More information about something BIG!

Posted by ,

LEGO has posted another teaser on social media for the BIG set that's being unveiled next week.

This one reveals that it will contain 1,619 more parts than the current largest set, 10189 Taj Mahal: that's a whopping 7,541 pieces!

The price per piece of the last Star Wars UCS set, 75144 Snowspeeder, was 11c, or 10p, so allowing a bit for economies of scale, we can expect this one to retail at something around $600-700 or £600-700.

Meanwhile, LEGO has been posting out flyers suggesting that it'll be on display in brand stores on September 1st:

Are you getting excited?

Thanks to andromeda88 for the image.

Nearer $700 than $600 I would imagine.

The Tan leads me to believe that there will be a small location added. I'm thinking the hanger entry to the Millennium Falcon from Mos Eisley, or it will be something on Jakku. Or better yet, something that can be rebuilt as either one depending on what version you would want displayed.

Looking at the brick color selection of the new teaser, one might think that they are really building a Jar Jar statue out of 2x4 standard bricks :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@MCLegoboy I am pretty sure the tan bricks are supposed to represent the Taj Mahal and the other pile is the Falcon.

^^ That, or the tan pieces represent the interior...? We'll know next week :)

I was thinking the tan color was representing the Taj Mahal and the grey represents the new kit.

@shaggysanchez Taj Mahal was white.

We've all been mistaken about the content of the new Star Wars set... it's not the Millennium Falcon... it's Alderaan!

By in Denmark,

That's awesome!

I don't understand one thing: Taj Mahal 10189 is the largest set ever and the price was $300. The upcoming Star Wars set is about 1500 bricks bigger, then the price can't be around $600/700, right?

And Lepin engineers are starting to work hard to come with probably quite similar product very soon.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It would be amusing if it was literally a pile of grey and tan 2x4 bricks.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@KyloRen0806 The Taj Mahal was unlicensed, and released 9 years ago. It makes sense for a Creator set to have a very low PtP ratio, as they usually do especially when you get higher in the piece counts. Star Wars sets usually sit at around 10 C/PpP (Pence per Part, just to remove confusion on my 3 p's). Which would put it at $600-$750/800.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@davidzeman Lepin doesn't have any hard working engineers, they are thieves that steal others already existing ideas. Lepin won't be able to release this set until they can get their hands on a copy of the instructions.

I was going to make the UCS Alderaan joke, but someone beat me to it. :-P

In asking the rep at my local Lego store about the 9/1 reveal, he stated they would *not* have the set on display. It's a bummer, but it makes sense: they want everyone to empty their wallets on Last Jedi sets, not be reminded there's a $700 bomb dropping a month later.

Gravatar

Sadly no not excited as its Star Wars. So wish this was a Creator set. Come on Lego where is another Taj Mahal like build for those of us that were not into Lego at the time.

By in Denmark,

@FreewheelBricks Awww. I almost thought it would be cheap as 75098. Not this time. Thank you for your answer. I know that Star Wars is really expensive.. and the price of LEGO has changed over the years since. I just hope the new model will be impressive compared to the price.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

lets just hope they surprise us with a lower price of £500! Or not!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Taj Mahal doesn't look like it actually has very many different elements in it, either. There are more than a few instances of 100-200 copies of the same part. I imagine that brings the manufacturing cost down. Also, to a certain extent, they can probably just charge what they want to for the Falcon. We'll see how many people put their money where their mouth is, but the hype is certainly huge right now.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

So just under 2,500 more pieces than 10179. That can only be a detailed interior.

Never said this before but DAY. ONE. PURCHASE.

Gravatar
By in Puerto Rico,

Alderaan and not MF.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

$700 US, would put it probably 899.99 CAD...and here I was expecting and 999.99 price tag. Guess we'll find out next week for sure.

I'm happy to hear that with the 7500 pieces means its not just a rehash of 10179 (a la the Death Star).

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

If anything, the tan pile represents the number of pieces more in this set compared to the grey pile, the parts in the Taj Mahal.

Gravatar
By in Russian Federation,

Largest Disney princess set ever. Yay

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^^^ agreed! And as Legojeroen suggested, hopefully the tan color is another teaser re the interior.

Really glad we got another teaser today - I was lowering my hopes in case last week's was the last one till the final reveal.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The inside of the millennium falcon has a lot of tan... hm

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I agree if it's £500 over I'm not buying it but I'll see!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

My guess is that this set will cost around $700, which would put it at about 8.0c PP, slightly lower than the average price of UCS sets.

Gravatar
By in Serbia,

I know what's this - the set that I'll always want, but won't be able to get ever! :P

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

It may be wishful thinking, but i'm still hoping this thing could be £600. I know that would represent ridiculously good value for money for a Star Wars set, but £700 seems to be such a huge price tag irrespective of the number of pieces. Of course, the other argument is that if Lego is expecting this to hang around for as long as the original Death Star, they may want to future-proof the pricing a bit. In the past some of the bigger sets in the UK have been priced more favorably than small sets when compared to the US, so I'm also hoping this will work in our favor.

Also... anyone know about the UK Force Friday offers? I called a store today and they said they wouldn't know till this Friday.

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

it will be Apollo Rocket scale Moon.

By in United States,

Just throwing out ideas but the Tan Bricks might represent the Falcon's Interior. It's most likely not their intent, though.

this is kind of a bummer $600!? that is a lot!!! of money!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@ LuvKernow $799 plus sales tax in Florida. So that would be £746 here once you've added on sales tax (VAT). Not that you can make direct comparisons. Elsewhere I've read it it's £645. I hope that's right as I'd been thinking absolute best case £600, absolute worst case £750.

@TheMikeAwakens ...Ummm...The box will surely show off the completed model right?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@brainslugged, given this country's propensity for price gouging, I'm predicting £649.99...

Gravatar
By in Canada,

^^@LukeSkywalker, If your current phone works alright, go with the Falcon. :P

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

@LukeSkywalker: your new iPhone 8 will be outdated and crap in three years. The new MF will either suck from the moment of revealing it, or rule forever. Easy choice!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I've also heard from Lego Store employees that it appeared in their inventory system at $799. That seems more plausible if the rumors about the expanded minifigure lineup are true.

Gravatar
By in United States,

C'mon people. That is a pile of 2 x 4 bricks. The colors don't in any way represent the appearance of the actual set. As Huw as suggested, it's a way to visually indicate how many more pieces are in the set than the Taj Mahal.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

This is going to be an interesting dilemma for me. I am a young professional with no children - my lego is for me. Affording this set will not be an issue but justifying the price tag will be. Obviously the cost will reflect a fair price per brick but the comes a point (in my mind) when the cost is to great for one collection item. $700 USD (I'm in Canada so more like $1k) for one set may just be too much to spend on Lego. Will still be pining for my own and super excited to see all those who make the plunge :D

Gravatar
By in United States,

It'd be cool if they could pull of the set with the bricks featured in the picture haha

Gravatar
By in Singapore,

Hmm.... is it possible that it's actually a UCS AT-AT? I mean there are plenty of 'leaks' but if it's so many more parts than the Taj, for the MF seems a bit over kill. Arghhh..... hate the suspense!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@MCLegoboy

That would be really cool, especially if it could connect to the Mos Eisley Cantina set from a few years back!

By in United States,

@FreewheelBricks

Haha, yes, of course. Pictures and video are one thing. I meant seeing the completed set in real life. Part of the fun of building a set for me is seeing it all come together for the first time as I'm building it. Therefore, I always try to avoid displays of sets that I'm intending to buy.

Gravatar
By in Norway,

I have the money, but is it worth it?

Gravatar

At least 1 Sept date increases the likelihood that someone will snag a picture of this thing soon :-)

By in United States,

My guess is that there is a Millennium Falcon buried under that pile of bricks.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@TheMikeAwakens Makes sense! I decided to get the Destiny's Bounty from seeing it on the day in the Lego Store, there really is a difference between seeing it in photos and real life!

Gravatar
By in United States,

When was it confirmed that this would be the Millennium Falcon?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Cant justify a single £600 - 700 purchase on Lego. I've bought cheaper cars that ran with tax and MOT! Are Lego just milking the recent popularity bubble for all its worth?

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

As impressive as this may - or may not (*cough* Death Star *cough*) - turn out to be, the price is ludicrous, even in the "cheap" territories. As for us ... I'm expecting this to be around NZ $1500-$1700 by the time TLG's 25-50% regional surcharge has been added. Complete madness!

I think a return to the Dark Ages is called for....

Gravatar
By in United States,

tkatt... You beat me to it! First thing I thought of was the shape is looking like a pile of bricks over the falcon. Tan bricks are covering the front and the cockpit is to the right.

I'm guessing all those who mentioned a few years ago about the silhouette of the Falcon on the box of the newer Death Star are feeling pretty good.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^People's main complaint about the Death Star was that it was a re-release of the 2008 set. This has way too many more pieces to be just a slightly updated version of the 2007 Falcon.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just can't see where making something bigger and more expensive is a good thing for hobbyists. Am I missing something?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Since the Death Star went from $400 for v1 to $500 for v2, I was really hoping this set wouldn't go any higher than $600 since the first UCS MF was $500. Of course that was before we learned of the increased piece count. But making it $800 just feels like greed to me, and results in a set so large very few of us will even have a place to display it. I'd call this kind of a disappointment.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I think the shape of the pile of bricks is indeed a hint but if so, I think it is wishful thinking to believe it is a Falcon in disguise. The cockpit on the Falcon has a more refined and distinct shape than what is shown here. Looks more like a vehicle to me, a tank or so?

Have to laugh at the comments about the price. Many people were calling for a new UCS Falcon and if this is it, then why are suddenly so many people complaining? Or alternatively: where are all these people who were calling for it in the first place?

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

Hmmmm. An FN FAL or a big lego box ...

By in Bosnia And Herzegovina,

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The economics of this set is a valid issue, and I think the Lego Group is very interested in how sales of this puppy will do. A set >£500 seems insane as a child's gift, so is this the first of a new breed of AFOL "prestige" sets or an exercise in finding the upper bound of price credibility for the entire Lego range?

Stars Wars nostalgia/licensing may make this a bit of a special case but I, like others, am having an internal debate as to whether it is a justifiable purchase.

Hopefully the set will be spectacular enough to win me over as I do like big, highly realistic sets in favour of an abridged version and realise this means big money. I'll just have to pay with my eyes shut and never mention the cost again to a living soul, allowing me to revel in the glory of a super model with a clear-ish conscience!

Any chance it's the Planet Express Ship?

A stupid question - why does every one think it will be a MF? Has there been any sort of indication, except speculation and the sw anniversary? Just curious as there seems such certainty.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Cool, it's a Falcon AND a Death Star!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Hey All...if we all put in 10$ USD, we will be able to pick up one set and...share it...

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Yeah, definitely not for kids. Just big kids...
Given that Lego's typical conversion rate from USD to AUD is around 1.6 (e.g. the Death Star is AUD$800), if this set costs USD$700 that's easily over AUD$1100. USD$600 would be much better!

I'm still gonna buy it cos i'm crazy about Lego, but the pool of buyers will be significantly reduced if it's that much. I guess it comes down to the quality of the overall offering and whether it has anything unique other than being the largest set.
Premium packaging and exclusive content will likely make this fly out of the warehouse.
Australia Post are in for a shock - That box is gonna be massive!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Never mind the internal dilemma... What about the domestic row!!!! :-)

Secretely hoping it will be of Hoth quality so I don't have to worry about a purchase... Not really ;-)

Gravatar
By in Canada,

i agree that it might be the millenium falcon bit I AM SICK OF HEARING only THAT!!! Has anyone else besides me even thought that it might be the DEATH STAR from Rogue one??? Fans were so pissed off when the (new) Death Star turned out to be the same as the old one!!.

Gravatar
By in United States,

^There's a reason that people are saying the Millennium Falcon. And there is no way that it's a Death Star. Not only was one released just last year, but the designers wouldn't be able to know that people were disappointed with the DS from last year as a set of this magnitude would have been in production of a couple of years.

@Montyh7, rumors, hints from LEGO designers, and the fact that the video from last week was titled "UCS MF - 15 second teaser".

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

I wonder if TLG would have the DECENCY as NOT TO mark this as a product designed for children.. no-one in his right mind would purchase something that large for a kid 7-14 yrs old (of course some exceptions always are)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

If you look at the pile of bricks it does sort of resemble the shape of the falcon, I'm super hyped for this one. For the price it's likely to be I'd hope it would have premium packaging and no stickers!!! I'm hoping for a detailed interior too.
I see many people don't like to see a set on display before they've built it, I'm the opposite, when I see a set displayed in a Lego store it just makes me even more excited to build it!!!
I'd like to see them make an updated Imperial Star Destroyer as their are many improvements that could be made over the 2002 version like getting rid of the magnets which I always saw as a bit of a cheat and illegal building technique.
Anyway, can't wait for September 1st to feast my eyes on this and then it'll be time to punish the credit card!!!

@crayxmp I expect the age on the box to be 16+ like many creator expert sets are.

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

There could be contents - who is going to hold the World Record for putting that from the scratch together.. :) .. any ideas? like 3 to 7 hrs?

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

I also believe it would be Star Wars theme - which makes sense, huge community, proved to be admired both by adults, collectors, investors and appreciated by children of any age. But .. i just cant help myself, that it is too obvious that ppl would INSTANTLY EXPECT this to be a new UCS Falcon. .. TLG would most likely be aware of these thinking processes that run in people's mind.. so why trying to be so mysteriously mysterious - when, once in the open, anyone could just put a finger on them saying: was that really worth making fool of us all the time?

couldnt it be really some other thing from SW universe? Given the newly released number of pieces, could it be e.g. - just a plain thought - be something like a lifelike figure of C3P0 or something? Would the number of pieces suffice or its absolutely insufficent piece of count?

Gravatar
By in Italy,

Kind of weird that the 'comparison shots' disappeared for a week but then came back with a vengeance - now we have comparisons on box size, instruction size, and number of bricks (albeit genericised) it's only a matter of time before we get that sticker sheet comparison! I don't actually mind stickers, but what I do mind are stickers that flake and peel off - so I hope that issue is totally eradicated.

Another expectation I'd have for a set with this many pieces is side printing on the legs of the minifigures - though this seems unlikely as we don't really see it outside CMFs.

I still can't believe so many people think it isn't the Millenium Falcon!

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

The Rancor:"

one of the reasons that led me to my previous post was: Why in the hell would Lego put into production the latest Millennium Falcon like 2 yrs ago? (i might be mistaken). why to waste the effort of the designers, production capabilities and others relevent costs - while at the same time you have to agree: to design 7500+ set is not a job for a single year.. simple not. You can produce a mock-up version after cca 6 months? (purely judging).. then im most cases you have to re-design it.. you have to also calculate the production costs, marketing costs.. IF THIS IS new MF, then it would have to be most likely worked on for cca 2 yrs. That is my naive view.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@ crazxmp The millennium falcon from 2 years ago is just a standard system or playset version. This new one is a UCS version which is a completely different Star Wars sub theme, there can be no real doubt that it's not the falcon. We know for a fact that it's Star Wars because Lego have already announced that, the 15 second teaser video from last week, the shape of the pile of bricks this week, the pictures of the white wrapped up box a couple of weeks ago all points to the falcon.
Lego know there is a huge demand for a new UCS falcon especially when you look at the ludicrous prices 10179 sells for these days, by far the most popular set Lepin sell is undoubtedly the cloned version of 10179.
Also, according to unconfirmed reports I've seen on Facebook an American Lego store have said it's the falcon and also revealed its eye watering price.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It is the UCS Millenium Falcon. I knew it was going to be bigger than the last one, but I didn't know it would be this big!

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm surprised there haven't been more comments about the fact that this definitely isn't a remake, as that had been a pretty big worry that it would go the path of the Death Star.

Gravatar
By in United States,

What a fortune I'll save if it's a Star Wars set. Pity, but there it is. I do wish they'd just reveal it already as the teasers are becoming a bit irritating.

By in United States,

It will be a Dragonstone set, with all three, um, 2 dragons...

Gravatar
By in Australia,

I seriously doubt the set itself will be on display at Lego Stores on September 1st. All the flyer says is to visit a store to find out what it is. That could be just a poster like the banners on the front page of shop.lego.com. I think it'll be a while before they can spare any to have them on display in stores.

By in South Africa,

I cant wait for this, the month I buy this I will have to resign myself to dry bread and butter as there won't be money for much else

Gravatar
By in Australia,

Even if this isn't the "Aloominum Falcon", its size means that anyone buying it will have to make some serious choices about where they can build it and where they can display it. The limit to a Lego collection isn't just money, it's also real estate.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Why are people taking about the problems of storing it? Don't you build it, take a photo, then break it down and add it to your posts collection? I don't have any set built for more than a week or so. All LEGO sets are parts packs otherwise you might as well just buy a model of the thing.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

The two different color piles are just there to explain the difference in piece amount between probably the Taj Mahal and the new UCS MF. The color tan doesn't stand for the interior. Otherwise the rest of the model would be DBG? Star Wars sets always have a minimal 75% LBG color scheme.

But I would love building this set. I sold all my UCS SW sets over the last few years. I owned all of them from the first one (7181) to the Sandcrawler. Sometimes I do regret it, because it were about 21 great models. But now I own a beautiful series of Modular Buildings which are also awesome.

But this new UCS MF set is gonna land at my home real soon!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

A bit late to the party but has anyone thought of the reality of trying to display , carry or "play" with something with 7500 pieces in? Surely its too heavy for general movement. Its a build in situ (Situ being a recently re-enforced cabinet or shelf. And can you imagine if it was a set with no numbered bags.... a whole room floor full of parts to find the first 1x2 plate. Also Does this really mean people are saying I wont now buy £700 worth of small Star Wars or other sets but I will buy this one. So no advantage for Lego ?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I think there's a good chance they'll be doing something to acknowledge the 40 years since the release of A New Hope. The opening scene immediately springs to mind with an Imperial Star Destroyer pursuing Princess Leia's Tantive IV. Two ships in one large box would account for the huge piece count and of course huge price.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@ crazxmp: People say that it's the MF because many people KNOW that it's the MF. Yes, not assume but KNOW. In this day and age, it is virtually impossible to keep something of this magnitude a secret. Of the fan sites I regularly read, Brickset is the only one that does not call it the Millennium Falcon and still refers to "something BIG" instead, and I applaud that because there hasn't been any official confirmation yet from LEGO, so I find it somewhat disrespectful to let the cat out of the bag before they do. And I for one would wish that it was something different because there would be about a 1000 things more exciting than just another MF, but you would really have to have kept your head buried very deeply in the sand not to have gathered by now that it is indeed just that.
If there's one thing I've learned in this hobby, it's that EVERYTHING is leaked beforehand, and that the so-called rumors are always true. Not long now until we see pictures ...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Reading the last comment saddens me in a way, as I really did hope that it was something other than just another MF. Loads of Star Wars sets are crying out for the UCS treatment. A better Imperial Star Destroyer, AT-AT Walker and Mos Eisley Cantina are just 3 examples that spring to mind. Also, I can't believe Lego would put the letters MF in the video teaser caption; surely this is too obvious?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I'm getting really confused by some people complaining about a rerelease of a UCS MF, despite this one, with the massively updated piece count, being a completely (At least for the most part) set. Yes, lots of other Star Wars vehicles/Locations want the UCS treatment, but very few would require a piece count of this magnitude. Despite how much an ATAT UCS would be loved, LEGO knows that a MF would be the only ship, spanning throughout the original and sequel trilogies, not just appearing in one or two movies, worthy of the piece count and price, they know nowhere near as many people would get an ATAT when compared to the MF.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Ahhh, I would SO buy the Classic Crate to build mountains and deserts...

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Also, @DarthLegolas, they genuinely did put UCS MF in the filename (not the caption), and it was hurriedly changed after people started noticing and discussing it.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I don't believe that a new UCS Falcon would and even could have a detailed interior. Of course there are MOCs out there that have one, but LEGO must meet high standards in stability. The ship must be able to stand on its landing gear and be moved around safely, which means maaaany technic parts inside.

Building 10179 was a nightmare of technic parts that filled the whole Falcon simply to keep the ship together. 5.000 parts weigh over 6 kg, 7.500 parts will weigh 9 to 10 kg. I cannot imagine that without a sturdy inner frame, even if I of course would love a Millenium Falcon with proper interior. Building that would be very interesting, given the curved corridors and irregularly shaped rooms.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Since when does a UCS Star Wars set have to span both original and sequel movies? I disagree with the previous comment concerning the AT-AT Walker. A 7500 piece count could easily be swallowed up making this set, if they did a proper job of it, and I for one would love to own it, more than a MF. As a display model, the UCS AT-AT Walker would blow anything else out of the water. Lego will surely make one of these one day, rather than repeat a set that has already been done. Sure, the Falcon is a superb ship and very popular, but it's been done. Lego should explore more projects that have not yet been done IMHO.

C'mon TLG, can you fire your interns someday to not post leak just one week before official announcement :P

By in Switzerland,

If that leaked pic isn't fake, level of detail is great and much improved to original one.

And slim chances for interior with such external details.

Gravatar
By in France,

It doesn't seem to be fake, the guy who posted it seem to have links with TLG according to his FB profile, and it's quite different from other fake leaks. Only weird thing are dimensions, which are the same as the previous Falcon, meaning it could be a fake. But I don't think so.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

A few months ago I'd have been over the moon with a simple reissue of the last Falcon. Now with all the build up and rumours, I'm going to be very disappointed for it to not have an interior. However, even with the incredible level of greebling shown, with an extra 2,400 pieces, there HAS to be an interior, right? That's more pieces than 7 out of 10 of the modular buildings.

And another exciting thing about that (potential) leak is the hint at a new UCS Star Destroyer.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just curious, if anyone has any of the prior UCS sets, how long does lego sell them before they are retired?

I almost got sucked into purchasing the Classic Bat Cave this week. I had to talk myself down, considering it wasn't a set on my radar to begin with. But at 25% off it was a tough call.
Now my 205 VIP dollars will go to cover the tax of my new MF. Some of the tax.

I do not know where people are getting these price ranges from 7,541*.11 cents US = $829.51 US. I'm thinking this set will be anywhere from $829.99-$849.99 US. I highly doubt we will see anything in the upper $600-lower $700 dollar range. I'm very excited for this set and will fork out whatever is asked. I just wish Lego would handle the launch like this...

1. Open a " pay in full" pre-order now.
2. Keep the pre-order open for 3 months promising to fill every paid in full set order.
3. Cancel pre-order and fill all orders up to that point.
4. Based on the orders and continued demand then decide how many more to make.

I would happily wait 3-4 months, having paid in full, for my set to be manufactured and shipped. I would be happy to know that it is coming and not having to worry about the secondary market if there is a shortage with no order option.

This is really how Lego should run this set. I do not think they are going to be able to meet demand on this one without a running pre-order.

I don't think the color of the black and tan bricks meant to hint anything about it's content. Wow I'm excited to see a 7000+ piece set!

Suddenly this looks a little similar to an iPhone launch. If someone could queue and pay for new iPhone that cost 7x more than the Chinese brand smartphones, it is because of it's brand, feature, and marketing strategy (creating hype is part of it). And I will certainly feel more satisfied carrying this big box out of a Lego shop. The glee will already worth the price.

When i am looking on that foto again and we are playing game it is SW set. When you look from behind two different colour of bricks and that shape evoke me R2D2 :)

I don't think the Reddit Pic (with the japanese text) is legit.
Couple of Things that seem Strange:

- The Engine Section seems more or less the same as 10179 - even the Grey Rigging is the same
I would think Lego would not use that same technique (and unique piece/color combination)
ten years later - also no Detail on the underside of the Engine curve (only the backside of plates)
Seems odd in light of the rest of the Details/Greebling on the Ships Hull ...
- If i am not mistaken the amount of Minifigures in the Text amounts to 16 - (Will that be Young Han/Old Han, Young Luke/Old Luke, etc. ?!?!) Na, I dont think there will be that many Minifigures
- The Piece-Count should be 7.541 - in the Picture its 7.500 - why should it be so inprecise ?
- The Cockpit Piece seems too short - if we assume its using the new IceTank-Piece from NinjagoMovie

Nicely Done - but i dont think its the real deal.

Just my 2 Cents ;-)

^^16 means ages 16+. Beyond that I'd agree with you, and looks good and is easily the most believable of all the "leaks" so far, but I'm not convinced it's the real thing.

By in United Kingdom,

I have the original UCS MF and it's already too big to be displayed anywhere and if there are 2000+ pieces in the new one I can't see how they could be incorporated without increasing the size even more (even allowing for an interior of sorts)

I'm actually really hoping it's NOT the MF but something else e.g. Cloud City. I can see me wanting a new MF but not being able to justify it since I have the original but a new Cloud City would be a definite day one purchase (well, day one when there's double VIP points anyway)

By in Netherlands,

700 dollars for this set is a good price, but as lego always **** over Europeans with their pricing, it's gonna be like 800-850 euro. Euro is worth more then the US dollar, but Lego doesn't seem to care about that... O well. Will most likely buy it anyway

@ schucostad: I have it on good authority that it's the real deal.

Also, it's Mandarine, not Japanese. ;)

OK so I've just seen the Japanese/Reddit image of the new set. If it's real then you can see where all those extra pieces went; and boy is it pretty. My poor wallet...

The price in shop doesnt reflect just the exchange rate - but also production costs. And I can imagine that the work labor in Mexico fab would be by far cheaper than the ones in Hungary or Kladno.

By in Netherlands,

Apparantly some LEGO shops knew about this set for about a year. This set is also a 40th anniversary Star Wars tribute from LEGO. Also it is a 'gift' for all the new LEGO Star Wars fans that didn't get the 2007 version of the Falcon. Price is about €800 according to dutch newspaper AD.

By in Turkey,

The reddit pic is also available on Facebook in some public groups. It looks quite real compared to all those fake ones since start of this year.

IMHO the only odd bit seems to be the bridge connection where it meets the cockpit. From the angle of the pic (rear right quarters) there are visible gaps compared to other panels on the MF. It's due to the angled connection for sure but there were quite effective solutions to that on some MoC's. Anyway just my two cents.
Eagerly waiting for the release date!

@GertD

This is lego's worst kept secret as rumors started way back but that was the problem- for years rumors were floating around so no one could distinguish what is usual set of mf ucs rumors and what is real. But everything made sense as way too many anniversaries this year but in April with that slide leakage from lego presentation everything was clear. Only missing was picture and now we have even that so we can just wait lego confirming what we already know and waiting for set to arrive in stores.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

^^ It is real. Strangely underwhelming to see it after all the hype. It really is just another Falcon, which is exactly what it looks like. Nothing special honestly and not that big a deal. But that was to be expected, I guess.
The only thing that could make it interesting IMO would be a detailed interior. But even then, I think I'd rather take the money and go on a nice vacation.

YAY! We did it! We can now put in $10 USD apiece and get 2 sets!!! Oh, the power of this forum! Good thing this set has got 7,500 plus pieces...cause after i buy and build it...i'm gonna have to live in it...

By in United Kingdom,

The old/new comparison picture is interesting and if the latter is genuine then it is certainly a big improvement. However, quite where all these extra 2000+ pieces are going is not obvious so I am still hopefully for some sort of interior.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Looking at the pictures floating around I doubt there will be an interior to this. It looks like the extra pieces are smaller tiles taking the place of larger plate pieces. Also the increase in price would be a normal price increase like we saw with the Death Star.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Also with a picture of a star destroyer in the background does it mean that there is a remake of the UCS star destroyer coming next year?

Gravatar
By in United States,

My guess would be a partial interior - think of the MF toy from your youth that fit action figures - which still allows for structural integrity.

That photo has so much detail that seems like TLG design. I doubt it's a fake.

I reckon it's going to be the crashed star destroyer on jakku, would explain the massive amount of grey bricks and tan bricks in the photo.

Just my two cents....
Currently, Lego have five UCS sets out that are NOT retired. Why would they release another set...? It doesn't make sense.
I may be pessimistic, but something to think about.
But, I would luv to get my hands on one!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Brizza_isBack Is that price definite? I expected £699 so £50 better than expected lol!!!

@Murray.the.cop This is definitely a Star Wars sets and only a UCS set would have this kind of piece count. You are right though, I don't think I've ever known them to have 5 UCS sets out at the same time before although I personally consider Assault on Hoth and the Death Star to be large playsets rather than UCS although Lego sell them as UCS. This will make it 6 UCS sets out now!!!

Gravatar
By in Czech Republic,

By Murray.the.cop:

ppl mentioned various reasons. Just a selection of a few:

a) its been 10 yrs since the air of previous UCS MF
b) its been 40 years since Star Wars first movie
c) there is probably no other "product line" that would justify the production costs for such a "set" than SW.. so if its not MF .. what else from SW universe it could be?

frankly Id love to see one day some "essay" or something like that from someone who bought the very 1st MF.. then the 2nd.. 3rd... 4th version.. 5th.. - and now he should buy this one? Its almost disguisting how frequently this iconic ship has served only the LOWEST merchandise purposes and goals of Lego.. THREE in 15 yrs span would be OK.. but this is the 6th?

Gravatar
By in United States,

As much as I'm hoping it will be something OTHER than the falcon, I'd say it probably is. I grew up with SW (born in 73), and honestly, really never held the falcon in very high regards. Yeah, it's a cool ship and it's a key part of the movies, but IMO it's really kind of "boring" from a design perspective. There are a LOT of other locations/scenes/vehicles from the SW universe than yet ANOTHER falcon that would make nice sets! SO BORING!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Crayxmp and Murray.the.cop: Forget any rumors about why it might be a Star Wars set, LEGO already CONFIRMED that it is a STAR WARS set on their Facebook page last week. Do we really need more confirmation than that?

By in United Kingdom,

Presuming a Falcon, anything over £500 and its just by definition insufficiently accessible, sensible or right. All too easy to scale up and add greebling, replace 2x2 plates with four 1x1 clips is no reason to charge so much for plastic parts, Lego or otherwise. That and unless one is on 50k+, mortgage-free with no kids or a Russia oligarch, how does one seriouly justify such a spend? UCS Snowspeeder, SatV and GT3 later, which was just about doable while avoiding the funny farm (and divorce), suggest TLG price it carefully, not to what I can afford, rather a price of prestige that avoids the impression of excess - TLG would still make a healthy profit. But sorry, over £500 for a non swooshable ornament even for my beloved Lego is simply insane.

Now Creator needs to make a new set to retake the largest set title from this MF. A 8000-piece landmark such as: Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, 1WTC, Burj Khalifa, Bank of China Tower, 2IFC, ICC, Petronas Towers, Taipei 101, etc.

At 600€-700€ this is pretty much Dead On Arrival. No parent will buy their kid a 700€ Lego (not a sane parent anyway) and the amount of collectors willing to WASTE so much money on a recreation of a set that already exists is very very small.

I wonder if this big set will not have problems with so many pieces and the price?, I've heard about the 2000451 online shopping and shipping and I wanted to know if anyone knows anything about the online purchase of both the 2000451 (Panama Canal Set) and this Big set

By in United Kingdom,

I also believe it to be another UCS millennium falcon which I’ve seen the image of an includes the original trilogy figs Luke Han, Leia, Obi Wan,R2 & 3P0 along with the TFA main good guy characters old Han, Rey, Finn, chewy and BB-8. The previous ucs falcon had one of the highest piece counts and as its being released on sept 1st it makes sense for it to be star wars as it force Friday aka their commercial bombardment day. Its a shame its not something new for a change like a large scale mos eisley, the buried inflictor star destroyer on Jakku, the profundity ship or Vaders Castle.

By in United States,

Agree with many of the comments above. $700 is too much for any Lego set or plastic toy. I won't even buy any set that is above $300.
