LEGO BrickHeadz Boba Fett & Han Solo in Carbonite (41498) NYCC 2017 Exclusive Revealed

LEGO BrickHeadz NYCC 2017 Boba Fett & Han Solo in Carbonite (41498)

LEGO has officially revealed the New York Comic Con 2017 LEGO BrickHeadz exclusive set with Boba Fett & Han Solo in Carbonite (41498). The set has 329 pieces and will be sold for $40 to attendees who were able to get in on the pre-show lottery.

The set is based on Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back after Han was sealed in carbonite in Cloud City. What’s interesting about this NYCC 2017 set is that it is the first Star Wars set for LEGO BrickHeadz. Does this mean that we could see more Star Wars characters for LEGO BrickHeadz in 2018?

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) Availability Update

If you are a LEGO VIP member, you may have received an email from LEGO regarding the availability for the new LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). They have extended the VIP only access period through November which means that you must be a VIP member to be able to purchase the set. This also means that the general public won’t be able to purchase it on October 1 since they announced earlier that it will still be temporarily out of stock then. If you’re not a LEGO VIP member, I’m not sure why not, you can easily sign up online.

LEGO has also suggested that you call or visit your nearest LEGO Brand Store starting tomorrow to get put on the wait list for when shipment arrives at the store. Of course, there’s no way of knowing how many sets they will get per shipment so try to get on that list early for a higher chance to secure one.

As you may know, the new LEGO® Star Wars™ Millennium Falcon (75192), our largest LEGO set ever, went on sale exclusively to VIP Members on September 14. We are very excited that we received such a positive response from fans like yourself, it exceeded all of our expectations! Unfortunately, that also means the first batch has already sold out.

The good news is we are making more as quickly as possible and expect to have very limited quantities available for the remainder of 2017. We have extended the VIP-only access period, which means the new inventory will remain exclusive to VIPs at least through November.

To make your wait a little easier, you can now sign up to receive back-in-stock notifications. Simply confirm your interest below and we’ll email you when a new batch of the Millennium Falcon (75192) is available on shop.LEGO.com

If you’d rather make your purchase at your favorite LEGO Brand Retail store, please call or visit your local store starting Friday 9/29 and ask a Brick Specialist to add you to the wait list.

*Please note, stock will be in very limited supply and each batch will likely sell out quickly. Signing up for notifications does not guarantee availability of the product.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) Release Debacle

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

The day is almost over and the main event today was the release of the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). It was available on [email protected] shortly after 5am PST which was around the time that LEGO stated it would be released. After it was actually available, [email protected] basically couldn’t handle the load and it kept going down. Other issues with it include logging people out, servers going into maintenance, multiple orders placed, etc. After that, the set went into backordered status, and eventually temporarily out of stock. If LEGO didn’t announce an actual time for the release and just put it live at an arbitrary time, I felt that it would have eased the overload on the servers.

For those who were waiting for the general release on October 1 or Double VIP Points from October 10-25, you might be out of luck as well. Over on LEGO’s customer service page, there’s a a topic for the Millennium Falcon and there’s an interesting blurb which says,

75192 Millennium Falcon™ goes on sale from October 1st 2017, however due to the overwhelming success of our VIP Early Access, it will remain temporarily sold out.

This means that LEGO will not have stock for the general release which is actually surprising since there was plenty of hype for it way before today and they obviously knew that there was a huge demand for it but probably underestimated how much demand it really had.

LEGO also stated that they’re continuing to make more but does not have an exact date of when it will be available again. We will have another repeat of the LEGO Ideas NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309) which has been out of stock on [email protected] since after its release in June. Customers who got their orders but were on the backorder list, who knows when they will get their order.

As I stated last week, the UCS Millennium Falcon was extremely limited even at LEGO Brand Stores. I’ve been reading comments and some stores only had a handful of sets that were available for sale so if you didn’t wait in line hours before the store opened, you were out of luck.

If you weren’t able to get one today, there’s more than enough incentive to enter the LEGO Rebrick Freighter Wars contest which LEGO has four sets up for grabs. Head to the link above to see the rules. You’ll have until October 11 to enter your submission.

Were you able to get the new LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) either from [email protected] or at the LEGO Store or were you one of the fans who was disappointed in the whole debacle? Let us know about your experience in the comments below.
