Paul Romein and Greg Radzimowsky have created an incredible stop action animation of their building of the Millenium Falcon in Lego. I suppose that if you go through the effort of making your own Millenium Falcon, you have to take it for a test drive, right?

Have you built your own starship? Have you flown one lately? How is your technique for stop motion animation? Contribute to the discussion in the comments, and add your photos and video to the Make Flickr pool.

    Awesome video. I loved the Pacman bit and the lowering of the roof panels.
