Tsukuda Millennium Falcon and Slave 1 kit

I recently saw this 1982 Japanese Tsukuda model on Ebay and am pleased to report that i won it. I will admit to paying quite a lot for it, but it’s in great shape and i fancy this to be quite rare.

Millennium Falcon 16gb flash drive by Royal Selangor Pewter

Malaysian Pewter makers Royal Selangar have recently announced a line in Star Wars pewter objects. Part of this collection is a Millennium Falcon 16gb flash drive.

imageThe price will be £69, which is pretty expensive when you consider that the Mimo Micro card retails for $12.99. Still, it’s quite a nice item and it’s always nice to see a new license.

imageI wonder if the stick part can be folded or retracts into the body of the cast?

I don’t think that these will be limited as the other items are all listed at edition sizes in the area of 5, 000.

This is getting quite a lot of flack from the guys at the RS forums and I can understand it with the whole Nerf gun. But let’s remember that this is a toy, first and foremost so I will definitely be picking one up. I wonder if the “features” give any clues to actual changes to the Falcon in Episode VII?

Each tray will be 16″ by 21″ and 2″ deep. At $250 it’s not cheap, but each one takes 4 to six weeks to be made by hand.
