Latest Lego Acquisition: Star Wars 7915-1: Imperial V-wing Starfighter

Imperial V-Wing StarfighterMy parting gift from my last job was an HBC gift card which I struggled to spend at The Bay; however, a trip to Zellers allowed me to buy a Christmas gift for my nephew and something for myself.

I prefer the Classic Star Wars Lego over the Clone Wars, even though some of the ships are pretty cool. A lot of the sets being released right now are obviously trying to bridge the gap between the Clone Wars era and the original trilogy. Case in point this set is a tweak of an earlier Republic V-Wing fighter but with darker Imperial colours. Totaling 139 pieces, this was quickly assembled and pretty cool.

Being between jobs gives me more time for my hobbies and since I recently moved but haven’t had the time to really organize the new place until now, I thought I’d finally get around to doing a formal inventory of my Lego collection.

My Lego collection is the only thing I own that’s actually worth money, but I could never part with it. I still get Lego for Christmas every year (recently it’s been Star Wars Lego) and when I have income, I do hunt for older sets on eBay.

This is the first set I have got when I was four or five in the late 70s. I actually have two of this set, but have used one for spare parts for other broken sets.

Early Space Lego only had white and red astronauts. Over time, other colours were added starting with yellow and later, blue and black.
