So according to the site, LEGO severely underestimated the demand for an $800 set, so the set is "Temporarily Out of Stock" and there will NOT be a widespread release on October 1. LEGO says "everyone will have a chance" to buy it, however.

I'm imagining this will be in store at least through the release of the Han Solo movie, and probably beyond the release of Episode 9 if the demand is there.

Forgot to post this email I received about 2 weeks ago:

Hello LEGO® Star Wars™ Fan,
As you may know, the new LEGO® Star Wars™ Millennium Falcon (75192), our largest LEGO set ever, went on sale exclusively to VIP Members on September 14. We are very excited that we received such a positive response from fans like yourself, it exceeded all of our expectations! Unfortunately, that also means the first batch has already sold out.

The good news is we are making more as quickly as possible and expect to have very limited quantities available for the remainder of 2017. We have extended the VIP-only access period, which means the new inventory will remain exclusive to VIPs at least through November.

To make your wait a little easier, you can now sign up to receive back-in-stock notifications. Simply confirm your interest below and we’ll email you when a new batch of the Millennium Falcon (75192) is available on shop.LEGO.com

If you'd rather make your purchase at your favorite LEGO Brand Retail store, please call or visit your local store starting Friday 9/29 and ask a Brick Specialist to add you to the wait list.
