    That's partially a reason why a new version was released in 2017 - to fight against the overblown prices on the second-hand market.

    Exactly... you could go to Lego and buy all the individual parts for less and just download the build instructions :D


    p.s. Where is @FN-3263827 before we completely derail her build thread and she invokes Mod powers to delete this post?

    aaaaaaand this is why there's an option in the poll for "it's so gauche" ~ hahahahahaha

    ~ * ~ * ~ *~ *~ * ~

    nevertheless, last night i built the landing gear (which was step two).
    this was rough going because it was six identical legs, all fashioned of the teeniest tiniest Lego bits you can imagine.

    so i made the Rebels do it. XD

    Made them do it?

    Are you sure they didn't just take over after the First Order showed it's incompetence?​

    That’s why they also rereleased the Taj Mahal and made the Lester poly bag more available, to start toppling over resellers/scalpers.

    Great progress @FN-3263827!

    You should relax and make the inhabitants of the falcon box build it. Let the Porgs do it.

    Hux in a pool of parts. This is exactly how I imagine how the construction of Starkiller Base went down.

    i'm really curious as to what's holding up production on this one as the scalpers are running the show for the most part. i really would have thought by now we'd have seen a second wave.

    hahahaha ~ i have not seen fluff nor feather of a porg (or any of the other inhabitants) yet. you can be certain i will share them when i do! : D

    eeeeeeeeeek! : o O

    i have no doubt there were dead workers entombed in the crevices of SKB ~ hahahaha

    on that grim thought:

    ~ * ~ * ~ * ~ *~ * ~ * ~

    i put the landing gear on last night. didn't have much time to play otherwise.
    the good news is that i found where all those suspicious extra parts from step 1 went (whoohoo!).

    tonight i will try to sort out step 3. work is really interfering with my playtime. XD

    p.s. there's the abandoned city of Ninjago there in the background. i think there's just one little old dude in a canoe left to watch over things. XD

    that's coming on so quickly.. looks awesome!

    ignore my messages about withdrawal lol, 7,500 bits of lego..... take your time and enjoy the build. slow and steady wins the race with a set that big.

    you might want to keep Ren away, as you don't really need him crying all over the place.."that's where me and pops had a cuddle!" "that's the seat i sat in when pops first took me out in the falcon!"

    Perhaps their over-production issues are a factor in contributing to the production hold ups?

    the solution is clear.. they need to roll out a few thousand of these special edition MF sets. that gets rid of the surplus, AND drives down the price of the set that we all now clearly want.

    if they don't.. then i will be banking on @FN-3263827 selling me her completed MF for $25 (i will go to $30 at a push FN but i would need free postage to the UK if i go that high :D)

    there's actually a droid down below him, beeping wildly: "don't fall!"
    but it's okay. he's got very good balance.

    er...i'll send a squad.
