That’s the number of Lego bricks in the newly updated Ultimate Collectors Series Millennium Falcon set that Lego announced today.

This costs twice as much as my car holy shit
[QUOTE=Liem;52635479]This costs twice as much as my car holy shit[/QUOTE] sorry about your car.
That set looks impressive. Now if only I had $800 to spare :v:
[QUOTE=Liem;52635479]This costs twice as much as my car holy shit[/QUOTE] What the fuck do you drive, a go-kart?
[QUOTE=Liem;52635479]This costs twice as much as my car holy shit[/QUOTE] is your car made of legos?
[QUOTE=milktree;52635488]is your car made of legos?[/QUOTE] wonder if itd hurt to step on the gas
[QUOTE=Liem;52635479]This costs twice as much as my car holy shit[/QUOTE] I don't know what your car is or how you got it but I'm just a bit worried that your car has roughly the same cost as a Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8. :s:
This is basically a re-fleshed out UCS Falcon that was released in 2007 with 2,000 more pieces and a couple more minifigures. There's a few things behind the scenes I'm annoyed with, but the minifigures that come with it are the most annoying thing about it. Han, Leia, Chewie, C-3PO, and then Old Han, Finn, Rey, and BB-8. It also comes with pieces to make 2 of the new Force penguins "porgs" and the asteroid cave monster thing from Empire Strikes Back. No R2, no Luke, no Obi-Wan. But hey, at least they provide pieces so you can change the radar dish style!
[QUOTE=Liem;52635479]This costs twice as much as my car holy shit[/QUOTE] Costs 8 times as much as mine :v:
[QUOTE=Liem;52635479]This costs twice as much as my car holy shit[/QUOTE] yo bro can I buy your $400 car, I'd like a shitty backup one pls
[QUOTE=Karmah;52635517]yo bro can I buy your $400 car, I'd like a shitty backup one pls[/QUOTE] but that's only halfway to getting a millenium falcon
The real joy of becoming an adult is being able to buy and build huge Lego sets. You never outgrow Lego.
[QUOTE=Liem;52635479]This costs twice as much as my car holy shit[/QUOTE] Are you driving a fucking Gremlin dude?
[QUOTE=DinoJesus;52635532]The real joy of becoming an adult is being able to buy and build huge Lego sets. You never outgrow Lego.[/QUOTE] I'm going to buy two. One to assemble and one to leave sealed, due to guaranteed collectibility.
[QUOTE=DinoJesus;52635532]The real joy of becoming an adult is being able to buy and build huge Lego sets. You never outgrow Lego.[/QUOTE] The problem with becoming is adult is you can't actually afford to spend the money on huge Lego sets now. It's much easier to justify buying them when you don't have to pay for rent or food.
[QUOTE=DinoJesus;52635532]The real joy of becoming an adult is being able to buy and build huge Lego sets. You never outgrow Lego.[/QUOTE] The real joy of becoming an adult is finding out that a few of the bigger sets you had as a kid were limited edition and had since skyrocketed in value. I made like 500 bucks net profit selling an old lego set on ebay. If I had kept the box and instructions, and hadn't lost two pieces, it would've been another few hundred bucks on top of that. If I had kept it mint in the box and never opened it, I could've sold it for [I]3000-3500 bucks[/I]. Lego collectors are fucking serious, man.

[QUOTE=Furnost;52635495]wonder if itd hurt to step on the gas[/QUOTE] [I] yes[/I]
I'd still take the Saturn V over this
Day one order. Not joking at all. Oh and you forgot how they're gonna be carried out of the store: [url]https://www.facebook.com/LEGO/photos/a.10150175674793403.303596.6665038402/10154981925638403/?type=3&theater[/url] [IMG]https://scontent.fagc1-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t31.0-8/20819243_10154981925638403_8657455021723077716_o.jpg?oh=0a369e5c53d2fa0a4c5c3ff4545fbcd9&oe=5A24CF73[/IMG] A freaking cardboard dolly. They aren't joking either.

Dropping 200 bucks once or twice a year on something you fancy doesn't seem that wasteful
[QUOTE=DinoJesus;52635651]Maybe you're just overly stingy? Dropping 200 bucks once or twice a year on something you fancy doesn't seem that wasteful[/QUOTE] I'd be more worried about finding time to build it.
[QUOTE=Liem;52635479]This costs twice as much as my car holy shit[/QUOTE] If it runs it's worth $500 minimum. Period.
fuck the money part, the worst part is where the heck am I going to put this thing once I've built it?

I'd go for the coffee table personally. This is a legitimate issue though. I don't have room since I have the UCS Slave 1, Saturn 5, Shuttle Expedition, and Disney Castle all eating up space in my room. The wall mounted version might become a thing in my house.

As cool as it looks I'd still rather get four modular city sets for that price and make a street. [video]https://youtu.be/r_VroKcBFqE[/video] I only own this one but it's probably my favorite set.
[QUOTE=Code3Response;52635663]If it runs it's worth $500 minimum. Period.[/QUOTE] My family's early 00's no-frills Camry got [I]totaled[/I] and they managed to sell the mangled wreck for like 600 bucks to someone who wanted it for scrap. I can't imagine what Liem's 400 dollar jalopy must be like
This thing better light up, play Star Wars music, and give me a foot massage for $800 worth of plastic. Jesus, I knew Lego was expensive, but that's so absurd to me. Buy a new computer or something. [editline]31st August 2017[/editline] Okay, it is pretty extreme. I couldn't put that together even with instructions. It must have taken a lot of time to design.
