2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the original star wars movie and also the 10th anniversary of the LEGO 75105 Millennium Falcon model. To commemorate this, the LEGO 75192 set was released! LEGO VIP members had the opportunity to buy the set on Thursday, September 14, 2017. LEGO are doing everything they can to make more sets available, we’ll update this review with more details when we have them.
The brand new LEGO Star Wars ultimate collector series Millennium Falcon is the same size as before, but with over 7,500 pieces it’s technically the largest and most detailed Millennium Falcon set ever released.
LEGO 75192 Star Wars Millennium Falcon Set
The new LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon 75192 set has all the details that any Star Wars fan could wish for. It’s a lot more detailed than the previous Millennium Falcon set, with more pieces and a better balance between studded and flat parts.
The bricks are not a perfectly smooth grey, which gives it a weathered look and breaks the monotony of the colours. Overall, the LEGO Millennium Falcon 75192 set is a very faithful adaptation of the original — including elements both of the original trilogy as well as the new The Force Awakens look and feel.
This set was pre-released to VIP Members on September 14th, 2017. The LEGO Millennium Falcon is 21cm high, 84cm long and 56cm wide.

- 7,500 pieces, making it one of the biggest LEGO sets yet.

- 1 BB-8 droid, 2 buildable Porgs and 1 buildable Mynock.

Special features in this set
This set brings the new cockpit canopy element. Opening individual hull panels give you access to the inside without compromising the whole exterior appearance. The Han and Leia mini-figures have double-sided heads, and you can turn them to show them wearing a breathing mask.
As a redone version of the 2007 LEGO Millennium Falcon, and the third Millennium Falcon product, this one is a lot more detailed and complex than any other set of its kind. The internal boxes are easy to open and thus, good for collectors.
How much is the LEGO Millennium Falcon 75192 set?
The LEGO 75192 set, due to the number of pieces and complexity, isn’t going to be cheap. As this set has limited availability, prices will vary.

LEGO Millennium Falcon 75192 Review (VIP Pre-Release)
This set is not for the faint of heart. Not just because it’s massive (it’s one of the biggest LEGO sets ever) but it’s also complex. This set may be difficult for newcomers to LEGO sets of this kind, as it’s not an easy build.
Still, what an enjoyable experience. This set pays itself over and over for a true LEGO enthusiast. It’s not cheap, but it’s worth every penny, due to the amount of detail and care put on this set. The ship’s interior is true to the Star Wars spirit. The outside is very well done. From afar, it doesn’t even look like LEGO. Changing radar dishes will change this ship’s look from the original trilogy to the new series, as you prefer.
Unlike previous sets, this one has more colour to it, which makes it look more nuance, weathered and vivid than just a solid, monotonous grey.
Pros & Cons
The ship has four compartments, one of which isn’t detailed or decorated, so you can do what you want. The LEGO Millennium Falcon 75192 doesn’t come with a Luke, Lando Calrissian or R2D2 mini-figure, which is a shame; however, it’s compatible in appearance with the other Star Wars sets mini-figures. The classic Han Solo & Princess Leia mini-figures are beautifully detailed.
Due to its size, if you intend to display it, build it close to your display. Moving it may be difficult. Like the 2007 Millennium Falcon, it’s a sturdy and solid piece, but because of its weight and shape (as it’s a very big piece), the LEGO 75192 set may be difficult to carry and parts may break away because of this.
The stickers detract a little from the model, but not by much. If you’re not fond of LEGO stickers, you can leave them out as there aren’t that many. The smuggling compartment is unfortunately quite small and won’t fit a mini-figure, but the rest of the detail in this ship makes up for it. The building sequence may frustrate some, as you need to move the ship to add the hull, while also not damaging the interior — but again, minor quibbles in an overall fantastic product. This Star Wars LEGO set is simply stunning and will be at the top of thousands of fans wishlists’.
