The folks at LEGO have outdone themselves. This LEGO interpretation of the Millennium Falcon is massive, highly detailed, and incredibly beautiful. However, it’s been going in and out of stock, so if you’re interested, be sure to place your order quickly.
• LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Millennium Falcon for $799.99
With over 7,000 individual pieces included, this is among the largest and most complex models in LEGO history. Measuring 33 inches long, 22 inches wide, and eight inches tall, this is a hulking LEGO set. It also comes with four classic mini-figs (Han, Chewbacca, Leia, and C-3PO) and three modern mini-figs (Aged Han, Rey, and Finn).
But the best part is that it’s not just the exterior that’s beautiful. Inside, you’ll enjoy representations of the holographic game of Dejarik, the helmet from Luke’s remote training, smuggling compartments, and much more.
My local LEGO store has this huge piece on display, and it was impressive to say the least. The scale at play here is truly hard to convey with just numbers. And as such, the level of fidelity achieved here is laudable. Any LEGO and/or Star Wars fan would be happy to display this in their home.
