If The Last Millennium Falcon Wasnt Big Enough... Posted by Richard on August 31, 2017 at 09:35 PM CST:
I got to witness the reveal of one of the largest LEGO® sets ever at a private preview many years ago. It was HUGE. It took up a good sized table, and looked too large for one adult to carry, let alone a child. Someone at the LEGO Company looked at that and though "We need a bigger one". I spotted this new one over at Gizmodo. News link.
