UCS falcon rumours (that turned out to be true!)

    Based on the success of recent themes, I dreamt it was an all new UCS Millenium Falcon ... the downside is that it was released under the Angry Birds license. Complete with catapults instead of flick missiles.

    Is this just an entire article on odds of UCS remakes? And in my experience, Blocks don't really know anything we don't.

    Pretty premature writing half of these off - TLG have been remaking the popular sets roughly every 8-12 years, from what we've seen recently. I would think the likes of Slave I and the Snowspeeder would be shoo-ins for a re-release down the line, given how well received they were.

    Given Blocks's track record with rumors, this confirms that the UCS Falcon will release this summer in the place of the cancelled Nexo Knights summer wave... oh wait. :P

    I took this as a good sign when I logged into my Bricklink store just a moment ago.  Bless my little visit counter - it's even more obsessed by a Falcon re-make that I am!

    You've got until September 1 to get it up to 75192 ;)

    You kids gonna get trolled: The giant D2C is gonna be... An even bigger Minecraft set!
    I will quit LEGO!! 
    No.

    Let them.

    They'll cut their losses, cancel the theme, and give the designers jobs elsewhere in the company, where they can be free and play with real LEGO.

    And that's just to a possible announcement...

    Is someone going to start a daily countdown?

    Nah... just more rumors... New LEGO part WALL, CONE 5x10x6 with design ID 29096 (element ID 6195410 for TrLtBlue)
    https://lc-www-live-s.legocdn.com/media/bricks/5/2/6195410.jpg
    was specially designed for TLNM 70616 Ice Tank and won't become available in any other color, nor in any other LEGO set... Would sound too good to be true if it were! :-P

    Nobody... that's why I ended with ':-P'
    Of course I believe that part will become available in other sets in other colours and it seems only likely that it'll become the new UCS MF cockpit piece (*if* we get a new UCS MF that is... ;-)

    Not sure if this has been mentioned before, but from September calendar:


    At least improves the chances of a UCS MF released along with any other D2C set also rumored.

    ^^^By the shape and size of the mystery box, I'm guessing the announcement on September 1st will be for the new UCS Death Star 3.0...

    Or maybe an Assault on Hoth/Death Star mash-up of some sort

    FYI, the old Falcon box is 51,186 cm³.
    The ISD is 62,357 cm³.
    The Firehouse HQ is 52,040 cm³.

    The new box would be 97,200 cm³.

    People are going to be soooooo miffed if it's just an 8200 piece London bus.

    No, its a bus station for the London bus (no London Bus included... model does not float).

    Right, any and all doubt is now out the window. This is happening.

    (and btw, @Bengh_Zeran, sorry if I came off as defensive - in this day and age of fake news, I'm just all to used to needing sources!)
  • AdeelZubairAdeelZubair London, UKMember Posts: 2,664
    Now imagine the piece count is also 4.86 times bigger...8,193! I'm pretty sure they at least planned the set to have a higher piece count than 10189 - Taj Mahal's 5922 pieces. I doubt any LEGO sets in the future will surpass this new UCS Millennium Falcon's piece count.

    @JooTog: For the giant sausages on top, CMsq:Sausages is 32,400:1

    Counting the interior decor, it's closer to 100:1 - 

    (This Falcon uses 10,000 pieces - not counting sausages - and is the work of Titan Creations)

    ^Just noticed how much the above post looked like a weird plug for Titan Creations - I am in no way affiliated with them and only came across this Falcon when looking for good images to sausage-ify. I just wanted to give credit to the creators and also raise the point that A MINIFIG-SCALE FALCON WITH FULL INTERIOR IS POSSIBLE!

    I see two explosions, one just by the cockpit and the other in the bottom right corner..
