[April fool] UCS Millennium Falcon confirmed?

Posted by ,

Rumours have surrounded the release of a new Ultimate Collector's Series Millennium Falcon for several months but its existence finally seems to have been confirmed today!

Czech member Dubna1 has sent us a screenshot of the LEGO Star Wars [email protected] page which shows the hitherto unknown 75192 Millennium Falcon. This was presumably revealed in error and now seems to have been taken down, leaving us with only this tiny image to pore over.

The set commands a price of 19999,00 Kc which will probably equate to around £599.99 or $699.99, making it the most expensive set ever produced. The piece count, minifigures and release date are not yet known but we will update you with more information as it emerges.

Are you excited for the set or would you have preferred to see a brand new vehicle represented at this scale? Let us know in the comments.

I immediately knew it was April Fool's day when I saw these articles. Good job at having me for a second! Two articles make it twice the fun!

Just another rerelease. Lego, Lego, Lego.
Happy April fools.

It looks quite convincing CapnRex101! ;)

Isn't this the second MF-related April Fools if I recall correctly?

For the record, Dubna1 translated is april1 (bonus points for that) ;-)

By in Netherlands,

you should have posted it tomorrow, because now everyone thinks it is not real.

Isn't the tradition that all jokes should be played before midday? Have you been fooled by Dubna1?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Double whammy this year I see.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It's not midday everywhere yet...

By in United States,

I did the math, and that set would cost 787.99 usd and 628.18 pounds.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Hahaha nice try.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Is this definitely an April fool's? If you think so what will you say or do if the MF does come out again soon - egg on face then.

This is really a cruel April Fools joke people, if it's such thing as a joke.

Gravatar
By in United States,

great april fools joke but i figured it out pretty soon, the image wouldnt become larger and there was no link. Good job!

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is getting out of hand! Now there are two of them!

(April fools articles, not falcons)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Good job on the photoshopping for this; it looks very real! How long before this becomes true, I wonder?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

See, this one is probably a slightly better prank, because it's somewhere within the realm of possibility. The GoT sets, OTOH?

Gravatar
By in United States,

LOL!

brilliant...i was hooked for a minute!

You can also have anything you like produced for a mere sum of 999.999.999,00 dk

Very cruel. Hopeful that Lego will release another UCS MF this year though. I'd pay £599+ for it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Man - I specifically came over too see if brickset had done any AF stuff and *still* got suckered for a sec. The cost ultimately triggered my brain to work again:)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Fully expecting some japes today, so not fooled for a second, but thought this one a bit mean... "I felt a disturbance in the force as if millions of AFOLs suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced."

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

I'm thinking if this is an April fools prank then UCS MF is not happening.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I hate this day

Gravatar
By in United States,

^I agree. Jokes are one thing, these aren't funny and most are lame. This one is spiteful so I don't mind it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

In my experience, most rumors turn out to be true. This has been speculated for a while now. Obviously this is a April Fool's joke, but there are signs that one will be released, possibly later this year. We will wait and see. I'm not calling anything, but it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

I'll add this to my 2017 UCS Cloud City's hangar.

Riiiiiight. =p

A better prank than the GoT by a long shot. Kudos.

I can't believe you'd do this to us. I took a look this morning specifically to see what the April Fool article was. Later on I saw the USC MF post and my initial reaction was "YES!!!!" followed a nano-second later by "oh crap" when I remembered the date. It's made worse because probably every day for the past couple of years I've wondered if today's the day that we get news of an updated USC MF. You'd better make this up to us by posting actual news of a new UCS MF later this year, Brickset :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

This is fantastic.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It looks just like the original. This can only be an April fool's day joke!?!???????

Gravatar
By in United States,

lol " DaJBomb00 " thats what i thought too

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Not real. If you zoom in on the cockpit you can see the old, lighter brown Chewbacca

Huw already made one April 1 joke...

Gravatar
By in Denmark,

Is this isn't an April Fool joke, I just hope the price will be lower than listed :O

Gravatar
By in Iceland,

well the rerelease will come for sure with two types of radar dishes: one for the old trilogy and one for TFA. The pic, however, is of the old Falcon so the news/pic is either fake or a preliminary image.

And no this is not an April Fool's Day message...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Dude I just took 700$ out of my bank account!!! I got mugged on the way out of the bank. Then found out from friend that this was all a prank!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Gravatar

Once it's past noon in California you should pull this kind of article down, the day is effectively over and most of the world is well and sick of the bad jokes by the time they get out of bed. Running multiple jokes isn't funnier, its annoying. Run one prank and be done with it. Honestly, as one of the more reputable LEGO sites, I would suggest not running any pranks at all, it does nothing to enhance the site. Considering the number of articles recently speculating on this particular model over the past two to three years this one was in particularly poor taste as there is legitimate reasons to believe that LEGO does intend to produce another version of it in the future, one reason given is the Death Star has been re-released. It also does not help that this day falls on a seasonal LEGO release day, and the release of upcoming sets information JUST happened regarding summer releases and a few planned later releases. Further, a lot of these announcements get leaked leading up to May the 4th. The timing makes it plausible, but tasteless. (BTW, I don't have any interest in this set, so don't bother accusing me of sour grapes, and I saw it after 4:30 PM CDT.)

We'll see who's laughing in the end when the actual UCS Falcon is re-released at the end of the year!!!
