While it’s not something I do very often, I find very few activities as satisfying as building something. Be it a piece of furniture, a jigsaww puzzle, or a complex spreadsheet, I just really like putting things together. There’s nothing like the feeling of taking a step back from a completed project and thinking “I made that.” That said, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I really liked LEGO as a kid.
Actually, I still really like LEGO. It’s just that I have such a tiny condo, and there would be absolutely nowhere for me to put any completed LEGO projects. And that, my friends, is 100% the reason that I don’t have this bad boy:
The LEGO Millennium Falcon is a kit made up of over 7,500 pieces. The idea of sitting down with this behemoth and spending an entire weekend (or more??) putting it together makes my pants get a little tighter. And it’s huuuuuge! I looked up pictures of it to see how big the finished model actually is, and it’s like twice the size of a baby. Massive! I’d have to buy a new condo with an extra room just to display this thing!
Star Wars LEGO was one of the core obsessions of my early teen years, and back then I would have killed a man to get this kit. I might still have to kill a man to get this, as it costs a whopping nine hundred Canadabux. That’s roughly the same amount of money that I spent on my current PC. And as much fun as it would be to build this sucker, it’s just not worth dropping that kind of scratch on.
But it comes with LEGO porgs! LEGO PORGS!!!
