Here’s something you might not know about the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo and Chewbacca’s ‘fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy’. Its design is based on a partially eaten hamburger. In fact, during filming of Star Wars in the mid-nineteen seventies, the Industrial Light and Magic special effects team would refer internally to the strangely shaped ship as ‘The Pork Burger’. Legend has it that George Lucas was concerned the original design for the Falcon was too close to that of the ships in the British-Italian sci-fi series ‘Space: 1999’. Thankfully, inspiration can strike at any time. Lucas was having a burger for lunch and set it down next to an olive on a stick, and that kickstarted the creative process that resulted in the ship that we’ve all come to love (unless you’re Darth Vader, then in which case, it might be worth stopping reading now). And here’s another good fact – the Lego Millennium Falcon is consistently the biggest selling Lego Star Wars product there is! This version is the edition that’s released on the back of the recent ‘Solo’ movie, and clocks in at an impressive 1414 pieces, as well as coming with six minifigures: Han Solo, Chewbacca, Qi’ra, Lando Calrissian, Quay Tolsite & a Kessel Operations Droid. Want one more Millennium Falcon fact before we leave you to press ‘Add to cart’? 2007’s Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon came in at an astonishing 5,196 pieces, the biggest of all time at release. And if you’ve got one in your loft, it’s worth some serious money at collectors markets…
