Star Wars Prints by Devin Scheoffler

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)

Devin Schoeffler ROTJ

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.

Star Wars Micropopz from Leclerc

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.

Micropopz 2

I have similar items in my collection, such as the “Rollinz” i got from Italy a few years ago.

Millennium Falcon trivet from Le Creuset

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.

Le Creuset TrivetMade 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.

Millennium Falcon wood burner

With summer just  around the corner, this hand made wood burner may be just what you need for the garden.

MF Fire Pit 1

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.

MF Fire Pit 5

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.

I think they’re lovely and i really regret not getting the set. They remind me very much of Rich Davies‘s work in which the landscape is very much the centre of each piece.
