Picked up Darth Vader Transformation the other day. Not only was the original the first LEGO set I remember getting, how could I say no to a cheap Vader?

That was my thought exactly when I saw it!

Tbh, that kinda guides most of my opinions on LEGO Star Wars, like:
Crappy halfway-built AT-ST: Cheap Phasma and BB-8, so it's good in my book.

I thought that, but I also liked the rest of the Vader set, and that AT-ST costing more than the Rogue One version was just too much for me, even with Phasma.

 

Then again, I've been trying to stick to a theme of early empire, original trilogy sets and anything clone wars that could be passed off as still being used so Phasma had much less importance to me.

I understand. I'm also thinking about getting into imperial army building, if only because a CIS army would be too stiff for my tastes.

The rebels stormtrooper battle pack was a good buy for that, 4 stormies and useful grey plates 

 

for £11, but it's only around at extortionate prices now. The rogue one pack with two Death troopers wasn't bad either, though the mini build was a bit bland.

Ordered 10 x winged Geonosians and 4 x Battle Droids Security

What are you planning to create with these?

Got another bounty hunter battle pack for my custom Jabba Palace. First one is devoted to a 75055 Star Destroyer.

Indeed! I didn't like too much the Rebels' helmet design, but I saw them as a different squadrom to peace my mind. I got some before the new battle packs with classic storm troopers, which I like more. That set was much better than average and it had 155 pieces, which is still quite uncommon for a battle pack and, as the stormies held their value, the pieces alone were very cheap. I took several of those.

Last set is the 75170 Y-wing at 33%, maybe not the best deal, but was a good one. Before I managed to buy the 75179 Kylo Ren's TIE Fighter at 40% both from Amazon.it

Last LEGO sets were 75154 TIE Striker and 75170 Y-Wing, both ~25% off. Last brickset was THIS Efferman-inspired vertical stand for 75105 MF, €24,27 shipping/taxes included via bricklink. The KRMF i'm going to buy will get the same stand, but a different colour.

I've only gone and got another AT-AP 7671 (just love them) and the Rebels AT-DP (yeah I have a walker problem).

The AT-DP to me just looks so mean and powerful, plus it's imposing height I just had to have it, and it fits with the theme I'm building nicely.

 

Now serious question; I have the option of scoring either an AT-TE 7675 or the Republic Frigate. Getting both is a bit out of my budget, as much as I just want to! The at-te will round out my ground forces nicely especially with a bit of interior modding to create a proper troop and command compartments, but the only space ship I have is a B-wing for the rebel scum, and a V-wing (imperial version) so the frigate gives me some space power as well as a cool looking ship I can fiddle with. Decisions, decisions...

2 weeks ago I bought the Millennium Falcon and every night I've built one numbered set of bags. Today was the last set and the Falcon is finally finished :classic: 

Now comes part two; finding a spot to place this monster of a set...

Contemplating buying 75153 at st from rogue one. Found it at 42€ MISB. Worth it? 

Thanks

I would say yes, it's a great model that's easily modified, though it needs work to better pose the legs s they only move at the hip.

The driver is  great new version and Baze Malbus is just fantastic.
