Hoang Tran of Wax Nostalgic makes these sculptures out of crayons. How incredible is that? Naturally I’m only interested in the Millennium Falcon.
I love that he’s made the engine by melting the wax from a blue crayon. Each one is made to order and is less than half an inch wide.
This is a seriously talented guy. Check out his shop as there are plenty of genre scultures, including these Star Wars ones.

I don’t understand the idea or the attraction that some people have with ear plugs, but I’m not going to criticize it. There are a couple of Millennium Falcon related plugs are available on Etsy.
The first are these blueprint plugs by GameLinks in various sizes.
It’s an often used image but I think that they’re an unusual and relatively cheap addition to my collection. They have quite a lot nice genre designs for plugs and cufflinks in their shop.
The next pair of plugs are these “3d” ones by Man on Mars.
This sketch card by Steve Stanley came up on ebay today so I put in a bid of $40.
Alas, I lost the bid while I was asleep and didn’t get a chance to raise my bid. Still, congratulations to whoever won it. It’s a great card.
Available from Tee Fury for one day only is Revel by DJKopet (AKA Christopher Kawagiwa).
“This design portrays Han and the Falcon in the retro 80′s style of the movie Drive. I love the simple, straightforward title of the movie, as it sums up the main character in a single word. There are many action words that could describe Han as he evolves throughout his story arc form selfish smuggler to selfless hero. I chose the verb “Rebel” to best describe what he does, since his decision to rebel in the movie becomes his defining moment.”
I think this is a great design but I begrudge paying more for the shipping to the UK than the actual tee shirt itself.
I saw this Millennium Falcon Limited Edition Lumix camera today. Hmmm, not too sure what to make of this to be honest.

The second Millennium Falcon related tee shirt is this “Millennium Falcon Rock“.
Reminds me of the Sonia Helios art work for the Hamilton Collection Millennium Falcon Plate.
Idly browsing the 1′s and 0′s of the internet I came across Dork Tees. They had a couple of designs that I hadn’t seen before so I thought I’d post them. This one is called Millennium Falcon 1000.
The Gold colouring’s pretty good for a tee shirt. It’s up for $20.
