Love this thread, thought I would post my small run of factory sealed mini Star Wars play sets.

Think I got them around 1999? :?

I loved some of those mini sets. The two Jabbas Palace sets where from 2003 and specifically designed to clip into either side of the larger #4480 Jabbas Palaces set. If you have the 'wings' you have to get the main set. I remember running all over London to get these, finally finding them in Harrods and getting all three for something like £40, fantastic price concidering the pieces and figures and of course the first ever Lego 'slave Leia'.

Yeah thanks I thought it might have been a bit later than 1999! Think my sister gave them to me for Christmas one year. :D

I built my first ever bit of Star Wars lego last night with my daughter. It was the Reys speeder from The Force Awakens. Absolutely loved it and I couldn't believe how many pieces there were and how detailed it was. So cleverly designed. We had a blast, I think I'm hooked! :D
