SDCC exclusive - Millennium Falcon Cockpit

Posted by ,

San Diego Comic-Con will be taking place next month and the first of the 2018 exclusive LEGO items has been announced on LEGO's Twitter feed. 75512 Millennium Falcon Cockpit is based upon the craft from Solo: A Star Wars Story and includes the same Han Solo and Chewbacca minifigures found in 75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon.

Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this set is the packaging which resembles that of a video cassette tape. You can view an image of the box after the break...

Will you be attending San Diego Comic-Con this year and what do you think of this exclusive set? Let us know in the comments.

This looks awesome! I know I'll never get it, but for those who do, you'll have a great display piece on your hands!

Weird set to produce. IMO the box is most interesting xD

Apart from the box, which to me doesn't look interesting at all, this should be easy to rebrick, if anyone cares. Or are there any exclusive pieces to it? Even the minifigs are common ones this time.

Not impressed with this at all. When the box is better than the lego set there's something seriously wrong.

Perfect exclusive. Cool build, common pieces though and common figures. Seeing so much of the films take place in that cockpit, its kind of cool getting it stand alone with the proper number of seats for once. Worth adding to the dream list of "Bricklink" someday.

This should have been a UCS Falcon Black Card exclusive. As usual the conventions getting the good stuff while the people who spent actual money being left out.

This looks very cool! Love the idea it's just a shame that so very few will own it. @AustinPowers, I too was thinking that this should be fairly easy to replicate. Us the images and the instructions to the MF build. This would really be a nifty conversation starter being on the desk at work or something.

I like the design of the cockpit and if instructions become available may copy it for my Outrider, except for one key missing component; the windscreen. Finding a decent looking solution to fix that w/my limited MOC'ing skills may be difficult. As for this set itself though I'd probably buy it, but not for more than 15.00. Given its' exclusivity it'll probably be more like 150.00 + so no thanks. I still think this version of Chewy looks like he's been sun tanning in a microwave. I'd love to make it to Comic Con one day though!

@BrickByBrick Sure, but Lego doesn't see any of that money?

That box is great!

Agree with all those who say this is cool but will never be able to own it.

First MF cockpit that matches the original one and presents a detailed interior... At least little more than any of those made in lego sets before. Even on the fantastic 75192 the cockpit was one of the weakest aspect of the whole. This one looks good. But exclusive.

It’s kinda funny how everyone complains when Lego releases an exclusive with great figs or something like that but when they release a more reproducible one everyone complains it could have been better.

I'm glad they're stopping with the exclusive minifigures!

Great cockpit, but how big would the ship have to be to be in scale?

Why is it that Lego makes awesome giveaways at the Comic Cons which are too far away from where I live to go there. :(

@AgentR2 I live in Oregon, which is about three-four hours away, but I'm thirteen so fat chance I'll be going. :)

If there really are no exclusive parts other than the box, this would be a perfect opportunity for LEGO to release the set as a normal set after the SDCC, with standard packaging instead of the SDCC box. Then everybody who can't make it to SDCC can be upset that they don't get the special box and the folks who get the SDCC exclusive box can be upset that everyone else got to buy the pieces without using Bricklink.

Personally, I think it makes more sense to have exclusive packaging than an actual exclusive set, since the many of the exclusives end up getting flipped on the aftermarket or cloned. Better to print 1000 SDCC exclusive boxes and sell 10,000 sets than to cede the profits to the counterfeiters.

Is it possible that this could be an alternative cockpit for the 75912 UCS Millennium Falcon?
I don’t really know much about that set's cockpit size so it is just speculation.
Looks really interesting though!!

I like it

Bit cliche to say but "Meh".

As someone who hates these exclusives with a passion, I am thankful there's nothing completely exclusive about it. It's a nice little model, but nothing you couldn't piece together yourself if you wanted to. This is how I think these things should be done, rather than truly exclusive stuff that always ends up in the hands of scalpers.

Looks like a beautifully restored Type 2 Transporter. I had a T1 single cab back at the academy, it is under my boat! Put it out in the rain for an hour and kerf the whole thing. Check out the video link I sent you above.

Having seen previous SDCC exclusives that I have no chance of ever owning, it's nice that they have made one that looks like it could be easily reproduced by the millions of Lego fans that aren't going to SDCC!!! If the box is the only exclusive thing about the set, great for those that get it (though I'd say the box is "meh" not the set lol) but least it's something you could easily live without. Maybe Lego are finally listening to it's customers about "exclusive" items. In Australia we get far less the Europe and the US in terms of exclusive, there's only 1 brand store in the country (that's nearly the size of the US) and one small retail store attached to a discovery center and when Lego.com have exclusives, the cost of getting it with postage is ridiculous. In Australia free postage is only available for orders over $200, otherwise the postage is $35. Take the current Jurrasic Park exclusive - to buy a small set, say $30-$40 value will get you the exclusive, but the postage would be $35 on top of that. It's usually cheaper to get it on the after market!! Rant over lol, cool SDCC set is the point lol!!

Two years in a row for SDCC Star Wars sets with nothing exclusive (except for the box)...the way it should be.

I'm really a fan of this. Much better than giving away exclusive things that no one else can get their hands on. Exclusive packaging is a cool way of giving SDCC attendees something special without throwing others under the bus.

That being said, I do think it would be perfectly fair of them to do a slightly different alternate print for an included character, rather than sticking with what's widely available. That way attendees still get an exclusive minifigure while other fans can easily get a slightly different version of the same minifigure in another set.

Obviously the best part of this release is the simplicity of it allowing people like me to rebuild my own version easily. :)

I would find it funny if Lego just put some random bricks in these boxes just to see if anyone actually opened them or if they all just ended up as boxes on display. They could send a few proper ones to review sites and sites like Brickset. There would be a unique code inside each box to get the proper set but only found after opening fully.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I like that they have made a good set but you can rebrick it yourself if you are keen.

By in Australia,

So no-one is a big enough fan of Star Wars to get excited about what the box may be symbolising? I don't think it's flagging the first release of the original Solo movie on VHS.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Whew, no exclusive minifigs, I'll pass!

By in United States,

Will definitely bricklink this. Always wanted a set like this.

By in Germany,

It looks bigger than the UCS Falcons cockpits.
I checked up some images of those and it appears I was wrong.
Oh, well.
Will they release the rest of the Falcon in upcoming conventions? ;)

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think it's cute, but not cute enough to bricklink. I don't mind the exclusives at all, but then I'm not a collector, I just buy what I think is cool. Kinda makes me want to make an Episode IV version to put on my desk though, for that iconic 'That's no moon' moment

VHS packaging now being considered as retro makes me feel old!

Will there be a ucs solo millennium falcon?

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I hope there will be some sort of an upgrade kit with Solo MF parts for the UCS MF, because that I think that is a good idea and the Black VIP Card offers were quite disappointing so far.

So No Brickheadz exclusive set at SDCC this year.
Looks like Lego is not participating in NYCC this year.

By in United States,

Let's see, 203 pieces, which means it should be roughly $19.99, but SW inflation would make it $24.99. Then lump on the SDCC factor and you'll be able to get it on eBay the first day of ComicCon for a cool $109.99, then almost double in 3-months.

Are those tile pieces exclusive or will you be able to re create it?
