What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

Recommended Posts

Had a stressful week so I felt like treating myself with a Lego set today. I was gonna get a few more 501st sets but didn’t find any. Instead, I got the “Knights of Ren Transport Ship”, or Night Buzzard, and saved 20% on it. Now, I just need two more Knights of Ren to complete the set.

I've just bought two more 501st Legion Clone Troopers Sets, making a total of six. :sweet:

I've just ordered two T-16 Skyhopper vs Bantha Microfighters (75265) sets.

I plan to use the Tusken Raider minifigures & the Banthas, combined with the Mandalorian Encounter on Tatooine (75299) set in a display. I don't currently own any Tusken Raider minifigures, so I'll have three in total for the that. The Banthas will look cool I think. Maybe a couple of Jawas in the background would be nice with that too. I don't have any Jawas at the moment though.

I can't see myself being able to use the T-16 Skyhopper builds & the Pilot minifigures in any displays to be honest though. The T-16 Skyhopper Pilot minifigures look really good though!

I'm also collecting two more 501st Legion Clone Troopers Sets (75280) from the same shop tomorrow, these are just for the minifigures really. I don't need anymore AT-RTs or BARC Speeders. I'm planning ahead & purchasing the Clones for a Republic Gunship at some point in the future. The Battle Droids will be added to the ranks of the Separatist Droid army in my main 501st battle display. 

I like the idea of converting one of my current BARC Speeders by adding a sidecar, having seen some nice examples on YouTube. This will look cool alongside my three other current BARC Speeders.

The remaining Lego pieces from the Clone Troopers Sets & the T-16 Skyhopper builds can then be used to try & build something myself. I'm not very creative though, lol.

Tuskens are dirt cheap on bricklink, I'm trying to restrain myself from ordering 10 more for $20 from one seller..

There's some good videos and posts here on modding the Barcs and AT-RTs to minifigure scale, too.

Congrats! It’s truly an underrated set, and a welcome update.

I was lucky enough to get a copy of the Nebulon-B, and just received a shipping notification today.

I need to buy a few more Tusken Raiders from Bricklink. I also need to buy some Stormtroopers & Death Troopers, as they will be great for another variation on a Mandalorian display.

Fab, I'll check out the modding posts & videos for BARC Speeders & AT-RTs. :classic:

o Almost forgot I finally ordered my Disney Castle since its available again on Lego.com and plus the double points and two gifts you get It felt like it was a decent deal.

SW Brickheadz: Mando and the child, Leia, Luke and Yoda, Young Solo & Chewie, Boba Fett, white stormtrooper

i think next year I'll build the MOCs: Luke snowspeeder outfit, a tie pilot and Ahsoka to complete the shelf

 

I didn't get Kylo Ren, kind of disappointing with his hood...

Last week, after 15 years, I finally got some jedi starfighters:

9498 Saesee Tiin's Jedi Starfighter (second hand and incomplete, had to bricklink some parts and Saesee Tiin)

75135 Obi-Wan's Jedi Interceptor (second hand)

75281 Anakin's Jedi Interceptor (new)

The latest anakin's interceptor seems better than the previous one which is same generation as Obiwan's 75135

 

i was wondering if i should wait for Lego to update Obiwan's to have 2 consistent ships

would you mind posting a picture of both next to each others ? Thanks :)

Honestly, with my baby girl growing, she can now reaches everything that is about the height of a table or most furniture and all my shelves and other storage/display are already full.

I recently got rid of my UCS X-Wing, Y-Wing and Snowspeeder and recovered a lot of space. The only one left was the MF, it was "stored" built on top of my bedroom furniture, I couldn't even look at it and it was getting dust.

It is very heartbreaking for me because it was the very first ship of my Lego SW collection and it took almost a year for me to build, but I will mod the 75257 so that i will be detailed and compensate my loss of my UCS. Now with the extra money, I can save and wait for 2021 sets to make the collection grow again. I am also releaved i was able to sell it at a fair price and especially be able to simply sell it due to the legal limitations of the semi-lockdown in France. The guy droves 3 hours to come. Hopefully he was allowed thanks to his business status.

I can understand of course your many reasons. That's for me the same way, the MF is my first lego since 25 years and it gave me the possibility to play again with Lego. Then I bought many others set just for the idea to mod it or to create background environnement. I'm in France also and I know the situation. The MF is very searched by customers and I would bought another one during fisrt sanitary confinement and I discovered that there was many prices and many scams around this set on LeBonC... Good to see that some classified ads come from honnest people! Can I ask you how many did you sold it? I would say around 600 to 700€ without mods but with the box.
