    I'm going to have to give up alot of Transformers to pick up this thing. Right now, it looks like my 2007 purchases will be limited to MP Megs and possibly movie Prime. I have got to find a way to get me one of these things, but it is going to be expensive!

    Wow, that's looks crazy. Always wanted to get into those Star War Lego sets but TF toys always sucked up the funds.

    What's the price tag for that bad boy?

    Links work fine on this end.

    This thing is going to be VERY expensive though $400-500 in all likelihood. For serious LEGO fans only. Still, with over 5000 bricks, this is going to be one hell of an awesome build!

    Looks pretty cool. Now if they'd just rerelease or release a new version of the UCS X-Wing I'd be especially happy.

    I admit that the set looks awfully nice, but I've gotta give it up for the old AMT/Ertl set. For about $20, you can get even more detail than that lego has.

    The lego might have the size factor working for it, though. Still, the old AMT/Ertl Falcon model was like a foot and a half long, from engines to mandibles.

    <Hugs his AMT/Ertl Falcon kit delicately, making sure not to break the gun turrets>

    It never fails to amaze me just how expensive LEGO sets are.

    I belive it will sell for 299.99 and for some reason some places says it wont be available in the states. (UK exclusive?) but I find that hard to believe.
    Amazon.co.uk has a listing for it, but I think they're using the $100 falcon in their pic

    Here's the pics for those getting red x's

    Hawt. I buy damn near all of the minifig scale SW LEGO sets, but have yet to buy any of the UCS, due to space and money factors. But damn, that's tempting. Makes me want to buy that and do what it takes to get the others, either via selling off stuff and/or limiting purchases from other lines (er, like movie TFs).

    It's available here. You can order it online now for $499.99. The shipping is free (for this set only) and it will ship by October 1st.

    5,195 pieces! Looks awesome, I wish I could add this to my Lego Star Wars collection, but it's out of my range. I'll just be happy with the 2 Lego Millennium Falcons I already have. Interesting that it also comes with mini-figs, most UCS sets don't have them.

    Well, considering that the larger UCS sets are $299 US, this should be considerably more expensive. According to LEGO Shop@home, the US price is $499. Still, not that surprising considering it includes 5000+ bricks. This thing definitely tops my must-have list.

    I love TFs, but I love LEGO even more.

    Holy shit. It's actually built to scale with the minifigs?! Now that's awesome.

    I like it but some points look a little messy and disorganized, like they put in pieces to make it looks intricate.

    Especially the rear.

    Ah cool thanks for the info, and clarifying the price

    Wow man, this thing holds the new record for the largest SW lego set.
    I was so proud of my giant Lego Star Destroyer too.
