  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Not a Car, Don’t Care: You Have to See This Custom, 7500-Piece Lego Millennium Falcon

Recommended Posts

Yes, you can buy a Lego Millennium Falcon kit in stores, but one master builder has constructed a replica of the galaxy’s most famous Corellian freighter that goes so far above and beyond we just had to share.

Built by Hannes Tscharner, this Falcon is based on the version that appears in the latest Star Wars installment, The Force Awakens (note the rectangular sensor dish). It’s comprised of an estimated 7500 pieces; weighs 22 pounds; and is 32 inches long, 21 inches wide, and 7 inches tall. For reference, the official kit—which runs $149.99 at lego.com—has 1329 pieces, and is 18 inches long, 12 inches wide, and five inches tall.

The internal framework required to support the build means the custom ship doesn’t have an interior, but it does have illuminated drive units and blaster turrets, and also features a working boarding ramp and detailed cockpit with four seats for Rey, Finn, Han Solo, and Chewbacca (or maybe Unkar Plutt and his thugs).

The entire thing took a full year from planning and brick gathering to completion, says its creator, whose Flickr feed is filled with other amazing Star Wars customs, including a Jawa Sandcrawler—you can check them out here, as well as see more photos of the Falcon. And now that we’ve properly geeked out, we’ll get back to our regularly scheduled car-based programming.
