This watch (26217) by Invicta has a face that features a cut out aspect of the top of the Millennium Falcon on its watch face and a nice engraving of her on the back too.
This watch has a 52mm stainless steel face, a Swiss, Quartz movement and is waterproof to a depth of 200 metres.
It is limited to an edition size of 1977 pieces and retails on their site for $3, 695. Surely that’s hyperbole, I bought mine on eBay for about £250.
Like the other Invicta Millennium Falcon watch in my collection, this is a bold and chunky watch. I like it and I’m glad to have them in my collection, but I don’t see myself wearing it.
There is also a Han Solo in carbonate watch that I need to get as well. But later, much later.
These Star Wars paintings are by portrait artist Joe Everson are rather nice. I love the broad, colourful nature of his work. There are two Millennium Falcon paintings on his website. The first is this rather impressive 24″ by 48″ painting of the top view of the Falcon. It looks to me like she’s in hyperspace.
It comes with a certificate of authenticity and in addition to a signature, the artist also has imprints his thumb on each of his paintings. A pretty personal and unique touch.
The second is of the Falcon in flight. it’s slightly larger than the other one at 36″ by 48″. Both sold for $2, 000, so I’m just posting for posterity.
Acrylic on canvas, It must take ages to paint with that amount of colour.
There are quite a few Star Wars paintings on his site. Mostly portraiture, with my personal favourite being a simple Imperial Royal Guard. There are a few vehicles there, too, which I have posted here. But only because they fit in with my personal focus better.
Each one really give the impression of speed and movement, in my opinion.
I thought that this poster was an interesting thing.
In the wake of the success of Star Wars, many studios took advantage and released movies to capitalise on the Sci Fi boom it created. Not all of them directly. This Lebanese poster of “Planet of the Dinosaurs” by Tino Aller shamelessly infringes on the copyright and clearly has X-Wings, Y-Wings and the Millennium Falcon.
The premise of this movie is simple. It is the far future, the reactor on a spaceship goes critical and the crew evacuate to the nearest planet with a breathable atmosphere. Unfortunately, the planet is inhabited by dinosaurs. The movie cost $1 million and most of the budget went on the effects. It sank without much fanfare, but the DVD release gave it something of a cult following. Check out this review on The Dusty Reel.
I’m not interested in the movie, but I’d like to add the poster to my collection at some point. As you can appreciate, a 1977 poster is hard to come by. 🙂
I’ve seen the Star Wars Tiki mugs by Geeki Tikis for a while now. They’re a rather cute and fun collectible line of character mugs done in a distinct Tiki style. At this year’s Celebrations, you can pick up one of these Millennium Falcon bowls.
The Han and Chewie Tiki muglets complete and the set is priced at $100.
Overall, I think it’s pretty well done and will try and pick one up after the Celebrations event as they’re collection only.
Thanks to Mighty Jabba for the heads up.
ACME Archives Direct have also released this print by Claudio Aboy called “Luke Feels The Force” showing the scene in A New Hope where Luke is being trained by Ben in the Millennium Falcon while the rest of the crew look on.
I like this one. It’s colourful and should display nicely with other prints located in the Millennium Falcon’s hold. This is also priced at $40, it’s 24″ by 15″ and is limited to 395 pieces.
This is a rather weird and wonderful item for any collection. Corellian Engineering duct tape is listed on the Star Wars celebration.com website and will be available exclusively at this years Celebrations in Chicago.
It’s totally bonkers, but I think rather fitting considering that our favourite “hunk of junk” would need so much duct tape to keep her flying. Its a novelty collectible, for sure.
It’s $15 a roll and I really want to get one for my collection. 🙂
ACME Archives Direct have just released this Lithograph print by Brent Woodside called “Smiles, Lies and Blasters“. Featuring Han Solo and Chewbacca from A New Hope, it’s 35″ by 12″ and limited to and edition size of 250 pieces. They’re $40 each.
