It is currently the largest LEGO set ever produced by LEGO, with the same dimensions as the 10179 Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon, measuring 33" (84 cm) long by 22" (56 cm) wide and 8.3" (21 cm) tall. However, it has over 2,000 additional pieces due to a more intricately detailed design. The set manages to aesthetically balance exposed studs and tiles, and has a more accurate and clean shape. It also includes many more detailing colours such as dark tan and olive green. The designers said that they also made sure to include curved pieces where necessary, overcoming the blocky look of the previous UCS model. This set also includes two small interior spaces inside the ship, which can be exposed by removing small sections of the exterior plating. The set also introduced a new, more accurate cone piece for the cockpit, which is printed and currently exclusive to the set. It also contains two exclusive minifigures, new variants of Han Solo and Princess Leia. It is also the first set to include the newly introduced Porgs.
- With 7,541 pieces, it is currently the largest LEGO set ever produced, with 1,519 pieces more than the now third largest LEGO set, the 10189 Taj Mahal, which has 5,922 pieces.
- Following the early release of the set to the LEGO Shop's VIP members on September 14, 2017, an unexpected positive response to the set cause it to be quickly sold out. Over 2 months after being released to the public in November 2017, the set is still currently sold out.
