Millennium Falcon update sent to VIPs, VIP Access Extended
Thursday, September 28th, 2017 at 9:29pm by Danny, BZPower Reporter
You may have heard about LEGO's recent release of a large new Millennium Falcon set — and about their issues with keeping it in stock, even during the special VIP-only access period. Today, they've taken the unusual step of contacting VIP cardholders to announce an extension of that early access period through November, as well as the ability to receive an e-mail when the set is back in stock online. They also recommend visiting your favorite LEGO Brand Retail store to ask a Brick Specialist to add you to the wait list.
Full text of the e-mail appears after the break, without the link to sign up to receive back-in-stock notifications (those links are specific to the VIP cardholder that received the e-mail).
Hello LEGO® Star Wars™ Fan,
As you may know, the new LEGO® Star Wars™ Millennium Falcon (75192), our largest LEGO set ever, went on sale exclusively to VIP Members on September 14. We are very excited that we received such a positive response from fans like yourself, it exceeded all of our expectations! Unfortunately, that also means the first batch has already sold out.
The good news is we are making more as quickly as possible and expect to have very limited quantities available for the remainder of 2017. We have extended the VIP-only access period, which means the new inventory will remain exclusive to VIPs at least through November.
To make your wait a little easier, you can now sign up to receive back-in-stock notifications. Simply confirm your interest below and we’ll email you when a new batch of the Millennium Falcon (75192) is available on shop.LEGO.com
If you'd rather make your purchase at your favorite LEGO Brand Retail store, please call or visit your local store starting Friday 9/29 and ask a Brick Specialist to add you to the wait list.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, we are doing everything we can to keep up with the demand from our loyal LEGO fans like yourself!
*Please note, stock will be in very limited supply and each batch will likely sell out quickly. Signing up for notifications does not guarantee availability of the product.
