Official Pictures of 75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon

The Millennium Falcon that we all know and love has a new/old look in the Han Solo standalone film. It’s more colourful and has a much different front.

Overnight LEGO revealed official pictures of their take on the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon. I must admit it looks pretty good.

Kessel Run Millennium Falcon Product Detail

There were five minifigures revealed although there may be more in the set. There is of course young Han Solo, Chewbacca, Lando, Qi’ra and a red droid that I don’t know the name of.

You can see the rest of the images in the gallery below. What do you think of this take on the Falcon? Will you be picking it up when it’s released in April?

The catch that may make this less appealing is that the item is due for delivery in March. If you are happy to wait then it is an option worth considering. You’ll also get Toys R Us VIP points worth about $10.

Melbourne LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Builds World’s Largest Millennium Falcon

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Master Model Builder Dave got in touch with me yesterday to share details of something awesome that they have done at the centre.

Over the last week (with the help of around 7000 children/families) Dave and his fellow Master Model Builder Lewis have built the World’s Largest LEGO Millennium Falcon.

Lego Star Wars Millenium Falcon Launch HR-7

This impressive model features 250,000 pieces which is just a few more than the UCS version.

Dave and Lewis started with a 1.25m prototype that took 100 hours to complete. That prototype was then up-scaled using giant bricks built by kids. You can see the prototype version on the right in the image below.

If you want to check out the model yourself it is on display at the Melbourne LEGOLAND Discovery Centre until the end of February.

Warning: Your Millennium Falcon May Cost A Little More Than You Thought

75192 MF Fee Article

The largest ever LEGO set goes on sale for LEGO VIP customers some time tomorrow and if you aren’t already aware it’s expensive – the Australian RRP is $1299.99.

You may think that being the Australian LEGO site, and being charged in Australian dollars that the price you see is the price that you will pay? Unfortunately that isn’t always the case. A lot of credit cards will charge you an international transaction fee if the store is located outside of Australia, regardless of the currency being charged.

Here is a quick look at what the various Australian Banks say about this:

It’s Real – LEGO Announces New UCS Millennium Falcon

There is a line in The Force Awakens that I think is appropriate here… “It’s true, all of it”. After months and months of rumours, speculation, fake leaks, teasers and even some real leaks LEGO have today announced the largest ever LEGO set.

Introducing 75192 Millennium Falcon


It’s hard to put in words just how amazing this set is. Here are the key points:

  • The set has 7,541 pieces.
  • Same external dimensions as the previous version
  • It comes with two sets of minifigures – Han Solo, Chewbacca, Princess Leia and C-3PO based on Empire Strikes Back. From the sequel trilogy there is Older Han Solo, Rey and Finn.
  • The exterior has all new more accurate detailing.
  • There is multiple sections of detailed interior – Main hold with printed Dejarik board. Rear compartment with engine room and hidden compartment. Gunnery station with minifigure gunner’s seat.
  • The model can be configured in Original Trilogy or Sequel Trilogy formats – it includes a round dish and a rectangular one.

Words do little to describe the epicness of all this. So I suggest you check out the image gallery, press release and designer video below. Warning for mobile users: There are a lot of images and I left them quite large so that you can see all the details.

According to somebody I spoke to at LEGO the Australian RRP is $1299.99. The set will be officially released on October 1st, but there will be a VIP release on September 14th.

Review: 75030 Millennium Falcon™

  • RRP $15.99
  • 94 Parts ($0.17 per part)
  • 1 Minifigure

75030 Box

I am going to start this review with a confession – I am an AFOL that does not buy Star Wars LEGO. From what I have seen it appears that this is actually quite rare. When I got back in to LEGO I was tempted because I do like Star Wars. There were a few reason why I decided not to buy into the theme; Star Wars sets are generally more expensive per part than other themes and the Star Wars range covers 6 different films, so I knew I’d never have a complete collection.

Hopefully you’ll have a better sense of where I am coming from with this review. I am a Star Wars fan, but not exactly the biggest Star Wars LEGO fan.

First Impressions

As part of the Microfighters range 75030 is certainly one of the smallest versions of the Millennium Falcon that has been produced by LEGO. This Star Wars sub-theme replaced the Planet Series as LEGO’s low-cost Star Wars range. The Microfighters sets are essentially the novelty go-kart version of classic Star Wars vehicles.

When I first received the box I couldn’t help but think that the set was cute. There is something adorable and funny about seeing tough guy Han Solo sitting in a tiny Millennium Falcon.

The Build

This is a small set, so there aren’t really any surprises when cracking open the box. Parts are divided between two bags, with one bag containing all of the smaller pieces.


The build starts off with the assembly of the Han Solo minifigure. As somebody who doesn’t have a Star Wars LEGO collection I was impressed with the minifigure, but I’m not sure how we compares to previous versions. I always appreciate the added detail of leg printing, which is present on this minifigure. Han also comes with a blaster, which is handy for those times when you have to shoot first.


Once you have put Han together you start on the Falcon, and I was surprised by how quickly it becomes a recognisable shape. Within just a few steps you are looking at something that is clearly going to become the Millennium Falcon.


LEGO have done a great job of capturing the lines and curves at such a small scale.


There are also slide shoes added to the bottom of the set, which helps it glide around. This inclusion is obviously more for the younger fans, or as LEGO calls them “the target market”.


I appreciate the inclusion of a printed brick to capture the cockpit. It may sound strange but without that little extra bit of detailing I think the set would lose some of it’s overall resemblence.

Speaking of the overall look – I am not a big fan of the two flick-fire missles added to the top of the set.


The Final Verdict

I was really impressed with this set. The final product is quite a solid little build, something that would handle being played with well. The only complaint that I do have is very minor (the flick-fire missiles) and does not really have that much impact.

I also feel that the RRP is just a little to high for this set. Yes it does have 94 pieces, but all of those pieces are on the small side. It’s definitely a set that I wait to get on sale. At 20% I think this would be better value for money.


So should you buy this set? This is a small, quick and simple build but the final product has a lot of charm to it. I think whether you buy this set really comes down to what you think of the style. If the pictures of this set have you interested then I do recommended it. If you have a huge Star Wars collection and find this set to be a bit unimpressive then I don’t think there is anything here that would change your mind.
