I just barely got the email today and thought it was a studio scale for that price! I had to re-read the description several times just to make sense of the price. It’s seriously laughable! ...I felt like Joe Dirt reading the Auto Trader.. “saaay whaaa?”$600 ship
+$1,000 Ford sig
+$75 BDW sig
+$75 Mayhew sig
+$1,250 "We can find 25 suckers to buy anything" markup ()
I may have mug written all over me, but as a Millennium Falcon collector, I just can’t ignore this.
I sent them an email expressing my interest and it goes live Friday. I will try and pick one up.
I didn't pick up the Bandai and missed out on the MR back in the day. Always wanted an MR. So I picked up the Deagostini Falcon. Had it all assembled including the missing greeblies from issue 100A. I just sent it off to a pretty experienced model kit painter in my country. I like the fact he painted his own one using pictures of the actual filming model. So he will add in all the dents, blast marks, weathering etc as close as the filming model as possible. Can't wait.I don't think you'll have much trouble getting one.
I finally sold mine. After trying to live with the shoddy details and (particularly) bad paint job, I gave up and sold it. Didn't help that I finally put together my Bandai Perfect Grade... Holy Moly! That thing is without comparison. I have the MR, and the Bandai annihilates it in every way. If anyone is on the fence - just get it. A true modern masterpiece.
