Streamer Finishes Epic Millennium Falcon Lego After 26 Hours Of Streaming
The Force is certainly strong with this one, as Twitch streamer Nathan "Stanz" Stanz has finally completed the behemoth task of building LEGO's Millennium Falcon. Streaming the whole process on Twitch, the project took the YouTuber 26 hours to finish.
LEGO, Star Wars, and video games are one of the most perfect trios out there. This intergalactic combo has led to some cracking games and LEGO sets throughout the years. You can't tell me that LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy was not one of the greatest local co-op games of all time. Not to mention there are still plenty more to come, as fans are still eagerly awaiting the release of Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. We wish we could say the same about the mobile game.
So, it's no surprise to see a heck load of streamers sharing their love for LEGO with their fans. One such streamer who went above and beyond was Stanz, who streamed his entire build of the LEGO Millennium Falcon, resulting in a 26-hour stream.
When Did Stanz Start His Stream?
On January 11, Stanz shared a picture of him holding the box for the LEGO millennium falcon Ultimate Collector Series, stating the stream wouldn't end until he had finished the build - and so began his mission. Opening up the LEGO marathon, Stanz excitedly emptied out the numerous LEGO bags that were included in the box, explaining that the whole set cost him $800 plus tax. He also estimated that it would take him approximately 20-30 hours to complete, but claimed that he wasn't aiming to beat any records, he was "just there to enjoy myself".
Stanz made sure to give himself plenty of rest in between building the set, as the whole stream took place over three sessions. He also didn't have to ask Obi-Wan Kenobi for help as his wife, Richelle, was on hand to join in and give him a well-needed break at times.
As well as the 7,500 LEGO pieces included to recreate the iconic Corellian light freighter, the set also comes with a number of characters from both the original and the sequel Star Wars trilogies. This includes: Han Solo (Young and Old), Chewbacca, Princess Leia, C-3PO, Rey, Finn, and two Porgs.
How Did Stanz React To Finishing The Millennium Falcon LEGO Set?
The saga finally came to a conclusion on January 12, as Stanz proudly displayed his newly-build Millennium Falcon in all its plastic glory. He triumphantly closed the whopper of an instruction manual that was included with the set. Screaming with joy he threw his arms into the air yelling "we did it!".
With such a fantastic accomplishment, it's safe to say that Stanz proved his love for the classic film franchise and his dedication to LEGO because "do or do not, there is no try."
