|Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon|
It is recorded to be the largest set ever produced by LEGO, measuring 33" (84 cm) long by 22" (56 cm) wide and 8.3" (21 cm) tall. It has been designed to be to scale with the minifigures, unlike most other Ultimate Collector's Series sets. The model is very intricate in detail with many special SNOT (Studs Not On Top) techniques involved in the front "mandibles", mimicking Star Wars technology and architecture. Upon its release in 2007, the UCS Falcon was the largest LEGO set ever produced (a title later given to the 10189 Taj Mahal) with more than 5000 pieces and a 311-page instruction manual. The first copies of this set sold through LEGO.com received a special first edition certificate of authenticity.
- This is the second largest LEGO set ever made, piece-wise. Only the 10189 Taj Mahal has a higher piece count. It has 5,922 pieces.
- According to the UCS Promotional Poster, this set retired in 2009 but wasn't fully discontinued (sold out) until 24 June 2010.
- This is the most expensive LEGO set ever made.
- This is the largest Star Wars set.
- In 2011, LEGO officially held a contest to win a first edition UCS Falcon.
