What's more economical? Buying set or parts?
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?
