Some time ago i bought the Millennium Falcon Spec Plate from Acme Archives. It’s a truly impressive piece, but at $1500 (it was on sale), it’s an expensive collectible and for that kind of money, you’d expect a little exclusivity. Newmennium has just posted about Acme at the Disney weekends and their new line of “Tech Plates”. They’re going to be limited to an edition size of 295 pieces and will be priced at $295 each.
At about 10″ by 18″, their smaller than their cousin. Overall, i really like them and I’m pretty certain that i’ll be picking one up, but i think that i would have liked some of the details on the Millennium Falcon plate to differ from the specplate. Perhaps top and bottom blueprints and details on the belly cannon. The ramp’s a nice new addition, though. They also had TechPlates for the X-Wing and Luke’s Landspeeder.
Thanks to Newmennium for the heads up and the photos.
Darren Hayes is a UK artist who specialises in acrylics. He’s released a limited edition Millennium Falcon Black (edition size of 100 pieces at £125 each) and the White (Edition size of 10 pieces at £150 each). I’ll bet shipping would be pretty high as they look heavy in those frames.
Beautifully framed, I have to say that i do think that these look good and i like them a lot. However, i don’t know if i want to spend £125 on one. Of the two, i prefer the black one as the acrylic looks like glass.
It looks like the Kotokubuya mold was used to make these.
I love this Star Wars Hanger Tee Shirt.
Typical, you post that there’s no official merchandise being released, then three things come out. This Millennium Falcon Stripe is available here for $29.99 and are pretty cool on my opinion.
Unfortunately, they don’t ship to the UK.
Acme Archives are celebrating May the Fourth with a release of several new Star Wars prints. Brian Rood’s Redemption is of Han Solo in a somewhat contemplative mood on board the Millennium Falcon. (I would imagine that this “scene” is occuring as Luke prepares to go into Battle for the Rebels in A New Hope.) I love the way that the shadow is of Han’s older, smuggler self.
It’s a beautiful piece, but i’m not sure if i’ll get a copy as $450 is a lot of coin. Besides, i still need to gett Vanderstelt’s Smugglers Hideaway.
It’s limited to an edition size of 95 copies for both the canvas print ($450) and the Paper print ($125).
Stephen Hayford is releasing four exclusive prints at Disney’s Star Wars Weekends atthe end of this month. One of them is of a scene that was cut from Return of the Jedi where our heroes return to the Millennium Falcon in the middle of a sandstorm after rescuing Han from Jabba’s clutches.
It’s a very nice print, IMO. Here are the others
I like this Battle of Yavin poster by Vesa Lehtimäki. Simple yet effective.
I don’t know if it’s available to buy.
