Arcade 1979 by Christian Slade


I have seen Christian Slade’s work on the Rebelscum forums. He has taken various vehicles from the Star Wars universe and painted them as arcade rides. It’s nostalgic work as i remember this style of ride. “Arcade 1979” has the Millennium Falcon.

Arcade 1979It’s limited to an edition size of 50 pieces and is $175 for a 9″ by 11 1/2″ print.  I would like to get one, but it won’t be too high on my too buy list. The others in the set are;

Arcade 1977 which features Luke’s Landspeeder.

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.
