is certainly a beast of build. The completed model is not only a massive display piece, but the set is also packed with plenty of secrets to spot, subtle nods to the source material and play features that are based on the ship’s appearance in both the original and sequel trilogies.

75192 Millennium Falcon may have been available for five years, but there’s still plenty about the biggest

Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series model released to date that you may not yet have discovered. Here are the five essential facts, stats and pure giddy fan-favourite features that make this brick-built set the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy:

5 – It requires specific weight distribution

With so many pieces required to construct a model that measures over 21 cm high, 84 cm in length and 60 cm wide, stability is a major requirement for this set. The

Star Wars design team had to ensure that adding more than 2,000 additional pieces to the build (compared to the original 10179 Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon) would still result in a very stable model that could be picked up and moved without collapsing. 

Thanks to numerous Technic pieces forming the main internal structure, that’s not something builders have to worry about. In addition, the seven landing legs also help to distribute the weight of the Falcon, although the ship only had three in A New Hope and five in The Empire Strikes Back.

4 – Han and Leia are wearing breathing masks

, representing characters from both the original and sequel trilogies. In a subtle nod to the events of The Empire Strikes Back, both the Han Solo and Princess Leia minifigures have alternate variant head prints that show them wearing breathing apparatus. This represents not only the scene in the film where the characters explore the interior of the space slug in the asteroid field, but these are also the only versions of the minifigures to date that have this print.

Unfortunately, the minifigure of Chewbacca included in the UCS set doesn’t have his own breathing mask, as the LEGO Star Wars design team would have had to create an all-new head piece design just for the character.

3 – First Order Trooper shields double as hinge plates

As the model includes 7,541 pieces, the LEGO Star Wars design team reused as many existing elements for the build of the ship as possible. This includes one piece that was originally created as a First Order Stormtrooper shield and included in the now-retired 75166 First Order Transport Battle Pack, which launched in 2017.

The white 6188613 shield piece was then repurposed for 75192 Millennium Falcon and there are eight of them used in the construction of the huge set as a hinge plates in the centre sections of the ship.

2 – An all-new cockpit piece was created

The most notable new addition to 75192 Millennium Falcon is the large cockpit piece, one that was specifically designed for the UCS set. The LEGO Star Wars design team created a more accurate transparent element for the canopy that was large enough to allow for multiple minifigures to sit comfortably within the cockpit area.

As noted by LEGO designer Jens Kronvold Frederiksen in the monster-sized instruction book included with the set, the new cockpit element is, ‘A vast improvement from the 10179 Millennium Falcon, which only had the framing on the canopy, and no glass!’

1 – The classic sensor dish includes a familiar NINJAGO element

75192 Millennium Falcon boasts two swappable sensor dishes, reflecting the design changes the ship underwent between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Whilst some might prefer the rectangular version of the dish as seen in the sequel trilogies, fans of the Falcon’s classic look will undoubtedly opt for the rounded option when displaying their massive UCS model.

What’s noticeable about the round sensor dish is that it actually features a piece from an unlikely LEGO theme. Located in the centre of the dish is an element that’s usually found in many

sets and used as Master Wu’s hat. The piece appears in a grey colour in 75192 Millennium Falcon and is yet another great example of how the LEGO Star Wars design team managed to repurpose existing elements to achieve the finished look they were after for the Ultimate Collector Series model.
