Step one cut a hole in the box @ 08:27 am

I took some pictures of phase one of the Lego Millennium Falcon last night. Opening the box and checking out the contents. I didn't actually open any Legos because Gabe would have strewn them all over my house in no time. Initial reactions were, "holy crap that's big" and, "this is gonna take me years to put together!"

The box weighs about ten pounds. The manual is 312 pages, and spiral bound. It's a monster! There are 5195 pieces wrapped up in about 25 unnumbered plastic bags. The piece is rated for kids 16 and older. It's gonna be a major challenge.

Great pics! I cannot believe that they actually think a 16 year old could successively assemble something so complicated. Where will you assemble it? Dining room table? (I was just wondering.) Gabe is a cutie!

I haven't fully decided yet. I may have to build it at my buddies house, as Gabe will most likely destroy it :)

Good thinking. It will be a year or more before Gabe can reasonably be expected to understand keeping away from priceless and fragile family heirlooms. :) What about Themabbi's house? Is that an option? I am hoping that you will fully document each phase (photos and written description) and then Angie can make a scrapbook of the Great Baker Millenium Falcon Construction Caper!
