For my birthday my wife bought me a third of the UCS Falcon along with a nice list of what I need to complete it! It took me a bit but the ship is done and clearly my favorite set bar none. We spent total 900-1000 dollars. Part of that was because the pieces have gone up and also I bought some of the pieces in haste because of the rising prices. For anyone that wants to do it I recommend that first thing you do is go to Lego's missing bricks page on Lego.com. Some of the pieces can be a little expensive but I was able to acquire some hard to find pieces for a cheaper price so it evened out. My wife and I must have done a poor job documenting because I have ended up with a decent amount of pieces. Oh well you can never have enough Lego pieces. I just want to say that this sight was a big inspiration. Thank you FBTB.net!
