The Lego Star Wars set you can’t smuggle: The new Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon

01 September 2017 | Lord Tan

Not that you should be smuggling anything, but LEGO’s just-announced Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon is huge. It’s made up over 7541 Lego pieces and will be 33 inches long, 22 inches wide, and 8 inches tall when completed. Oh, and it’s also the most expensive LEGO set ever made.

In fact, it’s so large that LEGO won’t give you a plastic bag to carry it out the shop, you’ll get a cardboard box with cute little yellow wheels to cart it –just look at it!

The LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon will feature a lot of intricate details that emulates all the features of the space ship we see on the screens, including its interior! (Which explains the high-piece count.)

Long-time fans and collectors of Star Wars will also appreciate the little details that LEGO has made, such as including a different radar-dish on the top of the Falcon to either replicate the original Star Wars trilogy version or the more recent Force Awakens version. Also included are 10 minifigures to pilot the ship with –either the crew in the original trilogy (Han Solo, Leia, Chewbacca, and C-3PO) or the recent Force Awakens crew (Old Han Solo, Finn, Rey, and BB-8).

But of course, a set of such massive size and piece-count isn’t going to come cheap. The new LEGO Millennium Falcon will come in at 799 USD, which roughly translates to about RM3412. Big whoop right there. It’s truly a set for the Force-believers and budding Brickmasters.

You don’t have to pay that much for a great LEGO Star Wars set though. If you wanna get something more affordable for yourself or for your child, you can check out our personal favourites, the Empire’s iconic Imperial Star Destroyer and Tie Fighter in brick-form.

Or just take a look at the other LEGO Star Wars sets:

The brand-new LEGO Millennium Falcon will be released under LEGO’s Ultimate Collector Series (UCS), a series that’s more complex and detailed compared to the regular Lego sets. Because of the nature of UCS sets, its aimed towards the older builders. A previous Ultimate Collector Series Falcon was also produced before in 2007; made up of only 5195 pieces, in comparison to the upcoming set’s 7541 pieces.

LEGO also has other different themes, such as their own LEGO Technic theme which has more technical parts such as working suspensions...

... and their LEGO Marvel Super Hero theme, with everyone's favourite super heroes in minifigure forms!
