Today Turkey put the finishing touches on the Lego Millennium Falcon!
He added the radar dish:
There is also an alternate build for the radar dish to correspond with the sequel trilogy, which I think is pretty cool:
There were a few stickers in the set, including this big one…you’d think a set as high end as this one wouldn’t include stickers, the bane of every Lego fan’s existence, but you’d be wrong!
Here’s a look at it from all four sides:
And a few more angles:
The whole set is massive (no, we don’t actually know where its permanent placement in our home will be):
This was a fun build as we look forward to a big family trip next summer!
The penultimate build of the Lego Millennium Falcon!
Today Turkey added the turret to the top of the ship…he was really excited to build this part!
He also built a Mynock, which seems too cute to be a threat:
Tomorrow the radar dish will be added, and then the ship will be done!
Today’s build came from the penultimate bag of pieces for the Lego Millennium Falcon. Bunny began by putting together Old Han Solo and Rey:
I’m sure we’re breaking all kinds of laws of temporal mechanics having Old Han Solo in the same set with Young Han Solo!
Here’s a look at the full cast of characters:
Bunny had an important and recognizable build for the ship today…the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon:
There’s room for four…but only just barely!
Tomorrow Turkey is going to start on the last bag of the set, and he’ll finish it up on Christmas Eve!
Ladybug added some more plating today, including a sticker to show some wear and tear on the Lego Millennium Falcon:
Today Ladybug built two of these…docking ports? Round things?…one on each side of the Lego Millennium Falcon:
Here’s a look at the builds from yesterday and today attached together and placed on the Lego Millennium Falcon:
The section that Moose built today will attach to another section tomorrow, and then the whole thing will go on the Lego Millennium Falcon:
Today was Bunny’s turn to add vents to the Lego Millennium Falcon…the ship is really recognizable now!
Today Ladybug added another section with a vent to the Lego Millennium Falcon similar to what Turkey built yesterday:
Finally, some new minifigs for the Lego Millennium Falcon (does BB-8 count as a minifig?)!
Turkey also built some parts that include cool round vents, and include elements that detach easily so you can see into the ship:
