ACME archives have just released this beautiful print by Tsuneo Sanda called Cloud City Celebration and it features every character and vehicle (with the exception of the Star Destroyers) from The Empire Strikes Back on landing platform 327.
Stunning. However, i do think that this is incredibly expensive. The large print on canvas is limited to 25 pieces and is a whopping $825. This is for a 24 1/2″ by 36″ print. The small canvas is limited to 150 pieces at $325 for a 17″ by 25″ print and the paper print is limited to 95 pieces at $165 for a 17″ by 22″ print.
Mattel announced recently that they have a license to produce Star Wars toys based on their popular Hot wheels brand.
I am pleased to see that they also have a Millennium Falcon. Not sure what the “Flight Navigator” action feature is. Nice to see that they’ve also included a stand for displaying.
No idea yet on price or release date.
Takara Tomy showed their Star Wars Tomica toys at the recent Tokyo Toy fair and the Millennium Falcon in one of them.
Cute. No information as to a release date or price point yet. The other Star Wars Tomicas include a Star Destroyer, X-Wing and Tie Fighter.
Also on Etsy is this set of minimalist prints by Greater Geek for the Star Wars series featuring a ship prominent in that particular movie and a single word. Hope features the silhouette of the Millennium Falcon framing the twin suns of Tatooine.
New on Etsy is this minimalist print of the Millennium Falcon by Jake Russell Thompson. It’s one of a series of prints all showing various Science Fiction space ships in profile. It’s quite a nice set IMO, although i am only interested in the Falcon.
You don’t often see the Millennium Falcon in profile like this so it’s a pretty refreshing print
The print can be ordered in several sizes, but I’m going with 11″ by 14″ as that is quite a common size.
Slave 1 and the X-Wing are also available as well as several other well loved ships from other SF franchises including Star Trek, Aliens, Battlestar Galactica and Serenity.
In May last year the Hero Complex Gallery ran an exhibition called “Righteous Rides And The Dudes Who Ride Them”. The show was based around well known cult vehicles and their owners. Matt Dye created this rather bright print for the show.
The print itself is 18″ by 24″ and was limited to a rather small edition size of 25 pieces.
I didn’t find out about this until earlier this year when i stumbled across Craig Drake’s “Falcon”, so i haven’t been able to acquire one. They crop up every now and then on ebay.
