    Aussie sales! Share the news of LOCAL sales!

    75097 Star Wars Advent Calendar picked up for $29 at Kmart in Minto NSW. I had to scan it twice to make sure it was true, very good price. I was on my motorcycle and I could only buy one copy as i didn't have enough room in my bag for two so I only picked up one. Might go back fo another one this week if they are still available at that price.

    A half ton of Lego

    What a collection, that makes mine look like a few bags of elemnts, I have collection evny. Without full set list and competion rates its very hard to price. What is the guy willing to take? if you can get it for $5 per lb its okay. on a bulk collection that big I would try to barging down another dollar or two per lb.

    Aussie sales! Share the news of LOCAL sales!

    I went to Big w on the weekend and spent a bit. I wanted the Quick E Mart but both stores I vistited did not have them, sold out already. They both had the Simpsons house so I asked the manager if I could get the house for the same prices as the Quick E Mart and he said yes and got it for $268. Still not as good as 20% off but a saving is a saving. I also picked up the new falcon and Tie Fighter and I scanned my Woolworhts card and it offered me another $20 for a Star Wars promotion. Allup I paid for $521. One guy at the Big W store said 'If its worth it' to LAYBY sets to make sure you have them avaliable and when the 20% sale is on cancel the Layby for $12 and then buy all the sets for 20% off. Could be worh it for those rare expesive sets like the Simpsons and UCS. More than the discount it makes sure the set is avalble when you want to buy it. I also poped into Target to grab some of those Lego Movie sets at a 30% discount, Bennies Spaceship was a steal at $104. Also picked up Meatal Beards Duel, Bad cops persuit and Emmets Constuct-o-mech. At 30% off I should have got them all. They had 76023 The Tumbler and almost bought that but might do my layby trick.
  4. Hay guys, I was wondering if there was anyone out there in the SW Lego universe that has a up to date price guide? I can go to bricklink and look at the average price sets and figs sell for and write them down but dont have the time. It would be nice to be able to refrence a guide so see what your collection is worth (brickset only dose RRP and not current price), both sets and figures. I would love this to see if purchases are worth it compired to their current value when buying second hand sets. Its also nice to put a real figure on your collection for insurance purposes. I know that Could City Boba Fett is the most expensive fig on the merket fetching up to $200 for 1 minifig alone. I would love to have a list of minifigs from most expensive to least to know which one to hang onto. If anyone has any guides, knows wehre to find them or would like to start one keep this thred going. Surly someone has done the hard work and put somthing like this together.
  5. Apart from Lego I want a FX lightsaber. Here I am showing it off as a Christmas ornament. Thanks Cop Mike for the awesome raffle again.

    MOC Jango Fett minifig

    That is an awesome creation to be built when your only 10. As Brickdoctor said its old school with the blockyness (perfectionist try to go smooth and stud-less) but pretty accurate. Welcome back from your dark ages. I did notice he is missing the brown line down his butt

    Contest Turtle Contest - Discussion Thread

    I'm interested if the printed eye elements are OK or not? I just keep away from any printed or licensed part as this is how I interpreted the rules, and to make sure I was not disqualified at all. Plenty of people are using them and they are a great printed element but a lot of people are going to be disappointed if they are not allowed.

    Contest Turtle Contest - Discussion Thread

    Looking through the great entries so far I have noticed that a few people are using Printed and Licensed parts as well as making the turtles larger than the 8x8 footprint (height excepted), people need to read the rules carefully. Not to take anything away from the their builds as some are amazing, people need to be aware that they will be disqualified from the finial voting. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED! If you unsure about your build read the rules again very carefully, double check your creation. If your still unclear read though this topic if you question has been answered and if all else fails ask the question in this thread.

    I have read through the posts and im still a little unsure if we can have wapons on our turtle? I asume we can as other members have posted weapons and there has been no commnets about them.

    What was the last movie you watched?

    Finally the Lego Movie has come to Australian shores. I watched it in 3D on Satuerday night and its the best movice I have seen in years. I tryed to keep away from all the reviews so it didnt spoil the movie for me and im glad I did. So many funny puns and lego refrences. Im glad to see Star Wars making the cut after they where not included in the master builders (the space worm eating them was awesome). For anyone reading this forum must have a love of Lego and is a must see for all, you wont be disapointed. Toy Story again but in Lego. Your so right Artanis I, I will see you there on tight megablocks Tuesday.

    [75059] Sandcrawler

    New Sandcrawler is a much better improvement over the last one. As a set I own the predecessor was a good set for its time. TLG have done a wonderful job of recreating this iconic vehicle. The colours are much better and has a vast improvement in playability. Not exactly a UCS but price and part count qualify for UCS. New figs are a great addition to any star wars set, I'm sick of repeats across multiple sets. I'm interested to see the new instructions format, and are they going to be bind, ring or plain booklet? The new Jawa's look good with 2 versions but no capes? Luke's head seem off with too many lines and what's that mole doing there above his lip??? And why does Luke come with a lightsaber? The new treadmill is an improvement from the last. If the price does not stop me buying this set I will adding this to my collection ASAP. looking at over $500 AUS for it its going to take a big chunk from my wallet.

    Feeding time

    Hi guys Ive been working on my entry over the weekend, put in over 24 hours work into this so far and its not finished (finding parts is killing me , I need to sort my elements out better). My work is not the best but is getting better with each build. Here is a sneek peek at whats to come. Just a test shot to see if the lighting a feel is right. It shouldnt be hard to guess what is going on in the rest of the scene. So I have ran out of parts and time but here is my scene Happy New Years everyone, all the best and keep bricking in 2012 Edit: Add new pics

    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    Hey bjorn77, I would pick this up is you can get it at $150. I bought it when it came out and was very pleased with the build and final product. I was only disappointed with the lack of functions as when they announced that R2 is coming to AFOL's in UCS form I was expecting power functions or at least a sound brick. But alas we didn't get it . Once built I enjoyed the build process with interesting techniques and as Fuppylodders said its a nice display size and dose look great out on display. I own over 100 SW Lego sets and this is one of my favourite, only UCS R2 and the UCS Imperial Shuttle are on display and the rest are packed away in storage. Hope this helps make your decision.

    Zenith - Old Republic escort cruiser

    Looks sweet Bob, how often do you actually build with physical bricks? From memory most of you builds are in LDD.

    Clone AT RT MOC

    Nice MOC DarthTwoShedsJackson. The scale looks great but there are little thing that arent just right like the front of the cockpit. The use of snot is nice and seems to work well for this build, even though the porportions are a little off.

    [MOC] Micro B-wing & Y-wing

    Nice additions Beaver. With the Flipper element and the claw, it may not look the best but can you fit two flippers together to get the claw to hold them both? BTW for the life of me I have never seen the Buzz wing element before and was very interested for find out waht this peice this was. I love the B-wing, and that element was just right for it, I can imagin how you felt once you found it.

    Star Destroyer Bridge WIP-MOC

    Looks promising DarthTwoShedsJackson. I created a simple Ventor bridge back in 2012 to show the Emperors new weapon. I like how the windows are shaping up. My build looked terrible from the out side and was only made to be seen from the interior. My main problem as always is part selection and tying to create what you want out of a limited element range. Good luck and cant wait to see the final MOC.

    A MOC idea

    Hi CheifPie, I recall Ninja Nin posted [MOC] Trandoshan Hunting Lodge back in August 2011. You can have a look at Ninja Nin's to get some ideas. Nice idea if you can pull it off as nice a Ninja Nin's. The addition of the new heads would be great.

    [MOC] Technic Rebel Snowspeeder

    Nice little modifications, the colour looks better now. The first photo I needed to double take as looking on my phone it looked like a screen shot from the movie, Well Done.

    71006 The Simpsons House (Press Release)

    I need this set, finally Blocko, oh I mean Lego and Simpson's are married.

    [LDD MOC] 71,000 piece, 13-foot Super Star Destroyer

    WOW! That is very impressive. If this could be converted to real bricks it would make one hell of a display. Good luck with your fund-raising.
