If you’ve been keeping up with what Fanhome have been doing in recent months, you’ll know that they’ve put together some of the most enticing collectable subscriptions around. Today we’re bringing you the word on their latest iconic model to build. A few hints – She’ll make .5 past light speed, she can outrun imperial starships, and not the local bulk cruisers – the big Corellian ships. She’s been won and lost in games of Sabacc. She’s one of the most recognisable ships in galaxies here and far, far away. And soon she could be yours…
And if you still can’t guess what we’re talking about, we have just one question:
It’s a marriage made in heaven – Fanhome’s impeccable eye for detail and understanding exactly what fans want combined with the legendary status of the Falcon. If you’re a Star Wars fan you may remember our first report, when we showcased Fanhome’s exquisite Star Wars Starships & Vehicles just over a year ago.
Eager fans of the other Star-monikered sci-fi series are already well catered for with the this perfect companion piece to this new subscription. So, now you have answer to the question concerning the two most iconic starships in the skies – Millennium Falcon or U.S.S. Enterprise…
Here’s an excellent look from Fanhome themselves of the ocean of awesomeness you’re about to dive into.
Build your own Millennium Falcon – Fanhome
The choice was made to focus on the iconic Millennium Falcon model from The Empire Strikes Back. Arguably this was the film that took the coolest ship in the Star Wars galaxy and made it a character in its own right. As is the way with Fanhome’s subscriptions, the model you’ll be building is movie-accurate; it is a replica built to the highest degree of authenticity – a sure way to impress fans of the biggest sci-fi series of them all.
You can find out all the details of what you’ll get, as well as the chance to begin your subscription right here at Fanhome.
How the final model shapes up…This is what you’re building towards – perfectly made Metal and ABS parts with illuminated thrusters, cockpits and other lights, built as a faithful reproduction of the best known Corellian YT-1300f (with some idiosyncratic modifications thanks to a number of unique owners) in the skies.
Each issue brings with it another piece of the easy-to-assemble kit, with articulated parts and some very impressive details. As fans we’ve had over forty years of watching this unique starship on screen and now we have an amazing chance to build our own.
If you’re a Fanhome subscriber you’ll know their dedication to authenticity as well as their innate understanding of what it means to be a fan. And you can tell how many of the Fanhome people love Star Wars. Along with each kit arrival, you’ll also receive a bespoke magazine with the all-important building instructions to help you complete your very own Millennium Falcon.
But again – that’s not all.
Fanhome clearly know their way around the Jedi Archives and Star Wars lore. The magazines are filled with history of the Falcon, tales of its importance to the fate of the galaxy and of our beloved heroes, as well as technical details and in-galaxy tech specs and engineering blueprints. Ensuring you won’t need a Wookiee to fix it for you along the way.
As part of your subscription you’ll receive a number of free gifts including a handsome binder to keep your magazines safe, as well as a silver Fastest Hunk of Junk in the Galaxy mug, a Falcon cap and more. If you start now you’ll receive this fine Falcon blueprint t-shirt
So – what are you waiting for? There’s never been a better time to be a Star Wars fan – and who wouldn’t want to be the captain of their own Millennium Falcon..?
