Get a full tour and review of the 2.5-foot Star Wars Legacy Collection Millennium Falcon from Hasbro, but none other than producer/writer Jesse Alexander. He’s worked on such geektastic shows as “Heroes,” “Alias” and “Lost” — and has the Emmy on his desk to prove it.
This is one of the best ways to check out Hasbro’s massively detailed Millennium Falcon. Jesse shows us what’s inside, what the buttons do when you push them, and gives us a preview of all the glorious sound files. He not only has this great video, but also writes out a few of his initial impressions about the Falcon here on Gizmodo:
This Falcon’s paint job is slick. And so detailed I’m guessing it must’ve been done by next-gen droids, or Jawa slave children with very small hands. All the tech in this Falcon is state of the art. She’s got sound effects up the gundark. Triggered via multiple buttons strategically placed around her sturdy Corellian hull. The orange light at the rear of the cockpit is cool. As is the sweet blue band of engine light that accompanies the jump to hyperspace. But my fave feature has to be the twin LED’s that illuminate when the boarding ramp slowly lowers at the touch of a button. Perfect for lighting up the squishy floor of any odd looking asteroid cave.
One can only hope this magnificent spice smuggler heralds an approaching renaissance from the boffins at Hasbro. The build quality, attention to detail, and sheer number of features on the Legacy Collection Falcon will raise the expectations of Star Wars Fans the republic over. Owning your own freighter ain’t cheap. You may need to sell your mint in-box landspeeder from ’77 to cover the cost. But she’s worth it. See you on the Kessel run! I think 11 parsecs is doable!
