It’s really heard to imagine how large this set is, unless you have a chance to see it in real life. If you are lucky enough to live near an official LEGO store, the #75192 LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon should be on display. Also, if you have ever seen in person the #10179 LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon released in 2007, the two sets are actually the same size.
And, if you are looking for display options for the set, one of the most popular and practical ways LEGO fans have been displaying the earlier version of the Falcon is to encase it in a glass-top coffee table. This allows the Falcon to be fully visible, and protected without taking up extra space. Below is a wonderful example of this arrangement by LEGO fan lysanderchau. He even includes building plans for the coffee table, in case you would like to build one yourself in this flickr album.
If you missed out on the previous version of the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon, this is your chance to add it to your collection. It really is the crown jewel of all LEGO Star Wars sets, and the dream of hardcore LEGO Star Wars fans. You can find it under the.
