    Do you have a bargain? Have you gotten yourself a SW Bargain? Tell us about it!


    Yesterday I was at the Salvation Army shop, looking for costume shoes and my son brought a bag of toys to me and said, "Mum, can I have these? Only a $1?" I said yes and thought nothing more. Then my daughter came running in from teh $1 clothes rack "MUM!! Look!!" She had a black pair of Star War EP 1 cargo pants in her hand in my size! OMG!! Grabbed them! Then we got home and opened the bag, son seemed to know what he wanted out of the bag. Pulled out a vintage Thunderbirds FAB1 - Lady Penolopes Pink Rolls Royce Car in excellent condition!! It's 60's, it's English and it's awesome! He was happy, I was stunned. He knew it was there and said nothing to me!!! Smart kids!!! [face_love]

    worse!! they clog up the vacuum cleaner, and then, when you decide to play with the lego when the kids are in bed, you can't find Yoda's head!! :D (cos it's gone up the vacuum, maybe)

    ah....your Mum was smart. I might do that

    I don't have anything from when I was a kid....I think mum gave it all to the salvos or someone.....I even had a 12" 3PO at one stage. I remember A-D and I playing with our little Lukes and Leias when we were about 12!! :)

    I got the Lego "Cloud City" for $100 (RRP-$250+) at the West Lakes Kmart, The Lego AT-AT for $150 (RRP-$216) at Kmart, Port Adelaide. And, the Lego Falcon for $120(RRP-$200, offhand) at Toys'R'Us in Town.


    This is all in the last 2 months, so there may still be stock left @ these places. Big Star Wars Lego doesn't seem to move down this way.

    I know That Big W at Arndale may still Have afew Lego Jabba's Palace sets going for about $30, roughly. This Set was about $70-$90 when released 2 or 3 years ago.

    Just got back from a great bargain - free tickets to see Glyn Nicholas and Shaun Micallef live!! It was a fantastic show....if you want a great laugh, go!!

    I am a little intrigued though.....

    I posted something on here earlier in the day, and it seems to have disappeared!! Has anyone ever had that happen to them? I know I'm not going mad - where did it go? I hope it didn't go to another thread, that just wouldn't make sense!


    EDIT: oh wait, I am going mad!! Just found it!! duh, Winter....time for bed, methinks! :D

    I have always regretted not picking up one of the Ultimate Collector's Series X-Wings for 50 bucks from K-Mart when they clearanced them out a couple of years ago. Those things go for 300+ on Ebay now :(

    I want one of those Lego ISDs...

    Hey, I'm glad you liked the show, MsWinter. I've never really found Shaun Micallef very funny though. I walked past him last wednesday along King William street. He was walking along like a self important prat... almost like he was waiting for someone to recognise him and stop him.... but anyway, glad it was a good show :D

    I was gonna say it does happen from time to time Winter but you found it I guess! Sometimes when the boards lock or dump out the post you are doing at the time is lost....
