Acme Archives and Dark Ink have a beautiful set of prints by Phase_runner with each print depicting a planet and a ship approaching it. Dagobah, Tattooine and Mustafar are the first three and I hope that Phase_Runner continues the series.
The Falcon looks good.
Dagobah with Luke’s X-Wing Fighter
Mustafar with Darth Vader’s Tie Fighter
I’ve been really impressed with prints such as Mark Chilcott and Rich Davies in which the theme is minimal and it’s the background that is important. This is a new take on that theme. I must confess that I am surprised by the inclusion of Mustafar and that these weren’t released by Trilogy. Perhaps Endor would be too similar to Dagobah.
The prints are a decent 36″ by 12″ and limited to an edition size of 250. They are $45 each or you can buy the set for $125. I have regretted not buying complete sets in the past so I opted for the set on this one. I’d have to consider others, if they are released as well. (It’s the completist in me. 🙂 )
I thought i’d have a little look to see what’s on Ebay yesterday and stumbled across a pair of “Leen Customs” enamel pins of the Millennium Falcon and the Mandalorian’s Razor’s Edge. They were pretty expensive, but a little search of the internet showed that they were well priced, as Leen Customs pins are quite saught after.
The original price for this was a very reasonable $10. A nice profile image, in my opinion. At 1.7″ by 1″, these pins are not large. I”m not sure of the edition sizes on these.
Again, a $10 price. This one is slightly smaller at 1.5″ by 1″.
It was also available in a “Clan of 2” pinset with Mando and the Child for $25.
There is a Slave 1 pin as well, but it comes with another pint of Boba Fett and Jango Fett called “Hunters for Hire“.
All of these pins have long sold out. Leen Customs badges are mostly cars and they occasionally dabble in Star Wars. The pins are highly collectable and the after market prices are insane, with some of them as high as $400.
Ruggable have released a line of washable Star Wars floor mats. Rangeing in size from 2.5′ by 7′ ($109) all the way up to 8’by 10′ ($399), so there is a size for every collector. There are some nice designs, but there are only two that I would probably pick up.
The first is this “Rebellion” Rug.
A nice, minimalist image of the Falcon escorted by two X-Wing’s and an A-Wing. Simple, but effective.
The second rug that interests me is “Smugglers“. This one comes in either Grey, or R2-D2 Blue.
Personally, I’d go with the grey, but the blue is quite striking and I suppose it depends on the decor of your room, too. There are other rugs that also feature the Falcon, such as the Armada and the Ikat but they aren’t as nice, or as focused as the other two.
Thanks to Brian Heath for the spot.
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
