The latest in the Warner Bros. Pictures LEGO franchise, “The LEGO NINJAGO Movie” stars Dave Franco, Justin Theroux, Fred Armisen, Abbi Jacobson, Olivia Munn, Kumail Nanjiani, Michael Peña, Zach Woods, and the legendary Jackie Chan, as the battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors.

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.

The LEGO Movie Sequel Story Revealed

It’s been a while since we’ve talked about The LEGO Movie Sequel but Collider has some new details on what the story will be. As we know by now, the end of the first movie involves Finn’s sister playing with DUPLO bricks and they announced their plans to destroy them. In an interview with Dan Lin, he stated:

We’re picking up where the first movie left us, where the Duplo have now come and they’re attacking Bricksburg. It’s several years later, and you’re going to see the result of that.

Another part of The LEGO Movie Sequel could tackle on gender differences, more specifically how a boy plays with LEGO is different from how a girl plays with LEGO.

Chris McKay stated:

I’m really excited about where the movie is gonna go because it’s about these things that are actual notions that people have that might even be unconscious biases, where people don’t even realize that that’s the way they’re looking at the world.

Check out the full interview over on Collider in the link above.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) Unboxing Review

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

The new LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) was released earlier today and if you were able to checkout, prepare for something massive. I received my review copy on Monday and have been building it for the past few days. I’m 10.5 hours in and I’m only currently up to bags numbered 7 out of 17 so this will be a daunting task. Since it’s so large, I’m going to try to break up the review into several parts. Here’s a quick unboxing of this beauty of a set.

As you saw from the official images, the box is huge. Forgive my crudeness of the images but my photography studio isn’t big enough to support the box and most likely won’t fit the Falcon after it’s been completed.

The front of the box shows the Falcon in all its glory and the back of the box shows some of the features of the set including the interchangeable sensor dishes.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

On one side of the box, you have a little a little blurb about the Millennium Falcon in various languages. There’s also a couple of stickers with a crossed out knife meaning not to open from this end.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

On the opposite side of the box, you have a very nice looking blueprint as well as a line of the minifigures that are included with the set.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

When you open up the box, you are greeted with a large sprial bound instruction manual that sits on top of a cardboard so it won’t get crushed during transit. A pleasant touch from the packaging designer.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

Underneath the manual is the dreaded sticker sheet with not too many stickers but still disappointing that it relies on stickers even at this high of a price point.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

When you remove the manual and the cardboard, you have four boxes with part of an image of the ship on each of them which forms the whole thing when put together. Again, another great little detail even before starting the build.

LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192)

Each of the four boxes include a famous quote from the original Star Wars movies, three from Han Solo and one from Lando Calrissian.

“She might not look like much but she’s got it where it counts, kid.”
“I’ve made a lot of special modifications myself.”
“It’s the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 Parsecs.”
“She’s the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy.”

Inside the white boxes are the bags of parts needed to build this monstrosity. Again, the bags are numbered from 1 to 17. One weird thing with the bags are that they are randomly put into the four boxes. You would think the the first box would contain the first couple set of bags in sequential order but it’s not. They are grouped together by their respective numbers but some of the groups are out of order in which they come in. If you’re building it, I suggest dumping out all the bags and reorganizing them.

I’ll continue to plug away at the build but stay tuned for various updates throughout. Follow my Instagram to see some behind the scenes stuff during the build.
