I love the look of the set.  I wonder how much different it is from the old Cloud City set.  I haven't looked at the old one for a while.  I haven't even had a chance to put together the big Hoth set that I got who knows how long ago now.  I really do love the idea of these playsets for lego.  It is what Hasbro is missing out on creating.  The Death Star lego set was a dream come true.  The vintage Death Star playset was always my favorite toy growing up.

I got the Darth Vader Transformation set at Walmart on clearance for $11. First LEGO set I've bought in a while.

May the 4th LEGO Store haul:
- TIE Fighter for $56
- Hoth Bacta Tank for $23
- 20th Anniversary Battle of Hoth freebie

And I grabbed the TLJ First Order AT-ST set tonight at Target for $11 (marked down from $40)

I found the 20th Anniversary slave one on clearance at Walmart for $80.  Good price or still too much?  I just have the original Slave-I, which pales in comparison.

I thought they were brand new as well.  They just had the one with security wrap on it.  No sign of an open box or anything.  That's Walmart for you.

Grabbed the new X-Wing a few weeks back for $40; it was down to $50 on Amazon for a few days, and then I had a $10 promo credit, so that was more than enough for me to bite. I also grabbed the Naboo Starfighter Microfighter for $7 at Walmart.

Trying to find some bargains on the 20th Anniversary sets, as well as hoping the Snoke's Throne set drops below $40 on Amazon again

And while we're at it, I think I'll exclusively be buying LEGO from Amazon or Walmart from now on. Anyone else seen the details about the revamp to LEGO's VIP program? There is literally no reason to buy from them directly anymore unless it's an exclusive set.

Snagged the Snoke's Throne set for $25 at Walmart tonight, thanks to a tip from a friend. They were pretty picked over, and most everything on clearance was sold out.

Just ordered my UCS Star Destroyer and already have the shipping notice!  Now to devise a way for my wife not to be here when it arrives...

I just picked up the new Cloud City finally...

I'm going to hold off on the Star Destroyer for now, ultimately I'll probably sell my old one and use the money to pay for some of the new one if it's really an improvement.

It's $60 off on Amazon - did you buy it there or is it another case of "Rob buys, then Jeff saves"?

The $60 off Cloud City has been tempting me but I'm hesitant to go beyond the $800 Falcon for LEGO... next thing you know I'd be all-in for ESB LEGO sets and then all downhill from there. #holdthedoor

Try having two boys, ages 8 and 5, who are completely LEGO crazy!  We are rapidly approaching peak LEGO in my house.  I wish it was just Star Wars that they like!
