Beast Kingdom Millennium Falcon


My last post for 2015 is an interesting one. Beast Kingdom are releasing this “Egg Attack” floating Millennium Falcon. It uses electromagnetic attraction and repulsion to created the floating effect and I believe that this will be the first Millennium Falcon model to do so.

No details on pricing or availability, but the features include lighting on the model as well as on the levitation base, which has been styled to look like Echo Base from The Empire Strikes Back. The model itself is approximately 5.5 inches in length.

The detailing looks pretty good, although the oversize rectenna and docking ports clearly make it a toy. Still, I think it’s interesting and will probably pick two up so that I can display it.

The estimated release date is June 2016 and it will retail for approximately 4990 Japanese Yen.

Thanks to Dis Kingdom for the heads up.

as well as the Falcon, they also showcased a pretty neat X-Wing at this years SDCC.

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.

    That retail price seems rather low for such a function. A website that I like going to (Hobby Link Japan) has reasonable pricing on a similar item: Egg Attack’s floating Iron Man MkII

    As you can see, it has the same cartoony aesthetic but a more substantial price.

    have seen it recently in Hong Kong together with the Delorean. Both made a good impession though I don’t like the Falcon’s design. The Delorean on the other side was awesome!
    It might be noted, that the model might spin or wobble a little bit

      I know what you mean about the Falcon’s design. It makes it look like a toy and I don’t think that it should be. I think it’ll make a good talking point when displayed.
