Millennium Falcon Kite from XKites

XKites have a range of Star Wars kites that include the X-Wing, Millennium Falcon, R2-D2 and BB-8. I’ve ordered the 32″ ($24.00) Millennium Falcon kite for my collection but i believe that there is also a 50″ ($34.99) and 6.5″ version.

The Kite comes with a 170″ of twine to fly.

Star Wars Rollinz

I’m not too sure what these “Rollinz” figurines are but from what i can make out it’s an italian collection made of 22 characters (14 light side, and 8 dark side), which can be collected in this rather handy Millennium Falcon collectors case.

At this point i’m not sure whether i’ve got this right, but it appears that you use the figures in conjunction with an app. You scan the figures to give your inapp game more abilities.

The figures are pretty cute and 1.99 Euros each and there’s a Jabba one, so i need to tell my frined icruise. The Falcon looks like it’s made from cardboard. Anyway. i have put in a bid on a http://www.ebay.it so hopefully i will be able to report back on quality in a few weeks.

Star Wars air freshener by Napolex

I was browsing the internet for more Japanese Millennium Falcon related collectibles and stumbled across a company called Napolex. They specialise in in car accessories and their catalogue features SW17, an in car air freshener.

imageimageAty 68x100x2 mm, it’s a pretty decent size. Unfortunately, i can’t find anywhere to buy it.

I love the expression “Swinging and enjoyable fragrance”.

Millennium Falcon by Julia Las

Julia Las hails from the Ukraine and specialises in beautiful miniature water colour paintings. Most of her work is of the natural world, but she’s clearly a Star Wars Fan. I saw that she had painted the Millennium Falcon and contacted her to see if she’d do another for me. She agreed and i’m looking forward to receiving it in the coming weeks.

This one’s mine.

She’s clearly a talented artist and considering how small these paintings are, they are incredibly detailed. Original paintings are reasonably priced between $50 and $65 and prints are $15. Check out her Etsy shop and contact her. i’m sure she would be interested in commissions.

Here is the rest of her Star Wars collection.

Depending on how different my Millennium Falcon is, I’ll probably pick up a print of her Millennium Falcon too.
