Biggest Lego Set Ever

Postby Ian on Sat Feb 10, 2007 10:44 pm

Check out the Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon. It's almost 3 feet long and has 5000+ pieces. Yes, I am drooling.

Even more impressive is that its actually to scale to the Lego people.

Hmmm. This is new. This set is the third one in the series. I bought the first one, the Imperial Star Destroyer (it took me 19.5 hours to build). The second one was the Death Star II (didn't get that one). This one, I might get. :o

I don't know if they will put something that large together, but Lego does have a program that you can download called Lego Digital Designer.
http://ldd.lego.com/

They have all the different brick types, colors, etc. You design what you want (easier said than done) and when you are satisfied with your design, you can upload your design to the online gallery. Also, there is a feature that will allow you to price out a kit for what you designed. I don't recall what the wait time is for your kit to be built and shipped to you.

Of course, something as large as the carrier would be prohibitively expensive, but as Lone Wolf said, one can dream, can't he?
