Totally Pointless Ultimate LEGO 75192 Millennium Falcon Set

LEGO Biggest Ever Set – 7500 Parts 75192 Millennium Falcon

The original Star Wars movie series is 40 years old now in 2017. To commemorate this even LEGO have decided to create someting bigger than before, so they created LEGO 75192 Millennium Falcon set:

Why would you want another one of these just 10 years after their 5200 parts 10179 Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon set? It seems that LEGO are running out of new ideas now, so you can expect the same model as 10.000 brick edition in 2027.

You do have to be a diehard collector to fork out hundreds of dollars for buckets of GREY(!) bricks in various shades. Well’ yes it is more detailed and supposedly matches various ship’s options for any Star Wars series, but what is really the point of this?

Weighing in at 8.5 kilos or nearly 19 pounds, it makes this set heaviest ‘hunk of junk in the Galaxy’. This is not a toy to be moved around, also the size and shape prevents it from being put on a shelf. It is just massive and may take days to build or weeks if you are prone to make mistakes. Fortunately there is one booklet this time to help you build it, and LEGO managed to squeeze the building process onto 466 pages in 1378 steps.

The box itself is an interesting qube design with four smaller boxes inside. You also get some stickers because LEGO cannot afford to make prints on 12 bricks. The bags come numbered to speed up building process, but honestly it would be even more fun (and environmentally friendly) to get all the parts in one bag.

You would imagine you might get an army of minifigures, sadly anoter disappointment – there’s only 7 and a half (BB8). Fans of the series will make note of the new Han Solo hairpiece, for some reason it seems to be at the centre of some online debates.

There is that and many more shortcomings and flaws with thisĀ LEGO 75192 Millennium Falcon set but as with any other landmark set WE ABSOLUTELY FREAKING LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here are both sets compared:
