|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 "spikes", so the set was designed more than just a toy, but mimicking the basic Star Wars technology and architecture. Upon its release in 2007, UCS Millennium Falcon is the second largest LEGO set ever produced, after 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.
