News: eFX Precision Cast Millennium Falcon at SDCC


Back in the 2009 SDCC, eFX announced that they were releasing a new line of Star Wars  spaceships called the “Precision Cast”. Each model was made from mixed media and the price point would be around $300. They debuted with an unpainted, but nicely detailed model of the Millennium Falcon. The line was put on hold as eFX didn’t think that they’d be able to hold that price for the quality of the model that they wanted to release. At this years SDCC, eFX displayed a nicely painted model that looked as though it is almost ready for the shelves.

I do think that the lighting needs looking at as there’s quite a lot of bleed. I’ll be interested to hear what they’re hoping to retail this for, but i wouldn’t expect too much change from $500. Thanks to Rebelscum for these awesome photos.

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.
