    As a Star Wars fan since my childhood and seeing rumours of the Millennium Falcon landing nearby I knew it was my destiny to explore it. We took a BBQ and some beers into the forest of Endor and set up camp. After fending off a few horny ewoks and getting ourselves a couple of hours sleep we woke up to the sound of the Imperial March music coming from my alarm clock. We set about our quest nervously but knowing that fear is the path to the dark side......

    Kudos to @bhg & @kevin arnold for getting in here and sharing for some tips, providing lifts, beers and generally being awesome! Also thanks to @bigbadash for having the foresight to remember his Jedi cloak, and everyone else who came along for the ride, @soylent green @Monkey @Adders @Gabe & @Lenston, definitely one of the most fun places I've had the pleasure to explore! The force is strong in this one.....

    1. You’ve never heard of the Millennium Falcon?
    27110336361_17711c280f_b.jpg

    2. It’s the ship that made the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.

    3. She'll make point five past lightspeed. She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid. I've made a lot of special modifications myself.

    4. It's true. All of it. The dark side. The Jedi. They're real.

    5. Chewie, we're home....

    6. On entering the ship you would hope to find it like this and maybe sit down for a game of hologram chess or something but it's not quite like that

    7. It's a trap!
    26572943034_8e0d5882f5_b.jpg

    8. The reality is that it's made mostly out of wood and is held together with scaffolding poles

    9. However you can just about get into the cockpit

    10. Laugh it up, Fuzz ball.

    11. Punch it

    12. This bucket of bolts's never gonna get us past that blockade.
    26574467573_b301c763de_b.jpg

    13. Would it help if I got out and pushed?
    27145732226_89442889c9_b.jpg

    14. You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought ... (Be careful with the context....)
    26583222434_7505147525_b.jpg

    15. The level of external detail is amazing
    26574337023_d332cb03e4_b.jpg

    16. Even the ground on which the ship is sat is fake
    27145721876_a90fb93659_b.jpg

    17. What a piece of junk
    27145685416_881ae2a229_b.jpg

    18. She's the fastest ship in the fleet.
    26573134134_fe7cac2ce1_b.jpg

    19. She's the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy!
    26574326863_f81b8964ce_b.jpg

    20. Finally a quick shot looking up towards the Ahch-to set, the planet where Luke Skywalker was living in exile at the end of The Force Awakens

    21. Other vehicles sit waiting to be uncovered, a land speeder amongst other things, not sure what else yet but maybe we will find out soon enough!
    27083572182_c8a9eed266_b.jpg

    22. The Dark Side of the Force is the pathway to many abilities some consider to be… Unnatural.
    26585736124_5d7514eea2_c.jpg

    Remember...the Force will be with you, always.

    That's all folks :thumb
