  1. I managed to order one before the site went into a coma, but my credit card hasn't been touched yet. The order status however says "in the warehouse". Is this strange? With all the panicky clicking-about I'm not sure if I entered my credit card info correctly
  2. I got the mail confirming the shipment of my missing piece this morning, asking me to allow 7-10 days for delivery... fair enough! Seeing that it takes so long for pretty much everyone, I shall hereby retract my slightly bummed attitude
  3. Hey, thanks for the replies guys! I somehow missed the part about allowing 21 days on the official site... Kind of a bummer to be honest, it's not like it's an entire big and heavy set box they'd need to ship...
  4. Hello fellows! I habe bought the 10188 Death Star two weeks ago, and unfortunately there was a part missing. The set is supposed to have 19x 4211616 and 20x 4211617 (it's the big 6x12 light grey angled plates, which make up most of the floor plates around the edges), but what I got was 18x 4211616 and 21x 4211617, so I'm missing one plate with the cutoff on the left side. I have used the missing parts formular on lego.com about this, and I also got a reply mail saying that they received my request, and will send me another mail as soon as the part is shipped. That was 10 days ago. I haven't gotten any mail since then, let alone the missing part. I was wondering if some of you have used this way to contact Lego about missing/wrong parts, and how long it has taken in their case for some reaction or the delivery. Mistakes like this can of course happen, but I don't really know where the problem is in sticking a single part into an envelope and send it across Europe... I would've hoped that Lego was a bit quicker with solving such issues. For a set that costs around €400, it is more than annoying not being able to finish it.
  5. Hello, my name is Patrick, and I'm a relapsed Legoholic! This is my first post in here, so hello to all! This is an astounding board, I'd never have guessed that there is such a huge amount of AFOLs around! After having disregarded LEGO for over 20 years, I somehow ended up having too much time and money last year, and - I don't even remember why exactly - I stumbled over Lego set descriptions somewhere on the net. I was flabbergasted over the development and diversification, that Lego has gone through since I last played with it when I was a kid. So I ended up buying some technic models (I loved the advancements that have happenend here!), namely the 42009 crane, the 8110 Unimog and the 9398 crawler, as well as some smaller models. My gf and I also bought some Architecture models of places we've been to (I'm blessed with a more than understanding gf!). And finally, being a huge SW fan (especially Ep IV-VI), I've come to check out the incredible amount of models that LEGO has made depicting this franchise. I absolutely loved the detail which went into the UCS models, so I ended up giving myself the 10240 X-Wing and 10227 B-Wing as a christmas gift. Being relatively new, they were still affordable. I paid €400 for both, but I also got a €50 gift certificate for that purchase, which I used last week, to get me the 10188 Death Star (Subtracting the gift certificate, I paid only €320 for that, which is pretty good imo!) I can't start to explain what fun I had building all of these sets, but I do prefer the stud-build of the "more regular" sets to the new studless liftarms in the technic models! The Death Star was probably the most fun of all, especially since there are so few repetitive steps. Also, the detail which went into depicting all the iconic scenes is incredible! I'd absolutely love to get all of the UCS models, but the amounts some of them are being traded for on the net are somewhat ridiculous! I'll probably still get the relatively cheap ones, or let them be given to me as presents, but sets that go into the four digit range are probably way out of my league It's an absolute pity, because my collectors nerve has been triggered by these beautiful sets! I could go on and on now, but the fact is: I'm back to loving it!
  6. Hello, my name is Patrick, and I'm a newborn AFOL! I love Star Wars, so I ended up giving myself the 10240 X-Wing and 10227 B-Wing as a christmas gift.
