Collecting on a budget...

Postby Spookedhippie » Sat Apr 22, 2017 8:15 pm

I think most of you know that a couple of years ago I moved in with my now wife and lost my Star Wars room. The old room had black out blinds and everything was kept safe. My new house had no such space and anything I had would be at the mercy of light. So rather than fret about it I let go of my beloved ree yees collection and vintage goodies in the belief that one day I could return to it...

so where to go? Well as money is tight I went down the Lego route. Some would say this isn't cheap but time and patience has allowed me to amass a small collection, none of which (bar one) have I paid more than 50% of retail value, and the majority about 80-90% off. I thought I'd share what I've got now, as my 4 month old daughter will be stealing the space I've found. What will happen to the Lego?! I have no idea... Enjoy!

Lovely stuff Grinch. Personally can't stand lego but maybe thats because ive never had the pleasure of building any. I only buy it now to store untouched for future value but youre display is great buddy. Kids eh? Bout time they designed a special add on house at the bottom of the garden for them to live and grow up in instead of invading all our manspace!

Love the blockade runner, great piece. I remember seeing that TFA X-Wing display in Tescos, pretty cool.
