ACME Archives have released a new print my Dave Nestler called “Let The Wookie Win“. It’s a scene depicting Chewie and Artoo’s Dejarik chess game from A New Hope and it’s very similar to Jim Ferguson’s work of the same name.
The Canvas version is 16″ by 21.5″ and is limited to an edition size of 95 pieces for a rather pricey $395. The paper version is a slightly smaller size of 12″ by 16″ and the edition size is 150 pieces but its a much more reasonable price of $89.
I must confess that i think the perspective on this piece is a little squiffy (yes, that’s a proper art term) and Han’s position is where the back of the couch should be. Looking a Dave’s website and his pin up work i can’t help thinking that this is a below par piece of work from him and would’ much preferred some nose art more akin to his Pin Up work.
If i do decide to pick one of these up, it’ll be on the ACME sale on the 22nd of May and it’ll be the paper version.

Santa Cruz have the Star Wars license and make some nice skate and longboard decks. One of which is this scene of the Millennium Falcon flying through the asteroid field.
The decks come in two sizes. The longboard is 36.5″ long by 9.5″ wide and is $182 and the skateboard deck is 38.7″ long by 8.26″ wide and is $59.95. Bear in mind that this is for the deck only and everything else needed to build this board is extra. You can also pick up this Vader Deck that features the Falcon.
Alas, tracking one of these in the UK is proving difficult.
I’ve seen these for a while on ebay, but i haven’t considered picking one up as the shipping makes it a little prohibitive for a minor item, so i’m going to pass unless i see this in the UK.
You can pick them up on ebay from $10 to $15.
Amazon have these Star Wars Band Aids by Johnson and Johnson. The box comes with a limited edition tin featuring either the Millennium Falcon, Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing Fighter, Darth Vader’s TIE Fighter or the Death Star.
Another one i didn’t see coming.
I have a few key chains in my collection and i do like them. This one is by Bioworld and rather stylish in my opinion. I appreciate that this is a graphic and not a photo of the actual item. Still, it looks official and i have some Bioworld collectibles and i think they’re great quality.
Looking through Toy Palace i came across this Millennium Falcon Spatula by UG Toys that’s up for preorder and due for release on the 31st of July 2015.I must confess that i didn’t see that coming. :) I preordered instantly.
