Lego Fans Tricked By Counterfeit Kits

"Lagos, are more than a toy, their investment, the company that makes those little plastic building blocks pulled in more than five point five billion dollars in sales. Last year, they often sell legos in special kits, sometimes depicting famous movie scenes and they retire those kids after a while making them collector's items for fans and upping their value. But where there's money to be made, there are also scams. Let's go into the world of counterfeit. Lego sets with Stacey Vanek Smith and Sally herships from the PODCAST, the indicator planet money. Tom glasco lives in Dayton. Ohio is three kids and they all love Lego, which is how he got into trouble. He'd been looking for a LEGO ray resistance fighter for his son and so perusing facebook one day I saw an ad for it for what seemed to be a low. But maybe not too low of a price. The exiting was half price just thirty bucks. The pieces weren't the same quality and they didn't go together quite as nicely as regular legos Tom had bought what turned out to be a knockoff. Lego set a counterfeit on their own legos are just these little plastic bricks. You can see why it would be tempting to make. Counterfeits chronic air pot or an apple watch or something the biggest and most notorious. These counterfeiters is a Chinese brand called Leppin. It operates completely openly I mean you can visit the company's website Leppin, world dot com and you will see that its logo and Legos logo are almost identical. But if you end up buying a knockoff, you don't just risk getting a flimsier product you could also ended up costing yourself money down the line if you're planning to resell your legos later on to understand how the LEGO scams work I turned to a superfan Steve Elliot he is thirty eight and lives in Albany Wisconsin if someone posts like a big seven, hundred dollar. People will zoom in and look to see if they can see the legos stamp on the top of a brick, which is called a stud. They don't see it. They'll accuse them of it being a knock off products. The lego community is enormous. There are whole websites like brick picker, dot, com brick link, and facebook groups like star. Wars Lego collectors USA, and if you buy fakes even accidentally and try to resell them, you could get yourself banned in two thousand seventeen something unprecedented happened in the Lego aftermarket, the secondary market, the prices of big sets, those giant boxes with thousands of. Lego pieces they started dropping, and this is according to brick picker. One of those Lego pricing and investment guides unprecedented here here's a clip from the brick picker youtube channel. Now, elephants in the room of course, is the Millennium Falcon and take a look at legal Millennium Falcon Graph when the Lego Millennium Falcon was first released over a decade ago. It was the most expensive legos ever four, hundred, ninety, nine dollars, ninety, nine cents, and then the price shot up to almost five thousand dollars but a couple of years ago it dropped by more than thirty percent in less than a year. By this set was one of the worst decisions that I made in my entire collection brick picker said. In Alkan started cropping up all over the Internet from places like let's knock off Millennium Falcon sets, which, of course, sell for much less a Lotta the Lego fans I talked to you were pretty upset about this. So be careful out there the next time you are shopping make sure you are getting the real thing

New "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" trailer released

"We are here to talk about Social Media News and and the first thing we're going to talk about is star wars because the trailer was on tonight during the halftime show of the Monday night football game to which I said to Monday night football games normally have a halftime show is not more of a super bowl thing and my husband who's a football fan said he didn't think it normal we happened but ESPN is owned by Disney who also now owned star wars so they have you know they they have the means to play the new star wars trailer as part of the halftime show which may or may not be a normal part of Monday night football it doesn't matter if it is or not that's when it was and we happen to be watching the game let me rephrase my husband happened to be watching the game I happen to be reading a book that's that's often how we watch football together uh together I glanced up every once in a while and we we know we have conversations I read a book or snuggle with puppies or whatever it happens to be so the new trailer the rise star wars the rise of skywalker premiered tonight and of course it is now trending on Social Media so there's a lot of scenes of ray running running and jumping into generally being the athletic bad ass that she tends to be you know it it tells you both a lot and not much at all gives you just enough to speculate of course because that is what a good trailer does and of course people are speculating the trailer is two minutes and thirty eight seconds long so of course there's plenty to speculate about and of course fans are already commenting on social media creating youtube videos et CETERA and there's already than articles parsing the social media news and the the all of these all the speculation this article is from movie Web Dot COM and they say they have I know they don't say that that was my word they say we have compiled some of the best still images to make section process that much easier for everybody Some fans got an early start this afternoon when the studio released a teaser trailer which featured the Ice Planet of Jimmy and possibly the ghost chip from the Star Wars rebels animated series so Lucasville announced over the weekend that the final rise of skywalker trailer was going to drop during tonight's Monday night football game which follows the promotional campaign for the previous in this stall moment of latest trilogy j.j Abrams has spoken about his fear of putting endings two things but he seems pretty confident that what he pulled off here and the rise of Skywalker The new trailer teases something star wars fans are going to be talking about for months couple of months at least because it comes out on December twentieth so we have we have just under two months to speculate before we can go see it the rise of Walker footage released so far has had a darker tone to it which seems forboding return of Emperor Palestine who get to hear once again and his presence is felt all over this preview. There's teasers of the dark side taking over but we always but we know that George Lucas always intended on bringing balance to the story so we will more than likely end up seeing that representative as well even though he with the latest trailer and footage we still have no idea what J.j Abrams and Chris Stereo have really cooked up for us that does not stop us from speculating things that I saw on social media people already combining Kylo and raise name like a rail oh I think I saw some referred to him Kylo refer Dumas's Bennett depending on how you think of him but there's all sorts of speculation on what Ben and Kylo and Ray are going to be up to the palpitation also trending of course Hashtag Palestine people are having a field day speculating my favorite my favorite tweets were those talking about Ray Ray low rain kylo being on some kind of grand scavenger hunt to find the Hor- cruxes of the emperor because that just combines all of my dorky passions of both Star Wars and star wars and Harry Potter. I can't help it I'm a Dork Internet skype the let me start that over in addition to the final trailer trailer hitting the Internet the rise of skywalker tickets are early on sale well have you ever I know people do it but I have never bought a ticket a movie to two months out I remember when they re released the star I trilogy the original Star Wars Trilogy I was in college and I waited long lines for those but I've never bought a ticket that far out it'll be interesting so well we are about to see the Skywalker saga come to an end that doesn't mean star wars is coming to an end because there's a million different storylines they can pursue it's been forty two years I sense George Lucas introduced the world to the story to these characters wow I mean star wars has been around for four decades which I know because it's been around my whole life but now it's time though to close the book on nine installed events and leave room for new stories to told well it's bittersweet this article says we still have we at least have the rise of Skywalker to look forward to with all of its ties to the past and the future I'm just wondering really is it going to tie things up is it not going you know how satisfied am I going to be about this supposedly conclusion to nine movie story arc and nine movies that are some are better than others let's just put it out there of course some are better than others it's it's going to be that so the the trailer features kind of gives you glimpses of everyone C. Three Po not sure what's going on with C. Three Po little concerned about him from the trailer You Get a brief glimpse of R two D two's chew he's in there a very brief glimpse of Princess Leia hugging ray brief glimpse of Landau flying possibly the Millennium Falcon Falcon. I don't know I didn't pay enough attention but you know and then all the new characters of course ray and Kylo in Poland people whose names I'm not thinking of off the top ahead is clearly I am not that big of a fan no I am a fan I just don't always I just don't have names off the top of my head there's Dumb you get a PLO and podium Ron and Oh what is the guy's name the African American man can't think of his name that's so terrible but that's just weird that that is that it should be Lucan lay back there maybe three Po it it's like weird collisions of my life together and so I don't know what's going on with three P. Oh I don't know what's going on there's lots and lots of drama for me the the trailer was fine it's the music that gets me they do that they do that on purpose of course but the music kind of amps me up less the story Alana law I'm excited about it but it's the music like yes this is this is my childhood this is coming and I get to see it at Christmas time

I think he's got a really good question. There you go. We're you able to rebuild the millennium.

Butterscotch the clown he's also a huge star wars fan and he he took sixty hours to put together a Lego Millennium Falcon and I think it was very expensive for him to buy in the first place and we had an opportunity to shoot a segment with Harrison Ford and he wrote a bit where Harrison some Ford would destroy his actual Millennium Falcon and in the bit they pretended that it was mine but nevertheless Harrison Ford did completely obliterate this Lega Millennium Falcon and I was GonNa say if you're going to have you're letting him falcon destroyed what better way than to have destroyed himself all right very nice by the way you mentioned Andre Dubus Shay was butterscotch clown and that's sketch which we gave that puddle away was written by Todd Hard Levin the debate on the show and with some help from Andre so they ended up doing a little teamwork there but it was originally todd's idea and he wrote the bulk of it.

"I don't WanNa Watch this. This is the Falcon the Falcon this is from the Falcon ride so it's up to you. You are right yeah. Maybe you should watch it but here's an interesting thing. We've we've heard about the Falcon Right Ray. We talked about on the show. It's a right right where you get to control fly the Falcon while everybody does and everyone positive enroll exactly they did. They filmed a ride through of this where intentionally them and none of the other passengers touched any of the controls trolls Oh to see what would happen. Wow that's an expensive proposition because you have to wait in line a long time. I would imagine it was worth it for there to make the video okay and I won't spoil it. If you don't WanNA watch it but they have the full ride. It's funny. It's like unreal engine power I started watching it and I regretted it immediate and I saw I shut it off because like I don't want any of the story but here's the thing like if I go to see Hamilton. I WanNa know that music. I WanNa have the soundtrack like emily. We know this story as I'm might not do this again and so here I am in the Falcon and do I really want to spend time getting acquainted with how it looks and taking those details or do I want to know what I wanNA. Do you spent forty years of your like acquainted with the Millennium Falcon. This is not a a I need to learn up like what do you mean what is hyperspace like you know everything already. I get over intuition. It should be a cow. What is this when he modeled these based on your actions? Jeremy has a child and you're pressing the buddies. I don't know I have mixed feelings. I part of me thinks that I when I get in there. I WANNA be able to take advantage of it not discover things so much but on the other hand you're right the discovery would be so much more compelling. I think the only answer is writing twice. Oh Yeah I mean yeah I mean you're coming at it from the perspective only being able to write the ones and not having high to go multiple times but if you adoption right at ten times in a row of course you want to go down go in cold hold yes. I absolutely so treated that way life ahead E._J.. Right by I wonder how they're going to simulate some of the effects like how this ride works like. Obviously there's gotta be screens around the cockpit and all that stuff but I'm kind of wondering if they spin you to simulate like going to hyperspace or like no no no rating and slowing it. It's not it's being mission earth. How do you know no? I don't think it's going to be that intense like mission Earth where they're like spinning you to feel the Yes but there has to be. I don't think it's back to the future either or you're just GonNa get a small Gimme really yeah the thing so I think it must be. There must be some motion. They are going through because otherwise why design it as these cockpits where they have multiple ones going through. I mean obviously that's throughput but I've feeling that thing is moving a lot more than we think well. I won't spoil the details of what you see in the right by will say from their experience from their test of going through the ride without pressing any button and you actually still have a ride no yeah I'm sure the engineers have imagined the effort plan for the scenario and you actually get to see through do a bunch of sequences like you know what I'll never do that like no group I'm with will ever yeah of course so once. I read the right now. Watch this. Can you at least tell me is it funny. I would expect it to be funny. I wouldn't even the right itself like I would expect nothing. If you do nothing like you're just trolling the game and the game would recognize that and say say things no not really okay no all right they always in universe yeah okay now in that basically for pop culture we will say next week.

That word to use the end was very apropos Disney shifted, quite a while ago to attempt whole strategy for its film in filtering that content through all aspects of the business, including the arc. So I'm not surprised at all. You know they opened up a frozen lamb. There's talk of a marble land in several others. That just continue the franchise. Do I think this is going to happen everywhere? Now I mean look, you get six flags and stuff. They've done things in the past with Warner characters or DC characters the competitor tomorrow, but they haven't taken off quite as well.

I was quickly reading stuff through all the commercial breaks. They revealed a lot more than I thought they would reveal Lum. They confirmed that Jj Abrams. Good friend, and miss Felicity herself, Keri, Russell is in this movie. Rumors that she was ended there. She couldn't confirm it. Well, Vanity Fair, confirmed it and even showed her costume. It is a kick costume. She plays hold on a minute. It's a cool name to her costume is awesome. Let's see here there. She is. She plays a bad guy. She is a K. Russell masked scoundrel by the way.

Did you know that thing and it's tomorrow to celebrate? We're gonna talk about Disney's newest and biggest theme park attractions since Disneyland opened in nineteen fifty five. The long-awaited Star Wars land called galaxy's edge is about to open on may thirty first at Disneyland and August twenty ninth at Disney World in Orlando. Disney likes to call the fourteen acre park within a park the new land. It centers around the black spire outpost were good and evil. Meet in the form of the characters from the Heroux resistance and the dangerous. I order the attraction is immersive in one ride fans will be able to pilot the millennium falcon starship through the galaxy on the rise of the resistance, which will open some months down the road. You'll be in a simulated battle the intention to make you feel like a member of the resistance. Fighting off the first order in surviving to become a hero galaxy's edge is one of the most highly anticipated theme park openings ever and Disney's been planning for a crush of fans from day one. That means your visit to the black spire outpost will be short one through late June. Visitors will have to make reservations for four hour. Time slots Disney's trying to manage traffic so visiting a galaxy far far away is a good experience not misery for the last few weeks. Only Disney hotel customers have been able to get those reservations. But you better love Star Wars. Those rooms will set you back up to seven hundred sixty dollars a night as the LA times notes that's close to two hundred dollars per Star Wars, our even before you buy Disneyland. Tickets on Thursday, though, Disney began accepting reservation requests from anyone not just hotel goers, given the anti that Disney's built up for Star Wars land. It would. Easy to assume that it's the only attraction around hardly all of Florida's. Big theme. Parks are introducing new attractions this summer jumping in well before galaxy's edge opens up at DisneyWorld on June thirteenth, the wildly popular Harry Potter attraction at Comcast's universal. Orlando is getting a new roller coaster Hagrid magical creatures motorbike adventure in case, you don't know those motorbikes fly. So while one big question is will I be able to get a reservation to galaxies edge. Another bigger question for theme park leaders might be will universal siphon-off family's theme park.

Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro accuses US government of fabricating a crisis to start war in South America

"Now, though, Disneyland making some changes the head of the opening of its newest attraction Star Wars galaxies edge this concerns, these smoking areas or and also strollers what you can bring in that park. Robert Niles is the editor and founder of theme park insider. So let's start with the smoking areas. I feel like there weren't that many left to begin with. And now what they're all gone. Yeah, they basically were down to one and it was white next to where the entrance to galaxy. That was gonna be felt they ran out of room for smoking spaces. And if there's no space for smoking smoking in your team park anymore. All right. So a double wide stroller. I guess I can kind of imagine, you know, the reason for that. But what if you what if you have one kid and the kid is extra large, and you need a double wide, really? You're double wide is less than thirty one inches wide. You're still good to go. Disneyland. The thing that they did today was reduced their knacks from thirty six inches down thirty one and they're going to start wrenching double stroller. Disneyland now would say hadn't done the past. But these are going to be tandem strollers where the kids are one in front and behind each other as opposed to side by side. Okay. So it's still doable. Like people shouldn't be concerned about like. Oh, wow. Look at this stroller ban. And I'm going to have a lot of trouble. Now, it's still it's still very much doable. You just have to work within the more restrictive guidelines now. All right. So they're expecting a big crowd for the Star Wars thing. I know Mike Simpson's going to go about a hundred eighty two times in a row. We're not going to see him for a while. Or the crowds going to be so big. It's really just going to be about impossible to get in even with all these changes of trying to make room for people. Well, they are doing galaxy's edge on a reservation only basis for the first three and a half weeks. So and they haven't said yet. How are we going to get those reservations unless you are currently booked into Disneyland hotel room, and then you're good to go. And then after the twenty four th they're to use what's called a virtual queue to get into it. So there isn't gonna be some stand by you. It's kind of like negative fast fast system will you'll have to get a reservation get into the land. Once you get to the park for the day. So no stand by for that. So they're trying to control the capacity, and then all this other stuff that they're doing is trying to free up space within the park. So the rest of the park is over crowded as well. Okay. So the whole wait in line virtually, and then you know, when you're supposed to come back that kind of solves the problem of the crowd inside the attraction because some of this is is make you wait like the millennium falcon thing, right? You go in the cockpit and the rest of you kind of mill about, but you can't mill about in the ship with five hundred other people. They're still going to be a way to get into the attractions inside the land, but they're gonna use the virtual queue. So that the land itself doesn't get too crowded. So you may have to wait since you're a way to get into the land. And then you're weights for individual, attractions, restaurants, etc. Inside galaxy catch what happens to star tours over in Tomorrowland. I haven't heard anybody say or go a lot of people are wondering about that over at Hong Kong Disneyland, they built basically the same ride steam the iron man from the marvel cinematic universe. So a lot of people are wondering, hey, you've got Star Wars on the other side of the park. Why not change star tours to an iron dizzy has said nothing at this point as to what they're officially going to do

What is a Parsec?

"Sect is a real astronomical unit of measurement with cool origins. Yes. It measures distance not time. Yes. The term was used improperly in the original Star Wars. Yes. I will. Absolutely get to that in a few minutes. No, Ashley, you're not getting out of this one. I love Star Wars that I'm cost played Star Wars character. This is true. Well, we're all gonna love stores by the end of this. Here's the deal. One person is a quivalent to three points to six late years. That's nineteen trillion miles or thirty one trillion kilometers, if that seems excessive that's because it absolutely is. But when it comes to measuring astronomically large distances between. Objects that are beyond our solar system. Excessively large is just right. I said beyond our solar system, by the way for you to travel one parcel from earth. You would have to go from here to the sun and back two hundred six thousand two hundred sixty five times, I told you it was big the word purse that comes from two words Pera lax and our second para lacks describes when an object's location seems to have changed because your location changed. Astronomers use para lax to judge the distance of object in the sky, if you know, how far the earth has moved and you can measure how far the object moved across its starry backdrop you can judge distance. You actually use parallel to judge the distance of things all the time. You're too is see the world from slightly different angles, and your brain crunches, the numbers to tell you how far away everything is from you. The second half of Parsi refers to an arc second in arc. Second is part of a measurement of an angle. You know, how a circle is three hundred sixty degrees. Imaginer standing with a full view of the horizon around you if you sliced the horizon into three hundred sixty degrees each degree would be about twice the width of the full moon divide one of those degrees into sixty pieces, and you get the width of an arc minute divide. One of those up by sixty again, and you get an arc second. Putting it all together. A par sec is the Pera lacks of one arc second. In other words, if an object in the sky moves by one arc second when the earth moves by one astronomical unit. Then the object is one par cycle way to put that in perspective. Proxima centauri is the star. That's our closest neighbor, and it's one point three par away for more perspective the millennium falcon made the kessel run in twelve par sex, and I'm sorry pedants. But before you go criticizing stores for this, quote, unquote mistake, I you need to understand what the kessel run actually is you'll feed skip forward thirty seconds or so if you can't handle my nerdiness in Star Wars, Ken. In the kessel run is a route used by smugglers to transport in illicit substance from minds on the planet kessel through a region of space that belongs to the galactic empire. So it's an illegal smuggling route. And this route includes a cluster of black holes known as the Ma as you know, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line. So when Hans solo said he made the kessel run in twelve par sex. He was referring to his daring knish and piloting skills and the sophisticated computer on the money on falcon that he was able to use to navigate close to those black holes while not getting sucked in I was aware of this reading books from the Star Wars expanded universe. And I was a kid, but thanks to Disney. They are no longer canon. But they also address this in the twentieth. Eighteen films solo Star Wars story, which I still have not seen. But they address all of this after the movie happened. Does doesn't matter doesn't make just made it up afterward to make that line? Okay. To work. No, still works. That is art. That's how you craft a story. I think this is the biggest debate we've ever had in this.

Is there a difference between weather and climate?

"Do you know the difference between the terms weather and climate? It's an important distinction. If you follow science news, and we've gotten a lot of questions about it lately. So today, I've got you covered as reported by the conversation weather, basically refers to stuff happening, right? This second like cloud, cover and temperature. You know, the day to day conditions of the atmosphere. Climate is a more macro view. It describes the average atmospheric conditions over many years. In fact, the World Meteorological Organization says that figuring out a climate record. Takes a minimum of thirty years of data. This includes things like average annual rainfall overall direction of the wind or what time of year, you're most likely to see snow. Here's. An analogy that might help. It comes from Jennifer Fitchet, who's a senior lecturer in physical geography at the university of the Witwatersand. The climate is like your wardrobe. You got a winter coat and scarf, or when it's cold flip flops in shorts for when it's warm and everything in between whether is the individual item of clothing you choose to wear you change what you wear from day to day. If it snowing you put on boots, and if it's really hot you might wear sandals. The thing is everyone in the world doesn't have the same wardrobe. If you live right on the equator, then you probably don't have a winter coat, and that brings us back to weather and climate the conditions in one place are different from the conditions far away from wherever you are. Here's what that means for how we can understand climate projections and climate forecasts the weather forecast, you see on TV or on your phones weather app is there to help you figure out what to wear on the other hand climate projections. Tell you what scientists think the climate will be in forty fifty maybe a hundred years climate projections are a war. Warning that we might want to change up our wardrobe. Maybe we won't need such heavy coats. And maybe it's a good time to pick up some shorts or umbrellas or raincoats. There's no need to switch up your whole wardrobe overnight. Just take your time look ahead and plan and adapt and hopefully stay dry a sect is a real astronomical unit of measurement with cool origins. Yes. It measures distance not time. Yes. The term was used improperly in the original Star Wars. Yes. I will. Absolutely get to that in a few minutes. No, Ashley, you're not getting out of this one.

Obviously makes Cody happy, you know, who else is happy by most metrics Scandinavians, the annual world happiness report consistently rates the Nordic countries of Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Iceland among the top ten happiest nations. So today, we'll wrap up with some life philosophies from Nordic countries that might make you a little happier in your own life. I is hugging. The Danish concept of Hooda translates to something like coziness of the soul. It's the feeling you get when you're snuggled up under a blanket with a loved one drinking cocoa by the fire as a life philosophy. It's all about allowing yourself guilt free indulgences, especially when the world is dark and dreary anything from getting together with family and friends for a meal to spending time on your own reading a good book like from the Star Wars expanded universe to sand. The next philosophy is Logam logo is a Swedish word that roughly translates to just right or optimal. You probably heard the saying everything in moderation, including moderation. That's what logo is all about. Whether that's how much sugared add to a batch of cookies or how much of your life. You devote to your work. This philosophy urges a healthy balance. That doesn't swing too far in any direction and one other philosophy is see sue. It's a unique finish concept. That's about persisting through challenges until you reach the end the term roughly translates into English as a strength of will, determination perseverance and acting rationally in the face of adversity. It's not about courage in the moment. But the kind of courage that has to last over time after inspiration has sputtered out.

"The actual powers that been imbued on the millennium falcon a very frustrating yeah it's crazy and alec i think i was less sensitive to that last time but this time i felt like oh come on because i had lost track of all of the thai fighters i like wait a minute what happened all those typewriters and and my wife she's like oh the money volcan just just wipe them on our like right got it great but i think that's a key thing that they were more reasonable explanations the stuff that the dumb plot idea that like oh you drop a bomb in a in a particular hole in the whole thing blows up was like okay fine whatever but at least it's a mechanism four why kennedy tiny number of ships defeat a larger number of ships right whereas in in this movie repeatedly we have this idea that like the ridiculously outclassed resistance is able to just win because they're better like in the end fighting seen it was really the case or say they call out by number like the resistance has thirteen ships and we are here on the planet with like all of this materiel like and we're still going to get our asses handed to us it's frustrating and i think it's just nonsensical because you the movie wants certain things to happen well leica power and rose go to vegas go to monaco monica is that's where i o i swear to god i was looking at that and i was like did they actually film it in monaco i was waiting for a gigantic sign that said welcome to monaco in the background and you're like some cgi artist forgot to race breeding heat this part of the movie a hate this part of the movie so ma levels yeah i'm with you it's really bad except gray i really love the same where they put the coins in baby a because i think he's a slot machine and half of that was really clever it was really got word clever it was terrible.

"Here's something else you might not know that rebel spaceship being pursued by darth vader star destroyer in the famous opening sequence it's actually the millennium falcon sort of when lucas initially was developing wars and he knew han solo's pirate ship which in the early draft he doesn't have a name for yet but he knows this is going to be an important shift so he puts his crew at industrial light magic toward building this very elaborate sort of gigantic model of uh what's going to be hansolaf pirate ship and it's maybe six feet long and its decked out with lights and it's despite long rectangularshaped ship with big jets at the back the cockpit at the front sort of squatty legs to land on and lucas ran into a big problem as he was building his models in that space 1999 debuted on american television and the eagle landers and that television show lucas that looked a little too much like his pirate ship so we had to go back and have them start over again and bilden ship which he wanted to make it look more like a flying saucer and that's that's what the cockpit off to one side and that's put mandible is on the front and that's make it look like a you know sort of like a beat up hot rod and it looks like a hamburger the end up calling it the pork burger and eventually became the millennium falcon but now he's get this gigantic ship so they ended up using that to be the tanti four that you see in the very opening shot and it's actually a gigantic model they have to really shoot it very carefully so what looks really small as the starters were the you know sort of engulfs it and then opening shot but that ship you're saying that sort of falls victim to the starters or at the very beginning that is the first version of the millennium talk.
