or press release maybe?

I still think the Castle is the best build within its 4k-pcs category, but... I hoped for Taj Mahal record being broken with it. Now that we know it didn't happen, I'd be even more surprised if it doesn't happen for the new Falcon. There's a legend to this set (I mean 10179) that even I can't ignore, and I'm no SW fan.
I agree the Disney Castle could have been another contender for largest set and would have been had it been complete. Its interesting that of that top 8 the biggest 3 are complete Taj Mahal, Millennium Falcon and Firehouse Headquarters. The others Tower Bridge, Big Ben, Disney Castle, Death Star and Assembly Square all are part of something bigger.
^ Yes that's another reason I want to see the Taj Mahal piece count record go. About 2000 of the parts have one stud or no studs.
I would like to see a true champion that has both the weight and numbers to back up it being the biggest set of all time.
