It's great, isn't it? One of the simple pleasures in life
RSR is built, I've let my 3 year old son lose with it. He really likes it, the parts that he's managed to remove are the ones I expected would come off easily.
My son is about half way through the 1989 Batmobile set.
The structure is so solid - pretty sure I could drop it and nothing would fall off. Everything is supported by multiple pegs - e.g. each rear axle is held in place by 10 pegs and an anti-roll bar for safe measure
That Tie Fighter is awesome, may I ask for a link where I can buy one please.
The UCS Tie is out of production so eBay or BrickLink will be your best chances. Expect to pay considerably more than the £170 RRP though.
Yeah the tie looks awesome!!
The Batmobile is finished.
It's big and will just about fit on my shelf with a case over it.
It has working steering, the mid mounted guns pop-up when you turn the rear flamer and the cockpit slides forward.

That batmobile is awesome, I bet it was a fun build
That Batmobile looks fantastic ... I want it but have no shelf space left to put in anywhere. One of the problems with Lego sets - space !
Looks great, I'm going to get started on mine later.
There always somewhere free
Do you have another half that has a hatchback with a parcel shelf
You can still get one of you look to the knock off stuff. Depends how you feel about the whole Chinese knock off Lego issue.
Spent the afternoon building the Lego City Train for my 4yr old. He helped until the 3rd of 5 books then he got a little impatient.
Back breaking work but he loves it. Just have to get some rechargeable batteries now.
I was tempted to get a Lego train set for my son as he likes Lego and loves trains, but I feel they're just so overpriced (and thats coming from someone who thought the falcon was not overpriced).
Was half price a few weeks before xmas at Argos. No way would i have paid £120 for this.
I got the train for my two too, probably the same deal. They have been playing with it on the kitchen floor. Got a few extra track sets as well. Goes much faster than i was expecting
Yeah I need to get some more track for it. It's quite expensive though and need a few packs. January is always tight so he'll have to wait until February. Been looking at compatible track but ot seems just as expensive if not more. 2nd hand might be my other choice. Save the planet n all that haha
Just finished the UCS Y-Wing from last christmas. Got the Lunar lander this year that needs building also, just need to find somewhere to put it!
I reckon that eBay must have some track (it's where I've been stocking up on Brio). I did some filing today as well, the Lego manuals for the models I've got fills 3 box files.
Omg the Brio too. It never ends. At least the 2nd boy, on the way, I will have it all already.
