LEGO has been teasing and hinting for months that it would release a new Millennium Falcon set in time for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie, but we never expected it to be the biggest LEGO set of all time.
Coming in at a whopping 7,541 pieces, the Star Wars Ultimate Millennium Falcon smash the previous champion, the LEGO Taj Mahal that had 5,922 pieces. The set is so large, that LEGO teased you might need a wheeled cart to get it out of the store and into your car – that is if you have enough room in your car for this massive LEGO set.
With the average LEGO brick price at 10-cents (plus or minus 2-cents), the LEGO Ultimate Millennium Falcon is hitting your pocket book for a $799.99 – which I believe also makes it the most expensive LEGO set ever sold.
So what do you get for your money? Here is the complete solicitation text:
75192 Millennium Falcon™
Ages 16+. 7,541 pieces.
US $799.99 – CA $899.99 – DE 799.99€ – UK £649.99 – DK 6999.00 DKK

This thing is massive, and though I have cut back on my LEGO purchases and have almost stopped buying LEGO Star Wars completely, I think I’ll ask Santa Clause to put in a good word with the Tooth Fairy to see if I can find the funds for this set when it arrives on September 14, 2017 for LEGO Members and October 1 for the rest of the world.
