    I'll have to call the Dreamworld store and check.

    Another UCS MF? Not sure I'm sold on it but I guess if George Lucas can keep cashing in on the same thing over and over why not Lego lol. If I bought one it would only be as an investment given the last release and that's probably what will happen to 99% of them. Bit of a shame really.

    I suspect that'll be beyond my budget. Even at 20% off...

    Was hoping it would be something else cause I already have the 1st UCS MF. I'll only be getting this one if there is a clear upgrade somewhere compared to the first one. Just shelled out $600 for the new Death Star (got discount), looks like it'll be another expensive Lego year.

    The rumors are that its much more than a rerelease of the 1st UCS falcon. Supposedly ~8000 pieces and now has an interior too. The big problem with a set of that scale is that its rather hard to display, which I think is why so many of the 1st release are just stored in the box in cupboards.

    Anyway, if it is indeed the falcon in UCS scale, i'll be getting one. Will have to build a new display case though to fit it in though!

    I really hope those rumors are true. Conveniently for me I already have a spare space in my sealed built-in wall cabinet that's next to the 1st UCS MF.

    Got the 42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator yesterday in Hong Kong.
    HKD1400 = AUD225.77

    Bargain!

    Also got the 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS a month ago in HK.
    HKD1790 = AUD288.67

    Both still in the original Lego brown cardboard shipping box.
    The larger sets are less popular in HK because apartments in HK are too small and people have difficulty storing/displaying.

    Anyone visiting HK, please go to "In's Point" - Yau Ma Tei MTR stop.
    In's Point, 530-538 Nathan Rd, Yau Ma Tei

    Most stores cash only.
    Most prices are marked, no bargaining/haggling unless you buy a truck load.
    The stores with unmarked prices are cheaper than the marked stores!

    Sweet, good pick, redslert! Let me know if you have any drama with the bucket, mine sticks and causes all kinds of drama with all of the mechanized stuff :(

    Holy cow that was quick it sold out already.
    Lucky I set it to notify me when it came into stock.
    Looks to be a very sought after set.

    Got my e-mail from LEGO today saying my Saturn V has shipped. Now to seek out glass display cabinet number 2 that matches the one I already have. Wonder if I can make one out of LEGO....

    Toyworld? Or Toys'r'us?

    There's one down the road, may need to go for a walk...

    Picked up 42068 Airport Rescue Vehicle and 42069 Extreme Adventure last week and 42070 6x6 All Terrain Tow Truck yesterday, all in the BigW sale.
    To the end of my pile of shame they go.
