To start off you get an instruction manual that ranges to be quite a number of pages, and possibly looks like a small book. And while it may seem intimidating, you’ll be happy to know that the pages not only contains all of the steps in detail but actually comes with some interesting information regarding the stress testing of the lego pieces as well as some designer notes and interviews.
You get about 17 lego groups of bags with 7451 pieces which are placed randomly but sorted pretty nicely. And while the usual Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon from previous years may or may not contain this depending on the variant, the new UCS Falcon comes with four boxes separating the bags and each with a memorable quote from the A New Hope and Return of the Jedi which will surely please any Star Wars and possibly lego fans. Star Wars fanatics will also be pleased with any of the best Star Wars commercials.
Moving onto the actual build of the Lego Millennium Falcon it starts off with the standard Technic Frame as like all the previous lego sets of the Millenium Falcon. It gives the build a better stability and apart from that you’ll need about 20 or so hours to completely set up the entire piece as per the Millennium Falcon review from many different customers.
When it comes to the design as well as the minifigures, the set of characters you get may vary depending on which model you get. But the few figures that may catch your attention are the double Han Solo minifigures, one from Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and another from the Sequel Trilogy as well as The Force Awakens. You will also find other figures ranging from Princess Leia, Chewbacca, C-3PO, Rey, Finn, BB-88 as well as a couple of porgs in the UCS version. And to make it even better, all of them come with astounding detail and some even feature double sided heads with a breathing mask on the opposite end. However, the Chewbacca and some other figures like Finn come with the same design as seen in previous Star Wars Sets but paired with accessories like Chewbacca’s traditional bowcaster and Lando with his blaster and elegant cane make it all the much better.
Aside from that, you also get stickers as like every other detailed Lego Set ever, which do make your design much better looking and perfectly showcase worthy.
Having prices around $160 and varying depending on which model you get, the Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon makes for a pretty great Star Wars gift for either a friend or yourself. You can even pair it with the Luke Skywalker Force FX Lightsaber Replica to make for a better collection. And so considering that you or your friend is someone who is willing to buy lego sets and collectibles , the Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon is definitely worth the price.
While there are many other collectible Star Wars items like the Xbox 360 Star Wars Limited Edition, being able to build an entire lego set taking your time upto 20 hours and seeing those minifigure lego versions of the same characters you admired on the screen throughout the entire Saga, has a fun of it’s very own. And so if you’re one of those Star Wars Fans who likes collecting items like these or rather a Trekkie as some prefer, please try getting your hands on the Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon sets, for it will definitely be worth it.
