Building the Millennium Falcon!

This post has been dedicated in memory of Carrie Fisher….

What’s up Star Wars fans?  I didn’t get a lot for Christmas, but what I did get, was absolutely awesome!

Here is a list of some of the things that I got:

  • Nerf Rival Zeus
  • Batteries for said Zeus
  • Overwatch: origins edition
  • Battlefield 1

Now, for what you clicked on this post to see, let’s talk about the Falcon!  You would never be able to guess how many pieces are in that set!  There are exactly one thousand three hundred twenty-nine pieces!  BAM!  WHAT!?   This is the biggest set I’ve ever received and I built it all by myself.  When I got my Lego AT-AT, I only built part of the body, and my mom built most of the rest.  The only set I ever built by myself was one of those small sets, UNTIL NOW! BUM!  BUM!  BUM!  (pause for dramatic affect)

The minifigures in the set include:

  • Han Solo

  • Chewbacca



  • Rey


  • Finn


  • BB-8

Tell me that ain’t cute.


  • Tasu Leech, the Kanjiklub ring leader


  • Kanjiklub gang member


  • Wait a minute, what’s Spiderman doing here?

The droid


The fuzzball

This is probably my favorite set, mainly because it’s the biggest set I’ve ever gotten, and I built it 100% by myself.

To Glue or Not To Glue?

Hello, Readers!

For this post, I am going to talk about the pros and cons of gluing Legos together.  This has been a long time debate in my family.

The “Pros” of gluing Legos together when you build them.

  • The Legos stay together better when you glue them.  Today, I regret that some of the Legos I built were not glued because most of them fell apart eventually.
  • When glued, Lego creations are more durable when you play with them.
  • Glue helps Legos stay together when you just want to put them on display.
  • If you have a baby brother or sister, they won’t be able to break your creation as easily if glue is holding them together.

The “Cons” of gluing Legos together when you build them.

  • If you glue your Lego creation together, you won’t be able to take it apart later.
  • You can’t modify the object by taking off a piece here or there to put them on differently.  Glue takes away some creativity of the toy.
  • Last, but not least, you can’t take it apart then build something totally new out of it.  Gluing totally limits what you can create and how you can play with them.

Tip:  You can use Krazy Glue (a.k.a. Kra Gl) to fix broken legos as shown below.
