LEGO’s New Millennium Falcon Will Be the Biggest & Most Expensive Ever
LEGO have just unveiled their new Star Wars collection ahead of the release of The Last Jedi this December, and the single largest LEGO set to ever be produced is part of the collection. Not only that, the 7,500 piece Ultimate Collectors Series Millennium Falcon will also be the single most expensive LEGO set to hit the shelves.
With 7,541 elements in total, Han Solo’s super-fast Corellian ship is crammed with the all the details and features any LEGO geek could wish for. Alongside intricate hull detailing, the new LEGO Millennium Falcon will feature a sensor dish, upper and lower quad laser cannons, 7 landing legs, a lowering boarding ramp and a hidden blaster cannon.
Though there was a Millennium Falcon released by LEGO back in 2007, it was 2,000 pieces smaller than the new version. It also didn’t come with Episode VII characters such as Finn and Rey. The new set also comes with Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO, Old Han, and two porg minifigures.
You can seat up to 4 of these minifigures in the cockpit, which incidentally comes with a detachable canopy. You can also remove the outer panels of the Falcon to reveal the highly detailed interior. The main hold has seating for the minifigures, a Dejarik holographic game, engineering station with a turning seat for a minifigure, and a doorway build with passageway decoration.
Other features include a hidden floor compartment, 2 escape pod hatches and an access ladder to the gunnery station seat, as well as a detachable hull panel with a fully rotating quad laser cannon. You can also swap the sensor dish to create either the classic or Episode VII/VIII version of the Millennium Falcon.
The LEGO Ultimate Collectors Series Millennium Falcon is available to buy on 1st October and will retails in the UK for £649.99. While that is pricey, bear in mind that the 2007 version was smaller and cheaper, and still currently sells for well over a grand on eBay.
