  1. Man, it's been nearly a month since the Early Access release. I must admit, I'm surprised that Lego hasn't released the new online batch by now.
  2. Was anyone in the US actually able to order one?
  3. Site is not up in the US. Still can't log in. Managed to log in on mobile. MF still shows Add to Wishlist...
  4. Willing to bet they took LegoID offline to prevent overcommitment.
  5. Can you, or anyone for that matter, show me where Lego actually states that VIPs will get early access to the MF? Because none of the marketing materials that I've received, read, or watched actually states the MF is being provided via VIP early access. Nevermind. I'm a blind idiot. These are not the droids you are looking for...
  6. But an iphone only lasts two years. This will last a lifetime!
  7. This is a day one purchase for me. The challenge will be displaying my BL'd MF and this new one side by side. I have some ideas though. :) Speaking of bricklinked MIllennium Falcons, am I the only one looking forward to buying the masts for a reasonable price via Bricks and Pieces? :)
  8. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    Speaking as someone who bricklinked the UCS MF, I'll be more than happy if/when Lego re-releases this set. There is a distinct difference in the accomplishment one feels when building a complete, off the shelf set and building a set that was pieced together one by one. Each is rewarding in a very different way and only those that have done so will be able to relate. Big thanks to Stash2Sixx for the info. I'm cautiously looking forward to Sept/Oct. :)
  9. [PRESS RELEASE] 75144 Snowspeeder

    I love how so many of us are still optimistic about the re-release of the MF. :) This set will be a day one purchase for me. I've already warned the wife. House purchase be damned.
  10. 2016 UCS Reaction

    Assault on Hoth should not be in the UCS category. Period. It is a play set. Nothing more. Death Star V2 version II (yes, that was intentional) is a cash grab. I'd love to see a reference that shows TLG actually pays Disney and Lucasfilm licensing rights. That makes no sense to me. And on a related note, I feel that disappointment towards UCS sets will always be a "thing" until TLG re-releases 10221, 10179, and/or 10030. Even then, people will still complain.
  11. So is ordering tied to each time zone's crossing into June 1? I really want to pick this up as soon as it comes out. :)
  12. Bricklinking the UCS MF was one of the most rewarding lego experiences I've ever had. Yes, it was expensive even though I cut many corners (I refused to pay $200 for the engine parts) and it was still worth every penny. Call it what you want but until you've actually assembled a UCS MF then you really don't know what you are missing.
  13. I was honestly underwhelmed with the first round of TFA lego sets and was hoping the release of the movie would yield more interesting designs. Now my only hope are the potentially unannounced UCS sets. Here's to hoping...
  14. 10179 Millennium Falcon Mods

    My apologies for the months late response. My UCS stand is a modified version of the stand in The Tumbler (76023). I simply made it larger so the modified stand could accommodate all five of the UCS MF minifigs. Sadly, I never took an inventory of the extra pieces that I bought because I already owned The Tumbler at the time. I simply looked at the stand and estimated how many extra pieces I would need to buy.
  15. YABUM (Yet Another Bricklinked UCS MF)

    Welcome to the club! Once you've finished your build I'd love to hear what you think about the black lattice substitution for the engines. I initially went that route but did not like how the substitution changed the aesthetics of the engines. Ultimately, I opted for the engine mod created by Pepa Quin and made famous by ScottishDave (he put LEDs in there!).
