    I finally went to the LEGO store on 5th Avenue since B&N doesn't carry it. It was very cool there, with lots of mega sized builds, and build your own minifig stations.

    Last year I talked about getting the whole LEGO TIE line and thanks to finally tracking down a standard TIE fighter I have now done that! For the OT fighters at least, I'm pretty sure there's a TIE Striker set, as well as ST era ones

    I found my old box of Lego figures. Sadly I donated almost all my sets other than the figures (cause I like em) I misplaced them in my house for a while. I’ll have to upload a o I tire of them here

    @Todd the Jedi Yeah, you'd need a heck of a bigger shelf if you extended your collection beyond the original four TIE variants! The Striker is huge; would take up half of that space all by itself. At any rate, that's an awesome line-up! Is that the original TIE Advanced x1 set?

    No, the 2009 version. All the original TIE LEGOs have the blue trim on them- eventually they switched to the more accurate gray trim. I actually had the Fighter, Bomber, and Interceptor way back when, and they were all blue, so it's nice to have the more accurate models, with of course major design advancements.

    Ah, that's neat, I'd forgotten there was a "middle" version of Vader's TIE. I've got the Rebels set which came with an A-Wing. :)

    It's weird looking back at some of those original LEGO sets. I had a couple from The Phantom Menace and the first Slave 1 and totally saw them as these highly detailed, accurate models whenever I played with them as a kid, but now they're... well, I don't wanna say "laughable" but...?

    Do you follow MandR Productions? He has a lot of comparison videos and yeah it’s laughable how basic the original designs for a lot of sets were. I still have that original Slave I and the Jango version from only a few years later, and the latter is way more detailed and accurate.

    In your defense, the Jango Slave I is still the most accurate version of Jango's ship since they never remade it :p

    I've seen a couple of equivalent channels on YouTube, yeah. :)

    Boba's Slave I is probably the best way of appreciating LEGO's design evolution, given how many variants they've released over the years. It's either that or the Falcon. Does kinda boggle the mind when you see the leaps and bounds that've been made!

    And yeah, speaking of which, we're long overdue an updated Jango variant (no matter how good the original was). [face_laugh]

    My latest LEGO acquisition. I had the original AT-TE way back when so it was cool building a more updated version.

    Went and bought the new Captain Rex black series helmet yesterday. It is glorious!! The paint job and details are done so well.
    Quite possibly the best helmet to date. Either that or Vader, I can’t decide.

    I signed up today for the Pre-release event of Star Wars Unlimited at my LGS… does anyone know if there is a thread or section to talk about that game here? I’m really looking forward to playing it actually.
