EFX Collectibles has launched their 1:100 scale (8.5″ H x 16.25″ W x 19″ L) diecast Millennium Falcon on Sideshow, complete with lighting effects for the cockpit, headlights, and engines. She’s a beaut. She’s also very pricey. [click to continue…]
Star Wars fan and model builder @HanakiMasatoshi has built a floating mini-model of the Millennium Falcon in celebration of the release of Rogue One in Japan.
As you’ll see, he didn’t use the Force to make it levitate. He used a magnetic system designed by a Dutch company Crealev, which allows an object (up to 20 pounds on some models) to hover. See more in the videos below. [click to continue…]
Tiny Han Solo is one hell of a pilot. He can dock the Millennium Falcon’s Micro-USB with your smartphone every single time. Okay, maybe there’s that one time he tried to dock upside down. Okay, several times.
This Millennium Falcon charger comes with a 34″ long cord illuminated by a blue light strip that animates when charging. There’s a micro-USB plug built into the front of the ship, and thrusters on the back of the Millennium Falcon light up when you’re charging your device from any standard USB port. Just remember, you cannot use the Falcon to charge the Falcon. You plug this into that Quadex power core, and Rey’s gonna have to fix it again.
These gorgeous pictures of the Millennium Falcon on the Pinewood Studios set for Episode VIII were snapped by Oblivion State. Apparently, the location was discovered by a group of urban explorers who had the good fortune to arrive when no filming was taking place—so they were able to examine the set unfettered.
If you’d like an up close look at the Falcon’s exterior and a glimpse of Ahch-To, check out some very pretty pictures below (I didn’t spot anything spoilery). [click to continue…]
In honor of Star Wars Day, Legoland Malaysia debuted a massive recreation of the Millennium Falcon. It features 200,000 LEGO bricks, and comes in at 16-feet long by 12-feet wide. Apparently, that makes it the largest LEGO replica of the Millennium Falcon ever built.
It took father-and-son duo Dan and Christopher Steininger 30 hours to complete the ship. Christopher noted in a personal statement that he always enjoys building LEGO recreations of the Falcon, but this version was special:
“It’s one of my favorites to work on, and this experience is made all the more significant because I get to share it with my Dad!”

One of my favorite things about the Star Wars community is the sense of creativity that it breeds in everyone. Much like the Force, inspiration permeates from the saga, inspiring fans to bring it to life in creative and awesome ways.
When Star Wars fan Tristan Elliott picked up the Hasbro Battle Action Millennium Falcon from The Force Awakens, that spark of inspiration reached the 23-year-old artist and graduate from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design. His paint job turned a plain toy into a movie-ready model.
Check out Tristan’s process below.
It was only a matter of time before someone clever put up files so that you could 3D-print and build your own Millennium Falcon model.
Well, not only has that happened, but this thing is detailed. Like, 2-3 months to print and another month to assemble kind of detailed.
A team of engineers at Gambody spent months designing this 1:34 scale Millennium Falcon. Currently comprising 176 individually-printed parts and available to purchase for $74.99, the design covers the top and bottom hulls of Solo’s homestead.
Oh, but it doesn’t end there.
This is going to seem ever-so-slightly biased, but did you know that geeks are brilliant? Smart, sexy, creative, there’s nothing they can’t do.
Take crafty crafter
Han Swanson Martin Creaney, for example. The man is an insanely talented woodworker, as evidenced by his massive and entirely wooden recreation of the Millennium Falcon. Far from a piece of junk, the level of detail on Creaney’s creation is, frankly, obscene. I thoroughly intend to find it and give it a big wet snog.
Check out a video and additional photos of this piece below (along with some other amazing creations).
LEGO/Star Wars fan marshal banana recently completed the ultimate tribute to Han Solo and his flying bucket of bolts. Marshal spent the last year designing and building a replica Millennium Falcon from Episode VII, and the finished product includes an incredible 7,500 LEGO pieces!
To put that into perspective, the Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon is biggest official Lego set ever made with 5,000 pieces (and a current price tag of $6,000).
This 22-pound Falcon clocks in at roughly three feet in length (total dimensions come in at 82 x 54 x 18 cm), and features engines and quad laser cannons that light up.
