The LEGO store events calendar for October has been released. It'll come as no surprise that the recently announced 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon goes on sale on October 1st, but you might want to hold off buying it until October 10th when a double VIP points offer starts. There's no word yet if the exclusive VIP card will be available in October though.

This "rare" big fig is now available for order from Disneystore.com. Scalpers have been trying to sell this for three times retail on eBay. If you were holding out, you just won.

After spending the first quarter of the year denying the UCS Millennium Falcon existed and then the most recent quarter dropping countless Easter Eggs and teasers, LEGO is going all out and making it impossible for us to ignore that they have dropped the unexpected (typed with a touch of sarcasm) bombshell on us. And they aren't going to help us deny ourselves the pleasure of buying this set because - on top of the three exclusive posters that will be available on Force Friday II weekend - there is now going to be an exclusive card for LEGO VIP members who order their 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon on September 14th and 15th.

Because triple VIP points (worth US$120) and an exclusive polybagged Star Wars set from shop@home isn't enough - LEGO have sweetened the deal with not one, not two but three limited edition promotional posters. They will be free with a qualifying LEGO Star Wars purchase, while stocks last, and a different one will be made available on September 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Rebelscum will be revealing one per day - so click on the thumbnail above to see what the first one looks like.

Coming on October 1st at Shop.LEGO.com for $799, the much-anticipated (and equally denied) 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon with a whopping, staggering 7,541 pieces! At the moment this is for show only - VIP members will be able to order theirs on September 14th and 15th while the rest of the Star Wars public will have to wait until October 1st.

While the world's retailers are still technically under a Disney Lucasfilm embargo it seems that the LEGOLAND park in the German city of GŁnzburg is not only putting them out on display, but their park's store has been actually selling them. With thanks to Promobricks.de for sharing their report.
