Hasbro’s “Hero Series” Millennium Falcon.


Rebelscum have just posted these photos of the new Millennium Falcon from Hasbro’s Hero Series.

Interesting that this is marked as Episode V and they’ve chosen Hoth on the cover art. I would’ve thought that The Empire Strikes Back would have many better scenes to showcase the Falcon.

There’s no interior to this toy, so this isn’t just a rerelease of their BMF.  Still, at two feet in length, this is going to be a serous toy. I wonder if it’ll have any electronic sounds. The toy itself looks pretty good at first glance, but I can’t see much play potential at first glance. Hopefully, this has a few surprises left in her.

image15/07/14: I’ve just seen on the Rebelscum page that this is will be released in November and will retail for $59.99. Worst news is that it will be a Walmart exclusive. I wonder if I’ll be able to get one in the UK?

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 think the reason they are featuring Hoth and Episode V is this is closely based on the 32″ studio model built for Empire by ILM. I’m already looking forward to buying one of these and accurizing it. Far more affordable than a Master Replica or Fine-molds.

    A 60cm length seems rather large for a toy to hold in my hands and swoosh around over my head 🙂 but I’ll still keep an eye out for it.

    It doesn’t do much of anything (aside from look really large and pretty cool), but I managed to get two at half price from Argos in the UK (£29.99 each) GBP 🙂
