The new model is the same size as the Millennium Falcon set released 10 years ago, but is "greatly enhanced", a member of the Lego design team said in a video from the company released today.

Lego had recently teased that they were releasing one of the largest Lego sets they had for Star Wars, and a lot of people had guessed that it would be the Ultimate Collector Series Millennium Falcon. And it's the stuff dreams are made of. That put it 727 pieces behind the Taj Mahal, the world's largest LEGO set until now. Marvel at the intricate hull detailing, sensor dish, upper and lower quad laser cannons, seven landing legs, lowering boarding ramp and hidden blaster cannon. The whole set, which measures eight inches tall, 33 inches long, and 22 inches wide, has a whole interior with a gunner's seat and cockpit capable of seating four Lego minifigs, meaning Star Wars fans can recreate their favorite moments in itty bitty block form. It also features a Mynock creature from Empire Strikes Back and several Porgs from the upcoming The Last Jedi.

Chelsea add Davide Zappacosta from Torino
Blues boss Antonio Conte has been chasing a new right wing-back all summer and he nearly landed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The 25-year-old is highly-rated in Italy having made his global debut last year.

The new set is part of the Ultimate Collectors Series (UCS), and lets builders create a highly detailed model of the beloved bucket of bolts from the "Star Wars" universe.

Along with today's slew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise revealed in honor of Force Friday II, there was another major announcement when it comes to to collectibles from a galaxy far, far away.

Rear compartment features the engine room with hyperdrive and console, 2 doorways, hidden floor compartment, 2 escape pod hatches, engineering console and an access ladder to the gunnery station.

The set will be available for VIPs come September 14, and it will be available for everyone else on October 1.
