For the 30-40% off the price tag, I hope you're all getting one.
It's $42 here in NY, no great deal.

Interior elements for Kwik-E-Mart are fantastic, but images are huge so: Link

And, yeah, new CMFs are great.

Finished up this Snowspeeder last night. The original build comes from Larry Lars on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/28192677@ ... 603512664/

The build itself was insane. There's only those photos that he kinda took apart and made "instructions" from. No part list. And sometimes the parts would change in the photos throughout the build. :D Definitely the hardest thing I've ever put together, but it's a great model with a lot of interesting techniques. There's definitely no better official Lego set.

NICE! I'm thinking of picking up some of the older Tie fighters and swapping out all the blue to match the newer color palette they are using these days.

OH and I put together my stand for the Slave 1, check it out... not that you can see it, but it sure does display better this way!

Nice work man. I built myself one as well... I agree it looks 100X displayed like this.
