LEGO builder Marshall Banana spent a year planning and building this 7,500 piece replica of the latest version of Han Solo’s ride. It’s one of the most beautiful pieces of garbage I’ve ever seen.

Marshall Banana’s version of the new Falcon (via The Brothers Brick) is bigger and better than both of them.
