Cinefex Magazine


As a teenager in the 80’s, one of my favourite memories was travelling into London with my friends and spending the afternoon in Forbidden Planet looking at all the cool merchandise. Back then I would mostly browse the books and I was very interested in special effects, at the time and would often walk out with the latest edition of Cinefex magazine.

Cinefex 13 – Return of the Jedi

I had quite a few issues, but stopped collecting them in the early 90’s as I became more interested in girls and beer. I’d completely forgotten about them until I read a review on the wonderfully titled Fantha Tracks website for issue 160 for Solo. I have the Cinefex issue for Return of the Jedi already, but I thought I’d go back and get the other with the Millennium Falcon on the cover, starting with issue 65 which focuses on ILM and Dennis Muran.

Issue 145 for The Force Awakens has a great cover.

The fact that the Millennium Falcon is on four covers from 11 films is pretty impressive and shows just how important she is to the franchise. Unfortunately, Cinefex has now stopped publishing, but you can still get back issues on Ebay.

A long time Science Fiction fan and Star Wars collector, my collection focus has taken a turn towards Han Solo's iconic Star Ship and I thought that i'd start this blog to keep track of my collection of Millennium Falcon related stuff as i progress.
