Oh my, this is worse than the wait for a new Star Wars film. 3 teaser photos for a 1200 piece set!

Remember this one last year? 

Image result for lego caterham teaser photo

They also did a weekly teaser shot for the Caterham Seven set for three weeks. 

So we can expect the official unveiling of the Apollo 11 Saturn V set next week. :)

I´d release it in June once all the SW hype has died down, but what do I know?

I would have a short LEGO Shop at Home only production run with an early retirement.

I was thinking about lining my own pockets much like the politicians deciding that funding for NASA.

Any Ideas sets have stickers? I don't remember seeing any. Although I've only built Ecto-1 and the Yellow Submarine.

None that I recall

The Big Bang Theory set contains stickers.

This 1200pcs ideas set will be about how much?

The rumour is that's the Italian LEGO Shop at Home price will be €119,99. Then the German price might turn out to be €109,99 and that's usually the same price as the dollar price.

Take that with some grains of salt though. :)

Well it's Friday and the past 3 Fridays theyve posted a teaser. Nothing today. I think a reveal is imminent. I'll do another search again for images but I don't think anything will pop up.

I think I'm looking forward to this set more than any set since Mars Rover, to quote Willy Wonka, the suspense is killing me, I hope it'll last...

Same here, but it won't be as exclusive as MR was. This beauty will be sold everywhere which will kill its investment chances I think. Just wait to get it at >50% off like everything else these days. The days of exclusive LEGO are over.

Same here. I've been hyped for this set ever since the results video approved it for official production! Dying to see official set images and to get it at release.

Does anybody know how exclusive this set will be? We all know that this is criticsl to its investment potential. I'll be ordering mine on day one regardless.

Based on Yellow Submarine and Adventure Time, it will be exclusive to any shop that sells anything.

I don't care if it's exclusive, I just know I want one.

Not at all being sarcastic here; I think we all know that LEGO has really gone away from the exclusive concept with exception of the occasional star wars or super hero set.

Which in The Netherlands means you either buy it directly from LEGO Shop at Home (preferably when there's a good promo running), or accept additional P&P when buying from foreign web-stores like Amazon Italy:

I'm not sure why these Ideas sets are not sold in regular brick & mortar toy stores here. Either the stores consider these sets as too niche and don't want to spend shelf space on them, or TLG simply doesn't put Ideas sets on the wholesale order list for Dutch toy stores / 3rd party Lego selling stores...
