View Full Version : Good God that MR Falcon is the coolest.

If anybody has checked out coverage of the SDCC, their studio scale Falcon totally waxes the Code 3 Falcon. I'm terribly afraid of what the cost will be on something so incredibly cool. Man, with the light up engines and cockpit, this thing is pretty close to the Holy Grail.

:love:

Here's a quote from Yodasnews:


If so, it is going to cost ya. The Millennium Falcon Studio Scale goes on sale July 25th at 9 a.m. PST for their Collector's Society members, and for the general public July 27th at 9 a.m. PST. The MF will begin shipping late winter, and the edition size is 1500... But wait, there's more!

For the first time, Harrison Ford has teamed up with MR to include his signature with 500 Millennium Falcon pieces! On sale at the same time as the regular Studio Scale, the Signature Edition piece will be $2,799.

And if you are a CS member, don't forget to use your coupon! I've searched for pictures but came up empty handed. When I read it I thought of this (http://afigures.com/g/?mode=view&album=Star+Wars%2FHasbro&pic=newa1.jpg&dispsize=800&start=45) but I'm not 100% sure if this is MR or not. If it is then they're also coming out with an ENOURMOUS Dagobah as well.

Judging by the $2,800 price point I think I may be correct though.

That's the Attakus falcon you linked to there slick, it's scaled to roughly 3 3/4 figure size. bloody huge as well. I'd rather have the Attakus version than a full falcon but still wanna see the MR piccies just coz people are saying it's so good.

That's it!!! I couldn't think of the name of the company for the life of me. It's not the MR one but the Attackus one does go for around $3,000 or so.

Much like Jarg...er...MY DADDYSPANTS I'd rather have the Attackus one.

Mr DP, for a couple of pics you can head to the SSG homepage, click on SDCC coverage, then head on into the MasterReplicas "studio scale" area. Three pics, but it's enough to see the detail (though hard to appreciate the scale of the piece).

Or you can just click this: http://photos.sirstevesguide.com/showgallery.php?cat=4931

Here is a link to a gallery at RS that shows the new MR Falcon lit up. I assume it will cost more than your average MR toy, but I would be hugely surprised if it went for anything near what the Attackus diorama goes for. $3,000 is a lot of loot.

Sweet.

Thanks for the link JON9K. That is definitely a sweet piece. The light up feature in the cockpit is an added plus.

it's very cool looking and the detailing is excellent. What scale is it? what's the overall dimensions?

It's "Studio Scale", so it's whatever the real shooting prop's scale was since it's based directly on that. I unfortunately don't know what the shooting prop's scale was.

This thing looks stunning, like "why aren't a rich millionaire already?!?" stunning, the kind of collectible you hope someone you know will buy just so you can see it in person.

Your wish is granted. :D Steve just called me to confirm the exciting news. I think we're gonna be able to get pics tonight, but I can't guarantee that quite yet.

Can we nail a price for the regular version? It said in the news that the sig edition will be $2799.

actually I think looking at further pics i still prefer the Attakus diorama version. Not so sure about the death star setting for it but the thing is scaled to hasbro's figures. I'd rather have that than a pure display piece. Maybe MR are spot on with detail but strangely i don't like it. even with the light up elements.

so, it is that expensive after all. Too bad. Still, nice to know such a remarkable thing exists.

The non-signature version is $2199 I believe. If I had $2200... I'd pay some bills, but if I had $22,000 right now... I'd pay some more bills. ;) But if I had a "spare" $2200, I'd totally buy this sucker, I don't care that I don't have any place to put it, I'd MAKE a place to put it, I'd throw away my coffee table or something.

exactly how big is the Falcon? Nobody is in the foregorund of any picture I have seen to give it scale.

From what I've seen the size of the base for the Falcon is 38" wide x 30" deep. Roughly. That's huge !

I know, not that close, but it does give some sense of scale... it's big.
