I finally got around to building a LEGO Millennium Falcon. This one I bought off of eBay, the entire ship was brand new in the bags, and the minifigs were replaced with older versions. So I didn’t include the figures in the images below.
I have to say, I enjoyed this build way more than I thought I would. I know it’s the same design they’ve had for awhile, but it seemed to have a ton of playability.
The inside was really spacious, and I marveled at all the different areas that you can have scenes. The way the top fans open was ingenious as well. The cockpit was a disappointment, as was the fact that there isn’t an interior hallway connecting it to the rest of the ship. But… I 100% understand that there are tradeoffs to be made in order for LEGO to design such a funky looking ship.
Seeing this set makes me really want to the UCS Millennium Falcon, which is now fetching $1,000-$2,000 on eBay. Oh well. Maybe some day.
