A third teaser for a BIG set!

Posted by ,

LEGO has published a short video teasing the announcement of a new Star Wars set on Facebook. The caption states that this will be the largest LEGO Star Wars set ever released, exceeding the 5197-piece record currently held by 10179 Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon.

Watching the video in full screen on Facebook confirms that this set will be exactly what many of us have been expecting. You can view a particularly interesting frame taken from the teaser video after the break...

The title 'MF - UCS MF 15 sec HERO Teaser video' puts it beyond doubt that this will indeed be the UCS Millennium Falcon we have been anticipating. You can also see BB-8 flashing across the screen, suggesting that the set will include a selection of minifigures from the Sequel Trilogy as well as the rectangular rectenna.

Update: The title of the video has now been changed. Presumably the original title was intended as a placeholder but was not removed in error.

10th January 2017! (Sloppy work from the Danish company)

But I'm happy I saw a BB8 floating in the video!

I would say that is the planet Hoth with it's asteroid belt so it goes down to two sets: AT-AT or Millennium Falcon in UCS, thought the chips are leaning to the Falcon as the assembly takes place in space.

By in United States,

It would be nice to see images soon because between this and wanting multiples of Ninjago City and Old Fishing Store some decisions are going to need to be made. The fact that it is Star Wars in and of itself doesn't interest me necessarily but if it is the biggest wide release set piece wise I can get on board.

@Rizulli -- too late; the cat's out of the bag.

Although I was hoping on the slim chance it would have been a Bespin set, I am still thrilled to get an updated UCS MF for less then $5000.00.

I really hope they will make a UCS Bespin for the 40th anniversary of TESB.

Gravatar
By in Australia,

While it's now a foregone conclusion that it is a new UCS Falcon, I'm surprised that they could be so careless about video file names while still attempting to maintain a tease factor.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Good for those who wanted a new falcon. Good for me since I can avoid spending the $600-$800 on this set. Always nice when Lego saves my wallet by continuing with the remakes.

With all the remakes. In 2017 I will probably end up purchasing less sets in any year since 2009.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

How disappointing that they will include features and characters from Disney's attempt at Star Wars. I would hope, at the very least, that a set like this will incorporate multiple eras, perhaps even the labels from Episode III. Then I could sell the TFA stuff online. Or melt them, either way.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Hope it comes with selection of both original trilogy minifigs and sequel Trilogy minifigs; as well as the ability to have either round or rectangular dish.

I don't currently have my 10179 on display guess I should get the built in preparation for the comparison.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@ateague Why do you think it's a creator set? They've already said its Star Wars!!!

They say the largest Star Wars set but not largest set overall so it doesn't look like it's going to exceed 10189 Taj Mahal on piece count. I could be wrong and I hope I am!!! If it has a detailed interior I'll wet myself with excitement!!!

I really hope it comes with premium packaging like 42056 and also numbered bags, sifting through 5,000 or more pieces wouldn't be fun. I'm hoping to pick up Ninjago city tomorrow then I'll have to put some overtime in to afford this beast in October or possibly September if they do VIP early access.

Re the title of the video, great to see Lego employees are also not immune to classic corporate blunders.

Can imagine the Lego employee excitedly uploading it to Facebook, then a few minutes later looking it at with one of their colleagues where the error is noted, followed by lots and lots of swearing

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Hope the Lego site can handle the traffic for all the 1st day purchases. We all know how great their site is when it comes to promotions and handling of traffic.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Yeah, I dunno. I think if it has an interior and is like my childhood toy, then yes. And that'll be it for me...

Gravatar
By in United States,

Obviously a Creator set!!! They used Creator sets to tease this one so that obviously confirms it's a Creator set!!! Doesn't matter that there have been rumors, hints, an MF cockpit behind the paper, and now this video which was literally titled 'UCS MF', it's obviously not a Star Wars set!!!!

*sarcasm*

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@shaase, it will also be interesting to see how well prepared they are for sales and their thoughts on the number of sets that will be purchased.

They have done an appallingly amateur and bad job re Saturn V,and given its pricing, interest it could have been relatively straight forward to plan for.

On the other the hand the new UCS MF is a tough one to plan supply, yes people are talking about it and it appears very popular, but given how incredibly expensive it will be (i.e. selling a kidney to pay for it), how many people will actually be able to afford it ?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'll have to wait and see what this truly looks like before I really get interested or not. I'm less likely to get it if it's base on TFA and/or TLJ. More likely if the OT. If there is no interior (like last time), I'm very unlikely to want it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I never got the original UCS Falcon, so I'm excited by this. My birthday is in October. Christmas is around the corner. I have gifts I've earned from work. So, this is going to be a day one purchase for me.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Concern: the old 6x6 webbed radar dish (the gun windows used on the top and bottom of 10179) can be see drifting beside BB-8. I can't imagine them using that part unless it was a similar scale.

I guess that's okay, IF it has an interior.

Gravatar
By in Indonesia,

Okay so I think I can safely say that this "BIG" set is going to be very close to be a new UCS Millenium Falcon at this point. I am not very sure though. This is going to be very cool if this IS going to be another UCS Millenium Falcon. I would also like to point out that because the previous teasers were kinda cryptic because it isn't 100% clear as to what set they are referencing.

I know some of you are indeed guessing that it was indeed a MF, but two comparisons of Lego Creators sets kinda tricked me into thinking that this was actually going to be a Creator set. It probably should have been compared to an moderately large Lego Star Wars set (like the U-Wing from Rogue One). That would have made the guesses for a Millennium Falcon so much easier in a way that words just can't describe.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I was going to spend my $100 in VIP points towards Ninjago City, now I think I will hold to those for a little while longer. Give us an interior this time, and I'll give you my money.

10.01.2017, darn I've missed the release date by 7 months

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The US format date almost certainly means it won't be available outside of that country. Oh well.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@mrdoofa: I hope the "largest SW set" doesn't mean that it won't beat the Taj. There's only 400ish pieces between the old MF and the Taj Mahal, so it would be real sneaky of them to squeeze this set in between the two.

I don't even care what it is at this point to be honest. Fingers crossed that it's not going to be the Death Star rerelease all over again.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^ This set will have at least 7500 pieces

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thank goodness... I can't justify spending this much on a MF set. Woo! I'll bet half the sales of this are people expecting it to go for 2-3x more on eBay after it's discontinued.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It appears that this is a great time to be a fan of Lego Star Wars, and this could be something very special. There will be a vocal minority that complain, but for me the fact that every set is not always 'my cup of tea' is healthy and reminds me that this is a not an exercise in ownership, or even an investment but a fun hobby to be enjoyed.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Pleased it's Star Wars but mainly for my wallet!! I don't collect or want these sets so I can sleep easy getting Ninjago City tomorrow and the Old Fishing Store in a couple of weeks and not having to fret about where that amount of money would come from... mind, we still don't know what the Winter Village set is and I'll DEFINITELY want that ha ha ;-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ha! "error" on the video name--riiiiight... just like having the paper on the first teaser be semi-transparent was an "error"... all this stuff is on purpose, of course. They -want- us to know what it is, they just don't want to be official about it.

Personally looking forward to this! I've never bought a huge set before but I'm ready. My wallet on the other hand...

Gravatar
By in United States,

@PMHLegoCity60134: It's clearly going to be a MF. I mean, 'UCS MF' as the video title is proof enough.
It was always clear it was going to be the MF, IMO, the two Creator sets didn't mean anything as those have simply been the largest sets released recently.

@Lamby750: Props to you, it's not everyday you see a LEGO fan who realizes that TLG doesn't revolve around them!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Does anybody recognise what the 2 red items are that fly by at about 8 seconds into the video?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I guess with BB-8 in the teaser it can't be a UCS Cloud City.

But TLG could surprise us all with a UCS Starkiller base.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Tyrell Archer you realize Disney only distributes the films, Lucasfilm is in control of the rest

Gravatar
By in United States,

Does anyone that has any of the UCS sets, remember if any of them were available on any platform for a decent discount? (Amazon, lego, target, walmart, etc...) I doubt I will be buying a Lego Set for $600+ Kid will have to miss out on college, wedding gift and a car at this rate :/

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So based on the screenshots of the parts floating areound, I may assume it is pretty much similar to 10179. Who agrees?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It'd be really funny now if the 'accidental' error was a double bluff and its not the Falcon...

By in Sweden,

It wasn't a technic modell of UCS mf...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

If anyone has a mint boxed 10179 I'll take it off your hands for $75 before the price collapses!

Gravatar
By in United States,

While it will be a Star Wars set, I think it is another bluff by Lego. I went back and looked at the MF cockpit location on the 10179 box and on the teaser box. To be the MF its image would have to be wrapped around the side of the box. Wild guess, but I think it could be an Imperial/First Order Star Destroyer.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^That issue is easily solved by the fact that it was probably the back of the box.

@Drew-2017 Lucasfilm no longer exists except as a subsidiary to Disney. It is separate from Disney in name only.

I think it's could be the ultimate BB8 or the ultimate Millennium falcon!!

At one point I saw the bit used for the middle of an a-wing... ucs version?

By in Canada,

And won't we all be disappointed when it turns out to be the StarKiller Base from Force Awakens - anyone floated that idea? Exploding lego orbiting a planet????

Gravatar
By in United States,

I don't see what's so hard about realizing the title of the video was 'MF - UCS MF 15 sec HERO Teaser video'. It's confirmed that it's Star Wars, so is there really ANY chance that it's not actually the Millennium Falcon? No, there really isn't.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Eeeh, STAR WARS, SHMAR WARS. I still believe it's the head of Frank Falcone in that big ol' box.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I can't understand anyone who is still denying that this is the Millennium Falcon... I'm seeing a few such people in the comment section on Facebook. Just before the video cuts out, you can see a docking ring at the bottom and what looks to be the cockpit on the right. Assuming one of the VIP early access sets on September 14 is the Falcon, there isn't much longer to wait!

Gravatar
By in United States,

UCS MF, must be a bust of Mace Windu. I hear he's a bad MF.

By in United States,

@Tyrell Archer Yes but the people at Lucasfilm are the same now as they were pre-Disney, it's properties are Disney properties but the team making the films is the same

Gravatar
By in United States,

@TyrellArcher, they'd be stupid to not at least reference the new movies and that version of the Falcon with this set. Despite what you think about the movies, it's brought new fans on board and further increased the popularity of this ship. The Falcon proper hasn't been in a movie in over 30 years. While it's iconic, there's honestly a lot of people that would be upset if it didn't include characters from TFA and future movies. It's disappointing if it doesn't reference TFA. You're not the only fan out there.

As to whether it's the Starkiller Base or not, I think that would be pretty foolish. The Death Star is iconic. It's been in 4 Star Wars movies in some form or another (if you count ROTS). Starkiller has so far only been in TFA, and let's be honest, isn't nearly as iconic as the Death Star. It wasn't in the movie nearly as much as the Death Star wars, and it was destroyed just as quick. It wouldn't be a very good set to make in general, let alone a huge Star Wars set. They'd make a huge new Death Star before they did StarKiller Base.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I am personally hoping that the MF stands for 'Mandalorian Folklore', as this is an aspect of the Star Wars universe that hasn't yet been enshrined in Lego. It would be much more unique than yet another Millennium Falcon.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The small structure built in the clip appears to be their new take on the Falcon's Cockpit. Looking good!

Gravatar
By in United States,

You guys need to give up on the StarKiller Base, Star Destroyer, etc. argument. The only Star Wars model that evokes the emotional response and attachment that will sell at a $600+ price is the Millennium Falcon. Don't give Lego more credit than they deserve by the "double bluff" argument. This is the same company whose web site can hardly keep up with the traffic when sets like this go on sale.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Wow @Tyrell Archer you seems to not like TFA, I accept that but melt the minifigures?! Seriously!

Gravatar
By in Malta,

For those wishing it was a star killer base, then they would lose a huge chunk of fans who only collect OT sets. I also think that it wouldn't make a very good set.
Anyway, can't wait til the 14th to put my order in!

Gravatar
By in Austria,

Maybe, with the hype of having a large box and thick booklet, doesn't necessary mean it's the largest Lego set (in terms of piece count) to date? Will see.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm sure there was a post on a forum today stating that this is the biggest Lego set ever. Happy days

Gravatar
By in Canada,

@Drew-2017 After Disney purchased Lucasfilm there were a lot of layoffs and people leaving. There are still some previous employees (Pablo Hidalgo, for one) but for the most part it's new. Besides, Kathleen Kennedy answers directly to Bob Iger. If he, as Disney head, doesn't like something or wants something, that's what happens.

@monkyby87 It doesn't surprise me that Disney will have LEGO use TFA for this model. I would have preferred that the largest LEGO set ever use the original classic Star Wars as inspiration, but Disney would rather use the opportunity to promote its own brand. I know that there are a lot of fans of TFA as well, but it's simply not a very good movie, and a terrible Star Wars movie. But, of course its fans deserve respect as much as the rest of us, even if the movie itself doesn't.

@Brick_Knight The writing was on the wall for the future of Star Wars when George Lucas allowed Disney to use his outline for Episodes VII, VIII, and IX, but they declined, saying they wanted to make a movie "for the fans" (TFA). The result was a movie that plagiarized Episode IV, used cardboard cutouts of characters with little to no development of their own, removed nearly all character development from the classic heroes, and rendered the struggles of our heroes from Episodes I - VI virtually pointless. It's not a story, it's a feature length toy commercial.

Sorry. All due respect to fans of TFA (I honestly do respect any and all Star Wars fans, no matter what their preferences), but I get really, really worked up about the very existence of this film. It's a slap in the face to Lucas and the story he has been telling for the last 40 years.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Lol. Lucas started something cool. But he is a flawed director.
The prequels, especially attack of the clones, shows that. I do like revenge of the sith though.

And The Force Awakens is better then a new hope. TFA is the best remake/reboot ever made. Yes, I grew up with the original ones and empire Strikes Back is still the best of them all.

Of, this Falcon will cost a lot of money. But the old fishing store and a tie fighter are on top of my list, lol.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Ah yeah, Kylo Ren had more character then Darth Vader untill the last part of ESB.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It's a bust of Jar Jar Binks. I think we can all agree about that.

Seriously, of course it's the Falcon!

Gravatar
By in Germany,

If you don't like TFA, just use the other antenna ;-). Provided, of course, you actually buy and build the set (as opposed to putting it in storage in a cold dark place, hoping that it will be worth ten times the RRP in ten years time).

I'm still hoping for a semi-affordable remake of either the Tantive IV or the Star Destroyer in 2018. If it is not intended as an investment, spending 700 Euro on a Lego set is, well, a lot of money ...

It's weird that I'm still a teenager in secondary education yet so ready to blow so much money I could be using to learn how to drive on this one Lego set...gah can't wait, as much as I like the original's design, it's outdated, it's why I didn't get the original Death Star, the minifigs look old/crude, they didn't have as much a choice in pieces as now, it's why I'm so excited for this, updated minifigs, an overall updated design to match Lego's updates over the years to improve their sets. Just compare the original tie fighter and x wing sets to the ones we have now, I'm excited to see what they do! (Also I'm happy I don't have to spend £2500 on the previous one, sorry weird people who buy sets not to build, but to invest in...basically ignoring their intended purpose)

Hoping with the piece count, alternate parts and minifigures will be included to do any version of it.

Actually expected the piece count to be larger based on the rumors

Am i the only one who was hoping that this set would be something in the Creator line? :(

I love star wars but find the colours all very similar and boring... if you wanted to make something else out of the pieces you'd be limited on what type of set you could build... to display it would be a great set but i dunno... i was hoping for a huge Creator set like a Buckingham Palace or a huge modular school or hospital! :)

Gotta to hand it to TLG to give us good teasers, the teasers so far had been top-notch in terms of generating excitement =P

It is the MF, no doubt about that for me, I cant see TLG putting in so much resources and charging such a high price for anything else.

While I probably won't(can't) buy it, I still do hope for a display stand that is of the same style as the UCS Snowspeeder (posing it dynamically), and if some other smaller builds and the rumoured interior could be added it would really elevate this model to be one of the best, if not the best, set of all time

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Hi very exciting news! Does anyone have any tips on best way to get the set on day of release?

Also, be nice to our parents, and finally call that girl, you know the one I'm talking about.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I won't be able to buy this, but I certainly anticipate its reveal!

Also slightly off-topic here but:
@Tyrell Archer: seeing as you're clearly a movie critic, which aspects of TFA make it "simply not a very good movie"? Script? Pacing? Cinematography? Score? Acting? Writing? Directing? Action? Special Effects? Because to me, all of those were good to excellent in TFA. Just because you didn't enjoy it doesn't make it a bad movie.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Will there be anything special with initial sets released? Seem to remember the original UCS Falcon came with a certificate, or something similar, for the first 500 or 1000 units?

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

So with that BB-8, radar dishes and other it's (almost) certain this will be a new Falcon. If it has an interior, some great figs and a reasonable price (not counting on that one), I'm stoked.

Still, I really would've liked to see a new Rebel Blockade Runner (Tantive IV) or Star Destroyer. It's the 40th anniversairy of Star Wars and those ships were the first we ever get to see on screen.

Also, wondering about the size. I'm sure it's gonna be huge, like the 10179, so displaying it is gonna be a b.....

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

Only a MF with an interior would make sense given the piece count compared to 10179. Else I believe it's some kind of star destroyer. I for one am waiting for a re-release of 10030

With all of the speculation and hopes of this being a new UCS MF, it'd make my year if the reveal was a 10,000 piece UCS bust of Darth Vader, with BB8 playing an integral part to the construction, and not a MF.

There's not much more I can add with such a blatant 'tease' now being shown to us - but my favourite comment out of the first 100 was "UCS MF - does that mean it's a bust of Mace Windu?" That had me in stitches.

What's with the American date format in the video? I assume it's just TLG acknowledging their biggest market. Plenty of interesting shards to spy in the video

By in United States,

I'd just like to say, the Millennium Falcon has appeared in normal scale in LEGO 5 times in 18 years. It's also the most iconic Star Wars ship and has appeared in (technically!) 5 Star Wars movies.

I really don't think it's that bad of a ratio, especially when you break it down. The first one appeared in 1999, the first year of LEGO Star Wars, the second one appeared in 2004, 5 years after the first one and made major improvements. The next one was the UCS MF, for Star Wars' 30th anniversary. Then, one came in 2011, 7 years after the last minifig scale one. The most recent one was then released in 2015 to coincide with TFA.

It really isn't that bad when you break it down.

The weight of the box is going to be 15 kg, according to Promobricks.

By in Canada,

@pagani88 The script was amateurish and unacceptably poor, considering the talent involved. Pacing I can't speak to, but the directing was far below what I expect from Abrams, and incomparably poor compared to Lucas' work. I was really surprised at the poor acting, especially from Harrison Ford, whose latest portrayal of Han Solo feels like he was playing himself playing Han Solo, as opposed to actually acting. The writing was a muddled mess. Where Lucas' movies are filled with repeated lines and moments that reverberate throughout the six episode saga with emotional connection, Abrams and Kasdan reuse plot points from the original cinematic classic, with the only conceivable purpose being to replace our memories of Episode IV (an impossible task, to be sure). Score was not exceptional; it simply did not feel like Williams' heart was in it. Action and special effects were fine, but not revolutionary; certainly nothing to set it above any other science fiction movie. It's very clear that the focus of this film was to hit on nostalgia for the original film in those that did not understand or appreciate Lucas' later work, instead of celebrating the ongoing legacy of Lucas' story. This would not have been the case had Disney used Lucas' story instead of making a movie, as they said, "for the fans".
