Wood WorX Star Wars model from Colorific

Wood WorX by Colorific in Australia have a wonderful range of Star Wars spaceships in their lineup, including the Millennium Falcon.

I’m an in the box collector and I think the packaging is quite nice. I also like that they’ve included the landing gear, too.

Each kit is ready to go as everything you need, (Instructions, glue, brush, paint and stickers) is all included.

The Millennium Falcon kit is made using 90+ pieces of pre-cut plywood and is around 26.5 cms long, 19.5 cms wide and 8 cms tall.

Millennium Falcon by MYC Sculptures

I’ve been low key following MYC sculptures for a while now as they have a really nice line in sculpted figurines and model ships from the Star Wars franchise. Today they announced that they will look to release a Millennium Falcon model from A New Hope.

What is also interesting is that we well as releasing a 32″ version, there’s also going to be a smaller 1:48 version which is about 28″ (72 cms).

The 32″ “Studio Scale” will be my preferred model as it’d pair very nicely with my Master Replicas Millennium Falcon model. More information to follow, but this is wonderful news.

MYC Sculptures also tend to offer a choice of bases. For example, their AT-AT model can be bought with a plain base, a base with a couple of minimalist snowy rocks, or a Hoth diorama. This could be interesting. Will it be displayed in flight, or landed? If landed, what choices on the base design would they offer? Criminy!!!

All we need now is the Falcon as we see her in Solo.

Micro Galaxy Squadron Millennium Falcon (Batuu) variation

I do like variations and given that there are three versions of the Millennium Falcon (four, if you count the Stellar Envoy), there is plenty of scope. This Sequel Trilogy version of the Millennium Falcon is available at the Galaxy’s Edge parks at Disney.

I like the packaging on this one. As you can see, it includes the Sequel Trilogy dish and some new figures. The play features remain the same, but i like that they’ve redone the packaging to show them off.

The new figures include Chewbacca, Vi Moradi, Hondo Ohnaka and R5-P8.

I had hoped that Ebay would be my friend in getting hold of one of these, but i haven’t seen them at all. Still, i’ll keep looking.

Jazzinc Navi Computer Diorama

I adore Jazzinc Dioramas and I think that they are my favourite brand at the moment, so any Millennium Falcon related items from them are an instabuy as far as I am concerned. I saw today that they’re releasing the Navigation Computer as a separate diorama to be displayed in smaller display cases, such as the Ikea Detolf, or Besta.

To be fair, I recently bought their cargo hold expansion, so I have this already, but It’s quite big and I’m not likely to be able to display it for a while. I bought this especially so that I can at least display it now.

I think at $399 plus shipping, it includes the nav computer, the chair and the rear wall, so it’s reasonably priced in my opinion.

Millennium Falon by K-Stix

I saw these “K-Stix” Millennium Falcon popsicle stick model on their instagram site. I thought that they were nice, simple and something that would be enjoyable to make. At the time, the Millennium Falcon ones were out of stock.

Each model comes with everything you need, including pre-cut sticks, an instruction manual and some glue. All you need is some clamps. The models are a decent size at around 21cms by 15.5 cms.

New ones are added occasionally and I particulartly like their A-Wing, B-Wing and Y-Wing fighters.

Building popsicle stick models seems somewhat old fashioned to me and it makes me think of something that can be enjoyed as a father and son hobby. Quant, sweet and quite creative. I really like them and I’m hoping to pick up the Millennium Falcon model posted to the UK.

Star Wars Make Up by Pat Magrath Labs

I thought that this licence is very interesting. Pat MaGrath Labs are releasing a range of Star Wars cosmetics on the 16/12/2022 with various Star Wars packaging.

They actuially look pretty cool and there are four pigments that have a really nice Millennium Falcon packaging. They’re priced £25 each or all four for £89. I intend to get “Falcon Noir” and perhaps “Smuggler’s Spice”. They’re definitely on the more unusual side of my collecting habit and I’ll check in again as the range expands to see if there will be further Falcon related make up.

Wow, sold out already and i have to settle for the Metallic Crimson.

Unknown Montage Illustration

I’ve been following Heritage Auctions since they auctioned the Brian Sauriol Cutaway Millennium Falcon painting. They specialise in collectibles and I think they’re my best chance of finding some of the rarer and more unusual Millennium Falcon related items.

I’ve recently found myself looking back through their previously sold items, I can see a lot of story boards and such, but this illustration caught my eye and I think that it is a very nice painting.

I’ve never seen it before and I am very curious as to what the illustration was for, who the artist is, etc. It kind of reminds me of the awesome John Berkly artwork used for the Parker Brothers video game.

The HA site states that it is an original piece of art and gives the dimentions as 13″ by 18″ dates it at 1995. Its monogramed, but I don’t recognise it

Millennium Falcon cockpit by Padawan Bear patches.

These Millennium Falcon cockpit patches from Padawan Bear Patches are based off the Kenner Millennium Falcon and are very nostalgic, IMO. They’re really nice and if you’re looking for a great little stocking filler, this could be it.

The patches are 3.5″ and only £5 each. I ordered two.

There’s also an enamel pin in the same style that I ordered. These are 1.5″ and have two posts on the back and are £11 each.

I really like them.

Millennium Falcon doorway by Boba’s Hutt

Boba’s Hutt on Etsy has some lovely, small diorama settings scaled for the Hasbro Black series of Star Wars action figures. This one of the Millennium Falcon doorway is pretty cool and looks to be very well made.

It’s £45 and with Christmas just around the corner, I think it makes a great stocking filler.

I think that these are very nice ways to display your toys and there are other great dioramas from all Star Wars, but I especially like the AT-ST from Return of the Jedi. But then, I am biased toward the Original Trilogy.

I don’t have any of the Hasbro Black figures, but I’ll need to pick up and Han/Chewie paid after this.

Millennium Falcon from The Koin Club

This “Hidden Secrets” Millennium Falcon coin is available from th Koin Club.

Made from iron and silver plated, the coins are 32mm and come in a themed presentation card that includes a small summary. The hidden secret is revealed by a small UV light which is provided. Quite good value at £15.

I quite like it, but a small complaint as i think that the card and the coin should match, shouldn’t they?
