I think they have different colors or soemthing. The original Slave 1 was more green and red. This one was more blue and silver. ;)

Wow, I didn't know they had so many different sets and themes nowadays, it's been so many years since I've played around with legos. Anyone remember the first space ones? Those were fun. :]

Hehe, yea, and the irony was they were called "Space" :p

I doubt you've seen them Z, the sets I got were old when I got them at age 5...

But they were classic toys. :D

GUNNER

so u don't have Leia either then.

if you purchased so many original sets why didn't you buy the millenium falcon set ???

it sells for 500 bucks on ebay nowdays :mad:

i am seriously going to buy the star destroyer soon, how BIG is it !!! awesome

GUNNER
01-13-2003, 09:57 PM
nope, no Leia for me...

I have no idea why I never bought the Falcon, I see it all the time on Ebay but last Isaw they were going for $250-270.

The ISD is huge, it's more then 3 feet long and about 20 inches wide. It dwarfs my blockade runner.
I hate to move it when I work on for fear it will fall apart as it is hard to find a place to pick it up from.

So far it feels like it weighs a good 10 pounds if not more. the instructions book is 224 pages. Last night I got the last of the "decks" put on. I just have to get the bridge/control tower on and I'll be close to done.

I have taken a few pictures of it but they aren't developed yet and we have no digital camera. I try to buy some film for an old poloroid camera ad scan in some pictureso I can post them.

Well, I focus more on 4 inch action figures. It already costs to much, so I don't have extra money for legos. ;)

ahh she's all back together now. it took me 3 hours to repair it :), the worst bit was i had a piece left over ! i had to go through the instructions step by step untill i found where it went :D

there is a leia for sale on australian ebay

Lego Leia @ ebay.com.au (http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3108590767&category=1186)

i was gunna bid on it, but it's too expensive for me now, and the reserve still hasn't been met !

I highly doubt that...it's got something like 3000 pieces.

Unless....

Why would someone pay that much for a Lego mini-figure?!?!?!

I too highly doubt it. I have about 20 hours into it and I still need to finish the commandbridge,radar domes and what not, plus the mini blockade runner...

It takes 15 minutes just to find certain peices sometime. besides, putting it together is half the fun, why rush it.

Believe me, I would. I would call everyone in my neighborhood to help if I had too. I'd be too determened.
(BTW, I finished the Pod Racer set in like 2 hours. :D )

Well you could try but 3000 peices is a lot of digging.

It's taken me about two years to get all that though.:D

Lego sets are much better than action figures - you can take them apart and rebuild them - it makes me coming back for more.

Purple_Tentacle
01-28-2003, 06:13 AM
we are yet to recieve the new sets here in australia, these are exciting times because all the stores are putting big discounts on their current stock to make way for the new stuff.

i purchased 2 more final duel 1's ( imperial officer, luke, stormtrooper ) for $9 AU each.

...


now where the hell is mace windu in these new sets ?!?!

i KNOW they can make black guys ! )Check these NBA guys out ! (http://cache.lego.com/images/shop/Products/TYPE07/LEGO-US-2057/Alt384x288us003566.jpg)

i want a LANDO and a MACE WINDU . (and an ANH leia )

Thew Rydur
01-28-2003, 10:55 PM
I completely agree with you on Lando and Mace, they should have been made a long time ago. I'd also like to see some more alien species figs too, maybe just in a set of 5 minifigs or so of different species (Rodian, Twi'Lek, Duros, Zabrak, Chiss, Wookie, Sullustan, etc. )

:) i wish i had :) sorry i really didn't give enough information there did i :( sorry.

there was a german lego exhibit that showed off what upcoming lego sets were in production. this AT-AT was at that show.

i got this info from http://www.fbtb.net/
A Little More Info on Two of the Summer 2003 Sets

4481 TECHNIC Hailfire Droid
679pc • $49.99

4483 Imperial AT-AT
1065pc • $99.99 • Luke Skywalker, AT-AT Driver and (2) Snowtrooper minifigs

so i did some google searches and i found these images :

http://www.rebelscum.com/toys/lego4481a.jpg (http://www.rebelscum.com/toys/lego4481a.jpg)
that got me pretty excited.

then i found the pictures posted above on this forum here :

http://forum.bejedi.com/viewtopic.php?p=1576#1576

so these sets ( AT-AT, and Hailfire Droid ) are official sets that lego will be releasing in JUNE this year (2003).

Isn't the Lego Millennium Falcon a little small compared to the AT-AT? I'm sure it was bigger, that one looks about 70-75% the original size. :(

Purple_Tentacle
02-22-2003, 03:46 AM
you will notice that in the stores now are a bunch of MINI sets, including a Mini AT-AT and snow speeder set and a Mini Xwing and TIE andvanced set, these are all quite small and cheap.

that Millenium Falcon you saw is the MINI version that is going to be released in june.....i think.

thats why it's so small....but it does look like a good size comparison for the Death Star, which is nice.

there is not a Lego version of Coleman Trebor at the moment, we don't even have Mace or Lando :)

the 4 mini sets that are available now are :

MINI X-Wing Fighter™ & TIE Advanced™ http://cache.lego.com/images/shop/Products/TYPE10/LEGO-US-2057/Set384x288us004484.jpg

MINI Sebulba's Podracer™ & Anakin's Podracer™ http://cache.lego.com/images/shop/Products/TYPE10/LEGO-US-2057/Set384x288us004485.jpg

MINI AT-ST™ & Snowspeeder™ http://cache.lego.com/images/shop/Products/TYPE10/LEGO-US-2057/Set384x288us004486.jpg

MINI Jedi Starfighter & Slave I™ http://cache.lego.com/images/shop/Products/TYPE10/LEGO-US-2057/Set384x288us004487.jpg

every set contains an EXTRA lot of pieces so that when you have all 4 of them you can build a MINI TIE Bomber :) :) :)http://cache.lego.com/images/shop/Products/TYPE07/LEGO-US-2057/Alt384x288us004484.jpg
