HAPPY NEW YEAR DEAR FRIENDS AND BRICK FANS! MAY YOU A FABULOUS YEAR OF 2020!!
Today is the beginning of new year and also new century, and we gonna talk about the new released set -- LJ99002 the Millennium Falcon. Though the new Star Wars film The Rise of Skywalker does not hit good score, it won't influnce fans' affection to the Millennium Falcon.
Now let's cut the long story short and see the set.
Seems like complete restoration. But box photos may not be accurate.
A heavy copy with some errors, omissions and color differences, etc.Parts package
Compressing former 10 separation packs into 4 was not a serious problem. However,all common large plates are in pack 1. So there are actually only 3 separation packs. And they do not follow the sequence, but just open the next pack when you cannot find the piece you need. At least they are in separations, right?...
The quality is surprisingly excellent! No matter printing accuracy, material and cutting are quite precise.
Basically complete restoration to the former sets.
It is so genius that the new android D-0 (similar to detergent :)) was restored! Beside are C3PO(left) and R2D2(right)
Chewbacca and new character Boolio "Hey pal, what's up?" However, Finn has changed his hairstyle?? And the bag he carries is different. (Does the manufacturer have any complaints about Toad Finn's trying to swallow Swan Ray?) Lando wears two colored cloak. "Don't even think about that, lad!" "..."
Views from different angles
The parts perform well which are neither too loose nor too tight, and the gaps between are even.
Though there are many scratches on the transparent parts on the cabin cover, the printing is fine.
The opening way of the top cover for the new version is much more reasonable. The details are all restored with excellence.
I have tried several collections from LE JI and feel pretty good. This time LE JI challenged Star Wars series which has many special minifigures and also performed well. But it's weird that the hairstyle of FINN is not restored.
