Before anything else, I would like to clarify that what I’m about to say has nothing to do whatsoever with the availability of the still sold out, and frustratingly elusive, LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon (75192). However, I’ve been hearing news recently that certain LEGO certified stores outside of the US, particularly in Australia and Singapore, where AFOLs were fortunate enough to pre-order and purchase 50 sets of these brick-built Corellian freighters. The way it seems, it was kind enough of LEGO to set aside at least a few sets for its business partners (certified stores) in various regions where the LEGO VIP program is unavailable.
For those who are still patiently hitting the F5 buttons on their keyboards, and constantly refreshing shop.LEGO.com’s UCS Millennium Falcon product page for the hope of seeing that Add to Bag button, then you may want to check this out first. LEGO has recently uploaded into their servers the massive, 468-page building instructions for the UCS Millennium Falcon (75192). Since I haven’t seen nor held the set myself, I am naturally curious on what the building instructions may contain. If you want to download the full instructions in pdf format – a total of 83MB in file size – just head over to this link. I’ve posted the first introductory pages of the building instructions which you can find below. It provides a background on the history of the Millennium Falcon itself, and the design process involved in creating the largest LEGO set ever, with interviews from the members of the design team.
