Star Wars 1978 Millennium Falcon by TheRetroDraughtsman

Now this Is nostalgia to the nth degree. I absolutely adore this print of Palitoy’s (Kenner to our friends in the United States), Millennium Falcon toy from 1978. I ordered immediately and look forward to framing it to display with my own Palitoy toys.

By TheRetroDraughtsman and you can buy them at his Etsy site for £40 plus postage. There are a few other Star Wars prints there too, including a Speeder Bike, Slave One and several others in this style as well as several blueprint images of toys including the Millennium Falcon, which I will get later.

Printed to 914mm by 610 mm, it’huge and is a must for any Star Wars collector in my opinion.

Star Wars Hot Wheels

I’ve been waiting for Mattel to release a Millennium Falcon “Car Ship” for their Hot Wheels line and i think that it’s pretty cool.

There’s also a battle damaged version that comes with the Death Star battle set.

Millennium Falcon car door lights

I thought that this pair of car door lights were an interesting, if a little odd, purchase for me. They project an image of the Millennium Falcon to the floor whenm the car doors are opened.

It cost me £11:59 for the pair but i won’t be installing it, this is purely a fun addition to the collection.

Star Wars Blank House Keys

I was out shopping with a friend and randomly came across this Millennium Falcon blank house key by Davenport Burgess. It’s quite nice and weighty, but i thought it was a little expensive at £6.99 and if i wanted to get the key cut it could work out to be pretty expensive.

mf-key-blanksAs a collectible, i’m glad i bought it but i will think twice about cutting it.
