I’ve been low key following MYC sculptures for a while now as they have a really nice line in sculpted figurines and model ships from the Star Wars franchise. Today they announced that they will look to release a Millennium Falcon model from A New Hope.
What is also interesting is that we well as releasing a 32″ version, there’s also going to be a smaller 1:48 version which is about 28″ (72 cms).
The 32″ “Studio Scale” will be my preferred model as it’d pair very nicely with my Master Replicas Millennium Falcon model. More information to follow, but this is wonderful news.
MYC Sculptures also tend to offer a choice of bases. For example, their AT-AT model can be bought with a plain base, a base with a couple of minimalist snowy rocks, or a Hoth diorama. This could be interesting. Will it be displayed in flight, or landed? If landed, what choices on the base design would they offer?
Some small news. rebelfire on the RS forums posted this pre-order schedule and the Falcon is up for pre-order in December.
All we need now is a 32″ Falcon as we see her in Solo.
22/04/2023 – So a quick update on this, thanks to LightSword on the Rebelscum Forums. Robert Cowley from the SCIFI Studio Modellers club posted these images on his Facebook page of the build. I’ve got to say that she’s looking fabulous.
The attention to detail is meticulous and it really looks fantastic. I hope they can keep this in the production version. This could end up superceding the Master Replicas Studio Scale as the definitive Millennium Falcon collectible.
The render has been completed and is now in the prototype phase. Once that’s done, we’ll get an announcement on price etc.
The detail looks fantastic. A shame we don’t get a photo of the underside.
Thanks again to Lightsword on the Rebelscum Forums for posting.
