It comes with a heavier retail price tag but it also has long term potential as anyone who collects or builds Lego sets, the original Millennium Falcon Ultimate Collectors Edition set sales for some really decent money nowadays. The key though is NIB to get the best secondary market price.
The latest Millennium Falcon 75192 set is the biggest and most detailed set to date for any Millennium Falcon, which I think puts the original UCS set to shame in terms of size and details.
This type of gamble isn’t for everyone though. Retail price starts at $799.99 for the set but for those that do have a few hundred bucks lying around, the potential that this set one day sells for a few thousand is hard to pass up. Sets are selling around retail to $1099 currently and some bidders have snagged sets under retail price. This is definitely one to keep an eye on, try to buy low or at retail price and then hold as a long term gamble. Once supplies run dry, I can only imagine we’ll start to see the value increase over time.
Here’s the full list of features for the set:
