At this years San Diego Comic-Con, Hasbro are showcasing their 3.75″ action figures in some rather cool dioramas, including this very , very nice Millennium Falcon dio. Of course, none of them are designed for mass production and sale, but they are all really good, none the less.
I suppose that you could argue that it’s a reworking of Attakus’s Millennium Falcon and Death Star Dio, but the inside’s not as detailed. The outside looks pretty good and the addition of lights is a nice touch. (Something that would’ve made the Attakus dio even better.)
It’s not quite up there with Hot Toy’s displays last year, but it is a great display.
Thanks to Rebelscum and their ongoing reporting of the SDCC for the heads up and the photos.
I bought a Navy Challenge coin a couple of months ago and was really delighted by it, so i was pleased to stumble on this one on Ebay.
The coin is about five inches wide and is made out ot metal, so it has a really nice feel to it. The blue engine is a nice touch. I’m really pleased with it and the display box is very nice, too.
I was quite lucky with the auction, but it cost me twice as much as the coin itself to ship to the UK.
A couple of interesting additions to my collection this week. The first is this “inkless pen” from Napkin Forever in a rather nifty Millennium Falcon case.
I got mine from Amazon for about £30. It’s nice, but i have yet to write anything with it.
I just bought this Japanese Earphone Mascot from a seller on Ebay.
You simply plug it into the earphone jack on your mobile and that’s it.
The Falcon’s a little smaller than a Micro machine.
I thought that this rendition of the Millennium Falcon by Tony Bamber was pretty interesting. Just called “Smuggler”, it showcases the Millennium Falcon as a turntable with various knobs and headphone jacks making up other parts of the Falcon.
I like it. It’s different and dare i say, cool. (Click on the image for larger version.)
You can buy the image printed on to various bits from his web site, but i went with the 24″ by 36″ print.
He also does one called DJ-3P0.
I bought this 40th Anniversary pack of Disney miniature Tsum Tsums for £10 at the Disney Store. They’re pretty cute, even the GF likes them. And they come in a great Millennium Falcon box.
