Over the past one year, sci-fi fans have seen numerous Star Wars-themed inventions while waiting for the release of The Force Awakens. But there’s one crazy fanatic, who has redesigned the iconic spacecraft Millennium Falcon with 7,500-pieces of Lego. Plus, it is integrated with functioning lights, gun turrets, cockpit, working boarding ramp and finely detailed underside for more realistic touch.
Lego enthusiast Marshal Banana has spent the last one year building this this replica of the latest version of Han Solo’s ride, using 7,500 plastic building blocks. We must say that it is the most beautiful replica of Star Wars spacecraft we’ve ever seen- even better than the official Lego version. The official Lego set for The Force Awakens’ Falcon consists of 1,329 pieces, but it doesn’t look as hot as Banana’s model.
Being bigger than the official Lego model, this version of the Millennium Falcon is nearly three-feet long and weighs nearly 22 pounds. To maintain the model’s structural integrity, the creator has brilliantly reinforced its interior with Lego and wiring. Although the interior is not quite identical to the original spacecraft, but its exterior is genuinely authentic due to its striking layout, adorned with different-colored plating
The build isn’t the largest so far, as the world’s largest Millennium Falcon was created for May the Fourth. But Banana’s Falcon is actually larger, more detailed and beautiful than the largest Lego set ever sold i.e. 5,000-piece Millennium Falcon.
Before this Banana has also drawn all the attention back in 2011 for the stunning Star Wars-inspired Lego Jawa Sandcrawler that’s complete with a fully-lit and modeled interior. He is a true Star Wars fan and knows very well how to pay epic tributes to his favorite franchise.
