Millennium Falcon chess piece by Danbury Mint.


Ebay have a couple of very interesting items today. Back in 1996, Danbury mint released a rather nice Star Wars chess set with the Millennium Falcon as the queen. pasquariellocorp is selling the piece (paired with an Ewok Pawn)  here.

It’s a very interesting piece and one that i’d imagine doesn’t come up too often. If Mike doesn’t have this, i might bid for it when i get paid. (That’s if they’ll ship to the UK.)

About mffanrodders

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 do have this and I love it. I like how the Falcon is literally put on a pedestal! I looked up my old receipt and in 2007 I paid $28 shipped for just the Falcon. I know these don’t come around much, but this does seem a bit overpriced.

    Very nice item indeed. If I may add, I also want one of this?
