It was roughly this time last year when we first talked about the Full Scale Falcon project. It is exactly what it sounds like: a group of dedicated Star Wars fans are attempting to make a 1:1 scale Millennium Falcon. They’ve made progress, and they packed the cockpit up and took it to Geek Media Expo in Nashville, Tennessee last weekend to prove it. While they were occupied, a couple of familiar faces stepped into the cockpit. Game of Thrones actors Kristian Nairn (Hodor) and Amrita Acharia (Irri) took a few pics and since I guess Chewbacca and Hodor are roughly the same height, you can definitely tell it’s full scale.
The replica cockpit is impressive enough – even without the special guests. They’re taking the time to get the details right. I’d love to just sit in the captain’s chair and soak it all in.
Check out more pictures of the cockpit and see a video tour after the break.
