The world of Star Wars and Pixar's movie Cars has merged in this impressive LEGO piece by Raphael Heusser.
Raphael Heusser's hybrid LEGO spacecraft takes the form of the Millennium Falcon and mashes it together with Cars' beloved character Lightning McQueen. Considering how the former can make "point five past lightspeed" according to Han Solo and how the latter has won numerous racing championships, the two definitely complement each other well. Much of the design takes after Lightning McQueen, which includes his car number '95' on both ends of the spacecraft, his red color and his eyes. Of course, all the guns from the original Millennium Falcon have been added to this playful piece.
With the Millennium Falcon now modified, I hope Heusser considers tackling a Death Star hybrid.
