There was a double points offer about a month ago, no idea when the next time is sorry.

I had no idea what this was so looked it up on eBay. Er, what gives?? This is a £150+ set yet had an RRP of what £40-£50? I understand the popularity of retired sets: I dealt in Lego for 4 years as a reseller. But I would not have touched this set at anything less than 50% off the RRP. Why so popular?

On a different note: Quidco is doing a record breaking 11% cashback when shopping at Lego.com! It's normally as low as 3%, sometimes up to 5%, but I have never seen it at 11%. Take that, your 20% off, your 5% loyalty VIP points and your utterly amazing Christmas snowglobe giveaway (spend over £60 - currently selling for £30 and I mean SELLING for £30 on eBay) and your RRP £79.99 Lego VW Camper Van set is now costing you..... £23

I have no idea scruffy, my only guess is that the more popular the tv series has become, the more people want the set

I think the Ghosts higher after market price is really down to the availability v's it's rising popularity. The set, along with the connecting phantom ship, were available prior to season one of rebels starting but didn't hang around too long on shelves and with three seasons down now and no sign of a new version coming anytime soon, demand is growing. Add to to the fact that it is a nice ship that gives us the core crew members, good play features etc. And I think this will rapidly become a 200+ set by the time rebels wraps after season 4.

That's interesting, cheers :) I have never been into Rebels so wasn't tapped into its popularity. In which case £21 is an insane bargain!

You should check the rebels stuff out, there are some fantastic sets to be had .

The Tie Advanced Prototype, AT-DP and Wookie ship from wave 1 are great as are the Phantom and Ghost
Vader's Tie Advance v's A Wing and Captain Rex's AT-TE from wave 2 are two of the best Lego sets in recent years

Some of the smaller sets are good like the speeder bikes, but the Phantom Mk2 that is out in Jan complete with Admeral Thrawn figure looks fantastic.

Lovely Star Wars sub-theme to go with what is becoming a cracking TV show.

Not much. There was Rob's display, a podracer display and an awesome U-Wing and AT-ST display which went for about £135 I think.

DOUBLE POINTS AT LEGO! Just until 26th December

AND

Don't forget it's still 11% Quidco cashback!

AND

You get an A-Wing Rebels minifigure with SW purchases over £25.

Feels like Christmas :D
