Falcon Brothers by Pickled Circus

Some time ago i posted on Matthew Roby’s “Rebel Rider” print that was available on Etsy. It’s a fun print that i still need to pick up. On redbubble is this “Falcon Brothers” tee shirt which has the same style and sense of fun about it.

Nice to see that he’s kept the detail in the Falcon and it’s not just a silhouette.

There are a couple of other Star Wars designs including “Strawberry Solo” featuring Boba Fett and Slave one

Strawberry Solo

Alderaan Avenger” featuring Princess Leia, a very steam punk Artoo Detoo and Darth Vader.

Alderaan AvengerDeath Trap” with a rather odd looking Admial Ackbar.

Millennium Falcon Kaleidoscope by Tunderstrum

Another recent submission featureing the Millennium Falcon is “Millennium Falcon Kaleidoscope” by Tunderstrom. It’s an unusual design and i’ve not seen the Falcon represented in this way before. It’s nice to see so many recognisable Star Wars insignia incorporated into this design.

Smuggler Games; Catching Han by RyanAstle

I haven’t posted much recently as there hasn’t been much purchasing or discovery of new collectables relating to the Millennium Falcon (although the Hero Complex Gallery recently posted that they might have something of interest in the coming days). Anyway, i thought i’d post a couple of recent tee shirt designs from Red Bubble to keep the blog ticking over.

The first is “Smuggler Games; Catching Han” by Ryan Astle which is, or course a play on the recent Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire.

Smuggler Games Catching HanI like this design, but i may have to pass as shipping on these is always so expensive to the UK. Either that, or i may look at ordering a few tee’s to bring the postage cost down.

Star Wars auction for Robbie Edwards

Robbie Edwards is a former ILM employee who has worked as a model maker on The Empire Strikes Back and other special effects movies. Recently, Robbie suffered a stroke and wasn’t insured, so ILM employees both current and former are holding auctions to raise money for his rehabilitation here. There are over 160 auctions of various film making memorabilia and works of art for sale.

This two inch model of the Millennium Falcon by Charlie Bailey caught my eye, so i have put in a bid. Whilst not an actual filming prop, it is an interesting piece.

Charlie_Bailey_2_inch_Falcon_in_case“Charlie Bailey worked as a model maker, chief model maker and model supervisor for George Lucas’ Industrial Light & Magic starting in 1979 with ‘Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back’. He has 32 movie credits and has worked on many more effects driven movies. This two inch miniature is a replica of the Falcon used in The Empire Strikes Back. It’s actual dimensions are 1.5 x 2 x .25 It comes in a 3.5 x 3.5 x5″ Plexiglas box. Includes a Certificate of Authenticity. Charlie competed this miniature in 2012.”

21/09/14: Well, my bid was for $400. Not a great bid, but it’s the top end of what I can afford. The final selling price was a whopping $1, 200. I know it’s for charity but that is a lot of coin. I’m disappointed, of course but I am pleased it raised so much cash.

Best wishes to whoever bought her, I hope you can send me a picture of her in your collection.  Best wishes to Robbie, too. MTFBWY.
