If there is one thing the LEGO is good at—besides creating some of the best toys of all time—it’s staying in the news.

Last week, the company announced their new 7,541-piece Lego Millennium Falcon—the biggest and most expensive set ever released by the company.

Created for diehard fans under their Ultimate Collector Series collection, the ultra-detailed plastic brick model includes swappable bricks for modifying the spacecraft design as it is portrayed in different movies from the series. Talk about commitment to accuracy. Additionally, the set also comes with ten Star Wars minifigs—two separate crews—from the original Trilogy and recent Saga films.

“This amazing LEGO interpretation of Han Solo’s unforgettable Corellian freighter has all the details that Star Wars fans of any age could wish for, including intricate exterior detailing, upper and lower quad laser cannons, landing legs, lowering boarding ramp and a 4-minifigure cockpit with detachable canopy,” explains the company. “Remove individual hull plates to reveal the highly detailed main hold, rear compartment and gunnery station.”

If you’re both a Star Wars and a LEGO fan—come on, who isn’t?—then the LEGO Millenium Falcon is the ultimate pinnacle of both worlds.

The set will go on sale on October 1st for $799.99. Find out more over at LEGO.
