What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

Recommended Posts

I've been on a bit of a binge over the past few months after taking a break from star wars sets, here's what I picked up:

7675 AT-TE: Picked this up to go with my gunship I've had for a while, I quite like it.

7662 MTT: Been after this one ever since it came out, and finally got it after finding a good deal on a mostly complete one on eBay. After a small bricklink order, I've got it at last. :wub:

7654 Droid battle pack: Got 2 of these for pretty cheap to flank my MTT, they look great together. We're long overdue for a new droid battle pack, but I digress.

75015 Corporate Alliance tank droid: Even though the minifigs are episode II themed, it goes great with another set I picked up recently:

75234 AT-AP: Big Improvement over the 2008 model, which is the only one I had. Love the new camo droids.

75211 Tie fighter: Again, a colossal improvement over the last one I had, which was the 2005 model.

Also bricklinked some parts to make a red episode III Obi-Wan's jedi starfighter based on the one in 7283 ultimate space battle. I ended up with two 7256 jedi starfighter and vulture droid sets back in the day, so I color swapped one. They look great together.

10212 UCS Imperial Shuttle. Not brand new but close - the box had been opened but the bags were all sealed. Managed to get it off eBay for £360 which is about a hundred pound cheaper than I've seen fully opened and used sets go for.

Looking forward to building it so the Falcon and Slave 1 have company. :-)

UCS Falcon on the way. :)

Me too! Just bought one, although it was used, for 750 AUD with all the spare parts! Was a pain to carry back home though.

I caved in and ordered 75222 Betrayal at Cloud City. It was on sale for €250 (RRP is €350 here) so that's a better deal. Especially looking forward to the figs.

I just said "f*** it" and ordered the head, helmet, torso and legs from LEGO for free.  The PDF instructions have the proof of purchase number.  No questions asked, those four pieces are all in the same bag, so missing pieces worked.  There are 2 bag number 1's.

75526 Elite TIE Fighter Pilot for 50% off at Target.  My wife found it for me.

Most recent purchase I made was for the Death Star Escape set that was recently released. Haven't built it yet however it is one of the better sets released so far this year in my opinion. Always wanted some scenery as opposed to vehicles.

I buy almost every OT-set and honestly, this is one of the most boring sets I've built in the past months. The figs are fantastic, but the built is not at all exciting compared to f.e. Yoda's Hutt and Echo Base Medical Bay.

So unless it has a nice discount you'd say it's not really worth it? Because I was still on the line about it, it looks good on paper (or screen) but I wanted an opinion from the physical point of view.
Anyway, last purchase was a lucky find at a flea market, a used 8083 Hoth battlepack (w/o box) for 18€.

Bought the new droid escape pod, the new stormtrooper helmet is really a meh, would have preferred the old helmet. The backpack on the back of the sandtrooper also is oversized, so i think I need to modd it.

Got a used 10179 Millennium Falcon for $450 including box and instructions. 99.9% complete, just missing a few small pieces :sweet:. Pretty happy with it, but unsure if I will keep due to space reasons.

I just bought my first two Star Wars sets, 

xWing 75218 $65

Tie Fighter 75211 $50

Thought these were two were a good place to start!
