I'm tossing up on what I buy next. Theres a bb8 model out, but it doesn't look the best. I'm thinking the star destroyer

I saw the big BB8 model in store the other day, it looks like a big ball of ass. And not nice ass, I mean it looks like hairy sagging smelly ass.

Is it confirmed this will find it's way into retail stores? I'm yet to see it anywhere in the big dept stores or Toys R Us, etc. I'm happy to pay 160 for it, so I'll be securing one at Dreamworld tomorrow with any luck.

The BB8 is a pretty decent model. Looks great on display, especially if you have the UCS R2D2 with it

As for the Saturn V, I'm hoping to pick it up at Legoland Japan next week. Won't work out any cheaper but will be a good souviner.

I managed to get two Saturn V's for around $140 a pop when Toys R Us had a 10 minute special online. That was a good buy

I'm downsizing my collection though due to space. Going to sell the Helicarrier, and probably sell all the Architecture stuff (Opera House, unopened Big Ben, Tower Bridge) and focus on Star Wars, Pirate Ships and perhaps cool Lego Ideas like Fishing Store/Saturn and the odd Technic flagship

Have a the 6x6 technic flagship arriving - managed to snag that for $220 BNIB delivered

I'd be sooo keen on the Hellicarrier

But I'm trying to focus on Star Wars as well. Laybed a shitload of Star Wars stuff at Big W tonight. The new Ep7 Disney stuff. (New AT-AT walker, Heavy Walker, Star Destroyer etc). Almost 1k

Wooties, the two Extreme Adventure 42069 I ordered from the 34% off Myer/eBay sale have been shipped, I wasn't sure that my order would actually be filled, hooray!
