LEGO Star Wars – Midi-Scale Millennium Falcon (7778) Review


LEGO Star Wars – Midi-Scale Millennium Falcon (7778): This one is actually a bit special to me. See I had (drunkenly) bought a lot set on Ebay because it promised there were some sets still in bags (2 and a 1/2 sets actually). I figured this would be nice to help keep reviews going on the site, plus it came with a bunch more bricks. As it turns out – a lot more. I noticed however there were some pieces clearly from a Falcon, and I found the instructions, and began to build. Sadly this was the remnants of the current Falcon (7965), and there was not enough in my library or with the lot to build it. Dismayed however I realized that there were some sections of the above Midi scale still intact, and that there were the parts of 2 different Falcons! I began to build out the Midi, and while some pieces I had to get from my collection and weren’t in the lot – the end result was my very own Falcon! (I did have to order online for stickers)


Time to Knoll: 14.5 Minutes


Time to Build: 36.5 Minutes




  • Pieces: 356 and 50 Steps – Manual (40 Pages)
  • Price: Not even listed on Lego and $169.99 on Amazon (my lot cost me 45 total for this set and more, and the stickers were 10 bucks including other parts, so score for me!)
  • Weight: 346 grams
  • Combo Points: (5X10X1X1) = 50 points
  • Volume (Based on Blob length/width/height): 48mm x 96mm x 102.4mm or 471.86 cm³ of course though the cylinder parts need to be separate so the full total is: 481.72 cm³




  • Uniqueness: 3 out of 5 Stars
  • Aesthetics: 5 out of 5 Stars
  • Fun to Build: 5 out of 5 Stars
  • Hoarding: 3 out of 5 Stars




What Else?

So you may know that there is a new Star Wars movie coming out this year. In honor of that I decided to update my Falcon replacing the radar dish destroyed in the original trilogy. Thankfully some folks have decided to take the few frames of reference and give us a nice digital render to go off of. (The fact that this comes from is surprising no one)


Now there’s actually some great pieces to replicate this, however most are simply too big to be in the scale – so I simplified. Below is the difference, and of course the file is provided here:


Of course though, this now sits on my own Falcon:



Remix: So I was wondering what to make with the interesting blend of colors and the splash of technic thrown into the mix. I decided on a blaster (no not Han’s blaster – that’s a bit of a stretch), but the engine pieces made me think of a gun barrel. As you can see though where the handle meets the barrel the connection is there, but it’s not exactly strong – so for the first time in the remix rules – I did actually add 2 pieces (remember my limit is I can add up to or remove 5 each) These pieces are just some structural Angle Plate 1X2 / 2X2 though and really it just makes it so it doesn’t fall apart easily



However aside from the stand being perfect and some non-traditional usages throughout, my favorite bit is how well it actually feels/fits in hand!



Final Thoughts: I also have to say that as kid growing up interested in Lego and Star Wars, having my own Falcon was a dream of mine, but even then the Falcon’s were these massive, very expensive sets, and it never came to pass. With that notion, plus the scrap heap origins of pulling this together – I feel I’m a bit biased in saying this is the only Falcon I’ll want/need, but I do actually enjoy the Midi scale here. I feel it’s not too small where detail is moot, and unlike the massive sets of my youth – this fits nicely in my display case. There’s actually some people on Lego Ideas trying to bring back some Midi scale Lego sets – so do sign up and back!

Final Score: 5 out of 5 Stars
