I won't be at the midnight opening but will be at the nearby press event beforehand. If you're going and expect to be in Leicester Square around 10:30pm drop me a line and perhaps we can meet up. I guess by then there could be a bit of a queue building!

We'll be posting updates throughout the evening on Twitter (@brickset) and Facebook so stay tuned for all the latest news and goss.

Important points to note:

I guess there is already a bit of a queue building, anyone in the queue already reading this?

Really want this set but could have done with it launching at Christmas bonus time. Hopefully the price means there is plenty of stock as Christmas approaches.

Does anyone know if Lego.com are also going to start selling it at midnight for VIPs? I've emailed them but so far no response.

I am hoping to get there for around 7-8pm. Driving 3hrs to get there so lets see what it's like when I arrive. If I am number 151 or higher in the queue I will be gutted. But still will be staying till the end.

Hearing from others that there is over 30 in the queue already. I think I might not be one of the lucky ones

"It's a trap!!"

Oh how easily we are fooled...

So now instead of staying up to the normal time, I'll have to get up early to hit F5 at 7.29am........... bah !!!!

Early Access for VIPs starts from 7:30 am on 14th September

Max of 3 online, although my local store says max of 1 :-) per person but they do only have 24 in store... and i'm not queuing from 6am when the shopping centre opens to get one maybe at 9am when LEGO opens...

Just had a thought, is that 7.30am GMT, BST or CET ???
If I get the time zone wrong could be sold out within an hour :-(

Wow another thought, we're all going mental over staying up late, getting up early, travelling hundreds of miles, queuing up, selling a kid/wife/kidney (delete as applicable) to afford this £650 plastic work of art :-) perhaps I just need more medication and wait until a triple points month..... no... I must have one tomorrow at 7.30:01am (most probably 6.30:01am just to be sure).

PPS - Who wants to guess that the LEGO website crashes and isn't online until 11.30am....... (raises hand) :-)

@blitzspear you should start refreshing the site now, just in case, and keep it up until it becomes available - maybe they will be 12 hours out and it wiil be available at 7.30 tonight, or 4.39 am... you won't know unless you keep trying!

In the queue I think I might be number 98. Let's hope so. Only 5 hrs 45 mins to go

@darkstonegrey
Everyone got an #30611 R2-D2 polybag if they didn't win the main prizes. But there were 2 (or 3?) #6176782 Escape the Space Slug sets available and 1 free #75192 UCS Millennium Falcon.
