Millennium Falcon


4 comments posted

Your Code 3 reviews have almost inspired me to try and hunt these down. Such great pieces. Hard to believe they didn't catch on. I guess they got lost in the tidal wave of Star Wars products.

Skimming the pics at first, I was going to comment on how the mirrored base is a great addition, but I take it the mirror is something you added yourself, right? So many great pieces have details hidden because of lack of a mirrored base or back plate. :-)

Thanks for sharing these. Very nice work.

Thanks for the comments and I am always amazed they did not catch on better. The vader ship goes for like 80 dollars and is a metal ship the size of a volley ball...I will say the quality on vader and gunship is less (their bases are not a shined black acrylic but a dust gathering cheap black felt)

Yeah they are separate (i should have written a note) 12" rotating bases by AutoArt. can get pretty cheap ( i got mine for around 5 bucks each in a batch auction)...see around 15 commonly. They are for die-cast cars but work great for anything vehicle like.

Excellent review!

An excellent thorough review.
While I love the diecast, something very basic prevented me from getting this - it looks like the MPC kit, which is not very screen-accurate.
For accuracy the assembled and painted Falcon from Fine Molds easily takes the cake, and comparing the two really brings out the differences, but for neatness and sheer mineral content, the Code 3 looks well-fortified.

Can't find one!?

Hi AJ,

I can't seem to find a Code 3 Falcon. Been searching for some time now. Where did you find your items?
