I’ve been seeing photos of the Galaxy’s Edge Millennium Falcon toy. Essentially it’s the BMF but with new, Kenner inspired packaging, (which I really like).The inside looks the same and the escape shuttle is still included, but this version has several features that separate it from the original BMF:
- Comes with 6 Porgs, Chewbacca and Hondo Ohnaka
- A swappable radar dish (OT and ST)
- Action sounds from both the OT and ST.
Due for release in August 2020 and priced at $400. I have been waitlisted for it on Forbidden Planet here in the UK. Fingers crossed I can get one.
Up on a timed release this weekend is Devin Scheoffler’s prints of the Original Star Wars Trilogy. Based around various helmet’s from the Trilogy, each print features several key scenes from that movie. The minimalist titles are pretty cool, too.
I wasn’t going to get them at first as i didn’t think they featured the Falcon enough to warrent getting a set for my collection. I changed my mind Sunday though and bought them.
The Fourth (A New Hope)
The Fifth (The Empire Strikes Back)
I must confess that i would’ve had Boba Fett down for this one.
The Sixth (Return of the Jedi)
This one is my favourite, I think.
The edition size will be determined on 06/07/20 at 21:00 PT. Each print is 16″ by 24″ so framing them will be simple. They’re $45 each.
These “Micropopz” were released in 2017 as an exclusive from the French supermarket chain Leclerc. It’s a small collection of 25 figures from the Star Wars movies. Each figure is about 1.5 inches and has small sucker on the bottom.
With no Luke, Han, Leia or Rey, it’s an strange set of figures, if you ask me. I do like the look of the force ghost figures,though.
The set comes neatly packaged inside a card Millennium Falcon case. I don’t parley Francais, but it looks like the figures are used in some sort of game on the inside flap of the case. I’ll be able to take a closer look when it arrives.
I have similar items in my collection, such as the “Rollinz” i got from Italy a few years ago.
Le Creuset is a well known brand of quality cooking pots and equipment. Last year they started a licence for cook wares based on Star Wars. A little wierd, but okay. They released a Millennium Falcon trivet as part of this line.
Made from silicone, it’s microwave and dishwasher safe, (not that i’ll be using it). The trivet is 20cms in diameter and 5mm thick and is around £15. There is a Death Star one too, but i don’t have much interest for that.
I’m not sure is Le Creuset still has the StarWars licence.
With summer just around the corner, this hand made wood burner may be just what you need for the garden.
Hand made to order by Burned by Design here in the UK, each burner is made from 3mm steel and is 74 x 38 x 40 cms. The Star Wars logo on the engine is a nice touch in my opinion.
They’re £649 each and overseas shipping it available. The lead time on one of these is 6 to 8 weeks. I’m on furlough at the moment, so i won’t be getting one this year. Maybe next year.
Check out their shop as there are plenty more Science Fiction related burners. I think my favourite is the Phoenix and the Star Trek globe.
Dark Ink are selling Mark Daniels “Welcome to Bespin & Cloud City” 7 colour, metallic ink, lithograph prints.
Showcasing the Falcon’s escorted approach to cloud city at the top with Slave 1 on it’s landing pad at the bottom. The regular version is limited to an edition size of 250 and are $50 each.
The Variant version has a slight pink background colour compared to the yellow of the original. It’s limited to a 150 piece edition size and these are $60 each.
Both prints are 12″ by 24″, so an off the peg frame should be easy to find.
It’s a nice print and Bespin has always been my favourite part of The Empire Strikes Back. I have ordered both.
Bill Madia paints his “Movies in Miniature” work on a canvas measuring 2″ by 4″. Genre movies and TV such as Alien, Batman, Babylon 5, Farscape, Superman, Star Trek and of course, Star Wars.
He has painted the Millennium Falcon on several occasions and in all of her forms. I was able to reserve four paintings pending the mail services restarting after the current Covid-19 outbreak.
I think they’re wonderful and will look very nice on my shelves.
Each is an original hand painted piece of art on a 2″ by 4″ canvas. They’re aproximately $50 each with a suitable display stand and free shipping throughout the mainland USA.
There are others on his feed, but they’re all sold.
A New Hope
The Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
The Last Jedi
Check out Bill’s Instagram feed and DM him if you’re interested in any of his work.
These polybag Lego Millennium Falcon kits were a gift in the Lego magzine.
911607 (released in 2018) is of the Original Trilogy Millennium Falcon.
911949 was released in 2019 to coincide with the Solo movie at the cinema.
I bought both off of ebay for around £6 each. I’m not sure if I’ll build them, but they do close a couple of holes in my Lego Millennium Falcon collection.
The Mover and Shaker Co have released a series of 3 Star Wars cocktail strainers. The Smuggler is their take on the Millennium Falcon.
They’re $55 each and are 6″ by 4″, it’s cut from a piece of 1.5 mm thick Stainless steel.
It looks like a good quality product and will be an unusual addition to my collection.
There are two other strainers in the set. Red Five (X-Wing)
And That’s No Moon (Death Star).
I think it’s a nice line and i look forward to seeing where they take this.
Foor items for my collection are something of a rarity, so I was really pleased to have won this auction for a Build Your Own Millennium Falcon Gingerbread cookie.
Made by Park Avenue Foods, It arrived from Australia in surprisingly good condition. The cookie is about 8″ long. Everything is pre made and it comes with the icing and toppings. All you need to do is build it. Delicious!
There is a Gingerbread house from the Canada that i’m looking for too.
