Life after the Millennium Falcon

We saw The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi yesterday evening. I loved the story (despite the many plot twists), plenty of nods to previous movies but enough originality as well. And great special effects. Just a bit too much comic relief (must be the influence Darth Disney, the mighty Sith lord who wants to sell plenty of cute fluffy toys) and some battlescenes where a bit too far fetched for my taste.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

I did watch it, as a huge fan, like a kid in a candy store! Loved every moment of it. It’s a beautiful film!!!! I actually cried 4 times as childhood flashed before my eyes!

But agree on the Disney bits and kept saying, right, i’ll tuck that bit in the Disney box, now let’s get back to Star Wars please, but ultimately it was (for this huge Star Wars fan) an emotional rollercoaster and a visual spectacle all rolled into a good script with some really good acting (always hit a miss in the Star Wars galaxy lol!)

interesting earlier comment on Kylo Ren being a spoilt brat not knowing what he wanted. That was Luke in the episode IV and V - just on the light side so obviously a standard coming of age thing in the galaxy :)

I think it ranks amongst the best of the franchise. You really don’t know how this is going to end...

@Sparky, it's been some time since you built your Millennium Falcon, did anything ever compare?

I'm building one now after the sadistic other half got me one for Christmas. Probably about half way through now (step 684 of 1,379), but I've stalled a bit with other stuff going on.

The images don't do justice to just how big this thing is!

Monster, innit?

Certainly my favourite to date - because of its complexity and, of course, the subject which is a superb craft.

Waitng in the wings right now (plan to finish the DeAgostini X-Wing first) are two contenders:  the new Ultimate AT-AT, and Titanic - another of my favourite subjects and Lego's largest kit yet.  Really looking forward to both of those.

My brother in the NT is building this. I think it is about 1.5 metres long.

Ps. Looking rather dapper there Sparky.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

I think I'd lose my marbles building that!

Actually, no!  The nose design just doesn't work for me, although I appreciate it's probably the best implementation at that scale.
