The Ultimate Collectors Millenniun Falcon edition is in short exactly what it says it is. The Falcon has always been the ultimate ship of the orginal Star Wars movies ... I've always wanted to build one, but never had enough bits! ... until now ...
Firstly it's not a toy and given the price, it's not something that an under 16 could necessarily afford. But .... it is the best Star Wars Lego set you can buy. The shear scale and attention to detail is brilliant -> the gun turrets, the engines, the surface details on every component, the cockpit etc.
The packaging and especially the coffee book instruction manual (a mere 300+ pages long) gives some indication of how long it takes to build. Being a seasoned engineer, and with suitable tea breaks, I managed this in under 18 hours. The number of parts is daunting, so you must sort first, and organise a large spaceship bulding yard, say the dining room table.
At 10 kg in weight, 82 cm long and 52 cm wide, you'll need to clear the coffee table as well to actually store it on.
In summary, being a grössekinder, I love this Lego Millennium Falcon!
p.s. keep the box and manual, it will be a collectors item.
p.p.s. can Lego please bring out an equivalently sized Star Destroyer as well?

Took me a week to build. Great fun, but back-breaking work. It's too big to display, so I wil probably build it again and again and again and...

So i bought this "star war" thing for my nephew as I had promised him one earlier this year, when I told him it was arriving he was extremely exited, given the price he had better be , so it arrived and my nephew started building it with my husband as I have no clue what it even is!!!! So they started making it and shortly found that a piece of the exterior was bent . We packed all up ready to replace it for a new one but one of the tiny pieces went missing so we could not give it Back . Now all I'm stuck with is some Lego and 4million pound less
