    Does anyone know, has there been any new info on this like release dates? When going up for sale?Approximate pricing?

    They seemed pretty far along on the prototype so I would hope it would be soon.

    I'm guessing around the same price as the new MR Enterprise...but maybe a little more.

    I don't know where I'm going to put it...but it's a must have.

    Oh man BRING IT ON. I can't wait for this. I've been talking about it around the wife for the last 8 months and I've subtly gone from talking about 'I wish I could get it' to 'WHEN I get it' and she hasn't called me on it yet. We'll see what happens when the preorder comes around but I'm hoping it's a foregone conclusion at this point that I'll be getting this bad boy.

    An absolute must, this.

    BUT - will it be landing gear down?.....

    I don't believe it will have landing gear. All of the pictures shown so far have had it mounted on a rod in the bottom gunwell.

    I have a feeling the MR falcon paint prototype will make an appearance...perhaps my insight will serve me well. I will be there so- if it does I will take some Hi Res pictures

    Oh cool... A Harrison Ford signed edition... Maybe if Chewie can sign it with a print of his paw, that will complete it. I wonder if they have installment plans for this edition?

    Love the look of the custom figs.

    Are they for your personal Artists' Proof or for all production models (hope*hope)?

    It probably will be made known shortly after Comic Con,.. where it is getting unveiled so to speak. It may even be made known there. I would bet around 2K.. possibly a bit more, but hopefully not. :confused I am dying to know as well. ;) Hopefully it will be known soon. :)

    2k - No way - I would guess around $1500.

    Falcon was on display at the Comic Con. It will be $2199 and should be available for preorder in Aug. Looks amazing and is huge.

    If this is representative of the production piece, I'll be VERY happy.

    Now that looks absolutely fantastic.. :thumbsup :thumbsup

    CONGRATS to eveyone involved... it looks like they really did Dean's paint master justice. God, I cant wait to have this thing sitting in my display room. And for far less that than the $3k I was expecting, there might actually be hope now of getting this past my wife :angel

    Call out to Frank and Moe... how would you scale absolute detail accuracy on the bird? Say on a scale of 1 to 100. I'm not trying to rivet count but am curious around what % of parts had to be scratched... for example, it looks like the "pintle" parts that connect to the engine "vectors" have more detail on them than ref pics I've seen. But since you guys had the ultimate in ref pics, just wondering if those are accurate kit parts or are idealized? Again, not at all a criticism, the bird looks absolutely unbelievably phenomenal.. :cheers

    Oh NO - the Enterprise has gridlines on the primary hull - please tell me that's not the final product.

    As for the Falcon - :eek

    Howard - soon to be divorced and living on the street beside two very nice SS replicas.

    As one who stared at hundreds of pics, matching the paint work...using refrence points on the screen used to apply to the MRF...this thing is 99.9% dead on...it is STUNNING....there is sooooo much work that went into the master and soooo many parts in this baby I am surprised it is NOT a grand more. I did not give it 100% for MINOR silly things like a missing notch in one of the panells....

    It is SOLID... well built...HEAVY... BIG.... and just great..

    That's the factory paintjob alright.

    Dean had painted one for display at Comic Con (a beautiful job, as always) but last Thursday the factory version arrived and we were stunned. Not only is it on the base at the angle we wanted, the paint job is amazingly close to Dean's paint master. After the happy dance, we decided this had to be the one on display, since it more accurately depicts what you'll get for your money.

    As for accuracy...It's very, Very, VERY close to original. This thing is awesome. Frank and Moe, Larry and Bryan and Dean did a heck of a job on this bird, not to forget the incredible team of model makers in China who built this baby.

    Way to go guys.

    Barry

    PS The Enterprise does not have lones on the hull in the production version. We tried to see if we could get extremely thin lines on the saucer to assist with the painting of the piece, but it wasn't possible to get them as small as we desired. The only reason they're on the piece that is on display at Comic Con, is because this is the latest lit, and painted engineering sample, with the correct tan weathering on the saucer.
