I did a random search for Millennium Falcon+Disney and came across this site with some rather interesting photos of something called a Pokitpal produced by a company called Olszewski Studios.
It’s difficult to see how big these are, but given the name they can’t be much bigger than 3 or 4 inches. Quite nice though.
From what i can gather, the Millennium Falcon “Pokitpal” is due for release sometime in May 2012. I’ll probably have to check this on Ebay nearer the time as i’d imagine that they will only be available at the Disney sites.
I picked one up off ebay today and they look pretty good IMO. Sort of like a 21st century snuff box. 🙂
Very interesting. I’ve never heard of these before. The page below lists a number of these, including a “Donald Duck in Carbonite” one that I’m sort of interested in. 😉
Yeah, that Carbonite one’s pretty cool.
Maybe I can help a little bit on this one since I live about 70 miles from Disneyland and I’m actually in possession of one of the pieces pictured in the link, though not a Star Wars one. These are tiny tiny boxes that run from around 20 or so dollars at Disneyland. I will have to hunt mine down, but I got my box originally to stash my wedding/engagement ring in. Not much else would fit in there. I think mine is around 1.5×2 inches or so..
You can buy Donald here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Disney-Star-Wars-Carbonite-Donald-Pocket-Pal-/290642831801?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43aba9a9b9#ht_500wt_1069
And the Vader/Storm Trooper here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/DISNEY-OLSZEWSKI-STAR-WARS-DARTH-VADER-POKITPAL-BOX-/290574738401?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43a79aa3e1#ht_2897wt_821
I think if I saw the MF at Dland that I’d have to buy it. It would be an awesome ring keeper!
Thanks Thresea. Quite a handy little collectible then?
