Parts difference between UCS MFs 10179 & 75192

Recommended Posts

Has anyone done a parts list comparison between the old and new UCS Millenium Falcon?

I've previously Bricklinked a 10179 and wonder if I can use it as a basis for 75192. The cockpit, gun turret glass and 'chess' table have all appeared on Bricklink. As have the grey mast riggings at an affordable cost. Though I think I'd go with Scottish Dave's engine mod. No need to buy a radar dish because I'll do the square TFA version. Currently got a DBG one.

I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks Theo, hadn't realised that was there. I was kind of hoping there was more in common. Though I'm not bothered about the internal structure colours so I can probably make changes/saves there.

I am Bricklinking old Falcon to new Falcon myself, and comparing the parts lists (from rebrickable.com) there's A LOT of parts which have changed colour. I believe this is because sets these days use coloured pieces internally to help you locate and orientate, so it's been modernised.

Still, about 50% of the pieces are not common between the models so be prepared to buy a lot.

Costing me about $370 for the additional parts, not including the 6 new designs which I'm waiting (and hoping) to appear on Lego's Bricks & Pieces site in February.
I've made 4 Bricklink orders and only have the 1 Lego Bricks & Pieces order to go for 450 of the rarest parts ($95).

Note that I have more than just the 10179 to source parts from, so yours might cost more.

Hmmm, seems cheaper just to sell your old Falcon and buy the new one :grin:

I Bricklinked the old one too.

I just keep adding onto the brick collection what I need to build another model.  So I can't build multiple models at the same time but I have the required parts to build the AT-AT, AT-ST, Clone Turbo Tank, TIE, Venator, Super Star Destroyer, and Millennium Falcon.

Would it make sense to buy some sets in lieu of purchasing all parts on Bricklink? See what current sets have the parts you need, especially if they have a high proportion of the needed parts in the set's inventory. Even if you only use half of the parts, you are still breaking even. I think Rebrickable can help with seeing what sets would help supplement those needed parts. You might need to create a Private MOC with inventory of the parts needed first. Otherwise you can go old school and just browse inventory of current Star Wars sets for parts similarities. Worth looking into in my opinion, as this will also save on shipping costs from Bricklink stores.

That's a good idea.  Doesn't work this time sadly. 

Just ran the remaining list through Rebrickable. There's no existing sets that contain more than 25% of the parts I require, and all the sets listed are more expensive than just buying the pieces from Lego directly.

Here's an update for the Bricklinkers.

I placed my last part order yesterday at LEGO Bricks & Piecex for parts which were not as readily available on Bricklink.

I also emailed LEGO asking about the availability of the new cockpit window pieces. They tell me that the cockpit window pieces will never be available to purchase individually as LEGO are not licensed by Disney to sell them.   Major disappointment.

Not sure what I will do for those last few pieces. Can't justify spending over $100 on them. Thinking might need to MOC something, maybe blend in the original 10179.
