A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away, there was a Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar, and it had a tiny Millenium Falcon model in it…

It was a cute little model, but there wasn’t much of what you’d call “detail. And so, a few years later, came a second Falcon…

This Falcon also seemed a little light on detail, there wasn’t even a pilot! And so came the Third Falcon…

Then there was a new movie, with a new Falcon with minimal changes, but enough to justify another Microfighter…

And yet, it seemed like there was room for something… larger, more interesting, maybe with interiors. So much bigger…

All the Falcon would ever need, right?

Because where would you put a bigger one? One made to scale with minifigs? One with over 7500 pieces, the biggest kit Lego has yet made?

You know exactly where this is going…

Yeah, it’s messed up, but in such a good way…

And yes, I have a place to put it. Until I break it down so I can build it again.

On the down side, every Lego experience after this will be found wanting.
