Following the release of the latest Star Wars film, one fan has taken his devotion to the franchise to the next level, building a 10-kilogram, 7500-piece Lego Millennium Falcon spaceship.
It took Hannes Tscharner, who lives in Switzerland and goes by Marshal Banana on Flickr, more than a year to plan his creation, collect the pieces needed and put it together.
Mr Tscharner wrote on Flickr he had “always wanted to build” his own version of “the coolest spaceship in the galaxy”.
“My main goal was to present the model in a flying position, which was a huge task,” he wrote.
The model does not include an interior “due to its internal framework” but does include a detailed cockpit – with four seats – a gunner’s platform and a lowering ramp.
Mr Tscharner’s model is also lit up throughout, using Lego Power Functions pieces.
The largest Millennium Falcon Lego set available for sale has 5195 pieces and was released in 2007 for $US500.
It is now available on eBay and Amazon for several thousand dollars.
