Just checking in via phone to show you guys what I got last night.
From my father:
Star Wars Vintage Series Wedge Antillies
He's a decent figure, but the helmet is hard to get on and off without decapitating him. His flight suit doesn't sit well with the little rings near his knees. But it's Wedge. It's Ewan's Uncle. That's still cool.
From my wife:
Lego Star Wars Anakin and Sebulba's Podracers.
I would collect more Legos if they weren't so expensive. My wife would too. She heard me say that if I could own only one Star Wars Lego set, it would be this one, And I love her that she got this for me. We haven't started building it yet, and may not for a while. But I'm so glad I have it.
See you tomorrow!
My wife and I decided to build them yesterday. Here's what it looked like after an hour and a half:
Another hour and a half, and it looked like this:
After that, Sebulba's cockpit took maybe another fifteen minutes to build. Here's some pics of the completed set:
Although, I just realized this. This set comes with an Obi-Wan minifigure...why? He was nowhere near the podrace. It should have been Qui-Gon. Oh well, at least I have A Jedi minifigure now.
