The molded die-cast metal and resin components make this ultimate Millennium Falcon replica extremely easy to construct, with an unprecedented level of realism.
The sizeable, completed model measures 32-inches long by 23-inches wide.
Hull parts are supplied pre-finished, but expert modelers can apply their own battle scars and weathering to add extra authenticity and personalize the model.
The completed Falcon also has working LED effects, and can be wall- or table-mounted, with the landing legs and boarding ramp displayed in open or retracted positions.
Build your knowledge about the legendary Millennium Falcon and its design and evolution as construction progresses with a full-color magazine that accompanies each month’s shipment of components. Discover how Industrial Light & Magic’s model makers designed and built the many props and sets that were used to bring the Falcon to life on screen. Packed with little known facts and anecdotes, these issues feature rare behind-the-scenes photography and revelations about the real story behind the Star Wars movie magic.
LED Lighting Effects
The Millennium Falcon model includes internal wiring and LEDs that can be connected to an internal battery or external low-voltage power source. Separate systems can be turned on to illuminate the rear sublight drives, forward floodlights and internal cockpit lighting.
The exterior of the Millennium Falcon includes many fully articulated parts that include the upper and lower quad laser cannons and the rectenna dish. The Falcon’s boarding ramp is also movable and will lock into either flight position or landing position for display mounting.
Screen Accurate Interior details
While the outer shell of the Falcon is inspired by the filming miniature used in the movies, it also features removable upper panels that reveal interior details seen in all three movies – including the cockpit, the main hold with its engineering station and dejarik hologame board, gun controls for the quad laser cannons, and Han Solo’s smuggling compartments.
Fanhome Millennium Falcon builders will receive a variety of special additional items at various stages of their subscription that include a limited-edition T-shirt featuring a Millennium Falcon design as well as a hand painted die-cast miniature of the ship, a ceramic mug and baseball cap and special binders to archive all the collected magazines. For a limited time, subscribers paying with PayPal will receive an additional gift from Fanhome – a durable backpack emblazoned with the emblem of the Rebel Alliance and Resistance and an eye-catching Falcon design.
