    I find them very cute and have collected a few. But the clonetrooper will be hard to come by since it only comes with the Gunship set that cost $199.9 each :eek:

    so this is gonna be the SW lego thread? cool.
    i saw the display at carrefour which showcase the republic gunship and it looks cool. but to buy it at such high price and having to build it up for display...i think im gonna wait for awhile longer when HASBRO release X-Wing and the republic gun-ship under the AOTC line. but im buying the lego AT-ST walker that comes with a lego chewie, its simplier for me. LOL!

    I only got the loose Royal Guard and that Palpatine-Vader-Maul Figure w/ Stands. The first gotten from Falcon Hanger some time back and wish I can get Vader and Maul too but they were sold out. :_|

    Ya, they are very cute but very expansive in Singapore. :( Hmm, is it just me or the AOTC 2-3 figures and 1 small vehicle set really cost $16.90? I saw that the Yoda, Dooku and his speeder cost that much only compared to QGJ, Maul his Sith Speeder which were more costing. :eek:

    LEGO pricing nowadays are much higher than when they first release. I remember buying the Speeder Bike set that comes with 2 Biker Scout and a Endor Luke only cost $19 each. Now the Dooku Yoda set are going at $27.9, almost a $8 jump.
    The set I really want is Anakin and Tusken Raider... again at $27.9 each.
    Well, I think though they are expensive, it still cost lesser than the Hasbro figs ;)

    One lobang for you guys, Simply Toys at Far East Plaza are selling minifigs but IMO, they are still quite expensive... Clonetrooper going at $29.9 each :eek: But they sells their LEGO sets (w/o minifigs) quite cheaply... I bot the EWOK ATTACK set at only $5.9 :)

    I only have Qui-Gon which I bought from a classmate's brother for $5.

    Please don't tell me I got ripped off. :p

    Well I think it's better than buying the whole darn set just for the figures...and I don't want the small little speeders and whatever. Yoda didn't fight a speeder-riding Dooku anyway. :p

    I'm the one who got "ripped" off cause I paid $12 for my small IRG figure. :_| Then again, the whole 2 IRG, 1 Palpatine & Shuttle Pilot plus the Imperial Shuttle cost a LOT. :(

    No DE, $12 for an IRG is a good buy / price. I saw places selling it at $29.9 too. And online shop sells it at USD7.5 cheapest. So, SGD12 for IRG is good buy :)

    I just got a confirmation of my purchase of 4 Clonetroopers from an oversea vendor (from Denmark) and it cost USD4.75 each. So all in all inclusive of shipping, it comes to a grand total of USD22 (equi to SGD39.6 conversion rate of 1.8). So I should expect it to come in around 2 weeks time. Till then....

    The Imperial Shuttle costs $70+? I think that's more affordable and worthwhile than other sets. If only still can find the older sets like B Wing etc. Anyone know where to get them?

    The 3 Figures per box is like Mine. There are 4 sets altogether: Sith Lords, Luke-Han-Boba, 2 Biker Scout-Chewbacca and 3 Battle Droids. When I bought mine, the seller offered to sell me the 3 sets he had for $50-75 (can't remember real price) but I didn't take it up cause cash limited as usual. Should have. :eek:

    The item no is 3340 to 3343. ;)

    Hmm, $12 is a bargain. But it's still quite a price to pay IMHO for 1 single Lego Figure . . .

    Now's the Great Sg Sale, a good time to get your Legos. But most malls are selling Star Wars Legos at nett price.

    So far I only see Carrefour and Metro offering them at discount price. Got my Republic Gunship from Metro. :D

    Faiz - It's still there at Raffles City..runs until somewhere in June I think. The life size vader and R2 is quite nice too, seen some people take photos with them :D

    However you won't find much Star Wars Lego there, only the usual stuff which can be found elsewhere.

    :p I went there with a classmate on 3rd June after CIP and we were admiring the Artoo and the Vader there. :p

    Speaking of Star Wars LEGO and Raffles City, the LEGO Star Wars TIE Interceptor #7181 is on sale at the Raffles City Robinsons for $79.90, down from the usual price of $229. See today's (7th June 2002) The Straits Times page 8. :)

    There used to be micro Machines minifigs when epI came out. It is sad that epII don't have, if not I would have bought a set of minifigs.

    Delight - the Count Dooku minifig does exists, its with the Yoda set selling at $27.9 each.

    I've just bot the Republic Gunship set at Simply Toys (Far East Plaza) without the Clonetroopers minifigs and it cost 1/2 the price of the full set. Unfortunately, the instruction menu is left in the shop and I have to go collect it later :(

    BTW, if you are very interested to buy only the minifigs, I recommend this site :

    http://www.bricklink.com

    I got my clonetroopers there :)

    I was at Isetan Parkway Parade on Friday, and I saw the Count Dooku and Yoda minifig set selling for $27.90 there. I thought of getting it, because the Yoda minifig is REALLY CUTE!! [face_love]

    ...but then, I thought I better not start collecting, otherwise I might not want to stop until I have everything! Yeah, yeah, one of my really bad habits, so I try not to start what I cannot finish [face_plain]
