We could almost buy our own ship for that!

Oddly enough, I actually have a Millenium Falcon in my closet that looks almost exactly like that (not as big, though). Got it for my 10th birthday I think.

I recently cave and bought the Lego X-Wing.

There's a LOT of paint on that thing and it's huge. How much do you think it should cost. Take a load of this:

I hate these reissues.
I paid $800 for a MISB Millennium Falcon from 1979 15 years ago and this reissue makes mine a lot less unique.

Not at all, the uber collectors will have to now fight EXTRA hard to make sure theirs is an original and not a reissue.

Ah, the collector more worried about his investment than the happy bunches who now have access to piece at an affordable rate.

I. Flores says:
It's far from affordable. You can get a Vintage one with a decent box for collecting purposes for less than that.
And the fact that the old Falcon retailed for $25 in 1979 ($75 of today's dollars) so affordable it surely isn't.

I have the original MF toy in its box. Got it from a garage sale for $3.

I'm sure anybody will be able to easily spot the differences between an original and a reissue. lol.

I'll just get the Lego one.

I would too but those aren't exactly cheap.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 3, 2012 12:50:16 PM PST
Well, $120 is cheaper than $190 at least.

And I'd have a heck of a lot more fun with it.

But collectors pieces are what they are - nostalgia in a box. I recently went bananas over this:

Yeah, that is totally worth going nuts over though. With the little car that shoots out of the trailer? I so wanted this when I was a kid.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 3, 2012 12:58:47 PM PST
Yep, I have an MP-10 Prime and imported an MP Sideswipe to fit in the trailer.

Original Optimus Prime was my first ever Transformer and this figure looks like he stepped out of the cartoon. He's simply amazing.

MP-12 was my first ever import. Very close to making MP Soundwave my second.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 3, 2012 1:01:41 PM PST
I have MP Grimlock, both MP Starscreams, MP Skywarp with the older Seeker mold and MP Thundercracker with the newer mold. I had MP Rodimus for about two days and ended up selling it. I was never a fan of Rodimus.

Err, what's MP?

Masterpiece. It's a line of Transformers that looks to replicate the cartoon aesthetic to teh best of it's ability. They're expensive by Transformer standards and generally intended for adult collectors.

Would you ever be willing to post pictures of your vintage Star Wars toy collection? I'd love to see it.

Posted on Dec 3, 2012 3:51:51 PM PST
I thought I have seen this before at Toys R Us for $99 back during Episode I. Is it a different one? Anyway, I'd better off with 3DS XL bundle that they have.
