For those of you who don't know what Bricklink is—it's a site where you can purchase any and every part or component made by LEGO in either Used or New condition from seller's throughout the world! Boasting over 620,000 registered members, there's no part you can't find on here! Also, The Lego Group (TLG) acquired the website back in 2019, so as to the reliability of the site, it's quite reputable. Obviously, with all sales being conducted by user-owned shops, there are a few bad eggs you can encounter, but that's nothing a quick check of their feedback can't help solve. Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the site, and then come back to this article as I'm going to break down for you how to search for stores with groups of parts that will allow you to build the Bespin™ Duel set!
Parts: Wanted List Search
On Bricklink, there's a feature that allows you to Part Out a Set and add the components to what's called a Wanted List. Essentially, what this will do is add the entirety of the parts required to build a set—for this example, Bespin™ Duel (75294). Simply follow the instructions below:
Hover over the Want menu option
On the dropdown menu, click the Part Out menu option
Next, enter the set number—for Bespin Duel it's 75294 (but you can do any set)
Once you've entered the set number, click the √ and the set will appear with more options below
Next, input a unique name for your Wanted List—I've found it's best to use the Set Name—then Submit for Edit
This will bring up a list of all the parts needed to complete the set. You can cross-reference with whatever parts you have on-hand and add and subtract as needed based on what you already have.
Lastly, scroll down to the bottom and hit Add to Wanted List—this will create lists of all the parts you'll need to complete the build. Bricklink does the heavy lifting here and will notify you of all the stores that have these parts in their inventory and will give you their details based on price, quantity or other factors.
Now, this may take a few orders to gather all the parts together, and most notably you probably won't be able to get the figures for very cheap, but if you have your own figures already you can just simply substitute them for the official set figures. The plaque may be problematic as well, but you can also substitute that for the 40th Anniversary plaque that came with the cheaper anniversary sets that were released back in 2019.
