What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

Recommended Posts

just built the 75375 Millenium Falcon, the set is absolutely beautiful and the construction was really fun with nice techniques. So far, probably one of the most beautiful ships of this size, no stickers at all, well done TLG !

75342 Republic Fighter Tank™, is my latest purchase. + I found a nice mod for it on rebrickable, just need to get the xtra pieces someday.

Took me quite time to decide to get this set.

Got two of the 75387: Boarding the Tantive IV set with a discount (54.99€ >>> 42.99€) at Smyths today. I really like how they build the doors using the snot technique. And finaly got my first rebel fleet troopers + Antilles! Would trade Fives for any of the other anniversary minifigs though.

I also got my first parts in the new reddish orange color. And i must say - i like it! The color really pops but is not as glaring as i though it would be.

Picked up the UCS Republic Gunship over the weekend out in the Middle East for a decent deal at the store in Bahrain. 140BD wasn’t cheap but a heck of a lot better than the secondary market.

Bought the Rex microfighter: made me super happy in ways most lego sets don’t - I didn’t feel guilty buying and building it. A rare treat for someone who sees his afol status as an addiction/affliction.

Posting this to sort of help me think while sharing LOL:

I bought Yavin, the Gunship, and the Phase 2 Clone battlepack all on May the 4th and I structured the purchase of the three sets in a way so that I got two Troop Carriers promos.

I am strongly considering returning my purchases and GWP's (even though I love the deal on the gunship I got). I been thinking, Ninjago is just too good, and LotR is going HARD, and I don't think I like the Star Wars franchise anymore. And this timing is weird because I have always wanted a Captain Rex and all these cool clones. Not a fan of LEGO's heavier focus of display-focused Star Wars sets the past few years, but otherwise, LEGO has been killing it with Star Wars.

Watch me give up the theme and within like 3 years we get a Jango Slave-1, a Geonosis Arena, and Endor MBS set! LOOLLLLL! I'll totally regret it then!

When I came out of my dark ages, I was lucky and found great SW sets at even greater discounts. Bought them all then freaked out and returned them all. I was worried about going down that rabbit hole. I managed to stay for a long time but was eventually sucked in, missing out on quite a few sets I actually liked. The TLG price increases of recent years made me regret not buying what I thought was too expensive at the time. Reality warp and lego maths now make me look back on it and think they were decent deals compared to today’s standards. The point I am making is that staying away from the SW theme might not be that easy so think twice before passing on sets you might regret later on. The sweet spot is to selectively pick what sets to indulge on, a challenge when so many good sets are released across themes!

Today i bought the 75373: Ambush on Mandalore Battle Pack. The Imperial Commando is such a cool minifigure. I really like it! Although i noticed small differences in the printing between the two minifigs.

I also got 2 of the Luke Skywalker mech for the printed tile and rebel flight suit. I feel kinda dumb for falling into this trap :iamded_lol:

Finally pulled the trigger on the Fang Fighter and Tie Interceptor. The latter in particular is a great addition to my fleet, I’ve been waiting for years to find something to complement Major Vonreg’s TIE, one of my first SW ships. I was worried they were too different, but they actually match quite well and I think it’s believable that they were originally the same type of ship and Vonreg modified his quite heavily. I might still modify one of them to match the wing angles of the other . . but not sure which . . hrm.

After not buying any Star Wars sets all year, I cracked in early June:

75372 - Clone Trooper and Battle Droid Battle Pack
75373 - Ambush on Mandalore Battle Pack
75379 - R2-D2
75383 - Darth Maul's Sith Infiltrator
75387 - Boarding the Tantive IV
75386 - Paz Vizsla and Moff Gideon Battle
75391 - Captain Rex's Y-Wing Microfighter (gah, this should've been a playscale set...)

And thankfully the Leicester Square Lego Store still had abundant copies of the Battle Droid Carrier, which was a really nice bonus! Now I await the summer wave :blush:

Rex current only comes as a minifigure in the ginormous UCS Venator class star destroyer or in a £12 mircofighter. For good recent sets I would say

- the Ghost

- the croissant guard gunship 

- the Clan Kryze v Gideon's super commandos Mandalorian Battlepack

- the Artoo set  ( it is slightly smaller but imo  it makes the UCS seem obsolete in comparison)

- the Mini AT-TE

- the holiday special set

- the Gideon Bunker battle

- the CIS v Republic Battlepack

- this one I haven't gotten yet but it looks good and I plan to.

- the T-6 jedi shuttle

I was gifted the Cap’n Rex Microfighter recently. Build is nice, but I wish we got a playscale version instead, but this way we get what we really want. The Rex minifig rocks, plain and simple; adding a few custom parts to it, though, makes it all the better looking.

I also visited the LEGO Store, and, while I didn’t pick up any sets, managed to acquire a couple of X-Wing Luke keychains to upgrade my current minifig.

Lastly, I found out that Target had the Cody helmet for $39. I started the year with no plans to buy him, but that discount was too good not to pass up. He looks good built up, and I’m glad I didn’t spend too much money on him.
