Celebrations Anaheim will be in full swing now. Alas, i’ll never be able to attend, but i can live vacariously through other my way of excellent web sites like Rebelscum. A massive part of this year’s celebration is Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens. No doubt you’ve seen and been overawed by the new teaser trailer and as well as all the discussion panels, there is also a display of some of the costumes and models used in filming. Below are photos taken of the Millennium Falcon fiming model. (Click on the image for full size.) Apparently, This was one of 11 Fine Molds kits that was used to work out the logistics of the full scale build.

I particularly like the engine details in this model. I’m also not sure how i feel about the new antenna. I suppose it’s a bit sleeker than the old dish. I’m sure i’ll get used to it, soon. Thanks to Rebelscum for the photos. Check out the full gallery here. I’m hoping we’ll see an actual filming model some day soon.

“Friendly Ambush” by Guy Vasilovich

Celebrations Anaheim is now upon us and ACME Archives have released this print by Guy Vasilovich of the Millennium Falcon approaching Bespin.

imageStunning, isn’t it? The print itself is 16″ by 28.5″ on canvas and limited to an edition size of 150 pieces. $325 from ACME’s website.

You can also buy it on paper for $165, but this image is a little smaller at 11″ by 20.5″. Again, with an edition size of 150 pieces.

Personally, I think that this is stunning and will be picking one up as soon as possible. Here are a couple of close ups.



Man, the original of this must look incredible. I’ll post links when I can get to a PC.

Small Star Wars Umbrella by Taito.

In 2010 Taito released a series of small Star Wars umbrellas in Japan that are pretty cool. The handle is designed to look like a lightsaber hilt.

Taito Umbrella 1 Taito UmbrellaOpen it up and you have some nice Star Wars images, including the Millennium Falcon. Shame they didn’t paint the umbrella shaft.

They’re discontinued now and I don’t know where i might be able to pick one of these up. I should take a look at Ebay.co.jp to see if anything’s there.

Bassnectar Hat Pin

I saw this “Bassnectar” pin on Etsy and rather foolishly thought that i’d sit on it until payday.

Bassnectar Hat PinAlas, it has been sold.

From what i can gather, these pins were sold at Bassnectar concerts. There are a few Star Wars ones.
