Building the LEGO Millennium Falcon Recreated in CGI

I’ve always wanted to try and build that Ultimate LEGO Millennium Falcon kit, but just never had the time or patience to do it. Never mind the fact that the kit is so collectible, that it sells for over $2,000 these days. Happily, we can now live vicariously through a 3D animation of the build process which just hit the web.

Francisco Prieto spent over 3 years to compose this stop-motion clip, modeling all of the individual LEGO components from the 5,000+ piece model using 3ds max, along with the help of V-Ray. The animation runs just 3 minutes, 35 seconds long, and is well worth the watch.

Excellent animation there, Francisco. I can only imagine the actual assembly of one of these takes days or weeks, not minutes.
