Sold out ATM. They released 100 sets in store with a signed VIP card in London on the 14th at midnight, and released it for sale online @730am on the 15th, which sold out in 20 minutes! Official in store release date is October 1st.
Will keep a look out then.Not 100% confirmed, but apparently the 1st October release date has been put back due to demand! Maybe they are making more?
This was my sorting of the Lepin version of the Millenium Falcon from last year, took a good couple of hours as none of the packs were packed in build order just by part typeDay1 after around 90 minutes. I spent 15-20 sorting the little packs in the order of build! Lol
Any reason why you still want a genuine kit?
They still sell Lego at lower prices, albeit, still more expensive than it's competitors. The Larger kits are more unique, and only made in limited numbers, hence the higher price tag and if they are sold out, they tend to hold/go up in value.The last time I made a lego model they were a few pounds not hundred or thousands, what happened . Ah yes I know , I got old...lol
‘Cos it’s new, and the biggest Lego set available
Long answer ..........
Winter hobby - Over the last 7 or 8 years or so I have built about 40 of the 50 largest Lego models across the Lego Range (Technic, Star Wars, buildings etc etc) so when a new big model comes out it goes on the list.
Lepin is not Lego - even if part and build quality is as good I only build the Lepin models of Lego sets that are not available due to cost or availability - I have a Lepin Taj Mahal to start next ( lego versions are north of £1000!!!) and when lego release there new version that will also go on my to be built list.
Once models are built I only keep on display for a couple if weeks, takes some photos if I remember and then sell on, usually via eBay to fund the next
some very impressive lego builds so far , wish they had been around when I was messing around with lego.
I was more or a Meccano builder and airfix model builder......
I’ve got 2xUnopened Millennium Falcons, one is already sold.Is it?
Ps. The bags are numbered in this kit.I’ve got 2xUnopened Millennium Falcons, one is already sold.
I was originally going to buy another kit just to build, but then came across the Lepin kit for £167 posted! So just for the building experience, it’s a bargain! Hence why I asked you earlier why you are after a genuine kit, when you know Lepin sells one at 1/4 of the price?
I’m keeping my original one as an investment.
I’ve been told that some more will be available on the 27th, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.I am going to hold out for a genuine kit or two (keep one and one as an investment) for a while longer. The local Lego store is only 30 mns away and they get there deliveries Friday morning and I regularly phone up on the morning to see if they have got any in,
Good to know the Lepin kits are now in numbered bags, its a real pain sorting out the large sets and hunting for those odd pieces
