only $600 cheap


Considering each brick is about 10 cents in the average set. Yes, it is cheap.

So I see most people here had "whole sets"? Pure luxury! You ever try making something cool with 43 city parts, 33 space parts, and 24 happy meal set specials parts???

I'm the youngest of five. 99% of all my belongings were hand-me-downs. Getting something new was a special treat and I appreciated it that much more. My first new LEGO set was a Technics dragster my brother got me for Christmas when I was 11.

I had kids when I was young, and I bought them many lego ninjagos that were way too difficult to build so that I could build them myself.

I'm not proud of that, and it could have probably paid for my kid's college... but building legos, you can put a price on education, but you can't put a price on that.

As a child of the 80s I mostly remember our giant tupperware container full of random lego, kind of a build whatever the fark you want type of thing.

Granted, a lot of these newer sets are pretty cool looking. But all of the crazy custom pieces kind of ruin the simple building block aesthetic to me.

Ugh, tell me about it. I spent so much time and effort building mine, and the cats killed it in a matter of days.

I'm preparing myself, finally, to begin the rebuild. But this time I'm committing some LEGO heresy: I'm super gluing sections together, so that when the monsters decide to leap all over it again, it'll be a helluva lot easier to repair.

But seriously, I just got the UCS Landspeeder set, and by chance it was just before the 20% worldwide price increase. Was £175, now £220. Probably be the last big set I get until the Camelot gods smile upon me

As it happens, i do have the 71043 Hogwarts Caste, which I purchased for £350 a few years ago. Now £420, but soon to be discontinued. I'll pack it all up in the original bags/box, and sell it for £700 in a couple of years.

You joke, but my wife's cousin husband buy tons of expensive lego models, and display them proudly in the living rooms wall, alongside his Assassin's Creed statuettes. His 5-yo son and 8-yo daughter are expressely not allowed to touch them, even the Harry Potter castle.

Oh yeah, that's the castle I was talking about. I had no idea it was so expensive. It rests proudly in the living room, at child's height, and they get screamed at if they touch it.

Is this the 75192 Falcon? IMO for the size it's pretty strong, with a good internal frame. Needing to be a little careful with the exterior seems like an unavoidable part of that busy MF look, but I can pick the ship up and move it around and support it on its own landing gear or on the display stand without worrying about structural damage.

Admittedly these UCS Star Wars sets function more like Models For Morans than creativity toys, but in my experience it only adds to the imaginative play of kids to have more weird little pieces available.

/also sets tend to have only a few truly custom pieces out of thousands
 
2022-09-27 10:49:38 AM  
Looks awesome. I wish I could get it. But with the kits we keep constructed and the loose pieces of dozens of other sets collected over the last quarter century fueling whatever my kids can think up, there really is no room.

It's almost time for my yearly disassembly and reassembly of the UCE A-Wing fighter.

I get it, the sets are great, but the cost per brick on Star Wars vs other sets is nuts.

I have a hard time dropping $600 on something.  If it isn't on an electronic or car part, I have a REAL hard time dropping $600.

Where do you get 3900 pieces for this set? The part count is in the headline...

Over the summer I helped clean out my grandparents house and found a couple boxes of my uncle's legos in the basement. Mostly early 90s space stuff. The best was this bad boy, which still actually had all the pieces:

If the economy turn around and the shares I have in my company scheme return to what they were 6 months ago by the end of next year, I'll have about 3.5k to muck around with. And I WILL be dropping a stupid amount of money on something stupid and brick-shaped

The issue is that the razor crest is a pretty basic, crummy looking ship.

Nice find, those space sets are classics. Makes me want to get all mine back out.
