    Quick update on Bag 16...

    I've just reached step 1208 and only now I've found out where that missing piece was hiding...

    ...phew, another dodged issue! Still to this day not a single set with a missing piece of you don't count promos. Bravo LEGO!





    On a side note loving the construction and engineering behind the cockpit assembly. So close!

    Unfortunately I wasnt able to get one on the 14th but as soon as it pops up again for sale I'm going to jump on it. I know I'll get the falcon eventually, as I am sure it will be available for a long while (once the hype dies down). I'll just be disappointed if I miss out on the black VIP card. I know it seems silly but it looks pretty cool.

    I threw mine out once I realised it was worth £5600.
    A perhaps slightly sobering note on that, I actually know the person who won that auction and they confused GBP with USD (meant to bid $5,600 USD, not 5,600 GBP).... Oops! Just a... small... mistake.

    So I'm not sure if that sale went through or not.

    Still a lot of money either way though :)

    Well my Falcon remains in its wheeled box still...I won't open it until I have the space to display it. My daughter has just gone off to University, so a quick move around of bedrooms and I have a new lego room planned.  I guess another ikea visit too!

    Here's a question for you guys....so my box got kind of banged up in transit. One of the 4 internal boxes had a scratch on it (must have come from the factory since the outer box is fine), but the manual clearly jumped around in the box a lot and damaged the cardboard holding it and the top corner of the manual itself. Worth bugging Lego about? Or do I just shut my pie hole and be glad I got one? I only ask because if I end up having to ever sell this later (if in financial dire straits or whatever), would that be a huge deterrent having a "damaged" box?

    It can't hurt.  I'd at least try and grab some extra VIP points out of it.

    So is it understood that if your order status is Waiting for new stock (which mine is) that you will receive within a month? 

    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 :-(

    HI Sorry I am a bit slow on the uptake.  Are you saying you have found a part in bag 16 that was required earlier in the build?  I tried looking through your postings but couldn't work out the bit you were missing.  Apologies for asking.

    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....

    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.

    Mate, that is just craaaaazy. Was this one that went with the blank vip card / # of 150 card / wristband etc etc that we got on the night?? Which could explain it as these few are indeed 150 of a kind :) I was surprised to see the number being peddled on so quickly afterwards, I remember speaking to people further up the queue and no one said that they were planning to immediately auction their set. It is a shame, as real enthusiasts who are passionate about this end up losing out or succumb to getting fleeced. The TLG chap who I chewed the ear off of whilst I was waiting, he was a nice guy; we swapped email addy's as he has friends near where I live. :)

    Brickpicker is reporting some stores got restock 
    Thank you CM4S, your post prompted me into action.  I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your simple post.

    Through a very strange set of circumstances, a broken down delivery lorry, a disagreement with Lego Customer Services, Making up with Customer Services, a phone call around all the Lego Stores in the majority of East of Anglia and a 5 hour round journey on a whim after work, my household and my unmade Lego corner has a new unexpected arrival.  The store were so kind they even threw a mini launch night  where the shop workers signed my carton.  Throw in a heap of goodies and polybags, all the Force Friday giveaways and I am the happiest Lego fan tonight but exhausted.

    I am even guaranteed a Black VIP Card.  Oh and a wheel fell off my carton, just to replicate Yodel's efforts.


    That's an amazing set of freebies, nice mug aaaand the escape the slug set .... lucky you!!!!!  I am still hunting for one along with the detention centre celebration set

    The Space Slug was old sorry didn't mean to mislead so never got this yesterday,  I got that in 2016 and I got it out of the glass cabinet to get a photo before I opened the new addition and destroyed the carton.  And it seems the mug is available all over the place but it's a nice to have item with the MF theme.

    Oddly my daughter is only fascinated by the yellow wheel.

    Yes. Mine is 093 of the 150 signed copies from the Leicester Square launch. After seeing one go for £5,600, it's taking all my willpower to stay strong.

    It's working so far. :)

    Only reason I haven't opened it yet is I have nowhere to put the finished piece. Girlfriend negotiations are still underway.
    Sell it, buy another one when they are more readily available, and use the rest of the proceeds to enjoy something awesome with your girlfriend. A year from now you won't care if you got it day 1 or da 100

    So, you ordered through them but didn't purchase at the store?  The question is if the discovery center offers the special VIP card if purchased in stock items?

    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.

    Crazy Mofo is putting it mildly, I think :-O

    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

    Does anyone know what info will be on the card besides the persons full name?

    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.

    @Adzbadboy
    From @Mr_Hobbles link above your post, the shop.lego.com page says:

    Will the VIP Number on this card be different from my regular VIP card?
    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.
    So it sounds like your new black VIP card will have the same number as the one you used to buy your set with, not the 1138000xx number.
  • AdeelZubairAdeelZubair London, UKMember Posts: 2,698
    Thanks, hopefully it's just the name and current VIP card number that will be printed onto the Star Wars ones.

    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.

    It says the black VIP card will carry your name and current VIP number.  So you will have two cards and either can be used.  Mine will end up in the display cabinet and I will use my current card in store.

    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..........

    ^ I don't have a smart phone and uploading photos to the net involves my ancient Nikon coolpix, stoking the coals on my iMac and cranking the winch on my old email account to send it to my Gmail account so I can upload it on the Kindle, which is currently the only device that runs the internet without major glitches... and yes, I spent lots of money on Lego rather than upgrade any of my IT junk!

    Just been thinking about the massive price jump for the scalper sales and where it's going to go. It took a while for 10179 to rise, but this one will be interesting. Obviously when the scarcity has gone down and its regularly in stock at Lego stores and online, there's no way scalpers will be able to pull a ridiculous profit. But for those first 100 signed ones... is that $5000 the initial peak, or the beginning of something even more insane?
