I was looking for Millennium Falcon Yo-Yos (i don’t know why. Maybe because the shape of the Falcon reminded me of a yo-yo?) I digress, i came across a photo of a Millennium Falcon pencil sharpener from a company called “Rose art”. I believe that these are from about 1997. I did see one that was going for $55. But there’s no way i’m paying that much for it. I was able to find one on the collectors gallery online (mint on card) for $7.95 plus postage and packing, which is much better.
It should go nicely with my Maruko erasers. 🙂
05/03/11: This came today and it was quite a nice surprise as the collectors gallery didn’t even acknowledge my order. Not good customer service, but they did get this to me very quickly.
I hope your Collector’s Gallery purchase works out. I haven’t had very good luck with them. They don’t always have what they say they have in stock, or it may not be in the stated condition. Nice item, though.
Thanks icruise. I hope so too.
There’s also a pair of Falcon scissors from Rose Art that are pretty ridiculous.
LOL, i’ll have to look out for those. 🙂 Although i must confess that it’s the ridiculous and more obscure items like this that makes me enjoy the focus as much as i do.
