This is kind of bittersweet news. Although I had no plans on buying one, it looks like the LEGO Company actually stopped production of LEGO set # 10179, the Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon that’s a part of the Star Wars line.
Bittersweet because it’s the second-largest LEGO set ever produced, and the largest Star Wars set produced – we are talking over 5,000 Lego pieces. It’s also built to minifig scale down to the cockpit. It has quite a few interesting features (mostly Technic-related parts) with moving parts including an extending/retracting boarding ramp. It also came with Han Solo, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Princess Leia minifigs. It was only surpassed pieces-wise by the Taj Mahal, # 10189, which has nearly 6,000 pieces.
