  1. 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...
  2. 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.
  3. Still nothing at 8AM Eastern time...
  4. 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
  5. 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).
  6. 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!"
  7. 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!

    I could sure use that part on a few MOCs I'm working on right now (to include my own MF)!

    Here it is! Sorry if this is a repost.

    He made it a point to say that his sources were not the bulletin boards when I questioned him.

    Fuel to the UCS MF fire... On vacation to Seattle right now and stopped at a local brick shop. They had several 1st edition UCS Falcons and said they sell about 1 a month in the $5-6k range. HOWEVER, he told me that he is basically "fire-selling" another 4 of them before the end of next month for a price of around $4k. I was playing dumb and pried a bit on why the urgency. He told me that he had several concrete sources that a new Falcon was on it's way in September and was very worried about what that was going to do to the resale value of is current Falcons. He said a lot of other things that have already been rumored about several times here like the price being more than the original one, the canopy, etc... Seemed pretty legit but who knows. I guess we'll all find out in a month...
  12. [MOC] Millennium Falcon (40th Anniversary)

    This is a fantastic MF! Very well done. Would love to own something like this. Can I add my vote to recreate this beauty in LDD so parts list and instructions would be available? I would be happy to help in any way and would gladly pay for the finished product!
  13. Where are people seeing pics of this new snowspeeder?
  14. Build Your Own Plus Size AT-AT

    Just finished Bricklinking... Had 48% of the parts, the rest set me back $180 shipped. I'm excited!
