This Star Wars Fan Spent a Year Building an Epic 7500-piece LEGO Millennium Falcon – TIME
In anticipation of The Force Awakens, one fan decided to build a model of his favorite Star Wars spaceship â€” 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 Soloâ€™s famous ride.
Measuring in at nearly three feet in length and weighing 22 pounds, the Falcon replica doesnâ€™t spare any details. â€œMy 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,â€ Marshall Banana wrote. â€œAnd there was still enough space left to include a detailed cockpit (with 4 seats), gunnerâ€™s platform and a lowering ramp.â€
