At 7541 pieces and 84cm long, the UCS Millennium Falcon is undoubtedly a statement set. After you’ve set yourself back £734.99 for one of the most iconic LEGO Star Wars sets out there, you’ll want to display it in the best way possible.
Whether you’re an avid LEGO collector who needs to fit it in around other sets, or a Star Wars fan keen to act out some of our favourite scenes from the films, there are a number of different ways to display 75192 Millennium Falcon to suit your needs.
Here’s a look at five of our top ways to display your set – but let us know in the comments if you’ve got a genius technique of your own.
5 – Display Stands
One of the most commonly-used ways to display 75192 Millennium Falcon is on a display stand. For the ship that did the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, she needs room to breathe and get up to speed.
A stand means you can still interact with your Falcon, but it can be elevated above other sets and placed at an angle to give the illusion of flight. This one from iDisplayIt is a good example of what you can buy.
If you want to display the Falcon at a 90-degree angle, as she so often was whenever Han and Chewie were in a real bind, you can take inspiration from displays often found in LEGO stores where the ship is leaning against a wall for a dramatic look. Complete the display with a custom background from Star Wars and you’re good to go.
4 – Display Case
If you want a snappy look for your 75192 Millennium Falcon but are working in a tight space, a display case can help to protect it from any accidental bumps. Plus, it means you don’t need to dust all the nooks and crannies, with the glass panels keeping it nice and clean for you.
iDisplayIt has got another example of the kind of display case built just for this purpose. If you get creative, you can jazz up the acrylic case with LED lights or a custom background to give your set some extra flair.
For example, starry backdrops make it look like the Falcon is embarking on another action-packed flight, or pick your favourite Star Wars planet for it to come into a gentle landing on.
3- Wall Mount
Of course, if you truly want to simulate flight, you’ll need to get your 75192 Millennium Falcon up on the wall. However, with the amount of time it takes to build this set to perfection, you don’t want to do this without the right mount, for fear of it all coming crashing down around you.
The UCS Millennium Falcon weighs just under 14kg, so make sure that whatever mount you buy can hold that level of weight, or higher to be extra safe.
Raising the Falcon up on the wall can make for some dynamic-looking displays, particularly if you use shelving or cabinets above and below it to display other LEGO Star Wars sets. The video below offers a guide on how to mount 75192 Millennium Falcon and we like the look of their use of lighting for an even more compelling display.
2 – Coffee Tables
Tight on space? You can adapt your existing furniture to be a custom display case for your Falcon, keeping it safe but still in pride of place. Displays like this one adapt glass coffee tables into show-stopping displays, but the same can be done for glass side tables, dinner tables, and more.
A nice touch in this example is to incorporate base plates along the bottom, to arrange minifigures or even other sets around your Falcon for a more detailed look.
1 – Make It Your Own
To really make a splash with your UCS Millennium Falcon, you can also adapt it to make it your own. This Reddit user took it to an impressive height by making the entire ship out of leftover LEGO pieces, but there are other creative ways you can adapt it.
Some other creative ideas we love are building scrap ships to scale with the Falcon to display the chase on Jakku, incorporating jungle trees around it to look like a landing on Endor, or adding blue LED lights to the back to mimic lightspeed.
To add extra detail, pair the Falcon with minifigures outside of its given ones, like older Leia from 75140 Resistance Troop Transporter or Obi-Wan Kenobi in Dark Brown Hooded Coat from 75052 Mos Eisley Cantina.
Of course, the sky is the limit when it comes to your own adaptations, so now is the time to get creative. You can also incorporate any of the lighting, mount, or display case ideas with your build for an added effect.
