Overview of the LEGO Millennium Falcon 7965
The Millenmium Falcon 10179 is the latest from a series of similar sets. It is the sixth version released since the first one in 2000. It is a classic set inspired by Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. This particular set is a large scale version with the 1,238 pieces needed to assemble the set and 6 mini figures of Star Wars Characters.
The interior features accurate placement of the control module of the Falcon. There are two seats leading to the middle turret next to two computers. There are also seats available for the crew located at the right when you view the model from the front. There is a compartment where you can lay a mini figure and later drop out. The left part of the hiding compartment features a gun turret where you can fit a mini figure and it can be turned 360 degrees.
The cockpit is mounted to the exterior of the Falcon along a slanted wall attached to the main body of the ship. This leads to a long cylindrical tube to a large gun turret. The body is surrounded by 12 slanted tiles giving it a sleek sloped look. The whole exterior mimics accurately that of a true model Falcon.
