A legendary starship despite its humble origins and deceptively shabby exterior, the Millennium Falcon has played a role in some of the Rebel Alliance’s greatest victories over the Empire. On the surface, the Falcon looks like a worn down junker. Beneath its hull, however, she packs many powerful secrets. Its owners have made “special modifications” on the freighter throughout the years, boosting its speed, shielding, and performance to impressive — and downright illegal — levels. The Falcon pays a heavy price for these tricks and add-ons. It can be unpredictable, and its reconditioned hyperdrive often fails. Its current captain, Han Solo, has even been seen to restart a failed start-up with a hard knock on a bulkhead with his fist.

Directly from the movie “Star Wars™ Episode VII – The Force Awakens!” SnapTite® Build & Play™ kit with all-new DuraMod™ Snap Design. No tools, paint or glue needed for assembly.
As a huge fan of the of the Fastest Hunk of Junk of the Galaxy, I couldn’t avoid getting the new Force Awakens Millenium Falcon Snap -Tite from my local Hobby Shop. Already pre-painted and with just 19 parts, you can have a nice display on your desk or your son or daughter could be flying the Millenium Falcon around the house.
The kit which measures slightly over 6” long comes with movable cannons, rotating antenna, retractable landing gear and lighted hyper drive engine that lights up. Since this is a ‘Dura Mod’ kit, the constructions is very sturdy and does resist a fair share of impacts. One of the engine grilles is the module in which the battery (included) goes in and the sound module is encosed. To avoid a muffle sound, the kit has small openings on the bottom as you can see on the pictures. There are some small openings on both escape pods. The flyby sounds are very nice and clear.
The landing gear in the extended position has some play. It snaps into place without problems though.
