    Why oh why can I not post a meme?

    You can, but you probably shouldn't ;-)

    On topic (I think): What are the chances that such a (rumored) large set with a big price tag will be a limited release? Just a few sets being produced and some of us might not be able to grab one? :-( Should I go and camp out of the LEGO store now?

    As long as it remains a good seller I don't see why Lego (or Disney) would quit making it. Look at Petshop.

    It appears that the only thing more interesting to discuss than a retired UCS Falcon is a reincarnated UCS Falcon.

    Is it really going to be $800 US? That's pretty steep.

    I still want it though.

    Here's a summary of what we know so far

    75192 Millennium Falcon releases around October for $799.99

    Includes two satellites for both ESB and TFA versions, around 7500 pieces

    Comes with Hoth Han Solo, Hoth Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO, Old Man Han Solo, Finn, Rey, BB-8, maybe more.. and a brickbuilt Mynock

    Also has an interior

    :)
    But do we know... Really... 

    I'll hope we do!

    But if the piece count is actually going to be near or around 7,500, then the price is very justified, especially with Disney tax.

    Exactly. If it was priced using the usual $0.12 per part like most Star Wars sets, it could have actually been $900-$950.

    So $800 is quite fair all things considered

    Those hot dogs from Wegman's someone recommended a couple hundred comments ago were pretty good on the grill.  Thanks.  I also hear there's a new UCS Millennium Falcon coming out.  Pretty cool.

    I suspect it will be available for more than one Star Wars film. It would be a good tie in to the upcoming Han Solo origin movie

    Not only do I not have $800 for Lego, I don't have the room for a set like this.  What I would like, though, is a to scale cockpit from the Falcon.  It would make a neat display piece.  Sure, I could make my own :)

    I was wondering how the UCS MF looks all tiled up on the top. Would it look more finished and UCS'ey ? Has anyone tried that?
  • VortexVortex Pakistan/USMember Posts: 342
    i suppose due to its circular shape it can't be tiled flawlessly. ending up looking not very neat at all

    A white rangefinder is not a myth, I heard it from my father’s brother’s nephew’s cousin’s former roommate that there will be a Gold Boba Fett (with a white rangefinder) in random UCS Millennium Falcon boxes (2,000 in all). [...]
    @VorpalRyu How does that work? Your uncle's nephew is not your father's nephew? I don't know if I can trust this info when the source is so questionable.

    With all the off topic (and complaining about it) going on, I have to point out that this kind of going off topic realy makes me happy to be a member of the Brickset community:

    Got any more info on the Cars 3 Juniors set? My grandson loves Disney Cars, and I'm sure it will be easier on the wallet than any UCS Falcom that may eventually show up.
    SumoLego said:
    ^ There's a bunch of different sets available.  I was grousing about them at Target the other day.
    Like a sidestep some pretty random remark gets taken this seriously and then we all go on. I love it when that happens. Only on Brickset it seems.

    @CM4S How credible are these things 'we know' at this point?

    It ended up being 6 of the same picture in a row but to be fair to EB this is where they are good at moderating. They just come along and take out the pictures and replace it with:

    "Please don't quote images"

    This is just a nice polite reminder to people, if only that was how all the moderating was done on their it would be a much nicer site to use.

    Now I have seen two posts be edited by moderators recently in this thread, there was no explanation. Maybe the people involved got pm'd I don't know. But I think if you are going to remove memes and swearing adding a little note when doing so is helpful to everyone.

    Also can I ask what is the point of the memes ban when you are allowed to post a meaningless picture then comment after it. If this thread is what people want including mods then why ban memes in the first place. If people want this kind of 'fun' then memes would add to it.

    Or if you mods want the site to be a little more grown up and to be a place where people can talk about their hobby then your going to have to put something in place a little more comprehensive than just banning memes. I don't understand this pointless no mans land we are in at the moment.

    Incorrigible.  

    ^ You do realize you're off-topic?  You ought to take the above EB Forum criticism to the EB mods, and criticism of the moderation of this Forum to the appropriate topic.  It's a bit hypocritical for you to complain about meme banning and post editing in a thread dedicated to rampant, unsubstantiated rumor-mongering and baseless speculation.
    SMC said:

    Can I start a letter-writing campaign at EB to un-ban you?  Perhaps your activist self-appointed moderation would serve that forum better.

    Also, to summarize:

    1)  No box art has been leaked.  In fact, one image posted in this thread was fake.

    2) The [email protected] site had a 'coming soon' splash page, but it had since been removed.

    3) Somebody took a photo of a retail Lego Store inventory search indicating a large D2C set had a price set at $799.00.

    4) There's a Design video where designers are playing with a Space Slug cut-out and a mini-scale Millennium Falcon.

    5) And Blocks posted a vague UCS MF rumor.

    You slipped a post in there and completely confabulated my post reference carat thingys.  Thankfully, I quoted the post, so others can still understand what I am referring to.  (I think that is why there is the option to quote a previous post.)

    Yep, apparently it's "UCS" but costs €99 (in my opinion a UCS set can't cost that little). It should be roughly to scale with the UCS R2-D2 so expect it to be blocky.

    Somewhere there is a rule about you being banned from using sarcasm.  I suspect it is self-imposed, as with the rest of your micromanaging suggestions.

    Clever ;)

    The stark contrast being you try lecturing the whole forum constantly, whereas I'm only addressing you.

    There is an incredible irony in that as much as you complain about the forum being off topic you as an individual take it off topic probably more than anyone else in this entire forum.

    And yes, I do wish the moderators would step in to stop your constant shenanigans as I feel it is a constant distraction. It is the "off topic" conversation that annoys me the most... it's like having a person the same age trying to act like a chaperone, watching over your back and constantly interrupting while everyone else just tries to have a good time- talking about weather, sausages, explosions, and occasionally LEGO.

    I am very carful about which topics I take off course with my comments, do you see me do it in any other discussions at the moment? I feel free to do it here because the discussion is already off topic in the first place.

    I try and add to the forum, how many times have I been the first to pass on news about upcoming sets here:

    http://bricksetforum.com/discussion/24229/leaks-and-more-leaks#latest

    I tried to get a conversation going about BB8 in the star wars thread by bring news about the new set. Interestingly my comment here was picked up over on eurobricks and I was thanked over there.

    The problem is that people don't respond that much to the Lego news I or other people post they would much rather argue with me here. A lot of the time I am just responding to a comment like I am now.

    Where as other people who shall remain Sumo nameless interrupt the rare few conversations about Lego on the forum to make silly comments which then derail the whole thread. They don't do it in just one discussion at a time and I think this is much more damaging for the site.

    And lets no forget I am one of the few people here that would like nothing more than to talk about the forthcoming MF.
