Falcon Sunset by Christopher Clark is available now on the ACME Archives website. At $245 for a 20″ by 16″ canvas, it’s one of their best priced prints.

It’s a nice painting in my opinion. I love the light of the Tatooine sun and the brush strokes. The canvas is limited to an edition size of 95 prints. It is also available in paper for $125.

I will pick this up in a month, or two.

The original is Oil on board and is in George Lucas’s personal collection.

“Meet Your Destiny” by Matt Ferguson.

These Star Wars prints by Matt Ferguson are on a timed release until Friday 29th June from the Bottleneck Gallery. They’re each a kind of a collage of characters, technology and scenes that made each movie great.

The Droid You’re Looking For” (A New Hope.)

Meet Your Destiny” (The Empire Strikes Back)

Of course, this one is my favourite and I ordered it immediately. 🙂

Galaxies Collide” (Return of The Jedi)

It’s a great set, in my opinion. Each print is 18″ by 24″ and priced at $50 each or $135 for the set. I initially ordered the Empire Strikes Back print on it’s own, but thought that the A New Hope print has enough Falcon cues to warrant getting the set.

As it’s on a timed release, the edition size won’t be determined until the time has expired and the orders are counted.

The final edition size ended up being 980.

Based on Han’s evasion of the Imperial Blockade in the Millennium Falcon at Kessel. It is a nice piece and I’ll have to try and get one as I have the previous version.

This one is $40 and is a little more available as a 250 piece edition size. The print itself is 12″ by 24″.

“Darkness Shines” by Steve Thomas.

It’s that time of year when us SF fans and collectors start thinking about San Diego Comic Con. God, I love and hate SDCC. Sure, I love being able to attend the con vicariously through the eyes others, like some kind of fanboy voyeur, but I also hate seeing all the new collectibles that I want and need to add to my collection.

The latest is this beautiful chrome style print by Steve Thomas.

Simply called “Darkness Shines”, I love chrome look and the way it seems to celebrate the The Empire Strikes Back, (the darkest and arguably the best of the Original Trilogy.)

Available to buy from the Dark Ink website. But there’s a catch a you can only collect them in person from their stand, (#5629). They’re $65 each and limited to a 95 piece edition size. The prints themselves are 24″ by 36″.

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.

Star Wars Plushes by Seven20

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.)

“Make Your Own Millennium Falcon” by Guillermo Ortega

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?

Falcon-Final-Guillermo-Ortego

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.
