Build The Millennium Falcon Magazine

Postby Tom@Crewe » Fri Jan 02, 2015 8:27 am

Build The Millennium Falcon Magazine - Who falls for this?

100 weeks at £8.99 a pop that's a total of approx £900 and a 2 year build.

If you want a Millennium Falcon & a Star Wars fan - Why not just Buy a large kit from model shop, Buy books on Star Wars, Join the Star Wars club and still have money left over for a weekend away!

I just don't get the people who buy these mags.
Never enough time...........

And there's no guarantee that the series won't stop part way through - or so it appears from previous 'part-builds' which I have seen.

Obviously enough people to make the magazine viable, but certainly not me

All of these partworks are the same really, not sure if you have seen this site, but this is the second attempt to launch it stopped after 6 issues last time.

Have you eve listened to Fags, Mags and Bags, its a comedy series they did on Radio 4, it had a fantastic episode on partworks.

Sounds like a bargain to me seeing as tho its being described as a 1:1 scale model, you would need some space for that!! However i think they mean its a 1:1 scale film prop :lol:

Yes, I noticed the ear-catching use of language.
At 1:1 it would be a bargain at £900, as you could live in it.

Don't know what The Millennium Falcon is? --- If you can live in it, it must be big. Would you need planning permission?

As it comes with quadruple laser cannon, under the "Putin Principle", no.

I think you're all being a bit unfair bandying this figure of £900 around.

The first one's only £2.99 - I make it a grand total of £893 - now that IS a bargain :D

You could do a lot with that spare seven quid - like start collecting another partwork!

As it doesn't exist in real life who's to say what size 1:1 is?! They do say in the advert that it is 1:1 of the film prop, though...

In relation to the "1:1 scale" thing, the advert I saw today said "a 1:1 scale model of the model used in the films".
