This Millennium Falcon Lego Amazon Prime Day deal will have you hyperdriving Star Wars-style for 20% less.
The Rise of Skywalker Millennium Falcon Star Wars set is on sale right now at Amazon for $127.99. (Note that this price applies to the "frustration-free" style of packaging, which breaks up the build into several plastic bags for ease.)
While sighting the Falcon at such prices is not uncommon, now is still a great time to jump in one of Space.com's best Lego Star Wars sets. The 1,351-piece spaceship is top-rated on Amazon and performed well in our testing - check out our Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon review to see our full thoughts.
The set is also much more affordable than its $800 Lego Star Wars Ultimate Millennium Falcon counterpart, which we reviewed recently. What makes this value set stand apart is not only the sheer price difference, but also the number of minifigures you'll get for your kids to play as droids, bounty hunters or other types.
Fan favorite newer droids D-O and BB-8 number among the set, along with Boolio (who loses his head), Finn and classic characters Chewbacca, Lando Calrissian, R2-D2 and C-3PO. (We're puzzled why Han Solo is not included, however.)
As we noted in our review of this Millennium Falcon set, the spaceship screams classic Star Wars and is one of the coolest spaceships in sci-fi. While Rey once claimed the vehicle is nothing but space junk, the iconic spaceship was a star of the classic and sequel franchises (among many other Star Wars spinoffs), meaning your kids likely know the Falcon just as well as you do.
Building is a fun challenge for fans aged nine and up, as long as you're willing to be fussy with the panels and to work with a somewhat delicate set. Red pieces set the spaceship version apart from the Millennium Falcon 2015 model, and the blue and white Kessel Run Millennium Falcon model.
Other features of this set include a removable canopy with room for two minifigures, a hidden compartment for the inevitable smuggling, and battle-ready features including a turret and two spring-loaded shooters. We also like that you can put it together in a few hours and move it around the house without the need of special equipment, unlike the larger (if impressive) Ultimate Millennium Falcon version.

For a more realistic look at Millennium Falcon design, Amazon also has the Lego Star Wars Ultimate Millennium Falcon available for $800. While pricey and not on sale at the moment, our review of the set classified it as one of the best Lego sets ever, due to its impressive details and scale.
