We all have our favourite spaceships or starships from the myriad of sci-fi franchises out there. If you just happen to be a Star Wars fan (and, let’s be honest, who isn’t?) then you are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing your favourite space-faring ship. Many Star Wars fans might say that their favourite ship would be the X-Wing, TIE Fighter, Slave-1 or even the intimidating Star Destroyer. However, for me, it was and always will be the Millennium Falcon, a ship that made me fall in love with the franchise in the first place back when I was a kid. Since the first time it appeared on the big screen, it has evoked child-like excitement in me up until this day.
With the new Solo: A Star Wars Story currently showing in theatres, I was given the opportunity to unbox the LEGO Star Wars Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, a set based on the version of the Millennium Falcon we see in the new movie.
This is the seventh iteration of the iconic spaceship LEGO has released and the first one to steer away from the iconic grey colour scheme. The ship also comes with minifig versions of the characters from the film, including younger versions of Han Solo, Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian.
If you absolutely love all things Star Wars, like me, and have a passion for collecting those little bricks or you are just looking for something that can do the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs, then this could be the LEGO set to keep your eyes out for.
The LEGO Star Wars Kessel Run Millennium Falcon is available on Takealot.com at R 2,929.
