You can get all the pieces you need by just building up a Wanted List on BrickLink and seeing which shops have the best prices and quantity. You can also get the instruction booklets on BrickLink, or just get the PDF version online.
As for how we judge sets ourselves, we tend to break it down into two categories:  the build and the components.  We’re like any other Lego enthusiast, we love the build.  It needs to be challenging and engaging, not something that can be pieced together without instructions.  It doesn’t necessarily have to be a huge set, there is often a lot of fun to be had in smaller sets, but the build needs to grab our attention.  Most of those on our list end up being on the longer side for builds, as it’s the nature of the build that sets with more detailed builds will end up more engaging for us.
I like the set because it’s modular and can be quickly rebuilt to make your own scenes. I also like the flat 1×1 plates – but there sure are a lot of them. As far as set weights go, this is pretty light. Lots of tiny pieces could pose an issue for younger builders. I built my first set in an hour, and my second in 45 minutes, but I could see build times easily doubling mine depending on age. Kids obviously love it, and for parents it can be frustrating to see your kids want something that doesn’t maximize pieces/dollar/gram ratios, but there’s a good econ lesson in there. Especially if you can work something in about scalpers and aftermarket pricing. A note on that – don’t pay their ludicrous prices. Keep an eye out and you can snag this set fairly easily. SlickDeals always has a thread posted when this set is in stock.

Poe’s X-Wing stands out with the bold black and orange color scheme.  This is a stark contrast to the usual gray and red/blue scheme from the original trilogy.  The assembled starship takes up some space, but does so with a relatively small piece count of 717.  It has all of the features you would want from an X-wing, the wings switch between attack and flight positions, multiple shooters, and retractable landing gear.  Included with set are Poe and two generic Resistance members, the real gem is naturally the BB-8 who sits nicely behind the cockpit.  The build is fairly straightforward and is certainly shorter than some of the bigger sets, but will keep you interested.  Come for the slick color scheme on the awesome X-wing, stay for the great features and BB-8.
Ah, got it. FYI – the Market was introduced at the beginning of the year and the Fire Brigade was introduced in the middle of the year. I would be shocked if the Market was still on shelves in 6 months, but I could be wrong. – Nathan Stohlmann Jan 3 ’12 at 4:06

As a Lego seller, or someone who wishes to begin selling Legos, you must be careful when making your purchase.  After I purchased my first lot, I was astonished to find my precious Legos intermingled with junk.  I’m talking about leaking batteries, fingernails (I am NOT kidding!), trash, coins, rocks, used popsicle sticks, nails, toy cars…are you getting the picture?  Worst of all, my supposed “Lego” lot was about 50% imitation bricks, parts, and pieces.  My seller did not make amends and I was out a lot of money.  I did learn a valuable lesson, though.
“Retiring Soon” means nothing, some sets get the label and are sold out a week later, a set like Medieval Market gets the label and it was still available for like 6+ months. “Retired” is really the tag to look for but that doesnt show up until a set is almost completely sold everywhere so by time you see the label its worthless. Im sure LEGO does mess with buyers/investors to encourage them to buy a set they were on the fence about or were waiting for a sweet sale but instead rush out and buy it at full MSRP. Its all a big game with constantly changing rules, Investors either give up and get out, get burnt and loose money or you keep up with the changing market and actually make a profit.
I disappeared into the Harry Potter Lego Internet rabbit hole and here are a few of the places I’ve found to buy discontinued Harry Potter Lego sets, or even used Lego pieces — all without breaking the bank.

I ended up purchasing a second set of the Pet Shop and I’ll be totally honest I can’t remember if I either had the idea originally or saw it on-line, but it can be fun to build the second apartment building as a mirror to the first one. Also a bit of a mind bender if I remember correctly! I have mine set up with the two doors close to each other but it’s certainly easy enough to switch them around if you prefer them that way.

2002 saw the release of Episode II and with it the first eight sets from the film, including a much bigger Slave I featuring the new Jango Fett color scheme (#7153), the Republic Gunship (#7163), and for the first time, Yoda as a minifigure in “Jedi Duel with Count Dooku” (#7103), and also as a much larger UCS set of Yoda (#7194) standing 14” high. A total of 25 sets were released in 2002 and these also included the first MINI vehicle delivered in a polybag rather than a box, a TIE Fighter (#3219). Technic versions of Darth Vader (#8010), Jango Fett (#8011), Super Battle Droid (#8012), and R2-D2/C-3PO Droid Collectors Set (#65081) were also released along with UCS versions of the Naboo Starfighter which featured chrome elements (#10026) and the Imperial Star Destroyer (#10030), which became the largest LEGO Star Wars set available, with 3,096 pieces. The Republic Gunship, released in 2002, is the only set to feature blue Super Battle Droids and commands a high after sale price — as do most retired LEGO Star Wars sets. The 1999 version of the X-wing Fighter was re-released in 2002 as set #7142; also the first LEGO Star Wars pens were introduced (not included in set counts).
If, like me, you were at elementary/primary school when you first saw Star Wars then there’s a very good possibility that, also like me and my peers, you grew up playing with LEGO. My bedroom floor was literally carpeted with LEGOs, and I built makeshift dioramas out of it so that I could create some of my favorite moments from the film(s) with my Star Wars action figures from Kenner/Palitoy.
As much I’d like those three there are several other Direct To Consumer (D2C) sets that are higher on my list, therefore all three of them are a pass. If I was to chose one it would be 75059 – Sandcrawler.
However, what really bugs me are these sets. That is why it can be challenged as an educational toy because I’ve seen kids just build and not build some more. While I admire the themes and are just as wowed as you are when your child builds a complex set, I can’t help but think that we are not getting as much as we should be getting from LEGO.  I really wish it was more about the plain bricks. Did you happen to see Fat Brain Toys blog post showing nostalgic LEGO ads. I loved it!
LEGO Europe site did it again! After LEGO revealed some of their upcoming retirements in their Europe website in October, they had announced even more retiring sets this week. This list is massive and it includes Star Wars Rogue One, Force… Continue Reading →
You could’ve felt the call while you were a kid, or during your mid-thirties. It doesn’t matter when you started your LEGO Star Wars collection, there’s are a number of sets that you definitely love collecting, because they’re emblematic in a sense, because they’re just beautiful to build and display, or simply because everybody has one and now you have to (sometimes it works for me).

Of course as a large company LEGO would get some discount on international shipping, but still it would be higher than just buying locally. If you are interested in regional sets, BrickLink is your best option. Just choose the seller that is closest to you to save on shipping fees. 🙂
Let’s be honest; Legos can be expensive.  The inner Star Wars fanatic might really want to buy that 4,000 piece Death Star, but that’s simply not for everybody.  It certainly isn’t practical if you need to find something for your niece or nephew’s birthday present.  We’re here to help.  Below is a list of the cheaper Lego Star Wars sets that we love, with a brief summary of why we love them.  We limited this list to setes with an MSRP under $25.  
Did you know that investing in Lego can be one of the best investments you can make? If you look at the picture that I posted in the beginning of December, so approximately 1.5 months ago, I bought those Millennium Falcons for $100 each and now they are selling for $300!! 3x my money in 1.5 months, just goes to show the power of investing in Lego! I may make a YouTube channel on this, let me know if you’d be interested in seeing that!!
Would’ve given it full stars, except there are translucent window pieces that are the most annoying Lego pieces ever… We can’t tell if we had done missing pieces or if they were just lost because they are practically invisible lol!
Our first entry from outside of the movies, Captain Rex’s AT-TE is a fantastic set pulled from the Star Wars Rebels animated television series.  Rex was introduced in The Clone Wars animated movie, but this set has an aging Rex from the Rebels animated series.  This set won’t appeal to everyone, as many might not follow the animated series, but for fans of the show, this AT-TE really hits the mark.  The sheer amount of cool stuff going on here should appease any Lego fan.  The spring-loaded shooters are always awesome, but this behemoth also packs on a couple of cranes, loading doors, and six moveable legs.  Moving this thing around is a lot of fun.  The minifigurines are Rex himself, of course, along with his partners Gregor and Wolffe and two Imperials two give chase; an Inquisitor Fifth Brother (with lightsaber) and Stormtrooper.  This set is a slam dunk for fans of Rebels, but is just plain fun for any Lego fan.
If you haven’t collected all of the Rogue One sets you want, now is a good time to start. LEGO designer Hans Burkhard Schlömer noted that the sets for the first Star Wars standalone film are getting discontinued.
Also included is set # 6210 Jabba’s Sail Barge. This set is mostly complete, missing all the mini figs except Jabba and missing one piece from the skiff (the light grey control panel) but I substituted another piece.
Start at a reasonable price. In general LEGO buyers expect to pay between $4 and $7 per pound for loose used LEGO pieces including shipping. Clean lots with desirable pieces will often sell for even more. Start your auction at the low end of that range or below it. This will show your buyers you have done your homework and know what your lot is worth.
