    Only reason I skipped out on TFA Falcon was I'd be waiting on something like this. I want ALL eras. Give me those extra figs!

    Also, I hate to go off topic, and everyone has their own opinions, but I need to ask one question. Is Jar Jar stepping in Bantha poop and going "icky!" really more intelligent filmaking than following the plot points of what came before it? Fistful of Dollars is a rip-off of 'Yojimbo' but it's still a great western.

    The video says October 1st, but I just got a flyer in the mail telling us to visit the site or go to the store on September 1st to see the biggest set ever. I hope this doesn't mean it's going on sale on 9/1, because most of us will be at other stores shopping at midnight. Hopefully 9/1 is the announcement (as previously stated) and 10/1 is the onsale date.

    October 1st is the set release date, although history has shown that VIP's will get a chance to buy as early as 15 September. 1 September is the official unveiling of the set.

    That's what I figured. The wording on the flyer was misleading. My guess is, they'll have a finished model of it at the stores. I'm a VIP member, so as long as it's not midnight Force Friday, I should have a chance to order one before it sells out, I'd think.

    ....of course, if the price is more than $500 as has been rumored, I simply won't be able to afford it. And I'd go so far as to say most people who have also been waiting for this will be in the same boat for the same reason, should that be the case.

    Rumors have it being as high as $800 USD. It definitely won't come cheap!

    Still, a lot cheaper than buying 10179. And I'm guessing the model will be superior to 10179 as well.

    after the initial hype cools down I am sure this set will come down to as low as $500.. same thing had happened with 10179.. I remember people buying it as low as $350

    I do feel that there will be discounts on this set after its initial release. 20% and maybe even as much as 30% if you're patient. This set will be around a long time. With Star Wars Land opening in Disneyland in 2019 and the upcoming Han Solo movie, I think this thing will be in production for a while.

    It seems at one point or another every set gets a discount. I will be holding out hope the Falcon will as well and unload some VIP Points at the same time.
