    If I may offer some friendly advice: Never, ever pre-order from ebay. It's very easy and common for products of this nature to slip on their shipping date. There are some unethical types who know this and want your money and will wait for the clock to run out. You have a set number of days to contest a sale and ask for a refund. After that ebay will do nothing. Same for paypal. Never buy an item on ebay from someone unless they have the product and it's ready to ship. If they make excuses and say they will send later that's a big red flag.
    I got screwed out of a U2 boxed set once because they ran out the clock and it was too late to file a complaint

    Thats a good point. I will be careful to check the feedback score before buying. I have had items from china go past the 30 day ship date and Ebay have steped in to get me my money as the seller would face having the account closed, and if they many thousands of positive feedback they would unlikely want to risk such a thing. But its always important to vet the seller in all cases.

    Thats a very good price!!!! I have done some searching and that website has got great reviews from people who have ordered and built kits on youtube,as well as other places.

    $150 deposit(Non refundable) plus the $189.95 and $80 shipping (to the UK) when its released by paypal. I can do that more easily than trying to pay all of it now in one go.

    I guess im waiting till December to get this kit

    Thanks for the link dude

    No worries! Of all the options currently available to us this is by far the best option for those of us who don't need the kit immediately or who live in places that will have to order internationally anyway

    CultTVMan's price is great. I'm glad people are going to get a chance to order through them. When you factor in shipping, it's about the same price I'm paying from GundamUSA with a 10% off discount. A win for everyone.

    Is that CultTVMan price the full price or just the initial reservation price?

    I dunno, J. I may have to make a moral stand and insist that the OOF (the Original Original Falcon) is the only true Falcon, which would make the Rogue Studios Replica a "Special Edition."

    I'm messin' with ya.

    Ha,....I'm actually happy that there's a healthy fully detailed one to be along side the original,....I'd rather that than having the original touched up

    I just wish the CG asset was more like this one, without all the extra pipework

    The TFA Falcon can be forgiven since the ship is supposed to be 30 years older. A few extra pipes and new panels are to be expected. In fact, there probably should've been more changed, IMHO. It remains to be seen how successfully the asset will be revised for the Han Solo movie and whether it looked any different during Lando's ownership. Han did say he made modifications, but whether those will be obvious visually is another question. Maybe Lando's version had a triangular radar dish.

    Surely Lando's version will be more stylish. At least on the interior.
