Check out this printed Millennium Falcon rug by Thinkgeek.
Pretty cool, huh? How can i not have this in my collection?
They’re $99.99 each, which is a really good price. Even shipping to the UK is very reasonable at less than $50.
I have seen Calvin Ma‘s work around the internet for a while and i like his style. “More Under The Hood” is his latest work and it’s centred around the Falcon. The sculpture itself is ceramic and 9″ by 5″ by 8″. Unfortunately, it’s $2, 200 price tag puts it well out of my price range.
There’s also a nice Landspeeder (New Journey) and X-Wing (Dog Fight) sculpture, but these have been sold.
I have wondered about it’s unusual style and this statement from Calvin makes a lot of senses and if anything, makes these sculptures even more desirable.
- Homebodies: Recollective: “My work draws inspiration from the toys and action figures I had growing up. As an introverted and socially awkward kid, the plastic heroes, villains and their vehicles helped me cope with my inability to socialize. They served as an escape for me and soon became a passion. Now, as an introverted and socially awkward adult, I create artwork that reflects on the struggles I have with social anxiety. Those toys have become a visual reference in my work and in a way, still help me cope. ‘Homebodies: Recollective’ is a continuation of the series I’ve been working on, but incorporates pop culture related vehicles. Movies and cartoons were also welcome distractions growing up, so I thought it would be interesting to pair more recognizable elements with my work.” ~Calvin Ma
I was looking for some information on the new Japanese Star Wars toys (Tomy and Bandai) and i came across these acrylic pass holders by a company called Dikokick. A photo i stumbled upon showed a Millennium Falcon pass holder.
Hmmm. I’m intrigued, but can’t find any information on them. If anyone can tell me anything about this, i would much appreciate it.
Here’s a photo of the others.
I have the Han Solo print by Bensmind and I love it. Ben has just released this Lando Calrissian print that also features the Millennium Falcon.
I must say that considering that this is predominantly a Bespin print that I would’ve thought that orange is a more suited colour. Still, it’s another great print and I will be sure to pick one up. You can order one from his ETSY shop.
I have seen Christian Slade’s work on the Rebelscum forums. He has taken various vehicles from the Star Wars universe and painted them as arcade rides. It’s nostalgic work as i remember this style of ride. “Arcade 1979” has the Millennium Falcon.
It’s limited to an edition size of 50 pieces and is $175 for a 9″ by 11 1/2″ print. I would like to get one, but it won’t be too high on my too buy list. The others in the set are;
Arcade 1977 which features Luke’s Landspeeder.
Arcade 1978 featuring Luke’s X-Wing
Arcade 1980 featuring an At-At
Arcade 1981 featuring Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter
Arcade 1982 which has some of the animals seen in the Star Wars Universe
Arcade 1983 featuring a Speeder Bike.
Slave 1 is conspiciously missing. I wonder where the series will go.
