$500+ Millennium Falcon May As Well Be In The Movies

Bandai is releasing this 1/72 scale Millennium Falcon model kit that they "almost as precise and accurate" as the actual ones used in the filming of the classic trilogy.

Seeing as the originals were themselves built using cannibalised model kit parts, and that the detail on this is astonishing, it doesn't look like they're kidding.

Prices are expected to be around $510-537 for this thing, which would be expensive for a completed, painted replica. But this is a model kit you'll have to put together yourself -- and there's uncertainty over whether it arrives pre-painted or not -- so that's a lot of cash.

But hey, if it helps it looks just like the real thing and lights up.

    so its the build the millenium falcon magazine as a model kit...

      Not really. The magazine kit was studio scale at 1/32, which is huge. This is 1/72 scale, which is smaller.

      Magazine kit also had some of the interior modelled.
