Ok, so there are countless individuals that are truly dedicated to the Star Wars fan club and in so joining this fan club they must buy all Star Wars paraphernalia, special edition/extended version movies, figurines- including the entire LEGO sets. I'm not talking about the normal TIE fighters or x-wing fighters--kids stuff. Im talking about the MILLENNIUM FALCON! this 5,195 piece, $500 set takes an experienced team of 7 a record of about 3 hours but i would assume that it would take maybe 15 hours by yourself, maybe 20 who knows. i cant even imagine if you made a video of it. you would have to be an incredibly dedicated fan of the series. But I think that these guys just go WAY above and beyond anyone else that has attempted this. Not only did they:
a. buy the $500 set
b. complete the 5,195 piece set
c. make a video of the construction of this set
d. make a video of the construction of this set COMPLETED BY LEGO MINIFLIGS REENACTING 'ACTUAL' EVENTS!

I can confidently say that a very unnecessary amount of time was spent in the making of this video but i think it was definitely worth it. Maybe that's just the Star Wars nerd in me but I can say that I have a higher respect level for the guys that took the time to make this 12 minute video. Not to mention the building time, I think I saw somewhere that it took 38 hours, but that could have been someone else. Nonetheless, at least a full work week was spent dedicated to George Lucas. I approve. And i dont know if you noticed or not, but that movie is pretty dang accurate to how it really happened. Well done guys, well done.
