UCS Falcon and gold C-3PO
Posted 06 August 2007 - 01:40 PM
Will the Limited Edition 10179 all have a Gold C-3PO in them??
Her logic is there are between 1500 and 4500 LE Falcon and 10,000 C-3PO's and nothing aside from the Box and COA making the LE that special.
Anyone heard a rock solid number anyways?
It will aso have the regular C-3PO of course, but, the gold one..............
What do you think, Jamie

1. Assuming the gold c3p0s are RANDOMLY placed, the LE MF only have 4500 (according to your estimate) sets vs say 500,000 of summer sets sold. The 500k is a rough estimate on my part, but you get the idea that itís a much smaller population of sets sold.
2. each set cost $500 vs $20-$100. So if your objective is to net a gold c3p0, you would be foolish to target this set. $500 could have given you 25 tries with $20 sets but it only afford you 1 try with the MF.
The key word here is RANDOM. If they are not randomly placed, then all the above became irrelevant.

In which case dollar for dollar is void.
Maybe she's right, maybe not. Only time will tell. I am leaning toward not, but, I hope I am wrong!
I just though it would something cool to discuss.

Lego should really put the chrome golden one in every UCS Falcon since its a >550Ä set !! (and that would not cost a fortune to put him there |-/ )

Target your purchase on lots of $20 sets if you really want to bag a gold c3p0. for those with bl or ebay stores, your best plan of action is hoth base. The mfs are valuable for army building and should sell well at ebay. So what you do is separate the mfs and the remaining pieces and sell them on ebay. Rinse and repeat until you get a gold c3p0.
The jedi starfighter seems to be the big seller on S@H, but only contains 2 mfs and the set cost $50.

The gold C-3PO is in The Fancon's box ?

(see I ordered one when they first came out yet if I bought it in england there would be no chance of me getting a gold C3P0 anyway? )

I was thinking about this, too.
It would be unfair, if there weren't golden ones in any Falcons, just because of the logic, that people able to afford such an expensive set would get one anyway...
I do not think that TLC's logic works like that.
But then again I'm not in the position to complain, I guess...
There's only a few weeks until I get my hands on that baby!
