A Lego replica of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars has delighted fans as they revel in the movie franchise's newest installment, "The Force Awakens."

The 7,500-piece Lego creation was planned and created by Marshal Banana, who posted pictures of the craft to his Flickr page this month.

"It's the piece of garbage we know and love from The Force Awakens, right down to the rectangular radar dish that replaced the round one lost in Return of the Jedi's second Death Star," Mashable commented.

The Lego Millennium Falcon measures nearly three feet long and weighs a hefty 22 pounds. It took Banana about a year to create the design, gather the pieces, and assemble the thing. Most impressive are features like the lights, gun turrets, cockpit, and boarding ramp.

Commenting fans like The Brothers Brick said that the custom design is far larger than the largest Lego set ever sold.

"At 7,500 pieces, Marshal’s Millennium Falcon uses fully 50% more parts than the 5,195-piece official 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon (the second-largest LEGO set ever sold by part count, and arguably physically the largest set ever)," the blog wrote.

"It’s clear from this top-down photo that the builder has spent some significant time with various reference materials — the plan view shows just how closely his model lines up to the shape and details published in books like The Essential Guide to Vehicles and Vessels. Unlike the fairly bare belly of the official LEGO set, Marshal Banana’s version has a fully detailed underside."
