Star Wars Builds: Millennium Falcon by Benjamin Harper

Benjamin Harper has created “Star Wars Builders”, a series of books with foam cutout pieces that make up a models from The Force Awakens. So Far in the series, there is the X-Wing, New Order Tie Fighter, Threepio and Artoo and, of course, the Millennium Falcon.

Star Wars Hot Wheels

I’ve been waiting for Mattel to release a Millennium Falcon “Car Ship” for their Hot Wheels line and i think that it’s pretty cool.

There’s also a battle damaged version that comes with the Death Star battle set.

Millennium Falcon car door lights

I thought that this pair of car door lights were an interesting, if a little odd, purchase for me. They project an image of the Millennium Falcon to the floor whenm the car doors are opened.

It cost me £11:59 for the pair but i won’t be installing it, this is purely a fun addition to the collection.

Star Wars Blank House Keys

I was out shopping with a friend and randomly came across this Millennium Falcon blank house key by Davenport Burgess. It’s quite nice and weighty, but i thought it was a little expensive at £6.99 and if i wanted to get the key cut it could work out to be pretty expensive.

mf-key-blanksAs a collectible, i’m glad i bought it but i will think twice about cutting it.

“She’s Still Got It” by Jerry Vanderstelt.

ACME Archives have released some more Star Wars prints, including “She’s Still Got It” by Jerry Vanderstelt. It shows the scene in Star Wars: The Force Awakens where the Falcon bursts from the forest of the Empire’s Superweapon. Obviously, I think it is gorgeous and a nice nod to Jerry’s “She’s Got It Where It Count’s, Kid”.

21″ by 36″, it’s available as both a canvas and a paper print.

I’ve been a little behind on the ACME Falcon works, but this is a must buy.
