Whatever you used to play with as a child, what if I were to suggest that everyone labels some toys in particular that get recorded in history and constitute healthy conversation topics even long after those toys have gone out of fashion? One such toy is “Lego”. Lego has actually become so popular that they have Legoland parks at various locations around the world right now; which attract thousands of visitors from across the world every year. And Star Wars has also been especially popular all this time, among geeks and non-geeks alike. (Maybe you have heard of the “Star Wars Kid” and that Star Wars cartoon made up entirely of text characters?) But the Star Wars franchise has been appropriated in several projects – including the above mentioned Lego. And you can purchase and make the Lego Millennium Falcon today!
The Lego Millennium Falcon is nearly 3 feet long; it costs $499 and it is made of over 5,000 pieces! Look at pictures of it on the Internet at your leisure. The Millennium Falcon has been listed as the biggest Lego set ever sold. There are other perks you can get from it: it comes with its own mini-figures (Chewbacca, C3PO, Snowtrooper, Han Solo, Princess Leia); you can open the triangular plats on the top of the ship to see inside; and even pull out the starboard hatch lid and lower the boarding ramp, thus allowing your favourite Star Wars members to get on board!
