Tonight I went over to Brian’s house to film Built from Bricks. It has been two weeks since I last went over to his place and he had done a ton of work on the Millennium Falcon. He was on the very last bag. I knew this because I had been watching his livestreams as well as his Instagram feed showing his progress. I decided that I would open my own Millennium Falcon and built it with the kids. Mine was considerably smaller than his. His is 7500+ pieces and mine is 696. Mine is also the very first Millennium Falcon that LEGO made back in 2000.
After college I was buying LEGO toys like crazy. I would order them online and have them shipped to me. It was always my intention to save them for when I had kids and when those kids were old enough to play with LEGO and appreciate Star Wars. Back in April we went on a family trip to New Hampshire. I brought along an X-Wing fighter from 2000 and we built that together. It was fun and I was looking for the next set to build.
when Brian originally bought the new Millennium Falcon I dug through my LEGO Star Wars boxes and found my Millennium Falcon. I bought it over to start off the Livestream on the day we worked on the new set for eight straight hours.We opened our last livestream on the set with my completely built Millennium Falcon as a joke. Then we set about finishing the new one. Which happens in the video below.
