both really cool and very happy with them

also bolstered the snow trooper ranks with 5 more so now have 9 to attack my UCS Assault on  Hoth  set

and brought some of the movie correct moulded weapons, I am  really pleased with these as well, ok these aren't real TLG stuff but they look great I have Han's blaster, Rey's blaster Boba Fett's rifle and then some of the Snow trooper rifles and the storm trooper & rebel carbines and a clone trooper long rifle the really look good and finish of the look of the figures nicely

Maybe this is the thread he should be posting in...

Edit - I am not sure why that picture showed up in the link part, so sorry for that.

Picked up the U-Wing, Yoda's Jedi Starfighter, AT-ST, and the Rebels Medical Frigate! Really excited to build the frigate and making some modifications to the U-Wing.

In the Netherlands they are doing a big sale on many sets of Rogue One and other sets too, discounts of at least 50-70% on sets. I asked the store manager and he said they were told by LEGO to clear shelves for Force Friday II. So I expect a lot of the sets to be retired soon too in other stores. Most of the sets are already out of stock btw (as expected). (Shops: Intertoys/Bart Smit/SpeelgoedNL and multiple smaller stores)

Sets affected are:

Battle of Takodana

Carbon Freezing Room

Encounter on Jakku

FO battle pack (old one)

All Rogue One and some TFA buildable figures (70%)

Resistance Transport

Kylo's Shuttle

Clone Turbo Tank

Krennic's Shuttle

Rey's Speeder

Kylo's Shuttle

Tie Striker

AT-ST

Imperial Hovertank

Captain Rex's AT-TE

Eclipse Fighter

Scout Trooper & Speeder Bike

Poe's X-wing

U-wing

FO-TIE

The Phantom

Rebel Trooper Battle Pack

Krennic Shuttle Microfighter

Imperial trooper Battle Pack

 

Couldn't resist these discounts, bought Krennic's shuttle (€53), Microfighter (€5), 7x Imperial trooper battle pack (€9), Scout Trooper & Speeder Bike (€18), Hovertank (€21), Carbon Freezing Room (€16) and got 2x free Jyn Erso Constraction with it. Wanted some more sets but most where already sold out :(

I've bricklinked a black Kylo Shuttle that's coming in the mail.


Also just received a Shuttle Tyderium, and have a Resistance Troop Transporter coming.


My first Lego purchase since I was a kid (and didn't buy them myself) was just recently the new A-Wing.


This is after being sucked into Lego by an off brand that I think itsn't allowed to be discussed on here. I built a certain large and coveted set, and now I'm buying real Lego after a second set's quality disappointed me.


And I'm leaking money like a sieve.

Impulse buy on a second Ewok Village, but it was $240 (AU$300). Used but mint condition. 

Not great when I should be starting to Bricklink UT-60D U-Wing...

Buildable Figure Stormtrooper Commander. Pretty cool, though I think I like him better as a plain Stormtrooper. A good addition to my Star Wars bookshelf.

I'll be more on topic this time lol.

I just bought and built 75171 "The Battle on Scarif". Loved R1 - one of my favourite SW movies and this was a great set to build and look at. I'm now in the process of acquiring minifigs to fill up the space. Got Jyn Erso, Cassian Andor, Baze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe so far. Will likely Bricklink Bodhi and K2-SO as I'm not really interested in Krennic's Shuttle.

I recently moved across the country so I haven't bought a new set in awhile.  As part of my packing I meticulously disassembled all of my sets and have been slowly rebuilding them all summmer, but I missed that feeling of a new set - slicing the tape on the box, opening the numbered bags along with the instructions and sorting the extra pieces into my collection.

I know TLJ sets are right around the corner, but I got impatient and on a whim purchased The Phantom 75170.  I do watch SW Rebels and have a few of the sets, but I was primarily buying this one for the Thrawn and Blind Kanan minifigs.  Even knowing that, this was one of the most disappointing sets I've bought in a long time. Not only is it barely passable as the ship from the show; it is overly reliant on stickers, the cockpit had no hinge, the landing gear doesn't line up, and the lasers are difficult to trigger.  Blech! 

Apologies for the gripe fest; I wish I had something better to say about it.  If you are on the fence I would avoid this one unless you really want the figs. I guess the BL prices for Thrawn and Kanan probably make it a wash if you get the set on sale like I did.  Maybe I'll check out some alternate build videos.

I have the set and don't mind it too much, although it's far from perfect. It's not very elegant and the fin at the top should be much longer. I got it on sale too so I feel a little better. I do quite like as a display piece although I may dismantle it later. I won't be purchasing many, if any, of the TLJ sets (at least not this year) so I'll leave it assembled for now while I have the space.
