Lego Millenium Falcon – What’s Included?
This is a massive set, containing 1254 pieces in total. You’ll need the characters to recreate the famous scene and they are all included. Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Princess Leia, Ben Kenobi, and even Chewbacca are all included as minifigures. For fighting there’s 3 lightsabers, 3 blasters and a crossbow. And the ship, the massive Millenium Falcon, as twin flick missels, rotating quad laser cannons, a deteachable cockpit cover, an opening hull and more.
Lego Millenium Falcon – Who Is It For?
So the question is, “should you buy this toy?” Well for starters, if you’re on a limited budget, this might not be a good idea. Or at least start saving up now. We told you it was a large set and that means you’re going to have to pay for it. It’s priced at over 100 dollars. That’s not to suggest you don’t get your money’s worth. You do. This is a durable set that is very impressive once assembled.
And with the size of the set, even after the ship is assembled there is a lot of space inside the Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon for the kids to play around. The roof has folding panels so it’s easy to see all of the inside areas. If there is a common complaint, and it’s a minor one, it’s that the cockpit is too small.
As with almost any Lego set there’s something else you should consider. As cool as it is, there’s a lot of small pieces, so naturally it’s not for kids under three. And this is not the easiest Lego to assemble either. In fact, it’s fairly complex, which would explain why Lego recommends it for kids ages 9 to 14. We’re not saying younger Star Wars fans won’t enjoy this. They will. They just may need a little help from an adult to avoid getting frustrated while putting it together. That’s OK too. What a great way to spend quality time with your child.
Lego Star Wars Millenium Falcon – Any Cons?
OK, enough gushing. Let’s talk about some problems. You would expect, after so many generations of Star Wars sets, that the figures would start to look a little better. They don’t, except for the Darth Vader which now is more detailed. And when we listed the minifigures earlier did you notice any absences? Droid fans sure did. There’s no C-3PO or R2-D2. OK so that’s not a deal breaker or anything but it would be nice if they were included.
The bottom line is that yes this is a costly toy, but the Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon is worth the price. For kids it’s challenging but not overly hard to assemble. But don’t just limit this one to the children on your list. Adult Star Wars collectors will love it too.
