Even if you’ve never seen a Star Wars movie, you’ll probably recognise Han Solo’s iconic Corellian YT-1300 light freighter, reportedly able to make the Kessel Run in less that 12 parsecs. It’s the most recognisable ship of the series and, ever since I first set eyes on this impressive kit, I’ve been quietly saving up money to get one of my very own.
This version of the Millennium Falcon is based upon the one from The Force Awakens and boasts a massive array of features including a detachable cockpit, rotating top and bottom laser turrets, two spring-loaded shooters and entrance ramp. The inside hides even more secrets with a space for two minifigures to man the guns, a hidden smuggling compartment, seating areas and a detailed hyperdrive.
The set comes with six minifigures and their assorted weapons – Rey, Finn, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Tasu Leech and a Kanjiklub Gang Member – as well as a BB-8 Astromech Droid. If you want to see some photos of the build process, read on!
