    Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    So i am limiting my upcoming purchase to a single rogue one set and would like some input from people who have purchased both the U-wing and the Y-wing. In your opinion, which set is the best? BTW, i do not own any of the past Y-wings. please help!

    fake chinese sets and my 2 cents as a resident of China.

    Some stores sell fake sets yes. Sometimes side by side with LEGO sets! 99% percent of the time though I buy fake sets online on taobao.com out of convenience. And I always buy LEGO sets from taobao. LEGO sets in the stores are just too expensive. As for the AFOL community, I wouldn't know. From the amount of LEGOs sold on taobao I would say its big but I'm the only one in my circle of friends who collects them. :P

    What do you do for a living?

    I'm an English teacher in China :)
  4. Hi everyone, I'm a canadian AFOL who has been living in China for over a decade and, surprise surprise, I have bought fake, look-a-like LEGO sets. The biggest attraction for me and for many I suspect is the price. Since LEGO does not ship to China, that means most of the time I buy sets from taobao with never a discount :( So I have succumbed once in a while and bought fakes from decool, bela, and another name I don't remember. from my experience, decool has always been of disappointing quality. bela on the other hand, has minifigures that are (sometimes) almost the same quality as LEGO. Their sets on the other hand is like the roll of a dice. I've bought sets that were just fine, maybe 9/10 compared to LEGO quality, while another set I'd have rated at 5/10... So now if I do buy fakes, I stick to bela and only to minifigures such as stormtrooper army builds and such. for anything bigger than battle packs, I stick to LEGO :) I do wish that LEGO could ship to me though. With 30,000 yuans in LEGO in 4 years and no intention of stopping, my wallet could use the help. :P
  5. So my next purchase is coming up and I have it down to two sets; either the detective's office or the temple of airjitzu. I have 4 modular sets and a few ninjago sets. I really can't decide! I would like to ask anyone who has both the detective's office and the temple of airjitzu their opinion. Can anyone help me please? opinions would be greatly appreciated :)

  9. i love my 7965 falcon. while i also like the 7964 frigate, the falcon has more inside room for playability.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    I just bought the republic frigate for 850CNY online. It was the cheapest I could find, I'm not sure of the exchange rate at the moment.. I think 130-140 USD or something.. How much does it sell for in the US? anyway I haven't opened it yet-too busy. but later today I will :) Can't wait!
