astrogalaxy said...

The Rebel said...

Goodness! I love that this one is in scale!! i wish the same cld be said about HASBRO's Mill Falcon....LOL!

Great acquisition bro!

astrogalaxy said...

Thank you Rebel!
This is built to LEGO minifigure scale which makes it looks so nice on display...

The Hasbro's BMF is very nice too and it's my top favourite from Hasbro at the moment!
Maybe Hasbro will release a Millennium Falcon to scale...
After all they kept making small ones, medium ones, large ones...etc
Soon will run out of ideas and have a scaled one!LOL!!
But I hope it's not too big or expensive!

Hi filipe,
Thanks!
Most of my childhood memories are playing LEGO with my cousins... Now, LEGO has become my top favourite! heehee...

supekudx said...

Hi Bro

After reading this article I have decided to buy one for me and I did. I took 2 weeks to finish but for my disapointment it was missing some pieces.
I have sent an e-mail to Lego to have the replacements. As a new Lego fan I don't have spare parts.
This Millennium Falcon is amazing and a must-have for every fan of Star Wars and Lego.

astrogalaxy said...

Hi supekudx,
oh dear...I hope you'll be able to find and get your missing pieces soon.
Glad to know you like this 10179 too!
Cheers!

This set blows my adult mind. It is in
my opinion hands down the most awesome lego set ever. Well worth the price I paid on eBay. Does anyone know what they cost when Lego sold them new?

astrogalaxy said...

Yes and the retail price at lego was US$499.99. Congrats on your purchase!

EdMund said...

Hi Astrogalaxy,

My friend is also looking for this set. Do you happen to know where in Singapore it is available and what is the price like?

Thank you.

astrogalaxy said...

Hi EdMund,
I don't recall seeing this 10179 in the last few months. Maybe you can call Simply Toys, Brick Station, Secret Chamber or Toy Hunt to check if they have it. As for price wise, according to Bricklink, it's approx. average price is S$1,700 w/o the shipping cost.
BTW, there's also new MF released here in Singapore this month that's worth checking out is the 7965 at S$329.90. ^-^

EdMund said...

Hi Astrogalaxy,

Thank you for the information. Will check it out with the stores.

Cheers!!
