Millennium Falcon chess piece by Danbury Mint.

Ebay have a couple of very interesting items today. Back in 1996, Danbury mint released a rather nice Star Wars chess set with the Millennium Falcon as the queen. pasquariellocorp is selling the piece (paired with an Ewok Pawn)  here.

It’s a very interesting piece and one that i’d imagine doesn’t come up too often. If Mike doesn’t have this, i might bid for it when i get paid. (That’s if they’ll ship to the UK.)

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 do have this and I love it. I like how the Falcon is literally put on a pedestal! I looked up my old receipt and in 2007 I paid $28 shipped for just the Falcon. I know these don’t come around much, but this does seem a bit overpriced.

    Very nice item indeed. If I may add, I also want one of this?
