The newest Star Wars movie, Solo, actually showed that the origins of the Millennium Falcon had her covered in a sleek blue and white paint job. I’d like to think that if you go back a few more years, her factory finish looked a lot like this awesomely LEGO Classic Space redux from BeO Johansson. A classy makeover of the original Ultimate Collector’s Series Millennium Falcon (not the new version we reviewed), the blue and trans-yellow color scheme is packed full of nostalgia, helped with some fun nods to the old space sets from the 70s and 80s, such as the rear wing.
Although this version of the UCS Falcon doesn’t feature an interior (unlike the new version we reviewed), the cockpit, the builder has done some nifty upgrades to the cockpit, outfitting it with period-appropriate telemetry, AKA old-school computer elements.
Of course, the crew is suitably retro also. I particularly the yellow spaceman C3P-0 and the small, brick-built R2-D2. Exactly which of the other spacemen are Han, Chewie, Luke, and Obi-Wan and/or Leia may have to remain a mystery, however. If LEGO had the Star Wars license in 1977, the world would have been a much different place.
