Millennium Falcon Power Bank

I’m hoping that this 10000 mAh power bank by mTime is also available, (although I cannot find any reliable information on it or the company at all). It may be a mock up, or perhaps a product prototype, but I sure hope I can get one as this would be mighty useful.

he packaging is a standard Star Wars black in appearance. The power bank itself is approximately 150mm by 109mm by 34mm and weighing in at 310 grams. Power Bank 5

It has a Standard USB and a USB C connection, so you should be able to charge up most of your gadgets. It also has a light up engine that you can turn on and off.

Millennium Falcon Wireless Charger

I’ve seen a couple of very nice and very useful Mobile accessories relating to the Millennium Falcon this week. The first is this very cool and very useful wireless smartphone charger which will have your phone ready for the Kessel Run in no time.

Wireless Charger

Connected to a wall socket by a USB C connector, it offers fast charging for your mobile device. I love it, although my GF thinks it’s just more junk for my collection.

Overall measurements are 7″ by 5″ by 1″ and appears to retail for $50, (although I cannot for the life of me locate any genuine retailers online).

Wireless Charger 2

The engine lighting up when your phone is fully charged is a really nice touch in my opinion.

I’m not sure if they’re available in the UK, but i’d love to get hold of a box. Displaying them could be a problem, though. 🙂

Millennium Falcon Cockpit from JazzInc Dioramas

In 2015, Hot-Toys showcased some of their Star Wars 1/6th scale collectable figures within a diorama of the Millennium Falcon Cockpit. Unfortunately they let the collecting community down by not producing this truly epic piece. Some talented modellers have chosen to build their own, but I am nowhere near clever enough to consider taking something like that on.

Fortunately, JazzInc have their own range of Star Wars diorama’s especially designed to show off your 1/6th figures and have decided that they will recreate the Cockpit after the success of their hugely popular “Cargo Hold” Truscale diorama.

As you can see from these CAD drawings, they have certainly put in a lot of work into their product.

Screen grabs from their Instagram feed show just how truly massive this diorama is.

JazzInc

Highly detailed and boasting LED lighting (up to 100 on the deluxe version), I have to say that I am incredibly impressed with what they have shown of it so far and have decided to take the plunge and pre-order, (despite not owning any 1/6 scale figures). 🙂

Those that have already pre-ordered are able to upgrade to the deluxe version for a discounted price. (I will do this as soon as I see how.)

Priced at approximately £1,000 (USD$1, 200), The kit will contain:

  • The Classic Millennium Falcon Cockpit (suitable to display figurines from both the Original and Sequel movies)
  • Two Captain seats and 2 Nav seats.
  • Full bulkhead wall
  • Cockpit Canopy.
  • Light-up features.
  • Back Wall.
  • Hallway Ring.
  • Opening and Closing Cockpit Door.
  • Total weight of 15 kilos.
  • Size is 47 x 47 x 74 centimetres.

Due to be released in June 30th 2020. Prepare for a pretty large shipping costs.

I suppose that I’d better get some 1/6th scale figures now.

If you are a 1/6th collector, you should check out the JazzInc website. They have many excellent dioramas for every budget. Even Luke’s Landspeeder. Their Youtube feed has a lot if nice videos of their dios too.

JazzInc are a father and son team  who started out building these dioramas as a hobby project, working in their spare time to produce very limited edition collectors pieces.

Hyperspace Jump Experience from Magic Jump Inc.

Chris Trevas posted that some of his rear circuitry art had been repurposed for this Millennium Falcon “Hyperspace Experience” bouncy house by Magic Jump Inflatables. I thought it was well worth posting here.

743AC18F-B037-4502-8FD1-ABE0366B1131

It takes 12 “passengers” at a time and is a whopping 35′ by 30′ by 15′ and weighs in at a hefty 1, 136lbs. Price is $11, 495 (although you can buy it now at a discounted price of $9, 495). Alas, barring a lottery win, I will not be adding this to my collection at any point in the near future. 🙂

I think that it is really nicely done and includes tons of details. The outside is a really nice detailed graphic. Chewie waits outside the entrance to receive his new crew and the inside includes a built in R2 D2, bunk and the Dejarik table too.7A736029-CDB3-4C46-AAE6-F3441F9B7D0B

The holomap on the left shows a graphic of the Death Star. The cockpit features gears, switches and buttons, but I have yet to find any photos.

“Over The Mountains” by Bryan David Snuffer

I came across this original acrylic painting called “Over The Mountains” by Bryan David Snuffer on his StoreEnvy shop.

“Han Solo cruises over the mountains of Tatooine to his new employment with Jabba the Hutt.” I think that there’s a real sense of flight and motion in this painting. The sense of a new adventure about to begin.

I think that It’s rather nice and I am quite taken with it. Unfortunately, I’m still paying off my wonderful Death Star Escape original painting, so with an asking price of $1, 200, I can’t afford to pick it up just yet.

The painting itself is signed by the artist and is 12″ by 24″ and ships unframed.

I think It’d be a wonderful companion piece to Kevin Weber’s Kashyyyk Homecoming.

Kashyyyk Homecoming

It kind of wraps the Original Trilogy. Pre “A New Hope” and post “Return of the Jedi”. The two would display nicely together, don’t you think?
