Just like the First Order Tie Fighter, The Millennium Falcon Microfighter also belongs to Series 5. And let me tell you, it’s the Millennium Falcon alright. Just as cool, only smaller.

Significantly different than other LEGO minifigures is Chewbacca. Mainly because of his overall alien appearance of course. It’s a completely different mold and it looks very much like Chewy with his furry manes and bandolier.
He carries his iconic Bowcaster. Well, I say Bowcaster because that’s what it is supposed to be. But unfortunately, LEGO didn’t bother to create the actual Bowcaster. Instead, you get a normal crossbow. I know, most people don’t see the difference, but it is there if you happen to be a purist.
The Build & Features
Building a tiny Millenium Falcon is as awesome as it sounds and it looks absolutely amazing. The design of the Falcon is so different that building it is interesting right from the get-go. It’s just really cool to see how this model shapes up to become an actual tiny Falcon.
Although the color is mainly grey, there are a lot of little details all around the ship. Even the satellite dish is there. And it’s actually squared instead of round so you can tell this is the Falcon from the Force Awakens.
The cockpit is printed (there are never any stickers on Microfighters) and the seat which is meant for Chewbacca has a tiny little windscreen. I know that’s not very accurate but it gives the seat a nice and finished look.
The stud shooters on top of the craft resemble the iconic turret of the Millenium Falcon. And at the back, you get those awesome clear blue pieces that make for the engine exhausts. I do wish LEGO gave us all cylindrical pieces though. There are two bricks that are flat and square and I’m struggling to figure out why they made this decision.
The Millenium Falcon is a great little Microfighter and welcome addition to the collection. Overall it looks very good and resembles the Falcon really well. The blue of the engines look awesome and the stud shooters on top are great for playability. Chewbacca is a good minifigure and looks different than most.
