And now i read it's gonna be maybe 2018 before it's available again.... WTF!?!?
LEGO doesn't even offer it for 'backorder'... Do any of you think they will at least accept backorders again begin october 1st?
O well, patience is a virtue...
It took the Millennium Falcon 12 parsecs to make the Kessel run, do you really expect delivery faster than that?
I wouldn't get away with getting my parents & siblings to pay for it as a Christmas present if I open it before Christmas Day. :) I'll start dropping not so subtle hints soon.
On an unrelated note, I almost wish we had just driven out to Dulles and payed to park at the Udvar-Hazy Center where we were headed for the day. It took us two and a half hours using mass transit, although it as at least an easily navigable system.
Or you know, make enough of your flagship product to go around. But I suppose they got caught off guard, I mean it isn't like Star Wars is popular or the last version of the MF was selling for many thousands of dollars. How could they have known?
Messaged the seller who indeed confirmed it was him and went on to say he had every intention of buying two that evening. Really really wound up about it and pray the purchaser screws him over somehow. Disgusting.
I really wish LEGO hadn't done this. It's beginning to leave a bitter taste on what had been a pleasurable experience. They should have just done a preorder like they did #10179.
Now that's greasy. I don't fault anyone who waited in line for selling at the prices these things are going for, but when someone games the system like that and then profits off of it, I completely understand the anger.
I've just finished Bag 10, only to realise my little brother picked out a small grey wedge plate from my chest pocket as I was carrying him. I was confused at first as I never knew how it got there. After inspecting it it was definitely from this set, sharp corners and no dents.
The next question was where does it go, it got me very nervous, the idea of tearing the model apart. Luckily I found out with a quick look at the model from various angles and compared each side only to realise it was meant to go on the bottom front surface. I worked on that bag two days ago so it must have been in there all that time, must have slipped into my pocket as my chest hit the desk. Phew, dodged that one!
Paid pre-orders may or may not have helped. $800 is a lot of money to tie up for several months. If only 1000 people were willing to prepay, would LEGO have been right to cancel production due to lack of interest?
Wonder how long before Lepin comes out with the updated Stnr Wnrs Falcon...? I hope soon cuz I'm really disappointed at Lego and their bs excuse over this nonsense... "oh we're so sorry but we didn't realize there was such a demand for this set"!!
I was really anxious about leaving the queue at any time. We were urged not to leave and if we needed the loo we could use their staff facilities, although it did have a baby changing unit in it so it may have been for customers.
After a few hours and after we'd got to know our neighbours a little better, we slowly braved it and ventured a little further afield. After we'd received our numbered cards @DarthMorl and I found ourselves in Burger King for 20 minutes having a video chat with @Pitfall69 and his wife. A mother and son in front of us made their way to Oxford Street I think. F knows how they got away with that.
