If you have built either the 2011 or 2015 version of the Falcon, there is not much new to see. However, if you are looking for your first Falcon Lego experience, you will not be disappointed with this one. The fact that the classic split nose look can be achieved by removing the escape pod gives this set great backwards compatibility, making it perhaps the only Falcon you need to play with characters from both generations. While minifigures should not be the reason you invest this much cash into a set, the characters are well done. But honestly, I'd rather have Lando's L3 droid than the random Kessel droids. This set has great play value and I would highly recommend for anyone who truly plays with Legos. If you're looking for a collector's piece or a challenging build, this would not be your first choice.
The last Millennium Falcon had 1329 pieces, and went for $115 retail. There is a $60 dollar mark up here for about 80 more pieces. No thanks, Lego.
75212 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon is a great set, but it faces a challenge that more and more Star Wars vehicles will have to confront in the years to come. The Millennium Falcon is revered by many in my generation, children of the 70s and 80s, as something almost holy. I grew up pretending to fly it and can vividly remember my elation back in 2000, when it was announced that Han Solo's iconic vessel would be immortalised in the brick. Some 18 years after its first incarnation flew onto shelves, this is the fifth non-UCS minifigure scale version and the thirteenth set based on the source material to be released. My first thought upon completing this model was that I have seen this before, there is nothing new here – I felt almost guilty about it, like I was betraying a loved one by being so disinterested.
This is a pretty decent Millennium Falcon building experience. I love the minifigures' assortment and I have no issues or rant about it. For the Millennium Falcon design, I find it strange to have that auxiliary craft at the front to make it complete and I am pretty sure Han Solo got rid of that feature to shave some weight.
While the set does feel necessary as part of the wave of LEGO Star Wars sets released in support of the movie, actually purchasing it doesn't feel nearly as necessary. My opinion may change when I see the movie — I may love Ron Howard's take on the Star Wars universe as much as I loved Rogue One — but without the added motivation from liking the movie, it's hard to recommend this LEGO set on its own merits.
