Greatest LEGO Set Ever: The Millennium Falcon

Greatest LEGO Set Ever: The Millennium Falcon

#Greatest #LEGO #Set #Millennium #Falcon

In 2007, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the hit movie, Star Wars, LEGO introduced what many consider to be the greatest LEGO set of all time: the #10179 Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon, a set so spectacular Han Solo himself would be proud.

Introduced in 2007, the #10179 Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon is considered the greatest LEGO set. 

The more than 5,000-piece Millennium Falcon sold for a whopping $499.99, the most expensive set on the market at the time. Today, depending on condition, the set can be worth between $3,400-$5,700 on the secondary market. An extremely rare set sold for $15,000 in Las Vegas; a sale which appears to be an outlier on the secondary market.

In addition to the ship, LEGO’s 2007 Millennium Falcon set included a certificate of authenticity, five minifigures, and a 316-page instruction manual. 

What makes the LEGO set so valuable? For starters, the ship is expertly modeled after arguably the most famous space ship in movie history, the Millennium Falcon captained by Han Solo and his enormous sidekick, Chewbacca. Although it has little playability value, the sheer awesomeness of the set is staggering.
