Build the Millennium Falcon
Size indicates its the same size as the MR model, as well as the website stating it's a 1:1 prop replica.
Wow, this looks like a dream come true but would like to know more about it than what they tell you. How many issues will it cover?
Roughly £900 in total...
Then again, the possibility of repainting and super detailing really excite me...
so assuming its one issue a month, it's going to take 7 years to complete, I can see a huge fall out rate over time. I would rather just buy the complete kit and not mess with " the program"
It's 4 issues a month.
Ive got the McLaren F1 car complete in a box for a rainy day, and yes its 4 a month. Ill sign up for this after seeing issue one's quality, no really, best guess its the MR model cheapened down some, as previous model cars are from the likes of Kyosho etc, in other words, a broken down, already existing model pattern!
Hmm, pics I'm seeing of the gun turret, look a bit hoopty, maybe its grown from a Finemolds, hence no real donor part definitions? Interesting though, may bag issue one just for a look see!
It'll be interesting to see what you think, Lee.
Ill go over some MR pics later Howard, can't recall if MR grew the donors to resemble the actual parts or not, but the Deagostini seems a way off going by say, the Flak gun on the turret, ill try go pick up a copy tomorrow and report back, my god, imagine if they just re sized and grew a Revell haha, ouch!
The Finemolds details look better :P
Look at that big photo of the Falcon, they mirrored the mandibules walls lol ! The starboard side is the same than the portside !! OMG :P Not sure if that the actual model they're offering in this pic or just a crap 3D render.
On the other pic of the engine deck, the flaps with the rods are just... oh well it looks like they created some new shape for them !
Looks pretty good, might get a couple of issues to see what its like, thanks for the heads up Howard
It may not yet be released in Australia but I will have to see the first issue before I can say Yay or Nay. Maybe I can use the guns and cockpit for my Hasbro BMF conversion though.
There are two Master Replicas Falcons on the Bay right now, each at over $7K.
Can't switch countries. So I guess we Yanks can't order the magazine.
Well the one I was just looking at was nearly $9000!
I think this is great and will give those that don't have the MR version a change to have something similar for a reasonable price., as for the quail it's of the model itself, it's far too early to say. The magazine looks interesting though, so hopefully we'll see a lot of new artwork.
Overall I'm quite excited about the whole thing.
If the dims are accurate, it will be a great base for superdetailing.
