In 2007, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the hit movie, Star Wars, LEGO introduced what many consider to be the greatest LEGO set of all time: the #10179 Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon, a set so spectacular Han Solo himself would be proud.
The more than 5,000-piece Millennium Falcon sold for a whopping $499.99, the most expensive set on the market at the time. Today, depending on condition, the set can be worth between $3,400-$5,700 on the secondary market. An extremely rare set sold for $15,000 in Las Vegas; a sale which appears to be an outlier on the secondary market.
What makes the LEGO set so valuable? For starters, the ship is expertly modeled after arguably the most famous space ship in movie history, the Millennium Falcon captained by Han Solo and his enormous sidekick, Chewbacca. Although it has little playability value, the sheer awesomeness of the set is staggering.
