We Bet this Color LEGO Millennium Falcon Can Do the Kessel Run in 11 Parsecs

Why is it that spaceships in science fiction have a tendency to be grey or other blah colors? It makes little sense to me, given the fact that we love colorful cars. Heck, I drive an orange car myself. That said, it would have been nice if some of the ships in Star Wars were more vibrant. Take, for example, this brightly colored Millennium Falcon, built from LEGO bricks.

Artist and LEGO fanatic Mike Marrocco of Funk Blast Art created this amazing model, which does away with the drab shades of grey and replaces them with oranges, blues, yellows, greens, purples, and more. He says the build took about 25 hours, and cost him about $500 using parts he bought over on bricklink. I’m thinking if I tried, it would take me at least 100 hours and $1000.

Frankly, it seems much more likely that the Falcon would have looked like this, being cobbled together from bits and pieces of other ships, and other salvaged bits and bobs.

I’d love to see an entire Star Wars film populated with brightly colored ships like this. Can you imagine a full-color Death Star? That would be sweet – especially when it blows up. Amazing build, Mike!
