Poor sci-fi geeks, sitting behind their computers all day long, engaging in fiery discourse regarding imagined technology, fabricated theories, and make believe planets. How pathetic. Say, that reminds us, the Millennium Falcon kicks the ever living tauntaun mucus out of the Starship Enterprise.

Put your phasers on chillax for a nanosecond, Roddensciples. Yes, the Enterprise is a luxurious engineering marvel whose clean lines rival its speed and firepower, but like a Mercedes Maybach, it's just a little too polished for us. The Millennium Falcon, on the other hand, is a fifth-hand freighter akin to an El Camino beater with turbo boosters and a Gatling gun welded onto the hood. Much more our speed.

Now that we've established the basis for our fictional spaceship preference, let's move on to something far more important. Who pulled more galactic wool, Han Solo or James T. Kirk?

Numbers

5,195

Lego pieces that came in the Millennium Falcon Star Wars "Ultimate Collectors Series" set. It was the largest Lego set sold by the company, until the Lego Taj Mahal came along in 2008..

5,195 piece Lego set? Where we come from that is considered child abuse. The stress alone not to lose a piece would be freakin' unbearable.

You came in that thing? You're braver than I thought.

noun.     like space LSD, this psychoactive substance was smuggled off the planet of Kessel and past Imperial guards by Han Solo behind the controls of the Millennium Falcon.

Han describes this as the "Kessel Run" when bragging to Obi-Wan about the ship's speed in Star Wars (1977).

Fact

Han Solo won the Millennium Falcon after beating Lando Calrissian in the Cloud City Sabacc Tournament. It is rumored that Lando was slightly hammered at the time.

The List

A Popular MF!

Bed We know what you're thinking: "Would a chick really sleep with a dude who had one of these?" Depends on the size of his light saber.
Guitar Some things are neat, some cool, some pretty sweet. This guitar is so awesome that at first glace it seems nerdy, until you realize only one man should ever play it… Space Ace himself, Ace Frehley.
Cake First, how is this even a real show? Second, the way they touch every single millimeter of the cake while decorating it is nasty. Did this really taste good, or just look cool.
Life Size Model What breathes oxygen, but never gets their wieners wet? These guys. Holy sh*t!
Origami Creation Hey dude, you gotta piece of paper and want to waste five minutes of your life? Watch this.

Say what you want about sci-fi, but there isn't a red blooded American male that can deny the sheer badassery of the Millennium Falcon.

Hook up your kids, fellow geeks, or fan boys with this ridiculously cool MF'n book as a gift for the holidays. And by the way, "Never tell us the odds!"
