Star Wars and LEGO have a long, successful, and storied history of collaboration. So it makes sense that they’d pair up again when it came time to release the largest set ever. And they went with the obvious winning choice in picking Han Solo’s Corellian freighter, the Millennium Falcon, for their latest and greatest Ultimate Collector’s Edition.
Interestingly enough, another version of the Millennium Falcon already held the title – measuring up at a total of 5,195 pieces – before being dethroned by a replica of the Taj Mahal. Now, the belt has been returned, with this new set clocking in at a whopping 7,541 pieces total. And every piece goes to good use, offering a level of precision and detail unheard of in any other LEGO set. This kit even comes with a complement of minifigs, including both old and young Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Rey, Finn, C3PO, BB-8, and even a parasitic Mynock from The Empire Strikes Back. The set will be released on October 1st for a price of $800.
