The End Of An Era
I received this set for Christmas last year from a very kindhearted co worker who knew how much I loved STAR WARS and LEGO. He wanted me to have a modern version of the Falcon for my collection. I never had any intention of purchasing this model myself. So I had to figure out what to do with it. What I decided to do was back date it to an Episode IV version of the "fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy", complete with all A New Hope figures. I also wanted to give it a smooth hull look and a complete interior. So with a massive Bricklink order which doubled the cost of the original model. I went to work. I hope that you all enjoy my efforts and that I was successful in transforming this into an original looking Millenium Falcon. This build was bittersweet for me, for unless LEGO comes out with a set from the first six movies that I can't live without, This is the final STAR WARS model that I will ever do. I was there in 1977 and have loved Star Wars all throughout my life. Now it is over and my collection is complete. Jimmie

Quoting Tarakona, Drago-toa love it! I love the little training drone idea, the bb8 head is great! one suggestion might be to use a bb9e head instead, it's a little less colorful.
Sounds like a great idea. Thanks for the great suggestion, the like and great comment as well. Stay safe and keep on brickin.

Quoting The One And Only Cx_vortex ™ Kind of sad post. But great build!
Yes this was very difficult for me to admit that my years of actively collecting STAR WARS is over. I have many great memories and I will treasure them always. Thanks for the kind words and the like.

Quoting BATOH rossi great interpretation, Jimmie! just as "remote" can serve the head of that Disney-droid! remember ... you must have confidence in the Force... one day, perhaps, at Disney they will realize that a logo is not enough to recreate the magic of Lucas, and maybe the balance in the Star Wars universe will return ...
You are much more forgiving than I ever could be. Disney completely burned their bridge with me on how they handled the EU. No, the memories I have will have to suffice. When I need A STAR WARS fix I will watch Episodes I-VI or reach for a novel in my EU collection. Thanks for stopping by with a like and great comment. Stay safe and keep on brickin.

Quoting Jack Sparrow Great mods you have here! I've been a SW fan my whole life. Then Disney happened. Now I could give a hoot. I like the personal touch you have here. :-)
Amen to that my man. Thanks for the like and the great comment Have a great day and keep on brickin.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Fantastic! Love how you used the new tiles to round things up. I couldn’t agree more about the Star Wars franchise. I did not care for episode 7 and I positively can’t begin to use the language to describe how I felt about episode 8. I’m definitely not going to see # 9. This is the version of the falcon I know and love. Excellent!
I have not seen any of the Disney releases Of STAR WARS and never will. As a Fan of STAR WARS and the EU I cannot forgive them for reducing the EU to Fantasy. For me " the franchise died when the ink dried". STAR WARS will always be near and dear to my heart(The first 6 movies and the EU). Disney produces STAR WARS fantasy.

Quoting Cameron Wilson Awesome work! I really like the use of BB-8's head!
Yes it seemed to make a good remote . The rest of BB-8 is in my junk drawer with the rest of the figures from this set. Thanks for the like and great comment.

Quoting Sven ;o) All the bucks you had to pay at Bricklink were worth it! You did a marvelous job on this Star Wars icon to increase the level of detail everywhere. Fantastic work and great to read your personal story behind this build. Jimmie my brother, it was so nice talking to you this weekend. Really enjoyed every single minute of it and Julia too. Sending you and Jill a bunch of hugs greets and much love over to NC and wish you a great start into the new week. Take care, stay safe and healthy our beloved NC family.
Visiting with my family on Skype was just the remedy the doctor prescribed for what ails me. I too enjoyed every moment of our visit. I am soo happy that you like my version of the Falcon.Much love, hugs and greets to you and Julia from Jill and I in NC. I will finish my replies to these great comments then go take some pictures now that the camera battery is recharged. Stay safe and have a great week.

Quoting Fell Skyhawk While I hate the new movies, I do like some of the things they have and they can be re-purposed for the stories I know and love. Like I use the T-70 as the XJ X-wing. Rey makes a decent Jaina Solo figure. The Resurgent class makes more sense than using the outdated Imperial class so I retconed in my fanfics that the Anakin Solo was one of those classes instead. Though I don't have any of them in LEGO, save the T-70. Anyway, this is an amazing build, excellent work. Great job.
Thanks for stopping by with the like and the kind words and great ideas. But sadly I have no intention of giving Disney any of my money the way I funded Lucasfilm over the course of a lifetime. Stay safe and keep on brickin.
