I recently published a post about the LEGO UCS Millenium Falcon VIP sale debacle. It now appears this will continue to be a debacle as the set will still be sold out on the official release date.
“LEGO VIP Early Access was available for LEGO VIP members on September 14th 2017. It’s proved to be so popular with fans that we’re currently out of stock. 75192 Millennium Falcon goes on sale from October 1st 2017, however due to the overwhelming success of our VIP Early Access, it will remain temporarily sold out. We know our fans are keen to get their hands on this amazing new set and we’re working hard to make it available again as soon as we can. We don’t have an exact date yet, but keep an eye on the product page on our LEGO Shop website for the latest information. If you already have a Millennium Falcon on backorder, we’ll ship it to you as soon as more sets are available.”
I am blown away by the number of people willing to shell out that kind of cash for a toy. And I am embarrassed to say, I desperately want to be one of those people! Oh well. This gives me plenty of time to sell of parts of my collection to pay for this beast.
Are you surprised the UCS Millenium Falcon sold out like it did? Will you be buying one when it is available again?
