EFX Signature Edition Millennium Falcon


Whilst I was on holiday in France this year (Aux Volets Bleus, a wonderful gite in the Dordogne region that I would totally recommend), EFX announced the release of a signature edition of their Precision Cast Millennium Falcon replica. This edition is limited to a really small run of only 25 pieces and was priced at $3, 000.

I pre-ordered the regular edition some time ago and  after what can only be described as a heroic wait, it arrived earlier this year. Whilst it is not without its faults, (specifically the sidewalls and prominent join  gap on the mandibles), I think it’s a really great model and enjoy it very much. I have it on display in my living room next to my Code 3 version. 

It will feature the signatures of Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Billy Dee William (Lando Calrissian) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), which will be showcased on a special brushed aluminium base.

As you would expect, the guys on the Rebelscum forums gave it a little bit of hell, but as a Millennium Falcon collector I had to get one. It actually sold out in 10 hours, so naysayers be damned.

It’s due to ship in December 2018, but I suspect that some sort of wait may be in order. 🙂

Standby for photos on arrival.

Today, (on Star Wars day, no less), I finally received my SE model. With the sad passing of Peter Mayhew last year, EFX decided to leave his space blank rather than having a computer generated signature on his part. Those who bought one still paid full price, but I think that this is quite a respectful gesture.

Mine is number 25 of 25.

The engraving on my edition number wasn’t completed. You can make it out, but when you spend $3k for something, details like this shouldn’t be missed. Still, it is a small complaint in the grand scheme of things.

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.

      Hi Eric. Some of the guys on the Rebelscum forums have been told that theirs will be shipping next week. I’m not sure what that status of the Pater Mayhew signature is, but i suspect it will be an automated signature.

      I haven’t had notification that mine is being shipped yet.
