Wow, it looks great! I might have to take my old Falcon apart and make that Outrider I've always wanted to make. ;)

But why did they give Leia the ANH style hair? I could understand not wanting to make a new hair sculpt, but they could've given her the long hair they gave to Padme, Slave Leia, and Bespin Leia.

Definitely cool looking, though it's still technically a suped up rehash of the prior version, so it isn't terribly thrilling to me.  I'd prefer some more new ships or playsets to be honest...

Cool Hoth Han and Snowtrooper with E-web Cannon though!

But it is good news to those of us that have no desire to chase the Falcon on ebay.  This I presume will run $100 on retail, so a good 1/3 of the ebay price of the old Falcon.  It's a nice looking set.

I'll be picking this one up and putting it right next to the other one i have. Should be cool side by side.

Just a heads up to the Lego fans out there, that this sucker has arrived in stores.  Came across a couple of the brand spankin' new OTC Millenium Falcon Lego sets tonight at Target, for $99.99 each.  Didn't see any other sets though...

Happy hunting!

'Bout freakin' time!  I still haven't bit on that set yet, since I got the first Falcon.  I've been waiting for this "new" one to go on a nice sale, but it's never dropped below $80 that I've ever seen.  So $50's a bit more stomachable.  Thanks for the head's up Jay!  :-*

I almost forgot to pick this set up for that $49.99 price, but fortunately stumbled right into a huge endcap full of them with a giant sale sign at the last Target I hit over Thanksgiving weekend, so I grabbed a nice mint set finally.  I think that finishes off my Lego collection as far as what's been available in the stores.

But I have yet to pick up a single set that's been exclusive to their stupid Lego website, which is pretty much ALL of them over the past couple years.  I've lost track on how far behind I am now, but I know I missed the Cloud City set and all of the recent Collector's Series sets, or whatever those high end sets are (Y-wing, etc.)  Ugh.

Haven't opened my Falcon up yet though.  Maybe someday...  :P
