The Millennium Falcon has been so popular there appears there are six known sets, and seven versions. Four of which share the exact same product name. Millennium Falcon, 2000 (7190) 600+ pieces Millennium Falcon, 2003 (4488) Microscale version with only 87 pieces. Millennium Falcon, 2004 (4504) 900+ pieces (New minifigures with the flesh skin colour). ...
That looks like 30384 Windscreen 7 x 4 x 2 Round. In general, BrickLink is a pretty decent place to browse around for parts identification. Peeron is also pretty good. BrickLink provides a comprehensive list of windscreens both plain and decorated.
This is the Trans-Black Windscreen 7 x 4 x 2 Round
I don't have it, but BrickLink already has inventories of all submodels. According to them, day 1 is a Republic Cruiser. This is a mini version of 7665 — Republic Cruiser. They do look quite similar for sets of a such different scale: Sadly, Wookiepedia doesn't have a picture of a republic-class cruiser, but I suppose that's what it is.
There is a website, http://rebrickable.com/, that lets you enter the sets you have, and it compares the inventories to other sets to determine which other official sets you can build with those pieces. It also includes unofficial MOCs that other builders have submitted, and it will substitute other part colors if you choose. For example, just entering the ...
By using two TV wall mounts, you could put it against the wall on its side. This guy was able to do with the LEGO Millennium Falcon(Ultimate Collector 10179). Here's a link to some pictures that shows how he interfaced the TV mount with the LEGO bricks. You will have to make some modifications to the kit but that's a good reason why LEGO are fun.
They made them solid black so there are no alignment issues when veiwing the masked minifigures. By leaving them blank LEGO ensured the eye slots always appear black. Side note: The only Stormtroopers seen without helmets in the StarWars Movies were Han and Luke in disguise, therefore Stormtroopers are faceless.
You have three basic choices, depending on how much time you want to spend: Sell the collection as-is (with as much honest description as you can muster and great photos if you're selling on-line). Sort the collection into sets and sell them as-is with parts / figs missing. Sort into sets and replace missing parts / figs. These three are not mutually ...
I just put the box on my balance, and the weight is 275.26 gr. Yes, I have this in my shop.
There is one going in the small blue trolley on page 4. These pages don't show parts inventories, and the part is partly hidden, so it's very easy to overlook. The other one is an extra, as explained in comment.
As far as I know, all of the most common vehicles have been produced, but I could be forgetting something. There are many obscure vehicles which have not been produced, but I don't see any reason to try to list them all. Some examples would be many of the pod racers from Episode I, many of the hundreds of vehicles shown on Coruscant, or several of the ...
According to BrickLink it is a Trade Federation MTT
Republic Cruiser Is this the one you were looking for? You can see the entire selection of mini-models on Bricklink.
Unfortunately, even with the best market conditions, there is always a trade off between selling things at a high price and selling things fast. That's just a principle of marketing. That said, you might consider these options: BrickLink / Brick Owl These are sites that specialize in trading LEGO. I can't comment further, as I've only used these sites as ...
Only ever throw out LEGO that has sustained actually irreversible damage, bricks that have been bent beyond repair or snapped. It so rarely happens that I can find a suitable picture. In this case, I would assume the longest plates and tiles would be more likely to be damaged. I'd go through the painful process of dismantling the model and starting again, ...
The latest Star Wars sets (for example 9489 - Endor Rebel Trooper & Imperial Trooper Battle Pack) do have faces printed on the black Storm Trooper heads, which doesn't work all that well with the Scout Trooper, unless you put it on backwards: However, looking at them, you can clearly see there are issues with printing on black plastic - the faces ...
I don't think there's any rule about that, and most probably various factors influence the length of time for which a set is available. From experience, I'd tend to say that most sets last around 2 years, but it's certainly not fixed in stone, so don't take my word for it. Considering exclusives usually mean more benefit for LEGO, it would make sense for ...
That is not the URL you're looking for ;) Apparently you need to enter the codes on the LEGO.com Star Wars Advent Calendar page.
Bricklink's set database keeps track of weight and dimensions. The weight listed includes packaging. Luke's Landspeeder weighs 272 grams.
In addition to the excellent answers given here, I will add this one, which was learned the painful way and now given in hindsight... DON'T BUILD A COMPLEX MODEL ON THE FLOOR. Use a table or other elevated space. Building it on the floor with an excited child around is just asking for trouble.
The four codes are as follows: December 01: Y15C05 December 08: Y30C03 December 15: Y73C14 December 22: Y12C34
One of my friends who had a similar issue with the LEGO Millennium Falcon (10179) beastie, got a custom coffee table built for it, it has a toughened glass top, and glass side panels, to show off it's true beauty (I believe the next step is to hook it up with some strip LED lighting too). I don't know how feasible that would be for the SSD, I don't know the ...
(7259) ARC-170 or (8088) ARC-170 Starfighter. The part can be found in these sets on Bricklink and a cool alternative list.
One of the issues I see is that you're missing most of the minifigs, these generally aren't available individually through the LEGO store. As you've seen for a complete boxed set of some of these kits are very expensive to buy second hand; they are no longer in production and some people are willing to pay that much to own them. In terms of selling what ...
The SSD auction will be a scam and the minifigs are indeed knock-offs of which eBay is awash.
The short answer is no, this does not make your set more valuable. You have recieved a set that contains what Bricklink calls an "Alternate Item". These are alternate pieces/stickers/colors/etc. that are packaged into normal sets by LEGO in order to ship out the sets in the event of a part shortage. They are perfectly normal. And, usually, they are more ...
The parts are from the 8016 LEGO Star Wars Hyena Droid Bomber from 2009.
I will suggest you carefully dismantle sections of the construction so that you can see all the bricks and can recognize the hidden parts against the instructions. Then build up different sections with the aid of the instructions. If there are larger parts of the construction that are not damaged, you can keep these intact, and just take apart sections ...
There are quite a few: The Naboo silver cruisers - I think there were three in all - none produced. Several speeders in Episode II, all seen in the city and several transporters too. The Jedi speeders, some have been made, but not in all the colours seen in the movies. And as for the clone wars series, the list becomes lengthy...
For a guy who's 20 you can ignore the age limits. Lego used to label set with "N..99" age limits but these days that sort of humour is less appreciated. It's still true, though. I suggest focus more on what he's interested in, and what you think he'd enjoy building. Within the Lego Star Wars range there are quite a lot of options. If he's mostly into ...
