Was hoping I'd see one more sale price on this. Picked 1 up- thanks for the tip!

Great set, one of the best ever (and my personal all time favorite), whoever is on the fence about this set should pick it up now before its gone for good or going for 3x msrp

great deal!

Its the only UCS set we keep on display in our house.

very artistic triangular angles. Over the last few years, it has garnished the most compliments from our guests!

10212 also doesn't require a glass display case or specifically designed mount or shelving unit to display appropriately such as UCS Falcon and SSD Executor. so it fits nicely into one's den,library or mancave.

I've always enjoyed displaying UCS sets, especially Falcon and SSD. Both have a huge "wow" factor when displayed appropriately.

What I love about the UCS Imperial Shuttle is that it can look visually stunning from just about any end table, coffee table or bookshelf in the house.

Seems like this set will also ship to Canada. Did a mock order as a test, ends up being $274.58 when you include shipping and the duty fee already added (I'm assuming with this in it, you won't get any hidden fees when you get it at the door). That comes out to around 21% off Canadian retail price. 21% off the Canadian price isn't bad, but it sucks a bit that the shipping and duty eat into the savings...that is unless you got an American mailbox you can ship to. Still a bit too pricy to me, but it isn't bad.

Just got one, before the price goes up again. Is this really so good? I have only seen pictures not an actual build

Trust me when i say this will be your favorite set of all time or at least top 5. I was on the fence about this one too a while back but when i finally picked one up and built it I kicked myself for waiting so long. This is the only set i will keep built forever. I will take down my modulars and other large sets but this set will forever be displayed in all its glory.

Ggwaah, I must stop reading this forum. I thought I was finished shopping for the year, but I just can't pass this up, esp after reading comments and brickset reviews. Thanks, guys.

I struggled for couple hours and eventually picked one up just now. Spent $1000 on the deals in the past three days. I'm feeling sorry for my husband... Not really:D

The comments here are tempting me. I was on the fence but I'm still not to the point of pulling the trigger. I kind of want the deal to end quickly so I'm not tempted. :evil:

If it wasn't a ship I'd have bought it already. Ships are a dime a dozen, we all have a ton. I have been shying away from buying Star Wars sets that are more ships.

Just signed up for the amazon credit card to get the extra $50 off for this. With tax and everything it came out to $151! I'm very excited about this pickup.

I am not trying to dump on this deal at all...but I think people opening up a credit card for this deal should think twice. A Hard Pull on your credit report should be worth a lot more than this discount to you. I have read up about various Credit Card deals, and they say $100 cash isn't enough for a hard pull, let alone a nominal discount on a purchase as this. If you wanted an Amazon Card and have been waiting for a deal then by all means, just don't want people going out and possibly dinging their credit for a discount. I am no expert, just regurgitating info I have researched on the net :)

$209 is a fair deal on this soon to be gone set!

Opening a credit card is fine, just not the Amazon Visa! Go for say the Southwest Visa and get your free 50k points, which will get you $500 in Amazon gift cards.

I couldn't resist the power of the dark side and ordered another one. As the Emperor would say: "good".
Why do we drive on a parkway and park on a driveway?

Going by your avatar, I can't say I'm surprised.

Actually opening/even applying for credit lines does affect your credit score. I was trying to say that the $50 credit they offer is not worth the hard pull....as you said other offers yield substantially more for the potential ding on your credit(everyones situation is different). I didn't think this was the correct place to get into all those details ;)

I would not worry about a "hard pull" from opening a credit card, unless your score is realy low. But even then, in the long run having more credit vs debt brings the score up. In fact "hard pulls" are very common in almost all credit and some banking transactions. Losts of info on the web for hard pulls and soft pulls too. If you need Lego....get the credit!

Couldn't resist picking up a 2nd one of these. I haven't received it yet, but it did ship a day or two ago.
