It is Tuesday and it is time for the latest LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon teaser!
LEGO’s official Twitter account has posted an image of a huge pile dark bluish grey and tan 2×4 bricks with the caption:
“The biggest LEGO set to date is the 5,922 piece Taj Mahal but, brace yourself! The newest LEGO Star Wars set is 1,619 pieces bigger!”

This is supposed to be another clue to the set that will be revealed on Force Friday (September 1st) which has been touted to be the LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (75192).
Since this set is 1,619 pcs larger than the LEGO Taj Mahal, the piece count for this behemoth will clock in at 7541 pcs, which makes the new Millennium Falcon (75192) 2,344 pcs bigger than the previous one (10179).
Could it be that the new rendition of the fabled Falcon is larger in size or will the additional 2000+ pieces go towards an interior?
The image from Twitter shows two piles of bricks, one tan and one in dark bluish grey. It makes me wonder if the set that will be announced on the 1st of September will be a LEGO Totoro instead.
