Similar thing happened to me. I ordered the 7 new SW sets from the lego shop right as they dropped last Thursday around 9:00pm PST. They shipped out yesterday and my order was missing the Falcon and X-wing. I got an email saying the X-wing was sold out but they would be shipping it in the next week or so. I was surprised that it sold out in a matter of minutes I guess. Then later I got an email that the falcon shipped separately. Super stoked to get these new sets in!!

:shock: Totes jelly! Gonna pick up the new Falcon at some point. Don't have the previous one so I don't feel like I'm rebuying anything. Congrats on all the sets!

Saw that Hasbro is releasing Poe's Blue X-Wing...think Lego will do the same? Would be pretty cool to get the blue one and the black one. Looking to pick these up soon.

On a side note: has anyone purchased the Sphero BB8? I just found one today...gonna give it to my kids for Christmas.

Yeah i might have to grab that too. I thought it was almost the same as the unimog but with further inspection
looks like there are larger pneumatic linear actuators which is cool, and the thing must be a beast because the unimog
is huge, and the arocs looks much bigger.

Ok, it's late and I've been working on this post for well over an hour...so...without any further ado...

Here is the prize that one of our hopeful builders will win:

PLEASE BE KIND WITH YOUR COMMENTS. WE HAVE CHILDREN'S ENTRIES ON BOARD :D

Some entries came with names, some without...so all of them got and will be referred to with numbers. (By me at least) Feel free to name them when voting...but please try to distance yourself from identifying your creation in the thread. Let's keep the entries anonymous until we have a winner.

I will say that I really like several of these entries and would be torn between at least three. Glad I'm not voting!

Ladies and Gentlemen...start your engines...it's time for a kart race, erm...contest!
