The Hamilton collection Plates

Back in 1996 the Hamilton collection was a pretty big thing for collectors in general i suppose and for old ladies specifically. Anyway, they released several series of Star Wars themed plates and one of those series was the Vehicles and Vessels collection. There were 12 in all and one of them was the Millennium Falcon. (I have 10 of them and still need to try to track down Jabba’s Sail Barge and the Death Star for a reasonable price.)

About mffanrodders

A keen Star Wars collector since 1977, my collection focus seems to have taken on a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship. Why the Millennium Falcon? No one else seemed to have one at the time and it was fair to say that i had difficulty resisting the higher end models. My friend, icruise from Rebelscum has a superb blog for his Jabba the Hutt collection, I thought that i'd start this blog to chart my own collection of Millennium Falcon related collectibles as it increases.

    Yeah I have all 12 of these and had great difficulty in getting the two you mention in the 90s but managed eventually after a lot of shouting at Hamilton as they were no help at all. I am actually trying to sell them all at the moment but most people like yourself are just looking for one or two of the plates they are missing.

      Yeah, there are a lot of them on ebay. There are a couple of rare ones (the sail barge and teh deathstar) that i’d imagine would be pretty easy to sell.

      I must admit that i really liked these at the time and thought that they were well worth collecting. It’s a shame that they [the Hamilton Collection] were so shaky about letting people know about the other plates in the range. 😦
