She will notice the sets eventually, but she will walk past them for a few weeks before I get it in the neck, as long as the postie times it right ;)
#70435 Newbury abandoned prison
the last one completes my hidden side collection.
#75198 Tatooine Battle Pack for some more Jawas to populate the Sandcrawler. The Tusken Raider would have made more sense in the Luke's Landspeeder set but in either case it's nice to have.
#75259 Snowspeeder to finish off my Hoth vehicles as the AT-AT isn't going to cripple itself willingly!
#75265 for the brick built Bantha and Tusken Raider. I don't care much for the T-16 Skyhopper even if Luke did play with a model in a new hope.
I think the only things I'm missing for Tatooine are the Skiff and Jabbas Barge, but given the price of the latter, I think I'll pass until a new release comes about.
We're not savages.
I also plan on getting Optimus Prime in a week, but I don't know that there will be any active GWPs at that time. Been a spendy few weeks of LEGO buying.
I had liked the look of #31124 since the reveal but I never got around to picking him up in March. As with the other Creator 3 in 1 sets, I'm not as keen on the alternative models, but one of the biggest draws here is that it was one of the cheapest ways to get the yellow 2x1 jumper I wanted to #75218 ify my #75301 X-Wing to have a fire extenguisher. I could have used another colour, but this fella came with 8, and he can live without one of them hehehehe.
I'm also really looking forwards to putting in an order for #31132 Viking Ship on day one. I'm not as keen on the price of that one as the value proposition seems to have gone down a tad, but it would look cool next to #31120 Medieval Castle and #31109 Pirate ship.Last but not least I've been throwing a few offers and bids around on more retired sets and we shall see what comes of it :)
It was already 20% off RRP for £35.99, but I was given a £20 amazon gift card, so that brought it down to £15.99, and then I applied the 7OFFPICKUP coupon to have it delivered to my local post office, bringing the total to £8.99.
Still, a lot more expensive than pick a brick, and with more bricks I may not want or use, but I also have a bit more flexibility and variety and can try out the set before parting it out. Win-win :)
I was also eyeing up the Optimus Prime and while it does look nice on display, I can get a much better Hasbro / Takara masterpiece model for the same kind of money so I decided not to bother.
I could just order it online but I'll revisit #31132 when the new 90 years of play Forest men GWP set or double points comes around later this month instead.
