Buckle up, collectors, because LEGO is giving you another chance to build film’s most iconic spaceship from scratch. And this time they mean serious business. Hosting just over 7500 pieces and a meticulous attention to detail, the LEGO Ultimate Collector’s Edition Millennium Falcon is arguably the most epic LEGO set to date and apparently the biggest. Expect guaranteed hours of entertainment no matter what your age. Or, to quote Yoda: “just for kids this is not”.
LEGO went to remarkable lengths to bring Han Solo’s famous Corellian ship to life. Specifically, that meant loading the gigantic model with awesome features like a sensor dish, landing legs, lower quad laser cannons and a lowering board ramp.
Inside the main hub is room for up to four Star Wars mini-figures and nifty components like a Derjarik holographic game and an engineering station with turning seat. Elsewhere inside the massive ship is a rear compartment, a hidden floor compartment, two escape pod hatches and a detachable panel with a fully rotating quad laser cannon. Put simply, LEGO left no detail behind.
A hobbyist’s dream come true, the LEGO Ultimate Collector’s Edition Millennium Falcon will land in stores October 1, 2017 at a price of $800. Given how last year’s edition now goes for over 4.5K on Amazon, we imagine the new one will sell out at the speed of light. In other words, get one before it’s gone to a galaxy far, far away.
