One of the guys on the Rebelscum boards posted this “Advanced Millennium Falcon Tech Plate” that’s on Ebay at the moment. This one is number 1 of an edition size of 100.
The piece is 24″ by 48″ and i have no idea on what the RRP is.
Most of the images appear to be from the Millennium Falcon owners Guide by Ryder Windam, Chris Trevas and Chris Reiff, and they are credited on the plate.
Although we’ve seen these images before, i really think that this is a piece worth getting and it’s certainly something that I want in my collection. I like the heavy use of Aurabesh throughout and it’s crammed full of detail, even down to the quotations running around the border line.
The seller won’t ship to the UK, so i can’t bid. I can’t contact him to ask him to reconsider, either. I shall wait and see if i can grab one of the 99 remaining examples.
I have done a few searches on the internet, but can’t find anything outside of the Tech Plate released by ACME Archives in 2010. The COA says that the company producing this is Titan Technology LLC. Again, an internet search was not conclusive.
It’s not framed like the ACME plate, but it does come with everything you need to secure it to the wall.
This fabulous digital image of the Millennium Falcon in profile is by Vincenzo Giordano from his Behance page. This one is from Episode IV.
They are available as a print if you contact Vincenzo. I really like this image and i thought that it’d be a wonderful companion to my David Kennedy “Pirate Ship“. I’ve asked for a print of similar dimensions, (100 cms by 80 cms) and i’m just waiting on a price.
This profile is the opposite side to the Falcon that we see on his Smugglers illustration. I wonder if we’ll see this side as well.
There’s also a similarly stunning Slave 1 piece.
Check out his Behance page for more examples of his work.
So just a quick update. I emailed Vincenzo to see if he could do me a 100cm print of both sides. This is the result. 100 Euros plus shipping. Well worth it, in my opinion. What do you think?
For those that want one too, feel free to email Vincenzo at email@example.com.
There have been a few remote controlled Millennium Falcon vehicles. Released lately, including the Air Hogs Quad drone. This drone by Propel looks like it could be more for us adults.
With speeds of up to 35 miles an hour as well as a built in laser, you can engage in dogfights with all the family. This actually looks like it could be a lot of fun. I also like that the quad rotors are slung beneath the body of the shift and not built into the actual model itself. You get to see the Falcon in all of her glory. I’ve got to say that the model itself looks like it’s been built to a very high specification.
I also love their packaging, which also allows you to display your drone very nicely.
I have no idea yet on whether I’m going to be able to get one of these in the UK let alone information on price, battery life or charge time yet but I’ll keep you posted.
There are four in the Star Wars set. The 74 Z Speeder Bike, X-Wing Fighter, Millennium Falcon and Darth Vader’s Tie Advanced X-1. You can register your interest at their website here. Naturally, I have registered for the Falcon, but I might see if I can get a second one to use.
I posted about the Floating Millennium Falcon model from Beast Kingdom late last year and i have one on preorder from Forbidden Planet. (In fact, it must be near it’s release date, now.) At this year’s 2016 Toy Fair, they released this exclusive Chrome version.
They’re limited to an edition size of 2, 000. I can’t imagine that all of them were snapped up so i’ll keep an eye out for it online. There’s one on ebay for $250, which isn’t a bad price at all. They posted these photos and i have to say that the packaging looks top notch.
I wonder if they’ll do an Episode VII version?
In the UK, Kinder are having boys Star Wars themed surprised in their eggs. One of the toys in their Star Wars collection is this tiny Han Solo and Millennium Falcon.
The toy itself comes in three parts and is about 1 inch in length.
It’s not too dissimilar to the McDonalds Star Wars toy released several years ago, although much, much smaller. I was able to get one, but my local shop sold all of their eggs before I was able to get one for my friend, Mike.
I bought these Jessica Rabbit Pin Up pins from Bling Pins on Etsy. They were $10 for a pin about 3cm by 5cm. The badges come in four colours; Yellow, Red, Orange and Brown.
I bought one of each
They’re very much a take of Dominic Marco’s “Corellian Pin Up Girl“, but worth getting for my badge collection.
