    Panic over! As soon as I started to build bag-4 it became apparent I'd missed a whole bag somewhere. A quick rummage through the cardboard boxes brought up a small bag-4 I'd missed with mostly grey pieces and lo and behold.. Leia's head was there!!

    Where'd you get a real millenium falcon?!?!?  Here I am stuck with my dinky Delorean Time Machine.  Always a day late and a dollar short.

    So is there another thread about the supposed mid Feb 2018 UCS SSD we can speculate in?

    Who is supposing that? Seems like the old one just retired. I would expect a regular Star Destroyer before a Super as that one has been gone for ages and needs a redesign.

    ^ I like the sound of that rumour.. I wonder if that is what @BrickCommander was referring to “ to be replaced by SOMETHING BIG and SOMETHING EVEN MUCH, MUCH BIGGER” when talking about Rogue One sets..

    Heard the same thing about SSD, maybe mid-Feb. for VIPs??

    @Fireheart - I believe Hans was referring to #75190 First Order Star Destroyer when he mentioned 'SOMETHING BIG' while 'SOMETHING EVEN MUCH, MUCH BIGGER' alludes to #75159 Millennium Falcon.

    And I have been hoping for another big set Star Wars release in the very near future... I suppose I should just be happy with the Millennium Falcon.

    Some guy on reddit, apparently the same guy that gets a lot of things right, like the Taj Mahal re-release.

    Same here. No additional details on the offers but glad to know they are being sent out.

    Should we add fuel to the fire that we might get a new ISD seeing as they are pictured?

    Yeah, mine's apparently on the way too (Purchase in DE on launch day)! Edit: Just noticed the mail does say will arrive at the end of this month

    I also noticed more and more retailers in Benelux now have placeholders for #75192:

    Thought about that too. Wonder if that's a hint to a 2018 benefit (early release/access)?

    Same e-mail here too. Intrigued to know what the exclusive offers are going to be.
  • MachONEMachONE USMember Posts: 40
    Got the email and I was thinking it would be nice if they sent the first offer or gift with the card. Say....Episode VII Luke. It's not out of the realm of possibility.

    Curious.. those who did not get the email....were you by chance in store purchase? Maybe the emails are going out to day 1 .com purchases? I was backorder online, but got the email. Got the Falcon early Oct.

    I bought mine in store a few weeks after and I got the email.

    Well then that theory is shot. Who knows why some got it and some didn't then. Guess it's just another random thing then.
  • CrzypenguCrzypengu United StatesMember Posts: 77
    I got mine on September 15th and I have not gotten an email yet. I hope to get one soon.
  • CrzypenguCrzypengu United StatesMember Posts: 77
    Nevermind, I just looked at the wrong email account. I have like 4 different accounts.
  • omniumomnium Brickenham, UKMember Posts: 831
    They could be sending them out in some sort of order, like VIP account number, alphabetical on name, email address, etc.
    Whatever the reason, I don't have an email yet. I bought mine at the launch event, as did @Legoboy who first reported here about the email, and @Mr_Hobbles who like me doesn't have an email.

    What?

    I'd have no issue believing that since it's a pic of a  #10179 Falcon with some of the #75105 minifigs and antenna, some  #7985 minifigs and an R2 thrown in for good measure :D
    Please don't notify Brickshop.nl until I've received my second #75179 and successfully put in a claim with my credid card company for not providing goods as advertized! 

    Been skimming through this thread to see if I could find @CM4S 's pic but no such luck...

    Edit: Obi-Wan's from another set as well. Might be other details I missed. It's definitely not what's in the #75179 box though!
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,416
    The MF listing at Fun.be has now been updated, and shows an availability date of 17 Jan 2018:



    So come 2018 availability of this set will likely be a lot wider than just the small shipments to the LEGO Stores.

    (Spotted first by @Kerre )

    ^ But without the black VIP Star Wars card!

    ^ why?

    Edit: I assume you mean it’s not linked to the Lego VIP.
  • SeanTheCollectorSeanTheCollector BirminghamMember Posts: 765
    ^ No black card with benefits since they are only available if set purchased before the end of 2017. Listing is offering product from 17/Jan/2018 :)
  • JRLJRL UKMember Posts: 86
    Also, reduced already?
  • FireheartFireheart Suffolk, UKMember Posts: 620
    Surely they will change that, and extend the scheme. 

    Or is it a promotion based on the number of units sold? with LEGO not thinking they would have sold that quick..

    @JRL It's a general 15% off Lego at that retailer this week. They generally don't exclude the few exclusives they carry from their promotions.

    Ah I see. Also I think they’ve added €50 to the RRP anyway. Still, bodes well for the future for those of us that don’t have it. Thanks.

    The RRP price is correct, in Belgium is 849€ (not 799€) :(
  • KerreKerre In a bar, under the sea.Member Posts: 411
    ^No, 849,00 € is #75192's RRP in Benelux. 

    Some other Benelux retailers are trying to flog them with a markup, those with a tendency to nick @CM4S 's pictures more specifically. Just a bit higher up on this very same thread page...
  • stluxstlux LuxembourgMember Posts: 2,416
    @JRL EUR 850 is the Benelux RRP. Sets are usually more expensive in the Benelux vs Germany. Hence why I collected my MF from the Saarbrücken Lego Store. (+ them getting stock vs no shipment to the Belgian Lego Store in early November)

    Only sets bought from Lego ([email protected] or Bricks and Mortar stores) are eligible for the special VIP cards.  I have not seen any hard evidence that they are extending it.  Just some rumors here at Brickset forum.
