Save For The Next Generation House Deposit In Millennium Falcons.

Recommended Posts

With this new Star Wars film, and another chance to buy a mint Millennium Falcon, we could bring them back out in 20-30 years time, and et viola! A house deposit!

1979 Millennium Falcons are selling for about £200 to £400 on ebay, and they are not in mint condition. The original 1979 price was $29.99 according to http://www.starwars.com/news/the-vintage-vault-revisiting-kenners-millennium-falcon

There's a Lego Millennium Falcon (the 'UCS' version) that started out at £200 that now sells for £2000+ on eBay and Lego collector sites. Same for a version of the Death Star too.

Isn't that a Darwin Award qualifier?

Surely when closed the gun barrels are pointing back into the spaceship, or does it fly along in that configuration ?

I suppose hanging upside down doesn't matter in Zero G.

Did anybody see that documentary about Lego that was on C4 a few months back? It was strangely unsettling.

Yes, I saw it. Unsettling as in it was a bit like they were working for a cult?

Yes a cult, exactly. Although it might be a great company to work for I suppose, getting paid to mess around with Lego all day. They were all just a bit shiny eyed and evangelical. As for those high rent city innovation hub things, that looked like pure hubris, even if they are making money hand over fist.

The adult collectors were tragic, especially since they were lampooned by the company themselves in The Lego Movie.

Damn, I nearly bought that one when it was new, it came out just after I'd stopped my "get lots of Star Wars Lego" phase.
