    @Astrobricks I did mine in 22 hours. That's right out of the box. Now the parts are in my collection, so it would take me a lot longer.
    I don't know if I could ever bear to take it apart once I'd built it! Crossing my fingers I'll get to find out.
    Yeah I took mine apart once, though not through choice...



    OMG!  How'd that happen?

    One of my cats jumped up onto the chest of drawers on the right, got the jump slightly wrong and grabbed hold of the falcon as she was falling.

    5 hours to take it apart and make sure I had all the pieces, 12 hours to rebuild...

    Dang!  That's crazy!   Stinking cats.   Were you just gutted when it happened?

    It was one of those moments in life which appear to happen in slow motion. You see it but are powerless to do anything. Truth be told I actually couldn't help but laugh, of all the sets it could have happened to of course it had to happen to the biggest. 

    At at least I got to enjoy the build again.

    ^ Jealous you didn't think of it first?

    By the way, the Forum Police is going to attempt to apprehend you via a 'Citizen's Arrest.'  You better finda-finda Captain Tarsels to bail you out.

    I hope the cat is alright. 

    Oh, wait, I'm in a AFOL forum...  I hope the MF is alright. :-)

     This was the day before a show. I had it back together in about 3 hours.

    Isn't this just the alternative version of Empire?  Rebels succeed at Hoth, Luke never goes to Dagobah and Han and Leia never go to Bespin.  As a result Han and Chewie lead the assault on Death Star II but are unsuccessful because the strike force can't disable the shield generator, Death Star II gets completed and blows up thousands of teddy bears as its first target, and Luke lives comfortably ever after as a moisture farmer on Tatooine with two hands and no knowledge of his parentage.

    ^ @pharmjod - I'm laying low and trying to avoid the Forum Fuzz.  I don't want to be accused of making an AT-AT graveyard.

    ^ +1, this, thumbs up!

    I meant on the box graphics.  I would've been sold if there were more than one, but less that eight explosions on the box.

    You can tell that the font type isn't standard font. That jumped out at me right away.

    Also, the photos are of mediocre quality and poorly Photoshopped.

    But the minifigs on the top of the box appear to be from the Death Star.

    Ok let's be real: If I were to bet money today, I would put my money on "no new UCS Millennium Falcon is announced within a year." People want it to happen, and so they believe. The website evidence was something, but as the days go by I put the odds lower and lower.

    @Bobflip: That's not what I meant. I meant it would be easy to take a picture of the old one and Photoshop it onto a "new" box then hide it behind the Snowspeeder set so that everybody would think it's real.

    We just started tabulating explosions correct? I think 2000 explosions in such a short time is pretty good ;)
