grabbed a clearance jabba's palace at wal mart. $79 seems pretty good for this set- Now I can look forward to grabbing a Rancor set at some point when there is a sale going on-

Picked up the new AT-RT Green Box set for my son yesterday.  The box is tiny for $20, but definitely a cool set.

Still looking for the smiling face for Luke, but I basically finished assembling my NYCC Landspeeder today.

Ok - so I knew this was gonna happen - kinda got the Lego bug now, here's what I've picked up over the past few days....

Battle for Geonosis
Mandalorian Battle Pack
Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship
T-6 Jedi Shuttle
Sith Nightspeeder
Sith Infiltrator
Elite Clone Trooper & Commando Droid Battle Pack
Endor Rebel Trooper & Imperial Trooper Battle Pack
Droid Escape
Geonosian Canon
TIE Fighter
Anakin's Jedi Interceptor
Desert Skiff
AT-RT


I've also got my eye on the Z-95 Headhunter and I have some Toys R Us rewards bucks that expire this coming Friday - tomorrow I'll hit up Toys R Us and probably spend them on the Palpatine's Arrest set if it's on-sale in the store like it is online.

I'm not going to go back any further than 2011 sets - and even then, I'm only going to pick up 2011/2012 sets at or below MSRP - I have no interest in going to the secondary market for these where they have the tendency to really climb in value. So for now, I'm mainly focusing on getting "caught up" for those years as best I can and then over this year I'll acquire a good number of the 2013 sets. My local WalMart has four or five of the 2011 Millennium Falcon sets on the shelf - I'll probably pull the trigger on that set at some point soon before they disappear.

Hit my local Toys R Us with those Rewards Bucks to burn...

Picked up Palpatine's Arrest AND Hoth Echo Base sets - the Toys R Us website is having a massive Lego sale and even though the sets were ringing up for regular price at customer service, I got them to look up the price on the website and give me the sale price. So they both were $89.99 ($20 off on the Palpatine set, $5 off on the Echo Base Set).

I put them both together tonight - great sets.

Used an expiring LEGO Store coupon to snag the new (last year) Y-Wing today. Was gonna snag the X-Wing too but they didn't have any. Guess I'll have o grab it next time I hit Target or WM.

Finally got my Star Wars Marvel comic #102 which completes the vintage SW comic run for me.  Should be delivered in a few days.  Finally just broke down and paid about $7 for it.  After losing multiple auctions for it, and just could not find it cheap in the local comic bins either.

That's really about it.  Sngged the 3D TPM wave a few weeks ago at 5 Below for $5.

Bought the little one a DS ObiWa pen stylist thingy, a $1 box ofSW Valentines at 5 Below and some  4 pack Fighter Pods for $3.  Also grabbed the Boba Fett collapsable water bottle at Target in the $1 bin this weekend.

Little stuff...  fun stuff.

Nice haul Zod!

I finally put a few sets together over the weeks - nothing big, but the builds are as satisfying as ever!
