Seems like a very good price for this, £149.99 at the Lego store, £159.95 on Amazon.

Showing as in stock at all my locals, so not one of the usual "phantom" Argos deals.

Got this for my son for Christmas a couple of years back, nice set (well, he enjoyed it!)



The R2 and X-Wing are no longer manufactured. As part of the LEGO Ultimate Collector's Series, they are already worth more than this on eBay. Although you won't make any profit buying and selling immediately due to fees, these models are an investment as much as a toy. This is an excellent price!

It would have been a better deal up until 2 days ago in Argos' 3 for 2 toys offer if you were buying 3 of this set or 2 other similarly priced toys (although this set was probably out of stock while that deal was on). Remember Argos' toy exchange is on again so at least you can save £5.

Lego has gotten very expensive.

Loads of stock when this was 3 for 2 with all the others yet my deal went cold... Gotta love this site

This set is listed 'hard to find' on the Lego site. There's rumours that it could retire by next year, which will send eBay prices sky rocketing. It'll most certainly be a good investment, being a UCS set and with the next Star Wars episodes that will be released, well worth getting one at this price to store away.

3 for 2 will back in November. I will wait until stock is replenished and go on a raid for these. I only have 9 and plan on 20 plus before I move onto the X-Wing late next year.

Yeah I think Star Wars Lego is especially.
I also think most of it looks naff as well.

What are you talking about!!

OOS NORTH ;LONDON

Out of stock in Liverpool and surrounding areas

Thanks op. Was going to get this for my son's Christmas but found the Millennium Falcon also from Argos for £106.39 and that comes with Darth Vader so gone for that instead. Cheers

I tried to get this on 3 for 2 the day it was reduced, showed in stock, ordered along with 2 other slightly cheaper sets and immediately had the order cancelled due to no stock, checked back a short while later still showed unstick but order cancelled again, this is the second time this has happened when this particular set was reduced, when it's full price again the stock is replenished!!!

I reserved one yesterday for pickup at a store in Harlow today, hasn't been cancelled yet, We'll see....

I know they seem expensive, but when compared with something like a Lego minifigure, they're actually quite good value.

A minifigure costs £2.50 and you might get about 10 pieces (if you're lucky). That's 4 pieces per £1 spent.
This R2-D2 set contains 2127 pieces. Even at the rrp of £150, you're getting about 14 pieces per £1 spent., i.e 3.5 times better value.

That's because loads of people reserve them during the 3 for 2 promo and don't collect for whatever reason.

Got mine today anyway

Got ours too, thank you (can't believe I missed it on the 3 for 2 didn't even know argos sold it!)

Was also 3 for 2 last week - THAT was the time to buy

You can also get the X Wing for £135.99 (assuming its not a wild goose chase)

Well I did post 20% off + 3 for 2 but it went as cold as hell for reasons unknown!

Laughing so hard at that description...how juvenile of me

Tried to buy this last week and was out of stock everywhere. Interesting they have suddenly got stock in! Good deal still

lol. Funnily enough, there was stock in Thurrock and Dartford I think (but a bit far for me to bother!)

Just reserved the last X-Wing in bristol! (_;)

LOL I havent thought that far ahead. I just told the wife, she wasnt impressed.

I picked up mine last weekend. Great set to build and I have mine displayed. It gets lots of admiring comments from friends.

Something you may not realise is that Lego messed up a bit on the build and R2 doesn't lean back correctly. In his 3 legged mode he looks like he's about to face plant him(her?)self. There's a fix that doesn't need any extra pieces - just altering a few bricks - that will remedy this. It's detailed here:
