Hasbro’s BMF

Another item that’s on the “Things still to get” pile is Hasbro’s Big Millennium Falcon or BMF for their 3 3/4 inch action figure line. For me, this is possibly the most important version of the Millennium Falcon since the Studio Scale model from Master Replicas. At two and a half feet long, it’s certainly a bit of a beast. It is supposedly nearer to a full scale for the action figures.

I have seen some people commenting that it’s not really to scale, but generally, this has been very well received among the Star Wars collecting fraternity. I think that it’s also imporatant to stress that it’s a toy. A big toy and and expensive toy at £150, but it’s still a toy and for a toy, it does look pretty damn good. There’s a lot of detail and there’s a hell of a lot of thought that’s gone into this.

Once again, i missed the boat on this. I wanted it, but at the time i was collecting Star Wars in General and not specifically the Millennium Falcon. It would appear that this was a limited edition as you don’t really see it in the shops anymore. I may have to wait for the next packaging variation before i get a chance to get this. Unless i get lucky and see one in the shops that hasn’t been sold yet. (Naturally, you still see it on ebay, but i’m a bit reluctant to entrust the postal service on something this big.)

21/01/11: I think i might be in with a chance of getting one of these as a quick browse of this showed that Forbidden Planet have one up for sale. Fingers crossed it’s genuine. I’ve ordered it, so i guess we’ll know soon enough.  🙂

24/01/11: I just received my shipping notification from  Forbidden Planet.com. It looks like this has shipped. Great News!!!

18/02/11: I took delivery of this today, so that’s a big tick for my collection as this is very hard to find at the moment. First impressions are good. There’s a lot of love gone into designing this.

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.

    I also want one of these. I wanted one when they came out, but I kept waiting to get a good deal (some people reported getting them on clearance for as low as $30) but I never found a cheap one, and now they’re gone. I’m sure it’ll be re-released sooner or later, though.

    Yeah, it’s a pretty decent Falcon to be honest and i’m kicking myself that i didn’t get one at the time. Never mind, next time, she’s mine. 🙂
