TLCB staff have yet to see the new Star Wars – The Force Awakens movie, but from the reactions to it from some of the proper blogs you’d think that Jesus Christ himself had returned to earth.
Unfortunately this hysteria can only mean one thing for the prices of LEGO’s past official Star Wars sets. With the 2007 official LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon set already fetching absurd money in the nerdier corners of eBay, if you want a Lego version of the iconic spaceship it’s probably best to build your own.
Marshal Banana has done just this, taking over a year to construct his incredible 7,500 piece, 10kg Millennium Falcon replica. There’s some trick third-party lighting throughout the build and a few wonderfully edited photographs of the Falcon in flight too.
