7,500-piece LEGO Millennium Falcon took a fan one year to build

While most of us would be pleased with ourselves for simply completing LEGO’s new 1,329-piece Millennium Falcon, Star Wars fan Hannes Tscharner aimed for something more — much more.

The brick fanatic devoted a year to planning and constructing his own mind-blowing 7,500-piece replica of Han Solo’s legendary ship.

“My main goal was to present the model in a flying position, which was a huge task,” Tscharner writes on Flickr. “Due to its internal framework it was not possible to include an interior, but I was able to fully lighten the model. And there was still enough space left to include a detailed cockpit (with 4 seats), gunner’s platform and a lowering ramp.”

The finished model measures 32 inches by 21 inches by 7 inches, and weighs 22 pounds. For comparison, the LEGO Star Wars Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon — the biggest official model — consists of “just” 5,195 pieces. One of those will cost you anywhere from $6,200 to $10,000.
