  1. I'm getting back into Lego the past year and a half after a semi-hiatus during the 2010s and I find myself lacking basic pieces in the colors I need since they just weren't plentiful when I was a kid, and most of what I've bought as an AFOL has highly specialized pieces in models I want to keep together #11022 Space Mission looks promising for filling out my collection but it barely covers dark red, dark blue, and dark green which I need lately. So which sets would be good for stocking up on BASIC bricks, plates, and tiles in those colors, without resorting to bricklink or pick a brick? also curved stuff in both light and dark grey?

    Reselling vs Scalping?

    idk, I've found myself trying to get sets I wanted but missed lately. Winter Village sets are gonna rise and fall in demand at the same time every year, and retire shortly after. So to buy a bunch up at that time would be bad. I feel way less crappy about buying a bunch of 501st battle packs in the middle of its shelf life than when it's about to retire and people are rushing to get it. THAT feels more like artificially affecting the demand far more than just getting several when they're still being produced but readily available

    Reselling vs Scalping?

    Obviously there are those of us dying to get our hands on sets we wanted as a kid and willing to pay the prices. But.... At what point does "collecting" mint sets bleed into scalping? The way I figure it, if a set's still on the market and being produced, it's not like a ticket where a limited number are available. The 501st battle pack and Bonsai eventually adjusted the supply to the demand for them. But still. I'm at the point where I should start saving and "investing" and I'd rather do so with something I love than play the stock market game which morally repulses me. But my thoughts on saving sets in mint condition isn't much better.
  4. Does the moon featured in the recent promotional set use a sticker, or is it a print?

    Mini/micro diorama tips?

    Hey, after building the May the Fourth homestead set and hearing about a rumored 2021 set, I'm getting into mini/micro builds. I'm ready to build a Death Star diorama for the original trilogy but I'm struggling with ideas for the prequels and sequels. Coruscant would be more grey next to the Death Star, and I don't need more desert if I have Tatooine on display as well. Christophsis would be just another city and trans blue would be hard to find in the quantities needed. As for the sequel trilogy, they don't stay put very much. Jakku and Pasaana are yet another desert on top of Tatooine and maybe Geonosis. Krayt and Starkiller Base would look a lot like Hoth which I might do. Takodana, D'qar, and the jungle from 9 I don't remember the name of don't have enough important events. So what are 1 or 2 planets from the prequels and sequels that would look different enough from Tatooine and the Death Star that would make sense to have battles raging overhead? and please keep your "prequels/sequels suck" comments to yourself. They're irrelevant and the OT is my priority anyway.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Officially, a few 501st battle packs, the X wing, and the tatooine homestead from May the 4th. From Bricklink, bObA fEtT'S sTaRsHiP (I understand the name change and it always rubbed me the wrong way as a kid but still) that I got with no minifigs for $27! (I have Mando and prefer the older minifigs so have a Boba and carbonite han on their way)
  11. Hey, I've been replaying Lego Star Wars 1 on PS2 for the first time in probably about 13 years, and staring at the superkit Tantive IV. If you don't remember, getting True Jedi status in every level got you a piece, and completing it would unlock the bonus A New Hope level. Anyway, I've seen only two builds of it outside the game. One looked like a digital render and the other was part of the massive Dexter's Diner MOC someone made. Anyway not the mini one that came with the UCS star destroyer, nor the one from the planet set, will do it for me. I want that chonky boi from the game anyone know what pieces I have to get/have instructions or do I have to meticulously take notes as I do another playthrough?

    Jango Fett's Starship (v 75222)

    So beautiful. Nearly every day I lament how much Lego snubs the PT and attack of the clones specifically. Jango's S1 and the speeder chase haven't been released since the movie came out. None of Padme's ships, no Lars homestead, no Geonosis Arena or droid factory or Jedi Temple or Padme's apartment or Senate building. And yet we have so many T16 Skyhoppers, Imperial Landing Craft, and Flash Speeders that were in the background for a few seconds each. Anyway well done. it looks really great!!

    Odds of Vintage Car returning?

    Good to know it was out of stock. I suspect the dickens and mclaren sets returned only to make space for the UCS gunship and vidiyo stuff etc releasing 8/1.
  14. title says it all. With the Christmas Carol set returning, and the McLaren polybag before that, having been mostly on the sidelines of Lego interest for the last 10 years, I was wondering what the chances of the Ideas Vintage Car gift with purchase are, and what the purchase requirement was last time. thanks!

    Parting out modulars/Bricks n Pieces?

    right but I mean.. how would I know what I have and don't have afterwards, without counting every single piece yet again
