I have been interested in a Millennium Falcon kit but was holding back because of the price.(It was about €500) This was about two years ago.

Recently I saw another, cheaper Falcon for about €150, but I think this is a different, smaller kit, and unfortunately the only available Falcon.

Did LEGO really swap the Falcon kit for a smaller, cheaper version?

The Millennium Falcon has been so popular there appears there are six known sets, and seven versions. Four of which share the exact same product name.

Millennium Falcon, 2000 (7190) 600+ pieces

Millennium Falcon, 2003 (4488) Microscale version with only 87 pieces.

Millennium Falcon, 2004 (4504) 900+ pieces (New minifigures with the flesh skin colour).

Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon, 2007 (10179) 5000+ pieces

Midi-scale Millennium Falcon, 2009 (7778) 2nd microscale MF with 4x more parts then the 2003 model.

Millennium Falcon, 2011 (7965) 1200+ pieces

Millennium Falcon, Advent Calendar Day 21, 2011 (7958) 13 pieces

There also appears to be some Minifig variation, R2D2 and Darth Vader only appear once on the 2000 and 2011 sets respectively.

    The scary thing is, I have the first three on that list ;) Had small children when the UC version came out, so couldn't justify it :( And the 2011 one's close enough to the 2004 one that I can't really drum up the enthusiasm. Don't get me started on Slave I's though ;) Commented Dec 12, 2011 at 18:07

    There is also a Millennium Falcon in the Star Wars advent calendar.

    Just for curiosity, what is the difference between 4504 (2004) and 7965 (2011)? Commented Dec 14, 2011 at 8:29

    @abatishchev: A large difference in style, parts and overall price. The minifigs are also more complex/detailed

    @abatishchev: The outside designs are similar, but 7965 is about 30% larger and that space is used to have more "happening" on the inside. As Ambo100 said, the minifigs are also more detailed in 7965.
