    Hi all!

    I'm sure that some of you already forgot about that replica, while others must have been browsing the internets everyday for years hoping to finally find one...

    I finally found it after a long quest four or five years ago, a while after the out of stock status of the piece. This ship always fascinated me.

    I have a brand new Code 3 Millennium Falcon, I bought it about 8 years ago and it's been stored in my loft ever since. If I ever find room to display it (which might take a while!!!) I'll post some photo's.

    In the meantime here is a video I have found on Youtube of what it is like. It also has the landing gear which are magnetic and the ramp is also magnetic.



    Although it's not the most screen accurate model, it is die-cast metal and it's quite a rare model to have as they were made in limited numbers

    It's definitely my Star Wars Holy Grail.

    On the day, I was meant to finally receive the holy grail from the castle of a foul-mouthed French settlement the police showed up and shut the whole thing down.

    more seriously, though.. my favorite items include a book on costuming with stunning detail and my light saber.

    Mine is boring, but it's still my holy grail.

    I've always wanted a full set of the original issue (big yellow background series) military figures: all the rebel and imperial officers pilots troops & officers. Just one of each showing The range of designs through the films, all in a display box. I think the extras in military uniforms never got their due in how great detailed and identifiable they were. And the 3 3/4" figures were spot on every time.

    I've never been a collector and feel it would be weird to start now, but hey, if I did, that's what I want.

    I've also didn't start off as collector. I was just a kid that love Star Wars when the OT came out and wanted the toys to play with. Its kinda kinda hard for mine to pick just one. I was proud of my extensive 20 year EU book collection but I lost them when my ex moved out and took the box they were in. I guess the main one would be the only one I display, my Force Fx Darth Vader lightsaber or my original Kenner Millennium Falcon.

    My Holy Grail is my 2010 LEGO Slave 1. I'm really just getting into collecting, and I got it for £40 at a charity shop.
