When it comes to Star Wars when people ask who my favorite character is, I could very easily reply the Millennium Falcon because there is just as much of an emotional connection with that spacecraft as there is with any of the characters in the space opera.  One of the reasons the Millennium Falcon is such an iconic vehicle is probably because most people can relate to having a beat up car at some time in their life that despite its flaws they've loved similar to Han Solo and his spaceship in Star Wars. 

For me it was the used Buick Skyhawk that I purchased as my first car in high school. That car was always overheating and breaking down yet was a source of freedom from the supervision of parents that took me and my friends on a countless number of adventures.  So I've always had a fondness for the Falcon because, like my Skyhawk, despite all its flaws it always came through in the end. Plus through the Falcon, I had the chance to travel to a galaxy far, far away as a diehard Star Wars fan.  In fact, the first time seeing The Force Awakens I unexpectedly became rather upset about how the Millennium Falcon had been abandoned on a junk planet which caught me a bit off guard because who'd think that was the part of the movie someone would get emotional about.

I've thought the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy was a cool ride since first watching A New Hope as a kid in the '70s.  So I was excited to discover this incredible diecast replica of the Millennium Falcon as it was portrayed in the original trilogy of movies from Sideshow Collectibles.  Collaborating with the Lucasfilm Museum of Narrative Arts Archives and utilizing a digital scan of the actual surviving special effects miniature and original model kit parts from the original movie trilogy, the Star Wars Millennium Falcon Star Wars Scaled Replica is an accurate approximate 1:100 scale reproduction of this iconic part of the Star Wars saga.

How cool would it be to have this incredible model displayed on your desk at work or in a home office?!  In addition to intricately replicating the exterior details of the Millennium Falcon, this model also has some impressive lighting effects for the ship's cockpit, headlights and engines.

The model is approximately 8.5" H x 16.25" W X 19" L and rests upon a nice EFX mirror display base.  If you are a Star Wars fan looking for a memento to commemorate this year's 40th anniversary of the debut of A New Hope and the galactic adventures that followed it this would make an excellent collectible to spruce up a home decor or office space with.
