UCS MILLENIUM FALCON ( RUMOURS)

Postby chill » Wed Aug 02, 2017 8:07 am

For us fans of LEGO. we all know the UCS Millennium Falcon is the Holy Grail of all kits. When released way back it was then the biggest set ever made and was Mini-fig scale. This kits now sell for minimum £1500 on ebay ( or even less for the copy cat kits). And the feature of many a collectors dream

Well the wait is over ( allegedly) over on the LEGO Facebook page, a teaser has been put up of a huge box covered in paper next to the recently released London Bus. Obviously the rumour mill has gone wild.

The facts are..

Over on very respected lego review sites (brick link) has listed a set number for a UCS Falcon.
Clues are there already of a new UCS Falcon, with images of it on new release kits , such as on the new Death Star kit . Go look its there in the bottom left corner on the box art.

Also less than a month to Force Friday. Also its 40 years this year since Star Wars been released.

Rumours.

Its the biggest kit ever at between 6000-8000 pieces. Has both the round and rectangle radar dish included,with double figures Mini-figs included.

On the Lego site magnified images of the box do show some very familiar curves of the Falcon control room...

Now just need to brace yourself for the cost!!!

loving the BB-8 :)
measured my large Lego cabinet last night and it fits perfectly :think:
Just need to go busking with my pet dog Roxy to get the funds :roll: :lol:
It looks amazing, so hope i can get this one. I did ask the wife for one of her Kidneys :) but she swiftly told me to x@x@...x@@xx :laughing-rolling:
Not impressed by the mini-figs apart from Han and Princess Leia, more exclusive figures would have been better imo.
The interior is a little sparse and could have been a lot better but that said its still an amazing set and I JUST HAVE TO HAVE IT :mrgreen:

I read on a Lego collectors page that if you purchase the falcon you get a black VIP card that's gives money off the Star Wars sets

Disappointing start for VIP members not able to buy the set, why didn't they have a one set policy so everyone had a fair chance to purchase it.
Still Lego said it would be available again soon and would be stocked for some time to come so how many of these sets will be sold remains to be seen :think:
I also noticed some people were complaining about the suitcase wheels glued to the falcon box instead of an outer box, do you have to have them or is this an option.
Set looks really nice but after watching some builds its a little over priced in my opinion and looks a bit cluttered with the extra elements thrown all over it to up the brick total and inflate the price tag. All that said its still on my want list :mrgreen:

Check out brick vault and their adventures with their set. The wheeels on the box fell off...

I think it looks awesome. but there is stickers!!! Surely a UCS set should have NO Stickers.
