What a hunk of junk!

But I'm still gonna buy at least one. Maybe up to four. I could use some new coffee tables.

JangoTat, thanks for all the pics!

I cannot believe how excited I am to get my hands on one of these...   


if you guys have any questions about this sucker just go ahead and ask ;)

Can you take a picture of the underside so we can check out the detailing and the guns on the bottom?  Thanks in advance if you can!  :)

Well with the state my camera is in I tried to get the best detailing I could get, but as you may notice the bottom corner is well brighter for some reason. I have been having troubles with this thing for a couple years though. But here are the requested shots, along with one that someone from snowtroopers was asking me about, the storage room.




 And lastly a better shot of the game table, I beleive evenflow requested that one earlier.

Thanks again!  I still can't believe they got the little pop-down "anti-stormtrooper" cannon from ANH on the underside... fantastic!  :)

The old Falcon is completely dwarfed by the new one!  I'm definitely going to hit Toys R Us tomorrow and hope that Western Canada is blessed with the early arrival on the shelf too.  Thanks a million for providing those pics!

The "Flying Hamburger" (B.K.A. The Falcon) has never looked better. I have been waiting 30 years for this. The force is truly with us. ;D

She's got it where it counts, kid.

Never owned a falcon, but glad I waited until now.  I better start making some room.  Serious room.

Jango, you don't need to take a pic of this, but is there room at the front of the ship for Han to stand and make repairs, like he was when he said goodbye to Luke in ESB?

Also, how much assembly was required out of the box?

Thanks again for the pics!

Its hard and will not look the same way as done in the movie but it is possible to get Solo to stand there.

In terms of assembly, there are around 25-30 stickers, attaching the two front "mandables" (which snap in place without any effort) the two cannons, and the radar dish. Its basically all really assembled and it only takes about 10-15 minutes to put the stickers in place depending on how careful you are.

No problem about the pictures, gives me an excuse to take a break while I study :)

magnific shots. congratulations for your BMF!!

Hasbro must made the big At-at with most detailed elements
in that case the BATAT cockpit should hold 4 up to 6 action figures. :)
