Love the Falcon - I do notice the Lotus-esque tray of spare left over bits ?

It's a 1500 light year interval.

Drinkies galore.  Not sure I'll remember the movie.

Short of waiters for the event, were they?

Actually, with, a bit more hair and a beard, he could be Mark Hamill’s double.

That's a great model! I was admiring it in Germany last week. But then I remembered I bought running cars for less...

Do let us know how you liked The Last Jedi! We're going to the Belgian premiere tomorrow. :)

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Hi Filip!  I bought 3 Falcons; 2 are safely in storage.  I really enjoyed the movie - stunning effects, as usual, and plenty of humour too.  My only issue with recent movies is with the 'bad' guys.  Kylo Ren just comes across as a petulant child rather than anything ominous.  They've never been able to match Vader.  All in all though, excellent entertainment!

Disappointed. I thought this thread was about someone who had just sold their Lotus Carlton: as EVO state in their The Knowledge section: "the Millennium Falcon of saloon cars".

Nevertheless, I'm still looking forward to seeing the film.

The film is getting great reviews. Looking forward to seeing it with the great unwashed as sadly I'm not a queen like @Sparky

Queen is right.  I had to plumb new depths to secure this particular invite.

Ah, I know the one.  That's the last UCS edition. 15 years ago I was avoiding buying those at $120 each.

Did you clock your build?

 

Mine was 23 hours even (not in a row!), however I was in no hurry and I did have a 4-year old helper for some of it that may have slowed things down.

 

My Falcon VIP card turned up in the post last week - I'll be in Legoland Florida next week, I wonder if I can flash that around much like a rapper might a Centurion card in a club :D

Mine was around 30 hours, but I spent ages marvelling at things along the way!  Dismantling and packing was around 18 hours; purgatory.

Yes, my VIP card recently arrived.  :D  Having bought 3, I have enough points for a very nice little bonus, so will be flashing my card in the local Lego shop in January...

Enjoy FL!

No dismantling for me, it has a place of pride in the corner of my office.

My daughter thought it would be better in her playroom on the Lego table, but little does she know this has been hiding in a cupboard for the last year, ready for her next birthday - https://shop.lego.com/en-GB/The-Disney-Castle-71040

I've seen it in the flesh; it's very cute!  She'll love it.

Prior to dismantling I did a photoshoot for posterity...
