HELP! Lego Death Star (10188) or Super Star Destroyer (10122)???
Hello everyone! I am new to this site but have collected Lego since I was a child. I am disappointed to say that I was in the dark ages for the last 9-10 years. However I recently rediscovered the 'light'! I am currently collecting the Lego modulars, only have Fire Brigade so far, unless you count the Haunted House, ( my first Lego set in 10 years!)
Along with the modulars though, I plan to expand my Star Wars UCS collection, I have all the UCS from the first X-wing up until Cloud City and Snowspeeder. Really sad I missed out on UCS Falcon..sigh..
Anyway, I recently won a $200 gift card at work and am planning to buy a large set this week. But I am completely torn between 10188 and 10122. I have read reviews but would really enjoy some light discussion before I decide. Below I will list why I want each set
- I dont have the first Death Star and it seems no Star Wars Lego collection is complete without one or the other.
-So many mini-figs! And features! Im a big fan of lego playlets (cloud city/modulars) and this one is bursting with playability.
10122- Super Star Destroyer
- Appears to have that wow factor! So long and detailed!
- Because its not as popular, I feel like this set will be worth a lot once its retired
- I have 10030 and feel this is a necessary companion
I know that the Death Star was released almost 5 years ago and is on its way out, but Lego seems to have sold a lot which means it may not be too hard to get one later on. The SSD is 3 years newer but it does feel like it will be disappearing soon and may increase in value quite dramatically. I guess i'm hoping for 10179 treatment post retirement.
Sorry if this is long or drawn out, but I dont have the opportunity to talk Legos much..at least until now!
Looking forward to your feedback!
