Lego Review Star Wars Millennium Falcon Microfighter

The Lego Star Wars Millenium Falcon Microfighter- 75030

She’s the fastest ship in the gallaxy

The Millenium Falcon has a long history – originally built as a light freighter, eventually it was heavily modified and turned into a Smuggling ship for Lando Calrissian.  But he lost it gambling to another pirate, the well known Han Solo.  Together Solo and his partner Chewbacca increased the folklore of the Falcon by aiding the Rebel alliance in numerous battles, including the destruction of both death stars.

At first I didn’t think I’d be much interested in this Lego Series, but after spending just a few minutes with the Microfighter Millennium Falcon, I was hooked.

This is a sturdy little Lego model that comes with a Han Solo minifigure.  It doesn’t seem like much.  Not the biggest model of the ship Lego has ever made, or the smallest. Day 21 of the Lego Star Wars Advent Calendar has that honor.

But it’s fun.  A lot of fun.  Fun to build and fun to play with.  The set comes with 94 pieces, which is sort of hard to believe because the entire model easily fits in your pocket or the palm of you hand.  But the pieces are mostly small 1×1, 1×2 and that kind of thing.

Since there are so many little pieces, this Millennium Falcon has a lot of detail.  Of course the Han Minifig doesn’t fit inside the cockpit (he sits on top of it instead), but it is there, as well as the radar dish on top, the colored engines for the hyperdrive in the back and even a mini replica of the guns on the top of the ship.

Instead of having 4 guns, there are only 2 flick missiles, but that’s OK.  Take a look at the photos and video and let me know your thoughts in the comments.  Do you own this set, or another one in the series?
