Review of Lepin 05132 UCS Millennium Falcon Fake of LEGO 75192

Finally we got a review on Lepin 05132 UCS Millennium Falcon which is a clone of LEGO 75192. Lepin managed to release this set a month after the launch of the original. First thing the Lepin fans spotted would be extra 1000 pieces of parts compared to the original. Rumor had that would be a display stand but that had been debunked after we finished building the set without the stand . We didn’t compare the manual against the original so couldn’t tell whether Lepin increase the parts count by using small parts for some of the steps. Please support the original whenever you could.

Box of Lepin 05132 UCS Millenium Falcon
Those of you who ordered from Aliexpress would be shipped without the box. Though you may negotiate with the sellers to include the box but that would increase the shipping cost. The box art is a direct copy of LEGO. Lepin 05132_001Lepin 05132_002
Came with four inner boxes. The coke bottle is for size comparison. There is no trolley unlike the original. Lepin 05132_005
The display plate with “Star Plan” wordings. The minifigures were good to keep. Lepin had up the game in their minifigures offering.

Building the Lepin UCS MF
There are 17 numbered bags for you to build according to the steps on the manual. However the bag number 6 and 9 were confusing as there is no indication on which number is which.
