This was a Christmas gift for my son.
Although the Millennium Falcon is a great Lego model it does have many cons.
First it is 985 pieces and it is challenging to build. My son has put together models bigger then this one but he had trouble with this set. The pieces are very fragile as you are building and they can easily fall apart. He had to have help from an adult.
The neat features are the Falcon's roof opens to show control panels and it also has an escape pod. I will warn though that the roof is very senitive and you have to open and close it just right.
The set also comes with some pretty good mini figures: Han Solo, Chewbeeca, C3PO, Snowtrooper and Princess Leia.
When the model is finish it is fairly large, about 16 inches in length. The set itself is fairly realistic to the real Millennium Falcon.
I want to stress this is NOT a toy to play with. It is very fragile. In fact when we were finish building it we went to pick it up and the fall apart right in our hands! Like I said very fragile.
It makes a good addition as a display collector's item but I would not recommend it if a child wants to play with it. It will lead to frustration. I don't want to tell people I won't buy it, beacuse it is a great collector's item just the best thing is to build it, then CAREFULLY place it on a shelf and leave it alone.
