For many Star Wars fans, the original LEGO Millenium Falcon is one of those holy grail items. Unfortunately, that original set is impossibly rare and expensive now. Fear not, however, since LEGO has you covered.
This ultimate Millenium Falcon set really does live up to its name. It’s the biggest, most detailed and complex Falcon LEGO has ever made. If you build this, it has to own a space in your home until the day you are brave enough to break it down again.
Just what are you in for? How does 7,541 pieces sound? If your answer is “a good time”, then you are in the right place when looking for your next big thing. If you’re looking for something to treat the Star Wars superfan in your life, be prepared for actual tears of joy. It hardly gets better than this.
Once the Falcon is actually complete, the number of its features is simply staggering. The hull is designed to open up so that the interior becomes visible. Inside you’ll find all the iconic areas from the films: the holographic game, the seating area, and, of course, the cockpit. There’s plenty of technical, geeky stuff too, including the engine, hyperdrive, and other things you didn’t really see in the original hero set.
Now that we are at nine feature films in the Star Wars universe (yes, the prequels did happen) the Falcon has been in a lot of movies. One really great thing about this Falcon is that the set spans the classic and modern era of Star Wars. This is reflected in the included minifig crew that has both the original and new crews.
Yes, it’s a very pricey Star Wars toy, but take good care of it and you’ll probably make a profit 20 years from now.
