On a side note loving the construction and engineering behind the cockpit assembly. So close!
So I'm not sure if that sale went through or not.
Still a lot of money either way though :)
I actually thought I scored one today, called my Lego store 45 mins from work. Gave my co worker my cc and VIP card, they rolled out box, asked card then....they asked for id, he called to tell me and I asked if I could verbally approve. They said no :-(
Scalpers seem to be getting more and more impatient these days just to make at most £100 profit give or take that they have to post their Lego order form as their listing photo, also gives you the impression he is trying to "show off".
And he's obviously bought 3 of them, 3 of which could be in the hands of genuine AFOL's, and he calls himself a LegoStarWarscollector tut tut....
Oh wow! I see a lot of upset people in his future :-O
I'd love to hear why someone thinks this is worth $5600, or GBP. Genuinely, I would. I expected the set to maybe double initially and increase over time, by I'm really surprised how quickly it accelerated.
Oddly my daughter is only fascinated by the yellow wheel.
£6.99 and on Prime.
My thoughts exactly, i could go travelling for several months with that sort of money, and im sure that would bring me way more fun and happiness and great memories than building that set could ever do.
One day of waiting in cold / rain and six days of building she's finally landed! I'll be posting a review sometime this week.
Now off to find a large enough backdrop for the photographs...
I really do mean I've cut the tape seals on the actual box. I've looked inside at the user manual and seen the 4 tape sealed inner boxes (but not opened those).
Before I cut the seals, the better half suggested I keep this one MISB and buy another to build. I said something like, "I'm not keeping a massive box hanging around for 10 years to try and make a grand or two. This thing won't be anywhere near as valuable as 10179. I think the edge has been taken off by Lego re-releasing this set.". How wrong/stupid can I be?!
I don't buy Lego as an investment. I buy it for me. I'm just not that sentimental about signed stuff. Seeing those prices, I think I would have been saner to sell mine and buy another unsigned one.
When I cut the seals, I knew I was losing out on a high value sale, but I honestly didn't think the world was this crazy in such a short space of time.
Of course, you have to realise, it's idiots like me who buy Lego to build it that mean the MISB sets are worth so much :-D

My VIP is connected with my mum's LEGO ID but now she doesn't use it anymore so I changed the name to mine but it says if I separate the two the points will be wiped. Given I have £95 of points I won't be doing that yet but hoping I won't have to and that it's just the full name used on the VIP card with a random card number. Hoping nothing from the LEGO ID is transferred over to the Star Wars VIP card.
From @Mr_Hobbles link above your post, the shop.lego.com page says:
Existing members will keep their existing number. It will be printed on both their original card and the Star Wars™ collectible one. They can be used interchangeably.
I'm guessing the ones the first 100 purchases of the set last week were just collectibles much in the way the certificate were given out for #10179 - Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon. Glad I don't need to be taking that one out and using it.
Unless waving a black VIP has perks like an airline VIP card. Imagine that, access to a Moss Eisley style lounge bar though the back of the Lego shop for VIP card holders. I can only dream..........
Having said all that, she's a lot of lady to fit in one picture anyway! ;-)
