Star Wars Buy-Any-Set Opportunity: What What Would You Choose? (Disclaimer: Hypothetical Scenario)
Here's a hypotheical scenario to get your teeth into. Imagine TLG announce that you can order any Lego Star Wars set they have ever produced, and they'll sell it to you. If they don't have it in stock because it was discontinued twenty years ago, they'll whip up a box, print the instructions and send someone round their brick warehouse. It'll be just the same as the original release. The prices will be decent, proportional to the size of the set but not the age of the design, so you don't have to worry about paying two grand for a 100-piece set from the 90s.
What would you order?
Are you a purist who wouldn't want these custom rereleases? Is there one set you've always wanted? Would you take a chance on something odd just for the sake of it? Or would you not be interested in older, less refined sets, and try to get something you missed out on recently?
Personally, I'd get some of the less-seen older sets. I'd like a copy of every set eventually, so I'd see this as a great opportunity to get something I might only see once every few years on eBay. I'd get smaller, cheaper ones, to get as many as finacially possible. Maybe treat myself to a UCS or two.
(If you want to play this scenario with other themes than Star Wars, I don't mind; I'm just primarily in SW myself.)
