Special Discount On 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon

Postby Staff » Sat May 02, 2009 9:08 pm

I got another email with some more May 4th goodies. Right now, you can order 10179 Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falconicon at a discount of 25% off, $374.99.

The email also states:


Plus, on May 3rd and 4th only, be entered in a chance to win a first-edition Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon


But there's no other information as to how. This may be a LEGO retail brand store effort. The first-edition UCS Falcon came with a special first-run certificate that was only available during the first production run of the set.

Update: I got yet another email with more details:


Place an order through LEGOshop.com on May 3rd or May 4th and you will receive an exclusive LEGO® Star Wars™ poster, each individually numbered up to 15,000, celebrating the LEGO Star Wars 10th Anniversary and featuring over 160 minifigures that have appeared in a LEGO Star Wars set in the last 10 years. You will also automatically be entered to win a first-edition LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon™ - number 5, 6 or 7.*!

I know offering a discount on the Falcon totally makes sense, but I was kind of hoping the Dropship would have gone on sale.

still 25% off is nothing to sneeze at.

What do they mean when they say "5, 6, or 7"? I is confuzed. :S

the first edition falcons came with a numbered certificate. the last time they did a numbered run on anything, they pulled #'s 1-10. I"m guessing they did the same with the falcon and are offering numbers 5-7 as prizes.

This really sucks for the offer. No wonder those LEGO reps offer a 25% discount after they realize the error. It was gonna go on sale anyways so nothing too special for us Canadian folks.

I thought they were still including the "Limited Edition" certificates to this very day! It seems like I remember reading somewhere that people were finding them numbered in the 10,000's. That is hardly what I'd qualify as limited. Getting one of the #'s 5-7 would definitely be cool though.

My order has been placed. Did anyone else notice on the email that it states the posters are individually numbered? Hopefully I get #23, 94, 421, 1138, 1977, 1980, 1983, or 10179.

Maybe the topic / subject line needs a [US/CAN] prefix?

Done! Just bought clone walker. Poster will be on its way. By the way it is ALL purchases from lego not just star wars. The offer is good with pirate impulse sets and everything else.

I finally built my Grievous... a lot of people complained about stability, but for a shelf model it's really quite good, I'm really impressed and happy with the finished model. Didn't get it for as cheap as you, though, I got it when it first went on sale for $45, I think it was. Now it's $30? Great deal.

Edit: I suppose I'll keep this on topic; I ordered a lot of non-Star Wars stuff, but I also got a couple of the magnet sets just for some guys it seems like I'll never get otherwise.

Had my mom order another five sets of the Clone Walker Battle pack, since it's limit 5; now seemed like a good time for an extra poster (and extra chance to win, I guess), even though I'm not particularly enamored with the poster.

I thought you bought one already last year during the amazon or target sale and with the additional live.com discount?

I think the May 3-4 Anniversary sale pushed the Grievous set to finally be SOLD OUT on legoshop.com. If anyone bought it orignally at 89.99, they'd be kicking themselves. I just bought $29.99 sale to get my poster and will be sure Grievous will retain its value after being discontinued two years from now.

Well, that sale was the very thing that brought me to FBTB. I was trying to get the details of that deal, but I couldn't register on the forums.

Thanks for the offer for the couch, but I got to sleep in my own bed last night. She took it better than I thought... after I picked all that spaghetti food out of my hair.

With very few exceptions, I never pay full price for sets that expensive.... 50% off seemed like a great deal until it became 66% off! ;)

What do you mean discontinued two years from now? You think they will actually make more?

Oh come now. You're saying you've never had a "I-gotta-have-it" episode? Even when it's the last on the shelf? XD
