I have slowly weaned myself off Lego collecting but have grabbed some small clearance finds lately. Got the U-wing microfighter for $2 and Elastigirls Rooftop Pursuit for $10 at Target. Just wanted the latter for the minifigs

Went to Walmart and got Underminer's Bank Heist for $5!

The last set I plan to keep MISB/graded has arrived today!

- 75137: Carbon-Freezing Chamber

This concludes my trinity of places that included (the current canon version of) Boba Fett. It is also definitely one I would consider purchasing if reissued. And not because while I had the Sears exclusive Bespin set I would wish for a Han frozen in carbonite. And up until the time they did make one I would literally freeze my "Bespin" Han action figure. :whistling:

You're submitting Lego for grading?
Yup. I have a hard time collecting anything because of the way my anxiety works. Plus I really want to get this part of my 'bucket list' checked off before I work on the more important goals in my life.

Has anyone seen The Arrowhead and Tracker I from The Freemaker Adventures on toy store shelves? I know they are old but I'm hoping to add them to my collection so I can do an episode synopsis/TV show review to tie in with something coming up.

I picked those up last year when they were being clearanced out to make room for the August wave of sets. I've not seen them in stores since then.

They're on clearance at Kroger Marketplace right now, I saw them at one by me yesterday. I don't recall the prices, but I was planning on checking for something else at another store again tomorrow.

On topic, I lucked out and got a second Hogwarts Express from a Facebook Marketplace buy for cheap the other day. It's nice to have a second passenger car and Dementor. I also mirrored the train station build and added it to the stock one. The coal car will be reworked into a caboose or something else to get Power Functions in there.

I picked up a few Lego 2 items this weekend. Benny's space crew and a few blind bag minifigs. My favorite is retired President Business. I love those space guys - it really brings me back to when I had some of the original space sets, before they even had yellow or blue space men.

Crikey that was quick - so glad I didn't post in the dusty halls of LEGO Classifieds :D

Can you let me know if they're available, and prices, please?

Picked these up today - couldn't get the two 20th anniversary polybag sets as they are street dated to April 1st.

I did see the Rey vs Kylo Ren playset and it looks epic.

I got the three new polybags and the Starkiller playset. I haven't assembled it yet but the image on the box really sold me on it.

FINALLY the really idiotic prices on this latest wave are starting to crack! WalMart has the Clone Scout and Anakin pod down to a MUCH more comfortable $23 and the Snowspeeder to $31! The savings on these alone will get you the dropship free! I want to get that TIE but I'm not touching it with a 10 foot pole for $69!

In the past week or so I picked up the Star Wars 20th Anniversary Slave 1, Snowspeeder, and Clone Scout Walker sets. Also got the Minecraft End Battle set for my youngest.

Only your last picture is showing, unless it's my laptop.
Hmm, I thought I fixed that. They're showing up on my screen but since they're on google photos it might be sharing issue, but it's weird you can still see one of them
