Some time ago, eFX Collectibles announced that they were going release the Millennium Falcon in their “Precision Casts” line. This was to be a mixed media, unlimited range which would also have lighting and a pretty decent Diorama base for a $300 price range.
We’re still awaiting some more information on the price and release date, not to mention some more photos. eFX are notoriously slow on their release times. I’m really hoping that there will be something heard at the Star Wars Celebration next month. Still, from what i’ve seen of eFX’s stuff so far, i have no concerns whatsoever about the quality of their releases. I think that this line, if done properly will become eFX’s main line and back bone of their business. As with the Sideshow one, i do hope that they release some with the ROTS Steller Envoy colours. I’ve been looking for something along those lines for quite a while.
Needless to say that i will definately be ordering one, but come on eFX it’s been a year. Futher posts to follow.
Seeing as there’s no product to blog about, i thought that i’d merge all the posts on this.

Well, the SDCC is here and eFX have announced quite a few new items, but don’t seem to have done anything with their upcoming Precision Casts Millennium Falcon model. If anything, it looks like their prototype received a bit of storage damage since last year as the deflector dish is missing.
Come on eFX, what’s the hold up? The sculpt looks great, the base looks great too. All we need now is the painted version to tease us into submitting our credit card details. We’ve waited for at least a year already, so how come you’re no further along with this? There’s a lot of people that want this Falcon, as well as myself. I’m a little cheesed off to say the least. But let us remain pragmatic, this will come out sooner or later and there’s plenty of Millennium Falcon related stuff still to get. I would like to have this for next year though.

It’s been over a year now since eFX announced their Precision Cast Millennium Falcon model and there doesn’t appear to have progress. MrJeff from eFX posted this on the Rebelscum forums as to why it’s taking them so long to make their Precision Casts Millennium Falcon.
MrJeff stated that “We are still showing the MF because there is always a chance that circumstances can change that would allow us to move forward with the project. Right now it’s a $499 item in resin with a very low production run. If we can sell 2500 units then we can do it in die-cast and bring the price down some. There are a few other scenarios being looked at, so until any final determinations have been made we’ll continue to show it and gauge interest.”
I don’t really see their $500 price point too excessive. Code 3’s Falcon was 8 years ago and doesn’t have the level of detail that this one has, so it’d be reasonable to assume that it’d be a little more expensive. Besides, how about a limited edition run of the Falcon in Stellar Envoy colours?
