Bargain Bricks: Episode 5 – Imperial Flagship

Welcome to Bargain Bricks: Episode 5! This week, we are continuing to search through the 30 pounds of bricks I shared in Episode 3. However, unlike last week’s sojourn into Star Wars with the Sith Nightspeeder, this week we return to Pirates (like episode one). Not only that, we are looking at the Imperial Flagship (6271), which was the whole reason I bought the bin in the first place. Right out of the bin, the set was 93%. I spent a pretty penny completing it on Bricklink. However, this was one of my dream sets as a kid, and it was a blast to finally get to build one (30 years later). Catch the episode below!
