Was able to cash in on a 40% off coupon that was live for a short period on Shop Disney, 10% EBates was running at the same time. Picked up a UCS Falcon 75192, Slave 1 75243, a few Marvel Hall of Armor 76125, Imperial Landing Craft 75221, Mickey Mouse Steamboat Willie 21317, and Hasbro Sandcrawler.

I was surprised the Falcon shipped after using the 40% off. I guess I'm surprised any of it shipped. I saw several folks had castles and falcons canceled, but mine was one of the few that actually shipped. I'm not sure if everyone ordered more than one or what, but many of those people received cancellations.

Just added 9 of the 12 Planetary Series, some replacement boxes, a bunch of Dark Age gap fillers, a handful of minifigs for a Mimban MOC and a giant grey triangle to my collection.

I actually miss those planetary series sets. Really wish they'd make a comeback. :\
I was in a Dark Age when they came out and when I came back to the light it took me a while to appreciate how cute they are. Got them at a steal. Just have to find the boxes, which shouldn't be too hard.

All of my planet sets (I have any that had an OT theme to them) are still in the boxes. When we finally buy a place we'll open them... I could do that carefully if you want them. It might be 6 to 12 months though.

Thanks Rob, that'd be lovely. I'll be in the US in August :D

The Death Star one is cool. I wish I could think of a MOC for it.

Also before I sell that other ISD, I'll check with you.
I've been giving it some serious though and had a conversation with the bank manager, and I reckon you and I could have a chat about it :D

Does anyone have an extra Sandcrawler for a decent price? Some places have clearanced them out and I missed them.

I've been debating getting this one for a while. Reviews seem generally negative. Would be interested in your take on it, once you're done building it.

The Kessel Run Falcon is not a homerun but I like having it over other more generic Falcons in that size. It also comes with some good minifigs from Solo.

I recommend it at the current discounts such as legocom for approximately 30% off.

I found one of these at my closest Walmart for $40 last weekend. Seals looked good, though I admittedly didn't look close enough, and I ended up buying it. When I got home, it occurred to me that it sounded like there were loose pieces rattling around inside and it turned out that the original buyer opened four bags and partway built it before giving up and returning it. All the minifigs were there, so I took a chance and broke down what was built before starting to rebuild. All told, there were only three pieces missing, and it came with an extra Ninjago minifig and other pieces that didn't belong to the set, so I think I made out well :D . I don't have a minifig-scale Falcon, so I like it pretty well. The gaps are unsightly but I can live with it. I mostly wanted it for the Lando, who seems to go for at least $10 himself, so the rest is just gravy.

Aside from this, I got the Mandalorian AT-ST from a Facebook buy for $30. Lego pickings have been pretty slim this year, not much has interested me. Before this, I don't think I've bought anything since the 20th Slave I back on May the 4th.

went to the Lego store this morning, a little after opening, most folks were there for the Batmobile but I picked up the Disney train. Best part, through some unopened returns I had I only paid 64 cents

had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket so I picked up Emmett's Dream House/Rescue Rocket at Target. Had been eyeing this set for a while and 50% off was too good to pass up

I haven't posted here in a while! Added the 20th Anniversary Hoth set to my collection a few months back, and the 20th Anniversary Endor set last week. I hope we get the Trench Run as another set like these to represent the OT.

I saw a picture of that exact set around the time the Endor set was revealed. Looked legit, though not approved for public release. With the 20th Anniversary OWK figure coming out this month, I'm guessing we may have to wait for the May the 4th sale for the Trench Run set.

Really, those sets are so well done, I wouldn't mind one for all 9 movies.
