After leaks, rumours and teasers galore, LEGO has officially announced 75192 Millennium Falcon, and it’s a beauty. The last UCS set we got was 75144 Snowspeeder, which was exciting by itself, but this one – wow.
Not only is it the biggest and most detailed Millenium Falcon ever produced, it’s the biggest LEGO model ever sold, at a whopping 7,541 pieces. It’s not just the biggest, it’s the biggest by a long way – the well known but rarely seen Taj Mahal’s piece count is 5,922.
Some of the teasers we’ve had is:
- the box is almost five times bigger than 10258 London Bus
- the instruction manual is 2.5 times bigger than 10257 Carousel
- the larger piece count we’ve already mentioned – beating Taj Mahal by 1,619 pieces.
- and the fact that the box has it’s own set of wheels! I think this is the coolest thing…
The last time we had a Millennium Falcon was 2015’s 75105 version from The Force Awakens, and the last big one (UCS big) was 10 years ago in 2007, with 10179. By the looks of things, this version is much more polished, with a completely new cockpit design, more curves, and more studless surfaces, among others.
Ok, the details we want! This monster of a set will be available for purchase from October 1st, with VIP Early Access from September 14th. It will cost you US $799.99 / CA $899.99 / UK £649.99, and if you’re in Australia, it will be AUD $1299.99. Yes. You read that right. $1299.99. That’s big money, for a big set, in a big box! It must weigh a tonne!
If you just want to take a look, the set will be on display at LEGO Brand Retail Stores from tomorrow, September 1st, as part of the Star Wars Force Friday II promotions. If you see any UCS Millennium Falcons out in the wild, be sure to take a photo and send it through, so people know where to look.
Some of the amazing details include some serious external greebling, adding so much more character to this iconic vessel, as well as three interior details – the main hold, rear compartment, and gunnery station.
It’s not a lot of interior, but it means you can have both displayed – inside, and out. There’s even a little hidey-hole for Han and Leia to get some smooches in!
Not only this, but it’s possible to change out the sensor dishes and crew, so it’s up to you whether you go with classic Star Wars, or with Episode VII & VIII stars, Rey, Finn, BB-8, and older Han! A very clever option.
There is seriously so much in this set, it’s not funny. The minifigures are excellent, and include new redesigns of classic Han and Leia (with reversible heads so they’re wearing respirators), as well as new characters from Episode VIII – a couple of Porgs. I could keep writing forever!
This isn’t a sticker-free set, but the stickers look really good – there’s some hallway stickers which look excellent – they really look like they keep going! There’s also printed elements, with the best ones for the cockpit.
Just for a sense of scale, here’s one of the designers with the model. It’s a behemoth!
I could keep going, and point out more details, but you want to read the official stuff, so I’ll do that instead! Below is the official press release, more photos, and the official LEGO Designer Video.
