The car is in 1:18 scale, but it doesn’t say how big it is. These retail for $35 and has light and sound.

Hot Wheels Millennium Falcon toy

MY google plus newsfeed just pinged up with this new Hot Wheels Millennium Falcon race set from Mattel for the Star Wars Character Cars. It’s for their line of “The Last Jedi” toys and should be hitting the shelves soon for $39.99. DWM85_09

I kinda like it. If you have a young family it looks like it’d be a lot of fun. I’m not sure if i’ll get one  or not as i’m thinking of just collecting the Falcon from the Original Trilogy and the Han Solo movie, so hopefully they’ll release a new version with the proper dish soon. 🙂

Here’s the blurb from the Mattel Website.

“The Hot Wheels® Star Wars Millennium Falcon playset allows kids to reenact their favorite scenes from the Star Wars universe using their collection of Hot Wheels Character Cars. The Millennium Falcon has broken down and must be fixed for battle before the First Order launches their attack! Take the elevator up to fix the hyperdrive, tune up the engine and man the guns. When ready to launch an attack, lower your vehicle into the Smuggler’s Bay, aim carefully and then launch your Character Car along the Hot Wheels track and towards the First Order to take them out and defeat the dark side! Other features include lights and 20+ Star Wars sounds. Set includes an exclusive Chewbacca Character Car!

  • Launch your character car out of the Falcon to take out the First Order.
  • This stellar Star Wars set includes lights and over 20 sound FX.
  • Prepare the Millennium Falcon Track Set for battle by fixing the hyperdrive and checking the engines!
  • The set includes a working elevator that lifts your Character Car up to areas in the Falcon that need fixing.
  • Lower your character cars into the Smugglers bay then launch them out of the Falcon, along the Hot Wheels track towards the First Order to take them out!
  • Other features include lights on the guns and 20+ Star Wars sound FX.”

Pez Millennium Falcon Tin

I bought some Pez over the weekend and i thought i’d take a look to see if there were any Millennium Falcon related items to look for. I didn’ find any dispensers, but i did come across this tin. To tie in with the release of Star Wars Episode VIII, Pez are releasing this Collectors tin containing four Pez dispensers (including an exlusive TFA Han Solo) and a six pack of Pez candy.

Pez Tin

It’s priced at $14.99 and is due to ship in Autumn.

Unfortunately, the tin only ships to the US, so Ebay is my best option to picking one of these up.

Lepin 05033 Millennium Falcon

When the Lego UCS Millennium Falcon was originally released, I wasn’t focus collecting. I always meant to buy one, but it sold out and like many collectors, i was just too late. Now that i’m focus collecting, i realise that i’ve made a huge mistake. (I mean, i had one in my hands and put it back. 🙂 ) The second hand market for one of these is ridiculous, and prices range from $3, 000 to $10, 000. With those kind of prices, i do appreciate that i’m never going to own one of these. Sooo…

Lepin is a chinese firm that produces a set that “echoes” the Lego 10179 UCS Millennium Falcon.

 

I’ve been looking around to see how the Lepin compares to the original Lego set, and whilst the quality isn’t as high as Lego’s, it’s still rated as quite highly, as shown by this review on Monkey’s Can Game. I thought i’d take the plunge. I bought mine from AliExpress for about $200 with free shipping. I must confess that i do feel a little guilty as i’m essensially condoning a knock off set.

 

More to follow when the set arrives.

Millennium Falcon Notebook

Things have been a little slow for me, collection-wise. I did get this rather handby Millennium Falcon note book, though.

The Falcon is from the new Trilogy and i can’t help wanting one from the Original trilogy.

I bought mine from Amazon for £6.99.
