    Bought my first two new Lego Star Wars sets: the X-Wing and A-Wing. Going to build them and keep them at work :)

    Very glad to be back into the Lego buying mood! I got my nieces some of the Lego Friends sets and was quite jealous of them.

    I'm going to stick mainly to the Original Trilogy Star Wars vehicles and sets.

    I've promised myself I'm going to stick with technic and that's that.
    But I keep looking at that X-Wing...

    Be curious to see what you think of the A-Wing when you've built it, I_C. That one slipped under my radar.

    @boo It calls to you. It wants to be yours... Let the force move you...

    I need to know enough people with these kits to play the new-ish X-wing miniatures game scaled up with lego...

    @boo Yeah I love the Technic Lego and Architecture sets but they're a bit too pricey for me...

    I'll let you know what I think of the finished A-Wing and post pictures. That'll be my first Lego build (outside of video games!) for years.

    The latest batch of Star Wars sets are very detailed. I'll be picking up the current Millenium Falcon at some point too. My desk at work will soon be full of finished Lego models! \o/

    I have to first version of the X-Wing. Compared it to the recent one and I have to say they have improved it in every way.

    I had that!!! Geez, if I knew it was worth so much now, I would've kept it myself rather than giving it to a family friend years ago.

    Just bought this:

    Monster Fighters - Werewolf

    and this:

    Tie Bomber

    I think I have a serious Lego problem. Off to Orlando in two weeks and I have a long Lego list to buy.

    I don't go a bundle on the 'planets' in that series, but I think the mini ships are uber-cool!

    Bloody Hell - no idea it'd be worth that much! Have one at home - 100% pieces, although no box.

    £390 is his starting price. Nobody's actually bid on it yet.
    It's mint - all the parts, all the figs, train still works, box is in vgc.

    Even if you've just got the pieces though, it's probably still worth well into three figures.

    Got my blind bags today Boo

    So, in exchange for Ski lady, cheerleader and swimmer lady, I got..

    (drumroll)
    Ski lady
    Cheerleader
    SANTA!!

    Oh well, it was a bit of a lugh opening them up, and at least I got Santa (wrong time of the year, but given that you're the Secret Santa boss, I guess it was fate :)

    You're kidding!
    Two out of three were the same!!! Nightmare!

    On a similar topic. Well, exactly the same topic. Do you reckon there's enough interest for a Lego Minifig swapsies thread?

    I might set one up and see how it goes.

    Well, thanks to the amazing @boo getting me this Lego set for my belated EG Secret Santa, I've decided to use my PlayTrade funds to buy myself this Pick-Up truck!

    I picked up the mini AT ST. Really is a good set. Probably one of my favourites so far.

    dear god the space one is up at 390, my airport one has more parts and more tracks, on the other hand I have a horrible feeling if I did sell it a collector would just hide it away and no kid would ever get to play with it again. That is something I couldn't in good conscience ever do.

    I'm jonesing for some new Lego. The kid has a bunch of sets to build from Xmas but I'd feel guilty if I started one of those. The Imperial Shuttle is sitting there waiting but I'm in two minds about even building that. There are so many new sets out there but I don't want to be paying full price when I know they will wind up on sale at 20-30% off soon enough.

    But damn if I don't want to put some plastic bricks together :(

    @Khanivor I know what you mean. Woke up early today and I started to think about buying some Lego later. I really fancy this:

    Ghost Train

    Lego is a relatively new thing for me - not too sure why I didn't get into it sooner.

    I must admit though that building the Death Start kinda put me off putting together a large model again. Even though the end result is amazing I found it boring to build.

    Building Vampyre's Castle had me smiling from ear to ear!

    I really lost control yesterday. I dug out my vintage Star Wars collection and ended up ordering some Legos online... Jabbas palace, Rancors pit and some smaller Ewok and C-3PO & R2-D2 sets. Felt like a kid again.

    Single malt whisky might have had a slight effect there.

    @funkyshaker
    Like the Ghost Train! Just read the blurb - didn't realise bits of it glowed in the dark. Cool!

    @Lukree
    Now, now, sir. Drunk in charge of a credit card is a very serious offence...
    The Palace and the Pit set go really well together.
    Although they don't please everybody.

    I've been stocking up on LEGO over the last few years and have loads unbuilt just waiting for my oldest to be old enough to play with the kids. I'll build them though.

    I'm hoping to win some money so that I can order more MBA kits from the us with good consciousness....

    I've been playing with Lego with the boy as soon as I could trust him with to not put it in his mouth. Also helps that I got a load of Lego for my thirtieth birthday last March  :-)

    So, my Lego obsession has taken hold again. Wanted some more Monster Fighters kits but couldn't find the train.

    Ended up getting the Technic F1 car which also makes some truck thing.

    Will post some pics once completed.

    Technics F1 car all done. Great build - took me about 5 hours and it was my first Technic model.

    If anyone's looking for a cheap 'fix', John Lewis are doing the Technic Moto Cross bike for £14.95, vs the RRP of about £25.

    Out of stock online at the mo, but bound to be some more in stock soon.
