The Lego Millenium Falcon collection is the result of what started way back in 1999, when the Lego Star Wars theme was launched with the model 7140, Lego X-Wing. This was just the first release of what was soon to become a huge part of the Lego brand. Star wars was actually the first intellectual property to be licensed by Lego. They started by launching a few sets based on the original trilogy just as The Phantom Menace was released in theaters. Then they continued to release new Lego Star Wars sets every time a new movies was about to be released.

Here is a detailed history of the whole Lego Star Wars Millenium Falcon  collection:

Lego 7190 Millenium Falcon 150x150 The Lego Millenium Falcon, Legos Ultimate Star Wars Set?The first ever model of the legendary Han Solo’s ship was released back in 2000, the Lego 7190 Millenium Falcon. This set is part of the Lego Star Wars Classic line. It has 659 pieces, is 12″ across and comes with 6 mini figures, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Like Skywalker, R2-D2 and C-3PO.

 

 

 

Lego 4488 Mini Millenium Falcon 150x119 The Lego Millenium Falcon, Legos Ultimate Star Wars Set?The second set of this precious collection was released in 2003, the Lego 4488 Mini Millenium Falcon. This set is a lot smaller, and contains only 87 pieces. It comes with extra parts that allows you to build a Y-Wing Fighter when combined with parts from sets 4489, 4490 and 4491. As Lego describes it, it might be small, but it’s still the fastest ship in the galaxy!

 

 

Lego 4504 Millenium Falcon The Lego Millenium Falcon, Legos Ultimate Star Wars Set?
The third Star War model released was the Lego Millenium Falcon 4504. Also in the Classic Star Wars line, the Lego 4504 set was released in 2004. It has 985 pieces, has several movable parts, includes a Hoth version of the ship, as well as 5 minifigures, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Snowtrooper, C-3PO and last but not least, Han Solo!

 

Lego 10179 Ultimate Collectors Millenium Falcon The Lego Millenium Falcon, Legos Ultimate Star Wars Set?The next release is a real special one, the Lego 10179 Ultimate Collector’s Millenium Falcon! Released in October 2007, it is one of Lego’s largest sets ever produced, measuring a whopping 33″ long by 22″ wide and 8.3″ tall, yet it still scales fine with the mini figures (most other sets in Ultimate Collector Series don’t). with it’s 5195 pieces, and a manual of over 300 pages, this is more than a simple toy, it is a really special collectible for any true Lego StarWars fan. Note that the Lego 10179 is now very rare as it was discontinued on  the 24th of June, 2010. But from my research is it still possible to find, yet not easy. This UCS set has an incredible 5195 pieces, and comes with 5 minifigures, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Chewbacca, Princess Leia, Han Solo and Luke Skywalker!

 

Lego 7778 Millenium Falcon The Lego Millenium Falcon, Legos Ultimate Star Wars Set?Then in August 2009 was released the Lego 7778 Midi-scale Millenium Falcon, a Star Wars 10th Anniversary Line set. This model is the first of what is supposed to be a new generation of “midi-scale” Lego StarWars sets. It is large enough to challenge advanced builders and to show a good level of details, yet too small to really support minifigures. This set has few moving parts, and is mostly layered pates rather than the traditional bricks. Unlike the Lego 10179 Millenium Falcon, this 356 pieces set is a good balance between play and display.

 

Lego 7965 Millenium Falcon The Lego Millenium Falcon, Legos Ultimate Star Wars Set?One of the latest sets, released in July 2011, is the Lego 7965 Millenium Falcon. Straight from the Death Star escape scene of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, this 1238 pieces vessel mesures over 15″ wide and 4″ tall, and features  several moving parts such as rotating quad laser cannons, missiles, hull plates that open and a removable cockpit cover. With the Lego 7965 you also get 6 minifigures, Darth Vader (with several weapons), Princess Leia, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Ben Kenobi.

Of course your favorite Lego StarWars mini-figure characters are included so you can replay and re-live your favorite moments from the movies. Evaluate your skills as a pilot, if you think you can navigate the Kessel Run faster than the 12 parsecs as smuggler Han Solo boasts to have done. And for sure you’ll want to stage an assault on the ever threatening Death Star.

Being true to the original, the Millenium Falcon Lego sets include details like revolving upper and lower-positioned quad-laser gun turrets, a nice radar satellite dish that you can spin and raise up, and a boarding ramp that can easily be extended; just some of the great features incorporated in the design.

The amount of detail and special pieces included make it challenging enough to build, so you won’t become bored easily. Assembly needs a bit of planning and discipline though. This means that putting the Lego Millenium Falcon together needs a bit of patience, however, step-by-step instructions help ensure that the building process for each of these models is fairly hassle-free. The moment it’s finished, any one of these Millenium Falcon Lego Sets are bound to inspire amazement all-around.

lego starwars 300x223 Lego StarWars, The Complete SagaLego StarWars is the series of models devoted to the legendary Star Wars fable. The very first Lego StarWars sets were based on the initial Star Wars trilogy and introduced in 1999, at the exact same time as the blockbuster movie “The Phantom Menace” came out.

More versions founded on the earlier trilogy; “Star Wars, episodes 1 to 3” came soon after. As each brand-new Star Wars movie gets closer to its theater release date, Lego released new models of vessels related to those movies such as the Lego Millenium Falcon, as well as other Lego sets based on the first trilogy.

The Lego StarWars product range which has found itself so well-liked and incredibly well-acclaimed by its enthusiasts has spawned four video games developed from the Lego StarWars models and the Star Wars movies, and August 2009 saw the commemoration of a decade of Lego StarWars, with the introduction of the short computer-animated video, titled “Lego Star Wars: The Quest for R2-D2”, (a comedy).

In addition to the original mini scale versions, 2007 saw Lego Group unveil a limited edition model, Lego 10179, as part of the “Ultimate Collector Series” (UCS). This model is noticeably larger in size, cost far more than regular Lego sets such as the Lego 4504, and with exhaustive detailing is intended to be exhibited rather than player with. Special features include things like a technical specification display-plaque, a mount for display purposes, as well as five mini-figures scaled to fit perfectly with the Lego Millenium Falcon 10179. With 5195 pieces, it is the largest Lego StarWars model set ever; and the second largest set of all time among any collection ever made, the first being the Lego Taj Mahal (with 5922 pieces).

So whether you want to pilot the Lego Millenium Falcon as Han Solo or conquer the galaxy as Darth Vader, you’ll find all your favourite Stars Wars characters in the Lego StarsWars series.

Lego Millenium Falcon 4504 Lego Millenium Falcon 4504, My Detailed Review

The Lego Millenium Falcon 4504 is the third Star Wars Lego set to be released and is part of the Classic Star Wars line. It features the Hoth version of Han Solo’s famous starship which is seen in the movie “A New Hope”. With 985 pieces and measuring 3.8 x 15.1 x 22.6 inches, this iconic set weighs around 5 pounds and was a bestseller back in 2004.

Five of your favorite characters also come packed in the box along with the ship in the form of mini-figures: Chewbacca, C3PO (light pearl colored), a Snowtrooper, and the Hoth version of Han Solo and Princess Leia. Although not as large as some of the later sets in the Classic Star Wars line, the Lego 4504 set is definitely still considered a must-have for die hard collectors and Star Wars/Lego fans.

I was especially interested in checking out and reviewing this model as I heard that unfortunately, it has long since been discontinued by LEGO and is now considered a rare item. However, luckily Amazon still has a few Lego 4504 for sale, but they are disappearing very quickly and soon may be very difficult to find elsewhere. Anyways, on to the review! Below I will be outlining some of the nifty features of the Lego Star Wars 4504 set and some of the things that I enjoyed about it most, and some actual customer reviews, pictures, and a video will also be included so that you can see firsthand why people were so excited about the Lego 4504 set when it first appeared in 2004!

Lego Millenium Falcon 4504 Review

On par with the other models of the Lego Millenium Falcon, such as the Lego 10179, the Lego Millenium Falcon 4504 has an incredible amount of detail and really does closely resemble the one from “A New Hope” which we see when our heroes travelled to the planet Hoth. The thing that impressed me the most initially about the Lego Star Wars 4504 set was the amount of detail not only on the exterior, but also within the interior. The inside of the ship can be exposed by lifting up the triangular roof pieces which flip open outward, and after doing so, you can really see how everything inside the ship closely resembles the ship from the movie.

Lego 4504 300x300 Lego Millenium Falcon 4504, My Detailed ReviewThere are lots of hand tools that you can put on racks, and even a Hoth fatigue which you can put on the Han Solo mini figure by removing his hair. Besides that, some other extra cool stuff that I loved about the Lego 4504 set was the escape pod and the movable gun turret. There is also a ramp which you can lower by pushing the starboard hatch lid, and a swiveling cockpit which you can open to place mini figures inside.

The only thing that I wish was better with the Lego 4504 set was that the triangular roof pieces fall off less easily, and the entry hatch is similarly loose at times. The Lego Millenium Falcon 4504 however, is more of a collector’s item than a toy, and therefore is more fit for display on a shelf or cabinet.

Overall, the Lego Star Wars 4504 set was an excellent addition to my collection, and I enjoyed every minute of putting it together. If you too want to own this magnificent collector’s item, my advice to you would be to get it on Amazon before the last few items disappear. I myself had a hard time acquiring my own Lego 4504 set, so I know how difficult it is. But man, it was definitely worth it! icon smile Lego Millenium Falcon 4504, My Detailed Review That’s one more for the display cabinet.

Here is a video I found showing in pretty much all it’s detail this Lego Millenium Falcon set. And no I did not make this video, so credits to the guy who did:P

Lego 4504 Customer Feedback

This set is so amazing, I took the time to gather some real actual customer reviews from several sites, and boy this is a home run, it’s not rated 4.5 out of 5 stars for nothing!

By Wayne “The set was WELL worth buying. IT IS EASILY THE BEST STAR WARS LEGO SET RELEASED. My son absolutely loves playing with it and I enjoy making mods to the ‘ole Falcon, kinda like Han Solo himself did.”

By Christian “Took me about 12 hours, because I had to take it apart and rebuild it, but it was well worth it. Unbelievable quality and durability!”

By Lance “This set was so much fun to put together I actually took it apart and assembled it again. If I could give the Millennium Falcon 6 stars, I would.”

By Anonymous Kid “It is a major improvement from the first Millennium Falcon set. I think it is quite cheap when compared to its value. I would buy this set if you are a LEGO fan.”

 

Now the bad news…

The Lego Millenium Falcon 4504 is going extinct as it is no longer in production. Soon it will become a very hard to find Lego Star Wars set.. BUT, as I said earlier, if you stop thinking about it (like you probably have been for the last several months hehe) and act now, this model is still available on Amazon. Of course the quantities are steadily dropping, and the price is constantly rising, and I am not just saying that, you actually see the number left in stock on Amazon, one of the rare places that still have this soon to be priceless masterpiece.

So that is it, you read my review, now it is up to you, if you have been desiring this set since it came out, I suggest you move quickly for the reasons I just mentioned. Anyways, I hope my review was helpful, I know I am still enjoying my Lego 4504 every time I see it and I hope you are too (or soon will be!).

Lego Millenium Falcon 10179 Review

Although it can be great fun to build with your kids, or in my case the entire family, the Lego 10179 is not recommended for kids under the age of 16 as it will challenge even the most advanced Lego builders. However it is an incredibly fun set to build that will keep you busy for days! Alone, even on my second time building it, I spent over 20 hours to put this masterpiece back together, and I enjoyed every minute of it… again icon smile Lego Millenium Falcon 10179, My In Depth Review What, did you really think I would only build it once?

lego millenium falcon Lego Millenium Falcon 10179, My In Depth ReviewAs I was saying earlier, every detail of this famous Lego Star Wars vessel is packed into this model. It is a HUGE, prestigious, movie-accurate Lego Millenium Falcon. The ultimate center piece of any Lego or Star Wars fan! It has rotating quad-laser turrets at the top and bottom, an extendable boarding ramp, landing gear to use as a base to sit it on which I find very useful. You can even seat a crew of mini figures in the removable cockpit.

I must say that I find it disappointing that this set comes in almost 80 unidentified small bags. So a tip from me to you, if you decide to buy this Lego 10179 set, I suggest after your first build, when you decide to take it apart later on (why would you do that?) you separate the block into logical sections and identify them in ziploc bags if you don’t want to relive the original nightmare of looking for the right part surrounded by a messy pool of blocks icon razz Lego Millenium Falcon 10179, My In Depth Review

One other important thing to keep in mind is that the Lego 10179 is not a toy, it is far too big and heavy to “play” with, however it is great admiring in from all angles when it is resting on it’s sturdy feet, in my case, in my display case. This being said, I own several other Lego Ultimate Collector sets and this is the one that really gets people talking when they see my collection, really impressive. Also included in the box, besides the huge instruction booklets of course, is a special collector’s display card that shows off all the specs of this one of a kind Millenium Falcon.

Here is a video I found showing in pretty much all it’s detail this Lego Millenium Falcon 10179 set. And no I did not make this video, so credits to the guy who did:P

Lego 10179 Customer Feedback

I don’t want you to just take MY word for it of how awesome this set really is, so I gathered some real actual customer reviews from different sites, and boy it’s unanimous, this set is not rated 4.7 out of 5 stars for nothing!

By Ryan “I have been building LEGOs since I was a toddler in the early 1980s and this is hands down the most enjoyable set to build and play with. I recommend this to any fan of LEGOs and/or Star Wars.”

By Conrad “I have all the other ultimate collector sets and this one is by far my favorite.”

By Anonymous Kid “As for why you’d want to buy it, well, just look at it, it’s the Millenium Falcon. It’s awesome, it’s Lego, and it’s one of the coolest things you could have in your home.”

By Pompey “I have built it 3 times now and still enjoy it as much as the first time. I can honestly say you will not regret this purchase.”

 

Now the bad news…

The Lego Millenium Falcon 10179 is now an endangered species as it was discontinued on June 24th, 2010. Soon it will literally become, the impossible to find, Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s set… BUT, like I said earlier, if you don’t keep thinking about it for too long (like you probably have been for the last several months hehe) the Lego 10179 is still available on Amazon. Of course the price has gone up, and quantities are getting low, I’m not just saying that, you really can see the stocks dropping on Amazon, one of the last few places that still sell this soon to be priceless masterpiece.

So hey, you read what I had to say, it’s not too late if you have been wanting the Lego 10179 since it launched, but I do suggest you act quick if your serious for the reasons stated above. Either way, I hope you enjoyed my review, I am still loving my Lego Millenium Falcon 10179 and I hope you have as much fun with yours, as I did with mine.
