This Star Wars Fan Spent a Year Building an Epic 7,500-piece LEGO Millennium Falcon

1 minute read

This replica of the Millennium Falcon can’t help save the galaxy far, far away, but it will still give you all the Star Wars feels.

In anticipation of The Force Awakens, one fan decided to build a model of his favorite Star Wars spaceship — a 7,500-piece LEGO version to be exact. The builder, who goes by Marshall Banana on Flickr, said it took him a year to complete the intricate rendering of Han Solo’s famous ride.

Measuring in at nearly three feet in length and weighing 22 pounds, the Falcon replica doesn’t spare any details. “My main goal was to present the model in a flying position, which was a huge task. Due to its internal framework it was not possible to include an interior, but I was able to fully lighten the model,” Marshall Banana wrote. “And there was still enough space left to include a detailed cockpit (with 4 seats), gunner’s platform and a lowering ramp.”
