Millennium Falcon by Ulises Farinas

I saw this Millennium Falcon image by Ulises Farinas from the new Where’s The Wookiee 2 search and find book and had to post it.

Where's the Wookiee 2 b

The book features several busy images from the Star Wars universe in which the reader has to look for various Star Wars things or characters (including our favourite Kashyyykie resident) in a variety of Star Wars locations. (In this case, Docking Bay 94.) They’re actually quite fun.

The books are available on Amazon for £6.20.

I wonder if the images are digital or hand drawn.

Solo Millennium Falcon from Incredi-Builds

Incredi-builds are releasing a pretty sweet version of Lando’s Millennium Falcon from Solo: A Star Wars story.

It’s 18″ when built. I wonder if the escape ship is detachable?

It includes a full cover hardback book detailing many aspects of the Millennium Falcon and boasts some previously unseen content, although I suspect that the $180 retail price on their web site is an error.

I have the original trilogy Incredi-Builds Millennium Falcon in my collection already although I have to confess that I haven’t gotten around to making it.

Thanks to Fantha Tracks for the heads up.

Millennium Falcon from WorksbyAHurst.

Last weekend Jason Hurst announced on his Instagram page that he was going to auction off a prototype Millennium Falcon plaque. It’s made from cut steel on cherry wood and It’s a nice piece. After posting and falling in love with his awesome steel Millennium Falcon model last year I had to bid.

At 11″ by 20.5″, it’s quite a size. I bid high straight away and I must apologise to those that were also bidding, as I may have ruined the experience for them. That most certainly wasn’t my intention.

There are some rough edges to work out, such as the outline just above the cockpit, but Jason says that this is a prototype and he’s ironing out the kinks in his template. Still, a nice first daft in my opinion.

Shipping’s going to be expensive.

Millennium Falcon by Joel Timpson

I really like this Millennium Falcon image by Australian artist Joel Timpson. It’s got style, a nice sense of colour and is pretty unique in execution. Not quite adult in tone, but not childish, either.il_fullxfull.1544265995_267dThe prints are £14 each plus shipping from Australia.They’re about 11.5 inches by 16.5 (A3). Check out his shop.

Solo Pursuit by Chris Skinner

Still on the Dark Ink website still to purchase is Chris Skinner’s “Solo Pursuit” of the Millennium Falcon as she evades a Star Destroyer in the Maw from Solo.

It’s printed on mirror foil, so it’ll be interesting to see how this translates to the actual print.

Priced at $50 plus shipping and as with the other prints, it’s limited to an edition of 250 and is 18″ by 24″. It’ll be easy to find a frame for it.

I’ll pick this and Andy Fairhurst’s Solo Escape next month.

Rich Davies “City In The Clouds”

Looking back through the Dark Ink Star Wars prints still available, I came across this “City In The Clouds” print by Rich Davies. The panoramic view afforded to us in the image is simply beautiful. I don’t know how I missed it.

I love the fact that the beautiful scenery is the main focus of Rich’s work within the Star Wars universe.

Bespin is my favourite part of the Empire Strikes Back. I love the colour, Han and Leia’s loves story comes to fruition and it has my favourite scene as well as the best music, (the crescendo as the Falcon takes off and escapes is arguably my favourite piece of John William’s score).

This print is $39 and limited to an edition size of 295 and is 27″ by 7.2″.

Also on the Dark Ink site is his Odyssey prints.

Day Break On Hoth

X-Wings at Twilight

Dogfight at Sunset (this one I bought as well.)

Forest Moon Duel

As with the Bespin print, the main focus of the images are the scenery and prints are all 27″ by 7.12″. I hope that Rich returns to the Star Wars universe and continues the series.

“Outmanoeuvre Them” by Danny Haas

It’s been a slow few months as far as my Millennium Falcon collection goes, so I was delighted to see this print by Danny Haas released on ACME‘s Dark Ink site.

Called “Outmanoeuvre Them” it’s a delightful cockpit image of Falcon just before she evades some Star Destroyers in The Empire Strikes Back. It should display very well with my Juan Esteban Rodriguez Star Wars print.

They’re a very reasonable $40 each and the edition size is limited to 250. The print is a respectable 18″ by 24″ is size.

All we need now is a similarly themed Return of the Jedi print.
