Having seen The Force Awakens, I really want to watch all 6 of the other Star Wars movies again.  What better way, than curled up on the couch with a cozy BB-8 fleece blanket, and a cup of Hoth Chocolate in a Chewbacca mug… and possibly a plate of Imperial Star Destroyer crackers.

I am still processing the movie… so more on that in a different post.   Instead, today we are thrilled to share M4P guest writer and LEGO® “Master Builder” Peter Guenther‘s review of the ship whose appearance in The Force Awakens made me squeal with joy.  Take it away Peter…

The Force Awakens, LEGO®  has released a new version of the Millennium Falcon, set 75105.  Weighing in at an impressive 1329 pieces (plus a few extras, just in case), six minifigures plus a droid, and a price tag of $149.99, is this set worth the investment?
