    Oh no! How will I waste $800 on now?! I guess just booze, drugs and strippers.

    You are overpaying for at least one of those.

    A couple dozen expensive strippers, and a few bottles of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.

    I'll probably get banned if I make the comment on what type of 'strippers' I'd get so instead....

    From Lego's website:

    Limited edition, collectible LEGO® Star Wars™ VIP Card

    Get your special edition membership card when you buy the Millennium Falcon™ (75192) and enjoy a full year of LEGO® Star Wars™ themed benefits!

    Who is eligible for the LEGO® Star Wars™ VIP Card?
    All VIP Members that purchase the Millennium Falcon™ (75192), including members signing up for the first time. This includes all countries VIP operates in, including countries that don’t normally receive physical membership cards. For country list, please see VIP.LEGO.com/terms.

    How will I receive my card?
    The card will be sent via postal mail - please note that cards are not available in Brand Retail Stores. These will also be sent via post to ensure they're personalised and if applicable, linked to a pre-existing account. This means that all previously earned points will be available on the new card and it will already be activated. The original account will need to be fully registered by December 31, 2017.

    What does the card do?
    Card holders will still receive all standard VIP benefits, in addition, they'll be eligible for a full year of special Star Wars-themed offers throughout 2018.

    What are the special offers that this card entitles a member to?
    Special offers will include points promotions, special events, gifts with purchase and more! The offers will be shared directly with applicable VIPs throughout 2018.

    Will the VIP Number on this card be different from my regular VIP card?
    Existing members will keep their existing number. It will be printed on both their original card and the Star Wars™ collectible one. They can be used interchangeably.

    Can I obtain this card without purchasing the Millennium Falcon™ (75192)?
    Unfortunately not. This card is meant as a special gift with the purchase of the Millennium Falcon™ (75192).
    Why can’t I have my card right when I purchase the Millennium Falcon™ (75192) in a LEGO® Brand Retail Store?

    This is to ensure the card is linked to any existing VIP accounts and personalized with the member's name, they need to be custom-printed, which is not possible at the Store.

    How long is the card available for?
    The collectible card is a limited-time offer until 12/31, or while stocks last.

    How long will it take to receive the card?
    It can take up to 6 weeks after purchase of the Millennium Falcon™ (75192) to receive the card.

    On Thursday, September 14, the LEGO Group gave its VIP members an opportunity to purchase the LEGO® Star Wars™ Millennium Falcon™. We are thrilled by the positive response to the set, which is the largest we’ve ever released so far. We can assure all our fans around the world, that we are doing everything we can to make more sets available and keep our LEGO builders happy. This set is currently sold out and will remain exclusive to VIP's at least through November as we work to meet consumer demand.

    Went to the store last week to see if they had any available. I was curious about the size of the box. They had none. Not only none, but none in the near future. You have to be on a waiting list. It's 80 people deep at my store. Upon phone call, you have 24 hours to pick it up. wow.

    'Hey this is the LEGO Store, your Falcon has come in. You have 23 hours and 43 minutes to come pick it up. I should have called you 15 minutes ago, but I was enjoying my coffee.'

    'But I'm on my way to visit my dying mother in the hospital, she doesn't have much longer to live'

    'Well you better hope she dies quickly so you can get to the Lego Store and pick up your Falcon, otherwise too bad for you.'

    Remember like 10 years ago when LEGO came out and said that it was primarily a kids' and that's what they focus on and 80-90% of their sales go to. Clearly that's no longer the case. It's now an adults only toy and children of the 1%.

    I have actually seen one show up on the beaten up box / returns of Amazon for $698.96 or something like that.

    That is still more expensive than any car my dad ever owned. :lol:

    Available at Lego S@H just in time for May-the-fourth. I wonder if it will still be available tomorrow at double vip points...

    Its showing up at Costco.ca

    https://www.costco.ca/LEGO%c2%ae-Star-W ... 23833.html

    I've never had a problem returning anything to Costco. With that in mind, would I have to disassemble it before I returned it? :-)
