This is most definitely the spacecraft you’ve been looking for. If you are a fan of the Star Wars franchise, then you have no doubt dreamed about owning your own Millennium Falcon. The ship was the hunk-of-junk pride of Han Solo’s, and the vagabond took Luke and Leia on countless missions thanks to the craft. Now, one fan in Japan has made a rather impressive model of the Millennium Falcon, and it even levitates too boot.
Twitter user Hanaki Masatoshi shared his creation with the Internet earlier this month. The mini-model can be seen floating above a set platform, and you half expect to see Chewbacca sitting in its co-pilot seat. The creator didn’t need the Force to make the canon-compliant build; Hanaki used a magnetic system created by Crealev which makes objects lighter than 20 pounds levitate.
There’s no word on how the intrepid fan may the build, but there are plenty of covet it for their own collections. What would you do to get this sweet build for yourself?
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit US theaters December 16, 2016. Directed by Gareth Edwards, it's the first of the new standalone features from Lucasfilm and Disney, which take place outside the core "Skywalker Saga" of films noted by an Episode number. Rogue One tells the story of the small band of rebels that were tasked with stealing the plans to the first Death Star. The story spins directly off the opening crawl from the original Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. In that crawl, it read: "Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire. During the battle, Rebel spies managed to steal secret plans to the Empire’s ultimate weapon, the DEATH STAR, an armored space station with enough power to destroy an entire planet."
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is set between the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and shortly before the events of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. In the film, resistance fighters embark on a daring mission to steal the Empire's plans for the Death Star.
