A timelapse of Wired staffers, friends and family building the biggest ever LEGO set over four days – the epic 7,500 piece Ultimate Collector’s Edition Millennium Falcon.


Behold the all-new 7,541-piece Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon – the biggest LEGO set ever.

With insane levels of detail, the ship can be configured to match its appearance in The Empire Strikes Back or the films of the latest trilogy and comes with ten minifigs from both periods, including old and young Han Solo.

If €799 seems a bit steep, it’s worth remembering that this set’s predecessor, released in 2007 (and with 2000 fewer pieces), regularly changes hands for over a grand on eBay..

Come for the accent, stay for the occasionally satisfactory before and afters.
