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

It is indeed. May 1st release for the May 4th promo week, although oddly it is the only SW Lego set that will have no discount on it during the promotion week so it will cost c£170.
More interesting is the romour that in Oct a new UCS Millenium Falcon at c$800 is heading our way. That would make it a £600+ set I. The U.K. If true?
