Dejarik Figures from X-Plus


Japanese collectibles company X-Plus have announced a release of eight Dejarik figures based on the recreation of the original figures for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

No information on size or price, but they’re expected to start shipping at the rate of two per month between April and July.

The original rubber puppets used for Star Wars: A New Hope had degraded over the past 40 years. But Phil and his team were able to scan them using a process called photogrammetry to create accurate new 3D models which were then 3D printed, cast, and molded in silicone to be animated, again by hand, for the new trilogy. An original armature used for “Mr. Big” (that guy in the lower right of the photo) was used to scale the new puppets to the same size as those made in the 70’s.”

I’m seriously considering getting these as the link to the Falcon is too strong. However, I would like a scaled Dejarik table to display them on. Maybe even a set of rules.

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 stuff as it increases. Well, that was the plan but it now seems to be more about cataloguing any Millennium Falcon item in general now so that i can come back to them later.
