When I was a boy I had the good fortune to have an older brother who was artistically inclined and could take toys and models and customize them with paints, lights and he also could repurpose old toys and create amazing things. He was and is brilliant at this. Around 1979 it was not uncommon to see booklets with punch out cardboard pieces that enabled a kid to build a refitted Starship Enterprise circa Star Trek: The Motion Picture or the Cygnus from Walt Disney's The Black Hole. These were fun rainy day products that for their time were quite extraordinary, but none of them hold a candle to the Star Wars Millennium Falcon And Mega Model by Fun Studios International.
Basically for a low suggested retail price of about $17.99 in the U.S. or $23.99 in Canada, hobbyists ages 7 and up can build a big and detailed Millennium Falcon from high quality cardboard complete with moving parts and compartments that open up and feature explanations for what is inside.
That shortcoming aside and provided you have time to fully read and carefully assemble the model, Star Wars Millennium Falcon And Mega Model by Fun Studios International offers a fun challenge for Star Wars fans of all ages and is easy to recommend.
