- Lego WANT of the Day
I saw the last big Falcon when it first came out at a Lego store in Cologne. I missed out on that one.
I saw the new one yesterday and am very sorely tempted. I even just about have the requisite purchase order signed off by Mrs Danny.
It really is a lovely thing.Posted 6 months agoJef WachowchowMember
The kids(or their dad) over the road must have the £100 falcon, the box was in their recycling pile yesterday, my kids were straight over to it asking if they could take the box home, I fell so tight!
I feel your guilt Kimbers. My boy is Lego mad (as am I) and while I could just afford, though not justify, buying £100 StarWars Lego sets, there is something stopping me. If he wants it that bad it will be on Mr Christmas’s list. The UCS one is just potty. For that money I could get a jump bike and spend more time at the skate park with him which seems a far better investment.Posted 5 months agofrankconwaySubscriber
Lego and Star Wars combined; how to make an old man happy.
Number 1 son, now 31, has Death Star and the UCS TIE fighter – not bought by me; I’m contemplating whether I should get him the UCS Millennium Falcon.
It’s not a question of affording it; it’s more about justifying it but, having said that, STW is full of people justifying all sorts of extravagant purchases for themselves so – I think I’ve just confirmed to myself that I can justify it!
EDIT – he also has original version of Millennium FalconPosted 5 months ago

You lot know about Lepin right?

I don’t know – not bought any – just saw it last weekend so thought i’d pop it on here.
Saving 500 quid seems like a plan to me!!
The ‘falcon’ has 2500, 30%, fewer pieces than the genuine one.
Based on my experience with not lego Lego, the instructions will be difficult to follow, and it won’t have all the bits it says it does. (Bought for me, not by me, I might add…)Posted 3 months agothetallpaulSubscriber
There is the larger version on the aliexpress site: Falcon 8445 pieces Just under £180.
I must admit to buying a Wall-E off there and the quality was very good. The instructions where about half size compared to Lego’s, but looked near identical otherwise.
I did come across a few comments that the Lepin items are actually produced by Lego in China, but who knows?Posted 3 months ago
which was a surprise considering how solidly the Saturn 5 locks together.
I was showing off my Saturn V to a mate a few weeks back. I picked it up and said “it’s surprisingly robust…” and at that exact moment the third stage popped off the rest of the model, hit the coffee table and burst into a hundred pieces.Posted 3 months ago
