Lego Timelapse: Millennium Falcon

There is one thing I like to do to keep the kid inside me alive. Okay, well there’s probably more than one thing, but whatever! Yes, I still like to buy Lego sets every now and then. It’s fun to take a break from everything else and simply build something awesome.

Now that I’m older though, I have certain self-imposed rules I follow. I only buy the Technic sets because they are more intense, and I only get the Star Wars sets from the original trilogy. Yes, I have standards when it comes to building Legos…what a nerd right?

I’ve wanted this Millennium Falcon for a long time now. It reminds me of the giant toy my friend had when I was a kid. If you’re a guy you know it. The top came off, you could stand your men up inside. It was the bomb.

So when my wife asked what I wanted for a belated birthday gift, this was the answer. I started to build it on Monday night and then realized…this set is huge, with 1254 pieces…so why not timelapse it?

I took it apart, got everything ready and started shooting a frame every 10 seconds. It took three and a half hours to complete! Lyla helped a little bit and Eli was there to cheer us on a few times.

I hope you enjoy this. The music is from Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. Also see some stills below of the final product.

    Loved the section where you were building one handed while holding Eli. Now that was skill and love in one bundle. Hope you enjoyed putting that together. And I am still envious you got this!

    That looks sweet! I see the thing tools off at the end, have you tested out the hyper-drive?

    I’m pretty sure I have to come over and get little smushy hugs from little Eli now. What a cutie! Oh, and the legos are cool, too. 😉
