This set is massive and not for the faint of heart! Definitely expert level and can't think of a set that is more satisfying to finish. Arguably the most collectible and best set ever made by Lego.
Where to start on this one. This is a brand new Falcon with all sealed bags. There are 80 sealed bags which does make a complete set. The 2 original mast riggings are with the set as well as you can see in one of the pics for those who are wondering about those. The box to this set has very minor shelf wear, very minor creases and as you can see looks nothing short of spectacular!
It would be very challenging to find a box in better condition. The box has all 3 inner boxes along with the manual holder. Very hard to find sets that have those.
The manual is of course brand new in very good condition with minimal wear. I have put it in a special zip lock bag to protect and keep it in.
As you can see it also comes with the original sticker sheet which is still brand new and has never been applied. You will notice that this sticker is also very rare as it has an error from the 1st run of these.
It says 12 quad cannon lasers on it when it should say 2 quad cannons like most of the others do. This is very rare and wasn't caught until early in the 1st production run. When Lego realized their mistake they changed it soon after.
This also means this certificate should have a low number due to the sticker misprint. Speaking of the certificate it is brand new and has never been opened.
You can be the 1st to open it and have the pleasure of seeing what number it is. It also has the 30th anniversary sticker which is brand new.
On top of all of this it comes with the original thank you letter from Lego when you bought one of the 1st editions. Most have thrown this letter away but this one has it.
Very rare and collectible to have that! Just for those that don't know the 1st edition falcons come with the special rebel logo on the lower left of the box, 30th anniversary sticker, thank you letter and of course the numbered certificate of authenticity.Absolutely nothing missing from this set and true dream for those collectors out there. These sets are getting very hard to find especially brand new and in this condition! This is a great set for those who just want to build the set brand new from scratch. Here is a chance to own one of the most iconic if not the most iconic sets Lego has ever made. Every true Lego fan should have one of these at least once in their life. I know many of my followers are used to seeing my table where I take my pics so don't be taken in by these fake listings. If you see these listings with my pics I guarantee you will be filing a claim and have unneeded heartache. I just don't want to see anyone get taken in and get scammed. Just be careful out there everyone!
Most of my sets are extremely rare and collectible. Many of my sets I have fixed up and spent a great deal of time making nice again if they weren't already. If you don't see anything here you can message me as I have a lot to list and a lot of multiple sets both used and new if you are looking for something in particular. My collection mostly consists of UCS, modulars, trains, sculptures and other very rare retired sets.
With that being said if you find some missing pieces or whatever I will make it right with you. Please message me with any problems you might find and I will work it out with you.
Also, please don't assume anything about an item. If you have questions or want more pics just ask. I will get back to you as soon as I can. I believe in treating others how I want to be treated and expect the same in return. These sets are mostly very large and when I put 2 together it can damage the other set.I will combine though if I feel like I can do it in a safe manner. I insure all of these sets and require signature confirmation. No exceptions unless you give me written consent. I want these sets to get to you as much as you want them as these are very expensive and collectible.
I will only charge you what it costs me and nothing more. I will use common sense here..
