Hi guys, apologies if this is the wrong forum, it's my first time here so please go easy!
I've been setting up my brickset account of late with sets I have/want, and the sets I'd like are estimated to come to the princely sum of £2000, ouch! This got me to thinking, is it possible to just purchase pieces for models from a site like spareblocks cheaper than it'd be to buy the set itself? I'd imagine this'd be the case for discontinued/harder to find models, but not so much current kits... Alternatively, are there any larger sets that are worth buying purely for pieces to use in creating other sets/MoC's?
So, has anyone done this and made good savings? I'm pretty much purely interested in Star Wars, are there any sets that'd be worth using this method for in particular?
