New LEGO Star Wars 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon unveiled as largest LEGO set ever [News]

The new 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon has been one of the worst-kept secrets in LEGO’s history, with numerous teasers and leaks over the past several months. However, while the set’s existence may not be a surprise, we finally have all of the official details straight from LEGO HQ. The new UCS Falcon will include 10 minifigs, and clocks in at a whopping 7,541 pieces, comparable to the massive 7,500-piece LEGO Falcon built by Swiss LEGO fan Hannes Tscharner. This makes the new Falcon the largest LEGO set ever released. The set will hit stores on October 1st for $799.99, and will be available early for VIP members beginning Sept. 14.

LEGO is sending The Brothers Brick an early copy of the set to review, so check back soon for our full review of this enormous new set.

Back in 2007, I attended BrickFest PDX in Portland, Oregon, where LEGO Master Builder Erik Varszegi unveiled the original 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon. The original UCS Falcon was built from 5,197 pieces. So, where do those extra 2,500 pieces go? First, the exterior is considerably more detailed, with a lot more tiles taking the place of plates, along with many more rounded pieces that weren’t available in 2007, including a new 4×4 quarter circle tile.

Second, confirming the speculation among LEGO Star Wars fans, the set also has several interior sections.

And finally, another reason the part count is higher is that several details can be swapped out to turn the Classic Trilogy Falcon into the Episode VII/Episode VIII Falcon, with a square sensor dish and different details on the front of the mandibles.

The designer video with set designer Hans and graphic designer Maddy showcases many of the set’s play features and design details, and is definitely worth a watch.

The box itself is, of course, the largest LEGO box ever produced, and is more of a cube than the typical flat rectangle.

In fact, the box is so large that one of the teaser images LEGO has released shows LEGO’s method for helping in-store buyers get the set home: affixing wheels and a handle to the box. (Shown here in comparison to a bagged 75159 Death Star)

Interior sections include the main hold, rear compartment (with escape pods), gunnery station, and cockpit.

The ramp raises and lowers, and a blaster cannon pops down as well.

As noted above, the set includes both the round and square sensor dishes.

Minifigs include young Han Solo and Leia Organa (in Hoth gear), C-3PO, old Han, Chewbacca, Rey, Finn, BB-8, a brick-built mynock, and brick-built porgs from Episode VIII. The Episode IV Han and Leia minifigs have double-sided heads, with breathing masks for exploring the interior of giant space slugs.

  1. Lucas

    Will the UCS Millennium Falcon be limited or available like any other ucs set for a couple years or more? Don’t want to have to rush to get one.

  2. Brian

    $800 is ridiculous. I get that it’s in line with the piece count, but it’s much more than I’d pay for a single set. I didn’t buy the last Falcon at $500, but I was prepared to spend that this time around. $300 more than that? No, that’s absurd.

  3. Johannes

    I wonder if it can be mounted to a wall somehow? I think that’s the only way it would fit in my apartment :)

  4. Zhara

    disappointed it was another SW set! Just how many releases of the MF do we really need? And the price tag!!

  5. Seth Schmidt

    The LEGO set with the most pieces is still the 10189 Taj Mahal at 5,922, making this set the second largest LEGO set ever, but I have to admit it has the highest price of any LEGO set ever though. ($800?!?!?!?)

  6. Alfred Robertson

    i beg to differ Seth Schmidt – this one has 7541 pieces so is the largest one – this set has 1,619 more pieces than the taj mahal !!!!!!

  7. Brian H.

    Isn’t every Lego set limited? Define limited… Like only 10,000 made?

    The sheer magnitude of this set is actually great. It can pave the way for even larger retail sets. I’m not interested in the daily Lego sets at Target or Walmart. I want designer sets like this.

    Lego may be trying this price point as a test bed to see where the market is for high end sets is my thought.

  8. Steven H.

    The price isn’t justified in the piece count–it should at most be $749.99–but $699.99 would be more reasonable. It’s too much, I can’t see many being able to afford it, I certainly can’t. It’s too bad, because it’s a beauty–absolutely love the new canopy and entire cockpit look with the figures. With some added pieces around it, it might make a fantastic full-size Milano (which I can see them doing for the third film–one can hope).

    I’m not a SW fan, but if I were to get this, I’d love to see R2, Luke and Obi-Wan to recreate classic scenes (even if they spend so little time in the MF), at the price range, I can’t grasp why they didn’t included them too. And maybe one or two Storm Troopers. I mean, it’s got a good selection of minifigs, but we’re talking more than twice the cost of Ninjago City!

  9. Sam

    Lego know that a lot of people are buying big sets as an investment so it doesn’t matter how high the price tag is as they are never opened or built, just stored away to appreciate in value.

  10. Ken

    What’s with the life size Storm Trooper head in the background on the right? The first since the Darth Maul bust perhaps? :)

  11. Maverick

    Any idea how much the box would weight? I don’t live in a country that has a Lego store so would need a friend to buy it for me and ship it! The previous UCS MF 10179 was about 24.2 pounds, so considering this has approx. 50% more parts would it be 50% more heavy? Any confirmation on this would be greatly appreciated!

  12. Bucks73

    For anyone that’s complaining about the price, wait until the announce the Australian price where we get the “Lego Australia” mark up of 20-30%. And no, shipping is not justified because container ships come and go like every civilised country in the universe and nothing else gets marked up like Lego…

  13. T. Kyle

    Underwhelmed. Very, very expensive. And the images utterly fail to convince me I’d like to buy one for my son. Lego seems to have lost it’s way lately – Technic kits are very similar to earlier offerings and Lego doesn’t seem to feel the need to ascend to the next level. Just as well my son is 14 and passing beyond all this.

  14. Jason Bowden

    Im glad, Missed out on the 1st UCS set, Im not paying £3-4000 for a original. This is a better looking set and gives me a chance at owing it.

    I would buy it at £1000 GBP

    Looking forward to the build.

  15. Skids

    Escape Pods? Since these have never been seen in any SW Film, does this count as a spoiler for ep 8?

    Since the original UCS Falcon sells for thousands of dollars and a “brinklinked” set can sell for over $1,000, this price point makes sense for LEGO.

  16. Sean Berry

    Since the Apollo set is impossible to get at this point, hopefully they are able to produce enough bricks to produce more than 1 set a day (which seems to be the Apollo rate of production.) Sales are down, well, you’re most in demand sets are constantly out of stock while other sets are over produced…

  17. Maverick

    Lego sucks. No wonder their sales are down. I am a Lego VIP member so was able to place an order for this set first thing this morning only to be told just now that the order was cancelled as they cannot ship it to the address I gave. They could have easily asked for an alternative address and placed the order on hold but to cancel it is totally unacceptable. I’m pissed and if I am unable to end up buying one I’m going on a social media rampage.
