Make your own colorful Lego Millennium Falcon #LEGO #SarWars
Check out the full potential of LEGO with this Millennium Falcon. Who needs the kit when you have the know-how? Via Polygon:
The latest object of lust for hardcore fans of both Star Wars and Lego is the $799.99 Lego Millennium Falcon. The kit is 7,500 pieces, and is sold out just about everywhere.
But what if you can’t afford that massive beast, or just can’t find one? One fan’s homemade take on the design is making the rounds on Reddit again, and it’s both beautiful and very, very colorful. This is what it looks like when you try to stay as close to the design from the movies as possible while using whatever colors you happen to have around the house.
And it’s amazing.
Even without trying to coordinate the colors, the creator of the design said that it cost $500 to get the pieces he needed from various sellers. These images were originally published in 2015, but feel timely once more due to the frenzy around the official model … which now feels remarkably boring in comparison to this beautiful beast.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
