So the team at The Brick Fan have reported that at this years San Diago Comic Con (SDCC) Lego will be selling an Exclusive version of the Millennium Falcon cockpit (75512) from Solo: A Star Wars Story.
I think it’s great and will try and find one.
The box looks a little different too. Almost like it’s styled in the same manner as an old comic.
The set has 203 pieces and they’re selling for $40. I don’t known what the run size is, but expect this to be sold out.
The set comes with Han Solo and Chewie mini figs.
Expect to pay massively inflated prices on Ebay if you want to add this to your collection.
Seven20 debuted their new Star Wars line at this years NY Toy Fair. It’s a great licence that has something to offer everyone. They have a line of cute plushes called “Scenez”. Each set details a specific scene from the Star Wars movies. Be warned, they are cute.
The Han and Chewie set from Solo: A Star Wars Story, has the Millennium Falcon and I have to say that I like it.
They look like they’re pretty good quality. I have no idea if these will be made available to buy in the UK.
ANH Death Star Battle, which is just awesome! The Death Star opens up so that you can put the other toys inside).
And the Cantina. (This is especially cute, in my opinion.)
So, I seem to have made a statement about not collecting Lando’s Millennium Falcon and yet here I am posting more things for it. 🙂
This image of Lando Calrissian’s Millennium Falcon by Guillermo Ortega is the cover art for Metropoli Magazine (a Spanish newspaper supplement), and has to be a must for Millennium Falcon collectors, right?
Made as an imaginary model of Lando’s Millennium Falcon, it’s a great image (and I suspect that the magazines are long sold out.)
Guillermo is based in the UK and his background is in comics, although he has been working for the Metropoli magazine for a little over two years. The idea came from his art director, Rodrigo Sanchez.
You can read a nice interview with Guillermi on Jedinews.
I can’t say that I’ve ever considered the Build A Bear workshops to expand my Millennium Falcon collection, but here you go. They too have released a small, stuffed version of Lando’s Millennium Falcon as seen in Solo that you can put one of your toys inside.
It was only £24, so I thought that I’d get one as it definitely comes under the unusual. I really home they release a regular version later.
It is time for SDCC once more and Hasbro will be selling this exclusive Han Solo “Exogorth Escape” figurine from their 6″ Black line of action figures. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t be particularly interested in a Han Solo figure, but this set comes in a rather handsome Millennium Falcon box.
Another nice touch for me is that the box slides open in the middle to reveal a small display of Han at the bottom of the Millennium Falcon ramp.
The set comes with a Mynock and will be available in limited quantities for $34.99.
The box art is very well done in my opinion. I wonder who the artist is? As his is an SDCC exclusive, my best chance is either eBay or see if someone from the Rebelscum Forums will to pick one up for me.
Nice though, isn’t it?
Bandai is another of those Brands whose products from Solo that I will add to my collection without a second thought. Their models are superb and this 1:144 version of Lando Calrissian’s Millennium Falcon is no exception.
Approximately 15cms long, the escape pod can be displayed separately on it’s own stand.
The model also has lighting for the engines and comes with seated figures of Han, Chewie and Lando which can be displayed in the cockpit or the lounge area. It’s a shame that L3-37 isn’t included as well.
There are also two laser effects as well.
So, I was looking through HobbyLink Japan so see what’s new new from the Far East. This Star Wars “Paper Theatre” cutaway model of the Millennium Falcon by a company called Ensky. I have to say, I think that this is awesome.
It looks like it’s based on the DK Cutaway by Kent Remillard. Made from wood, paper and PET, it is 15.4 cms wide, 10 cms tall and 4.2 cms deep. Priced at JPY3, 000 (approximately $30) and is pretty great value for money.
Unfortunately, HLJ aren’t taken preorders for it, but you can see that it’s due for release on the 30th June, so not too long to wait.
You can also pick up an R2-D2 kit in the same style.
As usual, I am disappointed that it is the Falcon as we see her in the Sequel Trilogy so I do hope that a version of the original trilogy is released at a later time.
