New UCS Millennium Falcon! Is coming! ***CONFIRMED***

Postby foximus-prime » Thu Jun 22, 2017 2:56 pm

Now before everyone poo poo's or boo's me hear me out! Rumors of the ne UCS Millennium Falcon I believe are true. As we all have noticed, LEGO loves to re-use new parts in different colors and with different prints so that their money in making a new mold doesn't go to waste.

And with this being said a new Lego Ninjago Movie set #70616 has not 1, not 2, but FOUR of this new cockpit piece which is bigger than past Falcon's measuring a whopping 10x6x6 with the past cockpit measuring only 8x4x6.

Here's your proof---> ImageThe LEGO Ninjago Movie Ice Tank (70616) by Allen Tran, on Flickr

I don't know about you guys but I'm freakin stoked! XD

You're probably on to something there, but lets not get ahead of ourselves.

There's an awful lot of hubbub over this and other rumors about a new Falcon over at Eurobricks, mostly from the kinds of people I'd really rather not see frequenting this site. Considering that and the current state of Eurobricks' Star Wars subforum in general, I'd have to agree with Solo.

:S I know guys but just imagine that how well that cockpit would work scale wise, and if no Falcon just imagine all the kool printed cockpits they could do with that piece. Fingers still crossed for a UCS Falcon though!

How many years running have we had a "UCS Falcon" rumor going? I think at least three... at least a year before TFA, and been assumed since TFA. I guess we'll see how much of a role it has in TLJ, and how well the sales of their current UCS stuff is doing (my guess is they've been somewhat down since the TIE)

I just saw a video from Lego on Facebook teasing the "largest Star Wars set ever" going on sale in October. You may be right...

I was totally right! @ 0:09 of the video you see BB-8 in front of the bottom gunwell, @ 0:10 the back of the cockpit much like the smaller sets (75105 & 7965) but meant for the new 5x10x6 cone seen here---> https://brickset.com/parts/design-29096 and then @ 0:12 you can see one of the docking rings at the bottom of the screen!

Whoot!!! So excited!

I just got a direct mail about it, hyping up Sept 1st for Star Wars and the largest set ever release.

Has that ever happened before? I don't remember it.

Just saw a picture of new product release in Taiwan local department store.
It clear states that the new MF is coming on Nov 6th, with a selling price of 34999 NTD (around 1,000 USD + tax)

Also, there will be a confidential Batman movie D2C set coming on Nov 13th.

I am sorry that I do not know how to post a picture here ... I have attached the picture in my other post in Eurobricks.

Yeah, reveal will be friday the 1st. Not sure what time.

Box is so big they have to attach wheels and a large handle to it, won't fit in any of their bags so they set it up as its own dolly.

Kind of disappointing that the only exclusive figures are the Han and Leia and the little porg builds (probably won't be exclusive for long) but the set overall seems to be a vast improvement. Also howdy, I'm back! It's been a couple years.

Yeah, there isn't a LEGO set worth $800, no matter how it looks. I'll enjoy my original.

I wonder if this will tank the price for the old set? Or increase the price?

I'm a bit torn, I'd like to have both but this is approaching territory where I'd consider buying the 10019, which I never bought since I'd reached my lego quota for that year sadly.

I must say I'm as disappointed as the rest of you on the price. The only resin it's so expensive is because all the those damb greebles. Loose those clean it up a bit, simplify, and through an extra sticker or tow to make up for lost greebles and you can easy take this down to $500/$600 USD. Kind of mad they didn't think of that, heck they would even sell 5-10 times more if it were more affordable!
