Wow doesn’t quite cover it. Even the time lapse used to show the LEGO model of the Millennium Falcon being built is just not enough to realize just how many parts are there and how much time this would take. The patience that it would require is immense and the effort would at least be somewhat impressive. I’ve no doubt looking at the video that there are schematics for each section but it would still take a massive amount of time to put every section together and then finally assemble the entire thing.
Looking at how it was started one would have to work from the ground up almost literally. The interior framework would have to come first so as to give some structure to the Falcon, while the outer structure would have to be built around it. Each piece would either have to be right on the money when you put it down or there could be a lot of backtracking that could take even more time. It would also be highly frustrating I’m sure.
Making an error on something this size initially seems like it would be easy to fix, but in truth it probably requires taking apart whatever you just did in order to fix the problem and then get back to the section at hand. If you’re a true LEGO enthusiast then this would be an ideal challenge for you. If you’re a Star Wars fans as well then this would be one of the best sets ever. The model is just huge, encompassing an interior that is actually designed to hold the LEGO figurines that come with it and provide a view into the interior of the ship.
The Millennium Falcon is one of the most iconic ships from the Star Wars franchise. Just looking at it in comparison to several other ships it’s not the prettiest one out there. It looks like it’s been patched up and put together with parts from at least a dozen different starships, but it’s reliable when it counts and has been one of the most popular scifi vehicles for a long, long time. It’s the ship that helped to win the day for the Rebellion and the same ship that’s been able to provide rescue for a future Jedi Master and has helped to blow up a Death Star. Out of all the other ships it’s probably one of the most well known throughout the franchise despite being one of the most underpowered.
Those quad cannons on the top and down below are great for taking out TIE fighters but are kind of useless against anything bigger. That’s where the Falcon’s speed always came in handy. The freighter could duck, dodge, and evade like a ship of a much smaller size and its pilots knew a few tricks that would fool even the Imperials. Yep, the Millennium Falcon has been one of the most well known and respected ships from the Star Wars franchise for a long time, and for good reason.
