This won't suit everybody, but if you have a Legoland annual pass, you can get 10% off the Millenium Falcon. The 10% discount also now applies to all "Hard to find sets" (it never used to apply).2907335.jpg

I’d want a real one for that money with Hans Solo thrown in as my driver


Is Hans Solo a knockoff German impersonator of Han Solo?

This should get hot and a good debate going . I'll pop the kettle on
You have to be insane in the membrane to buy £600 of lego

Not if it isn't in stock - which is your usual argument!

Sensible pricing initially would help the most.

This set is currently selling for around £600 second hand even now, and it's price will only rise...
quite a lot of chavs on this post

LoL why are you making that judgement. Because people think it’s expensive doesn’t mean they’re a chav. I’ve not voted as not my thing and if it’s cheaper then anywhere else great.
So what are you then a bigot??
It'll be available everywhere and more heavily discounted soon. LEGO typically overproduce and will soon struggle to sell these at that ridiculous price once the hype has worn of. Even £342.49 for the original 10179 was too much. Don't kid yourselves, this will NOT appreciate much in value and scamming buyers are rife on Amazon and eBay. I'm buying mine for £324.99 in a 50% off sale as it's not worth more than that. Just look at the unfinished rear end, what a butt ugly eyesore

I agree and most won't make a profit!
Would probably be a good long term investment but really don't fancy paying £600 approx for anything that I would have to flog online,but a good deal if you are a builder like me, so heat from me, thanks op.

It's surprising how daft your conclusions are given that you seem to know at least a little about the subject. Don't you know that 10179 now sells 2nd hand for easily £1500 (or did before the new version showed up)?

As for how they "typically overproduce", that's complete nonsense and I challenge you to produce a shred of evidence to back it up. This set came out last year and you still can't easily order them - still out of stock on Lego.com. They can't make enough of them to meet demand, nevermind make too much. And if they regularly over estimated demand, that would mean they're fairly bad at business, which I don't think anyone would say when looking at how well they're doing. Good luck waiting for that 50% discount. Just don't hold your breath.

And for everyone saying this is very expensive and being shocked that anyone would spend £600 on Lego... You seem to be missing the point that this is _a lot_ of Lego. At RRP, this set works out at 8.6p per piece, which is considerably better than many of the smaller sets which can be 12p+ per piece. If you have kids who are into Lego you'll likely end up spending more than £600 on all the Lego you get them over the years.

You get 10% off just for being a VIP member. Show them your card or logged in page on your phone. No need to get a pass for the discovery centre. Bagged one today doing this.
If you have Merlin Annual Pass Standard, you will get 20% discount.

Not true, it is 10% only. Always has been, except for 1 day per year when they have a 20% promotion.

You must have struck lucky then with a new member of staff that didn't know what they were doing. Legoland and Discovery Centres do not accept Lego VIP cards as the theme parks are owned by Merlin Entertaimments, not the Lego group. VIP cards are only valid in Lego stores (and online) and will only get you 5% in membership points (unless there is a doible points weekend which there isn't at the moment). Would you care to upload your receipt for us all to see?

google.co.uk/amp…mp/

Article was published 5 days ago and states this...

"The report comes on the heels of some big management changes, a decision to cut 1.4k employees (8% of their global workforce) back in September, and an overproduction issue that forced LEGO to sell off its bricks at a steep discountto make room in their warehouses".

One of the key issues affecting Lego is the rise in knock off sets and that's affected the values of the older hard to find sets. Unless you are a die hard collector, its hard to stomach a £1500 Millennium Falcon price tag when the Lepin set can be had for £170 delivered. Sure it may only be 99% accurate, but think of all the things you can do with the £1330 saved. The model will look identical on a shelf too!

I'm sorry but I think you are wrong
This set is deliberately produced in lower quantities to keep the fans talking about
Someone from US with access to the waiting list on some Lego stores for this set wasn't impressed by the numbers he saw there and this was last year
Is pure marketing this ,,out of stock,,

Fair enough, but even if that's true, you saying "this set is deliberately produced in lower quantities" is a complete contradiction of TabbyBoy saying "LEGO typically overproduce"... so my point stands.
