This gave rise to the suggestion that the next UCS set would be an updated replacement for the highly sought after 10179 Millennium Falcon set. The tenacity of this rumour has gained ground now that The Brick Fan has posted a speculative report on its existence. Pinches of salt are being doled all round, but remember that this is the same site that pretty much confirmed the 75159 Death Star, five months before LEGO confirmed it so clumsily.
