Millennium Falcon Model Kit by Argonauts


I’ve just seen this Argonauts model kit on ebay. I’ve never seen one of these before, so i do believe the seller when he says that it’s quite rare.

Argonauts Model 1It’s from Japan and at the time it was considered the best model kit available. It’s dated from 1994, so it preceeds the Fine Molds Falcon.

Argonauts Model 2 Argonauts Model 3 Argonauts Model 4 Argonauts Model 5 Argonauts Model 6 Argonauts Model 7 Argonauts Model 8The scale is 1:44. The original retail price was $85, but this one’s going for $300 which i’m led to believe is very reasonable for this kit.n Unfortunately i simply can’t afford it at the moment so i’ll have to pass.

Thanks to Star Wars Models.com for the images.

After a long wait,I saw one on EBay and put in the minimum bid of $200. Luckily for me, no one else bid so I got it for the lowest price. (I’m led to believe that $300 is a fair price for this kit.

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.
