    I've had a closer look at the snowspeeder and now think it looks awesome. Much better than the death star from last year which I didn't get

    Thanks! Never knew this existed. So there is a sale forum similar to MM on here I take it?

    Not a forum, the whole site is like a market. I've never sold anything so not sure how it works but bought loads there.

    You can just buy whatever pieces you want, make yourself a wishlist and the site will find a seller for you.

    Are not giving it out? Is that a typo, or are they only giving them out online and not in store? I was going to pop out today and get some more of my 'wants' just so I could get a Beetle!

    The newest non ucs millenium falcon arrived today.
    Got it off the bay new (as I do with most sets) so only paid 75 for it.

    It's got a lot of pieces for a non ucs set. 1300+

    Managed to find the Jyn Erso buildable action figure yesterday in my local Tesco reduced from £20 to £2. Might be worth checking nearby to see if you can get lucky too!

    I'm off work for two weeks after an op next month, and need to buy a model to ease the boredom. I'll buy a Lepin one, as can't afford a Lego one.

    I prefer the Technic stuff with motors, gears, moving parts etc. Which one should keep me entertained the longest?

    42055 Bucket wheel Excavator (£113), 42056 Porsche GT3 (£67), or the 42043 Mercedes-Benz truck (£83).

    I'm favouring the Mercedes at the moment I think. Any thoughts or recommendations?
