Merchandise: Millennium Falcon Lego Set

LEGO 75192 Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon

Lego has announced it's single largest set ever, a New Millennium Falcon for their Ultimate Collector’s Series line. Tipping the scales at 7,541 pieces, it measures eight inches high, thirty-three inches long, and twenty-two inches wide.  Of course, at a whopping US$800, it's also going to be the single most expansive Lego set on the market.  I don't think that the price tag is going to be an issue, though, because the finished product is glorious.  The Ultimate Collectors Series has a reputation for going above and beyond in terms of accuracy, but this version of the Millennnium Falcon takes the cake.  Here’s Lego designer Hans Burkhard Schlömer cradling the assembled model in his arms.” [More images: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7]

The set comes with ten minifigures: Han, C-3P0, Leia, Chewbacca, BB-8, Old Han, Finn, Rey, and two porgs, plus a Lego mynock.

The first deluxe Falcon set released in 2007 contained a measly 5,195 pieces, and remains one of the most sought-after sets in Lego history.  If this set is any indication, I suspect that if they release a second version of the Death Star, it'll be Lego's feature first four-figure price tag.

Hans and Maddy from the LEGO Star Wars design team go over all the features and components of the new 75192 Millennium Falcon set. The set contains 7,541 pieces and goes on sale October 1st, 2017. US $799.99 - CA $899.99 - DE 799.99€ - UK £649.99 - DK 6999.00 DKK
