Just be careful not to lose any screws and take your time...if neccessary you need to unscrew the grey inlet also... and be aware that you might cut some of the inner stickers, since they positioned over the upper & under hull...
Can anyone point me in the right direction? Great forum by the way, the new films have renewed my Star Wars collecting fever and the forum is a great resource.Has anyone ever modded the electronics so that all the lights stay on with a switch, without any of the sounds?
That's something I'd like to consider for display purposes.
Yea, I was watching the prices go up and up over the last few years hoping it would get a re-release. I finally decided the chances of a re-release was getting less and if I wanted one I better get one now. I don't think I could bring myself to modify mine like hanSano did. I am envious of his though.

I ended up giving 300 for it. It works great and it came with a few extra figures. It is missing a few missles the dejarik pieces, the drop down cannon and training ball. All the landing gear is in good condition.If you don't mind me asking how much (approx) did you end up paying for one?
Is it normal for stickers like this to dry out (he said this happened after a little over 7 years in storage)? I have a lot of boxed vehicles I've never got around to opening either. I opened a Clone Wars AT-TE this weekend, applied the stickers and they seemed fine. Did the same for a couple of 25th anniversary G.I. Joe vehicles from about the same timeframe and while the G.I. Joe stickers are of a very different, plasticy style than Star Wars stickers, they also seemed to attach well.I had opened it up once and played with the electronics for a while, but put it away before assembling it. I finally decided to get it out the other night and everything is in good shape, except that the stickers are dried out and falling off of the sheet.
Thanks bonoferox! Agreed on the Leia, she is my favourite version of the character and one which I think we can call the definitive version.Very nice!
I need to do that with mine sometime soon. I was just glad to finally get the Hoth Leia to put in it for an asteroid field chase shot.
Keep it and display it right next to the fine molds to show how accurate in Detail a Toy can be...i am currently collecting the DeAgostini Parts and compare them from time to time with the Legacy Falcon...and i am amazed everytime a new...I would not get ride of this piece under any circumstance. Keep it.
I bought the TVC one for the box, but it just sits in my closet. I wonder if I should see what its worth these days/I got the beautiful Falcon during the Legacy collection...so now I'm pretty much just looking for TVC release...but only the box. I really, really, really want that box. But I have a feeling I'll never find it solo.
Nice looking work there.!I LOVE this Millennium Falcon SOOOOO Much!
I am actually having a LARGER custom-made box created for her so that I can store her without having to disassemble the mandibles.
I lit and photographed my Falcon for the box graphic and added some Legacy Collection Big Wing Tie Fighters (my favorites) in hot pursuit!! :grin:\
The tourniquet came, IIRC, only with the Saga-era Bespin Luke. That would be the great figure marred by a big white button at his waist.Bought one of these babies for 200$ the other day on craigslist, complete. It was only missing that little medical thing Luke had on. Albeit, it came with an ATTE, about 5 other average sized ships that I didn't really want but what the hay! Plus around 25 figures. I think it was a pretty good deal.
