Has anyone heard if this will be Available tomorrow or do we wait until March?

I heard some Lego stores received their stock but no ETA on release.

So they actually made a 'broken' old style space helmet? That's pretty cool.

I laughed when I saw the cracked helmet in the trailer, because I have a bunch of those helmets broken exactly like that.

Nice ship, but way too expensive.

Awesome. So much detail from both interior and exterior. The real object is looking much better than the box art from leaking image.

Obviously, TLG was listening to builders complaints by loading more cannons at the ship.

It's appropriate for the piece count.

Especially considering the type of pieces...
I have mixed feelings about new releases: I can't wait to see and get the new sets... but I can't figure out where I'm gonna put them or store them.
