Blast
Our Bricks & Pieces team will be really busy over the holidays making sure that any missing parts get replaced asap. We therefore won't be accepting any paid parts orders after 11/12/2017. We’ll start taking paid orders again in early February.

And many of the parts aren't listed in the 'bricks' section


As a complete aside, any Star wars/Lego fans know the difference between

https://shop.lego.com/en-GB/Death-Star-10188

and

https://shop.lego.com/en-GB/Death-Star-75159

?

I suppose Death-Star-64971 would be too obvious? The samller set (https://shop.lego.com/en-GB/Death-Star-10188) is "retired". http://jaysbrickblog.com/2016/09/01/leg ... edecessor/ says
LEGO have added over 200 bricks and elements as well as 3 new minifigures.
but
Why 75159 Death Star is a terrible idea
It’s just lazy. Structurally, it doesn’t look like much has changed.
It brings nothing really new to the table.
2016 will forever be known as the worst year for Star Wars UCS
It still has a very blocky dated design. Some added curves would’ve been nice
No tie-in to Rogue One
The price increase
Another wasted UCS slot
Two UCS “playsets” in a year
The new minifigures aren’t even that exciting
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

I know, some kind person posted a link on FB, spotted it after having drunk a pint or two...... 5 minutes later, my bank account is £82 lighter.
Would I have still purchased it if I'd been perfectly sober... Who knows?
But. I'm sure I'll be glad I did when it arrives :)
