I'm new to Lego but the obsession has escalated very quickly. I thought I would start collecting sets for my son. He's not of age to play with these yet, but when I saw the prices I thought I better start now. I built a few small sets on my own and enjoyed it. I then went a little bigger with the Star Destroyer 75055 and I'm hooked.
Craigslist and a few hundred dollars latter, I have about 60 pounds of random bricks and old sets.
As far as what I believe to be UCS I also have the Slave 1 75060 & Red Five 10240 on back order and the Sandcrawler 75059 in hand. But is that good enough for me? Absolutely not.
Now onto my questions.
1. Is the Red Five 10240 a UCS? If not, does anyone have both and recommend one over the other? I may be confused even thinking there are two.
2. The Tantive IV I believe is a single set, but I see two boxes. One says anniversary edition and another box I've seen does not. Can someone please explain the difference? I know "anniversary" was a label for the anniversary of the entire SW line, but not sure why some boxes don't label it. I'm very interested in this set but if there is a difference, I don't want to buy one and find out I wish I had the other. Based on pics, it seems the thrusters are sometimes red and sometimes orange; could just be the lighting of the pic though.
3. Have any UCS every been re-released after thought to be EOL. Thoughts being the UCS Falcon is simply unobtainable, but Episode VII is coming out in less than a year and will have the Falcon featured . . . seems like an easy money grab for Lego if you ask me.
I have plenty more questions, but for the hope of getting your responses, I'll limit to three per post.
Lastly, if anyone has sets and want to trade/sell I'm open to it. As for trade, my lego collection is very young so I don't have much to offer, but I am a collector, meaning I have tons of other things that might interest you. The biggest being a statue collection of mostly Marvel produced by Bowen Designs and Sideshow Collectibles. As for non marvel statues, there are those too, including the Sideshow Mythos Boba Fett for you SW fans. Oh, and about 60,000 comics. That all being said, I'm really just here to learn more about this hobby that passed me by for the past 30 years so trying to catch up. I look forward to your answers.
