Millennium Falcon Collection, Day 13: The Legacy Collection

12 OTC 1

OMFG. What else can you say about this thing? I got it from my wonderful, beautiful, sweet, gorgeous, patient, loving, caring, kind wife for our wedding anniversary last year. It is, without a doubt, the greatest single Star Wars toy/play set ever created. Where to start? The thing's loaded with electronics and sounds. There are five or six buttons througout the outer hull, each one that plays multiple sound effects. The engine lights up and glows blue. Any time you move something on the ship, it makes a sound.

12 OTC 9

The landing ramp opens automatically with the press of a button. It makes a sound, and two bright LEDs on the underside of the hull illuminated the ground on either side of the ramp.

12 OTC 8

You can pull the "hidden" cannon out, and it will fire a spring-loaded missile. You can't see it in the above photo, but for the first time an action figure-scale Falcon comes with a lower quad-cannon.

12 OTC 7

On the left side of the ship is a hatch that opens up to reveal the Falcon's escape pod. Opening and closing the hatch, as well as removing and returning the escape pod to its port also play sound effects. On the side of the hull directly above the pod in the photo is a knob that, when twisted, will rotate the satellite dish.

12 OTC 2

The cockpit is large enough to fit four figures. The front seats slide forward and back to accommodate different sized figures. There are lights on the rear bulkhead behind the rear seats. The interior of the cockpit is incredibly accurate...

12 OTC 3

...as is the rest of the interior. The chess table lights up and comes with tiny little figures. The couch around the table is curved just like the real thing.

12 OTC 4

The console and chair Han is sitting at are very close to what is seen on screen, as is the tiny little seat Obi-Wan is sitting on. There is even a training remote included. The same knob that rotates the satellite dish moves the little arm the training remote hangs from. Directly beneath Luke's and Obi-Wan's is the hatch that Han and Lando Calrissian climb through to perform repairs on the ship during The Empire Strikes Back.

12 OTC 5

Although the ship has two quad-cannons, it only comes with one gunnery chair. Not terribly disappointing, though, considering how great this thing is. You can see the lower quad-cannon through the window behind Han.

12 OTC 6

This is the med bay, which is immediately aft of the boarding ramp. There is a small hole which supposedly is going to fit an accessory that comes with a figure or pack of figures later in the line. To the right of the med bay are a set of double doors that allow access to the rear of the ship, but there is no access to what is beyond.

What else can I say. This is an impressive ship, the highlight of my collection. I know its pricey, but I just can't recommend this enough to any Star Wars fan.

After reading your entry, I think this is the best Falcon to date. You are lucky guy to have this as a gift from your wife. :)

very nice pics for this entry. I guess the quality and scale of this version helps, but they're still great:) The shot of the two troopers at the bottom of the ramp could almost pass for a live-action still.

I want that thing so much I'm trying to sell my artwork and even some of my toys to buy it.

These are popping up at ToysRUs again! I thought we'd seen the last of them after Christmas. I figured there would be a recolor or redeco or something before it came back. I guess TRU found some more? Unfortunately the $159.99 price tag has also returned. It's weird because they're blowing out the AT-TEs for 50 bucks.

I haven't seen any in a while, but I guess they'd eventually make their way back out. I'm betting that we'll be seeing these replenished a few times over the next year or so.

I'm soooo mad about seeing the AT-TEs for half what...uh...Santa for the one he got my son for Christmas.

@Shiny: I use a Fuji FinePix camera that's about 5 years old. All the "magic" really happens in Photoshop.
