Swarovski have made a few Star Wars ships in their signature crystal and I’ve always had a little soft spot for the line, especially after seeing them in the flesh. The figurines were really well made and about the same size as the Kenner action figures. The weight was pretty substantial which did impress me. Naturally, I wanted the Millennium Falcon but £12, 000 for their limited edition crystal encrusted Falcon is way too rich for my blood.
This Millennium Falcon crystal is what i wanted and much more in my price range. Crafted from white crystal with grey and blue detailing, the ship is created using 715 individual cuts. It has metal accents on the quad guns and the rectenna and a matching metal stand. I think it’s quite pretty and will try and add it to my collection.
The ship dimensions are 14.8 cms long, by 10.6 cms wide and 9.5 high which is about the same size as the Franklin Mint Millennium Falcon. It retails for £450, which is quite reasonable, I think.
