The frenzy for the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192) continues to build even as stocks continue to sell out thanks to the flood of pre-orders. For a LEGO set as huge as this, it should only be expected to come bundled with exclusives and freebies.
As part of the parcel, buyers of the UCS Millennium Falcon will also get a limited-edition LEGO Star Wars VIP Card offering a stream of related LEGO Star Wars benefits and perks for a one-year membership period. The one that goes with the 75192 is considered to be extremely special on account of its Darth Vader-esque black color scheme.
Unless you bought the UCS Millennium Falcon right off from the LEGO Store in Leicester Square, London when it first debuted on September 13, then the only chance to have this exclusive VIP card is by mail. As of now, the card is not included in the box but will be mailed to buyers of the UCS Millennium Falcon, fully personalized and (if applicable) linked to already existing LEGO VIP accounts for old members.
While the LEGO website info notes that delivery of the card by mail might take six weeks, some proud new owners of the 75192 have reported receiving an email advisory, informing them that their VIP cards will actually be arriving at the end of November, if they got their Falcons by this month at the latest. One of them actually sent a screenshot of his notification.
These customers may well be the lucky ones. It’s been very hard going to keep the UCS 75192 kit stocked anywhere on both sides of the Atlantic, and the LEGO Star Wars VIP Card is said to be available only to in-store and online buyers of the massive Millennium Falcon model before the end of this year.
Odds are becoming slimmer though, for those who desire to bring home this set. While the details of the perks that a LEGO Star Wars VIP cardholder will get are still yet to be announced, the mere possession of this jet black VIP is seen as the important thing, for bragging rights. All that’s left now is to wish those who haven’t gotten the 75192 yet the best of luck.
