    this thread should be subtitled: "in which @FN-3263827 does stupid things with Legos".

    lately my Lego peoples have lived in Ninjago City. Hux rules from the tea room, while Ren and Admiral Raddus eat sushi on the rooftop with Moroff, and the rest of the First Order patrol the levels and keep the canal safe from Rebel scum.

    the Rebel scum live in the hanger with Poe's X-wing and the Y-wing and some other random bits and pieces from Takodana and the like.

    but today, the First Order is tackling its biggest acquisition in the galaxy (the biggest acquisition there is to be had, actually), for Ren and Hux have captured the Millennium Falcon. unfortunately it's in 7,541 pieces. so it looks like they've got a lot of work to do.

    to that end, they have enlisted the help of some random other critters and have captured a number of Rebels to assist with the labor:

    You finally managed to acquire it then. (falcon 2)

    (pod) YIPPEEEEE

    & how did you get that up three flights of stairs that is most impressive.

    Oh & I would have voted for the second option as well.

    hahaha ~ i rolled it! it was pretty rough (especially around the tight corners), but slow and steady did the trick. : D

    i got this at cost (instead of the heinous markup) because the package was "damaged".
    the box is definitely scuffed up, but probably no worse than i'd've made it myself after a while.

    Oh my god, that's so cool! You're so lucky to have this set, which I'm not sure if and when I'll get it. Not to mention the fact you have Ninjago City too: you've got one jealous Jedi right here!

    When you rip open bag one, it'll be the perfect oppurtunity to say this:

    He already is.

    Also is it just me but the idea of Raddus at the Sushi counter is just brilliant.

    So because the box is a little beat up I assume all the pieces are there you got it at cost price damm thats a good deal.

    hahahaha ~ i knew you guys would be excited to see this, @Lock_S_Foils and @The Hero With No Fear.

    i'll definitely take some pictures along the way and share the build.
    don't forget, though, i'm a total n00b at this, so it's going to be slow-going.
    i'm seriously almost terrified to open the box at this point. hahahaha

    @Addi Ras, yeah, it's brand new--never been opened, so it should be aces inside.

    Random question, but do you have the regular Millenium Falcon from TFA? If yes, then could you do a size comparison?

    It's funny that the last three non-UCS Millenium Falcons combined cost less than this monstrosity!

    noooo, i literally only have Kylo Ren's shuttle, Poe's X-wing, the Silencer, a Y-wing, and some little pieces here and there.
    from what i've seen on the youtube videos, this is the same size more or less as the old UCS Falcon, and considerably bigger (2x?) than the TFA one.

    and Hux is already displeased with this disorder!
    box number one, bag number 9 appears to have not made the journey up the stairs. XD

    that appears to have been the only mishap.
    i think one of my Ninjago City bags also busted in the box.
    fortunately it's just one, so there's no mixing or anything.

    i've only sorted out the bags labeled no. 1 and i already need a drink.

    That's pretty awesome, @FN-3263827. But it's outrageous how you're using Lego Kylo Ren! :p

    I wish Lego wouldn't be so expensive and so useless. Haha! On the other hand I have everything what I need: Kylo and his TIE. But if anyone wants to give me a Lego set, then I'm all in for it... :rolleyes:

    he's quite content (and very well fed)! hahahaha

    yeah, i honestly don't know what i'm going to do with this thing in the long run.
    i literally just want to build it for the sheer fun of doing that.
    afterwards, i'll have to find another home for it (pretty much like all my Legos, really ~ hahahaha).

    I think they're cool to put on display, if you have the room. They're also cool to use in a diorama, like what I did for Scarif and am planning to do for Crait.

    i'm watching Star Wars, of course! : D
    TFA just finished and now Rogue One is on.

    and it's getting dim in here, so probably no more pictures tonight.
