Let’s make something clear at the start of this review: the Millennium Falcon is the most iconic ship in the history of science fiction. It is one of the most recognizable images in all of pop culture over the last 50 years and it has endured as a staple of childhood fantasy since Luke Skywalker first called it “a piece of junk.”

It’s been replicated in Lego many times. In fact, at the time of writing, there are three different versions of the Falcon in production, and since the first one 20 years ago, it’s one of the most remade sets ever. It even has an older Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) model which was long sought after by collectors for years. However, it wasn’t until 2017 that Lego reintroduced the icon to the UCS line with the new UCS Millennium Falcon and it’s been the holy grail for Star Wars fans ever since.

In many ways, the UCS Millennium Falcon feels like the final boss of Lego. Not only is it probably the most visually striking Lego release of all time, but it’s also one of the most complex. This isn’t just a normal Lego set but bigger. In order to pull off the incredible design, the detail, and the scale, the set is as much about building a solid frame within the Falcon as it is the outside with the hundreds of small parts to give the ship it’s weathered effect. Part-technic set, the core of the Millennium Falcon is a rock-solid foundation of bricks that make it feel heavy, sturdy, and crucially, possible to move without feeling like it’s all going to break apart.
