Don’t be surprised if you’ll see the Millennium Falcon speeding its way on the street of NYC anytime today – a brick-built version of it actually. Because beginning this Friday, you might be seeing this jaw-dropping model of the Falcon like you’ve never seen it before. Sure, we have seen this iconic ship in LEGO form for so many times already: from keychains to micro fighters, and UCS sets to a more recent Kessel Run version. But I bet you’ve never seen it done, or even rode on one like this.
In celebration to this year’s most anticipated Star Wars event, LEGO Master Builders are adding outrageous fun to this year’s May the 4th celebration with this one-of-a-kind visual treat to celebrate Star Wars Day, and the upcoming release of Solo: A Star Wars Story on May 25. Taking 396 hours to build and coming in at 20,300 LEGO bricks, this extraordinary MOC is something that you can actually ride on. This pedicab replica of the Millennium Falcon measures 9 feet long and 6 feet wide, comfortable enough to accomodate two passengers. I bet Han and Chewie will have a blast giving this Falcon a try.
But beyond from being just an eye candy, this custom built LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon pedicab is part of a larger, and nobler global campaign from Lucasfilm and Star Wars: Force for Change. Because for every selfie or groupie that you take together with this amazing MOC and posting it via your social media channels including #RoarForChange, Star Wars: Force for Change will donate $1 that supports UNICEF’s humanitarian and life-saving work for children around the world. Every public post, like, or share together with this LEGO custom MF pedicab together with the hashtag, means another child is helped and saved somewhere in the world.
So be sure to be on the lookout for this amazing custom LEGO creation, have your camera phones ready, and be sure to #RoarforChange! May the 4th be with you all.
