If you actually come into possession of this piece, beware of bounty hunters. I am so jealous I could spit.

Congrats on getting/ordering the Falcon dr_evazan22!

Its gonna be a beauty. Make sure to post pictures when you get it!

I'd order one myself but there's so much already on my plate and Celebration 4 now seven months away doesnt help.

I'd say thanks, but its still premature. I was hoping it wouldn't ship until AFTER the holidays (which, technically, it still could). Right now I'm still keeping in mind rule #1: Believe it when you see it. I'm also considering all the other SW items I have on order, and am REALLY hoping that the Fett blaster holds off a little longer now. Might have to cancel some SS items.

We'll see.

Well, I am giddy as all Hell right now!

Came home and did a standard check of my bank accounts. Lo and behold! There is a hold on my acct for the Falcon! I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!!!!!!!!!! Have yet to receive email confirmation and tracking info, but that's okay.

I ended up borrowing money from my mom (to pay for MF plus rent), and just deposited it 2 days ago, but I'll be able to repay her before '06 runs out.

Just to throw it out there, I'd like to see (and aquire) a Studio Scale Star Destroyer and Tantive IV. The SD more tho. 2 or 3 years between each tho.

Got it today!!!!!!!!!!

Had it sent to my work addy (UPS - MR would only ship DHL). It came on its on skid / pallet. Definitely not 93lbs. The box is huge! Haven't opened it yet... wanted to pass on my good news. Have to move a couple things around first. I'll take some pics and post them (probably on the weekend).

I'm SO happy right now.

OK....

First, I was getting ready to open the MF, looking over the sides of the box. I see it said carton 1.

time passes...

Get it set up, looking for where to plug in the AC adapter - not exactly where the diagram shows, but we figured it out and got it lit. YAYYYYYY!!!!!

Looking over it I see there is one little - SMALL- piece that is/was damaged. Will take a pic.

Then I open up the plaques. I got #1 of 1500. It doesn't mean too much in the grand scheme, but I think its really cool to get #1.

Most impressive on the count Dr. E!!

Can't wait to see pictures of it in a real fans hands (I refused to look at Wises).







Actually, for some reason, lower numbers mean more money in the aftermarket. I would highly doubt you'd sell it but having a #1 is definitely rare. I mean, come one. There's only 1 #1 MR Falcon out there!!!!
