Since we're three weeks into the new year -- and I finally got my new catalog -- let's take a look at some of the sets that might be good for MFZ.
75076 Star Wars Microfighters Republic Gunship. 105 Pieces for $9.99. Should make a good IO Frigate.
75077 Star Wars Microfighter Homing Spider Droid. 102 Pieces for $9.99. Looks like it could be an Ijad frame.
75086 Star Wars Battle Droid Troop Carrier. 565 Pieces for $39.99. 14 Droid bodies and a bunch of SNOT pieces.
75078 Star Wars Imperial Troop Transport. 141 Pieces for $12.99. The minifigs are useless but the main build should be possible to tighten up the main build into an IO Frigate.
75090 Star Wars Ezra's Speeder Bike. 253 Pieces for $19.99. A fair amount of SNOT, a new piece, and a decent selection of colors.
70817 Batman & Super Angry Kitty Attack. 115 Pieces for $9.99. Plenty of SNOT, plus back versions of these.
21301 Birds. 580 Pieces for $44.99. A lot of plates, but also a lot of SNOT, a large selection of colors, and 13 different Medium Blue pieces.
70223 Icebite's Claw Driller. 629 Pieces for $49.99. A wide selection of SNOT, Technic, and colors along with several new pieces.
70228 Vultrix's Sky Scavenger. 480 Pieces for $39.99. Ditto.
31031 Rainforest Animals. 215 Pieces for $14.99. A fair amount of SNOT, Hinges, Clip Plates, and colors. Plus it's $0.07 per piece.
I've got more sets on my list, so I'll drop Part 2 later this week.
