...Damn we still have to wait two more weeks to go!
There is a big Lego set being released on the 1st October.
Bigger zoomed in shot:
(No clue what was going through my head on this one...)
I would imagine that to build it to the standard of his and use the new cockpit piece would increase the part count well beyond what is coming out.
(Disclaimer: of course what i just said could be complete balderdash so feel free to ignore it at your leisure). :)
It is a good thing that September is a 3 paycheck month :)
I'm praying to any God that will listen that @BooTheMightyHamster is right in his ramblings on page 42 of this thread and they decide to sell it for £200 (or £250 with a decent gift with purchase). :D
As I'm fairly certain that's not going to happen, I hope this set is out a loooong time just to give me a fighting chance of picking one up at a bit of a discount at some point.
Considering the Facebook video has already reached 113K views, you've got to wonder:
14th September could be a fun 24 hours.... I can't wait!
And, the Facebook video has reached 185K views......
14th September could well be another moment in LEGO history @BooTheMightyHampster - when the website finally collapsed and headed towards silicon heaven!
As a nerd, I'm thrilled that this is coming. While I certainly can't afford it right now, it would be great if it's available for a while a la the Death Star. Maybe one day I can afford it. I do start a new job soon as a financial advisor, so after about 9 months of training and studying I'll be setting up shop and hopefully start pulling in enough to grab this.
As for people complaining that it's too expensive and Lego shouldn't have created it to begin with, yes the price tag is high for a 'toy', or even a 'collectible' at this point. But Lego isnt forcing anyone to buy this. It's kind of snobby to say others should be denied the opportunity to buy this simply because you won't or can't get it.
Overall, I'll be excited to see all the details, read the reviews, see how people incorporate this into MOCs, etc. And maybe one day I'll own it as well. Bring it on, Lego!
#75060 there you go!
Jokes aside, I wouldn't mind seeing the Jedi Temple or Kamino taking on Lego form.
The main thing we are all waiting for now is next Tuesday, it would be nice to see what what else Lego can do to tease us - Perhaps something along the lines of...
"The Original Lego UCS Millennium Falcon was £342.49, prepare for the new one to be much more, exactly 2.043855295 times more ;OP"
This puts me in an awkward situation. I have always used the ‘At least I don’t get star wars lego’ as an excuse with the wife for my lego habit of buying modular and super heroes sets (and others that take my fancy). ‘It could be worse, I may have got a death star’ is a justification when buying the entire batman movie range.
But I really want this set. Truth is I have avoided star wars lego because I am slightly obsessive and it is an expensive path to tread and once I dip a toe I can see many more sets getting purchased but I really really really want this set.
I believe Lego has released this as a gateway set to hook me and others into buying their Star wars lego. Then more sets will be released that I have to have, oh look it’s a new Wookie, and the downwards spiral continues until I am sat on a pile of lego making light sabre whoosh sounds playing with a constraction figure.
Maybe a large scale Degobah set with darkside cave, training course, swamp, hut and xwing, but after the Hoth set I think that sort of thing will be given a wide birth by Lego.
I personally would love to see a rebel transporter at UC scale (just love that ship for no good reason).
not sure anything much from Force Awkens stands out enough. If you throw the net wider an UC Ghost from rebels would be nice, likewise a U-Wing from rouge one, a A-wing would be good, but not desperately exciting.
But then after that we have already had versions of the best stuff, so we are into remake territory, at which point going big with the best and arguably the most iconic ship in cinematic history makes sense neither can't wait to see what they have done.
also I think there is something about producing something like this that will grab headlines, which I am sure it will. It is something to aspire to as a collector or fan, something that will only fuel the sense of wonder to the vast majority who will never own it - bring it on...
Somewhere between Bob Hope and No Hope I'm guessing...
Lego is supposed to be built and played with, not displayed.
I already eat my meals over the kitchen sink because I use my (small) dinning table to sort and build my LEGO sets... I guess I will be doing that on the floor after mid-September ;-)
You know tbh, I have fun images in my head when I see a guy playing with such a beast 24/7/365
Edit: Well... you could hide it under a blanket...? This won't equal displaying, right?
Maybe I'll be able to build a good chunk of the new Falcon from my Bricklinked UCS Falcon. That would cut down on the sting. That'd be more reasonable than blowing 3.5 weeks' rent on a shinier one.
Dumb question, but is there any chance this is perhaps in CAD? Inquisitive wallets want to know....
