Franklin Mint’s Gold Falcon


I have the Franklin Mint’s pewter Millennium Falcon and i didn’t find out about the gold one until i saw it in Gus and Duncan’s guide to Star Wars collectibles at the begining of this year. I would imagine that this would have been released at about the same time. I’d like to know if it was a US only release and i’m curious to know how many of these were made.

Every now and then i’ll see one on ebay. I lost out on one a couple of months ago as it went for $140. At least i know what to expect next time. I think that the two of them would look very nice next to each other, but I would’t say that this would be a collecting grail for me, i do want one though. A lot.

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.
