Episode VII Millennium Falcon model at Celebrations Anaheim


Celebrations Anaheim will be in full swing now. Alas, i’ll never be able to attend, but i can live vacariously through other my way of excellent web sites like Rebelscum. A massive part of this year’s celebration is Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens. No doubt you’ve seen and been overawed by the new teaser trailer and as well as all the discussion panels, there is also a display of some of the costumes and models used in filming. Below are photos taken of the Millennium Falcon fiming model. (Click on the image for full size.) Apparently, This was one of 11 Fine Molds kits that was used to work out the logistics of the full scale build.

I particularly like the engine details in this model. I’m also not sure how i feel about the new antenna. I suppose it’s a bit sleeker than the old dish. I’m sure i’ll get used to it, soon. Thanks to Rebelscum for the photos. Check out the full gallery here. I’m hoping we’ll see an actual filming model some day soon.

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.
