Both Paris shops received 20 or so MFs yesterday but apparently already sold out. Disappointing as I had signed up for the notification but received no communication from Lego.

That would be why there was a massive queue in the Brighton store yesterday afternoon around about 3.30!no kids in store just all adults!!

Metrocentre store is still saying December as far as they know.

Does anyone know when the black VIP cards will be sent out. I thought it was meant to be 6 weeks but it's about 7 or so now and no mention even on Lego fan sites. This is a real thing is it - or did I dream it?

The Lego House instagram had a video snippet where the MF was labeled "delayed by hurricanes " - so might be more than just producing it at scale...?

There doesn't seem to be a minimum spend for the PayPal offer. Standard UK delivery is £3.95. Now what can I find in the store that is £1.05 or less so I can get it for free....

Brighton had 32 Falcons delivered at 11am yesterday. There was already 8 people queuing at opening time!

UK Milton Keynes has UCS MF on the shelf. Lots of people picking it up and having a good look! But putting it back!

Find also news of a few 75192 stock in several retailers or Lego shops in France, on French AFOL site and forum “Hoth Bricks“. Yesterday there were still some to be taken in Lille (for sure, but that was yesterday evening...) Disney Lego Store, maybe Bordeaux and Lego Store Les Halles... But only a few boxes, that sold very very quickly. So phone before you take your car and drive fast through parisian or other jam traffic to find it sold out, as a few French fans did unfortunately... Good luck!

In the United States, they're slowly getting stock, and one by one they're emailing us on the waiting list. My store got 6, and that was two weeks ago. I'm tenth on the list so hopefully they get at least four more.

Hey... why can’t Dutchies like myself not subscribe for the AirBnB-prizewinning??

Lego store in Brighton has sold out, sorry gloat I just purchased the last one they currently have. However I have been told that they are expecting to have full stock on the 1st December. That’s both in store and online

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Any idea on online stock yet? Still just says temporarily out of stock. Would have thought they would start at least taking back orders again to get us going.

Sheffield are getting some MF in on Monday.

The Watford Brand Store had a delivery of 27 Falcons yesterday (Friday) but only 4 remained at around 10.30 this morning (Saturday).

By beginning of December Lego will miraculously fix these shortages :).This all is just good pr but they must stop this charade or they will skip Christmas sales. So by then all lego shops will have full stock.

By in United States,

You Brits are lucky. I would love to get that PayPal discount.

By in Denmark,

LEGO Store in Copenhagen had 24 MFs for sale yesterday, happy to have picked up one of them! Rumor is that similar small shipments will hit LEGO brand stores every month until end of the year, maybe 2-3 times.

By in United States,

Huw, the callendar link points to your hard drive :) Nothing terrible but may use some fixing.

Picked up a MF this morning at 10 in Oberhausen, saw at least 10 being sold while i was in the store and saw lego employees restocking a couple MF's early in the afternoon

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Thanks for the PayPal info. Used that to offset postage for the two seasonal Xmas sets which were not available at metrocentre shop this morning and saved a bit on retail price as well. Plus was able to use the code for another free gingerbread man.

Thanks muchly OrmskirkBricks
Going to MK tomorrow
to pick it up,
to know how it feels,
to see the look on my Wife's face,
and put it back :)

Paypal discount? PayPal has NEVER worked for me on the Lego Shop! Ever! Pointless.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The Paypal discount is weird - in Paypal's setup screen for the transaction it showed the £5 being removed from the cost of my order (£19.99 Women of Nasa + £3.95 postage), but they ended up taking the full amount anyway. I mean, the detailed info did say it would be £5 off a future purchase; it just seems weird to contradict that during the payment process... if the £5 doesn't get applied to a future purchase I'll live, since I would've bought this full price without the offer; just seems weird how they set it all up.

By in Netherlands,

Unfortunately there are no LEGO Stores in The Netherlands, so I have to wait untill the UCS MF is in stock in the online LEGO Shop or I have to drive all the way to a brand store in Germany or Belgium with the chance of all the UCS MFs already being sold out.

Please, give us a LEGO Store!

As the Falcon has a whole page to itself in the store calendar I suspect there's some truth to the 1st December for stock across all stores and online ...predictably after the Brick Friday deals ;-)

I'll order a Falcon online but if there's no mention of the black VIP card [email protected] can have it back and I'll wait for triple points to re-order. It's about time Lego provided some more insight with regards to the black card.

I see Jamie's very heavily involved with the Air BnB 'sleepover' - sounds amazing for a family to enjoy together and truly a once in a lifetime experience to sleep overnight in the Lego House. It kind of raises questions like - how many overnight guards will make sure you don't escape or mess with anything in the Lego House? Will you have access to a shower? Will you have access to PF to make an alarm clock? Will Jamie be joining you overnight? All important questions... ;)

I managed to get a Falcon at Bluewater yesterday, they had 6 left at around 4pm.

By in Denmark,

The second 'UK offer' is also valid in DK, so maybe this is an EU thing?

By in United Kingdom,

Did a 4 hour round trip from King's Lynn to Blue water yesterday... And successfully bagged a Falcon, with a free VIP set and Xmas box set. There were just over 20 left at 2pm when I got there.

By in United States,

First I've seen of Joker Manor--that's a pretty amazing looking set!

5 hour round trip yesterday from Gloucester to Leicester Square to get my Falcoln & Lester's :)

Quidco offering 7% cashback at lego [email protected] for those not wanting to click through bricksets links.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ 7% back would be a good deal on a Falcon ...if there was any in stock :-/

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The £5 voucher is handled internally by PayPal, not LEGO. The LEGO shopping website will still charge you the full amount but Paypal will deduct £5 from the transaction before debiting your account or charging your credit card. Once you've completed the order you can only find reference to the discount by digging into the transaction record on your Paypal account.

@Joefish, too bad we in The Netherlands can't pay with PayPal (or iDEAL) on the LEGO Shop. I had to get a MasterCard Credit card solely for the purpose of purchasing the UCS MF (which I haven't been able to get my hands on yet).

M F In stock at The Metrocentre at 2pm this afternoon - they had about 20

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ I concur ...picked one up myself too

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@mr_skinny was that you trundling through Debenhams at 2.15?
The handle came straight off mine and I had to carry it!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ Congrats!!! Did you guys get any additional freebies other than the 24 in 1 xmas build up? i.e. the VIP store/card set? Metrocentre quite often has freebies after the official end of the promo.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Jackthenipper yes that was me in Debenhams. I managed to get lost and went all the way around the store :-D

@Brainslugged Metrocentre gave me the Christmas build-up set and the VIP baggie too

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Meadowhall had around 40 MF delivered this morning. Managed to get mine by being there an hour before they opened, but there were already 15 people in the queue by 10am so I'd assume they've sold out again now

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Brainslugged I got both the freebies too - when I saw mr_skinny with the box I ran through Debenhams to the Lego store - the staff found it highly amusing! It was a pretty nice crew in there today - they were very friendly and seemed genuinely pleased to know that mine is going to me made as a family effort with me and the kids!

So pleased some millennium falcons are starting to filter through and people who actually want them instead of scalpers are starting to get their hands on them at last.
I luckily managed to grab one at the beginning of October after I missed out because of the online debacle on the 14th September.
I just hope the Taj Mahal will have good availability as I’d really like one for Christmas. I’m going to Meadowhall hall store sometime this week, if they do happen to have any falcons (which I doubt) I’ll report it on this thread!!!

@Jackthenipper I got the same vibes by the crew in the Metrocentre store too. As I walked in someone asked if I needed help, I said "I'm after a really big Falcon" with a grin on my face and was ushered straight down to the team on the tills who were brilliant. There had been folk starting to visit the shop at 9.01am apparently but I was working until 1pm and after the longest drive ever (seemed that way, was only 1 hour!) got there at the same time as the delivery :-)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@mrdoofa - too true... I was fuming at the guy in Cardiff who proudly displayed five of them on his ebay auction!

@mr_skinny - absolutely - they seemed genuinely chuffed when they knew the box seals were giong to be broken within 10 seconds of getting home!

Glasgow store has the Falcon in stock too, picked one up this morning

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It's a bit strange buying a Falcon at the moment if a store has stock. Even though the general release date was 1st October I had to have my VIP card yesterday to buy one. The lad in the store explained that the stock is being treated as 'back order' and to help the VIPs that missed out on the 14th September which is why the physical stores receiving stock isn't being publiscised by Lego themselves. Purely first come first served though so without word of mouth and sites like Brickset I'd of missed out again. Cheers Bricksetters!
