Escape the Space Slug

©2016 LEGO Group

LEGO kindly provided us with three copies of the highly exclusive 6176782 Escape the Space Slug to be given away to Brickset readers over the Force Friday II weekend. We received 1583 entries in total, 1248 of which gave the following correct answers to our three questions:

  • What speed does Han Solo claim that the Millennium Falcon can achieve when speaking with Luke in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope? Point five past lightspeed or a speed sufficient to make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.
  • Name any three of the five characters who are shown piloting the Millennium Falcon during the Original Trilogy. (Any three of) Han Solo, Chewbacca, Leia Organa, Lando Calrissian, Nien Nunb.
  • From whom does Rey steal the Millennium Falcon when fleeing Jakku in Star Wars: The Force Awakens? Unkar Plutt.

We have selected three winners at random from among those who answered our questions correctly. Find out if you are among them after the break...

  • paulbarnett
  • jamie75
  • merman

Congratulations to the winners! We will contact you shortly via email.

We are hoping to run more giveaways like this in future so keep an eye on the homepage!

well done to the winners. Leia was the tricky one she only pilots it very briefly.

I congratulate the winners and hope they'll keep their set and enjoy the build!

Though I didn't win it's nice to know at least I submitted all correct answers :-)

And now, off to Bricklink my own copy of the set... already got the file with the digital instructions! :D

Oh well, it was fun just entering!

Parsec isn't a speed but a distance measurement.

By in United Kingdom,

Thank you Brickset! You are AWESOME!

@darthmar - I realise that but the nature of the Kessel Run is such that speed and manoeuvrability, as well as the skill of a pilot, can be measured by the distance travelled. Han's comment therefore boasts not only his own skill in making the Kessel Run in a distance of less than twelve parsecs but also the speed of the Millennium Falcon.

Nien Numb just co-piloted didn't he? Anyway, congrats to the winners!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Isn't Nien Nunb?? ;)

Anyways congrats to the winners!!!!

I didn't win? Oh well, congrats to you three lucky winners. ;>)

I knew I'd get the answers correct but I never win anything so bought the set off an eBay seller last week. Congratulations to the three winners!

What speed does Han Solo claim that the Millennium Falcon can achieve when speaking with Luke in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope? Point five past lightspeed or a speed sufficient to make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs.

Answering the question with 'Something fast enough to carry out the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs' seems a little vague to me.

"For the Jackpot prize of $1m, who won the 100m gold medal in the 1952 Olympics?"

"Not me".

Point five past light speed is the only answer.

Well done to the winners regardless. :)

I actually found two instances Leia piloted the Falcon in the films. The first is during the dogfight scene in A New Hope when Han and Luke man the turrets. The second is while Han and Chewie are repairing the hyperdrive in Empire Strikes Back shortly before entering the asteroid belt.

Leia was definitely the tricky one. She spends a lot of time in the pilot's seat, yet seldom actually pilots. Congratulations to the winners!

@caprex101: They made that up in the expanded universe, long after the mistake was pointed out. Technically, since its through an asteroid field, if your in a tough enough ship with big enough guns you could blast through a heck of a lot faster then 12 parsecs.

Han made it by traveling through the nearby black hole cluster as apparently 'traveling closer to a black hole distorts time and space making the distance shorter'. This is total rubbish. Actual world physics show flying to a black hole slows time and you need far more power to combat the gravitational waves

Basically doing it this way would actually increase the time and distance travelled, not lessen it.

Although I didn't win, I thoroughly enjoyed the contest. I got all three questions right, even providing all five pilots. It was a fun excuse to re-watch parts of the OT.

By in United Kingdom,

@xboxtravis7992 - Leia pilots the Millennium Falcon as it approaches the asteroid field, as you mention, but also during the escape from Cloud City towards the end of Episode V. She is in the cockpit while the TIE Fighters are attacking in Episode IV but I suspect she was simply watching the battle at that time rather than actually flying the ship.

@GrizBe - Any attempt to equate Star Wars with real-world physics is futile as the saga makes no effort to adhere to such rules. Furthermore, the current canon confirms that the distance travelled during the Kessel Run is a measure of the skill of a pilot and the speed of a vessel but little detail has been provided concerning why this is the case. I think we can safely assume that this will be expanded upon in the Han Solo movie next year.

@capnrex101 - Thing is though, the star wars universe is still our universe, just ' a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away', therefore must work to our laws of physics. So claiming flying closer to black holes makes the route shorter is still wrong.

As much as I love the universe, they've had to explain away the poor science of it for years with these retcons. Same as how light sabers are actually plasma blades now, and that lasers are just a generic term for blaster weapons and so on.

Thanks Brickset. Although I didn't win it was great fun, especially trying to answer your (not as obvious as most completions) questions set. Great idea. Look forward to any more in the future.
- amd congratulations to the winners.

@merman I'm glad for reading that. I didn't got the first question right so I wouldn't win anyway, but it would sure be disappointing if you would sell it. The chances for selling the set on eBay is probably little. I don't know. However, the price shouldn't be over $100 or £100 which people sell the set for. :)

By in Netherlands,

@KyloRen0806 I never expected to win but actually selling it would be so greedy and ungrateful, so the slug is save with me (as a pet). I am sure it won't be able to catch the 75192 Falcon

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

As far as I can see the set contains no rare pieces so people who didn't win can build one and pretend they won.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

@merman I understand you. Competitions like these are there only a little chance for winning. I couldn't think you would sell the set but some people do only participate for selling the prize. Probably. There are many who want 75192 because of the price. Hope to get Escape the Space Slug in another way or I must buy it on eBay.

Thanks Brickset and Huw for hosting this contest. Congrats to the other winners.

And don't worry, this will be safe in my collection. I will not be Ebaying this!

Thanks again, Jamie

By in Czech Republic,

Fine. I'm off to ebay then. I need this set now.

By in United States,

Glad to see others were a little confused over ambiguity of pilot/co-pilot. Congrats winners--Sluggo is a worthy character :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Congratulations to the winners, and thanks to @huw and the team for hosting the competion in the first place.
Looking forward to more in the future.

By in Netherlands,

@KyloRen0806 i was referring to the size of this slug compared to the size of 75192 :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Oh well, at least I got the answers right.

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

@merman Oh, right ;) Could be funny to build a big Space Slug along with 75192. Biggest set ever :P

By in United States,

Did anyone do the math to figure out how fast mph or kpm would be?

Congrats to the winners!

FYI to all who would like some fun, the,
CELEB2015-1: Tatooine Mini-build,
SDCC2015-2: Dagobah Mini Build, and the
6176782-1: Escape the Space Slug

are all almost entirely capable of being built via lego's pick-a-brick and 'missing pieces' website.
step 1: find the scans of the sets instructions online,
step 2: make a quick list of the element #'s ( I used an excel spreadsheet)
step 3: place you order and use bricklink to fill in any odd parts,

I was able to fit it all together in about two weeks and spent about 90$CA including shipping for all three sets ( about 30$ each) I waited for a free shipping promo and place each order individually to avoid confusion.

very rewarding having all three side by side and not having to "worry" about Original packaging value so I got to build them guilt free, which is the point anyways"s :)

Happy hunting!
