What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

Recommended Posts

Confession. I found a Cantina on ebay with a damaged box, starting bid £99. Leaping for joy, I placed the bid. 

Then I realised its not the new one. It's the 2014 one. :facepalm: 

So far..... no other bids. 

Remember when Leonard bids on the time machine? That's how I feel.

Betrayal At Cloud City appeared on the UK S@H yesterday for all of 5 seconds and I managed to snag it. Full price, but with the mini robots, a City people pack and double VIPs it was worth it considering it is OOS everywhere else and meant to be retired. :excited:

I owned speederbikes with snowtroopers and just purchased and received scout troopers to replace snowtroopers

I felt like it was a better fit with scout than snowtroopers which i will re-use for the Hoth battle and populate the AT-AT (which has 5 seats)

Tantive IV, in what will be probably be my last purchase for a while. Great set and a real looker, although there are a few annoying gaps that could do with being filled in.

Just built the 75288 AT-AT.  Best AT-AT to date by far.  Solid construction (except for maybe some weak hip joints), good proportions, great minifigs, the mobile cannon and speeder bike fit inside...worth the price, IMHO.  Nicely done, LEGO.

A huge amount of bricks and parts via LEGO directly to finish some rebricks of known MOCs on my list, like the Dowager Queen, as an extension of my Mos Eisley Cantina and a Working Platform for the area of my showcase, which houses numerous star hunters of the Rebel/Resistance.

I've just completed building the General Grievous's Starfighter (75286) set. It was a lovely build & looks really good in my display. The Airborne Clone Trooper is nice & I needed an Obi Wan minifig.

I have two BARC Speeders to build today from the 501st Legion Clone Troopers (75280) set.

75092 Naboo Starfighter complete including original box for 59 EUR via eBay, LEGO bricks & parts for a working platform to give my starfighters in the showcase the atmosphere of a hangar. Furthermore bricks and parts for another evaporator for my Mandalorian Outpost Diorama (and yes, it will never be finished ... :-))

Been on a jedi starfighter kick lately. Picked up the 2020 Anakin one, Obi's 2016 edition (which I slightly modded to make R4 sit more flush with the wing) the 2012 dark green version which also included a small mustafar duel, and finally the Azure Angel set based on the old clone wars micro series. They compliment each other pretty well. 

Picked up the vulture droid from 2014 too, as well as some more 501st. 

Grievous' ship is next, when I can purchase it for less than $80. I've seen some rather good deals on sealed ones on eBay, might have to jump on one of those soon.

Awaiting for the System version of the aforementioned X-Wing to go on clearance, as well as some other 2020 sets. I might actually go clearance hunting after Christmas this year.

Went to a bigger store in the area hoping for the Razor Crest, but I guess they took the "amazon exclusive" bit seriously. On the other hand I used the 25% off coupon I had and pulled the trigger on the 75257 Millennium Falcon, the first Falcon I ever bought.

It's a great falcon! also very easy to mod to look like ANH if you want to do that.

I bricklinked parts for a cobb vanth custom and some other mandalorians, I'm thinking this'll be the last purchase until christmas, I'm trying to wait until then to pull the trigger on the AT-AT

Indeed it is,  just finished building it. Also having the round rectenna is enough for me, at least for now, to feel like its the OT one. I'll dig up the mods thread on that particular MF for ideas but I don't think I'm gonna change much.
Also the leak of the new Mando set lets my wallet breathe again a bit, being much cheaper way to get Mando and the child without purchasing the Razor Crest =D The Crest stays on the wishlist though

The razor crest is the best set I've gotten since the rogue one wave, I do recommend getting it eventually. Lots of room for mods, but it's very good as-is too.
