Henchman Builds the Millennium Falcon

Seeing as how I’m still an unwed, kid-less man child, I spent my Christmas bonus this year on the LEGO Millennium Falcon. Despite my life-long love of LEGO, I’ve never owned, let alone built, one of those big, $100+ sets. Time to correct that and live a little dream. The Millennium Falcon clocks in at 1,329 pieces and looks pretty impressive on the box.

To sort-of honor the death of Carrie Fisher, I started my project the other night.

My saga begins…

I may keep all you henchies up to date on the build as it goes along. I like to savor this sort of thing. I didn’t even start building until nearly a week after I bought the LEGO. I just liked having the big, ominous box sitting on my desk. And rather than build the set in one sitting, I’m going to do a bit per day to stretch it out. It’s just more fun that way.

It’s good to have hobbies.
