70816 - Benny's Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!

Recommended Posts

I plan on picking up 4-5 this year.  Does that sound unreasonable?  I usually pick up sets that are closer to retirement but since I can get them a B&****** for under $60.  Plus there is always that wildcard of that set being sold out during Christmas so they might go for $140 on ebay and then after the holidays use that money to pick up 8-10 of those sets.  Thoughts?

After receiving this set from LEGO S@H, I am not that excited about it.  Too expensive.  I appreciate the effort, but I came away unimpressed.  I wish I could really love it for that money.  Maybe it's the small box that makes me feel that way.

 

A new condition coined only here, box envy.  :clapping:

Ed, what do you mean by box size? Like since this isn't the next box size up, like the size of the 7965 box?

The box seemed small to me for a $100 set.  I know LEGO is shrinking boxes, so maybe my assessment is skewed.  I was hoping to be really impressed with this set in particular, being that the Galaxy Explorer was one of my favorite sets of all time.

Yes box shrinkage might do the trick.... I am happy for the boxes being smaller though!
