Going to get a Millenium Falcon LE (with a couple pics now!)
« on: September 25, 2007, 05:46:21 PM »
Hey all....

Just ordered a Millenium Falcon LE.



This will be not only my 1st LE but also my 1st studio scale.  Got one at a price I just couldn't pass up.

I'll do a review when it gets here.

Anyone else have one? Anyone know where to get a good acrylic cover for it?

A big congrats to you!

That code was a blessing, was it not?  ;D

Did you paid around $400 for it after all the discounts?  Yeah, definitely hard to pass up!

I guess you could only get one, huh?

Its a random code given to the winners of the Forum Fun Month Trivia on the MR site.   So not only do you win a "surprise" prize, but you get a code that could be for $50 off and item $100+, $600 off Star Trek Enterprise SE or $1000 off M. Falcon LE!

plus, they're on sale for $700 off right now. 
masterreplicas.com is selling them for $1499.
.. so with an extra $1000 off, it would only be $499  :o

congrats Hemidal :)

Dude am I lucky.

So here's the full deal...

Normally it is 2199.99$

It is on sale right now for 1499.99$

With my 10% CS membership it brings it down to 1349.10$

I won Star Wars trivia last Friday. This is forum month over at MR and part of the trivia win for those of us who won as a one-time use only per user code (so no one else can use it) that is random. I got $1000 off the falcon. I'm also aware of at least one person who got a 600$ off of the enterprise code. There are also 50$ off codes for spending over 100$. 

The 1000$ is applied POST 10% CS discount too.

And...since there's free shipping on LEs....

That brought my grand total to $349.10

Sweet!

Don't I know it!

Actually it was the first trivia win I'd had in a couple months too. I've been in a bit of a lull lately.

This definitely turned that around!

I know =)

And to think that I had to pass on the Luke V2 LE as I didn't have the money at the time. Now I got a falcon for the same price!

I just hope the one I get doesn't have too many airbrushing issues. I'd hate to have to send it back and wait for a replacement.....

Now I just need to find somewhere in Tennessee to get an acrylic case for it!

Biggs you're one lucky SOB to get a Falcon for THAT price. 

I really envy those of you who have or are getting some studio scales.  I'd love to have the Falcon and the Vader helmet.

Sadly I have 1: Not that kind of money and 2: No room to really display them.

Well, theoretically it's supposed to be here on Monday October 1st.

Hopefully I'll have it that day. Don't know if I will yet though as I have an interview to conduct at work and 2 long meetings on Monday so I might not be able to be home when it is delivered.


UPDATE:
I have some friends at DHL and it arrived 3 days early. They called me to make sure I was home and did a special delivery to me this morning!
It's here!  Millenium Falcon LE #269



I can't keep the falcon "out" until I get a cover since there is a reasonable possibilty that my cat might decide to use it as a chew toy.

Bad kitty no Falcon!

However,  I just took a couple pics to show until I can do a better review later.
