    Mine was split as well, but I received both at once. Hope your Destroyer arrives soon!

    The Star Destroyer page is down around the world, even Australia, where it's already available. I checked with region settings.

    LEGO Star Wars 2019 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    So, today I contacted Lego about the Finch Dallow issue, I got mostly the same response as some others about them later updating the set based upon the movie's scenes vs pre-production stuff etc. As far as getting my hands on one, they informed me that while they know the figure is very desired, the limited number they have in their warehouse is for "quality purposes", so they can't send me one, but they hope he makes an appearance in a future set. Quite disappointed I wasn't able to get Finch, but I hope their comment about a future set means something for those of us who want him.

    Well, that didn't work out. They cancelled my order for the parts being out of stock. Hope another way becomes available soon.

    LEGO Star Wars 2019 Set Discussion - READ FIRST POST!!!

    I just tried ordering directly from the missing parts service from Bricks and Pieces. It says out of stock here in the Netherlands as well, so I will have to wait and see what happens next. I will also report back here with my findings.

    What's your recent LEGO Star Wars Purchase?

    Just won a bid on Jango's Slave I, Bounty Hunter Pursuit, Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter and Anakin's Starfighter and Vulture Droid sets, all for just 85,- euros. Alreaddy have Obi-wan's fighter, but I couldn't pass it up for that price !

    MOD: 75032 X-Wing mods

    Looks nice, they should have put a turntable there from the beginning. Also, I hate they didn't include R2-X2's body (his designation according to Wookieepedia http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/R2-X2).

    LEGO Star Wars 2014 Pictures and Rumors

    Those posters, along with another one (don't know of any others, sorry) were given away with a Lego Star Wars purchase at Bart Smit, a toy store in our country (I got two different ones for christmas). The other one shows artwork of the AT-AP and Droid Gunship. They were packaged in cardboard lightsabers. I don't know if they're still around.

    Review 7143 Jedi Starfighter

    Thanks, I indeed am proud of my collection . Regarding the price, It's worth it, especialy if you have some Delta 7-B's to go with it. Or be lucky like me: I got this, 7101 Lightsaber Duel, 7113 Tusken Raider Encounter and 7200/1 Final duel 1 and 2, used but complete, for €45,- . BTW, I never meant to say this is a Delta 7-B, just that it looks good next to them.

    Review 7143 Jedi Starfighter

    A few days ago I bought this set in an online lot of used Star Wars sets. I've been wanting to buy it for a few years, and now I did. Does it live up to expectations? Let's find out! General info Set name: Jedi Starfighter Set number: 7143 Year of release: 2002 Retail price: $20 Pieces: 139 Minifigures: 1.5 Instructions I start with the instructions, as I bought it without box. Front A rather peacefull setting, compared to today's covers. Just the fighter, flying through the asteroid field of Geonosis. No lasers or explosions. Back Yoda, searching the Lego website for news. Much better than the current screaming kid. Random page Clear, easy to follow instructions. I love the stary/computerish background Pieces All 139 pieces, sorted by collor (I appologise for the rather unseeable black). Not too many pieces, mostly white with grays, black and red and some lime green and odd colours. Printed pieces Yes, you heard me right. All of these pieces are printed! Not a single sticker. The good old days. Minifigs Obi-Wan Kenobi This is one of the two sets that has Episode 2 Obi-Wan (not counting next years Gunship). He has long, orangy hair, dito beard and the back then standard Jedi robes. He has a chrome lightsaber and a pair of binoculars. Back Obi doesn't have back printing, or a cape. face closeup His face is exclusive to the set, as in Bounty Hunter Pursuit he didn't have a headset. It's gold with black and gets partially coverd by his hair. R4-P17 The other 'figure' included in this set is the head of R4-P17. It reuses R5-D4's head from the Y-Wing. I don't think lego did good here. R4 is supposed to be dark red with grey accents, not white with red. Build It's not a verry long build, 15 minutes at most. It's 22 steps long It's not verry repetitive exept for the wings. It doesn't use a lot of exiting techniques. 4 Steps Just the bottom plate with some landing gear 8 Steps The bottom is nearlu complete and work is starting on the cockpit. 12 Steps Wing connection point is added, main body done. 14 Steps Wings have been added,finally taking shape. 16 Steps Front has been added. 20 Steps Almost done, just the flag piece and the cockpit piece. 22 Steps The completed set in all it's glory. It looks pretty good. Completed set Front The front of the ship looks good, resembles the real one pretty well Left side You can see the buetifull printed pieces here. Sadly, there's a gap between the cockpit and the ship. Back You can see the engines from this shot. theyre made up of old stule wheels and attatched to the landing gear. Right Mirror immage from the left, except for the republic symbol being replaced by R4. Top A nice triangular shape, the wedge plates line up well. Bottom Verry bare except for the landing gear. Not much to say Playability You can open up the cockpit to fit a minifig inside. Plenty of room in there. Behind the 'seat', there's a spot to place your lightsaber and binoculars. Say hi, Obi-Wan! Ready to face of against Jango's Slave 1 (if only I had one ). You can also fold the landing gear up for swooshing.Sadly, they are a bit wobly and are likely to bend when you place the figure or the cockpit piece on the ship. The engines fold along. Up Down My thoughts Design 8/10: it has a few gaps and wobly landing gear, but overall an accurate portrail of the ship. Build 7/10: it's nothing really new and a little short, but fun. Parts 8/10: a nice array of parts, nothing special, but the fact that everything's printed makes up for that. Price 6/10: the price is quite steep for not a lot of pieces and only one minifig,but they had to print everything, so they get poits for that Minifigs 9/10: what more could you want? You at least get all the necesearry figs. Only drawback is the inaccurate R4-P17 Swooshability 10/10: nothing really falls of, so if you buy Jango's Slave 1, you can have a nice battle overall: 8/10. It's a nice little set with a nice minifigure. I recomend it to anyone who is a fan of Jedi Starfighters or the Republic Fleet or just Ep 2 C&C appreciated. As a parting shot, a picture of this with the Delta 7-B's I have.

    Just bought sets 7101 Lightsaber Duel, 7113 Tusken Raider Encounter, 7143 Jedi Starfighter, 7200 and 7201 Final Duel 1 and 2, all used but complete. I just love those classic figures and those Tuskens are awesome .

    LEGO Star Wars 2013 Pictures and Rumors

    I said it because of some similarities I saw: - She has a doublebladed green lightsaber, like Kira. - She is wearing an outfit you can unlock at level 30 for Kira. - She seems to have a scar on the left of her face, like Kira. None of it is confirmed, but as the Defender was rumoured, a ship she co-pilots, it could be possible.

    That's Kira Karsen, from SWTOR. She goes with the rumoured Defender
