New Millennium Falcon is the Biggest LEGO Kit Ever

Though there have been sets of the Falcon before, this one promises to be the largest and most detailed of the bunch. Lego announced a new 7,500-piece Millennium Falcon set coming October 1, and selling for a whopping $800 (£650, AU$1008). And it's the stuff dreams are made of.

Welcome to the largest, most detailed LEGO® Star Wars Millennium Falcon model we've ever created-in fact, with over 7,500 pieces it is the biggest LEGO model ever sold! A BB-8, two buildable Porgs, and a buildable Mynock are also included. It's decked out with features any fan would salivate over, from upper and lower quad laser cannons to removable hull plates that, when detached, reveal the ship's vast interior.

What are your thoughts on LEGO's intense Millennium Falcon set? For scale, here's a picture of my cat Midna sitting inside a mostly completed LEGO Tower Bridge set, which includes 4,295 pieces and measures almost three feet long and just under a foot high.

The cockpit holds four minifigures, there's a living room with posh seating and a Dejarik holographic game, plus a gunner's seat and interchangeable radar dishes (since the Falcon got an updated one for the current trilogy). If you want to get this LEGO set home, you'll have to pay $799.99 when the set goes on sale on October 1, 2017 (it'll be available early for LEGO VIP members on September 14, 2017).

Here's a closer look at the new set.
