    Surprised to see a non first edition #10179 go on Ebay yesterday for $3500.  Either that buyer is way out of the loop, or maybe they are thinking value won't plummet as much as I think it will.

    The packaging reminds me more of the Porsche packaging, rather than the GBHQ or any of the 'conventional' sets.

    I may have to dismantle my bricklinked 10179. Although the new one undoubtedly looks better, it looks similar enough that I wouldn't want to have them both on display at the same time (and concerns about where to put 2 behemoth sets).

    I can see plenty of people here looking to buy that already have #10179 and then the uninitiated partner pipes up "why are you spending £650/$800 on that? It looks exactly the same.".

    Look at the UCS releases that have come out over the past few years...haven't they all tended to align with the current branding art of whatever was being used at the time?
    No they haven't.
    Yeah my bad...I don't know why I thought that. They share a black trim around the sides. Something still looks weird about it. But watch it be the new standard. Seems like an awful lot of black on the box though...

    Was it an auction or Buy it Now?

    ^That guy is going to be seriously disappointing when he realizes the 5000+ new hits to his video are from Brickset...
    It seems the account name matches the name put in description as designer of the Move-It system. So if LEGO is buying few thousands of these,  he does not care about some video hits ;)

    I don't understand why they are waiting until the 14th to sell it. Just got off the phone w/my local LEGO store. Open only to VIP on the 14th... Seems like they will miss the excitement gained by the hype for this Friday.

    I personally can't wait for this set to come out. Only getting back into Lego in 2015 I missed a lot of great sets that now command TOO much money, so will definitely be getting this ASAP. Although not looking forward to the Australian Lego tax LOL.

    Buy it now I believe.

    ^ Prices will continue to fall, especially for used. $1,600 is the floor methinks.

    Hehe do u think they'll update shop.com at 12:00 p.m. midnight tomorrow? And when does Brickset get those quality images for their database? At reveal or rather at release...?

    It's funny because I can't remember ever hearing a set be released where it will be on display in the stores but not officially revealed before? I know the closet lego store to me opens in the mall at 10 am. So does that mean lego will announce it that morning? I would assume it would be prior so perhaps tomorrow I mean the hours are slipping away!
  • gmonkey76gmonkey76 ChicagoMember Posts: 1,780
    ^No the update will be at 6 a.m. by then all the good sales, and battle packs will be sold out. Best thing to do is add the stuff you may want to your cart, and see the price on check out.

  • PapaBearPapaBear East CoastMember Posts: 505
    How do we know the leaked image is not a counterfeit knock off?

    Also, it's not in English.  Can someone translate Millennium Falcon Lego Star Wars for me
  • large88large88 The NetherlandsMember Posts: 15
    ^not 100% sure until the release on Force Friday (tomorrow, yay!) I suppose...

    But it does seem to match the outlines visible on one of the first teasers.
    So we're not 100% sure, but yeah we are 100% sure this is it...

    Haha I'm not so sure the Australian time zone counts xD Looking at Billund it would be around 14 hours ;D

    Would be awesome tho, our wait would be shortened by 7 hours ^^

    Are memes allowed on the brickset forum?

  • BartelasBartelas Hiking Into Mordor Member Posts: 130
    Hehey errybody!
    I am selling a brand new 10179 for 599.69$ only!
    Everything is included, including everything (even some minor mishaps)!!!
    The instruction manual is hella shit!!!
    The minifigures are fu*ked, literary fu*ked!!!  
    Some bricks are missing or are broken like my heart which got convinced to buy this crappy lepin version as the price was attractive, but frankly that's the only good thing about this knockoff!
    Buy it now and share my emotions! (pls I beg u <3)

    So I talked about getting the MF with my girlfriend (almost wife) over dinner last night and she wants me to give a 20 minute long presentation (excluding video) in my Kylo Ren cosplay with at least 15 good reasons why I want the set. Game on.
    That is awesome. 
  • waynlewiswaynlewis USAMember Posts: 86
    I'm not doubting this is real at this point, but the one thing I see missing is the UCS badging/stamp and maybe it's because this is the beginning of a new packaging for such sets, or this is an exclusive packaging to make a statement.
  • BastaBasta Australia Member Posts: 1,259
    ^ The box does have "ULTIMATE COLLECTOR SERIES" written on it. Some of the official pictures are starting to appear online (unofficially).

    This looks better than expected and still hasn't been officially released, this looks to be an amazingly set

    It looks like it has a small play interior too.
