  1. No. I'm pretty sure they're identical. I don't think Azog was listed as an exclusive... same way Bard the Bowman wasn't the following year.
  2. I think people are looking way too much into this. It is one of the biggest sets period... it just happens to be the biggest. Has anyone read some of the stuff that goes on set descriptions? It literally sounds like Google Translate had a brain fart at times. Chances are this was written by a non-native English speaker (albeit one who is completely fluent) and they just wrote it that way. This isn't one of those leaker codes where people read the capital letters in a sentence to get the name of a future set.

    I have, but the Falcon is still sealed at the moment until I get the time to have a good go at it. I'm sure there are many others on this board who have, or will have, both.
  4. I'm pretty sure Hot Toys are making an Executioner Stormtrooper so it must be something that's getting pushed as a figure if we're seeing torch versions etc.
  5. Post your general LEGO Star Wars questions here

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned it before but I thought I'd ask. Red Five 10240 UCS set has always had a woefully undersized R2 unit seeing as they put a regular minifig in it... How good a fit is the polybag buildable R2's dome for that scale? Would be if a better fit for the UCS size?
  6. I don't think the system scale Falcon will take anything away from sales of the UCS Falcon... if anything I think the UCS Falcon might point sales towards a system scale one... there'll be loads of kids who'll get that after asking for the large one...
  7. Well mine has arrived and is sat behind me... Box was packed into the outer cardboard box which actually still had the 'don't place on a shelf before October 1st' on it. There was a second outer box that had been smacked around but the outer box was perfect and obviously the main box was also perfect. I'll be starting, albeit it tentatively, this evening... Maybe one bag or two... Hopefully I can grab some time this week so really get stuck into it. Worst case scenario my wife is out on Saturday evening so I know I'll get some time then. The box is just so big!
  8. Post Your Superhero Minifig Collections Here!

    I know exactly what you mean... but there have been 3 or 4 of them done that can sit alongside any of Lego's official releases and they'll fit right in. There's a Bones that was done and the printing is superb.

    You're right, it is someone else's job. Your own.
  10. I'm in a similar situation. Hopefully I'll have room on top of a bookshelf that is quite deep. I'm interested in knowing the same measurement.

    So you're going to place a review on something you don't own? A review that should show what you thought of the build, the quality of the design, the packaging and everything else involved? A review should not be about your experience of trying to buy something unsuccessfully. That's something entirely different. How old are you? I don't think I was harsh... quite the opposite actually.

    Anyone who reviews something they don't own with a low rating simply because they were unable to buy it is a special kind of idiot.
  13. Mine is now at my couriers local depot and the VIP points have now been added to my account so it looks like they've started to get things together. Interesting if it's true that stores are already getting some new stock... I wonder if the additional stock was already assigned for distribution so wasn't sold as part of the online sale.

    Noones getting rich on one extra Falcon. They're selling for £900 on eBay. Take your 10% EBay fees + PayPal fees and you're getting less than £800 for it. With £650 outlay you're making less than £150. Nobody that's laid out £1300 in one shopping trip at a Lego store considers that 'rich'. Factor in that most people on this thread would then consider the person doing it a bit of an ar**hole and I wouldn't say it was worth it. It's silly that people are paying almost £5 for the leaflet but for some reason I get the feeling people think it's the instruction booklet.
  15. I don't think they'll have any on the 1st. And buying three to flip at a profit? Have you read the last few pages of the thread? Are you missing the general mood of people that are genuinely wanting to buy one?
