Lego fans are excited. Star Wars fans are in awe. Fans of both are scrambling to find the $800 bucks it will cost to buy the new Lego Millennium Falcon. The kit, the single largest set ever sold by Lego, will have 7,541 pieces. And the attention to detail from Lego will allow die-hards to build exacting copies of their favorite version of the Falcon.

While the fictional ship may have made the Kessel run in 12 parsecs, it will likely take longer to assemble the massive Ultimate Collectors Series Millennium Falcon.
While most Lego Star Wars creations are fair representations meant for kids to build and tear-down and build again, this one is incredibly detailed. Even the interior is meant to be as real as possible.That’s a change from other versions of the Falcon. The last one that was this size had only 5,000 pieces, so this one is a serious step up.
It also comes with 10 minifigures. The classic trilogy fans will have Han Solo, C-3PO, Chewie, and Leia. Force Awakens fans can use Finn, Rey, and Porgs. There’s a BB8, and a mynoc. What are Porgs? These things.
We’re not sure either, really.
The most detailed piece happens to be the heads of Empire Strikes Back era Leia and Han, which can be turned to show respirators. This is a nice detail for those who want to build their $800 Falcons into the mouths of even bigger space worms.
For those who might balk at the price, consider this; these are a good investment. The original Collector Series Falcons sell from $2,000 to $3,000.
But who would want to sell this? This would be the centerpiece of any collection.
