Designed as part of the companies Ultimate Collectors series, the new Star Wars set is a complete re-working of the original Lego Millennium Falcon Ultimate Collection Edition launched in 2007 and and the time included around 5,000 pieces. And it's the stuff dreams are made of.

The set will eclipse Lego's last heavyweight champion, the Lego Taj Mahal set which came with 5,922 pieces.

If you can track down one of the new record-breaking Falcons before it flies off shelves, you'll be getting a box so large it apparently comes with wheels.

City make sensational Raheem Sterling offer as makeweight for Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez
Another player who could potentially be involved in any deal, this is what one source is telling us, is Sergio Aguero . At least they still have the young-up-and-comer Theo Walcott to fill his boots if/when Sanchez leaves.

The ship features removable hull panels, a lowering boarding ramp, concealed blaster cannon, 4-minifigure cockpit with detachable canopy, interchangeable round/rectangular sensor dishes, upper and lower quad laser cannons, and 7 landing legs. This fantastic model also features interchangeable sensor dishes and crew, so you decide whether to play out classic LEGO Star Wars adventures with Han, Leia, Chewbacca and C-3PO, or enter the world of Episode VII and VIII with older Han, Rey, Finn and BB-8! For scale, here's a picture of my cat Midna sitting inside a mostly completed LEGO Tower Bridge set, which includes 4,295 pieces and measures almost three feet long and just under a foot high. But for fans of the recent film, you'll also get the older Han Solo, Rey, Finn, BB-8 and a couple buildable Porgs. It's the sort of thing Lego has become known for on its Ultimate Collector Series sets, which tend to go above and beyond the usual playsets when it comes to accuracy.

Rear compartment features the engine room with hyperdrive and console, 2 doorways, hidden floor compartment, 2 escape pod hatches, engineering console and an access ladder to the gunnery station. Fans can buy it in stores starting October 1.
