San Francisco Giants Bobblehead


Last September, the San Francisco Giants had a Star Wars day and fans who attended were able to buy several pieces of related Star Wars merchandise, including this bobblehead of the Millennium Falcon over the stadium.

I’d seen these on Ebay for a while and they were being sold for around $100 or higher. At the time, I thought they were pretty expensive, but I decided to take the plunge anyway. I’m not sure whether it was the “limited edition” tag that got me but I figured it’s be a unique item to add to my collection. Especially in the UK where Baseball isn’t a thing at all.

I must confess that I thought it’d be a little thing, but it’s about 7 or 8 inches in length. I’m not sure what it’s made from but it is pretty heavy. Perhaps some sort of resin.

Limited to a edition size of 408 pieces and mine is number 70. I’ve been looking at the Stadium Giveaway Exchange and there are actually quite a few Millennium Falcon related items to collect and I was pleased to see that later this year, you can get a similar bobble of the Millennium Falcon flying over the Fenway Park stadium when the Red Sox go against the Detroit Tigers on April 25th.

I will definitely attempt to pick one of these up too.

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.
