  1. It’s a limited production run with a numbered plate. The first 50 are kept for lego employees, set vault, press photos and the like.

    What’s the deal with the 6x pulleys on the drive shaft? Is that to help with the amount of torque the u-joints will be put under?

    BrickLink’s ownership has no bearing on pricing. It’s a bunch of individual sellers who decide what they want for a given product. Supply and demand mostly dictate pricing of a given item, with the added caveat that new items carry a premium (the concept of “first to have it”). The other factor that makes bricklink (and to an extent other selling platforms like EBay) occasionally seem inflated is that one of their mechanisms for setting pricing is to use existing pricing. One seller putting their item very expensive can throw off the entire pricing structure if others are basing their price off the average of all others. brickowl will be no better. Reddit will likely be worse. Taiwanese street vendor isn’t an option for most. Ali express are not a reasonable substitute for most Lego buyers. If you have a secret path with altruistic sellers I am all ears. The most consistently cost effective way to get the figs (in the US) is find a discount on the set, buy and sell without figs.

    You don’t actually understand how Bricklink works, do you?
  5. Or the promo is subsidized by buying the set itself and it gated so you have to buy the shuttle to be able to get it.

    You’re just mad because you’re buying them regardless of what they look like.

    Looks like we’re in the endgame now! First SW and now Marvel, glad to see some attention paid to the consumer.
  9. This is the first one I’m conflicted about. I could justify two falcons by saying I get to display both the OT and ST versions (while also getting the new one with updated building techniques). But there is only one r2d2. Short of modding one to be a different droid I’m not sure what else to do with two. Damn completionist in me.

    I just picked one of these up for my brother last week and was thinking of doing this (tho I’m not sure I am talented enough), so it is a pleasant surprise to see this thread. looks great!
  11. Was it the figure shown in the article with the “who farted, yall?” look? If so, they did the world a favor.

    You can call it UCS if you like. Don’t let others bully you.
  14. Mirko strikes again! The ST movies are mostly forgettable so I’m not surprised I don’t remember the vehicle, but the build looks fantastic. I love that you’re tackling things others haven’t. Expectations for a StarBricks build are high and you certainly seem to have met them yet again! look forward to seeing more and getting my hands on a book, though add me to the camp that has been (im)patiently waiting for the bomber to release first!

    It’s the only modern CMF I have seen Amazon blowing out at 40% (60%?) off by the case. Either over produced, or a dud in the US. Going with dud.
