hi

The falcon i have is the UCS version. But the kessel run is an awesome set. The UCS Slave 1 is now a retired set. But I know the Lego Store Manchester still has it as do Smyths toys

That will be your best bet to get one

Thanks for the info Mr Chill k awarded . :doh: :angry-banghead: Falcon is a birthday present for March so can't get Slave 1 :angry-banghead: :angry-banghead: . Was going to ask why they don't keep a popular item always available but Caspers post shows why.

Most ucs sets have a two year life cycle, so shelf don't get stuffed with old models.

The new slave 1 is smaller than the ucs variant. But still looks great

Only want the Star Destroyer. The other doesnt really grab my attention.

Besides my list goes as follows

UCS Star Destroyer.
Flint Stones Set
Mustang Creator Class Set
Avengers End Game sets - ive seen some 'leaked images' (which I wont share on here) and they look good .
Also the last two Lego Movie sets which may or may not be true no image but described as Bill and Ted and a John Mcclaine and the Notorious Ruth Bader Gettysburg USA Court Judge. they are in the Lego Movie 2 film so i can talk about them
Lego Ideas Tree of Life
Lego Steamboat Mickey Mouse
Lego Ideas FRIENDS Set

As i said the Avengers set images may or may not be real. Set numbers are out there. So until they are officially announced I wont be posting links. Still should be announced next month as film is out in April. Stilll the large set to be annouced - UCS . Like the Hulkbuster or the Helicarrier from the other releases of set.
