Not that exact one - No

1250GBP you say

What about the original X-Wing, Tie-Fighter, Y-Wing, Snowspeeder

Not that I have them, but a "friend" does

Well if amazon delivered, you were going to order from them.

Also on the Lego site, it states that this item is 'hard to find'.

Perhaps a large Toys-R-Us type shop would be what you need.

Re: Looking for shop selling Lego Star Wars.

Do you know that you can download instruction manuals from the lego website...?

my son learnt how to browse, download, set the print settings to 4 sheets per page and duplex...when he was 7 years old...but we still go through an exorbitant amount of paper in our household for some strange reason....

Re: Looking for shop selling Lego Star Wars.

You could try Franz Carl Weber on Rue de la Croix-d'Or or Avenue Louis-Casaļ, they have quite a big Lego selection.

Original Lego X-Wing - from around 10 years ago - similar size but smaller to the destroyer.

Not that I have one - obviously.

Re: Looking for shop selling Lego Star Wars.

Probably King Jouet is the biggest around and likely the best chances.

http://www.king-jouet.com

They have stores in Carouge and la Praille. I think the big warehouse one, the old Toys are us store, is the Carouge one, but check the website.

lol you'd love my sons collection then, he has the star destroyer, the death star, the at at etc etc all of them upto the latest clone wars cartoon ones (which are a bit pants)

hopefully it'll be my pension fund lol

Franz Carl Weber only has about 5 lego starwars sets in (all rubbish) we where there at the weekend.

Best bet is from lego direct, never had a problem with them, delivery can be a bit slow tho.

That's not an X-Wing fighter - Set 7191 is an X-Wing.

The friend also has the smaller one - with the Tie Fighter and Y-Wing

Re: Looking for shop selling Lego Star Wars.

Totally off topic, but I happen to know* that Santa is getting me Star Wars box set episodes I-III and IV-VI this year.

Woohooo - back-to-back session called for. I might even get off EF for more than 5 minutes

*I happen to know, because I bought it at LHR T5 when passing through
