10,000-brick Lego Millennium Falcon

10,000 pieces to build a Minifig-scale 
Lego Millennium Falcon
[Source: TheVerge] Lego's official "Ultimate Collector's Edition" of the Millennium Falcon is the second largest official set the company has ever released, with nearly 6,000 bricks. This version of the iconic Star Wars ship, comparatively, is comprised of 10,000 bricks — and that's without a roof to worry about. 
Titans Creations, a group of Singaporean Lego builders, spent two months planning and building the ship for Legoland Malaysia's May the 4th (aka Star Wars Day) event. The end result measures 110cm x 85cm (3.9 x 2.8 feet). 
Sure, it plays around with the canon — Leia and Obi-Wan casually hanging out together as Luke practices his lightsaber skills while various stowaways make cameos throughout the interior — but for a piece that's undeniably intricate fan service, why not go all out.
