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.
