Millennium falcon 10179 buying advice

Where would be the best place to look to buy one of these ? Mib is going to be way out of my league price wise so I'm looking for a used one. Maybe a bricklinked one ? I'm not to sure

    What is your price range? What's your maximum you will spend on a one?

    If you just want a display model for yourself, I suggest pulling as many parts from your own collection as you can, substituting interior parts wherever necessary, doing without the most expensive bits, and Bricklinking the rest. It's quite a job, but Rome wasn't built in a day, was it? ;-)

    I heard that if you combine enough BTTF Delorean sets, that it makes a working time machine. I suggest going back to 2009 and buy one new...

    Seriously though, it depends on how "OK" you are with substitutions and the like. If you want it to be exactly like the real thing, several of the parts have gotten REALLY expensive on Bricklink, if you can find them at all. Plus, you'll have to source them from loads of different sellers, which drives up shipping costs. So if you're wanting exactly the real deal, I suggest finding a complete one on Ebay, or keep your eyes peeled for one to show up on Bricklink that isn't a rip off.

    But, like Brickarmor mentioned, if you're willing to substitute for the expensive parts, Bricklinking the set is the way to go. Although, this can be VERY tedious. By the time you're done, you may wish you had ponied up the extra money and just bought one outright.
