What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

Recommended Posts

I sold it for 650€ built with all its minifigs and its box in perfect condition. The buyer told me he saw many ads but the box was scratched or has dents or with damaged white boxes inside.

i believe that this kind of purchase should be done on-site. This gives the possibility for the buyer to check everything by himself. Ads on leboncoin are mostly not to say all scams. A guy is even showing a picture of a brown box with a white sticker saying Lego 75192 :hmpf_bad:

we ended up spending quite some time chatting about lego SW and legos in general...

he was happy about the fair price and condition and so was I because thanks to that sale I can keep my collection growing with smaller sets...

 

i can’t wait to receive my 75257 and order extra pieces to improve it.

i guess giving up on UCS sets is a compromise to make when budget is tight and when one wants to keep buying new sets.

@macaron35 good price of course, and clearly what I supposed :wink:

On my side, all is turning around this UCS set, since I'm 40 yo, I'm now interesting by very accurate set, and this one was clearly a dream, many years after I saw the 10179 set. then I bought many and many other set ind second hand market just to have pieces to improve this one set. What is interesting for me is equally the scale rendering, 75257 set will be a little bit small faced to minifigs. I have a friend who was offered an UCS imperial star destroyer (75252), it was fun to help him build it but now, it's hard to have more fun with this set, we only can create some micro ships but impossible to create an interior in minifig scale... My friend is disappointed because when he has to present his set to anyone, he only can talk about exterior design... nothing can be opened, no extra feature.

that's my opinion but I clearly understand yours lol!

And my luck is to have a room for my different passion (mangas, retrogaming), si I red you were missing place, that's hard to play with it in this case.

Hope you'll be happy with your future set and don't hesitate to give feedbacks on it, I will follow your topic!

I guess i will display the minifigs lined up next/in front of the ship and complete the set with figs from the 75192 set thanks to bricklink (they are not cheap btw)

 

just turned 41 myself ;)

i think 40 you make the purchase and at 41 you have second thoughts and resell it :laugh:

 

anyway there are a few nice mods of the 75257 to make it more detailed than the official set :)

Just picked up the TIE helmet from Argos (thanks for the heads up @azzer86!).

No problem. I was on the fence about the helmets but couldn't say no to that price.

I was going to pick mine up Wednesday on my day off but that's the first day shops reopen so will be avoiding the retail park just in case it's chaos...

75270 arrived yesterday. I built it, and it is a cool little set! Definitely overpriced, but as I had none of the minifigures, it was a worthy purchase for me. The hut looks very good, specially enclosed and next to the landspeeder I built. I wonder if an expansion of the hut is in the plans for LEGO. The back of the kitchen not only is open, but has clips outside, just waiting for the bathroom of the hut.

UPDATE: Bespin Luke is officially in my grasp :)

Also, as I found out, 75093 Vader looks much better with the legs from 75279 Vader.

I started building my newly purchased AT-AT (75288) set yesterday.

It's a lovely build, especially after having not built anything significant for a couple of months. :classic:

Out of curiosity could you please let us know if the legs are sliding down once you’ve completed it

I bought myself the 501st set and got gifted the AAT for Christmas. 

Immediately halved the length of the gun on the latter, but on the whole they're both fantastic to have. Even if I mainly care about the minifigs.

75105-1 Millennium Falcon

75292-1 The Razor Crest

75237-1 Tie Fighter Attack

The Mandalorian has got me hooked on Star Wars again. Im thinking of remove my Lego City and go all in and create some Star Wars landscape instead so I need Star Wars Lego, I'll try and MOC my way creating the landscape (Let's hope I got alot of sand and gray bricks :))

Nice! The falcon and crest are both great sets, especially if you're just getting back into star wars.

 

Alongside about 1200 parts for some mocs I'm working on, I got the duel on mustafar for christmas, and honestly it looks much better in person, the lava isn't as cartoonish as it seems online. Still not enough to save it from the parts heap, though, as it's very much more of a play set than something that'd look good on display. The figure updates are nice, though, so i'd recommend it if you want a new obi-wan and anakin.

Trouble on Tatooine just arrived today. I ordered from Lego online store last January, 1st. 10 days, not bad given the problems with the snow here in Spain. Finally I have a proper Mando in Beskar.

Found this sitting on the Walmart shelves for 70 bucks I wasn't sure if I wanted to get it cuz I don't collect Star wars but I thought for the price and the parts it'd be great for MOCs in the future... Not that I've made an MOC in about 5 years lol

Found out the local store has the 501st BP at 25% off, so I finally caved in and bought another two. The temptation to buy more is strong.
