  1. Just finished this build with my kids last night. Took the same amount of time to build as it took to watch all 10 star wars movies. :) 

    Impressive model to say the least. Worth the purchase without a doubt! Now to find a place to display it with my Falcon and Slave 1 ucs models.   Looking forward to seeing mods. Added a number of 2x2 flat square tiles in various spot around the engines and a few other areas around the bridge. 

  2. Lego store in Vancouver area got 22 in this week. Not sure how many are on the waiting list but thats it for this year. I have a feeling they will never be able to keep up with the demand and they will likely lose the license in a couple years never catching up with production. The new han solo movie coming out in the summer will only sky rocket demand even further.

    Awesome MOD... with LEDs should I worry about how long I have the lights on, and whether or not it's going to melt or deteriorate the plastic? Any thoughts? 

    Thanks! No worries about heat or melting. Some high power LED's do put out lots of heat, but not these little strip LED's, mine are cool to the touch after hours of use 

    There's no UV being emitted by these lights not to worry unless you get uv bulbs

    Welp I sold 8 of them for a total of $15,000 Usd.

    I spent $10,000 on them.

    No profit? I think not.

    Get your damn facts right a-hole! I never talked to you before.

    Ohhhh nooooo Don't have a stroke guy you'll piss away that giant profit on nurses feeding you pee soup! Hope you quit your job and retired on those massive profits. "Aggron444....Set for life reselling kids toys....winning!"

  5. Good luck.  You already overpaid on Ebay likely by a hell of a lot and you think you'll resell them in a week for even more when the same morons have been trying to sell on ebay for a couple weeks and can't find a sucker? Keep those 9 boxes taking up space in your house or some storage locker you pay $50 a month for for the next 15 years and hope lego does't build yet another or the market isn't so flooded with these for so many years that no one on the planet would ever need another. You want to make money in life work hard or learn how to invest in real investments like stocks. 

    These guys have been trying to sell since the last shipment came into the local lego store and still can't find any inpatient idiots willing to overpay for something that will be widely available for years. I can't stand individuals always looking to profit in any stupid way they can think of. There was a clown here who bought 2 on Sept 14th. He listed them on craigslist for $3000. The following week 5 more got released thats when I got mine he dropped to $2500. The week after that 8 more got released he dropped to $2000. The same idiot is now trying to desperately sell the same 2 for $1100 just to get his money back.  People like that deserve to be stuck with it for years. Some other person that wanted to build it could have received those 2 instead you have a tool who trys to make a quick buck and now karma bites him in the a$$. Soon he'll have to sell it for what he paid and keep the vip points he got for his asshattery! He likely will never manage to sell them as people want their own vip points. I exchanged some emails with this guy. His job? "Toy reseller". How's that working out? Get a real job! 

  6. On mine its a gentle twinkle not overly fast or slow but feels like the engines are powered up. The don't go from dim to full power they just go slightly dimmer then back to full so it' s nice easy on the eye effect. 



    As for Leia and 3PO don;t they just stand in the movies behind the seats? Don;t forget to add a smooth round button trans red button between the consoles. "Whats that flashing!"

  7. Makes good use of the landing gear anchor points. Lets you keep the middle torrent. All a plus! The other stand in the center point was also good and realistically you're not displaying the back since its got a stand in the way. Has anyone thought about hanging for a ceiling with fishing line? 50 pound test perfect for the job. 

  8. Mine comes up from the gun turret into the empty back right area then goes to the right turns around in the that empty space there then doubles back to the other side then into that empty space in the far left turns back to double up the left side and ends in the center back.  Your back being custom might be different then what I was able to do. 

  9. Incredible work on those underside details. If I had the parts and it was more visible I'd want to do those upgrades. How will you be displaying your ship? Hopefully you'll have a way to show off all that work. 

    That ramp needs t be upgraded. Needs some light grey strips on each side and black tiles up the middle of it. It's almost embarrassing having the ramp down.

    With this new MF... the UCS Slave 1 set seems to be a perfect companion basically at the same scale. Has anybody both?

    I don't own the 2nd Falcon yet (Backordered...), but as far as i know it is the same size as the old one. So here are some pictures i took for you.

    According to this it looks like the scale is not the same. As far as i read, the MF is a little bigger than minifig scale. There is a lot of discussion about this, so don't kill me if I am wrong, I just don't care that much.

    Hope this helps to answer your question.

    EDIT: I just recognized that i am NOT in the MF thread, so I guess it would be better to switch into the other thread for such questions.


    The new falcon is bigger and scales well with slave 1. The blue lights are nice under slave 1 as well. 


  11. I have a feeling they will be selling thousands of these. Maybe I should buy them all up and be the sole distributor! 




    I actually like the look of the blue tubes they provide. They are well done. That being said I have no idea how you guys build with the 1x2 trans blue pieces. Is there a step by step somewhere I can look at and see how it looks? I'd have to brinklink those parts if its the way to go. Maybe build the gray rigging thing they use? Need to find a better picture of the engines from movie set photos. 


    Check this thread page 11 some interesting options for the engines.





    Can't figure out how they built this one but it looks really good. 


    This is from the movie not sure how to make this look out of lego but I'm thinking the gray ladder thing is really not even close. Most dont seem right/ They look like a bunch of square holes in a grill. Almost like a florescent light cover in an office building. 


  12. 8 days 35 hours. Added a lot of extra flat tiles parts pipes/hoses etc to the outside to improve the look and limit the well balanced stud to flat look. Added blue LED string to the engines. Looks absolutely incredible all done up and on display. I'll likely wait a while and see what other mods people come up with and play around some more if need be.  I started out doing this for the kids since they have been into star wars lego now I'm totally into it after making this bad boy! 

    On a side note, given the complexity of all these pieces dusting would be a nightmare. I also don't want to knock a piece off when cleaning because I'll never figure out where it came from, so the sides of the coffee table are sealed with plastic wrap to keep the dust out. It's works like magic. Easy to apply and not a single wrinkle. You can't even tell anything is there.
