This year marks the 40th anniversary of Star Wars and rumors have started to swirl about a LEGO Star Wars UCS set that has been rumored for a while. It’s pretty easy from the image above that it’s the Millennium Falcon. There are various users on Eurobricks who have some information about the new UCS Millennium Falcon. Paperballpark mentions that it’ll have interchagable radar dishes, one round and one rectangular, so you can display it as it is shown in Episodes 4-6 or in Episode 7.
To give more speculation on the UCS Millennium Falcon, the box on the updated UCS Death Star (75159) shows a blacked out silhouette of the Falcon on the bottom left corner that is more prominent than the silhouettes of the other ships. This could absolutely mean nothing at all or LEGO could be hinting at it for a while.
Given that the original 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon is one of the most definitive sets in LEGO Star Wars history and a holy grail for many fans, a new one would be great news. Fans weren’t too happy with the re-release of the Death Star since it wasn’t retired for that long but it’s safe to say that they would welcome a re-release of the UCS Falcon with open arms and wallets. There are many factors that contribute to the set being legit such as the Star Wars 40th anniversary and reports from good sources like Paperballpark and a “friend” that makes me think the set will be coming sooner than you may think.
