Han Solo famously told Luke Skywalker, in the original “Star Wars” film, that his beloved Corellian freighter “may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts.” A new Millennium Falcon Lego set definitely looks spectacular and judging by a reveal from the famed toy company, she does have it where it counts.

In order to make that Kessel Run that Solo bragged about, she’s gonna have to haul more than 7,500 pieces across the galaxy, as Lego called the ship one of its biggest models ever. And the price tag reflects that, at a whopping $800.

For anyone who has put together previous versions of the Falcon which felt large and intricate enough, the new set is updated with a number of details on the exterior and interior. Fans can swap interchangeable sensor dishes and crews to model the ship for a particular “Star Wars” film: either “Empire Strikes Back” with Han, Leia, Chewbacca and C-3PO, or “Force Awakens” and “The Last Jedi” with older Han, Rey, Finn and BB-8.

The interior hold also features the classic Dejarik holographic game, in which C-3PO has to advise R2-D2 to “let the Wookie win” after Chewbacca shows what a poor sport he can be.

The new Millennium Falcon will be available Oct. 1. “The Last Jedi” hits theaters Dec. 15.
