Wonder World by Kenner


I’ve been looking through various collector sites searching for Millennium Falcon items that i haven’t yet discovered and came across the “Wonder World” by Hasbro.

Dated 1995, it’s part of the Power of the Force range and looks pretty interesting. (I’d be interested to see how much like Micro Machines the spacecarf are.)

From what i can see, you fill the tank up with water and a special powder turns the water into a gel. You can then float various ships, laser beams and asteroids to make your own space battles. 🙂

I can’t see this having much longevity as far as play value, but it’s an interesting item. You can pick them up pretty cheaply on ebay, but shipping to the UK can be prohibitive.

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.

    I have one of these and to be honest there’s nothing in the set to get excited about except for the Falcon itself. You might think about asking the seller to open the box and send you the Falcon alone — it would be a lot cheaper to ship.

    The vehicles are made not of plastic but a hard rubber. I know that time can be cruel to rubber and they do get literally impossible to dust — I keep mine under a clear plastic dome salvaged from some toy packaging so I can display it without worrying about dust sticking to the surface.
