  1. Any ideas on the cost to put one of these together?
  2. 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    If you want to learn more about the MF than 99% of even the die hard Star Wars fans take a looks at this thread: https://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=232123&page=4 Note that the dark stripe came about when they made a digital version of the MF for the Special Editions and was actually only ever used in marketing material (Aka it never appeared in the film). If you scroll all the way down on page 4 you'll see that image and I'd be willing to bet this is what the designers used as reference material. Kind of a bummer. Now to add additional fuel to the fire... In TFA this dark stripe also appears and disappears in the same scene. Scroll to the bottom of this page: https://imgur.com/a/pdEcg I've been told that the dark stripe appeared on the trailer footage but when it all got rolled up for the movie no one went back in and fixed it. I've spent waaay to much time researching the falcon for my own build...
  3. You suck! LOL... How have you managed that? Can't seem to even get the one I ordered from S@H the second it went live. Still says "waiting for new stock..."
  4. [MOC] UCS Tantive IV - CR-90 Corvette

    Wow, just wow! This is incredible! Perhaps my only criticism is how clean it looks. Needs some wear and tear ;-)
  5. I could have told people that before the release. Everyone was hoping they could get the MF with double points. Lego isn't going to let that happen with a set this popular.
  6. [MOC] Naboo N-1 Starfighter + Breakdown

    Unbelievable as usual!
  7. Does anyone know if the manual is available in a digital format anywhere?
  8. 75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    Love the stand! That'll really save some shelf space.
  9. This topic is pretty void of actual content of the kit. Is everyone just flippin' them? Want to hear more about the build, the included pieces, etc... Less about the second hand market and backorders...
  10. LEGO Star Wars 2017 Pictures and Rumors

    This is unbelievable. Our local lego store got 4 in and I was the 5th in line :-( . And I got there at 10PM the night before. And now the website is down. Total crap.
  11. Still nothing at 8AM Eastern time...
  12. It's legit. Check this source out of just screen grabs of the falcon from TFA. I'm been using this exclusively to build my own falcon. You'll notice among quite a few other differences that the TFA Falcon has additional bumps on the front of the mandables. Also fun little trivia, if you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the shots where the falcon is flighting a Tie Fighter you'll see that a couple of the shots have the black streak on the mandables like the TLG Falcon has. But they only appear in a few frames. I've been told that these were from the trailer and they forgot to update them for the final movie. I know way too much about the falcon... http://imgur.com/a/pdEcg
  13. That's what the guy said at the store I visited too. Must cost a lot to ship competed falcons to all the Lego stores!!! Noticed that someone was having fun with yours (its got both sensor dishes mounted and the TFA bit on the nose are tilted up).
  14. I got a handout at the Lego store on the Millennium Falcon and on the back it says "VIPs can buy the set 16 days before anyone else!"
  15. Guys, I had the opportunity to see this thing in the flesh at the local lego store. I've gotta say I'm impressed! Having been in the middle of my own MF MOC the past 6 or so months I can really appreciate the detail and attention to accuracy. It's not perfect, but dang, never thought an off the shelve lego set would get so close. It almost makes me want to abandon my own build and just mod this one instead. Almost... I will still be purchasing it. Perhaps one for display and another for parts. :-) And all those whining about minfigs...will you just stop! I hate to tell you, but a set like this is not for the minifigs!
