[Sold] For Sale: 10179 UCS Falcon MISB (US)
So, I've been feeling somewhat generous lately. Selling off some MISB sets from my stash to those in need here on Brickset. 7676 Republic Gunship, 10194 Emerald Night, 10185 Green Grocer, 10155 Maersk Container (in-progress). I think I've been very fair on pricing - selling under the going rate.
I'm considering selling off one of the 10179 MISB sets I have. It's not the Collector's Edition. It's been in the original brown shipping box since I bought it from the LEGO store several years ago. If there is someone who is wanting a sealed set, who missed out, and wants to actually build the set, PM me with offers or questions. One stipulation. I'm not shipping this baby. You gotta come and get it. I'm in Indianapolis. I'm not risking any sort of shenanigans in the shipping - accidental or otherwise. And I'd prefer not having a PayPal transaction sucking up ~3% of the income. As I said before, PM me if you fit the profile for this deal and are willing to make a fair offer on the set.

Grr... Now @sidersdd makes me want to build it... Sigh...
Build it. Forget the $ value. Lifes to short. Enjoy the build and then work out how to display it.
It was brought to my attention that one alternative for selling this would be without the box. This would make it more viable for shipping - less concern about damaging the pristine box. I'm considering this. And may consider even shipping international. Although it seems USPS has removed insurance from Priority Mail shipments to the UK, so shipping there may be really expensive with third party or Express.
The thing is, will I enjoy building it knowing that I could take my family on a nice vacation for that much money? True, it isn't an either-or, but still, it seems... well... wasteful at this point to crack open a brand new mint condition set.
So what I really want is a non-Collectors Edition set that has been opened or built, a used set would be wonderful. Just have to find a deal on one.
@sidersdd - You can ship USPS to the UK using "Global Express Guarenteed", which is really Fedex, but 30% off Fedex rates, and you get the insurance. Express Mail can have up to I think $600 insurance to the UK, but this is too big for that anyway.
You haven't said what you want for this one yet... ;)
Dude just go for it. I'm stuck here in a hospital bed after being on a vent earlier this week. Only been back into Lego since August so never knew about 10179 to buy one at retail. I decided I wasn't going to pay the high costs. After the last two weeks if and when I'm out I'm having one. I may not even open it carefully ;-) Money comes and goes. More can always be made. Enjoy this awesome set with your family.
