Force Friday II Giveaway!

Escape the Space Slug

©2016 LEGO Group

75192 Millennium Falcon contains 7541 pieces so is by far the largest rendition of the YT-1300 freighter released to date! The smallest contains just eight pieces and is found in 6176782 Escape the Space Slug, an exclusive set which has only been available on a couple of previous occasions.

However, LEGO has kindly provided us with a few copies of 6176782 Escape the Space Slug to be given away to Brickset readers over the Force Friday II weekend! Continue reading to find out how you can add this unique set to your collection...

Navigating an asteroid field and escaping the maw of a giant space slug requires incredible piloting skill and extensive knowledge of the Millennium Falcon. We are therefore going to select our winners by asking three questions which you will need to answer via email. The questions are as follows:

  • What speed does Han Solo claim that the Millennium Falcon can achieve when speaking with Luke in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope?
  • Five characters are shown piloting the Millennium Falcon during the Original Trilogy. Can you name any three of them?
  • From whom does Rey steal the Millennium Falcon when fleeing Jakku in Star Wars: The Force Awakens?


Please email your three answers to [email protected] and include your name or Brickset username in the message.

The winners will be chosen at random from among those who answered all three questions correctly and the contest will close at 23:59 BST on the 3rd of September so please submit your entries before then.

This contest is open worldwide and the winners will be notified via email next week.

Good luck!

Update: The contest is now closed. We will be contacting the lucky winners a little later in the week!

Thanks Brickset!

By in United Kingdom,

I have this set, so as much as I'd like a second copy I'll skip the competition, I hope whom ever gets them, appreciates their rarity and they don't end up on eBay within the hour of the delivery!

Good luck all!

For a second there I thought you were going to ask; my name, my quest and air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow.

So in the tone "He said they've already got one! "

Yes I have this already and though its not an overly exiting set you have to give respect to the scale of the falcon and done with only 6 pieces.

Good Luck to everyone.

Hmm... who is that 5th Falcon pilot? I'm not sure and will await the answer.

By in United States,

I do not really understand the first question

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ecmo47 I can't even think of the fourth unless they're including co-pilots.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Thank you for the competition!!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ra226 If they're including co-pilots, coming up with five is easy. But I was shaky even on coming up with the third pilot without rewatching Empire.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Sweet

Do copilots count for the second question?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

As much as I like free Lego, I'm not entering. It's far too easy to simply Google the answers.

Gravatar
By in United States,

"Five characters are shown piloting the Millennium Falcon during the Original Trilogy. Can you name any three of them?"

Obviously the intent of this question is clear, but just for the sake of amusement lest anyone actually try to get away with this... Technically the correct answer is "yes" or "no", since it's asking IF you can name them, not TO actually name them. Remove "Can you" and the question mark, and it's proper-er. ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Baby Yoda what does it matter? This isn't a serious competition, it's just a slightly more fun than just randomly picking a winner who likes a post or replies to something. It's not like you automatically win because you got it right, it's still randomly picked.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Surely one of those competition questions is opening up a whole can of sarlacc worms over whether Han ever claimed a speed given the units he referred to were distance rather than time?

(yes, I know what the question meant... but somebody had to say it didn't they!?)

Gravatar
By in Australia,

@Hanzo581 I suppose, but I just think it's kind of unfair to those who can actually answer these questions from prior knowledge.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Ian_S I think most people gravitate to that part of the movie because of its infamy. But that statement would be the time in which the Falcon completed a race. The speed of the Falcon is given in another unit entirely in another part of that conversation with Obi-Wan and Luke.

Gravatar
By in United States,

That's probably the one set that I'll just go "nah, not thanks" to.

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

I'm guessing that all the people discussing the answers are the same people who take delight in revealing a movie's plot twists and endings to someone who hasn't seen it yet.

So, just to be part of the team ... the Titanic sinks, Bruce Willis's character is a ghost, ET doesn't die, the Ultimate Answer is 42, and Darth Vader is *hurrk* *ackh* [invisible death-choke strikes again]

By in United States,

Awesome!

Hoth Bricks has a similar comp running at the moment for those who want to increase their odds.

Thanks for the chance to get hold of this set.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I sooo want this set

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Baby Yoda - It would be almost impossible to come up with a question for which the answer could not be found online, particularly since you have to ask something which can be answered based on the movies alone rather than any of the associated reference books which not everyone will own. I did consider attempting to make the questions more difficult though so just for fun here is one that I pondered using:

Which three tools would be required to fix a leaking motivator on the Millennium Falcon?

There are no prizes for answering that one correctly unfortunately but everyone is welcome to have a go in the comments!

Gravatar
By in New Zealand,

^ Tools don't come into it. Yer just can't get th' parts, mate. We need ter ship 'em in special, like. It'll cost yer....

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@CapnRex101 - I just googled "Which three tools would be required to fix a leaking motivator on the Millennium Falcon?"
Hit #1: http://www.imsdb.com/scripts/Star-Wars-The-Force-Awakens.html
Quick search for "motivator" and volla:

REY) It's the motivator! Grab me a Harris wrench -- check in there!
...
REY) Pilex driver, hurry!
...
REY) I need the bonding tape, hurry!

The power of Google! :)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ Testament to the difficulty of coming up with questions which cannot be answered by a Google search!

This one might be a bit trickier:

The Millennium Falcon underwent numerous mechanical alterations between the Original and Sequel Trilogies and two such changes are represented in 75192 Millennium Falcon. One is the addition of a rectangular rectenna but what is the other?

I am looking for the in-universe terminology here.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ I know that without the help of Google since I've been glued to all news relating to #75192 but I won't spoil it for anyone else! :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

^ In TLG's designer video for the new UCS Falcon, when they jokingly refer to the set as a 2-in-1, they swap out the recetenna AND a couple components on the front mandibles. I'm guessing the answer to CapnRex101's latest question has something to do with those bits!

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

@Brother Brain you beat me to it ;-)

Gravatar
By in United States,

do co-pilots count or just main pilots?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@CapnRex101 isn't it tractor beam projectors? :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just entered!!! Thankyou!!!!!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Sir Brickalot - Correct!

Gravatar
By in Germany,

...and they switched out the toilet plumbing for vacuum decomposers. So I've heard. ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Cooool-Happy to enter.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I just realized I sent in the wrong answer for one of the questions. Can I resubmit and change mine?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

They also built a galley in old crew quarters :)

Gravatar
By in United States,

Tricky questions. I'm glad they're very specific because.... blah, blah, blah, blah .... :-p

Thank you for the giveaway of the this massive set :-o oh wait it is a little one ;) but very cool :-D

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

hi, would also like clarification whether a pilot = co-pilot as well please?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Hi JDM

"a pilot = co-pilot"?

I do not believe so. Thankfully I know of three pilots, but that question has made me realise I do not know the Star Wars movies as well as I thought I did. Perhaps that's a good thing?

Gravatar
By in Canada,

Entered, don't expect to win since I never win anything XD, but it was fun trying to remember all that info, I did struggle with the second one, but I have three different pilots and two co-pilots, not sure if they count... anyways, fingers crossed on a cool prize in my future

Gravatar
By in United States,

Any chance you guys here at Brickset COULD raffle off a 75192?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm with @Morgan19 --technically correct is the best kind of correct!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

nice prize,woild fit nicely in my new display cabinet

Gravatar
By in United States,

Just entered, would be nice to win something for a change. Best of fortune to everyone!

Gravatar
By in United States,

When someone wins, can you post the instructions online? I would like to build that set with pieces that I have or will get.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

Entered. Not to late I hope.

By in United States,

@TieFighterPilot you made it by about 2 hours.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Entered.... in the nick of time....

Thank you for this nice little contest, Brickset!

Gravatar
By in United States,

Wasn't Leia in the Pilot Seat of the Millennium Falcon during the TIE Fighter Attack in A New Hope? That would technically make her the fifth pilot.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

^ Leia was also in the pilot seat towards the end of Empire

Gravatar
By in United States,

She wasn't directly piloting tho at the end of ESB, she instructs Chewie to go back then maneuver the ship so Lando can retrieve Luke dangling from the comm array - Chewie did the actual piloting.

That also means the MF can be piloted from either position, so regardless of what labels we put on characters it's the act of directly flying the ship that designates piloting.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Ha! I forgot about the end of that escape sequence later on - she indeed is at the controls when the hyper-drive malfunctions and Chewie goes off to try and fix it. Interestingly, she's sitting where Chewie normally sits at that point.

Based on that evidence, I'd have to say anyone sitting in either seat and handling controls while the MF is in flight could actively be flying the ship.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

...but Han obviously had a favourite seat with a Homer Simpson style dent in it

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The cockpit of the Millennium Falcon features twin control yokes so it can be flown from either the left or right hand seat. However, many of the primary control systems are more easily accessible from the seat on the left so that seems to be designated for the pilot under typical circumstances.

@Ladendorf - Leia is sitting in the pilot's seat during the TIE Fighter attack but I do not get the impression that she was actually flying. I think it more likely that Chewbacca was flying from the seat on the right and that Leia was simply watching the battle.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Now that it's over is Nien Numb a pilot?

Gravatar
By in United States,

Now that its over are these correct?
1. It did the Kessel Run in 12 parsecs (NOT 14)

2. If I understand the question correctly I would say
1. Han Solo - Main Pilot
2. Chewy - Co Pilot
3. Lando - Pilot to Destroy the Deathstar

3. Unkar Plutt who stole it from the Erwin Boys

Gravatar
By in United States,

I gave the following:
1 - .5 past lightspeed
2 - Lando Calrissian, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and...?
3 - Unkar Plutt

For Answer 2, there was some debate about Princess Leia actually piloting at the end of ESB. But the other three pilots are correct. If Leia is wrong, then I'm not sure who the other two pilots were.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Leia also appears to be piloting the MF in ESB during the asteroid field sequence when both Chewie and Han are attempting to fix the hyperdrive.

If it's not her, then there can only be four within scope of the OT.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

There are five.
Lando Calrissian and Nien Numb piloted the MF during the battle that destroyed Death Star II (ROTJ).

(Would have been nice if they had been included in 75192!)

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The answers are as follows:

1. Point five past light speed. I also accepted reference to making the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs as the question was somewhat ambiguous, although that comment is really targeted towards Obi-Wan. In hindsight I would have mentioned docking bay 94 to make it a little clearer that I was looking for the 'she'll make point five past light speed' quotation.

2. Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Lando Calrissian and Nien Numb. Leia is piloting the Millennium Falcon as it enters the asteroid field and later during the escape from Cloud City.

3. Unkar Plutt.
