$800 Millennium Falcon soars as Lego's biggest set ever

What do you think about the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon? It's no longer the world record-holder, as LEGO has today unveiled a new and improved model of the famous Millennium Falcon touting 7,541 pieces.

And as is fitting for the "Star Wars" ship Lando Calrissian called the "fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy", she's a record-setter - the company site declares it's "one of" the biggest Lego models ever, and the designers go further than that, saying in the above video that it is the absolute biggest Lego set ever.

The Falcon isn't the only collector's set Lego announced today, either. This fall, the biggest Lego set in history will arrive in stores in the form of the Millennium Falcon, along with a whopping ten (!) minifigs including two Han Solos (The Empire Strikes Back and The Force Awakens). Marvel at the intricate hull detailing, sensor dish, upper and lower quad laser cannons, seven landing legs, lowering boarding ramp and hidden blaster cannon.

The updated version of Han Solo's smuggling ship stands at 33 inches long, 22 inches wide and 8 inches tall. The cockpit can seat up to four minifigures, includes a detachable canopy, and the outer panels can be removed to reveal the highly-detailed interior.

The last Lego Millennium Falcon, released in 2007, was a little smaller of 5,197 individual pieces, but it also packaged minifigs of Luke, Leia, Obi-Wan, and (of course) Han and Chewie in their looks from 1977's A New Hope.

Main hold features a seating area, Dejarik holographic game, combat remote training helmet, engineering station with turning minifigure seat and a doorway build with passageway decoration.

Builders can also choose to build the original version of the ship from the original trilogy, or the newer version from the sequels.
