The iconic Millennium Falcon from the “Star Wars” lore is literally one of the biggest figures in pop culture.
Although its gargantuan size would be hard to imitate in real life, its massive piece LEGO version is pretty impressive and has been sought upon by toy aficionados all over.
After some special modifications, the LEGO Falcon is now bigger and better than ever, consisting of a whopping 7,541 bricks and earning the spot as the largest set ever.
Previously, the LEGO Falcon “ultimate collector’s edition” consisted of 5,195 pieces.
Although the number is still quite high, it was 727 pieces behind the LEGO version of world renowned landmark Taj Mahal, according to Mashable.
Aside from the thrill of building such a large set, potential buyers will also enjoy a ship which can be converted into two versions—the one in “The Force Awakens” and upcoming “The Last Jedi“. It even comes with figures from “The Empire Strikes Back”.
The 2,346 additional pieces, however, won’t come cheap, as the the record-breaking collection will set buyers back around $800 (over P40,000).
