Yeah, I have the A, B, X and Y Wings all assembled. And the Z95 Headhunter, just cos!


Need a pictue of the B-wing :)

The new Y-wing looks great, they have one on display at Smyths here. I've got the A-wing and Z-95 built (nice model for the latter) but the X-wings and TIE Fighter remain in their boxes...sure I've got a few prequel fighters I picked up and yet to build.

I found some pics on the phone but they have personal info on, so I'll try to remember to take more.

It's the non UCS ones that I have. Prefer those. More toys for playing with and going 'pewpew'... :shock:

Ah, I hadn't realised there was a non-UCS B-wing. I was initially disappointed I didn't buy the UCS Tydirium but this one is a better size and still looks good with reasonable complexity - found a picture of them here:

I have been busy with buying up some lego series 16 figures as they're half price in Argos but not done at all well which is frustrating given how many cool ones there are. I started off with a pair of banana men which is fine as I like them but now have five, also have four hikers, three emo guys, three ice queens, two boxers, two ninjas but I did get the spy at least!

Also I have a Scottish Batman who is absolutely awesome:

Oh, wow! That's really cool.

A friend picked up some of the Lego Batman minifigure blindpacks for me. they have some comical batmans in them. I have one in a tutu!

I recently picked up Series 14 and 15 of the minifigures. I'll grab 16 later this month after payday - and assuming someone has them for a reasonable price on eBay. They used to get really expensive after the series had stopped being sold, but I think people have cottoned on to the big supermarket discounts so can pick them up for low prices and still sell them on at a profit.

I have two cave batmen and the rock batman, I bought them in the Tesco 3 for 2 but then the offer was discontinued before I could buy any more.

I'm with you on buying all the minifigures as it's usually a reasonable price, pretty much the same as it is per figure whereas if you just buy the figures you want they're often six, seven pounds each which seems a ridiculous amount. On the other hand, I have way too many minifigures these days and the large groups of hikers and banana men were causing problems with my phone cable when on a call this afternoon.

What does Steff's one even say?!

I bought a Guardians of the Galaxy set today (76080) which I'd been tempted by the other day but noticed another fiver knocked off it, I noticed it when going round Tescos while entertaining my friend's toddlers. They decided they wanted to build the set which I thought there wasn't much chance with but one of them had surprisingly good delicate control and getting the pieces together. It's been a moment I've been looking to for a long time as I like the Lego anyway and while it needed a bit of patience it was great seeing their enjoyment in building the lego.

The rocket guy is absolutely awesome with his classic Lego space outfit under the rocket and his little flag with the hand drawn version of the space logo.

I like this little Lego Cisco guy but he's £32 delivered :(

Apparently he's given out free at some trade shows so just need to find one of those :)

I've ordered my set although with postage and packing at £4 and free over £50 it clearly makes sense to spend more than £50. I didn't want to get something that's cheaper at Amazon but found the little Mini Cooper I've wanted so it's on the way as well.
