I mean, I've heard of extra parts, but this is ridiculous!
And here's the Falcon in the background, just for proof.

So am I just extremely lucky, or did anyone have a bunch of left and right 6x3 wing panels missing on theirs? Razz

Are you absolutely sure you didn't miss a step. Perhaps is you dismantle it and rebuild it there will be fewer spares.

That's barely 50 extra pieces. On a $500 set, that much extra sounds very reasonable. The Falcon has, what, five thousand pieces. It's less than 1%.

I may have missed a couple pieces, but if I could bypass that many wing parts, I'd ask you to please slap me silly.

That's actually 94 parts, including the parts that would be extra on a regular set, and that many large and unusual parts isn't excusable even on a set this size.

Yeah ... i dont think i had that many angled pannels left over ... maybe you should check your falcon and the giant book it comes with. or maybe it was a factory mistake giving you too many, i find thats happening more and more these days (i got 3 extra windows from the new batmobile)

I remember when the set first came out, there were alot of reports of the amount of extra pieces being rather high. But still nothing wrong with this, extra parts are always nice.

Are you upset about this? I'm not understanding the tone of your question, maybe. It seems like you're unhappy, but it's free stuff.

If it really bothered you, I'm sure you could ship them back to LEGO and they'd be happy to resell them.

I doubt any company would re-sell anything like that.

Because.......?

Companies resell returned items all the time, sometimes after refurbishment. Reselling LEGO has zero risk. I can't imagine why you would doubt that.

I had the usual supply of spare small bits (scaled up for a set that size) but am missing one piece - a 2x2 tall block with the nobs on the sides - to complete the scanner dish. I have to get around to contacting Lego about that.

Other than the usual extra 1x1 dots, my USC Falcon had extras of the little wings as well, I think 14 right and 14 left. Nice little bonus to a great set.

Looks like you got an extra bag, or made some serious construction mistakes?

Excusable? Somebody explain to me how the LEGO group has no right to include extra pieces. Missing pieces would be a different story, but extra? How can giving more than you need be wrong?

That is also a very likely reason.

I have to side with Bounty hunter on this one. Sure, extra pieces are nice but the thing is unless you find out from someone else that you aren't the only one with those extra pieces, you will never know if you fully completed the set and that would make me pretty pissed. (and with 5,000+ pieces, you're sure to miss something) Wink

Well it turned out my instruction manual was missing said pages.
And I was only 8. And I don't keep my boxes so I had no real idea what the set looked like.

Assuming you're a SW fan, how can you not know what the Millenium Falcon looks like? Although in your defense, you were 8... Razz

I think he meant he didn't know how exactly the set was constructed.
